      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.

      Moose is right. We fish the same area and all those lakes were sketchy with old sheets of ice and lots of open/skim ice. I have not been out this week but vetween my brother and friends i have heard the ice is all getting stronger. Idk if ive ever seen lakes freeze like this. Plus snow everyday makes it scary when u cant see the ice. No mater what dont go alone and just because u see people out there dont mean the ice is good. Lots of circumstanes this year where u have 6 inches in one spot and 5 feet away there is one inch

      Out of the north west part of the lake yesterday, found anywhere from 5-8 inches of ice.  Close to a few pressure ridges there was less than 3 inches.  There are a lot of patches of rough ice and pressure ridges so be careful.  Saw several places where spearer's were set up where they pushed the ice block under the ice and did not mark their holes, please people be cautions.

      Here's the scoop, Buddy Hillmen is now allowing 1/2 ton trucks with single axle wheel houses.. Also any size wheel house pulled by wheeler or side by side. Drive slow there's a bridge plate about a mile out. Do not try and cross berm to the south of road. I have all ready seen a couple tracks where they did not make it through. be safe use commom sense and enjoy such a grand lake. On a side note. Last weekend a small fish house was set up about 200 yards from me. Sunday I was driving by and noticed a plastic bag so I stopped to pick it up. It was pushed down into the augured hole and turned out to be a bag of poop. From now on I will be taking random pics of wheel houses and if I find that kind of crap again I will be reporting to dnr and expect a possible ticket in the mail.

      Some are fishing it.   But the winds kept parts open till Monday.  Be cautious as you go.  Ice thickness really varies.
    • Naturboy
      I checked ice earlier and there was 2 different ice sheets one was 4” ant that time and the other was 1 1/2”. The 1 1/2” ice was most of the lake. Be very careful on there.

      Most coho being on Minnesota side are 12" - 17".   Occasional bigger fish.  Very few 3# pound fish.
    • iiccee63
      Had to go out there today. 4" was the least I saw. Mostly 5 ".

      SM, Nice meeting you today! I am sure we will see each other again! We ended up catching 6 walleyes and 6 tulibees. Kept 3 walleyes from 14" to 19-3/4". We quit at 1:00pm also.
