      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 .

Myself and a couple buddies are thinking about setting up a small fishing league. We were thinking about picking a different Lake every week and target a certian species. It would be, for the most part, a friendly competition.

Has anyone been in one before, or do you have any suggetions, or things we need to look out for?

Thanks!!!

Thanks, Now that we know how to keep it leagal, we have to come up with some rules, and what lake to fish when, and what species to fish for. Any suggestions on keeping score, with as little stress on the fish as possible?

We want to keep it to a small group this year, and keep it fun, and not so competitive.

Thanks again

Also, note that most organized events on the water or ice need a county permit. (page 11 of the 2008 regulations)

Thanks, I will be contacting counties to make sure we don't need permit.

I even found a place were they will post our results for free on the web. They e-mailed, and said we could use there scoring system.

kasota,

I have some software for tournament keeping that I had used a only a few times that Is fully customizable to to league specifics.

It is mostly beneficial if you have a labtop available at the weigh-in site it will automaticly deduct penalties add bonus points ect. also calculates weights and positions prints reports on paper or over computer... that type of stuff!! goggle tournament keeper for specifics

let me know if it intrests you.

It was mentioned it would be good to do this league in a way to cause little or no stress to game fish. Maybe rough fish could be targeted(carp,sheephead) alond with bullheads,catfish occasionally.

Thanks,

I will try to get in contact with him, and see if we can share ideas etc.

I will you all posted on how things progress. My intentions of starting this league, is give guys a reason to get out and fish, and have a few beers. I don't want it to get really competitive, just to have fun, and be safe.

I already got a great start on scoring system, and a list of rules. I need to work on a list of lakes, and dates and times. I'm leaning towards 1 night per week, or maybe one night every other week. There will be two people per boat, and subs may be used, as long as one of the original registered two is in the boat.

If we go forward with it, we'll be looking for people that are interested in joining. I just want to keep the size of the league down, to keep it leagal for one reason, and not to create a lot of work for me, or anyone else etc.

Thanks again for all your input, it has helped me a lot.

Beer, fishing, trying new lakes and meeting new people. Sounds Great! I just got a small boat last fall, might as well put it to use, would need a partner though. Very interesting! I'd bite.

You fit the our profile perfectly........I look to do this League for fun.....Keep it to having fun.....The more I think about it, the more excited I get.

I want to warn any of you that are interested in this league, that this league is not for the expert fisherman(T.O. Katoguy, Harry, Etc) You guys know how to have fun fishing, without winning our league. This league is for the guys that have a boat, and need a reason to go, and just want to have fun.

Are you near Fox Lake (Sherburn?) My Mom has a place on that lake, so I make it down there a couple times every year.

Have not fished in the summer much since 94', It's been all ice. No expert here. Just need the excuss to get out of the house.

PDOGG. no problem. Will see how it's set-up, and which night of the week works out for all.

      I've gotten a lot of eyes this year, this being my best. Several in the 24" range and a LOT of eaters. A buddy and I took my mom out fishing and we got our limit of eater eyes in about an hour and a half. Good times!
    • Daniel Anderson
      Nice! That looks like a good time.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties
    • jj56342
      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.
