      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 .

Just as important as cool nights is cool day time temperatures. That hasn't happened hardly at all for a few weeks now. The bite will be sporadic (i.e. some solid reports and others not-so-solid) until Halloween. Some of the best river fishing is during and after deer season. With that in mind, I haven't heard anything "big-time" going on.

I'm heading to the Blue Earth tomarrow. With this wind, I think I'll try my waders.

I'll let you know how do. I hope I can remember how to put live bait on a hook.

Well I made it out before the mid morning rain. Biggest fish was a 19.5 eye.

Tom M, pick off this Eye, on a 1/4oz jig tiped with a fat head. He thought for sure it was a Catfish, cuz Walleye just don't fight that hard. grin.gif

Those river 'eyes always seem to have a brighter white tip than those from a lake. Great photo.

I went out yesterday evening for a couple hours. I tossed a Mr Twister backed with a chunk of crawler. On my 3rd cast got one. Then never landed anything after that, just a couple strikes. So I packed er up and got out before dark. I seen a few deer on the river bank, not to far from me, that was cool to watch. I will try again tonight if its not raining. I think the water temps need to drop about 10 degrees or more for the hot bite.

With all this talk about the pic, I thought maybe I'll add something.

If you look over his left shoulder you can see shallow fast moving water that is being deflected around the bend in the river and over to the far bank. Near his right elbow you can see an eddy, slow moving water that is heading up stream. Near his right elbow is where this Walleye took his bait.

The MN, Blue Earth and Le Sueur rivers are all great systems. Some of the better areas to target are bends in the river with ample presence of current seams and/or eddies. Other great locations to look for are feeder creeks or streams that have "fresh" water flowing into the main river. Baitfish will congregate in these types of areas and so will the 'eyes.

      Wasn't sure, but I found it. looked like  you were cooking something on the grill.

      We were out near Taylors.  Couple boats and us and a pontoon and a pleasure boat cut right between us "sight seeing".  Blows my mind how they cut right between boats that are fairly close to each other fishing an area and cruise right through without a care in the world!  Del, I thought last year you figured out which place I had?

      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.

      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
