      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 .

Yes the weigh station is still by the highway 22 bridge. The only thing that has changed this year is minimum lenghts for walleye, bass & northern. Prior to this year there was minimum weights for all species, which resulted in a lot of under weight fish being brought in. Hope to see everyone at the contest. There is a nice get together afterwards where the prizes are given out and the drawings are held.ScottS

June 9th is Right around the corner, and that means one thing. The HORSESHOE CHAIN OF LAKES FISHING CONTEST. It is a blast and I hope to see everyone out there. I will be doing the Tournament Patrol again this year, so if you see a Green Lund boat with Tournament Patrol signs on it wave me down and say Hi. If you are not familiar with the event, it is a Multi-Species event with payouts in all categories: Northern, Bass, Walleye, Sunnies, Crappies and Catfish. Buttons are avaiable at most of the local bait shops as well as most of the businesses in Richmond. If you want more details you can email me or post them here.ScottS

I just heard that button sales have been pretty good, with over half being sold before May 15th. That is well ahead of other years, so if you are planning on waiting until Friday to get your button, you may be out of luck. Sounds like the weather is going to be real nice. See ya on the water.ScottS

Your best bet to get a button will be Southside Truckstop in Richmond or any of the local bars. There are several bars on Main Street in Richmond, but you will have to get them in Richmond. I am not sure what time they close the button sales but if you are going to be late, I would call ahead and make sure someone saves one for you. With the nice weather this weekend, they will sell out fast. I had 9 calls yesterday for buttons, so I know they won't last long. See ya on the water. ScottS

Most of the businesses in Richmond have a copy of the results. I also have a copy but with all the categories I decided not to list them on the site. If you have any specific categories or would like the winning weights I would be glad to post them, just let me know if there is interest. The overall size of the fish was excellent this year and there were 380 participants.ScottS

Well I decided to post the results anyway: I will post the top weights for each category for now:
Northern 11.50
Walleye 7.26
Bass 4.04
Sunfish 7.16 (10 Fish)
Crappie 3.38 (5 Fish)
Catfish 5.92

If you are looking for a specific winner or category let me know, I can post the whole list if I have time.ScottS

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      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.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      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.
