      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 am finally going to break down and but an underwater camera! 80% of the time it will be used on Mille Lacs. I am looking for input on what would be my best choice.

I just got mine last year. Just a cheap aqua view. And it works great! It may not be as nice as the higher end modles but it does a great job for the buck.

There is nothing like watching fish TV, and you are the host! You will be amazed at what you will see and learn. You will be glad you made the investment.

makes fishing even more fun, and I didn't that was possible!! I use an aqua-vu and have never had a complaint. Works great and will definatly help you put more fish on the ice. i like to usse mine on mille lacs because of the outstanding water clarity. Have fun with the new toys.

Another vote for the 560, it is great. I like the picture and even in darker situations it is nice.

I purchased a 825c it is great in water 18ft or less. I had a faulty camera within the first week. Marcums customer service is much better then aqua view. if I bought another it would be the 820 it sees much beter in deeper water. the flat screen is the best around well worth the price. nice not to have a sun shield.

I'd debate the Marcum vs. Nature Vision (Aqua View) costumer service comment Cedarcreek. I've seen examples to make me believe the opposite.

Thanks everyone for your input.

I am thinking about the marcum. (I have a LX5 and really like it) what I am trying to decide on is between the 560 and the 820. I would like to use it for open water also.

pro's con's of each?

if you are going to use it during the summer you might want a sun shield so you can see a little better. but i'm not sure if either of those have shields.

I've had my 560 for 3 years now. And, this season have been using the 825c. If Marcum combines the flat screen daylight viewable monitor with the panning camera, that will be perfect! I am very spoiled with the auto panning of the 560 but, the 820 series has benefits, too.

Here's a Close Up Look at the 560. Maybe there will be some info to help you decide.

Thanks everyone for your input! I have decided to go with the Marcum VS380. It doesn't have some of the options of the 560 but it has what I feel I need.

im still using the OVS300, one of the first to come out. technology has improved the packages but this one has worked just fine for me. the reason i got it was because the place i bought it allowed me to try 4 different manufacturers cameras in their minnow tank. the OVS300 had the best picture. it was also the most compact and lightest.

just heading out to minnetonka now to try for the walleyes.

regards,

      Got up to Bowstring again at Geigers Trails End Resort. Went up to get some crappies nd found them but again could not get one to bite out deep.  One spot they were 7 feet thick ! LOL   So we chased perch and did great. No 12 inchers but a lot of dandies. Not sure if I will get back up before ice.  Crappies should be great this winter.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.
