      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 .

Do I need to get a 2009 license if...

Recommended Posts

I only plan on fishing for carp, and rough fish on the Mississippi this coming spring? Reason I ask is I won't be fishing past the first week in July as we are expecting our second child then, but up to that date I want to fish for Carp in the river. But I really don't want to spend the money for a license if I can fish all year.

Do you even need a license to fish for rough fish?

Do you have License now? If you do that license is now good until May 1st 2009..... anything after that date you'll need a New License or you'll be subject to a really steep fine if caught fishing without a Valid Fishing License.

Not worth it!

licenses are good for 14 months, aren't they? so they shouldn't all expire on may 1st right? it depends on what time of the year you bought it I assume.

Unless I'm totally confused about how licensing works in MN

2008 angling licenses are not valid after 4/30/2009, regardless of when you bought them.

The only time I ever got a ticket from a CO was when I was about 19, I was at the Coon Rapids dam fishing for carp. I was sure I would not need a license for "rough fish" but I got a 70$ ticket! I took it to court (one of the reasons I had no license was because I was broke. I thought carp fishing was a cheap date) and ended up having to only pay 35$, but still, I should have known better. I have had a MN license and trout stamp every year since then (and WI too for most seasons), and I usually get mine as early as I can.
