      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 .

Has anyone caught anything out of this small lake? I tried fishing several times this year and the only thing caught was a snagged crappie minnow. It's also a very difficult lake to fish as there isn't much access although you could carry in a canoe or float.

It doesn't look like it has anything? No fish, not even bullheads? Maybe the lake was reclaimed and never re-stocked?

Yeah it is. It's difficult to fish but I haven't seen any fish at all either. I think it's empty aside maybe minnows. I dont even think there are bullheads in it.

The Eagan fishing guide report it has having blue gill, bullheads & bass. But I have caught none. But then I don't think that guide is accurate either. confused.gif

I am thinking the lake was reclaimed at some point and never restocked...

Years ago it used to be a DNR walleye rearing pond. In the 90's we carried a boat in and caught some crappies.It's been quite a few years since I've been there so I don't know if there are any fish in there or not. To many ponds and not enough time. I have found some really nice ponds with quality fish.

Andy, I gaze at this pond & drift out of my lane every time we exit 35E to hit Target. I've wondered the same thing. It's on my list of canoe-worthy places to try, but it's pretty far down. And what is this Eagan fishing guide you speak of? I've been to their web site, didn't know there was another resouce that I'm missing!

I thought of canoeing or tubing it several times to see if I can catch a fish. But trying to fish from shore has turned up nothing for me on several visits which has stopped me from bringing the canoe.

On the guides there is only the Eagan website one and there is this little guide booklet they give out at the local stores where you can buy a fishing license.

Back in the early '90's I used to live in Eagan at the Cinnamon Ridge apartments right down Cliff Rd from here and one night I saw a guy come in with a large bucket chock full of Crappies and sunnies... and they were ALL HUGE!! He told me where to go and I did and man was I in shock!! The fish were absolutely huge (Sunnies only) they all had black spots on them from living in those weeds I'd assume?? I only went there a few times and did the catch and release thing... boy was it fun! I went back in 2001 and tried again in the spring and not one bite! I figured it was either over fished or winter kill that did that sweet spot in. Memories.....

Thanks Andy, I'll ask around & see if I can dig one up. And I'll try that pond sometime, too. What's an hour to waste when one might find a good, private fishing hole?

      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

      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!
