      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 .

The St. Louis is dangerously low,

I totaled my Motor on Saturday in spot that I can usually zip through.

I just wanted to put this out to everyone to help save someone else the trouble.

Man that sucks! Last week I was up above 23 and hit a boulder in a spot that I have never had problems with as well. Put a nice gouge in my skeg and bent up my prop. Good thing I was only going 5 mph with it trimmed all the way up.... crazy.gif

Ya its for sure no place to be runnin if you dont know exactly where to go when the waters low. I crossed some spots that are usually 2-3' deep and they were about 8" now. Be careful up there guys. Use the bowmount in those shallow spots. Sorry to hear about your motor Big! Was that after I left?

The river has this problems when it's low. And the dark water prevents you from seeing the hazards. Remember, it also has a sieche tide, the level varies with atmospheric pressure. On a clear blue day when the pressure is high, the river is likely low because Lake Superior will fluctuate low. The level can change 6" in 20 minutes and as far up as the 23 bridge! That could be just enough to take out the lower unit. Don't believe me? Just cast an eye over to the ruined dock just east of the Bong Bridge and note the level of the water each time you go over. (don't be an inattentive driver, though). You'll see that it does change, even daily, and it has no relation to recent rain.

All my years of duck hunting down there out of a boat blind I've noticed the wind will also play a big factor in levels. West and Nortwest winds drop her low wheres the east and south winds seem to bring her up. I've seen it go up and down a foot 20 times a day.

Dude,

thanks for not calling me and asking me to join you. Thats all i need is to be ordering a new lower unit for my engine.

You going to have that puppy fixed soon? or is it time to upgrade from that 35HP beast?

Whats your boat rated for?

I see a 50HP Merc for sale, 2005 (2 stroke of course) with low freshwater use for 3795 + Shipping (or 4340 new). Dig DEEP in those pockets!
