      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 .

Saturday I was out on Lake Geneva trying to find some walleyes. The bait shop I stopped at was only able to offer me some shiners so I picked up a few.

I was working a rather long underwater ridge out in the middle of the lake when I began to notice some extremely light taps on my line. I was getting frustrated because I wasn't able to get a hookset and eventually decided I should check out my minnow and hook. When I realed in, to my surprise I discovered I now had two shiners on my jig. I actually caught a 3" spot-tail shiner! I couldn't believe it and I'm sure most anyone out there could here me busting a gut on that one.

Unfortunately I was unable to coax any walleyes into action even after it started to rain.

This spring I snagged a perch through the back that was the same size as the crappie minnow I was using.

while fishing last winter on LOW, dad hooked into a sauger on a jigging spoon that looked like it told the minnow it could have the day off!!!

A few winters ago I was fishing crappies on S. Center and got into a school of shiners. They looked like suspended crappies on the FL-18.

I've also caught a few golden shiners on Chisago fishing spring crappies.

We caught several shiners fishing for sunfish on Osakis a week or so ago. Happens if you're using small enough baits.

The strange thing was that I was using a 1/4oz. ball jig and a 3" shiner.

I can't tell you how many crayfish I've caught in the past years up in Vermilion. When the bite is light, there was no way I could tell the difference.

Maybe it was trying to form a new school with your shiner and got too close to your jig. wink.gif

      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
