      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've been reading on here and have gotten a lot of great information. Thanks a lot guys! I'm going to be stopping at the Rainy 1 Stop later this morning and look forward to meeting Mark. I think we're going to start on Black Bay in search or eyes. I'll let all of you know how we do.

Welcome to both of you to the site. I'll be at I.V. from 2-4:15 pm on the 11th (doing the creel survey) and should be able to give you a very current report as well as find out how you've done the first couple days.

33, maybe we'll meet up somewhere this week too.

Thanks. I'll look for you at the I.V. dock on monday. I'm sure I will need some direction. Let me ask you do you think it will be worth my time looking for walleyes in Black Bay, Dove Bay or Cranberry?

HEY GUYS,

WELCOME TO THE RAINY SITE. BLACK BAY IS LOADED WITH FISH...SECRET IS TO KNOW HOW TO FISH IT, IT IS ALSO VERY DANGEROUS...ASK RAINYDAZE. BLACK BAY HAS A WAY OF PRODUCING "NEW" ROCKS DURING LOW WATER, SO GUESS WHAT YOUR TAKING A CHANCE GOING IN THERE, NOT TRYING TO SCARE YOU, BUT WANT YOU KNOW BLACK BAY IS THE HOME TO HUNDREDS OF LOWER UNITS.

THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO FISH BLACK BAY, BUT ONE OF THE BEST IS A SPINNER WITH A SPLIT SHOT AND JUST TROLL AROUND THE WINDY SHORES & ROCK REEFS...THIS CAN PRODUCE MANY BIG WALLEYES & CRAPPIES. YOU CAN ALSO SPEED TROLL RAPS....BUT AGAIN BE CAREFUL, AND NEVER COME TO RAINY WITHOUT SOME GOOD INSURANCE., THAT INCLUDES OUT OF BLACK BAY TOO.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

Hey Guys!

The Lund is up and running again. 2 day aired the lower unit, and was able to take it out for a spin to test it out. Just in time for the busy weekend. Good fishing this weekend guys! I've got two groups heading out, so I'll try post some results good or bad. Wouldn't mind seeing the weather stabilize a bit.

My family and I caught 12 walleye between 22" & 27". We caught a few eaters and some eater crappie as well. We didn't fish as much as I thought we may, the wind & rain discouraged my grandpa & parents, but we did alright for newbies to the lake. We didn't catch much in Black Bay, we fished off some islands in about 30 feet of water and were catching fish in 4'-15' of water right on a break. Pretty fun stuff catching the walleye. Thanks to Rainy Lake 1 Stop for the great minnows!! Lasted all week just fine!!

      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
