      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 .

Will they be selling tickets the day of the tourney on the ice? I visited the website, but it's not real clear on that. I assume you'd be able to, it just states that after Feb. 17th 11:59 pm the tickets will be $40 per person, instead of $30 but I couldnt find anything about getting the tickets the day of the tourney? Thanks in Advance!

So did anyone make it out to the contest today? It was an awesome day to be on the lake, no wind and clear skies. Alot of big perch were caught considering 75th place was a .8something perch. I ended up with 28 with a .97 perch and got a DU collectible decoy. I saw alot of people just keeping fish because there were so many big ones being caught.

Didn't catch a thing but had a blast....

First, I won two tickets on the radio, so I took my 15 year old for his birthday.

We bought $20 worth of raffle tickets (5 chances out of at least 10,000 tickets) and I'll be darned if he didn't win two prizes (what are the odds of that?!!?!?!)

He won a 12 guage auto and also a 24 hour fish house rental at McQuoid's.

Pretty awesome birthday to say the least.

One of those "awesome to be a dad" days.

Big thank you to everyone involved with the tourney and an extra thanks to Reed's Sporting goods and McQuoides for the raffle prizes.

Tim

This sounds like a nice contest. I may have to check it out next year. Where is it held out of? What structure are they set up on and is the area big enough where everyone can spread out? The info is appreciated.

The main access was in front of the Blue Goose on Garrison Bay.

Contest area was very large. I would guess 1 1/2 mile circle around the perimeter.

Cars/trucks were allowed to park out on the ice all around the perimeter, so the walk was minimal comaired to many larger events.

Holes were pre-drilled about every 15 feet, and there were PLENTY of them. Most fished the outer edges of the boundaries, so there was a ton of holes available in the middle areas.

Even if we had not won any prizes, I would recommend this event to anyone.

Again, thanks to everyone involved with this event.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
