      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 .

It sounds like a big storm is coming for the weekend. Should make things interesting.

I'll be staying in a rental out of Hunter's.

There is a storm alright and it's between the New owners of Liberty Beach where the contest has been held for years and Frank "old owner of LibertyBeach" along with Hunters resort where the tourney has been moved to.

The New owners of Liberty Beach are basically trying to get an injunction to stop the Hunters tourney.

I'm guessing Frank and the Hunters Resort attorneys are better and BOTH contest will go on.......

Anyway I'll be prefishing tommorow and post back when I return in the evening.

I don't think that the new owners purchased the rights to the Perch Extravangza. Maybe by default they thought they did. But it was called the Lib Beach Perch Extravangza. I doubt Frank had a copy right (Perch Extravangza). If he did or there was something in the sale contract there wouldn't be any question who had the rights to it. It will be interesting to see how this works out. I plan to be there. (Hunters Point)

I think your right I can't see Frank giving up his cash cow but maybe it was agreed to have at Liberty?

Frank "endorsed" the contest to George at Hunters Point. Frank has retired from the resort business.

There was a pic out not too long ago showing Frank, George and Steve at Portside in front of the Perch Extravaganza sign advertising the new location.

Not sure of the legality of Anglers Paradise North keeping the contest at Liberty....We'll find out soon enough I guess. Knowing George, the show will go on!

I'll go out on a limb and say there will be more people at the Liberty Beach tourney then the Hunters Resort contest.

I just checked. $750 for biggest perch at Lib Beach contest. Both same hours 8-2. Why couldn't one of them have their contest on Sunday? I would have fished them both. I might get entry's for both and split up our group for the drawings.

Me and 2-6 others will be up there for the contest. Hope their access holds up. The area in front of hunters has really been cracking open the last few days. Just came back from there today with some nice jumbos. Biggest was well over a pound. Hopeing to find them in the same spot on Saturday. Bit the best early and then were very fussy as it got later. Fished till 11:00, but caught most before 9:30. I think we are all heading back after the contest. Good luck to all.

I will be out of Hunters with 8 friends from The Cities, D`uluth and Wisconsin. Is Hunters going to have the Jumbo board up with all the biggest perch dissplayed? or was that a Liberty beach board? We will be on the mud probably boot or sliver, look for the black pyramid shacks and the party!!

      Hey Tommy, Glad to see you're still rocken!. Frank

      Well, people live all over this state and I live 4 hours away. I'm also 54 years old and have been ice fishing for a half century. Was asking a simple question with a simple answer needed. Thanks. Please someone report if they can.
    • eyeguy 54
      looks like 3 so far.  anybody else up for this? 
    • Chill62
      Sorry dude I tried but this page isn't most active with facebook groups being the biggest way most people share ice thickness in a realtime way.  There's only one way to really know and that's grab a spud bar and start hitting as you walk and drilling holes to see.
    • sartellangler05
      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.
    • NELS-BELLS
      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels
    • Wanderer
      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.
    • FirstIce
      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
    • Wanderer
      Are they both the same age?  Equal condition?  Do you hand drag or machine pull?  Weight will matter a lot. You really have to consider how you plan to use the house.  Happiness with the houses performance is the biggest key.   Otherwise it appears to be a trade from a $480 house to a $700 house based on new house prices if I looked at the right Frabil.
