      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 .

Walleyes R Us kid tourney

Recommended Posts

Dahitman44

I don't know if that is what it was called, but it was fun. Bought my twin 7-year olds and they had a good time. We caught 8 sunnines in 3hrs -- They got bored but that was ok. -- and we got off the lake a little early.

Each kid won a door prize a bag full of fishing tackle. My twins won a fishing pole for last place in the weigh in -- just 1 pound each -- and they were so excited and proud. One of them also won a tackle box.

The tourney was on Middle C and I just wanted to thank EVERYONE that made that possible. What a great bunch of people to do that for the kids. It was our first time going and we will be back. They had tons of free water and pop and a snack for the kids and parents. What a great bunch of people.

Thanks again to everyone that made that possible.

I would like to join that Walleye club someday -- need to wait till T-ball is done in a year or two -- I understand they fish on Wednesday Night (T-ball night).

Does anyone know anything about that group?

Hey hitman, glad the boys had a good time. Hopefully you can make it again next year. Its a wonderful thing for the little fisherman in the area. We had an excellent turnout this year. The Kids tournament is put on by Walleyes-R-Us fishing league with most of the credit going to John and Darla Dockter. They do an excellent job in getting donations so each kid gets prizes.

The regular league has been around for many years and has outings generally in Becker and Ottertail counties. We do have one this year on July 21 at Devils Lake. We usually have 5-6 Wednesday evenings (6-9 pm) and 5-6 Saturday mornings (8-12) per year. Different lake each week. $10.00 per person per outing with around 10 - 20 boats each week. Its nice because you can fish only one outing or all of them. You can fish with you kids one week(we also have a kids division), and with your buddy the next week, and by yourself the next week. Very flexible. Its a great way to learn new lakes. Many of the areas elite walleye fisherman have used our league to hone their skills. Plus you will meet some of the nicest guys in the area. Our next outing is this Sat. on Ottertail.

Sent me an e-mail and I will get you all the info on the league. I can also get you a standings sheet from the kids tournament last week.

Later

Brewer

Brewer --

Thanks for the response. I was in Devils Lake for a couple of days and I just got back. I would like to put something in the paper -- the pic people took of all of the kids and the results -- can I get them.

What is your e-mail?

How can I get a hold of the Dockters?

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!

      There's preliminary testing then if flagged it gets shipped to a lab I believe in CO to verify the results.

      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and sleds...no side by sides yet.

      I'll be ok, as long as I got my daily HSO therapy!

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      if it ever comes down to those 2 choices for you, do the eye thing. Cant fish with you if yer dead.

      Looks like Big Bay is still open, so I don't think I'll be ice fishing Thanksgiving Day weekend.  I'm guessing the Big Bay will freeze this Sunday or Tuesday.  Lake should be walkable by December 2 when I plan to go up.

      Why do you think I come here everyday?  It's better then poking your eye with a sharp stick or slitting your wrists!

      I don't see any serious cold snaps in the next 2 weeks so its likely open water will still be in play for those brave enough to try it.
