      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 now have "Gus" the Dog.

In the past I've had: Bella, Molly, Woody, Bell, and Flair.

If I ever get a female black lab I'll name it Pearl. I like the names Earl and Ed or Eddy (female), too, as well as the traditional names Duke, Beau, Zeus, etc. I think male dogs are easier to name.

I have a buddy who comes from a big family and he always names his dogs after a brother, sister or relative. I find that just humorous.

I prefer the more non-traditional names. I personalize each dogs registered name and pull something out of that name for there call name.

Labs I've had:

Corks

Aggie

Suzie

Scooter

Breeze

Mako

Mess

Chug

Hobo

Nora

Cash

Had a shorthair 'Baron'

and a Cocker 'Chaser'

Their pedigree names that co-incide with the call names will many times bring a chuckle...

Good Luck!

My current dog is named Zeus. Thought about naming him Elvis, but decided against it. The kids wanted Nemo, but there was absolutely no way.

Childhood dogs were Copper and Duke

There is a short story by Bob Cary, I think in "The Portages Grow Longer," where much to his dismay Bob's wife buys a non-hunting type dog. He contemplates trying to train it, and whether it has any natural instinct left. A friend witnesses a strange act by the dog (with a butterfly?). The friend proclaims, "That dog is nuts, it'll never hunt."

Bob names the dog "Nuts of Neverhunt."

Funny name would be Permission. That way when you see a sign that says No Hunting witout Permission you're covered.

Just kidding. Our 4 dogs are named Titus, Grace, Brownie, and Gabby! I had a long lived Shepard once named Kama. It means wished for.

Fun question! My current dog is named Scout, from my favorite book "To Kill a Mockingbird". We are thinking about adding to the family this spring and we have already begun the name search. We could go with Jem, Scouts brother in the book, or Boo as in Boo Radley. Atticus may be too long. Any suggestions - will most likely be a black lab. Names of past dogs:

Trapper

Bo (as in Bocephus)

Sampson (Sam)

Samtu (Sam2)

I need help too you guys!!! I am getting a female springer this week. My first hunting dog. I was thinking of Jasmine. But I am still undecided. I would like something that is unique. Something that has to do with hunting, or the outdoors. Any help?

I almost named my dog Sampson. I wanted to name my dog Beavis, but my wife wouldn't let me. I've always thought Ragnar would be a good name for a hunting dog. Or if you want to go deep into Norse mythology, Fenris would also be a good name...

      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.
