      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 .

Don't get too comfy in those pants, but I'm glad to hear you slipped them on. The zinger is a go for the weekend. A few of us fished out there last weekend and did really well on the gills up to 9". The get bigger too, so hopefully this weekend a few make an appearance. The crappies were slow, but with the warmer temps, the action should pick up. A few cats, largies, and pike were caught as well.

Boy was it a nice day today eh guys? Sunburns galore.

We started out today at around 6:30 and tried untill around 10:30 at Fish. Not much happening for fish being caught. A few here and there but not really on fire. So we grilled out and got ready to move about a mile down the lake. BY FOOT! blush.gif

I guess I better learn how to put the camera on the right setting?

Then we moved and tried a new spot. Only this place was much better. Gills and cats. One 26" er and mine which was a bit smaller.

Then a plane tried to land but it was way too soft on the lake.

DzNuts, it was a pleasure to meet you. Man I sure wish you would have caught some of them monsters you had on. Talk about frustrating. Get a good hook set and only gain a few cranks on the reel and then the drag goes nuts and then *poof* off they would go. Weird. I had a couple of them too.

Hey Airjer, thanks for coming dude! Always fun to talk to you about stuff.

I had a GREAT time fishing with you guys. The weather was great and the fishing went well.. alright. It was nice to hook on to a couple fish and finally get to put some faces to the names.

Dan, I'm glad someone could share my frustration. Misery loves company. We'll have to go back and try to get those jigs back from fat rascals. And thanks for the lunch.

The plane crash was a classic. Almost made the walk worth while.

See you all you guys real soon.

Holy crap, you guys were there when the plane tried to land!? That makes a season right there! You've got to wonder about the pilot who decides to land on a foot of snow. blush.gif Ice is easy to land on I'd imagine, but that just doesn't make any sense. Must not be from 'round here. smile.gif

Thanks for the report guys. Looks like it was fun. I hope your sunburn's doing okay today.

Regardless of the fish not cooperating, it was a great day to be on the ice. I think my total tally was two nice gills, and 3 or 4 perch. If anybody likes to laugh and have a good time than you should have been there!! The plane crashing was the icing on the cake and deffinetly worth the hike. That made it into my top ten greatest things I have ever seen and I'll be telling my grand children about that for sure!!

Thanks Dan for hosting this event!!

Sounds like all had a great time. I was up at the in-laws cabin in Winter, WI. Doing some spring projects up there. I did though see a 72" Muskie that weighed in just over 100lbs let me tell you that is a fish. The fish was found floating along the Chippewa Flowage a few years back. One of the local bars had a reproduction made of the fish.

The ZZ was a great success, even though the fish made us work for them. Dan's grill was putting out some tasty dogs and the sun was baking. The fish had temporarily moved out of the Fishermans Inn flats. Those that made the walk reaped some rewards from what I hear.

It was nice to meet everybody out there.

A great big thanks to the people who offered the awesome fish meal to my brother and me. It says quite bit about someone who will offer food to two guys they don't know from Adam.

Thanks again,

Steve Gorder

      Still out working Finn most days, because being laid off I have a little more time for it. Seeing it is warm I keep the sessions short. Finn is been dropping the dummies on my feet just as I want him to do. I can't wait for hunting season as I know Finn as excited as I am.

      See you next year, we are pulling out this week and it sounds like you were only up for the weekend.   Sorry I didn't quite have the nerve to climb the steps and introduce myself.   I guess I am not big on just showing up at the door. 
    • Surface Tension
      Lester River-McQuade area.   Last time out we found bait and Lake Trout 100-120'  taken off downriggers and stacked lines over 145-175' of water.  That can change day to day so keep an eye on the sonar.   Silver Flasher w/Fly, Water Mellon, Monkey Puke, Silver w/green/blue crushed ice spoons working well for us.  Last 2 times out were during midday and bright skies trolling around 2 MPH.   If you put in at Rice's Point bring rubber boots and watch your step as the beginning of the dock is under water.
         
    • Surface Tension
      So all 3 banks are blowing fuses with the charger outside the boat hooked to a battery with nothing else connected to it?   Try a different battery.  If your still blowing fuses I wouldn't use the charger.

      Labor day will be a busy weekend.  If you are around after the weekend, Maybe we can grab a beer.  I was going to say the landing, but maybe something else....WBL?

      Fuses are blowing for a reason most likely an undesirable reason. Much better solution to fix the problem than eliminating the fuse. Eventually the sort or item causing the fuse to blow will eventually make it to the wires. Just a thought, although not recommend, there is enough battery current where you can stick weld 11 gage steel with a 12 volt battery. Continued or prolonged welding (same as a short) could cause to battery to explode. Word of caution, led acid batteries are filled with sulfuric acid.

      I agree with del, used boats are more than adequate. I bought a 1990 Crestliner Sport for $5,100 in 2013. Did some floor and live well work, added co-pilot to the trolling motor, Vexilar SonarPhone connected to my iPad, and a tablet with the Navionics Boating App for GPS. Welded verses rivet hull was my desire. Tops out at 43 mph with 115hp merc 2 stroke. Handles the 4' Ottertail waves quite well. Picture of boat on Ottertail which I fish several times yearly along with other Ottertail County lakes and lakes closer to home I frequent often. At 73 its easy to launch / take-out. Look for a family owner, one that uses the boat once or twice a month the boat/motor will have limited hours of use on it. In my opinion the used boat is the only way to go.

      Here's a quote from the MinnKota digital onboard charge manual. "INLINE FUSE The output cord has an inline fuse on the RED end. The fuse serves as protection from surges and short circuits caused by a damaged charger output cable. If a fuse blows, replace it with a 30 amp ATC 32V automotive fuse. Improper battery connections will normally not cause a fuse to blow since this is handled by the internal circuitry of the charger."
