      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 .

Wyoming elk tag information is available today and I just found out that I drew another elk tag there! I'm super excited!!! It's unbelievably lucky to draw in the unit I did the first time, but to get two in a row is a complete fluke! I'm one of those guys who never wins anything, so I'll consider this makeup for all of the raffle tickets, drawings, etc. I've not hit on in the past. Yeeeeeehhhhaaaaa, I'm excited!

I hope this doesn't come across as gloating, but I'm just really pumped! \:\)

That's awesome... Elk hunting is high up on my list right now. I'm making the first step in getting to the black hills this spring and hopefully will continue to head west in the upcoming years. Congrats on drawing the tag. You should post some pictures from last years hunt...

That's right... I do remember seeing that - You were asking advice on the last picture (which is spectacular btw). Awesome hunt. After reading that post I can see why you're so excited at drawing another tag! Lucky devil. If you don't mind me asking, what's a ballpark figure on the cost of a do-it-yourself hunt such as that including license? I'm very interested...

I did the entire trip last year for just over $2000. This year I'm pretty sure the whole thing will cost me about $1200 or so. To get the go ahead from my wife, I had to send her on a trip to Mexico with a friend of hers. I'll have to use the payment from teaching a class at NDSU or Concordia to pay for my trip and hers, but it'll be well worth it!

Well the horsehoe must be rubbing off... I just checked my SoDak turkey app and we drew as well. We'll now have 3 tags to fill. Check on your applications!

Scoot-

That's very reasonable. Might have to sacrifice a few turkey hunts but it would be worth it. I think Mexico is a pretty fair trade for bugling bulls in the hills!

Congrats on the draw. Would love to go out west and do a hunt like that. Got my elk right here in minnesota last year.

Thanks Tom, I'm really excited about it. I can't wait.

dukhnt, where'd you get your elk in MN? What'd you shoot it with? If you can swing a trip to the mountains to chase elk, I'd highly recommend it. Outside of the birth of my kids and my wedding day, it was the most incredible experience I've ever had. After last year, I'd like to think I'll be going back many times. However, I'm not exactly independently wealthy + the tags are getting tougher and tougher to come by regarding the draw. So... I'll go while I can and hope for the future. I'll be taking a second job to pay for this trip, but there's no whining there- it'll totally be worth it.

My dad and I were drawn for one of the six elk tags up by Grygla. Shot her with a 7mm. She was close enough for a bow though. 15 minutes before I took her, I had the 7x7 60 yards broadside. With no bull tag, I could only watch. But that was an awesome sight to see. I will never forget it. Good luck to you. To bad fall is such a long ways away.

      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"  
    • tacklejunkie
      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
