      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 .

General Rules-

1) This is a TOTAL Catch and release event.

2) All rules and regulations of the State of Minnesota must be observed at all times. There will also be a boat and trailer inspection for aquatic vegetation prior to teams launching their boat. There will also be a livewell and storage inspection at this time.

3) A cell phone or marine band radio must be in the boat at all times. This is necessary for safety and to contact other teams for large fish verification.

4) Teams must respect other teams. No fishing within 30 yards of another team. Any team witnessed to pull up to another boat and make contact will result in a disqualification of both teams. Non league boats must also be respected at all times.
The only time boats wiil be permitted to come in contact with one another is for on-the-water large fish verification.

5) All check-in deadlines will be strictly enforced. A watch synchronization will take place in the morning at the rules meeting.

6) There will be a staggered start. Teams will start in the order in which their applications arrive with payment.

7) Scoring- The scoring system will be based on weight converted to points.

Point values-

Walleye= 1 point per pound / Minimum size = 12 inches

Pike= .5 points per pound / Minimum size = 20 inches

LM/SM Bass= 1 point per pound / Minimum size = 12 inches

Sunfish= 2.5 points per pound / Minimum size = 7 inches

Crappie= 2 points per pound / Minimum size = 9 inches

Perch = 2 points per pound / Minimum size = 9 inches

Lake Trout= 1 point per pound / Minimum size = 16 inches

Muskie= Any legal fish will be worth 8 points

One bonus point will be awarded for each Pike, Walleye, Bass combination brought in for a maximum bonus of 3 points.
Fish will be weighed according to species then multiplied by point value to get the score for that species. In case of a tie, the weight of a teams largest fish will be the tie-breaker.
Teams will be allowed to have large fish verified by another team while on the water.

8) Limits- Each team will be allowed one persons' legal limit.

9) Lifejackets- The wearing of lifejackets while teams boat is under power of main engine is strongly encouraged.

10) Live wells- All boats must have a live well or other means such as a cooler with an aerator capable of keeping fish alive. Stringers and fish baskets will not be allowed.

11) Fishable waters- Any water that can be accessed by boat without having to pull, push or drag the boat will be deemed tournament water. The use of a push-pole, oar or paddle will be allowed.

12) All teams must remain in their boat except in case of emergency, or at breaks and weigh-ins.

13) Fishing in Minnesota presents a wide range of weather conditions that anglers must face. Events will only be cancelled in the event of lightning. The event will not be completely cancelled, only postponed until the lightning has passed. In event of lightning, all boats must return to the starting area within 1/2 hour from time lightning is spotted by Event Chairman. This will allow ample time for teams to reach safety. Teams failing to report in will loose all points except under conditions where teams must take immediate cover and unable to make it back to the starting point. Teams will be contacted by cell phone or marine band radio if a postponement is called.

14) All rules and scoring decisions will be made by Event Chairman and are final. In the event of a rules violation or conflict by the Chairman, the co-Chair will make the call. Any rules changes will be announced prior to the event.

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!
