      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 .

Otter Tail is still on fire! Went out for 3 hours over the weekend and caught 22 eyes between my dad and I. I found them in places where I usually catch them in the summer and fall. 8-15 feet at night, 9-10 feet during the day. Caught two very nice ones at 2:00 in the afternoon

What presentation worked best for all your success? I fished out there too and it was a real tough bite. For everyone else I talked to it was slow for them also.

The night bite is great, but during the day it's been kinda tough for me. Leeches haven't done anything, jigs and minnows have been my choice.

I haven't heard of many fishermen having too much trouble on Otter Tail so far this year. I have a large fish gut freezer over flowing to prove it. We have seen many walleye's in the 17-19 inch range. During the day the 9 to 12 feet is the key.

Minnows are always key in the first few weeks of open water. Shiners are the bait of choice. The local guides say that as long as the bait shops can stock shiners, the walleye can get them too and that is what you will want to use.

If you are interested in testing your skill on Otter Tail Lake, we have some cabins open the next few weeks.


Good Luck Fishing!

during the day, I fished with a 6 foot lindy rig, plane hook, and shiner. My dad caught just as many as I did with a leech. I was suprised!

Is it crankbait time out there yet???? I'm looking to try my new boards and line counter reels. Any suggestions or spots to try pulling boards on OT would be helpful. I've heard Balmoral and Amor Flats are excellent after sun-down. Do these get weedy later in June? What depth should I look for? I imagine you should hang pretty tight to the breakline. Thanks.

Greenwood flats is my hotspot for crankin. I usually don't do it till the bite slows down in July. THere are some weeds by then, but I stay in 11 feet and cover a lot of area. I have never used boards out there, but I am sure they would work great.A fun thing to do in the dog days of summer.good luck

Thanks, Bucktail.

Do you have better luck out there before or after dark?

      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?

      Caught some gills this was the first one

      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!
