      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.

    • At the KMart at Nicollet and Lake in Minneapolis, there is a flock of pigeons that numbers several hundreds. Last Thursday going home from the Super Market I saw a large hawk make a strike at one, but missed.  This was a pretty dark bird overall and much bigger than a Coopers or a Sharpshin and heavy bodied not at all slender.  The attack was a straight line shot from a street light roost on a bird sitting on the shorter parking lot light post.  It seems to me that the attack was launched from a perch about a block away.  The target flew off and there was no chase, the attacker just returned to its previous roost.  I could not get over into the turn lane and go into the parking lot to get a closer look.  The main flock of pigeons didn't actually seem to notice, and there were even some stragglers. Is it possible that goshawks are starting to come into the city in the winter?  From a goshawk I would have expected a chase.  There are certainly plenty of pigeons, and the local falcons have gone south...  I know they are supposed to avoid human concentrations, but then so are loons and they are now common city residents and rest here when passing through in the spring.  We are getting all kinds of wild life in the Cities these days and not all of it goes around just on two legs.
    • I'm soon to be 40, still have never had a REAL super bowl party!   I will sit and hope.   Besides, at 7:11 last Sunday I pulled something in my neck/shoulder.  Might be a hole in my sister and brother in laws garage ceiling.
    • Lol. Dad and I were talking about this after the game last weekend after I had to tell him over and over that I have not been alive when the vikes have ever played a Super Bowl. You old timers can believe in what you want, but us Gen-X kids are saying SKOL!
    •   I'm sure if I had the time I could have spent 10 more minutes and made a nice one out of Oak or Cherry wood! Or found a blue Genz box on C/list and been done with it!
    •   You didn't try to call me, I would have given you some old oak boards I have laying around and let you use a few of my basic woodworking tools like a jig saw, an oscillating drum sander and a router with a round over bit.    I always tell my son, if something is worth doing, it's worth doing right.  
    • Ooof, that sucks.  Been there, done that.  Somebody’s still being affected by our day in the soup at temps like that.  Woulda given the world for a few studs in the snowmobile track!
    • Got a set of old new stock mora 10in blades to put it on, and drilled  5 holes in 18-20in of ice no problem with the Milwaukee 1200in/lb-clam plate-mora 10in. Didn't skip or jump. This is gonna be nice for the wheel house.    When I had the HT Polar Fire shaver/chipper blades the drill would cut out because they were to agressive.    So so if anyone comes across some mora 10in shaver blades or 10in shaver blades in general let me know.
    • Sorry to be the guy that quotes himself but more info is needed.  Otherwise, yeah, might as well apply for A season if it’s just a general hunt.  And hope the weather cooperates.  
    • It was 31 below zero when i found  this slush .This is only time I got stuck it was about 2 feet of slush .  I had to jack it out of the water and let it sit for a day half.  I had to hook  3 widetracks together to get it out.
