      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 was planning on bringing my daughter out fishing on Sunday, it seems to be the only way the wife will let me go. I want to try Fish lake (maple grove area), But really have no idea where to even start. I hope I can find some action for her, any help or information would be appreciated.

Thanks

Try all along the same side as where the beach is at. Fish the shoreline from the big fishing pier all the way to the beach. I've had a fair amount of luck with the crappies there (lived about 2 miles from there until i moved by tonka), I've found very few keepers there but hope fully it will be enough to keep your daughter busy

Thanks for the info, i'll probably start there and see if i can get a few. my gf's house is the one directly across from the fishing pier so itll be easy enough to access. were you using plain hooks with minnows or did you have some kind of a jig on there? thanks for the help i really appreciate it, now im getting excited for the weekend

Honestly i'm a pretty crappy crappie fisherman,(no pun intended) I typicaly use just a minnow and a bobber or a flu flu and a waxie, thats basically all, I think i was just using a bobber and a minnow

Hey guys, I currently go to the U of M and love to fish crappies and plan on heading out to Fish Lake this weekend. I am lucky enough to have access to her dad's canoe so i will be out in that but i was wondering if anyone could tell me if the back channels are any good. i canoed around the lake the other day and found a feew spots id like to try and that channel with all the piers and some downed trees looked promising. also you say along the shore from the fishing pier to the beach is pretty deep there, i was wondering if you could tell me how deep you usually fish them there?? any info would gladly be appreciated and i will definitely post on how i do this weekend assuming i get out. if you would like to email me some info my email is bert0169@umn.edu thanks again guys for any help! good luck

Hopefully fish n hunt will report back how he did out there this weekend and maybe be able to give you some ideas. When i would fish from the pier to the beach I would fish about 6-8 feet (bobber fish ) in between the weeds. If you find a good pocket of them you can catch a ton but did not find many keepers whatsover (maybe it was before the females got in there so hopefully you;ll have better luck then I did)

Well i went out in search of crappies this weekend, but the water really cleared up and i couldnt seem to find them. i fished in the channel that is across from the beach and caught some nice bass while fishing for crappies. Also caught a couple of monster bluegills on minnows, but no crappies. any help on where to find them would be appreciated. thanks.

I lived on this lake from 4th grade up through high school. I also fished it periodically until my parents sold the house 4 years ago. Before it got fully developed, it was one hell of a lake to fish. We used to pull very good bass and pike out of there on a regular basis.

We always had to sort through the panfish to get keepers, but there was always plenty of action.

We always got the biggest bass in the early morning hours, working the docks and sandy shores adjacent to weedlines with plastic worms and topwaters or rapala shallow divers worked like a topwater.

We got big pikeon the deep weedlines by the park. This was before the access (or the milfoil)was there, however.

I'm thinking of throwing the canoe in there a couple of times this summer to see how much it's changed.

      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.
