      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 .

A group of 8 of us where up last weekend for our 1st trip to Red. Chad was a great guide, he put us on the fish and even rescued us from a 5 foot drift on Saturday. That weather was something else, I have never seen anything like that before. We will definatly be back next near. I would highly recomend him to anyone looking for great experience on Red.

I second that, thanks Chad we had a blast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There where 3 of the greenest fisherman you have ever met that came with and all three had fish with in the first hour they where there. Then even with the cold and wind everyone had a great time. Thanks and I would recomend Chad to my mother! I will try and write a report later this week. The hot luers where demons, glow and pink, green, or purple. Also a orange and black with silver back demon worked well too. Some hit it one the way by and some needed you to raise it up and drop it and then they would hit it on the down. Good luck!

If you don't mind I'd like to thank Chad in your post also.

We did fair on Friday night and Chad offered to move the house on Saturday afternoon (ohh so cold)a little closer to the rough ice I asked about on Friday and that was all it took. Between the three of us we caught and released 32 walleyes over 19" with the largest one being 28". We also brought our 2 each home in the 16-16.5 range. We jigged just about anything to get them in and they hit the deadsticks everytime. What fun it was.

I think that was you guys stuck with the trailer... I was warming the truck up to come have a look when Chad pulled up.

I might make it up one more time... Thanks

Man, you guys are killing me! I'll be heading up there on Sunday to stay in one of Chad's houses with my son and his buddy for their first trip to Red. They've been counting the days for a month, and now reading reports like yours, any thoughts of school work has gone right out the window.

That was us stuck out there. We got off the lake fine, to fill up the diesel so we could let it run for the rest of the weekend, but 30min later coming back on was different story. We were hammering through drifts 3-4 feet for a mile or two until we could not make the turn there. It was a total whiteout.If we didnt have our H20 we would have never known wich way to go. We had to unhook the trailer and get it in the morning. It was a blast.

      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.
