      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 .

Ok, so I know that the last thing on most folks mind is a summer fishing trip, but my brother and I are trying to finally plan a BWCA trip togther. 4 days have been set aside the first week of June, and we're looking at going into Agnes/Boulder Bay/Tiger Bay area. Plan on being at Nina Moose entry at dawn.

I've gone back into the archives here and read everything, but wondered if anyone has been there the last couple years. Any info would be appreciated. We may have a group of up to 6 total.

Favorite campsites, paddling/route info, general fishing info for that time of year. Noone in the group has ever been on this route, and from what i can tell they aren't the best group of anglers (not that I am, but this group spent 6 days fishing in Quetico the first week of June last year and did not catch a single walleye. I would imagine you'd have to try really hard to do that blush.gif)

Also, is it worth it to try and take in a portable locator at that time of year? I am thinking i will take in a handheld gps for sure.

Thanks.....OK, its back to 'if its brown its down" cool.gif

It's been more than a couple of years (maybe five or six) but have been through there with a large group (kids included). It's an intermediate route - from Agnes to Lac LaCroix several short portages. There is one campsite almost straight across from the last portage onto LaCroix, and another down the shoreline towards the east (again on the far shoreline) that are both good, especially for large parties. Mostly northerns and bass in this part of the lake. That early, however, could be walleyes scattered throughout. They'll be traveling from spawning areas. Don't think a depth finder would be a necessity that time of year - I'd troll shorelines and points until I found some concentrations. Lots of photo opportunities on that part of the lake as well. Good luck!

chadwick,

Funny thing, just before i saw your post I had read your trip report and a couple more from prior years on there. I'd like to hear a bit more about the route and the sites on both Agnes and LLC if you wouldnt mind. Mail me at cedland99 at hotmail if you'd be willing to.

Obviously this is a short 4 day trip, our plan is to be at a site on either agnes, boulder or tiger bay by noon. We'd be traveling light, single portaging, and leaving the entry at first light. The group (with the possible exception of me grin.gif) are pretty strong paddlers. Is it realistic to get to Tiger by noon if need be?

I'm an 'eye guy also, sounds like this area is OK for eye's but more pike/smallie water. I'll have 2.5 days to figure them out.

Thanks chadwick and finnbay, appreciate it!

      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
