      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 .

Anyone been fishing around the five mile area? Is it easy to access if you drive right out of warroad?

Tried to get to 5 mile on Monday but the breaker was active and we were not able to drive a truck across so I do not know how the fishing was.

Getting out there on sled Monday was decent...on the way in was another story. The ice was active all day (warmer temps and wind) so it wasn't a surprise to see water on the ice at the big heave.

Wish we could have did better fishing to make it worth while. I'm guessing it was big pike snarfed up my white genz worm and straightened the hook out on it. Other than that, no other major action except trying to keep the dinky walleyes off.

I had a close call last Saturday at the pressure ridge going to 5 mile. When we went out in the morning, I drove across the ridge in my F-150 Supercrew (6000 lbs.) and nothing happened. After a phenomenal 5 hours of fishing we had to head out, so we followed our track log back to the same spot we crossed in the morning. The front end of the pickup made it across okay, but the back tires fell into the crack when it opened up. Thank god we had enough speed to bounce out of it. We got out to look and there was water gushing into the hole that we made. I broke off one of the trail markers and drove it into the snow in the middle of the pass so the red Chevy that was still out there wouldn't fall through-that was the only other vehicle out there. Hope they didn't think it was a joke.

Yikes man glad you made her back over OK. Bad, Bad crack out there for sure and crossing such a crack is a day to day, if not hour by hour thing no matter where you're getting across. I've gotten out to 5-mile this year via many different routes across that breaker and none are or have been what I'd call safe. More than once I've had to take a different route off than what we took out.

One had best know their way around just incase you can't get back over where you made it across earlier that day or days prior.

Breaker out of Babs road was impassable today too. Closed at his bridge near Gull Rock. May take awhile too as it was very bad looking.

These tracks and trails that are not 'maintained' by resorts/operators with a handle on day to day ice conditions are ever changing, and no one is there to warn you, or is going to be able to tell you that it's "not safe" to go on out across the cracks. The ice may be 3 foot thick and the reports may be grand but be careful all when it comes to crossing these cracks.

Not advising you 'jigginlow', heck you made it! Just a cautionary bit to all as to the still very hazardous and active breakers on the pond this year.

Babbler closed his bridge? We still have our house out at 16 mile, guess the plans are off for the weekend, or hopefully he will have something in place by then, definitely have to call first. Anymore info is appreciated. Thanks!

      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
