      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 forgot to mention that this would be a great website to direct people towards who don't think that its safe to eat fish out of the river. If the river is going to be cleaned up, we need to spread the word that the water quality has improved greatly in the past couple of decades. There are a lot of organizations out there that are fighting for increased funding for the Clean Water Legacy Act as well as CREP, and others. Funding is needed for these programs if we want to see a cleaner MN River. Just remember, if more people are educated about the river and know that they can make a difference, we can all push for a common cause, a cleaner Minnesota River. -Thats my rant for the day smile.gif

The Mn River is defiantly getting healthier but its still one of most polluted bodies of water in the entire state and some groups say the entire nation. It still isn’t very safe to eat fish out of the river. If it was they wouldn’t have advisories for it. I'm not saying you can’t or shouldn’t just that it would be foolish to say that its completely safe. Especially in the spring when the higher water has churned up the sediment where alot of the pollutants have come to rest. Not to mention all the spring run off. Almost 1/3 of the entire state drains into the Mn River and most of that is through farm county.

Mankato Paddling and Outings Club organizes a spring river clean up every year. Not sure when it is this year but if you would like to help do something for the river this would be a great place to start.

We have a long way to go but I am hopeful that someday the river will be something all Minnesotans can be proud of.

I was just coming on here to post this article. Looks like someone beat me to it! I would say that the river is definitely cleaner than it was before... I do eat fish from it regularly, but nothing too big, especially predator fish. Freshwater drum are still my favorite meal!

QUOTE: "most people can eat an unlimited number of under-15-inch walleyes - the most prized game fish in the river"

I am surprised that no one here has commented about this Quote shocked.gifgrin.gif

I thought the prized fish was Mr Flathead, the king of the river.

Hey Dark30,

One of those pics looks like you. "Unidentified Man", when they post like that, kinda makes it sound like that person was hanging around a girls locker room door or something to the afect. Nice fish!

      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.
