      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 have a question about the tournament results. I noticed on the results page that Trevor Birdsall, who caught the 100th place fish and won the Glastron boat, is also listed as having the 43rd largest fish, a .80 rock bass. According to the rule #4:

"4. Each person will be allowed to fish one hole per ticket, two holes maximum. You may register as many fish as you want, but only the heaviest fish per contestant will qualify for a competition prize. No contestant will be eligible for more than one competition prize. There is no age requirement on tournament participation."

A person is not eligible to win twice. Unless by incredible coincidence there are two Trevor Birdsalls living in the little town of Princeton, and if I'm interpreting the rules of the contest correctly, shouldn't he be ineligible to win the boat? If anyone can clarify I would appreciate it.

Could be a Trevor Jr.,fishing with dad? I don't know. All I know is my name isn't on that list after fishing the contest yesterday.I think I know this guy,or at least I used to know his dad.If it is a mistake/oversight I am pretty sure the Jaycees will take care of it.

Nope, his dad is Rick from Elk River. (Who apparently finished #35 from the looks of the results.)

And the Star Tribune today says he is 26 years old, so if it's his own son he would be likely be pretty young.

Yep,I kinda thought it was the same guy.I won't say how, but I knew his dad,Rick,from years ago.I couldn't remember how old Trevor was.I haven't talked to them for a very long time.Well, the Jaycees better investigate this situation to make it right.

I did not fish because of a sinus infection but my next door neighbor said he was fishing pretty close to the guys who finished 1 and 2... He said they were in pretty deep water... around 60 ft... Does not surprise me given the time of the day...

I was really surprised at the number of walleyes caught this year.... The weather conditions could not have been much better...Several days of stable weather with warming..light winds and temp in the low 20's... Pretty nice... If it would have been the previous weekend it would have been absolutely terrible....

I wonder what the count is on the number of entries? My guess is over 12,000.... Great event!!!!

Way to go Jaycees!!!!

I'm hearing from a secondry source, but I heard that they didn't quite make it to 10,000. I'm sure the Dispatch will mention the total Monday.

if trevor had bought 2 tickets he would be able to claim 2 prizes, right? otherwise it is like you said 1 prize per ticket from what I understand.

I don't know. The rules say one prize per contestant, not one prize per ticket. If anyone has any more information about this, I would like to hear it.

It's my understaning that it's 1 prize per contestant and that each ticket is a contestant since that is how they would get their total number of contestants for contest since I'm sure they don't actually go around and count heads. So if he had 2 tickets he should be able to enter 2 fish since he would be 2 contestants.

with over 20,000 holes that we drilled, only one hole pulled a 5lb walleye from it.

and I think I drilled that hole. So you better thank me. Joking I have no clue what holes I drilled. To many to keep track of.

I think the lack of fish being caught has more to do with the noise above the ice than anything.

That said... still a very fun time.

The Jaycees are looking into the double dipper. Even if he did buy 2 tickets, the rules state only 1 prize per contestant (not ticket) And he DID have 2 tickets.

I can't see any easy "fix" to this...The Jaycees judges obviously screwed up. What can be done if the results are wrong, but announced and posted as "official" as the website sugggests? It's going to be interesting for sure. They better clarify next year or limit every person to one ticket, which would reduce the $$$ made, so that probably won't happen either.

Do they call every winner from 100-150 (and the poor person at 151st) and have them back in Brainerd to adjust the prizes? That seems unlikely as well.

I fished the tournament 3 times, awhile back and never caught a fish...how often have people caught multiple fish, after buying two tickets, if that is true like jpz says?

I saw a guy with 1 ticket (i would presume) He caught 4 fish out of his one hole. His 3 buddies around him all also had fish.

The other thing I find interesting is that after looking at the winners list it appears that the double dipper has 2 relatives who also won prizes.......I guess these guys had some hot holes.

I wasn't ever that lucky! I hope to make it back up there again in the next couple of years...how is the pre-contest party? Is it worth coming up early, to stay and have fun?

I'm gotten into a perch hole.......of course that was the year EVERYONE was in a perch hole. Yeah, I guess the guy gets 2 and we move on.

So, jpz, it sounds like some people, including you, have caught multiple fish, great job! I must not be lucky enough or I don't try hard enough or try too hard...I'm sure there are some people have fished almost every year without winning a prize...if there are thousands of people and 100-150 prizes per year, that would mean a bunch are in my situation!

I wonder if the Jaycees will comment or just let it go? I'd hate to be on that board, trying to figure out what can/will/should happen.

Good luck fishing!

      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).

      That the best sounding plan yet!! same to you and your party.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.
    • eyeguy 54
      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.
    • Wanderer
      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!  
    • DLD24
      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.
