      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 .

Cliff, did not want to bother you prior to us leaving the area on Tuesday morning, I did look down the river and your boat was on the lift, I figured you were doing some of your work around the Ponderosa.
Thanks for the wonderful time that I had fishing with you on Sunday. Your a good teacher, I enjoyed learning a few new things, and will use those in the coming years. I did manage to get out Monday morning for an hour or so, kept one 17"er, jig and fathead, by the island where the big one came out of.
Talked with Bob at the Fortune Bay Marina on Monday morning, I was looking for some of those small sucker minnows, he said he was closing up this coming Sunday, so did not have any. I ran into Chuck? Kelly, the other guide we were talking with on Sunday morning, I mentioned to him, that the Marina was out of bait for the most part. Having only met this person the day before, he offered me some sucker minnows, what a nice person to do this for me. Just thought I would post this on the general Vermilion Forum, to let some of the other FM'ers know that if they are in the need of a good guide that will put you on fish, and also teach any old dog a new trick or two you are the man they should contact. Again thanks a bunch, also if you run into Mr. Kelly tell him I appreciated his generous offer, of the bait. He would not accept any money for them, you guys are the greatest.

Darrell,
Thanks!
I always enjoy getting together with you and Sue.
The walleyes are still biting in the spot we fished!
My son and 2 friends fished there on Sunday and caught 30+ there and kept their limits.
Chuck Kelly is a great guy and a very good guide to boot!
Take care.
Cliff

Cliff, are you ready for ice up yet? Don't know if you've been up to my folks lately but I have twi new wheelers sitting there ready to go.....Is your boat put awya for the year yet? I need to come up and get them to bring them home and do some preperation (auger mount, boxes for the back racks, etc..) and thought if I came up and you still want to get out I'd love to get out with ya once before ice up. Wish I could tow two trailers but tried to figure that one out and doggone it I just can't do it! I know your getting readyu for bambis too so let me know you schedule in the coming few weeks.

Larry, are you a St. Odelia Beach neighbor?

Bob,
I will probably keep the boat in the water until the last week of Oct. if the weather looks like it will hold.
It would be great if you could get up to do a little fishing before ice-up.
Not ready for ice yet!! Too good of a walleye bite going right now!
Will have to walk up and check out your wheelers.
Cliff

      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.

      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.

      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.
