      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 .

Metro LETS - Clearwater Lake Results

Recommended Posts

Thanks much to B.J.'s Resort on Clearwater Lake for hosting tournament headquarters this year for our event! If you are ever in the area, they have some great tips on where to fish, maps, tackle, bait, rentals, etc. Look them up, they are on the west end of the lake (just North of the Lake Augusta channel).

Thanks again to Catch'N tackle and T.J.'s Tackle for the tackle prizes.

CONGRATS to team Jighead for their 1st place finish. You guys are doing something right for sure! They walked away with 1st place and a lifetime supply of Berkley Power worms from Catch'N tackle (maybe not life-time, but a huge pack), along with (2) $25 gift certificates for Catch'N tackle.

Congrats to Catch'N and Bob'N Stovetop for 2nd and 3rd place finishes. 2nd went to team Catch'N, and came down to the wire (broken via tie-breaker). Third went to Bob'N Stovetop with the only walleye and "Triple Play" for the day.

Congratulations to Crystal Connection, who came away with 4th place and a couple of great tackle packs from T.J.'s Tackle (including a wide assortment of Case Plastic baits).

This was by far the closest event we've had in the Metro series. All teams brought in nice fish and there wasn't a lot of weight separating the entire field. 1st place went down to a tie-breaker. Big fish was a 3 way tie. Congrats to everyone for finding some great fish. We easily broke the all time weight record for a Metro LETS event (and it wasn't from just the top couple teams, all teams weighed in nice baskets of fish).

The total weights for Clearwater are 214.4 lbs. of fish and 17.9 lbs. per active team (shattering the all time Metro record at Madison of 162.4 lbs. and 13.5 lbs. per active team).

Duhhhh....yea, I see it now.

It was good, a lot of surprises and a lot of fish on 2 fairly small lake (1 was 250 acres!)

I'm sure Paul will post soon

A close one smile.gif We had a lot of fun, the weather was awesome the whole weekend and the panfish sure were poppin'!! I thought that 30 pounds was going to be needed to win this one, but the larger bass were hard to find and the pike were pretty small as well. A three-way tie for big fish and a tie for first place, made things interesting at the end.

A special thanks to Mike for allowing some of us to stay at his place saturday night, you were a very good host, much appreciated. smile.gif

Here are a few pics from the weekend...

Actually Scott/Andy (taxman) may have had a 4 lb. bass now that I think about it. I know Chris/Andy and our 4 lb. fish were pike.

Well, we had a rather dissapointing finish, but a fun day despite boat troubles(I swear it'll be all fixed by the next one!) We musta caught at least 20 bass during the day, but most were only 12-14 inches long with the exception of our 3 that went 2lbs or so. Pike were elusive for us, although I did catch a big ugly bowfiun fishing for them! Good weights for just about everyone, I look forward to the next event!

    • I’ve shoveled the end of the driveway four times today. I left the shovel down there for them. No one has used it after crossing. Thankfully it’s melting time next week.  Standing down there and one of them pulls up onto the mound, stops, rips off and throws all the snow back. Our driveway is uphill. Without that space, the car doesn’t get up. Plus, just another pile for the homeowner.   Before this weekends snow, it had melted down to the grass. Yep. Grass dragging ditch riders we had. Luckily there’s enough ice on the driveway on most spots. Everyone is right about it being a right of way...common courtesy to pull up onto the highway seems to have been lost. This gives snowmobiles a bad name.  I shouldn’t need to call the ‘club.’ They can see my driveway when they fly over it....get the problem?  Not everyone is ripping through like this. Some obviously have respect and work over the snow easy.
    • Looking at throwing a front hitch on my truck and picking up a plow, mostly for my house and a couple others within a few miles of me.  Would also like to bring it to the Cabin a few times a year but they all say max travel speed is 45 mph.  Is this just due to over heating or are there other issues it could cause?  Curious if I could just throw it on the rear hitch for highway driving.  That would solve the overheating issue. I have a trailer if needed but would rather not have to drag that around if I don’t have to.
    • Cub, at least the one in Inver Grove Heights has been having whole frozen ducks for 99 cents/pound. I went back and got a couple more yesterday.
    •   Drove home from the Park and Go last night  at 11:30. (after digging out) *grumble grumble*
    • 8" inches last night. We'll save yea some!    
    • Keep in mind fellas they are noted for their rabies propensity.  Don't get paranoid, but be alert.
    • We got snow.  8" Thursday and 8" last night. With 4 driveways to clear I'm getting my riding time on the wheeler.
    • Luckily I don’t have starlings where I live, or house sparrows. The holes on the house I’m buying are designed to prevent starlings from getting inside. I don’t know how effective that is, but like I said, no starlings here
