      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 .

Humane Society Labs

The news last night told of a Lab breeder whose operation got too big and out of hand. In the last couple of weeks, he has turned over about a hundred Labs to the Hennepin Co. Humane Society in Golden Valley. The film showed Labs of all colors and ages. They didn't look to be abused or starved, and the society is going to need lots of good homes.

If you're interested, their number is 763-489-2201.

I'll save Ken some time by not posting my real thoughts. It is a shame to see all these animals. Expecialy so many Labs. I wonder how many more he still has for sale in the star trib?

That's just sad... Hope they find good homes for these dogs and hope somebody shuts this [PoorWordUsage] down at his puppymill!!! (that probably gets a "poorworduseage" but use your imagination!)

Were all of his puppies AKC registered? I can't imagine going to pick up a puppy and seeing what this guys place looked like.

I think they said they were. The HS will not give you the papers anyways. It does show how much the AKC cares about breeding/breeders.$$$$$

AKC papers don't really mean that much anyway, even if you want to breed. Lots of poor breeding is done with AKC registered dogs. If you are looking for a companion and hunting partner, papers shouldn't matter.

Hey Soldier Girl, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota and thanks for serving our country. I agree about the AKC papers, most dogs can't read them anyway. And I think the Humane Society has a policy that all dogs adopted out have to be spayed or neutered, so breeding isn't a big concern.

There have been comments about the irrespnsible breeder ending up with this many dogs. That's probably true, but right now the concern should be for the dogs and finding them homes. I'm guessing that with that many dogs, they didn't get a lot of indiviual human contact and may need special attention, but on the other hand, they were't physically abused either, so they shouldn't have any problems in that area. When my brother's hunting dog had 10 pups, he hired two little neighbor girls to come over every day for a couple hours and play with the pups. The girls thought they had the best job in the world, getting payed to play with puppies.

CW... you are correct! A crying shame! And more solidifcation to your arguments on how the inherited disorders are so prevelant in Labs... there is way too much of this going around!!!!

If I heard correctly, This isn't the 1st time this guy's been busted for this...

Good Luck!

Ken

Well, I might take a look. My wife is checking about once an hour at work \:\) I guess there will be a lot listed online once they get fixed and vaccinated by a vet.

      Still out working Finn most days, because being laid off I have a little more time for it. Seeing it is warm I keep the sessions short. Finn is been dropping the dummies on my feet just as I want him to do. I can't wait for hunting season as I know Finn as excited as I am.

      See you next year, we are pulling out this week and it sounds like you were only up for the weekend.   Sorry I didn't quite have the nerve to climb the steps and introduce myself.   I guess I am not big on just showing up at the door.

      Lester River-McQuade area.   Last time out we found bait and Lake Trout 100-120'  taken off downriggers and stacked lines over 145-175' of water.  That can change day to day so keep an eye on the sonar.   Silver Flasher w/Fly, Water Mellon, Monkey Puke, Silver w/green/blue crushed ice spoons working well for us.  Last 2 times out were during midday and bright skies trolling around 2 MPH.   If you put in at Rice's Point bring rubber boots and watch your step as the beginning of the dock is under water.

      So all 3 banks are blowing fuses with the charger outside the boat hooked to a battery with nothing else connected to it?   Try a different battery.  If your still blowing fuses I wouldn't use the charger.

      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."
