      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 .

Does anyone know anything about South Turtle in Otter Tail county? Is it a good panfish lake?

South Turtle is a fine panfish lake. As of Sunday, the prime spots were still wet and wavy.

Hey Gissert, How does it compare to North Turtle in relation to Crappies and Northerns? I noticed that access to North has been restricted again this year and I am looking for a lake to put a perm. house on with similar charateristics. Thanks for the help.

north turtle.....well, we caught a lot of decent northerns and a lot of real nice eatin crappies, we even mounted three crappies out that lake last winter that measures 17+. But the lake got crazy pressure from everyone and their mother. So i'm looking to find a new lake close to fergus with similar results.

if you're looking for where to fish, your best bet is amongt all the houses on the north west side of the lake in about 10'-15' of water. If you get on the edge of some vegetation or at best a submerged tree, you're gonna nail 'em.

It's walleye pop. is weak, but the crappies are mighty fine. The scoop on last year is that there isn't a public access on the lake. Which means,in most years, you needed know someone to get on it legally. Well last year the water level came right up to a gravel road so it was real easy to gain access to the lake. This year the water is low, and the locals talked the township to put up no parking signs on the road.

Hey Brett Schutz,I would be interested on getting on NT too. I started mainly spearing there about 5-6 years ago, when it was unreal spearing,and hardly anyone fished there, now it's not as good as it used to be. It's also a real pain to get on the lake, especially when the water isn't up. It's still fun to go out when the water is clear and spear the occasional 3-4 pounder.(nice smokers)

Student -

South Turtle is much clearer and deeper than North Turtle. I do the secchi disk readings on the lake, and in September I had readings of 19.5 and 22. The pike in S. Turtle tend to run smaller, and the crappies can be tough to find at times. Your best bet is in the area right out from the public access. You will see where to go, as a pretty good size village sets up there. Some dandy bass are often caught in December there as well. I don't like crowds, so I usually fish elsewhere. It is not too bad during the mid week, but on the weekends there tends to be a lot of activity.

I see where the township has put up signs along that gravel road along N. Turtle. Some folks have really abused the adjacent landowners land in years past, and the signs are a result of that. Once the ice is driveable with a truck, I would bet there will be people driving out from that area where the water is adjacent to the road right of way.

      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.

      There was a musky tourney last weekend, at spring bay.  Some club deal.   I think that might have contributed to the issue.   Normally I am one of few boats out on wakemup fishing walleye.   Like count on fingers of one hand.
