      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 .

Had the trailer lights go out this week end on a fishing trip. No power to the trailer, checked all of the fuses, all were good. Does anyone know if there is an inline fuse somewhere by the mopar plug in on this truck? Thought a short in the trailer lights may have blown a fuse.

Did you check the fuse box under the hood? I believe that there is a fuse for trailer lights in this fuse box. Could be wrong, but check it out.

Kind of funny this should come up (not really funny). I just had the same problem, 2004 1500 Ram except it was only the left brake, blinker light. I spent the better part of a day under the truck to try and find the problem. I had checked the plug and the problem was from the truck side. I then checked the fuses and all were OK. I didn’t want to tap into the truck wires under the truck because I didn’t want to take the chance of loosing my truck brake lights, which still worked. New trucks have too many safety, convenience features that may get screwed up.

I ended up taking it to a Dodge dealer and $150.00 later they said I had a BO module that’s located under the hood. $400.00 later and two weeks of waiting for a very expensive part it was fixed. Total bill $550.00.

It was much cheaper when you just cut into wires and had lights for your trailer.

I had the exact problem too! My vehicle is a 96 acura slx. (basically a Isuzu Trooper dressed up) For me it was the wire harness that contected to the factory plug(5 wires) and converted into a normal four prong plug. There is a little box inline underneath the vehicle that I guess can fry out. It has happened to me and a freind of mine. If that is what it is it is an easy fix, and cheap too $21. Not sure if that is your problem but I thought I would throw it out there. Good luck!!

Okay. I think that may be it, I had power ahead of that inline box and not to the factory plug. Then I have a converter from 5 round to a 4 flat plugged into that. Will need to check that out, did you do it yourself or bring it in?

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
