      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 .

This guy has been stalking me for the last 3 weeks since I first saw him. I would only see him if I left the camera at home.

This is near Lk. of the Isles

Good photos. I know of two neighborhoods in Minnetonka and one in Excelsior that have numerous albino squirrels. The Excelsior city park has had them for many years and they go to great lengths to protect them. The first time I saw one there, I thought we should call the newspaper, and all of a sudden there were three of them out there feeding. If you ever see an all black one, that I would like to see a picture of. They're supposed to be much rarer than albinos.

I have seen these all over the Uptown area when working. And I have seen a couple all black, they look like a mink. I will try to get a picture of the black.

I have seen them! About three weeks ago I was awed at the sight of the albino one. You say the black ones are rare? Get this...between my three neighbors, we now have the albino one and have had a black one for a few years now. Even better, the black one has half a tail, and he still climbs those electrical wires every day. I always tell my friends about the black on and he almost always shows off in their presence. I love them. I do hate the little brown one that chewed up a ton of wires under the hood of my Pathfinder this year. Anyone want to lend me a pellet gun?

Catch 'em fast!

Great pics! I'd love to see an albino squirrel in person. I'd love to see them rumored black squirrels in person also! All I see is the classic brown and grey.

At least I have seen the White Deer that are on the ANL property in Illinois. smile.gifsmile.gif

The albinos were fairly common in SW Mpls. when I was growing up. But they're always interesting to see. How about flying squirrels? I've only seen one over the years in Mpls. It was on my tree one night about 2 a.m. I suppose they are common, but being nocturnal most people don't see them. Vern

Some of those are not albino. They are just white. Farmington is full of them. They do look a little funny running up a tree.

Our neighborhood in East Bloomington has plenty of the white and I have seen the black ones, although much more scarce.

Last weekend in Ill. I caught an albino catfish-about 2 lbs - Ugly looking thing, not nearly as cool as the albino squirrel or deer. Had to bring it home to get a picture. Then a neighbor tells me there are several in that small lake. Had lots of leeches in its belly-hope that "taste" is out of the filets by the time I eat it.

I stayed @ Campbell's Resort on Lac La Croix in Ontario last summer - they had 2 taxidermied albino beaver - 1 in the office & 1 in the dining hall. Not just old & faded but albino. Bizarre.
There is an albino squirrel hanging around the wildlife viewing room @ Richardson Nature Center at Hyland Lake Park Reserve in Bloomington if you'd want to see one in the wild close-up.

We have an albino squirrel that frequents the bird feeder in the back yard. Have not seen him for a few weeks though so hope he is okay. There are some albino deer at the campground by Mille acs as well.

We've got an all black one at our place in Bemibji, hangs around quite a bit. It's pretty funny when he tries to hid in a tree, he doesn't know he sticks out like a sore thumb...I'll try to get a photo to post

i had an uncle who one time shot an albino porcupine he brung it home and showed my grandpa.(i'm an ojibway indian by the way)my grandpa told him this was not a good thing he said that this thing was put on the earth for a special reason probley unknown to man maybe just to the animals. my unlce did'nt care and said it made a good trophy anyway. my grampa warned of the bad luck that would follow. The next year one of my uncles twin daughters died. The following year his youngest son lost an eye.my uncle himshelf just fell over one day hit his head and died doctors said it was an accident. The family thought the bad luck died with him but not so his oldest son was crossing the train tracks one day and was hit by a train.He lived but still swears he never seen that train coming.True story this porcupine can be seen in the becker county historical society in detroit lakes mn. The curator ask my family for permisson to tell the story but know one will too afraid of the curse.

      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.
