      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 .

i've been seeing a bunch of large snapper turtles while bowfishing and wondering if anyone knows the regs on sticking a couple with my bow

Why?

Aren't there enough carp to shoot at?

You could shoot them after July 1 before but the wording in the book has changed so it doesnt specifically say anything about bowfishing. I've tried to contact the DNR for clarification but havent gotten a response. If anyone finds out anything for sure post it up.

Page 69 under turtles; Harvest by traps,nets,or other equipment requires a additional turtle license.

You'll have to contack the DNR for the meaning of other equipment.

merkman... have you ever had turtle? its great.

No, I never have.

I might have to try it someday.

I didn't know you planned to eat it.

I would just hate to see turtles get shot and left on a farmers field.

Turtle is actually quite good. Seems to me though that I also remember seeing that you need a special liscense to take them legally.

currect, i believe. only need a fishing license if taking by hand or angling. i do believe there is a limit but i would chack further as i dont believe its legal to take turtle right now because/ or until they lay there eggs. aug 1 comes to mind, not sure.
