      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 .

"Manitoban's Prepairing To Do Battle"

Recommended Posts

A Lot of you are somewhat aware that there's controversy surrounding our resources here in Manitoba. Yes, some of the controversy revolves around "age old treaties" that were signed many generations ago. These treaties were concocted by the governing bodies of that era to ease the pain of displacing an entire culture from their native lands! It was all part of the Indian Act and if were to be honest it was a hugh mistake. The creation of reservations did nothing more than segregate an entire culture from society. After all when people who immagrate to Canada or the U.S. they're not placed in isolation. They simply become part of out society. Unfortunately what's done is done and it's obvious that we can't turn the clocks back in order to resolve this situation.
We have to take a more sensible approach to the issues that we are facing in todays society. Aboriginals with absoluetly no restrictions "gill netting" for substance on "World Class" sport fishing venues simply makes no sense. We as a responsible society must be willing to negotiate with the powers that be in order to ensure the future and well-being of "OUR" resources.
Here in Canada the powers that be at both federal and provincial levels, have been doing very little if anything to bring these issues under control. To date there hasn't been enough public interest or intervention to contest these issues, this simply allows the governing bodies to simply turn the proverbial cheek and aviod the issue. The ostrich when it feels threatened, buries its head in the sand. Here In Canada our politicians display the utmost and unique display of becoming contortionists when avoiding confrontaion. No they don't bury their heads in the sand rather they display the unique ability of burying their heads up their A##@@@@@!
Enough is enough and now the time has arrived to make out voices heard and that's exactly what's now developing here in Manitoba aswell as other regions of Canada.
Were simply fed up with the powers that be who apparently have no sympathy or repect for "OUR" resources!
Stay tuned it's going to get interesting!

Fish "Hard" Forever!

Well said indeed Stu!

The political powers that be need to understand the long range picture to the resources and the Manatobian economy. Tourism will suffer, local economies will fail, family's will be in distress.

This issue has powerful effects on the entire Red River basin, and beyond.

The sooner they begin addressing the issues, the better for all.

Keep up the good work Stu!

Good Info!

I remember growing up the Wisconsin harvests. Our lake went to 1 daily limit walleye. My Dad sold our cabin soon after. Who wants to go to a hard earned retreat to bring home one walleye.

Then to follow, the Red Lake overharvest, and soon to follow, (now), the decline of a great fishery like Mille Lacs. It's sad. Now I see you guys are dealing with it like we have down here. I hope you're government is a little more hardcore on this issue.

Well, short, but sweet! Good fishin guys!!
