      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 .

Hey fellow anglers,
On Feb 17th, Fishing Minnesota will be hosting the first annual Ice Leaders Pro Challenge on Mille Lacs Lake. The event will be held starting at 9am from Mac’s Twin Bay and will end at 4pm.
Everyone is encouraged to attend.
The cost will be $5 per person and trophies along with prize money will be awarded to the winners. The total prize money will be determined by the number of participants.
This will be more of a fun event than anything else, so please make arrangements to attend. A list of the rules are as follows-

Rules For Multi-Species Ice Fishing Contest

1) Entrants will be paired into groups of two (2) if there is an odd number, one group will have three (3).

2) Entrant with last name beginning closest to the letter A will get his/her choice of spot to fish first. If the other entrant so chooses, after the mid-way point of the tourney, both entrants must move to the second entrants spot of choice. In event of a team that consists of 3 participants, the time will be divided into thirds.

3) Both entrants must fish within 200 feet of each other.

4) All contestants must be back to the tourney headquarters by the time specified or face disqualification.

5) Entrants may fish anywhere on the lake, however, entrants will not be allowed to leave lake surface in order to reach another portion of the lake or to return to tournament headquarters by deadline. All vehicles must leave from the starting point.

6) One (1) legal limit of fish may be registered by each entrant.

7) Scores will be kept on the official score sheet which will be handed out at the beginning of the tourney.

8) Fish must be immediately measured, scored by the opposite entrant, and then immediately released.

9) Fish will be measured with mouth CLOSED and tail PINCHED.

10) Fish that are scored MUST remain on the score sheet. No score “Culling”. When a fish is caught, the entrant must decide weather or not to score the fish or release it without being scored in hopes of catching a larger fish.

11) In case of tie, LARGEST fish of any species will determine the winner.

      Looking to get on some walleye and crappie this week, looks like mayflies were out in full force last night when I was on the lake. First year fishing this lake, where does a guy start?

      Thank you one and all, especially you Tommy. Some very kind words and ditto to you my friend. "Ace" "It's just fishing man"

      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.

      I've been by a time or two trying to figure out which place is yours.   I was out on wakemup last night too.   Got nothing, on crawlers.  Started out at merry go round, went to "picnic island" (little island east/south of taylors).  rigged along edge of those two humps in like 18-25 feet.   Musky guys were coming so I turned.  They turned too, chunking baits in the vicinity of my boat.   Then some guys in a pontoon pulled up and anchored in front of me  and threw out bobbers.   Fished a while longer, and it was getting sort of dark so went home.   Weird.  I've been on those humps a bunch of times this year, and suddenly I get company.   And, even though it is a pretty big area they gravitated to where I was.  I'll be out today too, so if you need help with supervision, let me know.    But I will drive by to check out the new construction.

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.
