      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 .

Hosted by the Wigwam each of the first two appear to be 50 boat tournaments. How fast do they fill and what is the payout like?

Very nice events, sadly they dont fill but they should.

The Wigwams website says nothing about any of these

tournaments. Do a search here on FM and you will find

lots to read about them

Lund Boats is currently working in cooperation with Kevin Olmstead to develope a tournament poster in pdf. format that will appear on the Wigwam's site hopefully this week and hopefully a bait shop and convenience store around the state very soon. Word is, that Lund is also upping the anty to these tournaments by offering contingency prize dollars to the highest placing team that fishes both days of the tournements out of a Lund. This is above and beyond the "big-fish" prize that they already sponsor for each day of the tournaments.

Travis, If Fisky can't fish with ya, I can. My Streiffs partner isn't interested in any of them, so if anyone is in need of a partner shoot me some mail, or post here. Whatever I might lack in fish catching skills, I more than make up for in BS and beer drinking (after the weigh-in of course).

I'll throw my hat in the ring as well. I've wanted to fish these events the past couple years. I can probably pull it off this year but don't think my usuall partner will be able to. I could bring my boat if need be, but would prefer not to. Anyone else looking for a partner?

Is there a link to any more information on these in regards to entry fee/rules?

How about the Lund contingency? Any word on that and how much?

Thanks

It tough to find anything on line about this. You can

watch the Wigwam website but they havent had anything to

this point.

Its best to call the Wigwam, but if you can hang on few

days I will have a poster for you

You can look for information on Wigwam's web site starting next week. There will either be a page dedicated to the poster we've created or a link that will bring up a pdf file of the poster. This will be the case for all three tournaments this year.

And as Ripper mentioned, new for this year, for all three tournaments, Lund Boat Company is offering an additional $500 cash to the highest placing team that fishes both days out of a Lund boat. Good luck to all and let's fill this event up. Fishing has probably never been better on L.O.W.

Oh, by the way, listen to Curt Quesnell & North Country Outdoors Radio next Wed, Thurs & Fri mornings for live updates of the 2nd event of the Professional Walleye Trail at Winneconne, WI. It sounds like the fish have completed their spawn and are dispersing to many locations around the Winnebago chain of lakes. Should be fun and very interesting. See you on the radio!

Will they still allow guys from Fargo to sign up for the Fall one? Tips and I fished the first couple together, looks like I might have to make my way back up there.

Ripper, you're in for Devils in August.

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).

      That the best sounding plan yet!! same to you and your party.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.
    • eyeguy 54
      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.
    • Wanderer
      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!  
    • DLD24
      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.
    • ANYFISH2
      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?
