      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Is culling walleye on the Canadian side of Lake of The Woods allowed?

Recommended Posts


According to the rule book, culling is allowed if the fish have been placed in a live well with sufficient capacity (15 gallons, I think) and an automatic areator. My friend found this information buried somewhere in the book a couple years ago while we were at LOTW. I will try to find the exact verbage and pass it on to you.

BTW, I'm not "Officially" Canadian but both my parents were born in Quebec Province, so I am eligible to provide an answer to your question :-) grin.

East... answered the question but here it is for anyone who doesn't want to look it up:

Generally, daily catch limits include all fish that are retained for any period of time and not immediately released.

Anglers fishing from a boat may catch, hold, and selectively live

release more walleye, northern pike, largemouth or smallmouth bass

than the daily limit, provided:

(a) the fish are held in a livewell with a mechanical aerator operating

at all times (see Anglers Guide, page 8, for livewell requirements),

(B) the fish comply with any applicable size limits,

© the Sport or Conservation Fishing Licence daily catch and retain

limits for walleye or northern pike are not exceeded at any one time,

(d) no more than six largemouth or smallmouth bass (or any

combination) caught under a Sport Fishing Licence are retained at

any one time, and

(e) the Conservation Fishing Licence catch and retain limits for

largemouth and smallmouth bass (or any combination) are not

exceeded at any one time.

Anglers are reminded to closely monitor the condition of fish held

in a livewell. Only fish that are in such a condition that they will

survive may be released (see Tips on Live Release of Fish, page 10).

Releasing a fish that will not survive and allowing the flesh of that fish

to be wasted is an offence. Any fish not li

    • I took a short ride the other day but still a little chilly out in the breeze. Streets were pretty good as they were out sweeping them before the last snow. Saw a lot of bikes out the last couple of days. Don't forget to put your new licence tag on as I almost did.
