      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 .

depths of pannies

Going to be up visiting my in-laws this weekend and am going to try and get some fishing time in. They live on Lake Charlotte, so I will probably fish there. Just wondering if you are seeing the fish suspended in deep water or if they are moving up into the shallows.

Thanks!

Was out there about a week ago, caught 3 crappies in the 4"-6" range. Fished in the bay over the 26' hole. I think spring after ice out is a better option for the sunfish. Have never caught much for size in the winter months. I have caught nice crappies in the winter, but you have to pick through them. Good Luck!

Obviously, all lakes are different as far as structure and depths. I fished all last weekend in about 18 fow for pannies and they were anywhere from 3 feet off the bottom to 6 feet under the ice. This was not on a local lake though. hope this helps some.

The bay is fine to drive trucks on. Ice down to the auger head. I have heard from others that there are springs somewhere once you go out of the bay on to the bigger part of the lake. I have no idea where, so I just stay off the bigger part of the lake until ice off.

Better hope it is cloudy,Charlotte is a pretty darn clear lake,but if you want murky you can always slide over too Beebe or Martha if it is sunny out.

sure coulda used less windy Friday..oh well. this morning went to a little lake- i have no idea even what the name was...but the bluegills were going wild!!! Tons of smaller fish, nothing huge, but some 8" fish if you worked at it. Got enough for a meal!! If you got some small kids and want them to get into some fish, shoot me a message.

Been on Beaver quite a bit, a little farther north of you but still your typical small round basin lake. Fish are 3-6 feet off the bottom in 20-26 feet and seem to be everywhere. Minnows one day, gulp nuggies the next, wouldn't go out without both.

It has always been a bad access as far as summer fishing. People still go there though. I have seen trucks with trailers parked from the bottom to the top of the hill in the spring/early summer. Good lake for action, not much for size. 2 years ago my buddy had stuck his thumb with a spinner bait tring to get a northern of the hook. It was so bad I had to land the boat and bring him to Monticello hospital to get it removed. Only 5 shots of novakine(I think thats how you spell it) and it was out. His thumb was twice the size for 1 month, not kidding you. Dangerous Pike pike out there. Thank god it was only about 18" long!!!

      Wasn't sure, but I found it. looked like  you were cooking something on the grill.

      We were out near Taylors.  Couple boats and us and a pontoon and a pleasure boat cut right between us "sight seeing".  Blows my mind how they cut right between boats that are fairly close to each other fishing an area and cruise right through without a care in the world!  Del, I thought last year you figured out which place I had?

      Fuses are for fire protection. If you're willing to risk a fire in your boat if something goes awry, have at it. Your insurance company would be happy to have a good reason to keep all the premiums you've paid and refuse your claim. Hopefully no one will get injured or die in the fire.

      Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.

      Looking to get on some walleye and crappie this week, looks like mayflies were out in full force last night when I was on the lake. First year fishing this lake, where does a guy start?

      Thank you one and all, especially you Tommy. Some very kind words and ditto to you my friend. "Ace" "It's just fishing man"

      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were
