      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 .

Can anyone tell me where to find a ram or similar movable multi-position mount for a Vexilar? I know they are out there. I have seen one in a boat but havent been able to find one in any catalog or at Gander or fleet farm. Any specifics would be great if anyone knows part #'s.
GOOD LUCK

I found what I was looking for at Gander Mountain in St. Cloud. Picked up the Ram Universal mount and purchased the vexilar gimble bracket at the same time. The FL-18 and 74 LB Minnkota AP/Universal Sonar are going to be a good tag team this spring/summer and fall then the FL-18 goes back to ice fishing.

I can't speak for rod holders but for locators/gps and other marine electronics Ram mounds are the way to go!

Good luck shopping.

I use the Vexilar ProMount Quick Release for my FL-18 on the bow of my boat. It is very nice.

For years anglers have been demanding a strong, low profile, quick release bracket for holding their fishing electronics. Designed to handle today's most popular sonar units, GPS or portable radios. The ProMount Quick Release Bracket makes it possible to easily remove your electronics weighing up to three pounds from a permanently mounted base with one hand. The 360-degree swivel adjustment lets you see the unit from any angle.

The Pro Mount will fit nearly all Lowrance, Garmin, Eagle, Hummingbird, Pin-Point and Vexilar electronics. The permanent base is available separately too, which makes it easy to place several bases around the boat or even in another boat. Several systems have been mounted in trucks to hold GPS units with great success. The ProMount sells for much less than current brackets, but with more features and versatility.

The sleek, low profile of the ProMount is only 1 1/8 inches high. The permanent base has no sharp edges to step-on or wear a hole in your boat cover. An optional installation hole cover spacer comes with every base to give you a well finished look to the mount when installed. Your electronics can also be mounted overhead and hang down on the secure locking rail system of the ProMount to increase the potential places you can mount electronics.

The ProMount Quick Release Bracket comes with all stainless steel mounting hardware and the bracket is corrosion resistant. The ProMount is self-draining and easy to clean, so it even looks good when the electronics are not in your boat.

Check out the Vexilar website for photos and you will see what I am talking about.

      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?

      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!
