      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 .

Does anybody know if you can repair MinnKota Power Drive foot pedals?I am having trouble with getting my speed control to work properly. It is 4 years old. Or am I just better off buying a new one?

You don't state the specific problem with it. It might need a good clean up.

The powerdrive foot pedals can go bad. I went through 2 to 3 pretty much every season and they cost $80 to get a new one, pretty spendy from Minn Kota when the foot pedals are junk. I've never heard of the foot pedals getting fixed over just getting a new one, fixing would probably cost more after labor and all that. I'd suggest cleaning first but I have no idea what you should clean it with.

I had a problem with a foot pedal a few years ago and I took it apart and gave it a good cleaning and that seemed to work.

I did try that with another pedal and it did not help so I had to replace that one.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the advice. I think I am going to be forced to buy a new one.

Before I repaired the foot pedal, I would buy the add on remote. I don;t use the foot pedal any more since I bought the remote and two senders. The foot pedal stays in the storage compartment.

Switch to the remote control. The Minnkotas are excellent mtors but the foot pedals are junk. I don't understand why they can't figure it out and build something reliable.

Haven't used mine since I got the remote. smirk.gif

I third the copilot. Got mine last year off ebay and haven't taken the pedal out of storage since. Always works and it's handy as heck. When you look at the cost of a pedal, not much more for the remote.

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
