      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 .

FM'ers fishing the Anoka and/or Rivers Edge tourney

Recommended Posts

Mark Christianson

I am just curious what FM'ers are fishing either or both of these tournies this summer.
I am in both, so I would love to meet some people to put some faces to the names.
I know Hawgtide is in both of them, so I have one guy to try and find.

I heard some time ago, that there was a tourney in Anoka again in August some time. Is there any truth in this?? I can't seem to locate info on it.

Ooops
My bad.....
I also know the famous KT will be in both as well...................
But I know who he is, and I bet he remembers my son. Good old KT autographed a crankbait for my son after his Rivers Edge victory last year. My son still has it hanging in his room with pride.

PS - Thanks again KT. My son was beside himself to have a "professional fisherman" autograph a lure for him. wink.gif
You made his day!

The Ranger was near the first island south of Dayton. Don't know if he went any further North. I guess he has Progressive Insurance.

I wish I was fishing in this tourney (or two). I could put the smallie magnet powers to the test!

Oh well, maybe next year - we've always got the smallie magnet tourney this year and we all know who will win that wink.gif.

When is the Anoka Tourney again? And where is the weigh-in station? If I remember correctly it's on a Sunday and I wanted to get up there just to check out the action. No way am I ready to actually be in the tourney, nor can I afford it at this time.

The Anoka tourney is July 10th.

I am not sure where the weigh in is yet. At the meeting a couple months ago, there was talk about having the weighin at the docks below the police station possibly.

I wondered that too. I also wonder how many RiverPro's are going to be shooting up the river ahead of me. I saw a Ranger almost all the way to Dayton last weekend! I couldn't believe someone would take a Ranger up there. I'll bet there won't be any up there in Mid July!

There is a channel to easily get into the Dayton area, even if water seems low.
Now, how far you get up into Dayton is another story.

Where were they? Passed where the power lines cross the river near the boulder field? You can sneak past that if you are careful, but if they were past the small rapids area where the river splits around a couple islands, and the main channel necks down a lot; then they were in troubled waters.

Is the river really navigable in that area? There's a lot of rocks just below the dam. I guess the water level gets deep quickly?

You can get up to the dam easily in the Rum.
They have a channel marked with buoys.

Maybe someone will wear that jacket they stole from me! wink.gif

You'll be able to recognize me by my uncommonly good looks, or my beer gut, either way. smile.gif How often do you hear those two in the same sentence?

Are we related? Could you be my long lost twin?

What are your real names? (Except Ray. Its kind of obvious)
My name is Mark. Its a little easier to ask people if they are "Mark", than to walk around and tap everyone on the shoulder and ask if they are "BLB". I think we will get some funny looks.

My real name is smalllakeba$$. You must be my long lost brother!

It's more fun when you have to ask everyone if they are "HawgTide"! That should get some interesting answers.

I'm fishing both of them! Can't wait. These are the only two money tournaments I'll fish this year. Fun times.

We (the FMers) should work out an attire system to identify each other at the Anoka dinner. I don't know, a certain hat or something, blue shirt, whatever.

Should we have a side bet, or just bragging rights to this forum?

We could hang Pop-R's from our left ears.
Or I could wear a white Hanes T-shirt with Biglakeba$$ written in one of those fatty permanent markers.

**** , I can't come up with anything logical.

I'll be fishing the Rivers Edge tourney or the St. Stephens Lions Club whatever you want to call it. It should be a lot of fun. I usually fish near Little Falls so it will be interesting fishing further south.

I will be fishing the rivers edge tourney once again this year. Second annual event for myself and my buddie. We fish the river quite a bit and fishing in a tournament atmosphere is just a cool thing to experience. We are by no means professional bass fisherman but, it all depends on the fish so maybe we will get lucky this year. GOod luck to all!

Thanks BLB.

Anyone bringing their Wife and/or Girlfriend? Or is this just for us fishermen? One could always use a designated driver for these events.

I thought the flyer stated the social hour was from 5:30 to 6:30 with dinner at 6:30.

I have to skip everything but the social hour. It's my wife's birthday. Nice timing, honey, LOL. Can someone wrap my dinner up and bring it to me on Saturday morning. smile.gif

BigLake is trying to make us miss it! More for him.

Hey BLB, I forgot to remind you that the tournament was moved to Sunday. I'll see you Sunday morning!

Ray, I'll get your portion and try to remember to save it for you. smile.gif

      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?
    • timjones
      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.
    • JerkinLips
      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.
    • Finnish Flash
      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.   
    • cookie129
      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.

      Can anyone recommend a place nearby the Metro Area where a person can take their air rifle to sight in the scope since you cannot shoot them in city limits.  Plus, probably not smart to just pull up to a random field to sight in, either.  Thanks!!
    • bbfenatic
      Went out early Sunday on smaller lake before the Vikes game...5" of good ice and it was growling so making more before it warmed up. Caught a bunch...pic of the dozen crappies we kept...but it was fast and furious from 7-9am
    • ozzie
      Happy thanksgiving Cookie to you and your family!!!  Glad to see you made it through the summer and are getting ready for the long winter on such a Grand Lake!
    • cookie129
      well we finally got our home computer back so it sure is nice to be able to type again instead of using the phone.
      The wind were wicked Monday night but by the looks of it this side of the lake held together so that's real good news.
      Lonnie and his buddy braved the winds yesterday and headed out ,they managed to get 7 of there 8 but it was a tougher bite then last time they were here on Saturday.
      This weekend is going to be crazy up here as I have had quite a few inquirers about lodging on shore. Buddy Hillmen may have something but he is tough to get a hold of as he is busy building that mammoth house.
      We ran into a hiccup on blue thunder and have a part we can not get off to replace. I'm hoping Tom can come over and button it up. as Devon worked his butt off to get er done. You could see the disappointment in his eyes, Blue thunder is my work horse and I'm feeling the pressure of getting her up and running..
      Our new used lake truck may show up sunday if all goes well. Its name is Cheyanne "I think that's spelled right. It blew a radiator in fargo and is arriving on a trailer .
      Old Minnesota is the only house that I have not detailed as I also had some major work on her that was ignored while I was trying to break 80 at the golf course this summer. Every one have a great thanksgiving and if your coming up here make sure you check in the resort your going out of as they have been on the ice everyday
