      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 .

Just got back from a 5 day stint up on Cass.... the ice is sitting around 12", but there is a ton of slush on top! It takes little to get a wheeler stuck and I almost got my long track snowmobile stuck towing my portable stuck in a pretty big slush pocket. This was in Allen's bay, I did not venture on to the big lake. So I can't say whether it's better there or not. My neighbor had his wheeeler stuck for close to 40 minutes in a big pocket.

Fishing is/was pretty slow. Only a few short walleye and a ton of small perch were caught. I did not get out as many times as I planned, nor did I try as many areas as usual, but I have had neighbors out each of those days. I'm not sure if it's the darkness under the ice or what... I probably should've tired through the day as opposed to the morning and evening times. A friend of mine called and said they were having some luck on Pike Bay... not what they were hoping for, but a few keeper walleye and a half dozen 10" or so perch. They said the going was tough due to the slush also. Another friend fished Pike Bay on Sunday for perch and did not find any keepers in a 3 hour period and proceeded to go to Winnie, where they did minimally better. They managed a few keepers, but nothing to report home about.

Spent a morning sprearing in a friends darkhouse on a neighboring lake. As usual we had a great time! A 30", 27" and a 26" were taken. Many others seen, a lot of bass and some respectable sunnies to boot. A guy would do well to prod around in some of those hidden small lakes in the Chippewa forest. A lot of slush was even noted on this particular 120 acre lake. Snowmobiles are your best option. Just make sure you do not park anywhere close to a slush pocket and you will be fine.

Good Luck!

Just back from the trip up. Cut it a day short because if the terrible ice on the area lakes.

I mean we did catch a few fish when we went out but it just sucks out there right now. Got wheeler stuck alot and was just horrible to move around in. I had hoped to have a permant out already but that was not going to happen right now.

I hope this warmup melts that top snow layer or the ice out this spring will be super early, because it is not making much for ice with that crap at all.

Pray for something because it plain is to much work to fish right now. frown.gif

      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
