      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 .

Dude

BoneCrusher is always HOT in early Oct.

Toenail is now holding a few Fatty's.

Slipped Disk is really Due.

Harrys Pit can and should be fun in the next week.

Sugars Reef, Body SLAM and the Nude Gap are sure to Produce a good trolling bite.

Elephant hump should be good this week come the SW or S Winds above 16 MPH.

Flea point and Midge Ally have fish near by, most just waiting for someone to drop on by.

Sleepy Eye and FLag Staff Reefs are looking good and a friend just bagged a beauty.

Highlow is on fire with fish, but they all got LOCK JAW!!!

Any of these places are just waiting for you to serve up lunch.

We will be hitting 16 to 20 of these simular places each day with clients in the next six.

Have fun and watch for the KnobGobbler.


Keep on Rock'en!

You need the newest revision to Lakemaster's new map; the MTGS Version. More information then you can handle.

All of the spots mentioned above, and much much more. Locations are discreetly marked in a color coded fashion. Tips for which bait works best on which spot at a particluar time of day, during the moon phase. Tips on whether to cast or troll during the Rusty Crayfish molt and mayfly hatch.

Musky Tom, I always love reading your posts this time of the year. I'll grab my map and sit down and try to decipher your coded messages. Your last post looks like it will take me awhile! I chatted with you briefly at the N. Metro Inc. meeting late last winter. I always appreciate Guideman's and your reports. I'm heading up late this week, do you think it's more of a trolling bite yet? Or should I still be casting? Thanks again.

It's been almost too windy to cast the last few days however, I'm not much for trolling myself. smile.gif

Looks like a great weekend is on it's way, as we are expecting day time temps in the high 60's to low 70's, the rest of the week.

Water temps have fallen like a rock in recent days, turnover can't be far away in my estimation. Big hair, gliders and cranks should be on the menue this week for the big girls. smile.gif

Have a great time! smile.gif

Guideman, thanks for the info. I've usually gone up the first weekend in Oct., but for the last few years it seems like that is the coldest weekend of the fall. This year, we'll try the second weekend,and it looks like it might be too nice! As I stated before, thanks to you and Musky Tom for always giving out info about the conditions and the bite. For those of use who only come up a few times a year, we appreciate the free info, which could cost you some income. Maybe I'll run in to you at the V club and buy you a "pop". Thanks again.

I heard there was a 60" fish caught up there a few days ago?

I have heard nothing yet so will treat this as another 60" rumor until I see some proof.

      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.
         
    • Surface Tension
      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.  
    • Surface Tension
      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.
