      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 can tell you that permanents have been getting broken into the last couple weeks on Hall. I stopped and talked to a few guys on my way off the ice this morning and they said 6 got hit last night and quite a few last week. My aunt lives on Amber, and yeah- I don't really recall anyone driving out on there either. I have yet to fish it this winter, but may tomorrow. Caught a nice catfish there last winter

That is horrible. Respect people. I never leave much in my wheelhouse, but the fact that they would break the door to get in is cost enough. Come on people get some pride and respect others stuff.

Dan,

Is there any size to the Crappies on Fox?? What access are you using?? We just got back from Mille Lacs and should have listened to everyone and went somewhere else..Tracey

ML disappointing? My dad and I went to Fox yesterday, set up under the power lines and didn't catch anything. We headed to St James today and had about a hundred fish marked on my MarCum and his Vex, but not a single biter. PPL were pulling perms off St James big time.

There are some decent crappies on fox.Under the wires is not where they are right now.Small perch and wallys are in the hole under the wires.Go east where the perms are in 17 foot and its crappies galore.After dark is best.I have been using the NE access.Big rut there so i would be very carefull if your trying with a car.Theres crappies and perch by the first 3 perms just out from the landing.

There must not be too awful much pressure on Hall this year. Usually there'd be enough houses there for a little insurance to prevent that. Shack owners need to get to know each other and form some sort of watch relationship. It sure would be nice to catch these punks. Catching several of them will do good for all.

Is the driving on fox usually pretty good? Just wonderen because of all the pionts there might get to be some current in there. We have only fished once ice fishing and it was right in front of the boat landing we ended up only geting a little walleye and sunfish, and we might have to go try it again by the power lines.

If you enter from the north east corner you can drive all the way to the power lines.There is a little open water just next to the plant.There is also open water where the discharge from the plant is.I have driven from the north east corner all the way past the plant in the bay north of the plant.I can tell you that under the wires right now is not good for the panfish.Try going to the point just before the power lines in 17 fow.There was 2 perms there still last weekend.In the middle of the bay just north of the plant theres a good early morning and late evening bite.

Didn't know they caught the guy or guys. I figured they would.

      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.
