      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 .

What size jigs are being used on the river right now? with the current down I was wondering if smaller jigs would be the ticket, Will be up this weekend and just wondering what size I need to bring.

Thanks!

Bring the whole arsenal of jigs. As a general rule, use as light a jig as you can keep vertical. Keeping it vertical seems to be the key. You can also get away with using lighter jigs if you slip the current in the river, which is my favorite technique and usually works well. wink.gif

I always have jigs in the 1/4th oz. to 1 oz. with me. As for colors I like white, gold,silver, orange, chart, pink and at times blue. The glow white northland jigs with red eyes seem to be on my line quite often. Gold is always a good color up there.

Dont be afraid to try some plastics. Paddle tails, power shiners and even ring worms will all catch you fish. White twister tails and double twisters have been very good too. Either slip drift or anchor up on a break or bend. Also trolling cranks can be good at times as well but when you find a spot that you get fish in regularly stop and drift or anchor on it.

Adding rattle collars to a light jig can give it that just enough weight to not have to upsize plus the sound can really be a factor, I've had days when a rattle collar was domating. I've been wanting to try plastics but just cant seem to break away from jiging. Also a foam walker with a 14" snell an a tiny spinner can be deadly. I really like to sit upstream of a small depression an anchor all day an let the pods of fish come to me. If I move i feel I'm missing potential fish. But sometimes ya have no choice either.

      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
