      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 .

What rig are you going to be in this Sunday?
I will be in a 16 ft Jon boat(painted camo) with a 40 hp jet drive Evinrude. My partner owns the rig and he calls it his "piece of **** ".
I call it "a rig that gets me where few people ever have a chance to fish". smile.gif

Anyway, I know a few FM'ers and what their ride will be.
Hawgtide is the Basstracker jet rig.
KT is the "Sherry" Red River Pro.

I know there are another 3 or 4 FM'ers in it, and just wondering what you are gonna ride in, so we can meet up.

BLB, SH should be proud of his rig! I can only wish my early jet boats were as nice as his.
There will be several lurkers fishing the tourney in RPs. After you and SH pick up your 1st place check, you guys can buy the FM'ers first round....

I will be there in a green 14 foot jon boat with a 15 hp Mercury on it. I was contemplating using my Warrior but there are too many rocks that I don't want to deal with.

Good Luck.

KT.... I always call my rig a piece of carp... mostly so I will feel elated when I have the opportunity to get in to a River-pro. That 72 wachita just keeps floatin'. I am thankfull I have something that gets me within reach of some of the best fishing in MN. BUT, I'll actually be able to say why the heck was I fishing in that thing for so long. That is besides the monetary constraints...of course.

Might have a surprise for you on Sunday... We'll see.
I am looking forward to it again. Good luck to all.

Me and my buddy will be in the tourney for the second year in a row now. We just graduated from High School so we arent big time fisherman but just enjoy the atmosphere of fishing in a tournament. We will be in a blue crestliner with a 40 hp evinrude motor I think. So we will just see what happends, good luck everyone, cept KT you dont need it haha, just kidding.

I'll be there in a grey 1775 Pro-V with a 80 Yamaha tiller. Anyone have a jet conversion for that motor?

BM I wish, but I have non fishing related errands all day.

I did make it out last night on the Camden stretch. 15-17 smallies (all small and some pocket bass) and 3 cats but 1 of the cats Rob caught that went 23"! Not bad for North MPLS eh? And we only fished for about 3 hours maybe less. Jigs were the ticket for us yet again.

I will be in a red Lund Predator with a 60hp Mariner. I think we are boat #17.
I grew up on this stretch of the Mighty Mississippi, west side of river across from the Sartell landing, but I spent all my time water skiing instead of fishing. Man was that dumb, if I would have only known how much fun it is to catch those "bronze backs" back then!!
Good luck to all my fellow FMers'!!

      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.
