      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 .

My family and I currently have a park model on a resort on Osakis and am looking to move it to the Aitkin area. Anyone know of any good resorts in the area? I have two young boys so something family friendly would be best.

Thanks in advance!

Hey Crappie Keith

My name is Eric Anderson and I have a cabin up on Big Sandy Lake, and since there are no bass on Big Sandy, I was wondering if you could tell me of any lakes near (Big Sandy and McGregor Area) that hold some nice sunfish and largemouth bass. P.S. i did not care for all those people rippin on you on some of those older posts! thanks for any advice/info

Eric

That's not entirely true.

Up in Aitkin lake ther are some monster bucket mouths.Big gills too.

Rat lake has some big bass in it. Try the backside or north end of the lake.

Minnewawa has a bunch of bass & nice gills.

Work those cabbage patches this time of year.

Wilkins,French,Gun& Fleming have decent bass & gill action.

I am normally doing eyes right now ,but as it gets warmer I like to toss some buzzers or casting spooks looking for that top water explosion.

Get up with me & we can go to some spots I know.

I could run a guy ragged in a days time.

Thanks CK. I will check them out. We were up in the area all day on Saturday looking at cabins. We looked into Hickory lake, but I think the lake is just a little small. Looked at the 3 lakes up north (near Palisade) that you seem to frequent but did not find the right fit yet.

We are not sure if we should do the cabin or stay on at a seasonal so we are looking at everything.

Thanks again!

Hickory is a small busy lake.

There are better choices.

Call Ruby's resort on Farm Island to see it is still operating.They might have a spot for a seasonal set up.

      Wasn't sure, but I found it. looked like  you were cooking something on the grill.

      We were out near Taylors.  Couple boats and us and a pontoon and a pleasure boat cut right between us "sight seeing".  Blows my mind how they cut right between boats that are fairly close to each other fishing an area and cruise right through without a care in the world!  Del, I thought last year you figured out which place I had?

      Fuses are for fire protection. If you're willing to risk a fire in your boat if something goes awry, have at it. Your insurance company would be happy to have a good reason to keep all the premiums you've paid and refuse your claim. Hopefully no one will get injured or die in the fire.

      Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.

      Looking to get on some walleye and crappie this week, looks like mayflies were out in full force last night when I was on the lake. First year fishing this lake, where does a guy start?

      Thank you one and all, especially you Tommy. Some very kind words and ditto to you my friend. "Ace" "It's just fishing man"  
    • tacklejunkie
      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were
