      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 .

Fished pulaski this am and did fairly well on bass. Must have caught a dozen rock bass, 10 or so Largies with an 18 incher and a few 17s mixed in. Saw 5 walleyes floating in about a 400 yard strech near the north west shore close to docks. Whats with that? Deep hooks, caught deep and not released fast enough. Largest one was proabably 18 inches and the smallest was around 14inches or so... Kinda depressing. Anyone else see these floaters? Not many boats out there at all this am. I really don't like their parking situation they have going there. smirk.gif

There are'nt too many people that would release a walleye of any size on pulaski. I would say warm water bends before hooking mortality. Pretty interesting though.

May need to check on the thermocline. That may have something to do with it?

didn't do so hot... pattern that worked well wed didn't produce yesterday. We ended up in 8th place with two small 13.5 inch bass. Winning weight was 7lbs with three... I had that the day before prefishing with an 18, and two 17's... Oh well. Too much recreation out there. Jet skiers everywhere with very little regard to how close they get to you while your fishing outside weed edge. I can't stand that.

How many boats were in your outing (tourney)? Is there a fee?

I think there was 11 or 12 that night. We have a limit of 15 but have never got that many. Yep there is a small fee. Twenty per boat. There is only two or three weeks left in this league though as they started the thursday after opener.

$20.00 per boat, per week times 10 boat average. Makes for a nice piece of change.

Yeah but we pay out 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, as well as put a certain % away for the final tourny. 2.00 out of the twenty per boat also goes into a cash pot for largest pike of the day. All in all it's really more about pride and for me its a great way to just get better and better. I beleive that after fishing this league the past three summers I have become much more familiar with area lakes and a much more well rounded angler than I would have ever been. I must admit that I've become much more into Bass than I ever thought I'd be. Used to be just Walleyes and pike... Now, probably targeting bass about80% of the time on the water. While I'm here... what do you guys know about Granite lake and specifically the Bass population? Later. smirk.gif

Most leagues I have come across are bass leagues. Even the fishing club I fished with, was more into bass then walleye. Northerns are, just to bad you wasted your time. I liked fishing bass but I eat walleyes so I would there catch eyes now.

      so here’s the scoop , as most fishermen know most of the resorts up here started letting wheeler and sleds out on the lake last weekend. That does not mean you can go any where you want as the winds have shifted the ice a couple times and opened up a few cracks . Check with the resort you access and stay in the areas that have been checked out.
      The fishing has been pretty good.
      I have had a few projects that were put off untell I got laid off from the golf course and mother nature again made my projects more challenging. I’m making progress slow and steady and maybe this time I have learned my lesson not to put these off when its 70 and sunny. Chasing breaking 80 at the golf course has got me processed.
      From the looks of it there a good chance we will have all our sleepers on the lake by the 7th of dec.
      My plans are again to go out of Hillmens resort and help Buddy hillmen with his road. He has built a 2 story house that may or may not be on the lake as its huge, I think it can sleep 8 to 10. Its crazy big 14 by 28.

      I appreciate the feedback. We love being out on the ice, so we'll keep plugging away.  Good luck to all this winter and be safe out there!

      I seen in the  paper it will be at Leech lake again this year.

      I was worried about the wire size too. Thanks ProV. I guess I can’t avoid it. 
    • fishingstar
      you don't have any wires on your 7 pin plug that is heavy enough.  
    • PRO-V
      I would run wire straight to the battery with an in line fuse at the battery and use a separate 2 prong connector at the trailer.

      Unfortunately they have not found them yet. Freeze up  with the thin ice has really hampered the search. Too much ice for boats and not enough to travel on. As the ice thickens the searchers are working their way deeper. Such a sad situation.
    • KidMoe
      I’m hoping I can get some advice from you fine folks. I’m looking to install a small electric winch on my snowmobile trailer to load my skid house. I’m wondering if I can power it off the 7 pin connector?  From what I can find, my truck is fused at 10 amp and most of the winches I’m finding pull somewhere around 50 to 60 amps at 1500 lbs or so. I’m wondering what I could do to still run it off the 7 pin. Do I need to add a battery? Maybe a capacitor? i appreciate any thoughts you might have!

      I spotted them also this evening out from McKinley. A few more days yet before I will give it a try! Cliff
