      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.

      The crappie bite here has been very fussy, almost like ice fishing. So windy it's been tough to fish the way they seem to want it, most of the time.

      4 outfits out here right now.

      Fall fishing is so solid on Lake of the Woods right now. The fish may bite a different times everyday but they bite, and bite good, everyday. Had Pete Smith in the boat Thursday and it really couldn't have gone any better. Check it out, this weeks NCOR LOTW Fishing Report from Curt's NCOR Guide Service

      5.7% success in warm, breezy weather.  Hopefully that doubles for next weekend.  I think the weather will be a little cooler at least. I only heard 1 field report.  2 does and 2 fawns sighted. 1 in the morning and 3 in the evening.   I've heard area reports the deer are starting to move but not much for scrapes and such.  The leaves have been coming down and the woods opening up.  I've personally seen the deer start and stop using some areas as fall has set in.

      Hello, I'm from Chicago but I have a lot of family in Rochester. I come up for a week every few months and always do great fishing for Large mouth. I was hoping to find some spots to specifically target Pike that are within 30 mins of Rochester. I will be mainly shore fishing.  Thank you 
    • eyeguy 54
      Got up to Bowstring again at Geigers Trails End Resort. Went up to get some crappies nd found them but again could not get one to bite out deep.  One spot they were 7 feet thick ! LOL   So we chased perch and did great. No 12 inchers but a lot of dandies. Not sure if I will get back up before ice.  Crappies should be great this winter.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.
