      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 .

Wow. This looks like a perfect set up for someone looking to get a rig for a reasonable price point. I don't think this will last long.

Here’s some pictures of Chad’s boat. Note that the trolling motor pictured is what was on the boat last season and not the upgraded one that will be included. You’ll get both if you’re the lucky buyer.

And the motor…..

With the upgrades that Chad had done on this boat…Eagle electronics, new trolling motor, completely rewired boat…he’s underselling it at $1700. That’s over $500 in basically brand new equipment in the electronics and the trolling motor. Plus a completely rewired boat and a motor that’s in great shape. I was in the boat last summer and the motor ran flawlessly. Also, this boat has interior lighting that I was very impressed with. I wish I had these lights in my own boat! If you’re out after dark or in low light conditions, these interior lights are great. They don’t look like much. But when you turn them on you will be very impressed by how much light they give off. And it’s in the interior of the boat only. It’s not going to spook fish by light out on to the water. So if you’re interested, I’d jump on this while it’s still for sale. Anyone looking for a good starter boat, you'll be hard pressed to find a better deal.

Hey Aaron,

Thanks for posting the pics of Chad's boat. I just want to point out to everyone that these are pictures of the boat right after he bought it, since then the boat has been cleaned up, re-wired, and I forgot the trailer had new bearings and seals last spring also.

You and I are going to have to talk to Chad about a fee for selling this rig for him. Maybe a day of musky fishing on him for you and I. You are right someone is going to get a good deal on this rig.

Thanks again.

If I had a place to put it I would take it right now! That is what I have been looking for to upgrade my duck boat. Man I wish I had the room.

LovinLifeGuy,

I bet I could get Chad to throw in a tarp for you. This would make a good duck boat upgrade.

Wow, sounds like Chad really wants to get this one off his hands so he can get that new boat in the garage! He's asking LESS than he paid for the boat a year ago and the boat is definitely worth more than it was when he got it. Completely rewired, new electronics, new trolling motor. You're getting a very good value on this one. Make sure to get in touch with Chad for more info!

Is this boat still available? If so, should the info. at the beginning of this thread be used to get a hold of the seller? Thanks.

Give Chad a call or shoot him an email. It's still available and all of his contact information is in the first post. I'm really surprised it's still available. For a starter boat with a 40 HP motor in very good condition, a price like this won't come around very often.

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.

      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.

      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
    • CigarGuy
      Del, are you done up here for the year?  Missing the best part of the year!  If you see me on the dock or out on the lake..say hi!  I wouldn't just drop in and introduce myself either-not my style.  Don't have to worry too much about anybody climbing the mountain to do that

      About 69 this morning.... And this concludes my reporting until sometime in 2018, Lord willing. But I will still be watching....
    • delcecchi
      I will add that it is nothing like the old days when throwing a marker was practically life threatening..... But that is west end.   If it wasn't for the musky  guys there would only be like three of us...

      Told my wife I wanted to watch hooker....  she said " you aren't watching any hookers while I'm around"   rim shot.

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T
