      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 .

I was out there on thursday afternoon.I drove out of hartys and headed up to the north end. Decided not to fish there . On the way back to more southern parts of the lake I noticed a small "buckle" and a darker section of ice that was about as wide as a road and extended from the point where the "smurf" house pretty much all the way to the east shorline. I stopped and walked over to check it out as I didnt notice it on the way to the north end and drove acrossed it. I was planning on drilling holes from west to east to find a spot I like to try but as I looked a couple hundred yards or so to the east, i swear I saw a couple of thin ice signs. They looked to be a little north of the mission farm towards the east side. I got back in the truck and went all the way to the point near the above said house to go around as much as possible. We fished out in the main lake but saw a couple of vehicles flying across the lake not too far from where the signs were.

All that being said, I guess it doesnt surprise me that someone went through. Which news had the report?

I can not believe that someone was dumb enough today to drive right up to the whole that the truck fell through last night but justice prevailed, they fell through. I'm sorry if that sounds cold hearted but DUH!

Apparently the guy drove right through the thin ice signs and fell in the same hole! He must be from Stearns County wink.gif

Well, I will be holding back on what I think is the lack of intelligence and common sense. The first guy who went through is a long tome friend and I ache for what he went through. The second guy was bombed at 10:30 in the morning. I heard he blew a .26. He has been a problem out here and elsewhere for years. I'll leave it at that, needless to say he has not been welcomed at my shop for years.

I can understand the first guy. Terrible accident. The second??????? Kinda make me say Hmmmmm. I hope he gets evrything possible thrown at him. Dui, reckless endangerment, ect. Its one thing that they put thier own lives at risk, but what about any rescue attempters. I know I could just sit and watch if I saw someone go threw. I would try to help asap. But I would be P.O.ed to find out he was bombed and put me in a situation because of stupidity.

As soon as I saw Joes open water report I told my wife some one would go thru tomorrow.

      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?

      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

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.
