      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 .

Beaver Dam ?

Recommended Posts

If you have a beaver dam on a creek that runs through your property, do you have to let them take it out ? It was only flooding my land and I understand the navigable water part, although this creek is not navigable. It currently has less than a foot of water until the Spring thaw. I'm not even certain who took it out, DNR or county people ? I figured they had the right so I never questioned it, but it took a lot of waterfowl habitat with it down the drain.

if it was on your property and you didnt want it to be taken out i would first try to find who did it. and if you wanted back in just rent a skidloader or something and make you own dam. if it was all my property and someone come in and did something like that that i didnt want them to do i wouldnt be too happy. makes it all the better reason to make your own dam

Right on Tyler. How would the dnr respond to me plugging it up with a skidloader ?

im not sure, they kinda think they can do whatever they want though(atleast around here). if you want a dam there that is on your property i would say plug it back up. its your property.

I understand that, but with this creek having a name and it flowing through other properties, I just thought there was a stipulation on it because it is a named creek and if enough water allowed couldn't anyone with access paddle or canoe it?

I'd give the local DNR office a call, and see what they know about it. Maybe it was something to do with water rights further downstream??? Who knows.

I'd have to guess they know something about it. If not, they'll probably tell you to plug it back up

oh ok i thought this whole stream was on your property. i guess i miss understood you. yea i agree with lovebigbluegills, if the dnr did it they should have a reason but if someone else did it i would personally plug it back up.

Be very careful about working in ANY water with a skid loader - the DNR can and will fine you if you do not have the proper permits to do work on a streambed.

Might be the dam was removed because of potential flooding of a roadway. Or if the roadbed in is containing the water on your property the dam has to go. Ask the county and DNR.

    • Feel free to explain how you keep food out of the danger zone while using sous vide when you are cooking at temperatures in the danger zone for many hours.   
    • I have a feeling PIYA is an acronym. Maybe it stands for Pain In Your A@@.
    • Yes and it sucks. Putting a pro view in Lp mode in shallow water means you are going to have a narrower cone. (Because LP mode is low power which is a 50% cut in power which less power equals narrower cone on a pro view)  To get a wide cone angle and sharp returns in shallow water is impossible with a pro view. To get a narrow cone in deep water if you need the gain up it is impoosible with a pro view. basicly the pro view cant do what a person wants. Which is a wide beam low gain/lp mode in shallow water and a narrow cone higher gain in deep water.
