      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 .

PETA's latest idiocy

Recommended Posts

Here's the latest from tonights evening news:

There is now a movement afoot to allow individual animals to be represented in US courts by attorneys. This means that suit could be brought on behalf of a labratory animal by animal rights activists in the courts of this country. The activist being interviewed on TV said :
(I paraphrase) "Because the chimpanzee has the same cognitve ability as an average 4 year old they should be granted the same rights to legal redress as that 4 year old."

He is not alone in his views. Larry Tribe (Harvard Law) is in agreement. He saw no reason why animals should not be granted legal rights similar to humans, including the ability to sue for monetary damages!

In my opinion, this is the perfect example of why the animal rights movement is so insidious and dangerous. This law, if enacted, would allow animals to bring suit against their owners. Under current law animals are considered property. The jist of the story was how some wackos are trying to make the connection in the mind of the public between the terrible institution of slavery and the practice of using animals in medical testing.

Of course, the vast majority of folks will just laugh this off as the latest screwball idea of the PETA crowd, but it does scare me to think that this story is considered important enough to make the 5:30 evening news. Just imagine a world where your black lab has the same rights in court as you do! Think about being sued by your gold fish!

Worst of all, if a chimp can sue for financial damages, how far behind will the call be for the same rights to be given to farm animals, wild game, and fish?

Sssshhh. If my dog gets wind of this, I'll be serving him T-bones from the grill every night (of course only if the cow doesn't sue me first). I'll have to sell my kid just to feed him. Then my kid will turn around and sue the dog for stealing his bed. And if I know my dog, he'll counter sue in order to cover the court cost. oh man, stop me!

This ought to bung up the court system enough to cost all the tax payers a pretty penny. I'm sure every american would rather have our taxes pay the court appointed lawyers for "Fido" and "Fluffy" than protect the citizens from terrorists.

"Animals as slaves" Lets take a quick poll of all the PETA members that utilze a seeing eye dog, or ever required the assistance of a rescue dog. How many required serum from a snake bite? And then we'll ask how many are from another planet (I bet we get some takers on the last one).

All creatures of the Earth are created to serve man. Man, created in the image of God, has rights over and above all creatures of Earth. Reference the Bible.

so IF the chimp were to prevail in this suit...and there is any $'s left after the lawyer's cut....how and what will he/she spend it on?....Easy to get the chimp a credit card...so then a bank account?...some form of ID...then probably be able to vote, too. There are fundamental differences between humans and animals....reference the biblical quote above. Let's hope this one is thrown out!

      See you next year, we are pulling out this week and it sounds like you were only up for the weekend.   Sorry I didn't quite have the nerve to climb the steps and introduce myself.   I guess I am not big on just showing up at the door. 
    • Surface Tension
      Lester River-McQuade area.   Last time out we found bait and Lake Trout 100-120'  taken off downriggers and stacked lines over 145-175' of water.  That can change day to day so keep an eye on the sonar.   Silver Flasher w/Fly, Water Mellon, Monkey Puke, Silver w/green/blue crushed ice spoons working well for us.  Last 2 times out were during midday and bright skies trolling around 2 MPH.   If you put in at Rice's Point bring rubber boots and watch your step as the beginning of the dock is under water.

      So all 3 banks are blowing fuses with the charger outside the boat hooked to a battery with nothing else connected to it?   Try a different battery.  If your still blowing fuses I wouldn't use the charger.

      Labor day will be a busy weekend.  If you are around after the weekend, Maybe we can grab a beer.  I was going to say the landing, but maybe something else....WBL?

      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.
