      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 .

The draft is over and F.A's have been picked up all over, but can someone give me some light on how Chris Leak did not get drafted or picked up yet?? He won about every high school award a kid could win for football, Goes to Florida and wins a national championship, put up good numbers across the board, has obviously played under some pressure,He is only 6 foot but everything else seems to be in check, how does he get passed up?

ummmmm.......he isn't really as good as he seems??? I don't know but I do know that I have watched him play a handful of times and have never been really impressed with his play.......he had good games but never really a player that you watched and said "now that guy can flat out play!!" i am sure someone will give him a chance and he will start on someones practice squad or maybe even a third stringer........just my $.02

Update, He has been picked up by da Bears, he will prolly be their starter this year, I would take him left handed over the Gross man. I did some more exploring and I see some people have shown interest in him but, I wish the Vikes would have scooped him up.

He's more of an athlete than a QB. His mechanics aren't great and his arm isn't that strong. He's basically a project QB with limited upside. He is tough and has played against very good competition but he never really showed he could be the man and take over a team or a game.

I dont want to rain on the vikes drafts because they were pretty solid but, I would have rather had Leak then the Coastal Carolina kid. Like some scouts said about Leak is all he does is win. Sure the arm strength is not the best but it seems other guys in the NFL make it work and he seems like he was able to make it work in college. His arm is well suited for a WCO.

I thought he was EXTREMELY solid and proficient in that national title game and there isn't a much bigger stage than that to play on. Obviously he can handle the pressure of a big game and like its been said, he's a winner and we don't have too many of them around!

I was never gaga over Leak by any means, but I do think he'll be a serviceable backup at least for many years in the NFL.

being an iowa boy, leak reminds me alot of brad banks. a good qb that won lots of games, but the one game that stood out was UofI v ISU. seneca wallace out classed him in every way. i think banks got selected late, but i don't believe he ever made a team. not that seneca is tearing it up, but a back-up for hasselbeck is not bad.

i don't see leak doing much, if any thing

We have had a QB in the past that was an athlete and not to proficient at passing but he used to run the ball a lot and had a cannon for an arm, Bobby Douglass. We shall see what this guy brings to the table. And by the way Fishin58, that's Super Bowl Champion 1985 and Super Bowl Runner Up 2007 Turds to you!

      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.

      I've been fishing all my life, but I've only recently started seriously catfishing. I've discovered a spot near my home on the Minnesota river where the current comes to a still near a small, no longer active dam where there are rocks and tons of baitfish, which I assume should be a good spot for big flatheads. I've fished this spot a few days now and have only successfully pulled out a small flathead of maybe 5 or 6 pounds on a medium sized live sucker about a foot below a bobber. For your experienced catters, what's the best approach for big cats this time of year? Do you prefer live bait or cut bait? When using cut bait are heads or filets better? Since MN only allows one rod out should I be focusing my bait near the bottom of the river or a couple feet under a bobber? I tend to fish between 7pm-10pm although I'd like to try more late night fishing. Thanks for any suggestions!
