      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 drive under Causeway - want to fish Saturday??

Recommended Posts

Not too long ago cars were driving out from 5 Mile Dock, going under Causeway and out on the North Arm. Big snowdrifts under Causeway now, and one guy had to be towed out yesterday. Then the tow truck had to winch himself up the boat landing at 5 Mile Dock. OK for snowmobiles but not trucks or cars.

There is a plowed road going north from the little island in the middle of Causeway on the north side. They are driving gravel trucks out from there. I drove my truck out there yesterday with no problems. About 6-12 inches of snow once you get away from shore and off the plowed road. But there are some big drifts you need to watch out for especially over the pressure ridges.

I hope we see more posts on snow and ice conditions in the near future. I asked everybody I knew including two bait stores yesterday (one in Fort Francis) and nobody knew anything about travel conditions on the Canadian side! There is plenty of traffic on the Canadian side so please let us know what the conditions are and save the rest of us some grief.

Didn't catch anything but only fished a couple hours in a new spot.

If anybody wants to convoy on the North Arm Saturday send me an email or call.

Thanks for the post. I'll be up in a few weeks to the north arm. Does the plowed road from the little island hook back into the road that's usually plowed from 5 mile?

Sorry the fishing wasn't better. We'll be up chasing crappies. Doesn't sound like northwest bay has been that great this year. May have to do some crappie searching in the north arm. We've managed a few up there but never as well as in northwest bay.

I haven't been up this year yet, I don't know if I can wait after seeing the post from superblack!

Not sure where the road has been in the past. Does look like it ends up over there where they were driving out from 5 Mile Dock. We went all the way to the end - 21 miles. It goes purrty much due north through the inside passage on the west side. We wanted to fish Ash bay but it goes east of the opening about a mile and heads for Devils Cascade but ends at a floating "cottage" off an island a few miles south of the Cascade. Numerous side roads to cottages.

There was lots of snow along the shorelines Saturday so we didn't want to try driving our trucks through the narrows going into Ash Bay and take a chance of getting stuck.

It rained Sunday and must have been 50 degrees yesterday so MUCH melting. No telling how the shoreline is at the little island now. It was already getting sloppy Sunday night. It is 42 right now (07:20 a.m.) so looks like lots more melting today.

      Wasn't sure, but I found it. looked like  you were cooking something on the grill.

      We were out near Taylors.  Couple boats and us and a pontoon and a pleasure boat cut right between us "sight seeing".  Blows my mind how they cut right between boats that are fairly close to each other fishing an area and cruise right through without a care in the world!  Del, I thought last year you figured out which place I had?

      Fuses are for fire protection. If you're willing to risk a fire in your boat if something goes awry, have at it. Your insurance company would be happy to have a good reason to keep all the premiums you've paid and refuse your claim. Hopefully no one will get injured or die in the fire.

      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?

      Thank you one and all, especially you Tommy. Some very kind words and ditto to you my friend. "Ace" "It's just fishing man"

      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
