      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 .

Hey guys,

Anyone use Lone Wolf tree stands or their climbing sicks? How do you like them?

Other question is about Montana buck or doe decoy....anyone use these? I've read the reviews on Cabelas website and most seem to think they work well but durability is an issue.

Can anyone help?

I gave 2 lone wolfs and love both! I have the middle sized hang-on, perfect in ever respect plus I have the alpha sit and climb, another exceptional stand but the seat is a wee bit small but its still good enough to sit in for a long sit. I usually stand for about 5 minuts every half hour to hour and I am good to go for all day if I choose. Sorry but I don't know anything about decoys since I don;t use them. I carry enough gear anyways, I don't want to have to worry about all the safety too.

The lone wolf treestands are the best that you can buy, You really do get what you pay for. The best stand on the market hands down.

I also have a LW stand. I have the Alpha. I bought it last year and its been fantastic for me. My buddy bought one too. He's got the sticks, I don't. Not for any reason other than I already use the Bucksteps.

My son uses only LW stands and after i had own stolen this past archery season, I will be replacing it with another LW. Many climbers will get the job done and they all work. From my experience, LW makes a very nice stand and yes they are probably the highest priced on the market.

I don't have any experience with the LW stands, but I do with the Montana decoys. The first time I had a deer come into my decoys using one of these, the animal totally froze up and eventually bolted. I couldn't figure out why until I went down later to "relieve" myself, and in walking back to my stand, my decoy caught my attention and almost made me "relieve" myself again in my pants!! The thing was way to pale or light colored, looked like a ghost deer or something like that. My home remedy was to use some brown rit clothing dye and tone it down a little bit. Now it looks very good, and I haven't had that problem again. I am not sure if they have changed this at the factory or not, but just a concern of mine.

      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
