      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 .

I have service through Verizon and have brought my cell with to Mexico and the Dominican Republic. Getting a strong signal in most areas isn't a problem, but roaming charges outside of the U.S. can be expensive, unless you have an international calling plan. Check w/Verizon customer service for exact rates, as it may be cheaper than using a pay phone, as Tom had indicated. If I remember correctly, calling from a pay phone or the hotel was $3-5 per minute (it's been a couple years since I've been there, so prices may have changed).

I was at a resort on the mainland directly across from Cozumel three weeks ago. Members of our group would have Verizon service, but it doesn't work quite like we're used to. A recorded message offering directions is part of the process, in Spanish.

Our group found it much easier to purchase a $10 calling card from the resort and use a dedicated public telephone there. Call rate was $1.00 per minute that way. Good Luck!

Where I was we had service, but could not retrieve messages, and when we got home and seen the bill, I think it was $5 a minute we got charged, lets just say the wifes phone charges were almost as much as our vacation! not really but it was an extra $250

I was in Cozumel the first week of March and my Verizon phone worked great. I called them first and got on the international plan. $.69 a minute plus some other charges. Haven't got the bill yet. When in Mexico make sure you dial 001 first, then area code and number. I had better reception then I get in my basement. I stayed at the El Cozumeleno on the north end.

You might be surprised with the extra charges you run up. I would lean towards the phone card and check messages from a land line. Outside the US, phone service can be considered a luxury item and priced as such. Worst I've found so far is Curacao. 50 bones for my wife to talk to her dad for 5 minutes. Think I paid $15 to call in my unemployment from Jamaica... worth every penny. cool.gif

      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.
