      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 .

Welcome Sucka-Our newst Forum Guide Pro

Recommended Posts

I'd like to personally welcome Derek "The Sucka" as our newest Forum Guide Pro at Fishing Minnesota.

Here is a little about him:

He's always ready to get out on the water. He's a young buck going on his 25th year of fishing. As for patterning his fishing techniques he's only been doing that for about 13 years.

Rivers have always been his love. He makes a trip to lakes once in a while, but his true passion is in current.

The Mississippi and the St.Criox are such ancient and incredible fisherys that they attract most of his attention.

He loves to take people fishing and love it when people with him catch fish. He's always willing to give advise or listen to a tip relating to fishing.

He would like to spend some more time down on pools 3 and 4 and learn the fisherys there too.

His areas of proficiency lie on the Mississippi River between the Ford Dam to a little below downtown St.Paul and Marine to Kinnikinnic on the St. Croix River.

Derek will be here often to help all of us river buffs and share info along with our veteran Turk and Crappie Getter.

The Sucka really enjoys exchanging good fishing information to make those River Trips more enjoyable.

Welcome Sucka!!!

Goodfishin : )

Welcome aboard "The Sucka". I have been following your reports and it seems you know a thing or two about these rivers we all love!! I'm sure you will make a good addition as a moderator. Someday us moderators(and anyone else for that matter) should hook up on the river and wet a line. I have been talking to Turk a little bit about getting out but I have been busy hopefully sometime in Sept.

Good fishing to all!!

Welcome aboard Sucka! I will keep an eye out for you on the Croix. I don't get out there as often as I wish to anymore, but I really enjoy that awesome and diverse fishery so close to home. Quite honestly, I spend more time out there in the winter than the Summer. If you smell venison brats cooking over a propane heater, it's most likely me! Stop by for one!

Thank you all for the warm welcome mat! I hope I can help anyone catch fish as much as Crappie Getter and Turk have on the Croix.

I've seen some good posts from all of you that replied here. This really is a special forum to be a part of and I know it has helped me in my fishing as well as broadened my horizons on locations around the state.

Gem-Eye, you're the first person I've actually fished with from the boards here since I've started posting, thanx!

Rick, thanx for the bump, I'll try not to let you down! I have been trying to get out as much as possible just so I can come back home and report, heh heh!

See ya all on the water!!!!

      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
