      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 .

Wigwam Summer Classic results

Small field of 9 teams in the first ever Summer Classic

out of the Wigwam. There was some jockeying of rules and

prize money and all of the teams kicked in extra for a

big fish pot and paydown to 3rd place.

Jeff Franta and Al Standly won first with 16.64

Mike Vacura and Mike Anderson second with 16.16

Mike Lindholm and Curt Quesnell third with 9.94

Vacura and Anderson opted out of the big fish pot

so the 9.13 pounder they caught on Friday didnt count

and I didnt write the big fish teams name down (GRRR)

but the winning fish was 2.55 pounds on Friday.

Saturdays big fish pot won by Lindholm and Quesnell

with a 19 1/2 incher weighing 2.79 pounds.

Fished in big wind and big rains on Friday, two teams

didnt make it back in time from big runs and took zeros Friday.

Mike Lindholm has an great ability to keep the boat on

line and in the right spot even in rediculous wind. I have

no idea how he does it. What a partner!

Thanks to Fisky and WalleyeJon for sharing info on the

bite that they could have kept under wraps. It was a

very cool thing to do.

To get back at our 5pm deadline we had to leave the spot

with only 2 fish on Friday in 6 foot waves. The waves

were 8 feet and better out around Long Point. 10mph in

the 620 Ranger until Morris Point when yet another wind

switch allowed us to power up a bit. Made it with 20

minutes to spare.

Nicer weather Saturday and not near as much wind. We

worked reef tops with bouncers and crawlers and caught

only dinks until noon when we began to troll. First

pass 6 fish. Two good ones, two big ones and two little

guys. Now with 2 in the well in just a few minutes it

seemed we were cruising. Our next fish came almost 2 hours

later. A 26 incher went back, then a 19 1/2 incher EXACTLY.

Now we need only one more fish for our 4 fish limit with

about 45 minutes to fish.

Check in time was 4 pm Saturday. If we left at 3:15 we

would get back safely in time. Wait..is that the wind

picking up again? Steadily increasing wind out of the

Southeast would blow right up the shoreline heading home

again. We get a 15 1/2 incher in the bucket it goes

and at 3 pm we pull the plug head in. Pull up the dock

at Wigwam at 9 minutes to 4 with enough fish to pull

us up the 3rd place from 7th.

Hats off to Kevin Olmstead and to the Wigwam for giving

us a chance at some nice contests on Lake of the Woods.

Kevin said it will be back next year. So will we.
