      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 .

Kids Perch Jerk Time again

Recommended Posts

This Sunday from 1-3 is the annual Dark House Association Perch Jerk on Lake Bemidji. We need drillers to drill 2000 holes this year. If you have an hour or so on Sunday am please come down to the lake on the South Side and help us drill some holes. This event would not be an event without the volunteers that help out. Bring the kids in the afternoon to enjoy the day on the ice, maybe win a bike and other prizes that are available. The contest is FREE and there are tickets available at Gander, Tabers, Blue Water and on the ice. Each kid will receive a free meal and pop.

Hope to see you on the lake on Sunday! grin

Thanks for posting this woodman... We are currently evaluating the access situation for the location of the event. The Cameron Park access has melted to much and the Nymore access is on it's way to being flooded. Our two locations currently are still out in front of the Nymore access or Lake Irvine. We will determine the location Friday by noon. We currently need a few more volunteers for both hole drilling and during the event... This year we are anticapating on have 1400-1500 kids... WHAT A BLAST THIS WILL BE...

You know I'll be there. Trying to recruit more drillers. I think next year we need to tap some of the Well Drilling businesses in town and have them drill holes and let it be known that was their donation... cool

So if we want to help drill holes we just show up Sunday AM? I'm on spring break so I really got nothing to do this weekend so I could come put the ole MagIII through its paces. Let me know the specifics if you could.

Pretty sure it's been moved to Lake Irving. You can bring your auger, but I know in the past, they were provided...

Yep, just show up around 8am. Strikemaster provides the augers for drilling the holes. The holes have to be 6 inches to prevent any kids from stepping in one and going down. And after 300-400 holes you'll be thankful they are 6 inchers vs. 8 or 10... grin

What a great day had by all today on Lake Irving! grin To me it seemed to be a record breaking year for turn out for families! We were drilling holes up to the start of the event. It was great to see all the families out enjoying the weather and outdoors. Lots of hoots when items were won, and lots of smiles! The fish were not on fire, and I didn't hear how many were caught in all. THere were some pigs caught and the day was AWSOME! Thanks for all the people who helped out at the event and A JOB WELL DONE! cool

Glad to hear everything went well today. I haven't moved much since getting home after hole drilling this morning, it was a little more of a workout than I thought it would be. Good to see mother nature cooperated for the event too.

Advil is your friend remember... grin I took some as soon as I got home this evening.

A great day to be out there, the drilling went pretty quick even though we had to tap a few more holes to get everyone in. Very good turnout and the weather couldn't have been any better.

Glad you mentioned the IceArmor bibs cause we were all huffin & puffin for air... sick

Woodman and I had Strikemaster bibs on, he was the ugly one. Our buddy Jeff had Strikemaster on too, he's the one expressing his thoughts on the current presidential administration. grin

Thanks for coming out and helping out Russ, it is very appreciated.

      See you next year, we are pulling out this week and it sounds like you were only up for the weekend.   Sorry I didn't quite have the nerve to climb the steps and introduce myself.   I guess I am not big on just showing up at the door. 
    • Surface Tension
      Lester River-McQuade area.   Last time out we found bait and Lake Trout 100-120'  taken off downriggers and stacked lines over 145-175' of water.  That can change day to day so keep an eye on the sonar.   Silver Flasher w/Fly, Water Mellon, Monkey Puke, Silver w/green/blue crushed ice spoons working well for us.  Last 2 times out were during midday and bright skies trolling around 2 MPH.   If you put in at Rice's Point bring rubber boots and watch your step as the beginning of the dock is under water.

      So all 3 banks are blowing fuses with the charger outside the boat hooked to a battery with nothing else connected to it?   Try a different battery.  If your still blowing fuses I wouldn't use the charger.

      Buy The Boat.

      Labor day will be a busy weekend.  If you are around after the weekend, Maybe we can grab a beer.  I was going to say the landing, but maybe something else....WBL?

      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.
