      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 .

Aquatronics-Boat CD player/Stereo-Model MC1000

I wondered before I buy a new boat stereo if anybody would have a clue to what is wrong with my 1 year old Auqatronic and how to repair? I used it Saturday night and was going across some 25 mph wind/chop on the lake and the boat was getting pretty wet. Now I hear these stereos are water sealed, but is it possible it got wet and fried the system? Maybe just letting it air out will correct the problem? The stereo was on and all of a sudden---nothing. Has anyone had the same problem or have the electronic knowledge to what happened?

I wanted to listen to the T-Wolves as I fish this eve. Any suggestions would be helpful!

Thanks.

Check the wiring connections, I would guess there is a fuseable link. Maybe you just blew the fuse

Sounds like a fuse got blown to me, too... if it had fried, you would've heard it...

I checked the fuses on the box last night and they all looked fine. Do you think there is a acual fuse inside the stereo itself? If so, wouldn't the stereo not work at all? I am able to dial staitions, treb/bass and adjust the volume on the face, but no sound and no light on the face plate. It has a detachable face on it. I really think it may of gotten wet from that rough ride. I have it in the house now under a fan in hopes it helps dry it out if that is the problem.

I appreciate your suggestion and will look over the stereo itself for a fuse tonight. I just called Audiovox (aquatronics) and left a message with them in hopes they call me back soon.

Augg, I hate when this **** happens!

Have a great evening! Any other suggestions?

I was just passing through and saw the name of the radio I have in my boat. I had the same thing happen last year at the lake on July 4th. We were water skiing, then after we were done, the radio stopped working. It appeared to be on but there was no sound. I thought that it had something to do with the speakers. I brought it to the dealership and they turned it on with no problems at all. It had sat unused for 2-3 days, and I wondered if maybe something got wet or there was a loose connection. It has worked just fine so far this year. I know that this isn't much help, but I thought that I'd let you know that I had the same thing happen.

Thanks Remmington,
I have a new one ordered at no charge to me, luckly it was still on warrenty. I tried it again last night and it still didn't work.

Audiovox (Aquatronics) is replacing it with a new model, The MC - 1000 has been discontinued for some reason???

If there's a reset button on it (normally on the front), I'd try that. My car stereo has a weird hait of locking up like that at times... everything looks like it's working, but no sound. Or sometimes no buttons work, so you're stuck with the station, CD or whatever at times.. It's happened three times to it, and it's some kind of computer glitch.. something gets stuck in whatever state it was in, and locks up the whole thing. YOu may want to look at that, too.
OR, some stereos have a fuse on the back of the stereo, or on the power wire...

On some of those with detachable faces, there is a little button that helps push the face off the unit. Check to make sure that is moving smoothly, and that it goes in all the way.

I will try those suggestions as well before I make my exchange next Wednesday. I think I have tried every buttom on the stereo, but with look for the reset and the detachable face button.

Thanks!

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.

      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels

      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.

      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
    • Wanderer
      Are they both the same age?  Equal condition?  Do you hand drag or machine pull?  Weight will matter a lot. You really have to consider how you plan to use the house.  Happiness with the houses performance is the biggest key.   Otherwise it appears to be a trade from a $480 house to a $700 house based on new house prices if I looked at the right Frabil.

      It's not thermal. How's frabill's customer service in case you break a poll or something?
    • going4it
      The only problem I had with my frabill was its weight. It was a tank to pull and tough to put in the bed of the truck.

      Anyone else think the number of people ice fishing in the last 5 years has grown greatly in our area? To me it has and to me it seems alot harder now to find a spot of your own, or spots that have been pasted down on a lake that there arnt 5 to 50 people trying to fish! Gps doesn't help the cause either, I wonder what the future of ice fishing and the fish/ crappie population is going to look like in the next 5 to 10 years. Last year kinda shocked me to by the number of people out partying out on cedar and even the sound of subs going by in cars on the ice.. like really??! Could see the look of what is wrong with people from dads and familys out with their kids. Sorry about the rant
    • Bass Thumb
      I found exactly the same thing today. It was a steady 5" walking to the fishing spot. 3" of ice on the spot, if that. Cracks everywhere. Water pushing out of holes I had drilled. Not good.
