      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 .

Weetown burnt down.

It is a sad day in Otter Tail County. One of the most famous landmarks in Otter Tail County was lost early this morning when fire gutted the Pantry and Pub in Weetown. Thank God that no on was hurt. I will miss Thursday night buck burger, The meeting spot for the days snowmoblie ride, The Noon burgers I would run down and get when I was working around the yard, and last but not least the the great people. I have heard no word on Owner' plans on what they will do from here. I wish them the best of luck.

That is terrible news. It was one of my favorite pitstops when riding the sleds up to D.L.

I didn't even get a chance to check that place out yet! Too busy moving and getting settled in, and she burns. Bummer.
I did hear that the owners are going to re-build. I hope they do, it looks like a great location, and even better if they build a new establishment! Change for the better?

I only got there a couple times that I remember but I can relate to the loss. Anyone here ever hang out at spruce grove between frazee and detroit lakes in their wild youth?
It was a sad day when that one went also, many of our parents probably met there, carved their names into the booth or table. It was alot of fun..... Paul

Hey Biggestfish!

Just a note to let you know I'll be camping at my place on Heilberger Friday & Saturday attempting to do some mowing/cleanup. I'll be back the first weekend in August with my wife & girls. Stop by if you see me around.

I'm sure going to miss my WeeTown "snack" breaks! Any word on a possible re-build?

I will be unable to make it over this weekend, we have other plans... I hope you have your mower blade sharpe..HA HA. I should be able to catch you that 1st weekend in Aug.

Weetown update. Thursday they knocked down the burned out shell that was left after the fire. The last I heard on the rebuild was about 3 weeks ago when I ran in to the owners at Target... They said they had one more meeting with the insurance adjuster and would base their plans on that meeting, since then I have not heard anything. I have heard a lot of rumors, but nothing for sure... I do hope they rebuild.

      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?

      Thank you one and all, especially you Tommy. Some very kind words and ditto to you my friend. "Ace" "It's just fishing man"

      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!
