      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 .

If you do a lot of casting from the bow, it will be the best investment you'll ever make.

I wouldn't own a boat without one.

I have a regular seat on my front casting deck that I will be changing over to a butt pad this winter. It's a huge difference.

I agree completely with Rost. I have had a stand up pedestal in the bow now for several years. If you do a lot of casting, it is great. Be aware that you do have to have a bit more agility and ability to balance yourself than you would if you were sitting. When you get used to it, it is not a problem.

I almost exclusively fish walleyes, and wouldn't fish without a stand up seat. I wish it was even a bit taller, but I just feel more comfortable standing (with this to lean on a bit).

I always wanted to put one in my last boat but never did. When I got my new boat it was the first thing I did and wish I would have done it in my old boat earlier. I like the flexibility of being able to lower it down and sit on it or raise it up and lean against it...especially when lindy rigging because I like the feel of the line and setting the hook when standing compared to sitting.

Got one, use it all the time. Casting is an obvious application, but I also use mine when live bait rigging, watching bobbers, fishing jigs or blade baits in the river, etc. At times I move it back by my kicker and use it when pulling cranks. It really is a comfortable way to fish, I don't sit down in the boat a lot (but I lean a lot grin.gif). Get the tallest one you can (unless you're a short guy).

I also agree with perch and the rest , get one (or two) .

I use one on my bow for all applications and almost never use my regular sit down seat up there . I think you'll enjoy the set up once you use it .

Good luck & have fun !!!

I mimic PerchJerker's post. Your back will thank you. Worth every penny. For fishing walleyes I like it most because I don't get fatigued like I would sitting in a regular seat.

I have a semi bad back.. and would not be able to fish too long without a pro-pole and but seat... I am mostly a bass guy so being up as high as possible is best and having the chair to more lean against is awesome!

      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?

      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

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.
