      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 .

Garbage Rant

Being out on Buffalo a few times a week I can't help but notice all the garbage all over the ice. I would just like to see everyone pick up after themselves a little bit better. Its no different than throwing your garbage over the side of the boat. I think most of the guys on this site have enough respect for our lakes not to do this, its just too bad the same can't be said for everyone. Maybe we need to start an "adopt a lake" at the end of the ice fishing season just to clean up everyones mess.....

I usually pick up a small shopping bag full of [PoorWordUsage] every time I go out on buffalo. It really ticks me off that people are more respectful of the water they are fishing out of but I wont let it sit there if I see it.

I hear ya. I had once found an oil filter used, with quarts re-filled with used motor oil left out there. Need less to say I took them with me, but couldn't do anything about the 1/2 quart that was spilled onto the ice. I think a black eye might be a good solution for whoever that was! Then the dnr can fine 'em after that! Thanks for keepin it clean, those of us who do, even when it isn't our trash we are picking up. Takes a man to pick up what a mouse leaves behind.

Someone should give local CO Rick Reller a call and let him know the skinny on this.Wright County Sheriff deputy Joel Mackereth might be one to call, as well.He is a recreation enforcement deputy.

This has not only been a problem on Buffalo but all kinds of lakes in Wright County that I've been to. BeeBee, Pelican, Indy...The people that are littering need a hefty fine to remind them that it is unnecessary and ridiculous. How hard is it to keep you trash in your house or use a plastic bag? Don't be a slob, it's not that hard. Without getting into a confrontation, lets all try and keep these "slobs" accountable if they are caught in the act

They don't look nice but they are biodegradable so I don't care much about that. It is the pastic, bottles, and garbage and even cig buts that really gets me.

My reply to call those cops is because of the find of the oil filter, and refilled oil bottles.That is the stuff once it leaks into the water, that really hurts the lake.Not that the other garbage isn't aggravating enough by itself.

I wish some people would just take responsibility and pick up after themselves. What is so hard about bring off the lake what you took on. I'd love to call the cops on someone for doing that but it'd never work.

      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

      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!
