      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 .

Update on Hudec's Resort (northeast shore of Red Lake)

Recommended Posts

Hudec’s Resort is open, although it may not currently offer a complete line of resort services. Don Hudec and family are still maintaining and operating the motel cabins, the camp sites and the boat launching ramp into the resort’s boat harbor.

My dog and I pitched my tent on a prime lakeshore campsite this past weekend. I launched my small boat in the boat harbor, and tied it up a few feet from my tent.

The formerly deep channel from the boat harbor to the lake has filled in substantially with sand. In some places the channel water depth in the lake shallows area is around 6” deep… a really big boat and motor will move some sand getting out onto the lake and returning to the boat harbor.

There were several fishing parties staying in the cabins who were fishing out of medium-size boats with outboard motors hydraulically adjustable for shallow running. I was using a small trolling motor. None of us had any trouble getting from the harbor to the lake and back again…

One of the better fishing areas this time of year is straight out from Hudec’s boat harbor channel. Many of the boats launched at resorts on the south and east shores of the lake, and at the public launch sites on the Tamarac River, were trolling, drifting or anchored in a long line extending in both directions along the 6 foot water depth line.

If you’re looking for a premium lakeside tent campsite, or a premium lakeside RV campsite that may not have electricity continuously… a quarter mile from where you’ll probably be fishing… you should stop in and talk with Don Hudec or his family the next time you’re in the area. I don’t know that there’s a phone number… best to visit and talk directly with the Hudecs.

Sunday of the opener I pulled in there, Was looking to launch my boat. The Public acess' were full. When I got to Hudec's I thought the place was closed. So I ended up going down to WestWind to launch.

There were people camping there, but it just didn't have the we're open feeling.

I have gone out thru Hudec's a handfull of times during the Ice season. The people The Hudec's had always been extremely accomidating. Opener weekend had me wondering if the establishment was still operational. Glad to hear they are offering campsites.

      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
