      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 .

Ticket for Park Rapids ice fishing tournament ?

Recommended Posts

Huey

Anyone know if you can buy a ticket the day of the derby or do you have to get them before hand? This would be for the big ice fishing tournament in Park Rapids on Feb 2nd.

Thanks, Huey

Huey,

I'm working in Park Rapids right now with a gal who works the tournament. She stated that you can buy tickets at the Legion up to the tournament time, this is her thought. She said they no longer sell tickets on the ice.

Hope that helps!

I talked with one of the committee members and it's a go for sure. There was plenty of ice over a week ago and the temperatures have been sub-zero since.

Good luck to anyone who tries their hand at winning a prize (I'd want the Ice Castle fish house for sure!)

I want the "Ice Castle" too, but I'll settle for the "Pick Up". Good Luck to everyone at The "PARK RAPIDS CONTEST", it sounds like it won't be the 30 plus below it was 20 plus years ago when I was last up there for the contest. I'm

looking forward to getting out on the ice again.

What exact drawing are you refering too? I thought it was always public? Then again, I've been doing it for years with my father and unless we've got a chance, we usually head home afterwards.

Three cheers to ice! I remember a couple years back when practically everything was going under water. Struggle.

Taking into consideration that this was the first post for sc103. I question the reason for the remark.

If someone has a legitimate gripe about the drawing, I will

bring it up with the committee. I just hate to see a first

and only post from someone that questions the ethics of many

people that spend hundreds of hours to keep this tournament

alive and health. This tournament is a huge shot into the

PR business community. It is estimated that the tournament

brings approximately $750,000 into this community.

It will be a beautiful weekend folks, everyone is welcome.

Please, if you are going to drink, DON'T DRIVE. The legion

provides courtesy cars to and from any location in the area!

Remember to tip the drivers, they don't get paid for their

services!

Hi, Musky,PRW, and all. Leaving this afternoon for the Rapids and the big weekend. While I spend lots of time up there, this will be my first time at the Saturday outing. Really looking forward to it. Will be bringing three others and plan to fish a couple different lakes on Friday and Sunday. Jonah, maybe I will run into you on the ice or at the Legion. We will pick our tickets up on Friday. I tried to print out the tournament rules but the color and type size make it almost impossible to read. Will someone be able to help us at the Legion on Friday?

Fishook,

The Legion is the place to go for your tickets. I believe all

tickets will be called in today, so the Legion will be the only

place selling tickets. Use the courtesy cars, they will drop

you off from the cabin to Zorbaz and anywhere in between, well

with in reason! I will be working the breakfast and from there

lake shuttle, if I get out of the breakfast in time. Hope to

see you that Saturday.

Woody

hope it all goes well, I will not be around i have a swim meet down here at school on Saturday. Good luck to all who participate in this weekends events and please be safe. I am sure the FUZZ will be out in force so please use the courtesy cars or a DD. The last thing we need is to loose a fellow sportsman. And remember FUN is the word of the weekend, don't get bent out of shape if things don't go as planned on the ice. Also don't forget they give out a four wheeler or snowmobile for the panfish category, this is the best division to have a shot at legitamitly catching something you can win with. also remember that panfish are a forage base on Fish Hook and Pike will not be far from schools of gills near the cabbage. Just something to look for as you pick your hole. Jonah

So when you buy your fishing ticket do you automatically get a raffle ticket or are those sold individually??

Your fishing ticket puts you in for the raffle.

      Hey I am planning on ice fishing on Lake Minnetonka this winter with a friend and I am using a snowmobile to get to the lake from the trails. I would enter onto the lake in Orono off the Luce line trail and end up in Stubbs bay. I was reading on other forums saying avoid the channels but it seems to be the only way to get around the lake to other bays especially since I am on a snowmobile. I was wondering if they eventually are safe enough to hold up a snowmobile in mid-late January, and if going through them faster helps possibly? I would like to fish around the Smith's bay area and the only way I can do that is going through channels. I know Lake Minnetonka can be sketchy with ice thickness and I don't want to end up through the ice, thoughts? Thanks.   Jim

      The DSL service is great since they ran the fiber down 24 a few years ago.   I was presuming that the poster didn't have that option if they were considering satellite.     AccessMN is another possibility if they are still around.

      OK I will post a report just on the offhand chance that someone else still reads these things.  Fished at Birchdale afternoon of Saturday 10/21 and morning of 10/22.  Fishing was good Saturday for keeper sized fish, nothing big but caught 29 fish in 6 hours,  mostly nice keepers 14 to 19 inches long and not too many dinks.  Sunday morning fishing was slow and then it got super windy so pulled the plug early and went home.  Jigging in shallower spots, could not troll crankbait because of debris on line.  Others had mixed success.  Shiners were around.

      10/22/17     Hunted water in central MN from a boat blind both days. Despite gusty south winds one day and temps not exactly October-like, new ducks were around that moved in during a cold, clear night with a west wind during the week. Calendar migrators from the Dakotas and southern Canada. Saw eleven species and harvested ten--typical late October mixed bag. A mixed, medium-sized decoy spread with a crosswind on a point with the sun behind us was the ticket. An Avery Quick Set blind with fast grass mats and two Lucky Duck HD spinners rounded out the set-up. Subtle mallard quacks, chuckles, and drake whistles mixed with goose clucks, pintail and wigeon whistles locked up birds nice and close--no loud contest calling. Cold weather and West and NW winds this week should get a bunch of new birds in--probably a mixed bag of species still. We saw or heard eight flocks of specklebellies migrating on Sunday. Look for a show about one of these days of hunting on my You Tube channel (Fishing and Hunting the North Country) by later in the week.  Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I pulled my boat for the winter today. Sure hated to have to do that, but have tons of stuff to do to get ready for the fall, winter stuff! Cliff

      Good day!  Keep the reports coming! We’re islanders and had to pull out a week ago. On my last day out by myself I boated a thick 28” walleye to close my season. We brought filets Home so my old fisherman, 95 year old dad could enjoy a good fry,  I still enjoy reading about the lake so keep reporting. Thanks, Dick

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).
