      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 will be there. The prizes are spread out from biggest ($2500 cash) to the 100th biggest ($1000 cash). If you fish and think you can catch one in the top 100 then your $30 is worth it. I just bought my ticket at the BOBBER SHOP in Mankato. I thought I heard of a 3 day guided trip to Rainy Lake for 2, fish traps, augers, vexilars, etc. Very nice prizes. I am excited. Fish that weigh the same are going to be placed based on time of entry getting the higher place. One prize per entry, one hole per ticket. If you catch a 15 ounce fish and then 20 mins later catch a 1.5 lb fish and you weight that fish, then that will take your position and the smaller fish will be dumped. Fun with the places always changing. You CAN NOT fish inside any sort of shelter. All fishermen have to fish outside on the ice. All buckets, equipment, etc will be inspected before entry to the designated area. All holes will be pre drilled. You cant enter the area with out a ticket. There will be 100+ MSU athletes on the ice monitoring the event. I also saw that lie detector tests may have to be taken if there is any suspition to cheating. With over 100 athletes monitoring and other people all over the ice, every fish actually caught will not go un noticed, every one around the angler catching a fish will notice. If you plan on trying to cheat your tournament is at Hiniker pond. Have fun I will.

Also there will be food and drink served on the ice!!!

Im heading to brainerd fri. for the extravaganza sat., looking forward to both days on the ice.

How did you all do? It was a spectacular day to be on the ice.

The tourny was alot of fun. For those of you the wern't there. Their was only 96 fish caught. Most of the fish were caught right away within the first 45 min. A 1.36lb bass took home the big money. As for my, Tried about everything. Marked 2 fish all day. My one and only .26 lb sunnie caught at 2:54, was good enough for 76th.

Great event and a big Congrates to MSU Atletics and all the sponsers involved. Things really seemed to run smooth. Looking forward to it again in the future.

I was on the lake Sunday, but not part of the contest. Is it just me or has Washington really slowed down this year? We did ok on sunnies early ice, and especially in past years. Now it seems like they are harder to come by. Whats the deal?

Why were there prizes left over from the Big Bobber Ice fishing tourney? Someone that did not participate gave me a couple hundred dollar gift cards, that he said were "left over" from the contest. I would have figured that everything donated would have been given away to participants.
