      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 .

Where do I begin?? It was my first time staying at Appledoorns Sunset Bay Resort and I didn't really know what to expect. I have read good things about the place and Paul (the go to guy). I can't say enough good things about him and the resort. We opted to tent there on the weekend and was pleasantly surprised at how nice the campsite was. It was on top of a hill with perfect shade cover, lots of trees, a campfire pit, and running water. All of which I didn't have at the last resort I stayed at on Mille Lacs. As soon as we pulled in Paul was there to greet us and gave us a vallet tour to our campsite on one of his golf carts. (Already more than some resorts would do) Well we fished all day Friday and when I woke up Saturday morning to start my truck it wouldn't stay running. Paul noticed right away that I was having troubles and called the local auto parts store for me. Well I picked up a part but wanted to try changing my battery first. I ran to the boat and got one of my extra batteries and as soon as I got off the dock Paul was there (golf cart and all) to pick me up. Obviously batteries aren't light. He drove me back to my vehicle and even offered to let me use his tools. Well it turns out that my truck all of the sudden runs fine and we make it home on Sunday with no problems. I forgot to mention, he also lent me a gas can to gas up my boat to save me the time of pulling it out. I just wanted to say THANKS Paul for all the help and hospitality. I would recomend Appledoorns to everyone. I would love to come back, that is if you let me. wink.gif

King-fisher:

I think Mark Stanley and I saw you, we were talking with Paul for awhile towards dark.

After witnessing it first hand, I can honestly say that Paul is one of the hardest working resort managers I've ever seen. Between answering phones and showing people the places they'll be staying or cleaning fish, he's fixing things, backing down boats, and planning the next-day's adventures. Great guy and a great place to stay!

Tom and Joel,

Thank you so much for the kind words. I can't tell you how much they are appreciated.

Tom,

Funny that you chose those words. I was thinking the same thing after you and your girlfriend left. What a class act!

You folks are welcome back at any time.

Floodjet,

We do have a few picnic tables available, but they go fast. If it's not too much trouble I would say to bring it.

      Fuses are blowing for a reason most likely an undesirable reason. Much better solution to fix the problem than eliminating the fuse. Eventually the sort or item causing the fuse to blow will eventually make it to the wires. Just a thought, although not recommend, there is enough battery current where you can stick weld 11 gage steel with a 12 volt battery. Continued or prolonged welding (same as a short) could cause to battery to explode. Word of caution, led acid batteries are filled with sulfuric acid.

      I agree with del, used boats are more than adequate. I bought a 1990 Crestliner Sport for $5,100 in 2013. Did some floor and live well work, added co-pilot to the trolling motor, Vexilar SonarPhone connected to my iPad, and a tablet with the Navionics Boating App for GPS. Welded verses rivet hull was my desire. Tops out at 43 mph with 115hp merc 2 stroke. Handles the 4' Ottertail waves quite well. Picture of boat on Ottertail which I fish several times yearly along with other Ottertail County lakes and lakes closer to home I frequent often. At 73 its easy to launch / take-out. Look for a family owner, one that uses the boat once or twice a month the boat/motor will have limited hours of use on it. In my opinion the used boat is the only way to go.

      Here's a quote from the MinnKota digital onboard charge manual. "INLINE FUSE The output cord has an inline fuse on the RED end. The fuse serves as protection from surges and short circuits caused by a damaged charger output cable. If a fuse blows, replace it with a 30 amp ATC 32V automotive fuse. Improper battery connections will normally not cause a fuse to blow since this is handled by the internal circuitry of the charger."

      That was my son cooking up my birthday dinner!  I'm older and have more grey hair (a lot more) than dark.  Be sure to say "hello-I'm Del"  if you see me!  Will be back up for a few extra days over Labor Day.

      There was a musky tourney last weekend, at spring bay.  Some club deal.   I think that might have contributed to the issue.   Normally I am one of few boats out on wakemup fishing walleye.   Like count on fingers of one hand.
