      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 .

They lifted the spearing bans on several lakes as posted above. Not all lakes but it's a start. 

Any special length regulations on those lakes still apply.

I live across the street from Tonka and had planned to pretty much give up spearing, at least not put my own house out next year.  Now I am building a new spearhouse and am excited for the upcoming season.  Those big Tonka carp should be fun, and finding clear water not stacked with other spearhouses near home might not suck.

An fyi for those going to spear Tonka, there is a rule of having no ice blocks on the ice.  So either push your block under, or be prepared to load it in the back of your truck. link to LMCD winter rules pdf, page 3

What lakes still have a spearing ban?  Pleasant?

Well I'm sure Tonka will be Mille Lacs Jr next year filled with houses, hopefully its not to bad

It might end up taking some of the pressure off the lake from those who live in the metro area. There is a lot of good fish able water on tonka. I just hope we don't see any issues with people going swimming. That lake claims a lot of people every year. Most in the type of areas that spear fisherman might be targeting.
