      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 .

Shack Licenses?

Recommended Posts

What is the rule for shack licenses in MN? I am from WI and am clueless as to the laws. When do you need a license and when don't you. You wouldn't need one for a portable being out all night would you?

You only need a shelter license if you leave it unattended overnight. If you are in it all night you will not need a shelter license. You will need your full name and address or your Drivers license number or MN DNR # that is on your fishing license. Not sure how the DNR # works for non-residents though.

well they just changed it here 2 times in 2 years so most here are suffering the same as you.

I beleive it is that you do not need a license on a fish house if you do not leave it unattended overnight. You still need to have you MN DNR fishing license number or name address or drivers license number on it to identify it.

Oops looks like jerkbait posted while I was typing.

This is how it is written in the regs.

Shelters

The following regulations apply to fish houses, dark houses, and

portable shelters used on all Minnesota waters, unless otherwise noted

elsewhere in this booklet.

• All shelters, which include dark houses, fish houses, and portable

shelters, placed on the ice of Minnesota waters must have either the

(

1)complete name and address, (2)driver’s license number, or (3)the

nine-digit Minnesota DNR number on the license of the owner plainly

and legibly displayed on the outside in letters, and figures at least 2

inches in height. Dark houses, fish houses, and portable shelters placed

on the ice for shelter while fishing do not need new

a license unless

the house will be left unattended overnight.

new Note: The Dept. of Public Safety - DVS now requires trailers

used to haul fish houses or dark houses and enclosed trailers or recreational

trailers used for fishing must be registered. See your local Deputy

Registrar for trailer registration.
