      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 .

Seining questions?

Recommended Posts

I just bought a seining net for bait and I have a few questions. I used to either use a minnow trap, or just a fishing pole and catch my bait out of a local creek. This spring the creeks havent cooperated much for me to throw my traps in, and fishing for them doesnt work out well either in the heavy current. So I bought a seining net.

My questions I have are , can I seine out of a lake for bait? I know of a bullhead infested lake, can I just seine it, or can I only seine creeks? Next question is about the minnow traps, can I throw them into a lake as well? I guess my question is can you trap and seine bait out of lakes?

I know I could probably just look up the info in the regulation book, but most of the time when I do that, I am more confused afterwards.

Yes, you can seine the lake. Here's the kicker.

If it's listed as an infested waters, then you can only use the bait on the same lake.

If the lake is not infested, then there shouldn't be any issue.

On I thought that they made it illegal to use them this year. I know last year the DNR was having alot of problems with people using them but it not in the regs they couldn't do a thing. I will look it up again but i'm pretty sure that they made it illegal. Which is gay, thats how I caught my jumbo shinners.

You can put your minnow traps in lakes. Just make sure you have a tag on them with your name and address. Traps are supossed to have this tag no matter where you use them. Mine don't but i usually put them by my house, or someone steals them from me mad
