      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 .

3 Rods Allowed In Michigan

Recommended Posts

I saw this posted somewhere else:

Michigan to allow three rods

In a major regulation change, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) announced anglers will be able to use up to three rods, effective April 1.

In the past, the limit was two rods on Michigan waters except anglers trolling for salmon in the Great Lakes could use three rods.

The Michigan DNR also reminds anglers that new fishing licenses went on sale March 1.

The licenses are good from the date of purchase through March 31, 2010. Anglers are not required to possess a 2009 fishing license until April 1, when the new season begins and new fishing regulations take effect.

In recent years, the Michigan DNR has printed two fishing guides, one specifically for trout and salmon. This year, the 2009 Michigan Fishing Guide includes all fishing regulations. It’s available statewide at license vendors.

The color-coded maps that were previously printed in the trout and salmon guide are not included this year. Color-coded trout stream maps will be available online at www.michigan.gov/dnrfishing beginning April 1. Changes to lake and stream types are noted in red in the fishing guide.

There are two other major fishing regulations changes for 2009 in Michigan:

— The daily limit of five trout and salmon in combination may now include up to five chinook or coho salmon. In the past, the limit included a maximum of three fish of one species.

— There is a two-gallon daily limit on smelt. Previously, there was no limit.

3 Lines ought to keep people busy.

I know there were alot of changes starting with the O9 fishing season. We could alway run 3 rods on lake Superior, it is real nice when 2 guys are in the boat running planner board. 3 shallow and 3 deep. Now 3 rods during ice fishing will be odd, I guess I need a bigger portable.

I actually heard about this a month or so ago, but couldn't find any proof to back up the rumors..........it'll sure make things interesting in a 12ft. boat with two guys in it grin

I am curious if anyone knows what the rational was to make this change. Really, 3 rods seems quite excessive for most fishing. Is there a fight started yet to allow 4? grin
