      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 was out on Zipple Bay. Hot Spot road. Fishing was pretty slow. Caught quite a few little ones, and nothing over 15, didn't keep any. Roads and weather very bad Sat. Only saw about 10 other trucks out there. Was kind of wondering what the heck I was doing out there???

SW side of the pond. Draw a line from Rocky point to the South tip of Buffalo point and everything to the west would be Muskeg Bay.

Was out of Zipple on Thurs-Sat. Gorgeous weather on the ice the first 2 days and the fishing was OK at best. Lots of little ones with the biggest 17" but we selectivley brought back a dozen each day (3 guys) and had 2 good fish frys. Saturday was brutal out there. Luckily we were able to go into a friends hard side. I heard a portable took a 2 mile ride in the wind and was stopped by a hard side house. Sat. we had to keep some smaller 10-11" sauger to top off our fish fry. It was a good trip.

Stayed in Sportsman's Sleepers Friday through Sunday. Saturday the fishing was good. We caught about 60 walleye or sauger for 2 of us and kept just short of our limit with nothing under 14 inches. Had a nice fish fry for supper and stayed extremely warm, even with the wind and cold temps. Sunday was a bit slower, but we end up coming home with our limit, again nothing under 14 inches. Biggest in the bucket was 18 inches, a few 17's, most of them 16 inchers. I'd say overall it was a pretty awesome trip. Thank you to all the Sportsman's guide for their hard work and risking themselves on Saturday to check on us and anyone else who was out there. We appreciate everything you did to make our trip comfortable!!!

      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.
