      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 .

My brother Jason and I are fishing the Mercury Classic this year. Jason has fished it the last two, doing pretty well both times.

Well, my brother Jason and I fished the "Classic" again this year....<P>We did pretty good on day one. We brought in six fish which weighed 15.64 lbs, sitting in 31st place after day one (out of 200 boats). We were excited to get out Sunday and improve upon our position, but things didn't turn out so well for us. We struggled in the morning and missed out on the all-important morning bite. We didn't have a fish in the boat until about 11:00 A.M. We worked hard, catching a few fish in the bright afternoon sun, but it was too late. We had to weigh-in at 3:30 and ended up weighing in a measly 6.90lbs on day two. We ended up with a total of 22.44 lbs. I haven't seen the final results yet, but I think we finshed about 40th place...<P>Anyway, it was a great time and I look forward to doing it again next year.<P>

Jester-<BR>In my opinion you did pretty well. I did the classic last year and my partner and I struggled for fish...period. I saw several boats come in with no fish last year. I wanted to do it this year, but my tourney partner couldn't make it. <BR>I did manage to fish Leech on Sat. of the classic and later went to see some anglers come in to weigh in and one team (that I saw) brought in 22 or 23 lbs on Sat. alone! Wow. Better luck next year, maybe for both of us.

CD-<P>I think I know the team to which you refer. I believe his last name is Christenson and is a member of the Leech Lake guide coalition. He caught another monster stringer this year on Sunday, catching about 22lbs while alot of teams were struggling in the "bluebird" conditions.<P>Where we screwed up was Sunday morning. While waiting for our start time, we planned to go to a spot where we got alot of fish Saturday. However, once we motored to the main lake it was apparent that the wind had changed, coming out of the East. We were fishing a little "nub" off the West side of a sunken island. The East wind ensured that our spot was not getting any wind, but we stubbornly fished it anyway. We payed the price by wasting the morning hours on a spot that didn't have many fish.<P>Oh well, hindsight is 20-20, and I hope to learn from this and do better next year!<p>[This message has been edited by jester (edited 06-07-2001).]

Jester-<BR>When I competed in 2000 I believe Christianson's (sp.?) team won that year. I know they were LLGC guides. It is tough competing against those guys. Wow, can they produce. I am curious to see who placed this year. <BR>In 2000 my partner and I wasted too much time on a dead hole that did produce while pre-fishing prior to the tourney. We also wasted a bit of time trying to re-catch a 30.5" walleye I caught the day before the tourney too. We were on mission impossible, but desperate for lbs!<BR>It was a blast and I hope to do it again. I am learning more about that lake everytime I go out there. <BR> <BR> <BR>

CD-<P>I can relate to your story. We went prefishing on the Thursday before the tournament. We were on our spot only about 15 minutes before I hooked a really nice fish. It measured 27.5". Not a monster- but it would have looked good on Sunday as the large fish caught that day was 6lbs 8oz (the large fish pool was about $1300 and we were in it....). <P>It was no coincidence that the spot we wasted our time on Sunday morning was the spot I caught the 27.5-incher.
