      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 .

Been trying my hand at cats lately, not a lot of luck. Dam area at bass camp is hit or miss, Root river not much luck either. I grew up in Southern states cats are seem a bit mroe plentiful there are bigger on the average. Guess I got spoiled! lol Been a couple yrs since I hit em hard around here and the ususal holes dont seem to be producing much this summer. Anyone want to get together and try some? I catch n release and dont "steal" fishin holes

Hey ridge! Glad you found us and welcome!

The cattin close to home is mainly channels. The Zumbro does have a population of them, but not as many as the waters down south.

Murphy and I used to catch one or two in the evenings. Once the bats started flying we switched fromm smallies to cats. Cut sucker or mooneye works so does the popular chicken livers.

We never got into any hogs, but they were ok in size.

Mr. Ridge i would like to say welcome to you as well. You have to work a tad for cats but they are out there. I would say spend a little time listening in the cat forum as these whiskers have a pretty big following. I would say your best bet is Redwing. I have fished redwing 5 times in my life and the results have been amazing with several fish over 40lbs. We use live bait with about 5 oz of sinker on the bottom for huge flatties. here is a pic of the one we got last week. And the spot is not a secret so there is nothing for you to steal. The gal caught the fish and it went 52 inches and the guy with the hair is really the angler that put us on these fish looks can be decieving. ike 219096.jpg

Now thats a cat! We used to catch em like that out of the Ohio River and near Salt Fork area in Ohio near West Virginia..I have been fishin cats for 20 yrs so I am not a rookie at it. Just recently started lookin hard for big cats. What kind of hook are you talking about? Hmm Redwing..might have to get down there and look around some.

the hooks we have been using are about the biggest ones we can find in town. We have used Gami Extra wide gap oversized worm hooks and 4/0 circle hooks but i think about a 6/0 octopus circle hook would be the ideal but i can only find those on the internet and not in the store. Good luck i hope you get down there the big boys are in there now. ike

I need to find a place to catch a few bullies as bait. DNR frowns on bluegill use smile.gif

      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.

      There was a musky tourney last weekend, at spring bay.  Some club deal.   I think that might have contributed to the issue.   Normally I am one of few boats out on wakemup fishing walleye.   Like count on fingers of one hand.
