      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 .

After further investigation,the city has permits to do all this drudge dumping into foster arend.Believe it or not,they say it will settle away in time.A week or so after they quit dumping.They were unaware of the stocking of the fish just before hand,because their contact was done with the dnr in Lake City and there was'nt communication with Crystal springs or the Lanesboro office.The whole thing seems to be one big mess that hopefully won't turn foster into another silver lake! Cause with all that fill it's going to breed alot of weeds!!!! I hope the city is ashamed of the way it's dealing with it's dredging.The one clean clear spring fed fishery we have and they INTENTIONALLY dump crap in it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! confused.gif

Maybee i am wrong but is there not a law that states, for how ever many of wet land acres you fill you have to create new?

I believe there is something like this on the books, but I think the language is such that if you remove or completely fill in a wetland then you would need to set aside a certain amount of acres to establish a new wetland. Technically, the city isn't completely filling anything in, simply dumping dirt in the gaping holes of Foster. While I do not support tarnishing a fishery, the sediment will settle and may make more of the lake fishable in the long run. Just my two cents!

Great leg work Reel Man I've been wondering what was going on.It is amazing what they are trying to do to keep people from drowning out there, in most of the cases the victims were no where near the beach and they were swimming after hours.The only way to keep people from drowning at Foster Arends is to fill the whole thing in and then they'll just go somewhere else frown.gif

By the way Andy, happy birthday.

I do have sympathy for all the people that have drowned in fosters but arent the majority of them teenagers that were out having a few drinks for the night? I mean by all means I can't say that i havent done it but if thats the case you just need to be smart about what your doing and know that the lake has springs and will be cold water along with the fact that it has a designated swimming area. An alternative to that may be to enforce the ten oclock closure of the beach onto the whole area of the lake rather than trying to shallow the place up.

      Fuses are blowing for a reason most likely an undesirable reason. Much better solution to fix the problem than eliminating the fuse. Eventually the sort or item causing the fuse to blow will eventually make it to the wires. Just a thought, although not recommend, there is enough battery current where you can stick weld 11 gage steel with a 12 volt battery. Continued or prolonged welding (same as a short) could cause to battery to explode. Word of caution, led acid batteries are filled with sulfuric acid.

      I agree with del, used boats are more than adequate. I bought a 1990 Crestliner Sport for $5,100 in 2013. Did some floor and live well work, added co-pilot to the trolling motor, Vexilar SonarPhone connected to my iPad, and a tablet with the Navionics Boating App for GPS. Welded verses rivet hull was my desire. Tops out at 43 mph with 115hp merc 2 stroke. Handles the 4' Ottertail waves quite well. Picture of boat on Ottertail which I fish several times yearly along with other Ottertail County lakes and lakes closer to home I frequent often. At 73 its easy to launch / take-out. Look for a family owner, one that uses the boat once or twice a month the boat/motor will have limited hours of use on it. In my opinion the used boat is the only way to go.

      Here's a quote from the MinnKota digital onboard charge manual. "INLINE FUSE The output cord has an inline fuse on the RED end. The fuse serves as protection from surges and short circuits caused by a damaged charger output cable. If a fuse blows, replace it with a 30 amp ATC 32V automotive fuse. Improper battery connections will normally not cause a fuse to blow since this is handled by the internal circuitry of the charger."

      That was my son cooking up my birthday dinner!  I'm older and have more grey hair (a lot more) than dark.  Be sure to say "hello-I'm Del"  if you see me!  Will be back up for a few extra days over Labor Day.

      There was a musky tourney last weekend, at spring bay.  Some club deal.   I think that might have contributed to the issue.   Normally I am one of few boats out on wakemup fishing walleye.   Like count on fingers of one hand.
