      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 .

Has anyone heard if the results are going to be posted anywhere after today's fishing?<BR>I'm sure most of the boats are in the river today....it might be a little choppy on the lake and in 4 mile bay with this breeze we have going.

I would be interested in the results of the tournament too. I am coming up next week and want to know how they are biting. I don't need to know your secret hot spots, just general common knowledge that was shared at the tournament. <BR> thanks, Rich from Iowa

Just got back from the Northstar Classic! What a blast! And I am not just talking the wind!!!! The winds were over 40 mph reportedly on Friday, it was so windy in 4 mile bay that they ended up taking off from the Wheelers public access instead of the Wigwam.<BR>Here are the 16 teams that placed in the money.<BR>1.Tim Arnold/Al Arnold 35.94lbs<BR>2. Curtis Brewer/ Stan Brewer 34.01lbs<BR>3. Brian Ney/Dan Stier 32.44lbs<BR>4. Mike Vacura/Mike Jordet 29.52lbs<BR>5. Steve Alverson/Randy Peters 28.82lbs<BR>6. Kent Christianson/Harv Lueck 28.51lbs<BR>7. Jerret Hoschied/John Hoschied 27.50<BR>8. Brian Donner/Tony Havenkamp 27.25lbs<BR>9. Rod Thompson/Rand Lucek 26.58lbs<BR>10.Tom Stay/Steve Mollberg 26.36lbs<BR>11.Rick Thompson/Brian Erickson 25.36lbs<BR>12.Bill Ayres/Harvey Cochrane 24.67lbs<BR>13.Dave Baker/Les Erickson 24.25lbs<BR>14.Greg Jones/Jerry Atherton 23.93lbs<BR>15.Cory Frantzick/Mike Briggs 21.76lbs<BR>16.Bill Stay/Doug Bade 20.75lbs<P>This is an INCREDIBLE fishery! We caught an easy 60-70 walleyes a day! Just bums me out that we did so poorly on Friday we only brought in one fish, LOTS and LOTS of 14-14.5 inch walleyes!! But only one over 15 inches that day! Day two we made up for it with over 19 lbs and ove over 9lbs. From what I heard most of the bigger fish were caught further up the Rainy river. <BR>On a side note, the Sturgeon in this river are unbelievable! We caught one that was over 60" that jumped completely out of the water two different times, it was like fight ing a sail fish!<P>Wish I could make it up there again.<P>Cory Frantzick

Hi Jerry. Welcome aboard.... I read your report in the Region every week, when it's there. In fact that's the main readon I have it sent to Plymouth and Florida, after I'm done ice fishing. It keeps me informed and linked to the "Woods". Keep up the good work...Kaz

      A return client for a couple years brought fish grips with him... After watching him mangle a couple fish I asked him not to bring them anymore. Big fish need more care when landing in my experience. I hand land most muskies. This helps with not bringing a green (not ready) fish into the boat to hurt itself and the boat. With musky fishing growing in popularity I'm noticing a lot more fish with net scars from green fish. For a young musky angler learn correct technique early. The scars after a 4 fish day are a badge of honor. One of the best gifts I've received for my musky gear is a good pair of wire cutters. I use them to cut hooks in an emergency or out of a poorly hooked fish. Or if you can find it...a jar of musky slime cologne, my wife loves it. Ha! Good luck

      I fished shakopee lake in onamia on monday it had ten inches of good ice. Lots of air bubbles but seemed solid. I would guess most lakes in the area have enough to at least walk on but u can never trust ice so be carfull bring spud bar and ice picks and a friend just in case

      Thanks for the shout out Moose.  I have plans to go out this weekend but to another lake.  I’ll ask if the other party wants to stick to those plans or head east instead.
    • Wanderer
      Yep, that’s what I’ve heard.  I’ve used loose powder quite a bit before.  My first ML was Hawken kit gun in 50 cal.  True black powder in an actual powder horn.  Patch and ball.   The only thing I didn’t like about ML season back then is I couldn’t wear the traditional clothes too!
