      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 .

Is that the tourney put on by the SW MN fishing club? I did not know it is a memorial. That's pretty cool, though.

Personally, I will not be there. I'll be driving home from the twin cities. Good luck to ya, Bill.

it's getting pretty close to full..50 boats max due to the dnr permit fee..u can send your registration fee to South West Minnesota Fishing Club/P.O. Box 4/Worthinton, MN 56187 or if you have any questions call 507-360-3973 or 507-360-8565 and leave a message..also the tourny will start at 7:30 now instead of 7:00 because of dnr regulations

Should be a good tourney! Hopefully the fish will cooperate! The Southwest Minnesota Fishing Club does a good job. This tournament is a great way to remember and honor a fellow fisherman who passed away at a young age.

Sounds like it is going to be a good turnout. I missed the Mini tournament last weekend (doesn't sound like I missed much) due to a wedding. Now missing this tournament due to work. Should be good fishing though... I have been into them in several places. I am also hearing of some monsters being caught. The old Bow and shot gun are going to have to wait another month or so! grin.gif

If I recall there were 9 boats that weighed eyes, a few hogs around the 9 pound mark hit the scale. I'm not from the area so I cant remeber the names of who won, but they did it with one fish that was 28 inches. There sure are some nice fish in that lake. Gotta give thanks to my partner for putting us in the money. I will definately be back for next years tourney and maybe a little more prepared. The club does a great job with this, one of the more relaxed and organized events Ive seen.

Here is a photo of the 27 incher that we had to release during the tournament because we already had our one fish over 20 inches which was 22in. The fish caught up on Sarah were plump and healthy. Should be a great lake this fall. [image]RyanHunt27inchWalleye.jpg[/image]

The winners of the tourney were Terry and Scott Langland from Worthington,Mn. Terry told me they had one fish that was 29" and weighed 9.25 lb. They caught it trolling. He said Travis Frazee and partner from Worthington had one fish that weighed 9lb. to take second place. They caught that one casting shoreline.

Did you get in the money with that 22" fish idratherbefishing? Too bad you didn't catch mama first. She certainly does look like a Sarah walleye though.

we came in 6th with one fish at 4.20 lbs. It is too bad we didn't catch the bigger one first but oh well, we had a good time! The SW MN Fishing Club puts on a great event and it was sure a nice way to remember the young man who passed away this summer. His family was all there at the weigh in and they presented a beautiful traveling trophy made by one of the family members to the winning team.

Well ya he did put me onto a nice fish, but he was the one that secured our spot in the weigh in so I have to give him credit for that, the Southwest Club does do a great job and I will definately be back next year, might drag the boat down for a spare though, never know when you might need a spare boat, lol

      Are they both the same age?  Equal condition?  Do you hand drag or machine pull?  Weight will matter a lot. You really have to consider how you plan to use the house.  Happiness with the houses performance is the biggest key.

      It's not thermal. How's frabill's customer service in case you break a poll or something?
    • going4it
      The only problem I had with my frabill was its weight. It was a tank to pull and tough to put in the bed of the truck.

      Anyone else think the number of people ice fishing in the last 5 years has grown greatly in our area? To me it has and to me it seems alot harder now to find a spot of your own, or spots that have been pasted down on a lake that there arnt 5 to 50 people trying to fish! Gps doesn't help the cause either, I wonder what the future of ice fishing and the fish/ crappie population is going to look like in the next 5 to 10 years. Last year kinda shocked me to by the number of people out partying out on cedar and even the sound of subs going by in cars on the ice.. like really??! Could see the look of what is wrong with people from dads and familys out with their kids. Sorry about the rant

      I found exactly the same thing today. It was a steady 5" walking to the fishing spot. 3" of ice on the spot, if that. Cracks everywhere. Water pushing out of holes I had drilled. Not good.

      Is the Frabill a thermal flip over? It sounds like a steal to me. I would go for it if you’re looking for a house that has more room. I have a Frabill 2 man thermal flip over and I really like it.
    • walros
      I love my frabill !!

      Steve, Thanks for helping me get a deal on my Otter. I was able to pick it up at Marine General on Monday. Can't believe all of the ice stakes that came with it. Bought one of the Eskimo drill adapters to install them.

      Just out on 1st Lake after work 5” solid clear ice out to 17’ of water

      Any new updates on the ice thickness.  Looking to get out on walk-able ice this weekend.  Seems like the darn winds blows 45 mph every day lately.
