      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 .

I have noticed quite a few houses out on the last lake on this chain of lakes from Goose. The lake I am talking about is

Robour (pronounced Rowbar)just wondering if anyone on this site has been fishing out there. I fished it alot in the summertime and caught some very nice sunnies and crappies. Fished once so far in the winter and am heading up there this saturday. Does anyone know what is going on out there??

In the words of the moderator.

"we try and keep the smaller lakes on the down low...

We (fishingminnesota.com) does'nt want to be responsible for the over harvest of a lake.

Check smaller lakes for yourself .."

Mabey I'm wrong, but would'nt this lake be considered "a smaller lake".

BYW, I do not fish this lake.

It is a small lake, and it already is overfished. Unfortuneatly, the small lakes get outed on forums like this and are easily pirated by thousands of people. In the past, I have put in a lot of time and effort to find these gems. It used to be a guy would have to write or call the DNR for lake info, go to little lakes and spend some time (sometimes fruitlessly due to things like winterkill), and even keep working a lake even though past results were worthless. In my opinion, this was the most fun part-catching fish is great, but beating the odds is a bigger rush. Now, all folks have to do is a little homework on the net, and can pretty much find a spot electronically. I love this site, but at the same time I kind of hate it.

John,

I am with you. I love talking about the techniques and equipment here, but I hate to see someone gain insight to lakes that guys like you and me put hours into finding over the years. I think every fisherman is naturally greedy, and no doubt I am. I want the bite I found to myself.

I still fish for the thrill of the chase. A joke between the group I fish with is, "We did good on that lake last weekend, so let's go somewhere else." I still live that even though I don't have as much time to really find that obscure bite as I used to.

Sorry guys if I let the cat out of the bag on this. From reading it seems some of you know where this lake is and some dont. To get there I dont know the names of the roads just know from memory what turns to take out of Cambridge. I was a rookie to this lake at the begining of summer, and it pretty much took me all summer to find certain spots on this lake know ceratin depth and drops, so I know where you guys are coming from when you find these litte lakes.0 This lake I believe is 46 acres if I remember right. I didnt make it up there this past weekend wont get back up there until Feb 23rd, In Mexico all next week fishing, golfing and relaxing. Again sorry guys about this.

It is sad we all can't enjoy these lakes because most of us are all about catch and release,I understand it just takes a couple of 'fish hogs' to ruin a good thing.John and Ray are correct,I will not post on small waters in the future,I see the error of my ways,and in no way want too have these small water gems get punished and overfished.

      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!
