      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 .

Has anybody seen the entry forms for the lake traverse tournament?

I’ve fished it the last 3 or 4 years and I’m a little worried that we, for whatever reason, have been lost in the shuffle.

Thanks

We fished a WWA tourney on Traverse that happened to be the day after the Walleye Masters Tourney a few years back. Wish we would have known about it before hand. It looked like a well run event!

Traverse was designed by the devil himself, but that's what so cool about it. It's definately a big fish lake too.

Good Luck!

I hear ya!

For the newcomer it’s very intimidating, the rocks in this lake have claimed many of lower units,

Typically we catch a great bag pre-fishing then either the weather or the walleyes through a monkey wrench into our system, this is our year.

I love it thou, throwing #5's and jigs at the shoreline rocks, bobering the rock piles, pulling plugs. Cant wait till open water!!!!!

Yes, one day event still, first come first serve team number sorted by mailed in entry (postmark date) usually fills up fast.

Last year they did have a Sunday event for those interested, but you had to fish Saturday to be eligible for Sunday.

I’ve not yet got a hold of Ben's Bait but still trying

I’ll let you know

I cant believe that out of all the FM'rs veiwing this site, nobody has a clue about this tourny or who to contact.

Ha! That was the day! I'm serious, I had a wave crash over my wavewacker leaving 6 inches of water standing in the back of my boat. It was the most miserable day on the water I have ever experienced in my life. Only 4 or 5 teams caught a weigh fish (we caught 1 tiny 8 inch walleye). I left the anchor out on the deck and it fell on my new rod snapping it in half. And, to top it off, we had been camping in a tent since Thursday night that week. Imagine how beat down we were!!!

On the ride home we said we would never to fish a tournament again. Well, that idea didn't pan out. In fact, I am kinda in the mood to try Traverse again!

Email me the info when you get it (email below)..

      I've gotten a lot of eyes this year, this being my best. Several in the 24" range and a LOT of eaters. A buddy and I took my mom out fishing and we got our limit of eater eyes in about an hour and a half. Good times!

      Nice! That looks like a good time.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties
    • jj56342
      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.
