      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 .

Turnover underway. . . .

Was out all day today on some area lakes alot were showing consistent temp's top to bottom +/- 1 degree per 30 feet. All lakes we fished displayed very poor visibility at all depths - figures this would happen the week I'm back in town - however we did manage a couple of 'eyes in 30 feet with redtails and black jigs (would've been better with something cheaper anyone know how to tie a Redtail Fly? smile.gif No wall hangers however.

Looking at the temp's for the week the turnover should be complete by next week so all of you darn locals can get out and hit it for the big hogs!!!

Good luck to anyone who's out this week.

We'll be on Pelican, Middle, Franklin, and maybe even Big C. tomorrow to soak sore wounds from today.

Stop by and say hi if your on the water. -->

Alumacraft tourney pro, 60 yam., minnkotas all the way around. and Huge freakin VHF antennae for aesthetics.

I'm thinkin I shoulda brought the fly rod back as the walleyes may not cooperate.

Please let me know what these lakes look like as I am trying to figure out where to go this weekend. Has anyone heard anything about Cotton?

Pelican all day today. You know that feeling you get when your going to head back to the east access from the west side and you've had a so so day across all the spots that you fished for .5 hours? Yeah I got it as we were heading back to the access to head to Middle Corm. Veered of course and decided to hit another hole. We fished deep break lines and yieled a pretty good bag of eyes. You name it -wait okay up to 20" this is pelican of course- it was there and hungry. After filleting we found they were all empty (probably obvious but sometimes there's a surprise inside:) you know like the stuff in Fruit Loops.

I wouldn't say that the fall bite is on right now but it's definately coming soon. Clarity on Pelican was alright - although it was about 10x better than the lakes we fished on Mon. I think it'll turnover - this weekend. Which should make fishing pretty great next wednesday or maybe later in the week when I'm sitting in a meeting back in CO - oh well it's always a gamble. Tomorrow hmm don't know where I'll go but it'll probably be after hogs in the Park Rapids area smile.gif Good luck to anyone whose out tomorrow.

Ditched the idea to head to Park Rapids area (was probably a bad idea) and decided to get a cabin at Mcardles Resort for Wednesday - Friday and fish on Winnie and Cass. Winnie was slow for us but there were alot of eyes' being caught in other places on the lake (definately not a deep bite lake) if you head up that way think super shallow. Decided to hit Cass this A.M. with a few eyes on the usual redtails and shiners. Anyhow if any of you guys on the DL forum are thinking bout a quick trip (if its to the Rainy just stop reading this now and get in your truck, aim north and drive like H E and a couple hockey sticks!!!) Don't rule out something to Winnie over the next couple weeks all the resorts cater to fishing so do it up and head out.

Still the last couple days of this trip have proven that the best bite is probably due this next week.

Good luck.

Thanks,

      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.
