      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 .

would that be enough thrust for an 18ft boat?

If its not windy or choppy for the 18' boat.

good motors though! Your not going to get any more thrust without going 24V.

Actually Minnkota sells a 55lb thrust transom mount 12 volts. (Maxxum 55T) Going for $359 at Cabelas. (Ouch) For an 18ft boat though, the motor could be used in winds to help slow the boat or control a drift, but as far as backtrolling, I don't think you'd have much success in heavier winds. Thanks for your interest, Junky....

I had a 55 LB Minnkota transom mount on a 16 ft Lund Explorer. It worked OK most of the time. Many new boats in the 17 to 18 foot range still have that size motor. I went to a front mount 50 LB. Works about the same. The 24 volt option adds expense to batteries and more weight.

Thanks for your response Jon. When the conditions are too rough for an electric, hopefully you have the right gas motor to replace.

If I had the cash I would buy the motor in a heartbeat! Its a steal at the price listed!

This motor will work great on everything up to 16', and will push a larger boat, but a person couldnt expect much for performance on a big boat on a windy day. It has plenty of power to push the boats foreward, but it would struggle trying to backtroll in any chop on a larger boat.

These motors also promote excellant battery life(maximizer), and they have the infinate speed control so you dont have to kick between sppeds to get the speed you want. If your using them to hold position, or control a drift.. putt around and cast they will run forever on a decent battery. Its the perfect motor for those fishing the electric motor only lakes with small to mid size boats to boot!

Somebody better jump on this!

Considering trades?

Thanks for the sales pitch TG. wink.gif I know it's a tough decision to buy any electric product used, but, if you see the motor you know it hasn't been used much. I have pics to prove and anyone is welcome to come take a look. Nothing to hide here. I'm in the market for a 2006 Honda 25/30hp prop w/12 pitch. Stainless or aluminum. Could make a deal if someone has one laying around. Thanks again. Junkky....

Send me what pics you have too burchoid at gmail (Contact Us Please)

I just picked up a 17' boat but it came with a 30lb thrust trolling motor (pretty much worthless with anything more than 2 MPH wind)

Thanks!

Did some housekeeping tonight and found 2 Roberts rod holders that I will throw into the deal if you would like. I don't have the holder mounts, but you can buy them seperate. These holders are like new. My loss, your gain. Thank you, Junky...

      Hey I am planning on ice fishing on Lake Minnetonka this winter with a friend and I am using a snowmobile to get to the lake from the trails. I would enter onto the lake in Orono off the Luce line trail and end up in Stubbs bay. I was reading on other forums saying avoid the channels but it seems to be the only way to get around the lake to other bays especially since I am on a snowmobile. I was wondering if they eventually are safe enough to hold up a snowmobile in mid-late January, and if going through them faster helps possibly? I would like to fish around the Smith's bay area and the only way I can do that is going through channels. I know Lake Minnetonka can be sketchy with ice thickness and I don't want to end up through the ice, thoughts? Thanks.   Jim

      The DSL service is great since they ran the fiber down 24 a few years ago.   I was presuming that the poster didn't have that option if they were considering satellite.     AccessMN is another possibility if they are still around.

      OK I will post a report just on the offhand chance that someone else still reads these things.  Fished at Birchdale afternoon of Saturday 10/21 and morning of 10/22.  Fishing was good Saturday for keeper sized fish, nothing big but caught 29 fish in 6 hours,  mostly nice keepers 14 to 19 inches long and not too many dinks.  Sunday morning fishing was slow and then it got super windy so pulled the plug early and went home.  Jigging in shallower spots, could not troll crankbait because of debris on line.  Others had mixed success.  Shiners were around.

      10/22/17     Hunted water in central MN from a boat blind both days. Despite gusty south winds one day and temps not exactly October-like, new ducks were around that moved in during a cold, clear night with a west wind during the week. Calendar migrators from the Dakotas and southern Canada. Saw eleven species and harvested ten--typical late October mixed bag. A mixed, medium-sized decoy spread with a crosswind on a point with the sun behind us was the ticket. An Avery Quick Set blind with fast grass mats and two Lucky Duck HD spinners rounded out the set-up. Subtle mallard quacks, chuckles, and drake whistles mixed with goose clucks, pintail and wigeon whistles locked up birds nice and close--no loud contest calling. Cold weather and West and NW winds this week should get a bunch of new birds in--probably a mixed bag of species still. We saw or heard eight flocks of specklebellies migrating on Sunday. Look for a show about one of these days of hunting on my You Tube channel (Fishing and Hunting the North Country) by later in the week.  Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I pulled my boat for the winter today. Sure hated to have to do that, but have tons of stuff to do to get ready for the fall, winter stuff! Cliff

      Good day!  Keep the reports coming! We’re islanders and had to pull out a week ago. On my last day out by myself I boated a thick 28” walleye to close my season. We brought filets Home so my old fisherman, 95 year old dad could enjoy a good fry,  I still enjoy reading about the lake so keep reporting. Thanks, Dick

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).
