      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 .

Spring Fishing With Woody's Rainy Lake Resort!

Recommended Posts

Hey Anglers!

Many customers in the past have shown interest in a chance to fish the Rainy River during the BIG RUN! The season opens March 1st through April 14th. Many anglers are aware that this is one of those times of year where you can truly land that trophy of a lifetime! What is neat about our area is that we can open water fish and ice fish the same time most years. Many of our customers throw their auger and tip-ups in the boat and do a Triple Header for Trophy Walleye, Monster Pike and a Sturgeon big enough to tow your boat. Keep in mind that while the walleye limits change on the Lower Rainy River they stay the same on the Upper Rainy River(above the dam)and Rainy Lake which is 4 walleye (one over 28') 4 sauger any size. Three pike (one over 28"). We are running a Knock your Socks off semi-guided/lodging special with Rainydaze for less than the price of the Government check you are about to recieve! Check it out on the Sponsor Showcase and our web-site. We just wrapped up a great show with In-Fish and another with Gander Mountain's "We Live Outdoors" both to be shown next fall. We thank many of the local guides for making both shows a great success. The best ice fishing is ahead of us. We look forward to seeing you yet this winter. May your line never go slack.





PS Like most of the resorts on the American side of the Canadian border our summer spots are filling up fast. Book today and leave your Passport at home.

Right on Woody! The best fishing is yet to come and you cannot miss what Rainy Lake has to offer in the late season. As mentioned monster eyes, sturgeon, and pike on the Rainy River as well as monster pike and hungry walleyes on the lake. It's a win-win situation.

Lets face it the secrets out, everyone needs to come and experience Rainy Lake in the winter time for a memorable experience.

It is always a bit of a tough decision for me during that time of year. Some of our best ice fishing is going on during the same time. Often times I'll be on the river part of the day and in the bays laying the wood to MONSTER PIKE the other part. My all time favorite time of year is when the lake is still sheeted with ice and the bays are breaking free. YIKES! I'd suggest bringing the Big tackle!

Good Fishing!

      Fuses are blowing for a reason most likely an undesirable reason. Much better solution to fix the problem than eliminating the fuse. Eventually the sort or item causing the fuse to blow will eventually make it to the wires. Just a thought, although not recommend, there is enough battery current where you can stick weld 11 gage steel with a 12 volt battery. Continued or prolonged welding (same as a short) could cause to battery to explode. Word of caution, led acid batteries are filled with sulfuric acid.

      I agree with del, used boats are more than adequate. I bought a 1990 Crestliner Sport for $5,100 in 2013. Did some floor and live well work, added co-pilot to the trolling motor, Vexilar SonarPhone connected to my iPad, and a tablet with the Navionics Boating App for GPS. Welded verses rivet hull was my desire. Tops out at 43 mph with 115hp merc 2 stroke. Handles the 4' Ottertail waves quite well. Picture of boat on Ottertail which I fish several times yearly along with other Ottertail County lakes and lakes closer to home I frequent often. At 73 its easy to launch / take-out. Look for a family owner, one that uses the boat once or twice a month the boat/motor will have limited hours of use on it. In my opinion the used boat is the only way to go.

      Here's a quote from the MinnKota digital onboard charge manual. "INLINE FUSE The output cord has an inline fuse on the RED end. The fuse serves as protection from surges and short circuits caused by a damaged charger output cable. If a fuse blows, replace it with a 30 amp ATC 32V automotive fuse. Improper battery connections will normally not cause a fuse to blow since this is handled by the internal circuitry of the charger."

      That was my son cooking up my birthday dinner!  I'm older and have more grey hair (a lot more) than dark.  Be sure to say "hello-I'm Del"  if you see me!  Will be back up for a few extra days over Labor Day.

      There was a musky tourney last weekend, at spring bay.  Some club deal.   I think that might have contributed to the issue.   Normally I am one of few boats out on wakemup fishing walleye.   Like count on fingers of one hand.
