      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 .

South Dakota True Ice Tournaments

Recommended Posts

Rost

Dakota Angler is one of the proud sponsors of a new Ice Fishing Tourney series called "True Ice". It's being formed by five guys from the Sioux Falls area that participated in the Dakota Angler Ice Fishing League last year. We all know there are plenty of fishermen that are competitive or would like to participate in an event with the possibility of winning some cash. Well, the True Ice Series will fill that need. Also be aware that you can participate in the Dakota Angler Ice Fishing league at the same time.

"True Ice" will have a total of four events, with the Championship being the fifth event. Each of the four events will be at different locations and will cost $25 per event to participate. A person does not have to participate in each of the events. You choose which ones you want to fish and they pay the appropriate entry fee. But remember, the entry fees are non-refundable! 100 percent of the entry fees will be given back as prizes. To qualify for the Championship event, a person needs to finish in the top 10 at one of the preliminary events. Each of the events will be capped at 40, so it will be a first come, first serve basis. Dakota Angler will handle all registrations, but the registration period will not begin until November 24, 2006 - the day after Thanksgiving.

A True Ice Series "Kick-off" event will take place at Dakota Angler at a date that will be announced later. Plus, other information will be posted here on this forum in future dates.

For more info contact the Dakota Angler Bait Shop in Sioux Falls, SD.

I want to add these are going to be classy, professional, and fun events. We have teams arranged already to serve as officials and judges during the tournament. We have a state-of-the-art tournament scale on the way that weighs down to .01lb. Before fishing begins, there will be a shack and equipment inspection just so everyone can be insured that we will be holding an "honest" event.

We can't wait to let all the info out, and look forward to kicking this thing off. We also want to thank our existing sponsors, especially DAKOTA ANGLER, for all their help. If anyone else has a business and is interested in jumping in as a sponsor, let me know.

Also, make sure to tell your friends about this in case they don't check this site regularly. It should fill up fast.

It is singles--Here is an explanation why.... I also like the team setup, but we know how hard it can be for a person and his partner to make up to five tournaments together on 5 different dates. If you qualified with one partner you have to fish the Championship with them too. Some people have trouble finding a partner and we don't want to limit them.

I know we will all have fun fishing out there together. Carpool with your buddies, or pull each other out on the lake with your ATV or Sled, we just don't want you communicating about if you are catching fish or not while on the ice.

That is how we have it planned for this year. In the future that may change.

Also, Dakota Jim, if you are out there we may as well call it the Redneck fishing classic.

      Thanks snowfighter. Coming up Dec 9 weekend.my brother took some fish outta little turtle the weekend of Oct 7 th. Sounds like from your end of the lake. Seen pics, some decent pike.

      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!

       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.

      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
