      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 .

It seems that when people post question regarding catching catfish on the st. croix, nobody seems to know where to fish for them. Even people who think that they know the st. croix like the back of their hand. I guess when people don't get paid for their services, they become mute.

I thought this forum was for people like myself to obtain guidance to enjoy the great fishing the st. croix has to offer. Not for posting guide for hire.....if you can't provide answer...get off the boat.

upset fisherman....

I recommend contacting Turk at Croixsippi.com! Depending on how busy he is etc, it shouldn't take him too long to help you out with some info!!! He's the man that can!!

Please take into consideration that those in the know are very busy people like yourself and will get info to you as soon as they can! Again, contact Turk directly! good luck out there!!!

Most guides I know (and yes I've fished with Turk) spend a considerable amount of time researching, exploring, pre-fishing etc...
It's the way they make their living. For them to share everything (without being hired) would seem foolish to me.
Here's how I learned about the 'Croix. I bought a "Hot Spots" map and fished from shore at several locations. Then I hired Turk and fished with him 2 times last year and once this year. It's been well worth the investment. Do I know everything? Not even close. But I like my chances more and more every summer. Do a little exploring, for pete's sake.

Hi fisher,
Turk gives plenty of great free advice in this forum. He does work and is not on here as much as he would like at times. This is also your very first post.

Try to calm yourself rather than being upset. Most of the folks here really would like to help you out.

We are like a big family here and we welcome you as part of it as well. Respect, humor, and consideration are important parts of our interaction.

There are others who give info as well here. Remember, this forum is free and the tips are free. They are still no substitute for time exploring and having fun on the water.

The folks who help in this forum spend huge amounts of time learning their waters and spend a lot of money learning it. Then they help folks like you for free.

Remember they do work and they do take vacations, so please consider that before getting too upset.

I'm sure someone will help you here, just a little patience is needed sometimes.

They really do enjoy helping folks "Have More Fun" on the waters they know about.

Anyone out there who can help fisher out with catfish tips on the Croix?

Take care and enjoy fisher.

GoodFishin : )

All,

If I've missed a direct question sorry, also I moderate this site, it turns out I answer lots of the questions but I'm not the only on that can... I know anglers on the Croix that are excellent anglers... as far as taking a shot at me, I just like equal footing, meaning you know who I am and I don't know who you are, it appears a bit cowardly to this river rat...
I'm happy when others catch fish, and I answer the questions that come to my attention. One sucky thing about guiding is that half the guys like you the other half really don't...
Just remember this is a free site, and in life you get what you pay for (no insult intended).
Keep Catchin'
Turk

side note tip - rising water and lowering water means fish movement, be prepared to work.

      Wasn't sure, but I found it. looked like  you were cooking something on the grill.

      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
