      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 .

I've read and heard some things about Tom's Harbor that aren't very good. What is going on with that place? I saw they were holding a auction for some of the places...........is that true?

Hey Jim,

I honestly don't know what the deal is with Tom's. I think the auction was back in early September, and you had to have a $1,000 money order or something like that just to get in. I also heard something to the effect of $160,000 for a lot that's 100 feet by 40 feet. Everytime I went by there on the lake, it seemed like there was some sort of work being done on the cabins there. I'm sure soon enough all the rich playboys from the cities will show up with their jet-skis, "runabouts", and "pleasure boats"......yuck. We have enough of that already.

Hanson,

#1. Please point out in my post where I said that Cass was "my lake".

#2. Where in my post did I group togather the recreationalists and fishermen?

I'm not trying to be a jerk. Just please answer those questions. The "rich playboys" I am talking about are the people who come up every weekend and have absolutely no respect whatsoever for the lake or other users of the lake, no matter what region they are from. These are the people who will spend all afternoon out at Star Island getting completely drunk and tearing around the lake mindlessly. And that whole bit about the "stereotype", well, sadly it is true. A vast majority of the people who vacation here during the summer are from the cities. Some of them are very decent people, others not so much. It's the "other" group that annoys me. But this is just coming from a stereotyping, stuck-up local.......

MuskyTail,

I agree with you to a point o the city folk, BUT I also see a lot of people on the water that have boat licenses from out of state. These people rent, time share, or buy for what ever reason these places that are WAY to highly priced... But, we need these people here to help our communities survive. I know you never mentioned anything about that, but I'm just adding my two cents worth... I'm originally from Apple Valley and have been up in god's country for 14 years now... Yes I also agree with Hanson-- This is a major stereotype and I don't know when it will end... North Dakotan, Minnesotan, Cheesehead, and Farmers or Wine Makers from Iowa we all use these waters and we all have a different theory to what we call rest and relaxation... Hopefully people use common sense and enjoy the resource we have here...

On a side note:

The only accident or situation that I heard/saw this year on Cass was when one boat at half throttle took out another boat.. Everyone survived and one lady had a messed up shoulder/arm... Point is not bad compared to all the boats that were out there this year crazy.gifcrazy.gif

To elaborate a little bit more on what beef touched on, (the boat collision) ironically enough, I took the son-in-law of the guy who got hit out fishing that morning. We saw the guy drive past us about half an hour before the accident. And just when you thought there couldn't be any more irony, the topic we were talking about when he drove by was boating traffic/accidents. Twilight zone stuff, huh?

Oh and LABS....before you go on and on and on and on about the wonderful, blessed, all dominating Packers.....the deer hunting is depressing. I do, however, have 3 pounds of 50/50 beef-venison if we could make something outta that...

There are Bluebills showing up but I think this year we will see most of them head to the west a little.. The report coming from the NW angle on LOW is there is between 20 thousand to 40 thousand and that they are or will be heading towards Warrod instead of Baudette... I will be back out again this week looking but I know one lake last weekend had a bunch of Bills(500-2,000) on it... With this warm weather, I'm guessing we will be duck hunting up here until the last day(I think the 27th).....

      See you next year, we are pulling out this week and it sounds like you were only up for the weekend.   Sorry I didn't quite have the nerve to climb the steps and introduce myself.   I guess I am not big on just showing up at the door. 
    • Surface Tension
      Lester River-McQuade area.   Last time out we found bait and Lake Trout 100-120'  taken off downriggers and stacked lines over 145-175' of water.  That can change day to day so keep an eye on the sonar.   Silver Flasher w/Fly, Water Mellon, Monkey Puke, Silver w/green/blue crushed ice spoons working well for us.  Last 2 times out were during midday and bright skies trolling around 2 MPH.   If you put in at Rice's Point bring rubber boots and watch your step as the beginning of the dock is under water.

      So all 3 banks are blowing fuses with the charger outside the boat hooked to a battery with nothing else connected to it?   Try a different battery.  If your still blowing fuses I wouldn't use the charger.

      Labor day will be a busy weekend.  If you are around after the weekend, Maybe we can grab a beer.  I was going to say the landing, but maybe something else....WBL?

      Fuses are blowing for a reason most likely an undesirable reason. Much better solution to fix the problem than eliminating the fuse. Eventually the sort or item causing the fuse to blow will eventually make it to the wires. Just a thought, although not recommend, there is enough battery current where you can stick weld 11 gage steel with a 12 volt battery. Continued or prolonged welding (same as a short) could cause to battery to explode. Word of caution, led acid batteries are filled with sulfuric acid.

      I agree with del, used boats are more than adequate. I bought a 1990 Crestliner Sport for $5,100 in 2013. Did some floor and live well work, added co-pilot to the trolling motor, Vexilar SonarPhone connected to my iPad, and a tablet with the Navionics Boating App for GPS. Welded verses rivet hull was my desire. Tops out at 43 mph with 115hp merc 2 stroke. Handles the 4' Ottertail waves quite well. Picture of boat on Ottertail which I fish several times yearly along with other Ottertail County lakes and lakes closer to home I frequent often. At 73 its easy to launch / take-out. Look for a family owner, one that uses the boat once or twice a month the boat/motor will have limited hours of use on it. In my opinion the used boat is the only way to go.

      Here's a quote from the MinnKota digital onboard charge manual. "INLINE FUSE The output cord has an inline fuse on the RED end. The fuse serves as protection from surges and short circuits caused by a damaged charger output cable. If a fuse blows, replace it with a 30 amp ATC 32V automotive fuse. Improper battery connections will normally not cause a fuse to blow since this is handled by the internal circuitry of the charger."

      That was my son cooking up my birthday dinner!  I'm older and have more grey hair (a lot more) than dark.  Be sure to say "hello-I'm Del"  if you see me!  Will be back up for a few extra days over Labor Day.
