      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 .

Looks like ice fishing transportation but the twine around the headlight suggests the thing is used to spread bales of hay or straw, but for what. Not many livestock on a lake and then I see bales on the lake. If you've ever had horses or cattle you'll note that there were a lot of bales by the amount of twine. Next question is whats that contraption on the back? A self mounted augering system which leads back to ice transportation but again why the twine? Snowmobiles in the background. Hmm, bales for a snowmobile race track, but you'd leave the twine on.

I'm going to guess and say the thing on the back is for loading or cutting ice blocks and the bales are for putting the ice up as an insulator.

I found this pic and just fell in love with it.. my grandpa had almost the same thing, and i remember spending lots of time in it, sleeping cooking and even a portable potty too..I was lucky enough to see so much cause each year my grandpa would pick a new place.. He used to work for Pabst in milw.. so we been places like yellow knife, white horse, nome, prince Edward island, Churchill, all over alasaka and Ca and the us.. Then my grandpa opa as we called him being we are from Germany, went into Fishing shows on TV and did the pro circuit all over.. Thats it... So i thought i would share the photo with you that i found. All it said with the pic is...

Ice Fishing shacks and people (Contact Us Please) the landscape of the frozen water on Lake Manitoba and Lake Winnipeg. Come on out and throw in your hook. Brave the cold or stay cozy warm in a friends fishing shack. A bombadier like this can often be seen on the southern shores of Lake Manitoba as they are still used in commercial fishing operations.

Spent some duck seasons at Delta Marsh on the south end of Lake Manitoba and saw these sitting in many yards. Also saw one on display at the Smithsonian in Washington D.C.

      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?

      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!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.
