      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 .

Is that the tourney put on by the SW MN fishing club? I did not know it is a memorial. That's pretty cool, though.

Personally, I will not be there. I'll be driving home from the twin cities. Good luck to ya, Bill.

it's getting pretty close to full..50 boats max due to the dnr permit fee..u can send your registration fee to South West Minnesota Fishing Club/P.O. Box 4/Worthinton, MN 56187 or if you have any questions call 507-360-3973 or 507-360-8565 and leave a message..also the tourny will start at 7:30 now instead of 7:00 because of dnr regulations

Should be a good tourney! Hopefully the fish will cooperate! The Southwest Minnesota Fishing Club does a good job. This tournament is a great way to remember and honor a fellow fisherman who passed away at a young age.

Sounds like it is going to be a good turnout. I missed the Mini tournament last weekend (doesn't sound like I missed much) due to a wedding. Now missing this tournament due to work. Should be good fishing though... I have been into them in several places. I am also hearing of some monsters being caught. The old Bow and shot gun are going to have to wait another month or so! grin.gif

If I recall there were 9 boats that weighed eyes, a few hogs around the 9 pound mark hit the scale. I'm not from the area so I cant remeber the names of who won, but they did it with one fish that was 28 inches. There sure are some nice fish in that lake. Gotta give thanks to my partner for putting us in the money. I will definately be back for next years tourney and maybe a little more prepared. The club does a great job with this, one of the more relaxed and organized events Ive seen.

Here is a photo of the 27 incher that we had to release during the tournament because we already had our one fish over 20 inches which was 22in. The fish caught up on Sarah were plump and healthy. Should be a great lake this fall. [image]RyanHunt27inchWalleye.jpg[/image]

The winners of the tourney were Terry and Scott Langland from Worthington,Mn. Terry told me they had one fish that was 29" and weighed 9.25 lb. They caught it trolling. He said Travis Frazee and partner from Worthington had one fish that weighed 9lb. to take second place. They caught that one casting shoreline.

Did you get in the money with that 22" fish idratherbefishing? Too bad you didn't catch mama first. She certainly does look like a Sarah walleye though.

we came in 6th with one fish at 4.20 lbs. It is too bad we didn't catch the bigger one first but oh well, we had a good time! The SW MN Fishing Club puts on a great event and it was sure a nice way to remember the young man who passed away this summer. His family was all there at the weigh in and they presented a beautiful traveling trophy made by one of the family members to the winning team.

Well ya he did put me onto a nice fish, but he was the one that secured our spot in the weigh in so I have to give him credit for that, the Southwest Club does do a great job and I will definately be back next year, might drag the boat down for a spare though, never know when you might need a spare boat, lol

      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.
    • TNFL
      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

      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!
