      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 .

Tonka tommorow

wmn luv me walleye fearme

Saw the weather report for tommorow and decided I needed to cut out early to go fishing. Plan on heading out of Grays at 2:30. Looking for a little advise as out side of on the ice a couple times I've really never fished Tonka for crappies, I plan on trying out Peavy lake, and there is a couple inlets on the north side of Wayzata bay (ones by a small park) that look promising. Anyone have any other general ideas on where I should be trying? And if its 70 degrees during the day tommorow any clue on how shallow I should be focusing on?
I plan on going with the trusted flu flu, with a crappie minnow or a waxie to start. Also at this point its just me and my dog so if anyone else wants to go let me know
thanks

take a look at the post "anyone hitting tonka lately" below. There are a couple reports from last weekends outings.

I caught a decent amount in 8-10ft on the northern side of Wayzata Bay. Several medium to small and a couple nice ones. I used a 1/32 oz white maribou jig tipped w/a crappie minnow under a bobber. Sounds like the 2-5 ft range was working a bit too.

Good luck, let us know how you did

I've been out lately.We accessed out of Maxwell Bay and did well around there.The fish we found were in 1-6 feet of water with some also lingering around 6-9 feet.We used flu-flu's and a minnow,then switched to just tube jigs.We caught them wherever the wind blew up on the shoreline.Look for the warmest water.

Good Luck.

I might be out later.

I will be going out Wed morning and fishing allday, and getting some of that 70 degree sun, and maybe some nice slabs also. Look for the white Searay pulling in all the fish.(j/k) Going to try the hot spots we fish for the crappie contest. Maybe hit Fletchers for lunch and some cold ones. Will report later

Thanks for the advise, will be pretty hard to concentrate at work tommorow. If you see a guy in a Lund Explorer with a German shepherd mix that looks terrifed of the water that would be me. (he hates the water but I'm pretty sure he'd rather be in the boat then the kennel)

The bite is starting to pick up .I've been fishing wayzata bay and peavey since the ice went out.The water temp in peavey is 51-52
and out on wayzata 44 the fish are in 6' on down to 1 foot in the warmer water areas.I hope this helps.1/64th ounce jigs pink or white tipped with a minnow are doing well
I will be out on wayzata bay today and tomorrow after 3 I put out of grays bay .Blue & grey Lund Tyee with the Zap lure fishing team logo on the side .I will be fishing on the west side of wayzata bay.Stop by and say hi if ya want.They just put the bouy markers out yesterday marking the channels and reefs .so for the people that aren't familiar with the areas it will help you get around without leaving a prop blade or two on the bottom of the pond!!
Tight lines all

      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

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!
