      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 .

Launch at Beach House in Bayport

Recommended Posts

Just getting ready for the 9/22 River Rat tournament, and I figure it will be hectic at Beanies that morning. Looking through the posts I saw a few of you launch at "Beach House". Can you give me some information such as directions. I know where it is on the river, but I wonder where you turn off 95. Also what are the fees, and can you launch early enough to make the tourney. I guess I also need to know the parking situation and if it is open to the public. Thanks for all replies.

If you are heading north into Bayport from I-94, turn right before you hit Woody's Bar. Holiday gas station is across the street and north about 1/2 block. Then head east about 3 blocks and you'll pull into the marina.

There is a box you drop your money into so you can come and go as you please.

Weekdays are $10

Weekends are $20

I might have missed a few details but that is the bread & butter of it. Real nice launch!

Oakdalefmr..you can get to the beachouse launch easy enough.You turn on central ave off 95,left coming from hwy36 or right coming off hwy 94.Head into the bayport park and when your just about to the end of the road the Beachouse is on the left.Its about a twenty minute ride by boat down to beanies,and most of that is the Hudson no wake.Its ten bucks to launch there if you get a spot in the lot to park.There are around 8 or 9 spots,there is a paybox at the launch that you use.There is also a pay launch in Hudson,bout the same price but more spots to park.Hope this helps...Hanson is correct on the price at Beachouse on weekends,its 20bucks on weekends if you get there after 9am.10 bucks before 9.

Thanks for the information. I thought it might be a nice spot to launch for the river rat tourney to be out of the crowds.

Because of the no wake, do you think it would be quicker for him to launch near Afton? I think its Windmill marina down that way?

Decided I would launch out of Beanies. I was there on Saturday and only about 10 rigs were there. Nice ramp and good people so I will stick with what I know. Pre-fishing was difficult on Saturday with the south wind. Thanks for all of the replies. Always nice to know there are other options.

      See you next year, we are pulling out this week and it sounds like you were only up for the weekend.   Sorry I didn't quite have the nerve to climb the steps and introduce myself.   I guess I am not big on just showing up at the door.

      Lester River-McQuade area.   Last time out we found bait and Lake Trout 100-120'  taken off downriggers and stacked lines over 145-175' of water.  That can change day to day so keep an eye on the sonar.   Silver Flasher w/Fly, Water Mellon, Monkey Puke, Silver w/green/blue crushed ice spoons working well for us.  Last 2 times out were during midday and bright skies trolling around 2 MPH.   If you put in at Rice's Point bring rubber boots and watch your step as the beginning of the dock is under water.

      So all 3 banks are blowing fuses with the charger outside the boat hooked to a battery with nothing else connected to it?   Try a different battery.  If your still blowing fuses I wouldn't use the charger.

      Labor day will be a busy weekend.  If you are around after the weekend, Maybe we can grab a beer.  I was going to say the landing, but maybe something else....WBL?

      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.
