      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 .

What: Minnesota Fishing Challenge, a multi-species team fishing tournament

Where: Saturday, May 30, Gull Lake, headquartered at Ernie’s on Gull

Fishermen Support Teen Challenge

The first annual fishing tournament to “reel-in” funds for Minnesota Teen Challenge is set for Gull Lake on Saturday, May 30. Teams will be on the water, while friends and families will enjoy games and activities on shore.

Brainerd’s Al Lindner will serve as honorary director of the Minnesota Fishing Challenge presented by Mills Fleet Farm. He said, “The support for this event has been spectacular. Fishermen are pulling together to raise money, and their day on the water will be a bonus.”

Each team raised at least $500 in tax-deductible sponsorship dollars from friends, relatives and businesses. When the tournament was first proposed, Lindner said, “I bet many teams will find more than $500 in sponsorships.” He was correct, and with more than 80 teams participating, the final tally will be impressive.

Teams will bring the fish they catch to the weigh-in stage at Ernie’s on Gull. The free stage show and weigh-in ceremonies will be full of laughs, tall tales, fish stories and fun, starting at 3:30 p.m. Trophies for the Full Throttle walleye and bass divisions and the Nor-Son panfish and northern pike divisions will be awarded along with an array of prizes. All fish will be released.

There will be more than fish at Ernie’s. The Fishing for Life youth activities and games, and the Centershot Archery range will also be open to youngsters. These hands-on games and shooting are free to the public starting at 1 p.m.

Minnesota Teen Challenge is a faith-based organization to help people find freedom from the destructive habits of alcohol and drug abuse. Sam Anderson, director of the Brainerd facility said, “This support from the fishing fraternity means so much. Thank you! Our goal is to help each person who walks through our doors find true freedom from addiction. Hope is being restored one life at a time here at Minnesota Teen Challenge.”

    • 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.
