      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 .

Last St.Louis River Open Water Report for 06

Recommended Posts

Well not much to report. Hit the Barkers Island/Bay area today. Got out about noon and just got back. Needless to say I got it handed to me.

Trolling Bombers on the Channel edges only produced 1 small pike and a Ski that wasnt much bigger than the pike, maybe 30" or so.

Tossed out BOTH drift socks and drifted different jigs/plastics in several "Fishy" areas and depths for 2 hours and didnt get a nibble.

Went to the hot pond and got 1 fat ugly stinky cat and 2 nice 17-18" eyes.

Dropped out of the hot pond into the channel edges and drifted some jigs with not even a bite.

Coffee got cold and wind picked up so I called it a open water season.

Til next open water season guys. See ya on the ice.

Man I dont think I want to know. I cant buy a new Lund because they will only put those Black busted buggers on them now. Looks like I have to go win the Lotto and buy that dang Triton I saw at the boat show. Then I would have to build a new or another garage. Man I need to win that Lotto!!!

Maybe I have a long lost rich relative waiting to will me millions of dollars?

Oh well back to work tomorrow. frown.gif

Well, you can also put silver on the back of a Lund for next year without paying the premium for rerigging. In fact you can get it prerigged even for Honda. I was checking on a 18' fisherman with a 150 and 8 honda, this was my next step up but they eliminated the fisherman series for '07??????? Glad to hear that you had some action for your efforts, see ya on Fish.

Taking the Mrs up to Larsmont tomorrow night for an anniversary dinner prepared by Cheffrey, and licking my chops already grin.gif

I've been quietly mourning the loss of summer. I put the rig to bed last Friday jsut before it really began to rain on me. It wasn't fun. Steve at least you made it a little later into the year than I did. I thought I'd have a couple of Novembe outings, but I got a wild hair and sighted in the muzzloader last Saturday, guess I'll try to go shoot a deer now instead.

Saturday may have been my last trip out also. Tried the Moose Lake area for some largemouth but very little luck with only 2 fish. Water was around 38-39 degrees. Mild temps may keep a few lakes open this week so I may get one more weekend in but who knows.

      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
