      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 .

I would try off the wall in front of the Shorline Resturant.and head north stay close to the shore until you get to the public landing and then follow the ledge.. 15-20 feet. that will take you over to Stoney Point..another area to try is off north point..follow the shore around to Sunset Beach resort.. that should get you some eyes..good luck

Smoker,
Get some shiners, and I heard leeches are working too for some people. I've fished a couple areas Resorter is talking about, but I've struggled for A walleye. I guess the word is that W. Battle is dead, but I've heard that plenty of times and had lots of success (this past winter when I moved here). It should heat up soon with warmer weather.

Resorter,
What do you mean by Stoney Point? I'm trying to learn all the names for these areas..

Thanks, I figured out where Stoney was last night. And your right, the lake is not dead. People always say that and I am not one to believe it. I found some eye's last night anyways! wink.gif

Stoney Point is just west of North Point..there are some reeds that come off it with a underwater rock reef...and W Battle is not dead.. just hard to fish...so much cover and drop offs to fish..but the walleyes you catch will be bigger is size.. seen alot fo 6 -8 pounders come from there...I use to own Sand Bay Resort so got to see some of those lunkers..I'm not much of a walleye fisherman.. perfer bass..but just know where the customers did their fishing...

Sounds great. I'm just a hop, skip and a jump from Battle. I fish it a lot. I'm going to do more 'ski fishing this summer. I can hardly wait for opener.

Check out the Muskie Forum on the "Strange Muskie" I found on Battle Lake a couple days ago. Maybe shed some input?

Yeah, the bass were tough going this past wknd, fished a number of lakes in the area, we caught a lot of bass, but it was definetly a struggle out there. Water temps were still a bit cold id say.

Hey Resorter, I finally have some time to check out the forums. The fishing was slow last weekend but I managed to get one 23 incher. Took a quick picture and let her swim. Even though the fishing was slow, we couldn't complain about the weather.

Every lake we go to we end up catching crappies!! It's ridiculous. I just wish I could get walleyes this easy! smile.gif

Hopefully this weekend I'll put more time on the eyes.

      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.
