      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 .

L.E.T.S. Statewide Mystery Lake Results

Recommended Posts

Sorry for the delay in posting these.

Conrats go out to Bemduckboy and his partner. They managed to put together a two day total of 42.65 pounds. They also took big fish with a 3.8 Walleye. Nice job guys. Second place went to the team of Chuck N and hia partner Aaron, with a total of 41.69. Chuck and his partner have consistently been in the top 3 in every tournament over the last couple of years. Third place went to Team Scenic comprised of Clueless and his partner Jeff Beckwith. They made an impressive run on day two and just came up short. That was one nice bag you guys had.

Below are the full results and totals:

WOW! Those are close weights! Looks like everyone got into fish on this event, and it being a mystery event is really impressive!

Thanks Paul for posting the results.

Another thanks to Clueless and family who hosted the dinner at their place again. Is your family sick of us yet?? smile.gif

We fished Deer Lake on day 1. Deer was approximately 260 acres. I thought this event worked out pretty good for the size of the lake and 11 boats.

Day 2 we fished Lake Beltrami. If I recall this lake was about 500 acres or so.

You guys are always welcome here!

This was a blast. I hope everyone had a good time. Ya'll seem real quiet - must still be catching up on sleep or something.

A big thanks to Bluewater for the discount and that great fish catching - or, (depending on the day) not so fish catching bait. lol I hope we didn't overwhelm Nick too much Sunday Morning!

Also a huge thanks to Paul for another wonderful meal! I swear they just keep getting better and better.

I think a big congrats are in order for everyone. There wasn't a weight under 20 lbs for the weekend! Everyone caught fish on lakes no one pre-fished and for some, probably have never heard of before. Good job guys!

See everyone at Pokeg!

    • Got skunked. Gave up after the second day and went grouse hunting instead. Had better luck doing that
    • Real nice night Monday night.  International Space Station was doing a fly-by.  When it topped the horizon, it was over southeast Alberta and when it crawled into the earth's shadow it was over the east edge of Wisconsin in just a little over 4 minutes.  Not all of these have the same white balance setting.  I messed with it to see what I liked better.  The tree was light painted with a small LED flashlight.  Opinions and critiques are welcome.
    • I have a 3.2 L Cooks Essentials digital that I bought first. Not big enough. So I bought a 5.2L manual Bella. You definetly want to get a bigger one. As for manual or not.....less to go wrong with a manual. My Bella holds more food than the smaller one and works great. I use the Cook's Essentials only when I have 2 things to make. Plus the manual costs less. The Bella sells for about  $75. Digitals will sell for over $100. Four other members of my family now also have  them.
    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
