      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 .

We returned on July 22nd from a week on 3rd. We didn't fish 4th at all, but fished 3rd the most and a little on 2nd. We had very good luck with bass, crappie, and northern, with a few walleye.

Most of the bass were on plastic worms and spinnerbaits and some topwater baits. The last morning, my cousin boated 2 that pushed 5 lbs each. We fished mostly the islands and weedbeds on 3rd, then down the end of 2nd as it enters the river to go to 1st.

Crappie and bluegills we found on the southeast shore near the reeds and around the small island in about 8 to 12 feet of water with minnows and small jigs. We fished a lot for these since the entire family was on vacation.

We caught more northerns than usual - trolling cranks or minnows or leaches around the islands and the points on the south end. Largest was around 31 inches or so. One HOT afternoon may father and I boated 3 in about an hour, all between 24 and 28 inches, with several others that didn't make it to the boat. He went back out a little later and caught a couple more. We started walleye fishing, but the northerns kept biting the line, so we switched tactics a little and had a good afternoon. Walleye action was slow. Temps were in the upper 90s to start the weekend, then cooled some the rest of the week. We didn't target walleyes much as a result.

Coming back in the end of September for 3 or 4 days.

      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?

      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
