      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 .

Rivers Edge smallie tourney question

Recommended Posts

Mark Christianson

Does anyone know who to contact about the Rivers Edge smallie tourney?
Last year we were boat number 100 signed up, and I want to make darn sure I get in this year before its too late.
I cannot remember what group sponsored that tourney, and there was no advertising that I ever saw.
I just happened to see a post out here at the last minute about it.

Hey Kevin, I'm having a helluva time with the wait for Bass season. I've got every lure in my tackle box organized and all the hooks sharpened. Don't know what to do the next 2-3 months. frown.gif

I've never fished that area before, what's it like? Does it compare to the Monti area? I went above the Blanchard dam once.

Maybe I'll sign up for the tourney just to give me a reason to go up there for the day.

Last year, tourney day was the first time I had ever been on the water up there. VERY impressive bass waters.
Fishing was incredible. No idea if it is consistently that good, but wow.

What was the winning weight last year? 5 or 10 fish limit?

Ask Turner.
I think he could tell you to the 1/100,000th of an ounce what the winning weight was.

5 fish.

HT, The river above the 2nd bridge is very similar to Monti. The fish seem to be "chunky" unlike Monti where the fish seem longer and thinner. Come on up and fish it, it is a great time.

As far as the wt last year, I can't recall, but I do believe the boys from Team Beaver Tail were two hundreds of an once away from 1st.

Did everyone get their entries in? I see that they are flighting people in order that they receive payment.

I'm heading down to Bama tomorrow for some practice. The Largemouths are moving into the shallows getting ready to spawn, fishing should be awesome.

Contact Pam @ 320 393 2584, she may be the only one to answer your question.

Kevin,
How's your Monti visit going? Was that you I saw on Saturday near Monti? I've seen so many RiverPro's lately, I can't keep up.

Kevin, I met another RiverPro today. His name was Kevin, also. He said he had one of the first boats you made. Nice guy.

The fishing is starting to pick up again. The river dropped about 2 feet since Sunday. It will probably drop some more by the weekend. It looks like the water levels are going to be a repeat of last summer.

I'll probably see you out there next week.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!

      There's preliminary testing then if flagged it gets shipped to a lab I believe in CO to verify the results.

      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and sleds...no side by sides yet.

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
