      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 .

Lake Access this weekend

I am trying to get a trip planned for this weekend and was looking for an update on the accesses. I called a few resorts and it sounds like the houses are coming off the lake due to access issues. So what does this weekend look like? Trucks or wheelers? Thanks for the input!

I suppose it is a bit early to tell but will truck traffic be allowed on the ice out of Hillmans on Sat? will bring wheelers just in case but would be nice to just drive the trucks

lots of water on the road driving in. 4-8 inches of water. Fishing was ok, a few crappies and a dozen walleyes.

Any updates? We are heading up in the morning and I'll be making some calls but figured I'd ask now also.

The water on the ice is going down. Way better travel tonight then this morning. Hillman's road will be open for trucks this weekend but there is one place we will have to watch out for. When the lake froze with the west wind it pushed all of the bullrushes towards shore and froze. Then the wind switched and pushed that line of frozen bullrushes back out into the lake about 100 yards. That line of bullrushes frozen into the ice is drawing the suns rays and the ground heat is coming from below. That will be the first place to go. I'm guessing that it is 2 1/2 to 3 feet deep there.

We fished out of Morts Dock Wednesday night and Thursday morning and did real well on crappies in just 11 feet of water not too far from the crappie cribs. The crappies were just about where Todd told us to look for them, that Todd sure knows his stuff. The weather was not too bad so we were able to quite a bit of hole hoping in the area and that is the secret to catching crappies on Red Lake.

Morts access was in excellent shape with just 2 small cracks to cross both had good bridges over them, no water to drive through at all. Todd is confident that their access will hold up to truck traffic most if not all of this weekend, I do believe that Morts is the only access left open on the south shore this winter and from the sounds of it will be the only access left open next summer on the south shore.

Oh, did I forget to mention the walleyes, most of the time they were impossible to get away from, the only way we could get any sleep at night was to pull up our lines, unbelievable is all I can say.

What other lake can you go to and catch walleye after walleye, after the season is closed, we see the results of catch and release on the shoreline after ice out.

      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?

      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

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.
