      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 .

Strangest Thing

Recommended Posts

Paul Waldowski

Was going out tonight and turned on the power switch to my Lund Mr. Pike, no problem, light came on. As soon as I turned on the Nav lights they didn't work and the power switch light went out. I now have no power coming out of the power panel. Everything that is wired direct to the battery works just fine, fish locator, GPS, motor starts just fine...etc..

What could be the cause, short in the switch panel somewhere???

Have you checked all your fuses, including any possible in-line fuse that may be there???

Poor connection at the battery? I run into a similar problem on vehicles with corroded battery terminals. Turn the key on and everything works. Try to crank it and everything goes dead. Sometimes if you wait for a couple of minutes everything powers up again. A basic test light would be handy to start checking where the power is and where it is missing.

Just a thought.

I would have to say that you have a short in the wiring for your navigation lights and when you turned them on you blew a fuse between the battery and your master power switch. Get yourself a test light and start poking around. (pun intended!)

Paul, check the + battery terminal, there should be a small rectangular box approx 1" x 1/2" x 1/2" with a small red button. That's main battery breaker.

Otherwise call Kevin..... grin.gif

Second on the Battery term's! I am almost giving up on lead style and going to try copper! But in the end, on a boat they all get corroded. It may not be the post it self, but one of the power feeds going into post clamp down area. I had a bunch of stuff stop working on my boat and a couple of things still working. Took apart the couple of power feeds going into back side of terminal and found some were connecting and other were not (corrosion)! Cleaned them all, cleaned posts and all was working well.

On a side note, a buddy here at work had the same concern on his Lund and it turned out to be a failed cell in battery. Under load it would shut down.

But as Valve said, it sounds like a breaker! I thought pump on my tilt and trim blew a couple weeks ago, only to find out it was the little box right up from positive battery term with the breaker switch, pushed in black little switch and wall la! My major issue went away like that! Now why it blew is another story! We will find out down the road!

Valv's right here, but it might not be a breaker, depending on the year. It could be a tube looking deal inline with the battery cable within the first foot of battery cable with a spare stored in the tube right above the inline one.

      Lots of birds kept spots open and the snow covered them now. It’s dangerous if you just rush out. Take your time if you are going to Ann lake or Lori or any in that area.  This my stomping grounds and there only one lake I would fish in the area

      Fished from 0815-1230 today out from McKinley out to 26 FOW. Found about 10.75 inches good ice with snow cover varying from 2 inches up to close to a foot in the soft drifts but still not too bad for hiking while dragging the flip over. Had decent action from 0830-0930 bringing up 8 walleyes less than 12 inches long, a 12 inch perch and 2 tullibees all released. About 50-50 on set line vs glow jigging spoon both with chubs. Not sure why I couldn't connect on better quality fish. Still a nice morning with the snow lightly falling and peaks of sun. Good running into you, Cliff! Hopefully we'll cross paths again this winter.

      I may make it over to Elysian, Francis, or Tetonka this Saturday. Depends what I find on the Mississippi tomorrow afternoon. From what I have heard the ice on the backwaters around Winona and La Crosse may actually be in better shape than that around Waseca and Faribault, which is kind of odd for early ice. Usually the south-central MN lakes freeze up just a bit quicker.
    • JIvers
      I'd be surprised if there were much good ice on Bartlett this weekend--that deep water with a bit of current takes a while to freeze--but I may go out and take a look anyway tomorrow when I am up in the area getting my first ice fix of the year in. Anyone got any early ice reports for the Mississippi backwaters around Winona and Lacrosse? I'll be adding mine tomorrow night.
