      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 .

Anyone know of upcoming tournaments... I'd like to get into a few.

I've fished the Devils Lake Tournament one time, but other than that - never really fished tournaments.

If you could post tournaments and dates, that would be excellent... Also, let me know if there are any tournaments that allow portable houses.

THANKS

There are a bunch:

1.Brainerd Jaycees Ice fishing extravaganza slated for Jan 26

2.8th annual "challenge" Lake L'Homme Dieu in Alexandria on February 9.

3.Forest Lake Ice Fishing contest February 16

Well not a bunch, but enough to keep you busy. Looks like all have a lot of good prizes. The brainerd one looks to be the best. giving away a new truck and boat and a lot of cash prizes. Lastly, these look to be house free, so dress warm.

I'll have to check my schedule and see if any of these match up with my days off. good luck. the Perch

Actually I think it's the Glyndon Rod and Gun Club that sponsers this one. Not that it really matters I guess.

Are you from Glyndon Ludzy??

Nope not from Glyndon, I live in Fargo.

I have a buddy who lives there. He turned me on to this tournament 3 years ago. I didnt make it out this year. Heard the big walleye was about 10.5 lbs. this year. Good Job to that guy!

There is a tournament on Lida this saturday (09Feb08) that is being put on by the local Jaycees. As far as I know, it is ten dollars to enter and starts at one o'clock. Thought someone out there may want to know.

Are you sure that is the correct date? I am interested if so. I went to look for more information about it and I found a website that said it was on January 27th? The link to where I found that info was: [Note from admin: Please read forum policy before posting again. Thank you.]

I'm pretty sure he's correct on the date. I've heard it advertised on the radio (KRCQ 102.3 FM out of DL) it is being put on by the Pelican Rapids Area JC's.

Will the holes be predrilled, can you fish anywhere, or do you have to drill them in a given area? Do you have to fish on the ice... geeze sounds like I am planning to cheat... nope. Hate fishing on the ice when its cold and I have a few spots that I would like to fish if I entered grin.gif What are the prizes (first few is sufficient)?

Thanks ALOT!

I can't answer all of your questions, but as far as for the one about prizes goes.... The radio ad says that there is over $1100.00 in prizes with an aqua view camera being given away.

It doesn't sound like they have the prizes like the one last weekend in PR had, but may be fun to go to. Although -6 for a high on Saturday may keep me away.

Does that mean would be sitting on the ice? If that is the case it would have to be much warmer than -6! I am a fair weather tourney man. eek.gif

Not sure, but most ice tournaments don't allow portables. Although, under those circumstances, I would have to think that they would almost have to, or not have anybody show up.

From what I was told tonight, they are allowing portables this year. I am not sure how reliable this information is but thats what I was told. I can't imagine them saying no since it is supposed to be so cold with such high wind.

Just read on the Fargo Forum web site that the Pelican Rapids JC's tournament scheduled for tomorrow has been re-scheduled until next Saturday the 16th. A look at the extended forcast shows highs near 30 next Saturday, so that is a good decision to switch it in my book.

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.
    • ANYFISH2
      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?
    • ANYFISH2
      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.
