      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 .

I fished it, and I know a couple other FMers fished it. What a great time. The town treated us so well that I felt guilty. That was my first trip to IF, and I cannot wait to go back. Thanks, International Falls.

HI RAY,

I'M GLAD YOU HAD FUN!!! I DIDN'T HEAR ALOT OF COMPLAINTS, BUT DID SEE SOME PLACES WHERE WE CAN IMPROVE. I WAS THE ANGLER SERVICE CORDINATOR & DID THE RULES MEETING, THE WAY WE HANDLE OUR REGISTRATIONS WILL IMPROVE, AND WE WON'T HAVE THE PROBLEM WITH HAVING MORE ODD TEAMS THEN EVEN & VICE-VERSA. RUNNING A TOURNEY OF THIS MAGNITUDE TAKES ALOT OF HARD WORK & DEDICATION, THIS IS HONESTLY THE FIRST TIME IN 26 YEARS I HAVE WENT 1 WEEK WITHOUT FISHING., BUT I THINK THE TOURNEY WAS PRETTY WELL RUN, I SLEPT A TOTAL OF 10 HOURS IN 3 NIGHTS, SO ITS EXHAUSTING....BUT FUN!!!

THANKS, DAVE

(FISHMEISTER)

Hey Fishmeister. Great job by you, Doc Potter, and all of the tourney committee and volunteers. You had every detail covered. The IFBC, along with the Fort Frances tourney are hands down the most exciting events we fish each year. Congrats on pulling off a great event once again. The crowd at the final weigh-in was awesome. By the way, we headed home after the awards, but not before stopping at your place for dinner. Thanks for the coupons!

Also, to all I. Falls/Rainy Lake and River residents: thanks for your hospitality during the tournament. We appreciate the opportunity to "play our game" on Rainy Lake and Rainy River. We not only enjoy the water but the city and the people who live there. See you next year - although I might have to make a trip to the river this fall! I'll be sure to stop in for a sandwich!

HI JDP.,

TRY GOING TO www.ifallsdailyjournal.com THEN GO TO THE MONDAYS EDITION-AUGUST 27, AND YOU WILL FIND THE STORIES. ONE THAT WON'T BE IN THERE, AS I WAS GETTING READY TO CALL OFF THE TEAMS NUMBERS FOR THE SENDOFF AT THE RIVER LANDING, A BEAVER WALKED UP THE RAMP, WALKED UP THE SHOREWOOD ACCESS ENTRANCE... I SAID OVER THE P.A. SYSTEM...ONLY IN I. FALLS CAN YOU GET THAT KINDA OF A GREETER., AND ALSO WHEN JOHN & CHAD HELD UP THEIR FISH DURING THE WEIGH IN, THE FIRST BASS WAS A MASSIVE LARGE MOUTH BASS(WHICH IS LEGAL)...ONLY CATCH, IT WAS MADE OF SOFT RUBBER, THEY PULLED IT OUT OF THE LIVE WELL, SO IT WAS DRIPPING, AND HAD BATTERIES IN IT MAKING THE TAIL MOVE...JOHN WAS STARING AT DALE LABELLE WHO HAD THE LEAD AND SAW HIS JAW DROP. THAT WAS JUST A FEW THINGS THAT HAPPENED. FUN TIMES. SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

I need to 2nd the comments of others on this thread. Between the excellent work of the tournament crew and the amazing support from the community, this truly is one of the best events around. Every detail is taken care of and it's a riot to show up at the stage with a rowdy and excited crowd ready to greet you!

Next year we'll try to make that largie a real one... Or maybe just some bigger smallies!

Congrats to Dale and Karl on the win!

Thanks to you all!

      Thanks snowfighter. Coming up Dec 9 weekend.my brother took some fish outta little turtle the weekend of Oct 7 th. Sounds like from your end of the lake. Seen pics, some decent pike.
    • Wanderer
      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!

      don't  give them any ideas!

       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.
    • Jim Almquist
      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?
    • leech~~
      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
