      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 .

There is a lot of great prize's for only a $30.00 entry fee. Is the truck a prize or a 1 year lease ? It would depend on how far I would have to travel but it sounds good.

I think you are saying this is a ICE fishing event right?

The prize list is great for $30.00 I do not now where this lake is but would drive there if it was not more than 3 hours a way from Duluth,MN. Well let us now what you plan to do and we will be there.

I have set up a drawing for a $1000 gift certificate at Russells Sport Shop for those pre-registering on line. Russells is a local sport shop in Star Prarie, WI that sell guns, bows, bikes, canoes, fishing gear etc...

I'm in... My aunt and uncle told me about it last year. They said that they had a blast and got sunburnt. I already have the year long license so might as well use it. That is a nice prize list. How many people came last year?

Okay, here's the scoop: I had to finalize the list tonight so the flyers could go out for the St. Paul Ice Show on Friday. #11 will be a clam ice shack. The grand prize will be a 2008 Dodge Dakota extended cab 4x4 pickup with a msrp. of $27,535 everything else will remain as it was in my original post. If your at the show sign up for one of 25 free entries to be given away after the show we'll be at booth 1007 and running the trout pond.

I have been to this contest the past 4 years, and have won a prize 3 out of the 4 times. This is the best looking prize list yet! I actually won the truck last year, so I might be a little biased, but this event is a blast! I won a $200 dear stand with a .22 pearch! Not many contests where that can happen! Definately recommend this to anyone who can make it!

    • Was in Joes sporting goods last night and they had the 8" K drill for $219
    • Sounds good to me.
    • It should be as long as the wma butts up to the lake,
    • Great catch for that spot!  
    • I want to hunt on a Wma that's borders up to a lake. It is legal to launch from the Wma and roam around the lake and hunt on my canoe? Keeping in mind I'm away from houses and not being on land or property.
    • Hey guys, now that you guys are pulling out your houses to check them over it is also a great time to add the Sure Step.  If anyone has any questions let me know or check out my Facebook page SureStepSD.   Thank you.
    • I've been using the Eagle Claw inline for 4 seasons now and it's always been a good cheaper option.  Never had a real problem with it.  For all the drag issues I hear about it, it didn't let me down at all when I hooked into a 27" lake trout while fishing for rainbows last season.  On that note, I was able to try 13's 6061 reel for a bit last season and that sucker is so freaking smooth that I'm going to get one this season.  If don't want to spend $80 on a top-of-the-line inline like 13 Fishing, the Eagle Claw works just fine at $30.
    • I am all for folks finding and sharing a good deal. Just don't let it be a direct link to another forum. thanks
    • CM, what is Chi doing with Hossa?  If Parise can't go or only can give 75% why not shelf him like Chi did with Hossa and save that cap space.
    • Stealing this idea from the old "Meat Sales" thread, where people share info on great deals grocery stores are currently running. Since we're getting close to the hard water season, I thought we could create a thread where people can share any good deals on ice fishing gear or apparel. Anything goes, if you see a sale on ice fishing equipment and think others might be interested in it, let us know.
