      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 .

Labshack on private waters!

Recommended Posts

Labs4me is always whining about "to many poeple", "poeple are crowding me", I don't "want to pay the road fee" so on and so forth so we moved the Labshack to a PRIVATE little lake today so he could have the peace and quite he desires. It was a small investment on Labs part for his own lake with his own access and his own massive school of river chubs to fish but as the selling party I feel he will be very happy on this "cozy" lake. Trouble is he will need a bridge to get to it...I'm thinking the golden gate deal will fit into his budget. grin.gif

Looks like PARADISE to me! Boy I can't wait to get back up there and POST the perimeter of my 'new hotspot'!!! No crowding then...

And all the river chubs I could want? I guess I'm opening a new bait stand to boot... HMMM... I wonder what chubs bite on? I say Kelly should make sure all the welds are tight on the skids and they can double as pontoons and I'll have a houseboat to boot for the summer! grin.gif Good thing you didn't try it with the wheel house... I don't know if it would've ever made it back out, and I don't see parts laying on the ice! grin.gif

You guys crack me up!

Last time we were on Petrowske waters this time of the year, it was to 'fish out' an ATV and an overserved buddy... 'course that was Petrowske Creek and not Lake Petrowske...

With friends like you guys............. well it just brings tears to my eyes!!! tongue.gif

Good Luck!

Hows the access getting on that lake? Is it o.k. for a full size 4x4 or should I bring my snowmobile and portable so I can be a little more mobile??? Oh and what depths are you catching fish? Lure colors, time of day fish are biting, etc all appreciated.

Sheepeople! Now that's funny... grin.gif

      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."

      That was my son cooking up my birthday dinner!  I'm older and have more grey hair (a lot more) than dark.  Be sure to say "hello-I'm Del"  if you see me!  Will be back up for a few extra days over Labor Day.

      There was a musky tourney last weekend, at spring bay.  Some club deal.   I think that might have contributed to the issue.   Normally I am one of few boats out on wakemup fishing walleye.   Like count on fingers of one hand.
