      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 might as well have made in June 1st and it wouldn't have made a difference. There won't be ice anyway. This is another one of our brilliant legislators that wanted to get his name on something. These guys have no idea what they are even voting on. If you have ever talked to these guys, there are very few that have any common sense.

I received the following info from the DNR, regarding the non-resident spearing question.

"The following web site contains the bill language that was signed by the Governor dealing with fish and game law changes https://www.revisor.leg.state.mn.us/laws/?id=368&doctype=Chapter&year=2008&type=0 . It is my understanding that they did not pass a law to allow non-residents to dark house spear. To allow it, they would have had to authorize a non-resident dark house license, which I was not able to find on the site."

From my understanding, the bill did not pass. I also heard that the MN Darkhouse Assn did not support the current language of that bill. I heard that the MN Darkhouse Assn prefers language that restricts non resident spearing to states that allow it.

Although I fully support the MN Darkhouse Assn and the hard work they do, I can only hope that they re think this one if this is true.

I have family in AZ that have never been on a frozen lake before. I think it would be wonderful to have them come up north and actually get to spear a fish.

I don't expect AZ to allow Darkhouse spearing on their lakes anytime soon. laugh

Why restrict non resident spearing only to the northern states?

That don't make much sense to me, but I have been wrong in the past.
