      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 .

FLake weed harvester eliminated

I heard that they are not going to run the weed harvester next summer on FLake. Hopefully we don't have another summer like last year with no rain and hot temps. Any thoughts, good or bad?

I would say good. It made the lake very difficult to fish at times. Weed lines would disappear, floating weeds would make working any kind of topwater miserable...I say shut it down!!

Baaad! People are not going to be happy with the weed growth in the lake this next summer! Goood! It may bring to light that each homeowner around the shoreline doesn't need to have perfectly manicured lawn right to the waters edge. Funny the lake association members are up in arms about the weeds that encroached on the recreation that they have on the lake this summer but each one rteally likes the lawn that they have right to the waters edge. I am all for the harvester being put on the shelf for a year because untill the people that live on the lake realize that they are the ones degrading the water quality and the experience that they so enjoy they won't do anything about it! My parents are included in this rant! Funny how you don't do anything to help untill it is too late! There is a FL lake asociation that is newly formed as of this year to address some of these issues but untill they can get the members and backing they need it is going to just keep going south. Let the weed harvester rest, it is not the lakes fault it is the people around the lake. What can you do? Join the lake association and give them the input that you as a sportsperson desires! We can all do our part! Ice cleanup is a great start. We had our first annual last year and it was a rousing success. You don't have to own lakeshore to be apart of the association! Education is what we need here but there are alot of unwilling people that live along the lake that need to hear this. So, in my rant, I say put the harvester away, because unless it interferes with the local lake dwelling customs, NOTHING, will change. You all can make a difference!

Setterguy, will do! We had a small FM showing last year but a great showing for people in the community! Keep looking in the paper for the lake association meetings. The people that are on the board are pretty approachable and very interested in keeping up the health of the lake. I plan on being out there again and cleaning so the more hands the easier the work!

      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.

      There was a musky tourney last weekend, at spring bay.  Some club deal.   I think that might have contributed to the issue.   Normally I am one of few boats out on wakemup fishing walleye.   Like count on fingers of one hand.
