      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 .

It was sure a fun way to pass the summer, and gave me an excuse to go fishing (like I needed one) that Walleye Char actually believed.

Oh by the way, I'll be available for autographs and pictures after weigh-in. I just hope you all don't mind me asking you for both.

It has been a blast being league director of the first season for the Lake of the Woods Walleye League. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that has taken part in the inaugural season. We fought bad weather and high winds in the first part of the season but the second half and the Championship Event was very nice.

The Championship was held on Saturday in beautiful weather. The fishing, however, was a bit challenging…. Again!! When the boaters returned after 4 hours to the dock for the weigh-in they were all just shaking their heads. The spots that earlier had held fish during prefishing were coming up blank, they were in shock. Three teams did not bring in any fish to the scales and one team that did have a nice start on a big basket had boat trouble and had to be towed in, missing the weigh-in.

The winners of the Championship were Adam Harder and Nate Olafson who earned a check for $204.90. Coming in second were Walleye Jon Berns and Mike Hugg who claimed a check of $170.50. In third place were Rick Thompson and Tracy Wahl who earned a check of $136.60.

Also awarded on Saturday were the awards for the top three regular season teams. Coming in first in the regular season were Walleye Jon Berns and Hike Hugg who earned $121.50 for their top finish. In second place were Old Guide Pat Fischer and Ken Parnham who claimed a check for $85.05. In third place were Nate Olafson and Adam Harder earned $36.45.

In total $926 in cash was awarded on Saturday as well as a $50 gift card donated by Streiff Sporting Goods, a $50 Streiff gift card donated by Gary Olson, a drift sock donated by Riverside Bait & Tackle, 2 fillet knives and 2 floating pliers donated by the Marvin Home Center.

It has been a lot of fun this summer, thanks again to everyone that participated.

Cary O.

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4

      Any ice starting to form again?

      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful

      Yesterday Finn and I went hunting for ducks and I should have had 4 mallards and pair of woodies.i hit one woodie and it hit the water as Finn went to get it jumped up and flew away. Next weekend I will try again.

      Second week of December is looking good for southern Minnesota, if the current long range forecasts are close to accurate. Maybe even the first week of the month with a little luck.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      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!
