      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 .

The last years wwhen they have sprayed the lake for weeds they have had a almost total wipe out of the population of all weeds.

Yes, there are some very nice panfish in this lake and sometimes you have to do your homework to find them. I dont know of to many lakes that have sunnies and crappies that nice and also in the numbers that Washington has.

Its still a great panfish lake. Seems like I can usually catch bass when I dont want care to or when I'm not targeting them.

I would try an area just nw of Bakers bay deepest hole around 14fow coming up to 8. Another spot that can give you some fish is the shallow area around second point and grassy island.

When I have to search out the panfish I will use a smaller spinner with a crawler and slow troll and usually you can find some active fish.

I AM MOST CERTAINLY NOT SAYING THAT I CAUGHT NO FISH TODAY I CAUGHT A FEW, "NOTHING LARGE OF COURSE" BUT ALL I WAS GETTING AT IS THAT OF THE COURSE OF THE LAST FEW YEARS ALOT OF WHAT I CONSIDER SOME OF THE BEST CABBAGE IN THE AREA HAS VANISHED, THE SLOP HAS BEEN WIPED OUT IT IS NEXT TO IMPOSSIBLE FOR LESS EXPERIANCED ANGLER TO FIND GOOD COVER AND MORE IMPORTANTLY QAULITY BASS

I AM FAMILIAR TO THE AREA IN WICH YOU ARE REFERING TO IN BAKERS AND IT IS A GOOD SPOT. ALTHOUGH I DID NOT FISH THERE TODAY, I HAVE CAUGHT A FEW PIGS THERE IN THE PAST. ALL IM SAYING IS IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE THESE SPOTS ARE OR CAN'T REED A GRAPH REAL WELL YOUR PROBALLY NOT GOING TO DO REAL WELL. BECAUSE WHAT I CONSIDER GOOD CLASSIC BASS COVER IS GONE! SORRY JUST VENTING A LITTLE BIT ,JUST UPSET BECAUSE IT IS MOST CERTANLY NOT THE LAKE IT WAS 5 YEARS AGO! NOT EVAN CLOSE! AND TO ME THAT IS TO HIGH A PRICE TO PAY TO HAVE A CLEAN SHORELINE FOR WHAT WAS AN TRULY AWESOME LAKE

I have never fished the lake and was thinking about trying to find some pan fish on thursday or friday. Does the lake turn nasty green or is it like most of the lakes in the area. Any advice would be great.

Hi I have fished Washington for aprox 30years and the cabbagge used to be alot better than in recent years when all the curly pond weed set in the cabbage started to vanish in areas where it used to be. When the association started to spray for the curly pond weed I was beginning to seed cabbage where I had not seen it in years. I can not tell you how this year has been as I have not been on the lake much due to work,family, Millacs and Leech fishing.

Good Luck

Farmer

      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"

      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
