      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 .

10 more hours of work and we're headed back to the sleeper at Morris. I'm at 27' right now and looking for the current report. If I need to move around I'll have the 6800 with me this time.

Last Sat I had an amazing day in the 26-27' range. I was away from the people so that is where I would head. As mentioned from 9-12 it was great then it slowed but I was still marking fish but they were smaller saugers. But it was probably the best bite I have had on LOW in years. I realize last sat to this week is a big time change but I would think the bite should stil be pretty strong for you.

Just came back from the lake last night. We fished the perm in 27fow and didn't produce like the week before. Came home with 6 keeper. I did try moving deeper to 30fow saturday afternoon with no results. Noticed houses moving in pretty steady yesterday. Looks like a new village setting up west of the road on the Y. LakeView started moving houses there too. Haven't heard of any great results yet. I'll stay with my location for now and move with the portable on Wed/Thurs to try and find the fish. Pretty slow across the whole lake this weekend. We'll have to wait it out for now.

I dunno about that "slow across the whole lake" comment? Surprised you mentioned in another post of yours saying it's been slow for 2 weeks??

Saturday I fished mid-depth rock/rubble and had the best action I've had in all my trips since December 1, alot of smallish fishes though! Yesterday's evening trip on a 14 foot sand/gravel break saw steady action for dandy fish from 3 till all the way dark and not but 1 hut within 3/4's of a mile from me.

It's a BIG pond and them fishes are out there and catchable on a few different types of locations these days.

Hey WhiskeyPete,

We are neighbors (sort of) glad to have you here.

There were large areas where fishing has been slow lately.

I wont pretend to have any reasons why. But what Fisky

said rings real true when times get tough. Having a

little bit different area in your bag can be huge.

My other post talks about moving shallow at the end of

the day. This isnt new information and as I looked along

the 12 foot contour line I didnt see 30 fish houses for

as far as I could see in either direction and the fish

were just nuts!

Some of our group picked away at fish all day and did

all right in the deeper water (22 feet) but we didnt

have much to show for the Friday fishing effort until we

moved shallow.

Whether it's a bit of gravel or rock pile or 5 miles of

shoreline the fish are biting some where. On those days

when the fish just wont bite, moving to your secret spot

will accomplish 2 things. 1). Maybe you will get into em

good. 2) Your day will be used up trying to better your

catch whether you do or dont.

Good luck next time out friend. You Red Lake Falls boys

know how to fish, you will figure it out.

I'm not saying there's NO fish being caught out there, just one of those years I've had where moving is the key. I haven't given up on LOW or Morris, just need to more around a bit more than I'd like. LakeView is one place that will keep me coming back. Thanks to Al and Michelle!

Thanks for the reports.

Well, we're leaving in the morning again for Morris Point. I've heard of people catchin' steady in 32-34' and still having a good morning bite at 17-20'. I'm loaded up and ready to go again. Just looking for the most recent reports.

      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.

      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.

      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.
