      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 .

Spoke to a friend of mine who lives near the landing, he tells me they did dredge it out some and they supposedly are going to be tarring a parking lot. The swimmming beach will now be where the old landing was. They took down the old shed(Shelter) down and cut down all the trees that were there. I fish this lake all the time, I went down there the day before did much work and was suprised to see all the reeds in the swimming area. Where they are putting the new landing, they had to remove some reeds, so the reeds they removed, they put where the swimming beach was. I can't wait to get down there to see the changes.

Spoke to my friend last night that lives near the landing, They worked Monday on it and has not seen them since, Looks like it is ready to be paved, but doesn't know what they are waiting for. He say's there is something in front of the landing so you can't launch a boat. He is going to keep me posted, and I will post it here when I hear something.

What if they only dig it out mediocre?

I landed there once this spring when the wind was blowing into that shore at about 25 mph...It was fun to say the least.

They moved the landing down to the East end of the property. I grew up right next to where the landing is going to be. It used to drop of there somewhat, But my friend who lives by there, Said he thinks they dredged it out some, but wasn't positive.

Took a drive down to see the Francis Landing. They do have the base coat of asphalt down. They made parking for about 15 or so trailers. The landing itself looks to much deeper, they have only taken out the reeds where the concrete part of the ramp is at. They need to get the reeds out, so you can get out to the lake. It is looking really nice except, They planted grass on a small portion of the hillside, and some (Contact Us Please) thought it would be cool to ride ATV up the hill and mess up the new grass seed.

Anyways, landing still closed.

I guess the landing is open. The reeds out in front of the landing have not been removed, don't know what the plans are for that. Might go out there and give it a try today and will let you know what the landing is like later.

I am interested in seeing the new landing. I remember how hard it was to land a boat at the old one, so im guessing it cant be that bad.

I see what your saying about everyone not going out there. Its a great lake.

      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

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!
