      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 .

Warrior Boats Lake Minnewaska Fall Walleye Classic Sept. 6-7

Recommended Posts

Glenwood, MN---75 two-man teams will take to the water this Saturday-Sunday (Sept. 6-7) at Lake Minnewaska, for the 2008 Warrior Boats Lake Minnewaska Fall Walleye Classic. Who will win this year's Fall Walleye Classic is anyone's guess, but one team will go home on Sunday with the $6,000 guaranteed first place payout. For 11 of the 75 teams in this year's tournament, the first place payout could climb to as high as $13,500 and for 2 of those 11 teams, as high as $21,000 (with an additional $15,000 in Warrior Boats manufacturer / dealer contingency cash on the line).

"It's going to be really interesting to see how this year's tournament unfolds," said Fall Walleye Classic tournament director, Corey Bohn. "The field is stacked with a lot of good teams and it's going to be extremely competitive."

Kenny Neumann from Glenwood, MN, and Jack Greengo, from Alexandria, MN, (Team Depot Express) return as the defending 2007 champions, and according to Bohn, are considered to be a real threat to repeat in 2008. "In the past four years Kenny and Jack have finished fourth, second and first, so they're definitely a team that you would expect to be in the thick of things heading into Day 2," said Bohn. "When you look at the roster of teams, there are numerous teams who have won various titles throughout the region and in the Dakota's, so it's going to be extremely competitive."

"With three of the four past champions and 13 of the top 15 teams from last year in this year's field, it makes for a strong contingency of teams," Bohn continued. "Throw in the two-time MWT champions in Darrin Herd and Bryan Winterfeldt and a 2008 FLW Tour championship qualifier in Tony Renner, and it's about as competitive as it gets."

Tony and Charlie Renner (4th overall in 2007) return as the two-time defending Father/Son Division winners, as do last year's Husband/Wife Division winners, Jim and Dodi Huston (9th overall in 2007).

As stated by Bohn, 11 of the teams in this year's Fall Walleye Classic are eligible to win an additional $7,500 ($13,500 total) in manufacturer contingency cash as the original owners of a 2007 or newer Warrior Boat, and two of those 11 teams are eligible for another $7,500 in Warrior dealer contingency cash ($21,000 total) since the boat was purchased at Minnewaska Marine in Starbuck, MN (official contingency cash dealer) for the tournament.

Teams will begin fishing at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday, with the weigh-ins to begin at 3:30 p.m. at the Glenwood City Beach. The public is encouraged to attend the weigh-ins. As recently announced to the teams, the Fall Walleye Classic will be expanded in 2009 to include a Spring Walleye Classic on June 6-7 on the Alexandria, MN Chain of lakes. The 2009 Lake Minnewaska Fall Walleye Classic will be held on Sept. 12-13, 2009. Entry fee for each tournament is $350.

    • You are 100% correct... a guy has to be smart about it. There is nothing magic about inverters... its takes a lot of DC juice to make a little AC juice. On the flipside though, I have a 120vac 32" TV/DVD player that only draws 51 watts AC.... meaning that it should (hypothetically) only draw 4.25 amps DC. Even with a 15% draw added for the inefficiency of the inverter, I am still under 5 amp. Usually I will run the generator for a few hours between 10 am and 2 pm. Then it is off until 7 pm or so... Then I will fill it up and let it run through out the night. It will run about 9 hrs on eco, so by 4 am or so it is out of gas... but the batteries are topped off nice to run the routine again. The 4 hr run isn't necessary, but does offer some security. With a 5 and a 7 yr old fishing with me the majority of the time, the TV usually doesn't turn off during the day.
    • I believe the crawlers are not natural forage and using them as bait emulates large larvae.  
    • Like I stated earlier and others with more knowledge than anyone on here have as well..we should have waited...I also was unaware of the no trade clause which he was able to get without any less $$...pure stupidity...we'll know in 8/9 months how this pans out...it boot straps us from further improving the team with younger talent is my main issue. As far as a captain, lifelong wild...blah blah blah....if he is such a pillar, such a great player, such a leader of the team...where has he taken us? The playoff record speaks for itself....time to dump guys like Koivu at the soonest opportunity who have done all they can or at least decrease their pay in later years not increase them...they took us as far as they could...and we've already got vets like Parise, Suter, Spurgeon, Granlund, Coyle, Brodin locked in on long term deals; give one of them the C to carry us forward.  
    • Where ya going? Numbers are pretty bad this year... I would suggest looking at Edmunds or Faulk county if you haven't already locked in somewhere.
    • This is my first time hunting bear. Have two coming to the bait, both after dark, and the small one shows up at odd times in the early A.M. I was thinking a honey burn might tempt one or the other to come in during shooting time. The big guy comes in after the little one at night, but he hangs around for an hour. The smaller one comes back multiple time during the night. I have tried to come in before shooting time, but I have bumped him twice now.  
    • DC to AC converters work well on low AC current but takes a bit of DC battery current. Example a drip coffee maker uses 900 AC watts (7.5 amp) which draws 83 amps DC battery current. 15 AC amps draws 165 DC battery amps. (Based on 110 VAC & 12 VDC). Batteries die quickly converting to AC. https://www.batterystuff.com/kb/tools/ac-to-dc-amperage-conversion-run-through-an-inverter.html
    • Saturday I am going to be duck hunting and I always am excited for opening day!  I know I will get some shooting in but let's just hope the ducks are where I want them.
    • You know there are no guarantees that he signs here for less money. He certainly would have gotten more elsewhere after this season based on comparables. Who are the replacements for him? We have guys that may be a year or two removed from being a top 6 guy, but this buys us time. Worst case he slides down to 3rd or 4th line and one of our young guys still on an ELC elevates if his game drops. He could also be consistent with his last two seasons, a solid #2 center and allow the likes of Kunin and Ek to develop down the lineup.
