      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 .

North Star Summer Classic Final

Recommended Posts

curt quesnell

Two decent days of weather and the 10 teams in the

Summer Classic fished just about the entire lake.

Rick Thompson and Tracy Wahl of Warroad were the winners

with 2 identical days of fishing. Day one total 4 fish

for 8.95 followed on day two by 4 more fish and 8.73 pounds.

I talked to Rick before the awards ceremony and he said

they trolled and casted crankbaits into very shallow water.

Water as shallow as 2 feet produced most of their fish. (I

am scratching my head too) North Country Outdoors Radio

listeners have heard Justin Kjos talking shallow water

fishing for years. I dont know how but I am interested.

$2950 bucks for first.

2nd place Don Hecht and Ronald Galstad. A day one big

fish of 7.5 pounds and a total weight of 11.98 pounds on

Friday put this team in the lead. Saturday they came up a bit short with only 5.18 pounds dropped a spot.

Third was Travis Carlson of Larimore ND and Todd Prickett of Thief River Falls (Travis C and Lip Ripper on FM) 7.84

on Friday and 7.96 Saturday.

4th Mike Lindholm of TRF and Curt Quesnell of Newfolden.

(Americas team) 6.48 Friday 7.91 Saturday

5th Jerry Anderson-Baudette and Mike Anderson of Roseau

6th Chris Atwater-Nisswa and Scott Whipp-Ham Lake.

7th Mark Sindelir-Baudette and Lorne Jonassen-Rainy River.

8th Tom Schuster and Don Schuster of Baudette

9th Michael Axen and Tom Peloquin (Spring Classic winners)

of Blaine

10th Brett Whitlock-Roseau and Rob Dorry-Warroad

$200 Big Fish Pot winner day one Don Hecht and Ronald


$200 Big Fish Pot winner the second day was Curt Quesnell

and Mike Lindholm

$500 doller for Todd Prickett and Travis Carson for being

the highest place team in a Lund Boat.

Nice event, great fishing and with a few more teams BIG

money. The Fall Classic is the first weekend in October.

This is the 10th Fall Classic with a cap at 75 teams and

10 thousand dollars prize (with full field).

If you didnt fish this event over the weekend (and most of

you didnt) you missed alot of fun. See you next time.

I agree we need more teams. very well run events and alot of fun. id have to say it was the best 5 days of fishing ive had in a long time. can never get tired of reeling in 10-15 fish between 22-26 inches every day. caught a couple over the slot before the tourney but just couldn't get one in the tourney go figure.

      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.
