      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 .

who would go to jail?

Last summer we took a friend and his daughter (she is 23) fishing with us. We assumed that they were legal. However, last weekend while sitting at our favorite watering hole he was telling someone that he has never had a fishing license. What happens if we get checked and he does not have a license? Do they just fine him or do they take it out on the poor person that owns the boat and has no idea what is going on? They are all excited about going fishing again with us this summer and I really enjoy them but not enough to get a fine for them.

I dont know what a C.O. would do! But I think another ? remains. Would you "even" consider taking them fishing again ? They may have put you and your property in jeopardy because they cant part with a few dollars for the privledge of fishing. Then to bragg about it is the icing on the cake. I myself would feel ashamed of such a thing. I would rethink the word friend in consideration of these people. Only my .02
Good Luck

Ninetoe is right. If the individual won't part with the price of a license he doesn't belong on the water period... Nobody gets in my boat without a license...

I have to agree, how do you feel when he sits in your boat and catches more fish than you, or any fish for that matter? And here you sit paying for your privilege to fish. Essentially he is stealing from you and everyone else. Tell him to get one or you don't feel it is appropriate taking thief fishing in your boat.

Ditto the above. The couple fooled you once. A repeat makes you the fool. It is their responsibility to be responsible.

Dont you just love it when friends put you in that position. Call them up and invite them to go again. Then make it clear they will need a license. I think you are feeling uncomfortable haveing to tell them they need to be legal. Dont be! Dont let it nag on you, call them and get it over with. smile.gif
Whats the worst he can do. Slip an onion in your sandwich? grin.gif

Whoa..."Fool me once, shame on you..Fool me twice, shame on me"!
And you could lose your whole rig(boat,motor,trailer,equip,and even the vehicle you towed it there with + the fine) if the CO got real uptight about it!

the folks here are right. if those people don't have any more respect for you or the great resources in minn, let them sit home. tell them to buy a license and make them show it to you. del

I also agree, people that fish should always have a license. The question was whether or not he would get in trouble because of his friends stupidness. The CO's would ticket him, and you would be free to fish.

I agree with all of you! I just could not believe that anyone would risk going out without a license besides the fact that they are not paying their dues to help like all the rest of us are. They are not going with me again without one that is for sure. I just wanted to know how close I came to being behind bars. grin.gif But if he puts an onion in my sandwich that would be even worse! There just is not enough beer in the cooler to take care of that problem. Thanks guys!

It depends on the CO. I know CO's that would at least attempt to make life miserable for both of you and have known others that would take the offender for a ride to get him a license, fine him and tell him to have a good day. The second scenario happened to a friend of mine a few years ago who, in the excitement of getting out for early season crappie fishing, made an honest mistake and just plain forgot to get his license.
If put in your position, I would simply explain to him that by choosing not to obey the law he is potentially putting your reputation at risk and that's just not what one expects from a friend.
Then I'd get the cell phone out and dial the TIP line to make sure he got the point.

I am not certain that you as the host are responsible for or liable for checking your partners for a fishing license?

They are aware they are fishing and therefore should reasonably know that regulations need to be obeyed.

It would appear to be more of a case of personal accountability then a case of fault of the host for not asking if they are in compliance with state regulations.

Guilt by association shouldn't apply if you are in compliance.

If they were to tell the CO that you knew all along they had no license and have never had one, you may be liable for aiding and abeding in the unlawful taking of fish! Like the others have said, put it to them straight forward, no license, no fishing!!

Hey PWaldow do you think I could convice the husband that the cooler is too small so we need a bigger boat to hold a bigger cooler? Maybe that would get me that new Lund?

    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
    • Lots of bears being seen around Princeton not on baits just roaming around.
    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.      
    • Because it was about a decade ago I was on that goofy end of town. I knew it. Now yer gonna  waste time fooling around with that souse-o-matic on that poor corn, when two ears in the 'wave, in a covered glass dish with some water for around 3 minutes comes out perfectly delicious. 
    • Let us know by first ice - just saying.  But he is great to work with so don't get me wrong.
    • 3 smallies in 30 min yesterday. 
    • That is the truck that I always buy from, they park at the detailing place that used to be a car wash.  Why were you talking about Super America? They haven't been there for a decade. But either one would be a pretty long drive at the moment. Might have to try sous vide on some...when I get there.
