      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 believe they are 3 day events, but it might be just 2 guaranteed with the top 10 or so fishing the 3rd day.

I think bassmasher may have confused the FLWTour events w/ the FLW League events. Entry fees for the league events are $300 per boater and $150 per co-angler for each one day qualifying tournament in 2007. If you qualify for the 3 day league finals there is no fee.

MN Division

April 28th Mississippi Bay City

June 16 Mille Lacs

July 21 Lake Bemidji

WI Division

April 21st Petenwell Flowage

June 2 Wolf River Winneconne

July 7 Green Bay

There is more information at the FLW Outdoors website or call (270) 252-1000.

Thanks guy, but I found my sign-up partner. $450 for three tournaments with a 20 place payout and a $3500 top prize as a co-angler isn't alot of money. Not to mention the knowledge that can be gained by tournament fishing. The league will limit sign up to 100 co-anglers and 100 boaters. With the new payouts both should fill up.

"A lot" is relative I guess. $150 is less expensive than hiring a guide for a day and you have the opportunity to recover expenses if your team performs well. Plus there's always an opportunity to network and pre-fish with other contestants. By fishing these events I will learn more about each particular body of water thereby expanding my future opportunities and, hopefully, I'll learn some new techniques. I will be probably be fishing the WI events so I hope to learn more about pulling cranks behind boards on Lake Poygon and become better at fishing crawler harnesses in Green Bay.

GatorBait,

That is a very generous offer and much appreciated. I can't think of any specific questions now but I'm sure I will have some when May rolls around. I fish Bago a lot so I could probably trade some tips w/ you.

primetime,

Here's the October press release announcing the upcoming season. As far as I know, it's the only information available at this time. Registration will likely begin in early February. In addtion to the preference given to Ranger, G3, Polar Kraft, Champion and Stratos boat owners and TBF members, priority is also given to those that sign up as boater/co-angler together (although signing up together doesn't mean you'll fish together).

18.Oct.2006

BENTON, Ky. — FLW Outdoors announced Wednesday its 2007 Wal-Mart FLW Walleye League schedule with more lucrative awards in every tournament and a total purse of $632,450 over 10 events held on some of the nation’s best walleye fisheries.

Boaters fishing the FLW Walleye League will now compete for top awards of $7,500 in every qualifying tournament, and co-anglers will compete for as much as $3,750. These awards, based on a field of 100 boats, include $7,000 cash plus a $500 contingency bonus from Ranger, Polar Kraft or G3 for boaters and $3,500 cash plus a $250 contingency bonus for co-anglers. Payouts extend through 20th place in each qualifier.

The FLW Walleye League features three one-day qualifying tournaments in the Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin divisions. After three qualifiers are complete, the top 35 boaters and 35 co-anglers from each division will advance to the $141,950 no-entry-fee Wal-Mart FLW Walleye League Finals where the winning boater will receive a $47,500 Ranger 621 powered by Evinrude or Yamaha. The second-place boater at the FLW Walleye League Finals will receive a $32,000 Polar Kraft V1910 Pro DC powered by Yamaha, and the winning co-angler will receive a $27,000 G3 V185F powered by Yamaha.

The boater and co-angler points champions from each division will also advance to the $675,850 Wal-Mart FLW Walleye Tour Championship where they can win as much as $150,000 and $22,000, respectively.

FLW Walleye League qualifiers are one-day, $49,050 events held on Saturdays. The FLW Walleye League Finals is a three-day event with the full field competing on days one and two and the top 10 teams advancing to day three. The winner is determined by the cumulative weight from all three days.

“Our company was founded on providing affordable, close-to-home weekend tournaments,” said Charlie Evans, president and CEO of FLW Outdoors. “These grass-roots anglers are the heart and soul of FLW Outdoors, and we take great pride in providing them with the best possible tournament options as well as a clear pathway for advancement to competitive fishing’s highest levels.”

The top 10 boaters and 10 co-anglers from each FLW Walleye League division in 2007 will have the option to advance to the 2008 Wal-Mart FLW Walleye Tour.

Competition in the Michigan Division begins March 31 on the Detroit River in Trenton, Mich., followed by a May 19 tournament on Lake Erie in Monroe, Mich., and a June 30 tournament on Saginaw Bay in Bay City, Mich.

Teams fishing the Wisconsin Division will take to the water April 21 for a tournament on Petenwell Lake in Monroe Center, Wis., followed by a June 2 tournament on the Wolf River Chain in Winneconne, Wis., and a July 7 tournament on Green Bay in Oconto, Wis.

Minnesota Division competition will kick off April 28 on the Mississippi River in Bay City, Wis., followed by a June 16 tournament on Lake Mille Lacs in Isle, Minn., and a July 21 tournament on Lake Bemidji in Bemidji, Minn.

The FLW Walleye League Finals will be held Sept. 13-15 on the Mississippi River in Moline, Ill.

Entry fees are $300 per boater and $150 per co-angler for each qualifying tournament in 2007. Ranger, G3, Polar Kraft, Champion and Stratos boat owners and TBF members have priority entry into the 2007 FLW Walleye League. Entry dates will be released soon.

Named after the legendary founder of Ranger Boats, Forrest L. Wood, FLW Outdoors is home to the Wal-Mart FLW Tour, Wal-Mart FLW Series, Stren Series, Wal-Mart Bass Fishing League, Wal-Mart Texas Tournament Trail presented by Abu Garcia, Ranger Owners’ Tournament Trail, Stratos Owners’ Tournament Trail, Wal-Mart FLW Walleye Tour, Wal-Mart FLW Walleye League, Wal-Mart FLW Kingfish Tour, Wal-Mart FLW Kingfish Series, Wal-Mart FLW Redfish Series and Wal-Mart FLW Striper Series. These circuits will offer combined purses exceeding $43 million through 247 events in 2007.

Be aware this is information to sign up for the tour events, but the word is it will be the same for the league.

The registration details for the league events has not been released yet. Very soon though.

What's the TBF membership? I'm an FLW member, is that the same thing?

Also, am I understanding that if you sign up as a boater/coangler combo, you still are put in the pool for the draw?

      I've experienced the same thing - V can be tricky through the ice. There's a ton of structure to choose from and you're pretty limited with how much you can move. We've had the most success just staking out a likely spot during primetime. Drill a bunch of holes and wait for the fish to move up. Tip-ups have helped to cover more ground and locate fish. Like Cliff said, bite windows are real short so you've gotta be out there when it's happening!
    • rainylakefisher
      Did they ever find the two missing boaters from the incident a couple weeks ago?  Haven't seen anything...
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      I agree with gimruis. Do not expect to see the same type of action or type of bite that you can get in the summer on open water! Generally the winter bite is short, ( a couple hours in the morning and a couple hours just as it is getting dark), especially if you are fishing for walleyes. Dark cloudy days can sometimes be the exception. What works one day may not work the next day also. I like to jig with a 1/8 oz. to 1/4 oz. spoon baited with a crappie minnow or just a minnow head on one of my lines. The other line is a plain hook set line with either a fathead minnow, shiner, pike sucker, or a rainbow chub as bait. Type of minnow that works best varies greatly depending upon where you are fishing! I like to set up close to rocks that drop into deeper water most of the time. Cliff    
    • smurfy
      anyone with any info as to how the ice conditions are up this way???????????
    • gimruis
      While I can't offer you any sound advice on your success while ice fishing, I can tell you that very rarely is the consistent success you've had in open water going to be near as good as it is on ice.   And that is mostly because the water is bitter cold and fish are cold-blooded, meaning that their activity is only going to be as much as they need to survive.  Other things working against you are the inability to cover as much water as you could from a boat and not as many bait/lure options, in addition to being limited to a vertical style of fishing.  I'm not saying that you should give up completely, but just keep in mind that a variety of factors comparing one to the other could be why your success isn't sustained.
    • OhioVike
      I have owned a place on Lake Vermilion(WE) since 2011 and have absolutely enjoyed every visit and season on the lake.  Our knowledge of the lake and fishing patterns have grown tremendously.  However, this experience has not translated success onto the ice.  We catch some fish, but feel like we should be doing better.  Typically we use small gear 1/16th or 32nd jigs with minnows, Spoons with just a minnow head or when we go after panfish we'll use wax worms.  We fish all the same spots and don't catch nearly as big or many fish.  When we do catch most of our fish, it's typically on mud flats and we drill a lot of holes.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Any ice starting to form again?
    • Dirtyfisheyes
      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful
