      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 .

Hoping to find out how the fishing for eyes and perch has been on Cass. Headed up there June 24-30. Staying at Wishbone resort. Also bringing my young girls and was hoping to get them on some panfish. Any help would be appreciated.

Hey there Fireman,

Our family has been going up to Wishbone for 20 years. This is our 20th anniversary at Cass. Bill and Lois will take great care of you as will their son Ron and his wife Linda. If this is your first time up at Cass I would strongly recommend you getting in touch with Brian Jones who is on this site and book him for a half day or full day on your first day up there. We have been using Brian since he started his business 5 or 6 years ago and he and his father fish Cass non stop. They are on the lake almost every day and he will show you how to fish Cass, where to fish and what depths to fish. He is a wealth of knowledge as well as a polite and friendly young family man. Give him a call or just post on this thread, he is always talking to people on here. He will hook you up, no pun intended!

Gene,

What size boat do you have? Will be up in a few weeks and not sure if I can make it under. How is the water level going through? I have a deep V with full windshields.

My buddy and a guide both have pretty decent size boats and they make it under so I think you'll be ok.

Jperch,

What do you want to get under there for anyway. Pike has not done much, as far as I can see, for the past 5 years. Maybe Geno can shed some light on this matter. What's the dillio Geno? LOL

Can't speak for your time of yr (July/Aug), but in June all the seasonal guests at our resort (many oldtimers) spend lots of time in PikeBay. We never have done any walleye fishing in there in many years, but I also know one guide who really loves to hit Pike so I think it has lots of potential.

So much water...so little time!

Wow,

I did not realize that so many guides pound Pike. I havent found an eye there for years. What are they looking for? Perch or toothy critters?

I see more big 'eyes than toothy critters come out of Pike.

We go in for Perch and Rockies. Only went once this yr for a half-day. Got some of each but not enought to make it worth another trip. Our other boat found big gills in Allen's so we joined them instead of trying Pike again.

Another of the chat-guys hit Pike pretty hard for 'eyes and like it alot. Maybe I'll have to follow them in one day.

We ran into 'em all over the lake. They were on the feed during our trip. Good luck on yours.

      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.
