      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 .

Just wondering who if anyone from here is planning on hitting the river in Grand Forks this weekend? I'm gonna be over there fishing the North Side Friday and possibly Saturday too.

If your out and see me, say hi. I'll be fishing in my 17' MirroCraft w/a 90hp Evinrude on the back.

Talk to ya'll later and hope to see some of you on the river.

I won't be up there this weekend, but I can give you a report from my cousin from this past Wed- Wow!!! He spanked 'em. Apparently they're not in full spawn mode yet, or maybe I'm off and just coming out of it up there- caught big fish and great numbers. Hopefully you'll find the same this weekend.

Fished Friday and Sunday and I do believe the Cats are a spawnin'!

All the big Cats I caught had cuts and marks all over 'em. Not sure if the spawn is the reason, but I'm guessing thats why they looked so rough? Water tempurature was in the upper 70's and water flow is about "normal"...maybe even a little slow...

Friday I caught (1-17lb Cat) (1-13lb Cat) (2-22" Cats)

(1-21" Cat) and (1-27" Cat)...

Sunday was HOT!!! Ended up catching (1-16lb Cat) (1-10lb Cat) and (2-23 1/2" Cats)...

It definetly wasn't fast, but it could have been worse I guess. Both days I used Cut Sucker Minnows, and caught most fish on the trailing edge of runs near deep water.

It's kind of funny though, both days almost every fish was caught on my Circle hook rod with the biggest chunk of bait I could possibly fit on it! It seemed they were only interested if the bait was freekishly big?

Well, that's my report from this past weekend.

Talk to ya'll later....

Catmanlee did you have any problems getting your boat in the river in Grand Forks? I have a 16' deep v lund with a 90hp and I can't get it in the river in Crookston but would like to fish for some cats in Grand Forkss if the river is high enough! Thanks!

GF & EGF keep their ramps in real good shape. With the number of guys fishing the river over there, they don't stay mudded in very long.

I'd say you'll be fine! River should be plenty high for your boat. If you are concerned at all about depth, south has much more depth than north although I don't think it should be an issue whichever way you go.

Hanson is spot on... The ramps are easy to use and are in great shape. As for the river levels, plenty deep for any size boat, just use caution and watch for dead heads and "junk" floating in the water. The shallowest water I was finding in the center of the river was 6-8ft deep, so it's definetely better than last year...

Good luck if you go out.

      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
