      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 .

We made the same choice Travis. Had two over 18 in the box in the first hour. It was hard to justify keeping the next four we caught just over 15, so back they went. Ended up weighing four at around 8.5lbs total, kinda wonder if those other four would have got us in the low end of the money? Oh well, I'll do the same thing next year if we get a couple nice ones like that right off the bat. Thanks to all who helped out, congrats to the winners, and see ya there next year.

We made some choices early that cost us some cash too.

We had a 18.5, 19.3, and a pair of 22's in the first 1/2 hour... We didn't give much thought to tossing 15-16's back. Later on the bite died on us. My partner managed a 26.5 that had us both pretty excited for a while... nice big fat one too... We ended up weighing 5 fish for 10.? pounds...

Always next year...

Won a nice rod/reel combo as a door prize. Thanks Conway!

Seems we were all stupid that morning. My partner and I did the same thing. Oh well, I was just happy to weigh some fish this year. Last year was quite humbling to say the least. Another great tournament, I'll be back next year. Thanks to the crew at Streiff.

Nice to meet you Walleye Jon, breif as it was. Thanks to you and Fisky for rescuing my phone. I appreciate it.

Widetrack, I saw you around a few times but didn't get a chance to come over and say hi. Maybe next time. Did you get the e-mail I sent you a while back?

We were live bait fishing with crawlers and leeches. We started at 5 mile and then to Arneson's until 12:30 and back to 5 mile for the last 6 slots. We only had 1-2lb fish at 12:20 and then the right one bit. When we got back to 5 mile the bite was on in a very small spot and we picked up the rest of our limit before 2:45pm.

tuffboy,

That was me in the Lund next to you on 5 that gave you the thumbs up when you were pulling out. Good job. Your marker was right on our way point from pre-fishing, I guess great minds think alike.

Travis, I got to fish with your buddy Heiser on Sat. Very nice ride in that Tracker Tundra. Pretty slow day up until 3:00 but the last 2 hours made up for it. Dad and I were tied up right behind you at the dock in that Alumacrap boat at the tourney.

Ripper, were you our pulling plugs out of Arnesens on Saturday? We saw a Tundra cruising around the rocks. We were the white Yarcraft kind of sitting by ourselves on Arnesens. On Friday some friends did pretty well longlining cranks south of 16 mile.

Ya, we were working a small piece of the deep stuff-29'-that had eyes, sauger and big perch. Donno why they were in that spot but there were lots of them. How long have you had the Tundra? I'm going to a wheel next year and Tundras are on my short list.

My Tundra is a 2005. I will be selling it this fall. I've quit telling people how awesome the ride is and make them go for a ride. Ask Lip Ripper, he'll tell ya. We caught one nice perch on Sat as well.

      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!

      Tomorrow is the big day for duck hunters!! May you all get up early and find your spot filled with ducks.

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!
