      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 .

I did a bunch of lurking out on the river Saturday and the word was the same from all I talked to, not good. I saw more fish caught in 1 hour in front of my house than in my 3 hour quest. Are the results posted anywhere. Sure wish I had one of those River Pro's.

The results are not anywhere online that I am aware of. I know of a guy that lives on the river in Anoka and he has stats for every tournament since it started. I may try to get his number and give him a call to see if he has a soft copy of this years results.

I can say that 3 other FM guys(teams) finished in the money(top 15).

My tail is between my legs, and I do not want to even post where I finished........

BLB, it was good to finally meet you. We need to get out there together one day.

It was a fun day, although the fishing was tough and crowded. I personally don't like that live bait is allowed, but I guess the person who won likes it.

Kevin, it was good talking to you. Thanks for the tickets and the invites to join you at the ramp and the party afterwards. I had to get all the way to Little Falls by 6:30, so I couldn't make it. Congrats on the Big Fish and top 5 finish. That fish would have been great in my live well! What time of the day did you catch that big one?

Someone verify this if you remember. Were the dudes that won on Saturday the same guys that won 3 years ago (two tourneys ago)? I like their names Bassing and Bassing.

Very frustrating day on the water. Short bursts of hope, followed by long stints of anxiety.

Hawgtide, wish I could of met you. However, BLB pointed out your boat. So, I know who to watch with binos from here on out. smile.gif Where did you finish?

Also great to meet you HT and Ray.
Finally some faces and names matching up.

HT, I would love to hook up on the river in Monti for sure. Just a few miles from home for me. And its an area I don't fish, cuz I value my lower unit on my boat. smile.gif

No, the Bassing guys did not win a couple years ago.
Believe it or not, that is their actual names too.
The Wojiks(sp?) have won it a few times actually. You may be thinking of them.
I think Genz won it a few years ago too.

Hey Ray, I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to meet you. I saw your name up there. You beat me out by about 3/4 lbs, good job! We had 13.26lbs and finished 14th. I just couldn't find any kickers.

Ray I believe you have a declaration to make. smile.gif Go back to your post from Feb about the tournament. This is what you said...

"If someone brings in 18 pounds, I will come on this site and declare them the finest smallmouth fisherman to ever grace the earth."

I don't know if they are the best, but they are dang sure the luckiest!

BLB, are you fishing the Sartell tourney? If so, maybe we can run up there together and fish it one day before the tourney.

Correct.
The scale was NOT calibrated with the plexi-glass cover.

Kevins fish was 19.5 inches, and they said it was 4.74 lbs. NO WAY for a smallie out of the river.
But, it was still a heck of a lot bigger than anything we caught.

Did anyone hear how the top 5 caught the majority of there fish or atleast was it live bait? I know I had a blast and can't wait till next year. Maybe we will get that 4+.

Yes, I am in the Rivers Edge one too.
That would be great to get up there prefishing for sure. I don't know much about that section at all. I have fished it once, so it would be an exploration for sure. A much needed one for me.

My partner for the tourney is in Canada all next week, and he owns the jet rig, so my territory is very limited that I can prefish.

I thought the weights were a little high. I guessed that we had closer to 11lbs than 13.

I feel better knowing that someone isn't bringing in an average of 4.5lbs a fish.

BLB, we'll have to explore that area in the next week or so.

But! Rumor has it they were weighing your total bag without deducting for the plastic cover. Roughly two pounds. In other words, they didn't zero the scale with the plastic cover in there. I guess it doesn't matter since everyone was subjected to the same sytem.

I know we didn't have 13.95 pounds worth of fish. In fact, I told them to put it back on the scale one more time. Same thing.

So, I'll compromise and declare the Bassings the greatest smallmouth anglers alive on any July 10th, 2004 from now until eternity.

Kevin Turner can assume bragging rights on this forum until the River's Edge event. Congrats, Kevin on a very good finish.

I tried looking up the number of the guy that keeps all the stats, but he is unlisted.
I'll keep trying to find him, so I can post the results.

Got home late last nite. My first visit to the site since the tourney.
THX for kudos on big fish. I do stand corrected on the length of the our big fish. My partner Carl measured our 2 biggest: 19.5" / 20.75". I only saw him measure the 19.5" and mistook it for big fish. Anyway, I was talking with Dana, and he keeps stats on the tourneys, I'll see if he will share the info.
Looking forward to the Sartell tourney...They have a great place to hang for a while after the tourney.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!
