      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 .

Yes it is this weekend. You can sign up the morning of the tournament if you need to. They are having a meeting the night before the tournament that they encourage you to attend but isn't totally necessary. What do you think of the two day tourney concept?

Food and Prize money to be given out Sunday following the Weigh in at Centenial Beach, On Saturday Eastside acres will be open early for coffee, donuts, ect

The money raised on this tourney all stays local to improve lake access, lake shoreline, oxygen levels and youth education!!!!!

Happy fishing!

Boiler, I know this is not the place for tournament listings, this is also in the tournament section, just figured I would put the info here based on the questions. So it is in both locations.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff

      Sorry, don't remember TJ Hooker.  Besides I make it a practice to avoid hookers....  (rim shot)

      This year?   It is new this year.... Apparently a lot of businesses are having trouble hiring seasonal employees.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.
