      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 .

You didn't hear if from me but I heard those swimming dead logs are already in with all the rain and the cool summer, just don't tell anyone that I told you that.... smile

Should be out casting from shore tonight, no reason why they shouldn't be coming in.

Water temp yesterday was 76, I'm sure it's got to be lower today and tomorrow with it going to the mid 40's tonight.

Frankie - Did he ever have them?

Theres always a few stupid salmon in the river in august. Problem is its a gamble with bad odds, plus they run the river when its too warm and die. Lucky I know enough people up there to time things well. A few years ago a big pod of fish came in early and there were dead fish everywhere. The guys in the lake are reporting a good summer, lots of fish and good sized. Most of the activity is still deep so were on scheduel...

The pics were blurry It might have something to do with the humidity and dampness but it shows there still is waldos in there

with no wind the fishing was not as good as it was last night I think tonight would have been a better early evening bite but who knows. I scratched a limit of nice eaters and Todd caught a couple, fished hard from 9:30 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. We had a good time busting chops about the band playing at the beach they were freaking horrible. Didn't know you could butcher a classic like "Freebird" like that and pay to get in...:D I landed a nice 4 pd. smallie... Good times Todd...

Good job guys.

I got out today and the word is that the bite has been zero and it was like that until we finally put something together. We were trying out deep and looking for fish but nothing and the humps were empty of walleye's but full of nice perch so we put our heads together and found something promising and going out tomorrow morning to put it to the second test. We ended up with 10 fish in 2 drifts and will update tomorrow.

Was out doing the bass thing the other night and stayed until it got dark. At sunset, I was looking at a very bright light at my 10 o'clock, boat in 6 fow casting in with a blue crome sexy shad . . . picked up 3 waldos. Landed a 14.5 and lost the smaller one and a larger one. Switched to a Frenzy, black and crome suspending, had one hit and later a big smallie. Lots of baitfish on the screen . . . also lots of white bass. If you guys haven't done it this Summer, now would be a good time to check your ice flasher batteries; connect, check and recharge to 100% and then disconnect.

Got a chance to fish a bit with Steve and Max, lake was very windy and rough. Didn't catch mych but I did catch this new digital camera it's and Olympus Stylus-550WP I bought this a.m. reading and getting used to it now. Here are some pics of the trip..

Only walleye Steve caught and it was earlier in the a.m. before I arrived. Max can't wait to take a bite out of this 20"er.

    • We the People 1911   I am thinking this will be my next gun.
    • I have a question for all of you AV wizards out there. In my house I have 4 or 5  flat screen TV's connected directly to Mediacon cable. No cable box. The only problem to this is my channels are digital channels so Fox 9 is actually on 9.9 and ESPN is on 66.5, etc.  I just recently acquired an older flat screen tv for my garage from a friend who didn't want it anymore. It is about 10 years old.  When I hook it up to cable and try to run the auto programming feature it doesn't find anything.  Could that TV just be too old to do what I am asking? I can get a cable box from Mediacom but I'm trying to avoid that. Any ideas?
    • I understand that the block heater doesn't warm the truck. It does warm the block which in turn heats the antifreeze which circulates through the heater core. The quicker the antifreeze heats up, the quicker the heater in the cab is blowing warm air. I am simply trying to cut down on idling time in the driveway. During the week the only time it's driven is quick trips when the wife is not home. Her vehicle is what's driven most of the time.  My my main concern was leaving the pickup plugged in all the time and causing some other sort of issues with the engine. 
    • How hard has he been running this 400 HP rig? Might be as simple as a plug wire or might require a compression test. 
    • Get the choke adjusted that should take care of the cold start issue. A weak fuel pump usually starts to show up at high RPMs.   If left to idle the fuel pump fills the carb bowl, as you accelerate the weak pump can't keep up and the engine bogs and bucks.  A bad fuel filter will do the same thing and is often overlooked. You probably have 2 filters,  one on the gas line and one inside the inlet of the carb.  Replace them, don't clean them.   A  fuel pump pressure test would be the next thing to do.   If your getting the bog throughout the power band then I'd suspect something electrical but it could show up just at higher RPMs or load as well.  Condition of plug wires, dist cap, rotor, pickup coil, and vacuum advance.  1st check all the vacuum lines for cracks and loose connections.  Something that old is bound to have bad lines.  While your at it clean the PCV vavle.  Google HEI distributor to test the pickup coil and ohm values.   Check the linkage to vacuum advance.  You can do a visual on the cap and rotor but its hard to find a hairline crack.   Keep us updated.  
    • I was seeing the same things on the lakes in Roseville/Shoreview. I assumed that with the cold temps over night the ice was growing and expanding causing a few of those cracks to show up.  Maybe some of the light snow helped push the ice down enough to let a little water seep through.
    • Tried wiring the choke open at operating temp and took for a drive. Still misses at appx 45 mph. Always seem to miss about 90% of the time at that speed although sometimes at around 30mph. Next question,,, fuel pump maybe or possibly the EGR VALVE. Dont have a way to test the fuel pump but thinking with the way its hard to start I was thinking possibly low fuel pressure. 
    • Bald Eagle skimmed over on Saturday.  Today after the relatively light snow there are many areas where the cracks look like water came up through and discolored the ice.  At least that what I think happened. Since there was only an inch or so of snow I am surprised that it pushed the ice down and let water come up.  Anyone else have an explanation?
    • I am assuming it was either an Ion, SM Lithium, or drill setup... If it is, no need for a slush copter. I put my slush bucket over the hole... drill... then reverse. In 12" of ice I can do 6 holes with one dump of the bucket. Every 6" beyond that takes another dumping of the bucket.
    • I have the parts on order to get the unit set up for the ice.  I ended up buying a marcum lithium shuttle for my LX7 and then plan to mount the Helix on the shuttle that came with my LX7.  I am hoping to find walk-able ice in my area this weekend and hopefully the parts show up before then so i can give it a go.  I have the pre-chirp model of the helix so with a little luck i can get them to cooperate.
