      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 .

New Voyager

Recommended Posts

picksbigwagon

I took a little bit of calling and lot of dumb luck but I now have a Voyager in my garage. Did anyone of you who have bought fish traps before have a hard time getting that piece of black stripping on the back of the sled? It took me longer to get that right than it did getting the rest of the house done. except the seats, those are still waiting to be assembled. I have figured out that Milk crates, not that I have some wink.gif fit right in the back of the sled. Now, what do I need to know before I get it out on the ice monday......any help would be great. I am already planning on getting some red LED rope lights from Home Depot, cutting off the plug and putting on alligator clips for some night time lighting. Thanks for any help you offer, and have a great day everybody, and stay warm........

You said cut off the plug after picking it up at Home Depot..so that is why I am saying this. The rope lighting will need to be 12V, 110V rope will not work. Plus most of that hardware store LED rope is PVC based and will not last in the cold. Avoid the PVC rope it gets as brittle as frozen licorice and the circuit will fail due to separations in the rope.

If your pulling by hand I would get the cover first. But in the near future I would put the Hyfax Runners on it. Even pulling by hand over rocks, blacktop and sand or gravel it will eat up a tub quick.

I am now on the search for a cover....GM in the cities is selectively out. supposedly the ones that are left are going to be distributed to some stores and not others. I am just happy to have the mobility now that I didn't have with the 6800........if anyone see's a voyager cover, let me know....

Fleet Farm in ST Cloud has them, and I also saw them at the St Cloud Gander as well as Sheels. It is the Yukon cover that is tough to find up here.

I have the voyager as well. It took a bit to put it together, but once it is working you will love it! I have the Hyfax and the cover, yet to use either. I pull by hand and put it in my Durango so I will wait till I have the money for that ATV before I worry about it. For me it just seems the hyfax will drag too much for good pulling by hand. I will put them on in a heartbeat if I had an atv. I just us a lantern and it seems to work pretty good. The mobility that this house will give you is awesome!!

I had it out yesterday and you're right, it is awesome. I used to have a 6800 but this thing gives me so much more freedom. I moved 10+ times yesterday, and at no time did I think about not moving like I did with my old houses.....how is the Bear doing this winter. A good friend of mine slayed them on the eagle last week. Of course he didn't take me but he did take my auger, that jerk

Picks,

You can go directly to the clam website and order the cover, the rope lights you are talking about or whatever accessory you are looking for. I just bought a 2 year old voyager and I love the room I have. I haven't seen the need for a cover or the runners yet, but I hand pull like you do. I park on the ice if I can, or I drop it off as close to the ice as I can so I don't have to drag it across the gravel.

You may want to page down and look at the 12-Volt Rope Lights thread for some more ideas for the Voyager. I setup my house with two of the 1156-36 LED square panels and they work great. JWB475's thread has some good info

I have the Yukon cover, and use it all the time. In fact, I never take it off, except while fishing. It keeps the things in the house in the back of the truck.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.
