      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 .

I have a Minnkota Maxxum 65SC foot contol bow mount 42" shaft trolling motor for sale. It came off my bass boat which is a 2002 but has only seen two years of use. It is a 12/24 volt system but is right now only set up as a 24 volt system. The only reason I am selling it is because I replaced it with one that has universial sonar. $300 or best offer. Any question you can email me at pmuggli@yahoo.com or call me at 507 661 0840 I am in the Waterville area

Here is a picture of it on my boat.

Say I have a few questions. How long is the shaft on that motor? You can adjust the height anyway right? Does it have any slide on bracket that you need for mounting? Is it easy to change it to a 12 volt system or would it just not have enough power w/12? And finally....would you convince my wife I need a new trolling motor? LOL My wife is better with bottom line pricing, so if ya want to e-mail me what that might be, I will put the address at the bottom.

I will be in Mankato this weekend, if she says yes I will get ahold of you before then.

Have a good one!

I forgot to put the shaft lenght in before but it is in there now but antways it is 42". I would not run it just as a 12 volt system not enough power. If you do alot of fishing 24 volts is the only way to go. The base of the trolling motor is the mounting bracket

Does it have the same style plug as other Minnkota, such as the 765? Is the mount base similar to accept the slide mount?

This trolling motor was set up with Marinco plug, but if your trolling motor was a 24 volt system you can take the plug off of it. Minnkota make two different removable bases one for the maxxums and one for autopilots. Give me a call if you have more question or are interested.

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.
    • ANYFISH2
      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?
    • ANYFISH2
      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.
