      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 .

I get my 4 year old daughter all bundled up to go slay the fish out on Tetonka this morning. Nice and cool out, couldn't ask for better weather to sit out on the boat and have daddy daughter time. Wife at work, sons in school. Ahhhh.

Drop the boat in, park the truck. Turn the key - dead friggin battery. Go to my truck to get my jumper cables, they are not in there, I cleaned my truck out after my Mille Lacs trip.

I think now that i'm back home, I will make a drink or 6 and watch sports center all afternoon.

At least the Vikings won yesterday smile.gif

Hey, Bunt2k, an old guy told me before I even bought my boat that i would want to keep a sall battery charger on my boat for the cranking battery. He said the lower RPMs wont be enough to keep it charged and that when i garage the boat plug it in with the on-board deep cycle charger. I do it but didnt know he had a point. Told me to just get 1 of those small trickle chargers the shuts off when the charge is full. guess he was right. still to bad it had to happen when you were on the lake! well better luck next time. talk to ya later...... Todd confused.gif

It was totally my stupidity. Forgot I had the kids out on it on Labor day, live wells running, GPS, graph, and radio on for 12 hours without the motor going. Pulled it in, and never thought about it.

I always have it charged up, cept for this one time... in a daze, only had one cup of my daily pot of coffee in me. Didnt even dawn on me. Silly thing is, I have 2 other batteries in the boat for the trolling motor, I could have just swapped. lol. Thought about pull start, then I realized, that aint going to happen on a 4-stroke 150. I'm not popeye with a can of spinach. Dont think it even has that option blush.gif

Oh well, I guess someone didnt want me to hammer the eyes today on Tetonka. Theres always next Monday morning. smile.gif

Moss, what a head case. Not a team player. More of a cancer if you ask me. Lets see if NE can survive the year.

MD, come on. Moss has never had a coaching staff to support and lead him. In previous experiences, he was coaching the coach. Not how it should have been. The coaching staff at NE should be the right crew for the job, I hope, because I would really like to see him do well.

You may be right T.O., but MD has a point, there was too much individualism there, not what it takes to gel as a team. To him it was just him & the quarterback. He was best when Chris Carter had mentored him & kept him humble, once he left I think he thought he was all it. I wouldn't want to work with someone like that. You gotta look out for each other. He will be humbled again one day...maybe with age.

L2f By the way, sorry to hear of you're troubles Bunt2k, been there, done that, & the next week, calm evening, starting to work the shoreline & the prop fell off the bow mount. Both of these on Tetonka. confused.gif

I agree Muddog, to much of a hotdog for me. He is a great player but, all the other things he does on the field and being a player only for himself, forget it.

If I owned a team I would lose the season before I would sign Randy.

bunt2k, I believe we have all had some of those days and no, they are not fun and can sure ruin a day on the lake.

Exactly what the Vikings did! I am not a big fan of Randy either but how can you trade pure talent like that. You guys are also fooling yourselves if you think Randy is the only one in the NFL with the same attitude. How many times have you heard I want to be traded to a winning team. Look at Kevin Garnett in that position. He was on TV many times talking about guns and bombs. He also stated many times that for the good of him he should be traded to a winning team. Everyone thought he was a angel and a role model. Any beter than Moss, I don't think so! I think the Vikings could be 60 catholic school boys from Minnesota and you guys would still find something to complain about. Randy is the real deal whether you like it or not. Show me another player that had stats that were even remotely close to his. smirk.gif Sorry to hijack this thread.

I do miss the flashiness of a player like Moss on our team....But then again, we now have Adrian.

I quit watching the T-wolves when they got rid of all there good guards and kept that Hudson. He had one good game the year before after missing 70% of the year with a injury. So they keep him? confused.gif The team did start going down hill when M Sealy (?) died.

That's what a DVR is for. Games go by much faster with it.

      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.
