      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 .

FYI -- my co worker got back from hunting today, he was around Hill City I thik somewhere south of Grand Rapids. He said the wood ticks are in full force, picked no less than 100 off his clothing, and driving back last night, his knee was hurting so he pulled over, to his amazement tick was burrowed right in, said he had no matches or lighter (non smoker) so he had to use the knife and some rubbing alcohol, pretty nasty hole in his knee. Oh and he shot 2 deer, a button buck and "muley looking" 4 pointer. His were the only deer taken sat-mon out of 4 people, sounds like there will only a handful of other deer seen by his group.

That's weird. Didn't see such a thing in the Hibbing area. Find it hard to believe they'd be active with the cold nights.

thats what we all said, I thought they were done at first frost, thought was strange, and aren't they dormant by now? who knows I guess, the little blood suckers have figured out there are hunters out in November.

They were thick East of Fort Ripley. Especially if you were walking in the thick swampy areas with grass. Plus they are so dang small that you cant hardly see them. The deer that we shot were covered with them.

I picked one off on Sunday afternoon. I'm in area 175 on the Iron Range. First time I've ever had one during deer season.

I picked off two as well after a walk on Sunday.

Here's a story. A few years back remember when opener was butt cold? I took a nice 8 pointer that last weekend of the season in Zone 1, snow had been on the ground for a few weeks by then I think, but anyway, it was covered with ticks! And I mean covered. The second day of hanging in the garage I went out to start processing the deer and its hide was literally moving there were so many ticks on it! Without their blood supply they were coming off of it by the hundreds. It was horrible. I got that thing skinned and the hide disposed of as quick as I could, then I got the propane torch fired up and started killing all the ticks running around on the garage floor in a 10 foot circle, and there were a lot of them! Luckily they don’t move too fast when it’s that cold, and they didn’t get far from where they fell. Point being there was snow on the ground for almost two weeks and some major below freezing temps and the little buggers were still out in full force.....

A friend was just telling me that his taxidermist told him that it takes something like 10 days of -10 degrees to kill the ticks, so he puts all his furbearers in a special deep freeze at -30 for two weeks (or something like that, I forget the exact numbers) before he works on them. He thaws the hides then shakes the ticks off like shaking a rug outside....

I know being on a warm animal in those conditions is different that being out in the woods on some grass blade waiting for dinner to walk by, but still, I thought that was pretty impressive. They are tough little buggers.

So, I am not surprised to find a few running around this year, it hasn't been that cold yet.....

Wow. No wonder I've still been finding them on the dog... I figured a night with temps in the teens would've gotten rid of them but apparently not. Tough critters...

Yeah, I can confirm that, we were in the area north of Emily two weekends ago, and we all ended up with ticks. One had to be surgically removed, several others were partially embedded. First time I have ever encountered deer ticks like that... I have been hunting a lot around home and have had no problems at all...

      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
