      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 .

Sorry I'm late on this post but thats life! Hit the river early and the eyes were bitting well, the problem was the size of them, most were in the 14 1/2" range, did manage to get four in the box for a oil bath. The guy I took out this morning got only one eye, he wasn't able to detect the light bite, this new rod I have is really something, I like it better than any other rod I've fished with, today once again it worked like magic, talk about sensitive. Limit Creek rods have really stepped up fishing to another level for me, Anyways, the fish I found today were in 10- 17 fow they were caught lindy riggen with crawlers, 3' snell 3/8 weight and a size 6 octopus beak bait hook neon color, plan on being on the river in alittle over 6 hours. See you on the water!! cool.gif

You can't convince me that the walleye population is down, sure had more than my share of little ones again this morning, did manage 2 nice ones for the oil but had a blast, gotta love the river! The bite was lite but plenty of them,a sensitive rod with light line seems to be the way to detect the lite bitters, amazing what you could miss without it! cool.gif

I was out from noon until 6:00 with my 7yr old, Slow trolling spinners with crawlers and leeches was the ticket for me today. 6 walleyes and 1 sauger. 2 were too small, 16" sauger, 16" eye, 18" eye, 20" eye and a nice 24" eye cpr'd. Best day I have had on the croix since last July, Finally. These weren't light biters for me they were hammering it today. All of the keepers had completely empty bellies. They must have been tight lipped for a while. I will add some photos when I ge developed, I finally made my boy proud, He had a blast, He even got a free Dairy Queen from the CO's cool.gif, Dad got a warning ticket for a having an empty fire extinguisher blush.gif, oops. Well I guess I will be forced to go to FleetFarm this week smirk.gif, Boy was it nice out there without all the boats, and to think I almost let the weatherman keep me home today. Hope the rest of you did well,

Dieguy

have to agree on the Limit Creek rods. I was throwing plastics for smallies and let my boat mate borrow my new "smoothie" as it already had a lindy rig on it. results? 19" and 18" wally in 8 ft of water. dang walleye are in my smallie holes! we let 'em go to hope they grow. I've had some nice fish this year already. not huge numbers but the size has been good for both the 'eyes and smallmouth. great year for me so far on the 'Croix

You can find Limit Creek Rods at limitcreek.com and the distributers there too(the rod Walli1 uses is the medium light- LCS69MLF), these rods are under 100 bucks. The Oakdale shop is Blue Ribbon Bait (on Century Ave about a mile N of 3M) and it is a very very nice shop with tons of muskie lures and lots of live bait choices.

Hit the river on Friday for 3 hours and again Sunday for 3 hours. Cranks produced 3 walleyes (one 21", two shorts), 1 sauger (short) and 1 crappie (14") on Friday. I was alone and the crappie and sauger were a double. I concentrated my efforts in 17-20 fow trolling #5 and #4 shadraps between 1.2 and 1.5 mph on leadcore. The walleyes and sauger liked the bait ticking the bottom whereas the crappie was caught 2 feet off the bottom. On Sunday we only caught 3 walleyes (one 17" and 2 shorts). Tried cranks along with crawlers and spinners but never found any trends.

I think I need to tag along with you guys one of these days. The only thing that I caught on Monday was a sunburn and a bunch of smallies. I tried Lindy rigging with worm but the smallies kept taking them. It was a bit too windy also. Well maybe Ill see you guys there this Sunday. Good luck yalls.

vxr, sometimes on the river I've found the walleyes in the same area as the smallies only a little deeper. Might be an option if it wasn't already tried.

      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.
