      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 .

My dog had it before she could be vaccinated for it. It took a LONG time for all of the effects to go away even after the treatments. So it is 3 weeks of tetracycline, right? If it is shorter then you may not be getting it totally gone and it comes back over time. Or you are in a hot bed of deer tick land. It is about time again for them to be out in force.

Burl, my lab tested positive when he had his first test as a pup. He always tested positive but he did have two hunting seasons when he wasn't feeling well and we put him on antibiotics and a steroid. The symptoms went away but he still tested positive.

As far as I know, the Lymes test isn't specific to test if your dog has Lymes, but rather that it's 'Titer" (sp?) is elevated. This is how they judge if our dog has Lymes disease. But the titer may be elevated from something else.?

Good Luck!

Hi Burl,

My young setter contracted lymes when he was a pup. Treated him and was doing fine for a while and then the symptoms came back. Treated again and the vet said that it wouldn't pay to do a precautionary lymes test in the future since it would always most likely show a slight positive. He said we should just use symptoms such as sore joints etc. as an indicator of whether the lymes has returned and then do a test if the symptoms do come back. So far in almost 2 years it hasn't been back.

I was just thinking the other day how I haven't seen any deer ticks like I usually do the first part of September. Then, last night, I checked the dog and he had about 10 deer ticks on him. The cool weather must be bringing them back to life in the brainerd area.

Time to get out the frontline for the fall.

I have a friend, he had a black lab, this dog used to love hunting, fetch, and playing, especially with kids. She had fallen to Lymes disease, when he noticed that she was not well, he brought her in they tried everything, nothing worked. She passed away a couple months later, she had the drunken dog syndrome, it was really sad to see her in this condition. My inlaws had a dog that contracted Lymes as well, and it went through the exact same cirumstances. It was much smaller I do not remember the mix. One lived in Coon Rapids, the other in Warroad.

      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?

      Thank you one and all, especially you Tommy. Some very kind words and ditto to you my friend. "Ace" "It's just fishing man"

      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
