      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 .

Can anyone give me an idea of where the water temps are at in the Battle lake area?

one word...

COLD!

As i look outside it is snowing and about 24 degrees, the lakes where steeming all day yesterday. Small sloughs that are protected from the wind are froze over. Good news is the weather should turn around and when it does the fish should be on a feeding frenzy....

I was out on Tuesday and the water temp on a smaller lake was at 55-56....I'm guessing low to mid 40's by this weekend.

Wow, it is dropping fast. I took a swim on October 1, and it was still bearable - sort of grin.gif

Thanks guys. I'll be in the area this weekend. It should be interesting to see where the temps are and how the fishing is with the cold snap. I'll be out no matter how cold it gets.

A lot of the small rearing ponds were 39 degrees earlier this week. you can bet that with the wind and cold temps the past few days, water temps will be down dramatically. Some of the small sloughs and had ice on them already.

Hey Skeets, was that you getting off the lake around 1:30 Saturday on Wall? If so I was the guy getting on the lake in the red Triton 186. Fishing didn't get going until 3 when the water warmed a bit. The bass were on the points and rocks in 12-15 FOW.

I pulled out of the lake at about 3PM.

I was in my Lund Pro Angler 16.

I pulled out behind a pontoon, with two dogs taking a cold bath in the water!

I don't remember seeing any other boats on the lake...

Pelican (Ashby) has been locked up with ice for the past few days. The ice won't last long, but it sure is close to locking up for good. I'm thinking 3 weeks until walkable ice. Ice fishing & turkey go good together, right? It's been many of years since that has happened.

Fingers crossed.

Just about everything has opened up again, even the small ponds.

      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"  
    • tacklejunkie
      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
