      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 .

MY wife she is about 5.4 115lbs and blonde

was she still in the house when you found it

I'm not sure if I tied her or the house down

last nite when I left the lake. Boy it was just plain

to cold outside to spend exta time on minor details.

Maybe I should have put her in front with me and the dog

but the dog takes up most of the extra room.

Well the house is blue with a black bottom. the top flips

over right? You can keep the house please send my wife back COD Thanks

PS send her home soon as the dog does miss her.

PS again must be the cold weather just kidding about the whole deal. I hope who ever lost there house does get it back I'm glad there are still some honest people out there

willing to return things.

Good luck Farmer

Nice to hear of someone finding fishing equipment and trying to find the rightful owners for a change, instead of someone who brags years later, hey, I found a ===== 4 years ago and keep it. I have a one man fish trap and do not like it, if I lost it quite a ways from home ,I probley would not look for it. but then again who knows. wink.gif

farmer boy, I dont quite know when I will send her back, she sure did a stand up job cleaning the big fishhouse and even did the windows , still have a few more odd&ends to do yet, spit a few cords of wood, smoke 100 lbs of carp and made a few gallons of home brew. It could be a couple of weeks yet, let me know if thats a problem.

farmer boy, I had to send her home. She is a good woman, but I could only take so much. No new word on the house, you would think someone would look for it, you all know where it is.

      Here are some of the toads we have been catching on the Rum River this summer.  The biggest has been 19 1/4 inches.

      I agree with rudrave, a boat will open up a lot more opportunities to fish off shore.  You could get a brand new 16 foot fishing boat with a 25 hp motor and a basic sonar unit with trailer for about $10 grand and that sort of rig would get you on a lot of small to medium-sized lakes in addition to rivers around here.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed Hubbard County’s first case of Eurasian watermilfoil, an invasive aquatic plant, in Bad Axe Lake near Emmaville. DNR invasive species specialists confirmed Eurasian watermilfoil around the resort access to the lake. They reported it did not appear to be widespread into other areas of the lake. Eurasian watermilfoil can limit recreational activities on water bodies by forming mats on the water surface, and can alter aquatic ecosystems by displacing native plants. It is typically spread when plant fragments have not been properly cleaned from trailered boats, personal watercraft, docks, boat lifts, anchors or other water-related equipment. Treatment options include selective herbicides and mechanical removal, to minimize the plant’s impact while protecting native aquatic plant species. Treatment is unlikely to eradicate Eurasian watermilfoil from a lake. It may minimize impacts, but rarely prevents broader dispersion within a lake. This new confirmation is a reminder to boaters and anglers to follow Minnesota laws to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species: Clean aquatic plants and animals from watercraft. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keep drain plugs out while transporting watercraft. Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. Details about Eurasian watermilfoil and other aquatic invasive species are available at mndnr.gov/ais. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Did you find any? Let me know where you are located and contact info. Also what size is preferred?

      A popular method that I've seen is to use a slip bobber with minnows, leeches, or crawlers. Four-mile bar seems to be a popular destination but also try working along weed edges. You probably noticed the weedline is about 14' - 15' down so working those edges can be productive. Just my thoughts.
    • BobT
      The purpose for having fuses is to protect the wires and/or downstream devices from over-current situations. When an over-current situation exists the wires can be exposed to higher current than what they are rated to handle and the resulting heat will likely melt the insulation and possibly cause it to burst into flame, which can spread to an on-board fire destroying your boat and everything in it.  A fuse that repeatedly blows when replaced is a good indicator that there is a situation that needs to be resolved. You need to find out what is causing the over-current situation and resolve it. Putting in a higher rated fuse does NOT solve the problem. The wires are rated to a maximum current level and the over-sized fuse will allow excessive current to flow over the wires, which is no better than just getting rid of the fuses. Do not do this.

      Have a great retirement Ace. Really glad to hear you'll still stay on the forum!!

      When CigarGuy first showed up on these forums, I stopped by and introduced myself but I think that he was either on his dock or just hopping into the boat. I haven't visually seen him in a few years, but I did see the Mrs. Cigar Guy and another assembling a sitting bench earlier this summer! Some day I'll stop by to share a cocktail.   As for the people boating in close, here are my two Vermilion observations: 1) There are known spots on Vermilion. People go to those whether there are zero boats or ten boats there. If I am on a known spot, I don't get upset when others show up and fish close. If I am working a non-typical spot and others show up because they see you catch a fish, I do get a bit testy as well. 2) Navigation channels tend to hold fish, attracting boats that are fishing and boats that are moving. As a fisherman, I accept that people are going to boat close by in established navigation paths. I do get upset when people go through tight areas on plane or even just below it. I always try to follow a no-wake policy when going through tight areas such as Fectos or others. Our place is in Black Bay and the pinch between Black Bay and the Partridge River typically has boats. I'll come off plane and go nice and slow past boats. Treat others as you want to be treated. Preaching to the choir....I know
    • rundrave
      move back to SD and then buy the boat You dont need to drop $50k on a new boat just to enjoy the water. I have just as much fun fishing about of a super old $500 aluminum boat with a trolling motor as I do fishing in a fully decked out Ranger. There are of course pros and cons to each but you can fish out of both and that's all that matters. And nothing is better than getting away from shore fishing it just opens up so many more opportunities to catch fish.
