      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 .

Do you carry Slender spoons?

I'd like to get some and I always stop at your store to get minnows anyways when I get to Ely.

From the reports I'm getting, the 4 wheeler may not work.

I'm taking a test spin 7:30 in the morning with a snow machine and will let you know what I encounter.

One person found a lot of slush and 4 inches of ice on Burntside yesterday, so the fables of 10-12 inches of ice all over are just that, fables.

Another had fished Found lake off the Moose chain, same thing, 4 inches of ice and lottsa slush.

Jim, anyone who says there's 10-12 inches of ice ALL OVER Bside is, as you say, telling tales. But nor is the four inches of ice and lots of slush a universal Bside ice report, either.

I'll be testing out my tuned-up auger off Van Vac sometime tomorrow and will give an updated report just for that area.

There was 8-10 inches of strong ice in all the spots on Van Vac Bay I drilled just before we got that big Christmas dump of snow, and we'll see if it's been cold enough since the recent three-day melt to tighten up the wet snow/slush.

The sheltered bays that froze early and took lots and lots of snow just plain suck when it comes to ice/slush conditions, while many of the more open areas were better off.

But this weekend will tell. I'll not only be fishing. I'll be tooling around looking at different ice conditions, as I'm sure will be JustinG, G.O. and a bunch of other folks.

More Bside ice reports to come! grin.gif

Thanks, ST. I appreciate the info and offer. I found some smaller Slender Spoons in town here. Tried them on a stocked rainbow trout lake this morning. Looked good in the water but didn't hook anything. Nothing else did either so I can't complain.

6 more days and I get to spend a 3 day wknd fishing Burntside!

Great Outdoors, was wondering if by chance you are attending the Bash this year. My father inlaw, Don Sandstrom, say's he knows you well. If not, I will make sure to stop by either this winter or summer for certain to introduce myself. My son and I will be at the Bash. Hope to see you there. BC

Big Country,

Donny stops in the store quite often in the summer, haven't seen him since, maybe late September?????? How's he doing?

I'll be at the store the day of the Bash. Will try to shut down by 1 or 2, then run home, grab the snowmobile, then zoom over to Bash HQ for some PR work and a few beers.

Very cool. Hope to share a few with you. Don's doing great. He ocassionally goes to the cabin in the winter. My son, buddy from the cities, and myself will be staying at his place on Clear Lake for the Bash weekend. I helped him move some stuff the other day and mentioned you on this site. He said hello. Hopefully we will see you there. I will ask Mr. Foss to point you out to me. I have visited your place in the summer, so I might recognize you anyway. See ya at the Bash. BC

      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

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.
