      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 .

It also has gator rope locks in the back corners and front for anchors and drift bags. Boat is in good shape, motor runs great. It is a merc and they are all cold blooded at first, they have to warm up to run real good. I also put in a Aireator pump in the live well for keeping bait and fish alive with out running the fill pump.

2005 River Pro Jet boat, 175 hp inboard jet, fishing

Vehicle Description

HIGH PERFORMANCE JET BOAT FOR SERIOUS RIVER FISHERMEN

2005 River Pro Jet boat with a 175 Merc. Sport jet V6 oil injected. This boat is made of alumimun throughout. Hull is 3/16 thick and double hulled down the center. 17.6 long but mesures 19 feet from tip to end of rear deck. Shorlander trailer rated for 3,000 pounds. Bunk trailer. This boat was used for two summers. Works great and runs great. This boat can run through only inches of water. This is a Team River Pro guide boat. I use it for catfishing on many rivers near here. The only down side of owning a boat like this is stopping to get gas, Every one will want to talk to you about your boat. Add extra travel time to allow for bragging up your boat.

Hours on the motor is a very common question, and very hard to give an answer to. Catfishing is most of the time anchored fishing. Motor time is just drive time to and from. All I can tell you for sure is the motor runs great, works great and needs nothing but water to run in. The boat is in great shape and works awesome in rivers and smaller lakes. I had no troubel takeing this boat to large water such as Lake of the Woods. It is a flat bottom jet and it will be a much rougher ride on rough water. Easy clean up and maintenance, no winterizing needed, pull it out of the water fog it and park it.

As for delivery, if your serious about a river fishing boat and want to be riding in the best out there, contact me and we can see about delivery or meeting half way depending on your location or buyer pick up. I highly recomend that I demo the boat for the buyer due to the unique handling and performance of the boat.

I am a Pro-Staff with River Pro and I assure you these boats are top of the line and you will have a hard time finding a used River Pro boat out there. Most people keep them and run them until they wear them out, which is a very long time. This boat has a 9 degree hull and can manover just like a jetski, fishing, skiing, tubeing, and just playing are many of the uses for such a boat.

That’s RiverPro®. Built tough, these all-welded, all-aluminum fishing machines offer the ultimate in shallow water, Mercury® Jet Drive performance. There's only one reason they build RiverPro aluminum jet boats. To get you to the fish, wherever they go on the river. Shallow rocks. Skinny inlets. Stump-infested backwaters. There's no place they can hide. Check out our line of tough aluminum jet boats and see why serious river rats from North to South are buzzing about RiverPro. Want to know the secret behind RiverPro’s incredible strength and performance? Its called PST™ - Pre-Stress Technology™ and it’s what every RiverPro jet boat goes through before it ever hits the water. CAD designed and plasma-cut by computer, each hull component is subjected to a rigorous pre-stressing process before welding. The aluminum is precision-curved, stretched and pulled, resulting in up to 30% lighter weight, while maintaining superior strength and rigidity. While some aluminum boats rely on “foam sandwich” construction to support the hull, RiverPro’s pre-stressed, all-welded hulls deliver far better performance and durability as one integral unit. Stable. Solid. Hard-bellied, all-welded aluminum cat ‘n bass boats, powered by Mercury’s Sport Jet® drive that lets you fly over just inches of water.

Ok, I have to hop in on this one... This boat is nothing short of amazing! We went on a guided fishing trip with Whiskers, and after catching the fish all I wanted to do was ride around in the boat and cruise up and down the river!! We had a blast and this boat rocks! WOW I still can not believe how versatile this boat is. No need to worry about sunken logs, or an occasional shallow sandbar. If you have any doubt, have him take you for a ride! grin.gif

      That's understandable given how you use the back reel technique.  I haven't used it the same way. Most of my trolling is done with baitcasters or levelwinds with counters.  The jigging part I hadn't considered before. "David, have you ever parred with a 7 iron?" "Well, Roy, it never occurred to me to even try."

      An independent laboratory has confirmed zebra mussel larvae in Garfield Lake in Hubbard County. The lab provided photos of two zebra mussel larvae, called veligers, found in a water sample taken from the lake. Property owners on Garfield Lake hired the lab as part of their own monitoring. Invasive species specialists from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources found no zebra mussels in the lake during a six-hour dive survey. Garfield Lake will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species, Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations. Look on the posts, wheels and underwater support bars of docks and lifts, as well as any parts of boats, pontoons and rafts that may have been submerged in water for an extended period. Minnesota law requires that docks and lifts be allowed to dry for at least 21 days before being placed in another body of water, whether aquatic invasive species are present or not. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species that has not already been confirmed in a lake. More information is available at www.mndnr.gov/AIS. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      City may apply for DNR pilot project treatment The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed zebra mussels in Lake Marion, in the city of Lakeville, in Dakota County. Five adult zebra mussels were found at the public access by a lake consulting business, as part of an early detection monitoring program conducted for the city of Lakeville. The city may apply for a pilot project treatment after a more thorough search of the lake is completed. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations.

      Extensive multi-agency search showed no other zebra mussels The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed that a single zebra mussel was removed from Lake Harriet in Minneapolis. Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) staff reported one adult zebra mussel on a boat cover recovered from the bottom of the lake. No additional zebra mussels were found during 67 hours of diving, snorkeling and wading searches involving the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, MPRB, two MPRB contractors and the DNR. Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. “We’re grateful that no zebra mussels were found during the extensive dive, snorkel and wading search of Lake Harriet,” said Heidi Wolf, DNR invasive species unit supervisor. “Strong partnerships and interagency cooperation are key, and we thank the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District for their ongoing efforts. “While we regret that Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List because one zebra mussel was confirmed, we’re hopeful that the lake may be removed from the list if future searches continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake,” Wolf said. DNR invasive species specialist Keegan Lund said Lake Harriet will be carefully monitored the rest of this season and next year, but no treatment is necessary at this time. Lund said individual zebra mussels sometimes die after they are brought into a new lake, before they become established. “There is a common misperception that zebra mussels are everywhere and that their spread is inevitable. The reality is, of Minnesota’s 11,842 lakes, fewer than 250, about 1.8 percent, are listed as infested with zebra mussels. More Minnesotans than ever before are following our state’s invasive species laws,” Lund said. “People spread zebra mussels, and people can prevent their spread.” Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water.

      I fish the big water of Minnesota side of Lake of the Woods almost exclusively and purchased my boat with what I will call "truck suspension" shock absorbing seats at the helm (first row).   In the waves of LOW, these will bottom out and your back still takes a pounding.   I am planning to replace the helm seats (will need seats, pedestal and base) with one of the above mentioned shock absorbing pedestals next spring.   My boat does have high sides so will need a taller pedestal. Looking for others to comment on their experiences with these.   Thanks.
    • Meterman
      I have typically used the back reeling feature more for letting out line when trolling or jigging.   When fighting a fish, I let the drag take care of business.   I guess it is just a pain to now get used to no back reeling on a new reel . . . may have to switch to another brand?

      Well, fishing wasn't very good. But the weather certainly didn't help. Fished caribou the first day, marked lots of cisco and lakers, but no bites. Planned on bluewater on Monday, but because of the wind, we took the channel to trout instead. Caught several nice bluegills and a 30 inch pike. No lakers, but I did get stuck in weeds in 35 ft of water, never had that happen before. Was going to launch at same access on wabana on Tuesday, and go to bluewater, but wind was even worse. We took a drive and went up to Larson lake. Lost a nice pike, but nothing else. Thought for sure I'd at least catch 1 splake! Survived the storm that night. Stopped at pokegama on way home and fished for a couple hours. Lost a muskie, and had a big pike break my line. My son was really excited to catch his first rock bass. It would be nice to come back someday, but it might be awhile. Caribou could be good in the winter, maybe. Oh well. Final camping trip of the year is in the books!

      Any bass reports?  Have the walleyes been moving in shallow at night?  South wind I am guessing their is fish on the south side of pine? 24-32 feet sounds like right in front of the cabin.  Any in crawlers or have they transitioned to minnows.  Did well in 18 feet last weekend.  No matter what cannot wait for 3 solid days of fishing!!!
