      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 .

My 14 yr old son and I want to start fishing some smaller bass tournaments around the local area. I'm in the process of selling my Older Lund and looking for a newer multi-species rig for next year. I'm getting back into the sport after being away from it for 6 years and need some advice. Are there fun tournaments around here, or will I get blown out of the water with everybody's 250 hp bass boat? I have no illusions about winning - but we think it would be a great way to learn more of the local lakes and get to know some area fisherman.

Any suggestions to point us in the right direction? Thanks

Not sure where you are from or how far you are willing to travel but there is one on lake zumbro just north of rochester on tuesday nights - $20 per boat, very informal apparently. I have never participated but am a regular in the Rochester forum and it is discussed often - here is a link that has description/rules/winners etc.

Zumbro Bass Tourney

Good Luck

Thanks for the info. I knew there was a league out here sometime, but I didn't know if I would get rooster-tailed to death by 19 yr olds with their dad's bass boat. I've done a few of those local tournaments when I lived in Sherburne County. A 300 acre lake and it's "On your Mark, Get Set. GO!" and a dozen Fast Strikes jumping on plane with roostertails to make the 6 second run the first point. heheh.

I'm looking foward to it. I'm still looking for the perfect multi-species rig - can't quite seem to pull the trigger.

Thanks again for all the input...

New Ulm Bass Anglers Club would be a option. Small seasonal fee with the option to join the state federation. We fish Mankato, Willmar, Alexandria areas. If interested drop me a line. elehman at newulmtel.net

Did a little more investigating this a.m seems it has good even compression so thats good, but there still a heck of a clatter and I happened to notice the the prop intermittently spin every time you heard a loud clunk so I'm guessing there's something in the lower unit bad, and when I pulled the drain plug I got a lot of metal shavings.

None the less not a good situation. confused.gif

The boat goes in on Thursday a.m likley won't have it back for the weekend or U.B for that matter. On the worse note it's all I can think about and my I can't rest till I know what the out come will be.

Taking it to LaCannes? If so, and it is lower unit, and a yammi..be prepared for at least a week. When mine went in, they said they had to ship it out to somewhere to fix the LU, and they do this only on Mondays. For being a 5star dealer, or whatever Yammi calls them....what a joke.

I'll be out fishing a few nights this week, and Sunday and Monday if you want to go, let me know. I have an open seat for you.

Mine was due to the lower unit - skag, prop, and whatever that thing is called that when you have a SS prop, it bends and breaks.

In my experience with them after the sale and spending close to 28k this spring....I will not be buying/upgrading from them, and I will take my business else ware for service.

      I fished shakopee lake in onamia on monday it had ten inches of good ice. Lots of air bubbles but seemed solid. I would guess most lakes in the area have enough to at least walk on but u can never trust ice so be carfull bring spud bar and ice picks and a friend just in case

      Thanks for the shout out Moose.  I have plans to go out this weekend but to another lake.  I’ll ask if the other party wants to stick to those plans or head east instead.
    • Wanderer
      Yep, that’s what I’ve heard.  I’ve used loose powder quite a bit before.  My first ML was Hawken kit gun in 50 cal.  True black powder in an actual powder horn.  Patch and ball.   The only thing I didn’t like about ML season back then is I couldn’t wear the traditional clothes too!

      Lots of fresh ice out there. With the snow we have gotten the last few days you won’t be able to see the difference between the older and newer ice so don’t forget to check. There were open water spots on most lakes 2 days ago that are now covered. CHECK for your self.  Also lots of trash already on a lake I was on, slobs, throw it in your own car if you don’t mind looking at it.

      If he is going to fish them from a kayak I would suggest getting him a boga grip that way he can get it out of the water

      Thanks for arranging this MM.  Wish I could make it.  I'm sure it'll be a great time!

      I heard of a ranger/ice castle out from the Pelican access last weekend.  Any truth to that?  Some people have no fear.

      You will like the Blackhorn powder as long as you are used to using loose powder and not pellets. It burns much cleaner making reloads much easier. I clean my muzzleloader the same way as all my other guns now. Just remember that you don't have to use as many grains of powder with the 209. The max recommended is 120 grains. I shot 100 grains of pyrodex but dropped to 90 with the 209.
