      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 .

Spend fishing time with?

This is a rip off of the "Todays Fishing Media Personalities" thread. Name the one person and just one person that you would like to spend some fishing time in a boat with. I would like to spend some time with Mike Rowe from Dirty Jobs. He comes across as a very nice guy and I have no doubt if he was willing he would have more then enough stories to just make me sit there and listen. I can't imagine what he would have to say about stories behind the stories..

Besides Jenna and the Bikini team my next choice would prolly have to be Neil Peart.

I have no idea if he fishes or not, but the dude's just way too cool to not hang out with if ya can.

I think a couple of hours and a few suds with Ted Nugent could be pretty enlightening.

Good choice DTRO. Both of my G'Pas' for a "last trip" if they were still around would be ideal.

I did fish with David Walker of the Wheaties Box "Angler of the Year" in about 2000 and he was very, very cool. Lots of laughs and lots of hunting and fishing stories. Good guy. Taught me a lot too.

Pat MacManus would be a good guy to drown some minnows with smile.gif

I would have to say My DAD ,,he was a 1/3 owner of a 12 ft shallow sears aluminum boat so we didnt get to fish out of it all that much ,,shortly before I got my first boat he was already diagnosed and died 55 days after his grandaughter was born and about 3 months after I got the boat frown.gif so many things left unsaid

I'd like to spend a day fishing Sag with the "Big Guy" Jesus. I bet we'd get on some fish, I could run all over the lake at wot and not worry about my lower unit, and I guess we could go over a couple of other issues that I'm concerned about. smirk.gif

I also would choose 2 people that would be my parents since I never got a chance to fish with them as an adult so many questions. Besides I'd like for my daughter to be with so she could meet her grandparents.

Would love to fish one more time with my mom....(if the weekend surgeries go well...we may get a chance)

Regarding those who'd want to fish with Jenna Jameson...reminds me of a punchline...as you pull into shore, and the buddies at the launch see you escort her from the boat, they call to you and say "did you catch anything"...you coyly reply: "I hope not!"

My Dad and my Mom. Dad passed away unexpectedly 19 months ago. Mom has no interest in fishing since then. Would love to spend just one more day with him. OK, that's a lie... I would love to have a lot more time than that with him. I always figured there is lots of time yet... wrong again! Hug your loved ones, you just never know. Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Now with the verse and all, I am curious how you would know about this particular personality? Just curious. I liked Halle Barry on the houseboat and she is on my list so my wife couldn't squack, course Alan Jackson or Mel Gibson could invite her out too, so then I'd be hosed! grin.gif

My grandpa. My inspiration and teacher of everything that made me a sportsman. When I was a little kid, grandpa had already retired. My bro and I used to spend two weeks with him in the summer and we'd fish every day on the Mississippi river out of Trempeleau area. Panfish and some casting for Northern/Bass. Gosh I never had a hot dog that tasted any better than the ones we used to roast on a sandbar over an open fire we'd made at lunch. They were the BEST of times.

My dad used to travel from Ky to MN and we would go to Canada for a week. Today he is pushing 90 and residing in a nursing home and when I visit he dosn't even know who I am. When I'm there he always asks me where I live and when I tell him Duluth he will say my son lives there and we used to go fishing togeather. One more time would be just fine with me.

      See you next year, we are pulling out this week and it sounds like you were only up for the weekend.   Sorry I didn't quite have the nerve to climb the steps and introduce myself.   I guess I am not big on just showing up at the door. 
    • Surface Tension
      Lester River-McQuade area.   Last time out we found bait and Lake Trout 100-120'  taken off downriggers and stacked lines over 145-175' of water.  That can change day to day so keep an eye on the sonar.   Silver Flasher w/Fly, Water Mellon, Monkey Puke, Silver w/green/blue crushed ice spoons working well for us.  Last 2 times out were during midday and bright skies trolling around 2 MPH.   If you put in at Rice's Point bring rubber boots and watch your step as the beginning of the dock is under water.
         
    • Surface Tension
      So all 3 banks are blowing fuses with the charger outside the boat hooked to a battery with nothing else connected to it?   Try a different battery.  If your still blowing fuses I wouldn't use the charger.

      Labor day will be a busy weekend.  If you are around after the weekend, Maybe we can grab a beer.  I was going to say the landing, but maybe something else....WBL?

      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.
