      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 .

Where would you stay?

Thinking of coming up with a few guys in early to mid-September. We rented a house boat out of Ash River in the past. We had good luck fishing Namakan (also like this part of the water system), have also stayed at and fished Crane with a little less success. This time we are staying at a cabin, which end would you stay at? Some earlier posts had mentioned a few places to stay on Ash River, I emailed them and got price quotes that varied enough to make a difference. Can you all tell me which one you like better, Sun**t or Ash*****r. Only tell me good things....we can't mention bad:) The place we stayed on Crane-you had to get to by boat and the mice out numbered my family....maybe it was a fluke. Any other ideas on Crane. I don't care to fish Kab, so I want to keep it between Crane and Namakan. Thanks in advance.

Hey Wallabee, Voyagaire Lodge on Crane has some very nice cabins that have thier own private dock. I know they recently did some renovations to them and are very nice with no mice. They are just down the road from the main lodge, so they are more private. On thier website they call them lake homes. They also have pics of them on thier website. Check them out Jim is also a great host and will do anything to make you trip great. I know from experiance. Good luck and have a great time!!

Wallabee; My friends and I have been staying at your first mentioned resort for about the past 17 years. We've tent camped, rented cabins and stayed in seasonal trailer sites. I came back from there 8/5 and had a great time. You won't be disapointded with that choice.

Thanks and keep the thoughts coming. Does one area have better fishing than the other this time of year (mid- Sept)? It looks like one you have to cross the road to get to river and the other has cabins on the river side of the road, is this correct?

You do have to cross the road at the resort I mentioned but thats about 18'wide and 2 cars in sight at the same time is considered a traffic jam. The cabins are setback about 30' from the road and it's another 30' or so to the river. They do have one riverside cabin that sleeps about 12 people.

Just heading up next week to Ash Trail Lodge, the other resort I believe you were mentioning. We have been going to the Ash trail for lots of years and love the log cabins, the location right on the river!!!! with your own dock steps away from the cabin...we find that very convenient in my family! The owners can't do enough for you and we like having the bar/restaurant right there too to check out the fishing reports and have some happy hour fun in the bar! We had trouble with our boat last year and their son spent the day fixing it...no charge! just so we could get back on the water. All the resorts are nice--owners are great but we like the layout and hospitality of the "first one on the trail by car" (heck, we never have minded the 12 minute ride down the river either...get our tackle in order, relax, enjoy the scenery...no problem for us!!) Good luck in your decision! We go again for the local Ash River Fish Contest third weekend of Sept.--maybe you'll be there??? Lots of fun too.

Don't have all the details on it but its a one day local event and they give small prizes for each species and a party that night at one of the local resorts (it moves around on the Ash River). Its not real serious at all but kind of fun for the day while we are up there. I just know its the third weekend of Sept and don't even know who's hosting it this year. Last year it was Ash Trail Lodge. Hope this helps in your weekend choice. I would call the resorts and find out more of the details (I do remember it was $10 to enter and that got me dinner too!)

      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
