      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 .

On Saturday at o dark 30. We were wading off of Diamond Point not much happening and I took a knee in about a foot of water just off from the old launch spot. Well heard a splash right next to me turned on the head lamp and a big pig muskie was laying right there well over 42" with a smaller probably closer to 36" laying right alongside, I am sure they were a spawning pair, so we watched em for a bit as they cruised around out feet and then drifted off.

I tell ya turning that light on and first thing ya see is those eyes looking at ya that close wakes ya up. All in all way cool.

One little eye and one northern, spent way to much time avoiding boats in 3 fow, I mean really do folks have to get that close to the shoreline.

Did better Saturday night on the trout with the kids, and again on Sundsay. We ended up with 25 trout from Saturday and Sunday with some real nice ones.

I want to let things settle a bit before taking the kids out after eyes to many yahoos to make it enjoyable.

It was funny watching younger guys playing bumper boats and yelling at each other. Especially the ones running shallow getting hung up on Diamond Point Bar wished i had a video of that.

I went to BSU and while attending that glorious establishment of higher learning I along with my buddies fished Diamond Point a LOT at night. We had the same experiences as you did with the boats though. I was very frustrated when they could fish the entire lake and they anchor right in front of you.

One experience we heard a boat coming and turned our headlamps on so they could see us. The stopped literally 30 feet from me and anchored RIGHT where we were casting the edge of the dropoff. I told them that it was ridiculous that they could fish anywhere and they had to set up right there and no reply. So, I casted my #11 countdown across the bow of the little metal boat and began to crank it in. I heard the tink tink as it his the one side of the boat and dragged across the floor of the boat and then over the other side and splashed back into the water.

Without a word, they pulled up their anchor and left.

      Wasn't sure, but I found it. looked like  you were cooking something on the grill.

      We were out near Taylors.  Couple boats and us and a pontoon and a pleasure boat cut right between us "sight seeing".  Blows my mind how they cut right between boats that are fairly close to each other fishing an area and cruise right through without a care in the world!  Del, I thought last year you figured out which place I had?

      Fuses are for fire protection. If you're willing to risk a fire in your boat if something goes awry, have at it. Your insurance company would be happy to have a good reason to keep all the premiums you've paid and refuse your claim. Hopefully no one will get injured or die in the fire.

      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?

      Thank you one and all, especially you Tommy. Some very kind words and ditto to you my friend. "Ace" "It's just fishing man"

      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
