      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 .

motors on WMA's?

Recommended Posts

I just moved to South Central MN from Iowa. I bought a small carstens duck boat with a 5 hp go-devil. Can I use this boat and motor on some of the wma's around albert lea, specifically Upper and Lower Twin?

There are a few that are open to motors. Those waters that are completely enclosed by WMA land tend not to be. If you are wondering about a specific WMA, send an e-mail to the DNR, they can tell you for sure.

I was told before, if the lake is 100% surrounded by WMA you cannot use a motor. If the lake has one part of it being a WMA, lets say just the southern bay. But the rest is a reg lake. You can motor in the WMA boundries. Its basically a recreationall lake with some public land attached.

As stated above though, check with the DNR and if they say ok, KEEP A COPY WITH YOU. One CO's interpretation of the law is differant from others.
