      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 .

A friend was up last weekend and told me a house sunk to the roof at one end after he insisted that the resort put it out for him. i was told the bill was $4000 to get it out. Another house had the ice sag and had 2 ft of water inside. The owner was able to jack the house up and out of the water. Also a report that Dickies had 2 houses torched, not sure how much dammage was done but with all the wood in a fishhouse I would expect not too much left.

Didn't hear about the sinking houses but watched one of Dickies rentals burn New Years eve real close to my perm out of Liberty Beach, not much left. The fire Dept. showed up drilled a hole in the Ice and pumped water on it

Why isn't there a need to post where the houses sank? I would think it'd be nice to know areas of thin ice.

Was there anyone in the houses? Were they vacant? Anyone hurt? Years ago I purchase a CO2 detector and bring it with no matter who I rent from. It has gone off a couple of times over the years. I would highly recommend anyone renting a house bring a detector with them.

My feelings are that there is no need to post bad press against a resort owner. I personally know the owner and have fished with him going back 25 years. The house owner was adviced not to but the house out. The resort owners want us out as bad as we want out. They know the lake better than we do. Lets listen to their advice and heed their warnings. As far as the torched houses at Dickies I was told they were not occupied when they were set on fire.

minnbowhunter I'm not at all concerned what resort it was. The same thing could have happened to someone making their own road. I was refering to where on the lake a person should be careful, i.e. the house went in on this flat or that reef, there's a big crack at this spot... It wasn't a bash on any resort, that's for sure.

I understand your point and it is well taken. unfortunatly the info I got was 2nd hand and I don't know exactly on the lake the house was, only that it happpened on the east side. Your right, people should know if there is an area to stay clear of.

from what I heard which is also second hand is that it was along the east side out from Hunter's somewhere. So if your going out in that area just ask the resort owner about bad ice they will be more than happy to tell you.

      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
