      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 .

Recommended Posts

walleyeking#8

For anyone who hasn't fished this and for all those who have, we will once again have the annual tournament on diamond lake in August. Scheduled date is August 25th with a start time of 7:00a.m. For anyone who is interested, this is a two person team tournament with a $25 per team entry fee. 100% payout. Fishing times are 7:00a.m-2:00p.m. A maximum of 15 teams will be allowed to fish in this tournament. First 15 teams to sign up will be entered. Last year we had a great turnout and I am hoping for a repeat this year. For more info or questions about this tournament, send me an email at monbuck_8@hotmail.com or monbuck8@yahoo.com. Entry forms can be mailed to you or sent by email. Deadline for signing up is August 19th. Hope to see some new faces and the regular ones out there again this year.

sparce,not sure what your asking. The tournament is based on a point system just as our walleye league has been for years now. Each team is allowed 6 fish to measure with a minimum of 14" required to measure. Each fish is measured at the end of the tournament and points are tallied, the team with the most points is the winner and so on.

If you are asking how many fish are brought in at the end of the tournament, last year the top team brought in 5 fish to be measured and the second place team had 6 and there were two other teams with just one fish.

If that hasn't answered your question, let me know in more detail what you are asking.

If you are asking about weights for weigh in the first year was four fish for ~18lbs, and Chad I do believe that we brought in 6 last year as well for ~16lbs, correct me if I am wrong. As he said we do his point system to determine the winner but these were agreed upon weights. We have only been allowing people to sign up a week prior, unless Chad says otherwise this year. We decided this to prevent people from jumping in if they are on fish or backing out if they are not. It creates a more level playing field, especially for those who do not have a chance to prefish readliy prior to. This is something that has bugged me with other tournaments I have done I guess. If you are confident enough then give it a shot, it will be fun nontheless. For me, it will be the first time even seeing the lake this year because I have lived in NE for the summer, similar to last year. I hope to see you there. Hopefully the bite keeps all the boats busy. End time has been 2pm

Is anyone else that has participated the last couple years on the forum here?

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.
