      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 .

All,

so it looks as though we will be coming up this weekend. Plans right now are to stay on hinsdale Island or McKinley campground. Here is my issue. Neither place will have electricity. Are there any places where I can charge my trolling battery for a few hours? Are there any restaraunts i can drive my boat to and charge up while we eat? We will be there for a few days and I don't really want to try fishing without my trolling motor. Any help would be great!

I have charged my trolling motor batteries at the casino for a couple of hours while we ate and played a few hands of blackjack, but beware that can be some expensive electricity!

Most batteries takes several hours to recharge. You'd also use quite a bit of gas going from Hinsdale to the Casino and back. Why not just take an extra battery with you?

The extra battery is a great idea. here is another. A couple of years ago I took my boys camping on hinsdale and wanted to make sure that if a switch was left on in my boat that I could still get the motor started. I googled "solar battery chargers" and was surprised how cheap they were, around $40. The charger clips on to my battery and lays on my dash. Now I use the charger to keep the batteries fresh on long days of fishing. It also came with a cig lighter adapter so you can backcharge you car battery in the same way.

Also if you are at Mckinley, Fortune bay is not far and has plenty of electric on the docks.

When we camped at Mckinley there is power outside the shower house. We used to pull the battery and charge it there. Good Luck

You could also check at Shamrock Marina which is very close to Hinsdale. They may be willing to let you charge your batteries if you have your own charger.....?

Thanks for all your help guys...I didn't end up needing the trolling motor for more than 4 hours. We stayed At McKinley Park. Fished all day on Saturday and did very well. Caught a few footballs that nearly tore off my arm. Thanks for all the help!
