      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 .

Pro fishing guide question

Recommended Posts


Is there a state agency that regulates or licenses fishing guides in Mn.
Without getting into the who's and where's I was just wondering how to report a bad experience with a guide.
This has to do with bad equipment.
Thanks, Dan

You can guide in Minnesota without a license. However, you had better not "fish for hire" on Lake Superior or on the Mississippi without a valid Captain's license via U.S. Coast Guard testing and licensing.

You can report your experience to the DNR and they will judge to what response is appropriate and warranted.

The nature of the complaint will determine their actions.

Be sure you have your facts straight, or you may be held liable if the guide thinks you are slandering him or her. It could backfire?

I would bring it up with the guide first, then see if further action were needed.

In ND if the offence is deemed a sufficient infraction of ethics or possible criminal the guide will get his license revoked, possibly for life.

In MN I am not certain what they will do?

You also need that CG OUPV {6-pack} license to guide on LOW. Any other waters deemed a "navigable waterway" by the Coast Guard require this also, or you may be fined up to 10,000 dollars.

I am asking the question for a friend but he tells me that it involved a poor running trolling mtr. The Motor wouldn't iddle down slow enough without killing.
The guide didn't charge him for the half day trip. He is not interested in reporting him. We were just curious if guides were licensed , required to have insurance and if the boats are inspected.
Thank you all for your replies
Dan
