      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 was out on Diamond yesterday morning at 7:30AM. WE were one of the only boats out there. We were fishing a point and by about 10:30 there was 13 boats trolling that point with us. Which was great!! We were all catching some fish. The some guy cam in and anchord right on the end of the point (I hope it wasn't you). Because some other guys got really ticked off and had some comments for the guy. The guy who stopped traffic had the regular remark of I didn't know you owned the lake blah blah blah. I was mad but didn't say anything. I just continued trolling the path my gps said I had been trolling since 7:30AM. It happened to be within 4 ft of that guys boat. After about the 3rd or 4th time of doing this he told me he wasn't moving his bobbers for me again. I just said I heard you tell the other guy you didn't know he owned the lake....I assume that goes the same for you. The next time by he reeled them up again and right as we got by him I caught a nice 17 incher. We only ended up with 6 walleyes between the 3 of us but it was a fun day. Needless to say with 13 other boats following in my same path that guy didn't get to keep his bobbers in the water to much. We were fishing on the point right before you turn the corner to go into dogfish.

Wernt me slot I try to avoid the congested areas!I went out bout 1-1:30 got tired of running chainsaw,ole girl didnt want to go so I thought I'd try for sunnies,straight from where you were toward the access.I do fish that spot this time of year,but normally I only go out weekdays,once the waterskiers start I'm off by 9-10AM.7-8 boats there when I got out when I left there was 1 troller 1 still 3:30-4PM I got discusted,but I was out in prime pleasure boater time.Slot just reread your post,ya know with GPS and trolling your route if your on the end and someone pulls in on your line of trolling,I think I'd give him the area and just move a bit,Hows someone to know its your route? I put out markers at times but not in a group of people.I consider where your boat is, is your spot.

I tend to agree with Sparcebag...I have nothing against trolling but I don't even own a GPS and depending on whether I'm fishing out of my big boat or little 14 foot determines whether I even have a depthfinder along. On a lot of lakes when guys are fishing slipbobbers nearly everyone is doing it so it isn't a problem...but I can see your point if you are trolling along the same route over and over and then this guy just dumps right in in front of you but it is still a tough call.

Your response to him saying he wasn't going to move his bobbers again should have been "Okay, you like re-tying then?"

Sparce,

I would agree with you most of the time. Say I was trolling the west shoreline from the park down to the south corner, which lots of people do, I wouldn't expect someone to know that's where I had been going back and forth for the last 3 hours and I would gladly troll around them. But that point on the SE corner before going into dogfish is small and the fish where stacked on the very tip. I was only going about 100ft on either side of it along with 13 other boats and we were all taking turns trolling the end. Even though I was the first person there I don't own the lake and welcome others who want to troll along with me or next to me. It doesn't take a genius to see what 14 boats are doing and what they are fishing. This person would have been welcomed by me at least to join in on the line. But to park on the spot where everyone has been and wants to go is just rude. Now if I had he time to go fishing days out of a week I probably would have just moved and found something else.

      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?

      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

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.
