      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 .

Rogers man passed on

I heard a story on the news last night regarding a individual from Rogers that had his truck falls through the ice on Leech lake over the weekend. He made it out of the water, but died walking back in the cold.

Keep his family in your prayers.

I always tell myself if I fall in there is no way im not making it out and back home, but I think your body just shuts down. No matter how strong of a will you have you can't defy nature. May the Lord be with him and his family.

Scared me for a minute when I read that. My friends Dad was going ice fishing on Leech last weekend. Found the story and the names don't match up. Very unfortunate for the family that lost him

Please keep him and his family in all your prayers. Look at every time we all go out on the ice and come home safe. Life is very fragile and it can be gone in a second without any notice. God be with his family.

Something I do EVERY time I am out. Soon after I get settled into my portable, with the heat on, and all in place. I find a moment (usualy while having my cig.) to thank god for the opertunity to be here taking in all that mother nature has to offer. I am glad to be able to be there, and I know that there are so many that are not as fortunate. I pray for god to help that family to overcome their loss. I pray nobody else will find the same fate. Be carefull everyone.

Fishsystem, you nailed that one. I will take a moment to thank the man for it all myself. R.I.P fisherman.

Just an idea, what would all you FM'ers think of getting a little fishing contest together and all proceeds going to this man's family. Again, just an idea, but we could probably get some local businesses to donate a few prizes to raffel off, charge a small fee, and see if we can get something together for the family?????? Again, just an idea, if anyone wants to get this together please let me know, this would be fishing which we do anyway, but doing it for a good reason?????? Let me know, it probably wouldnt be hard to do this.

      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
