      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 .

24 volt wiring

Question

If I understand the help on wiring for 12 vt correctly but I want to wire 24 vt., do I hook one red wire to the positive side of battery 1 and one red wire to the negative side of battery 2? Then hook one black wire to the neg of battery 1 and one to the positive of battery 2? The wiring on my Pro-V 24 vt. system is not working and I have a on board charger that I need to hook to it also. Gary

WHAT YEAR AND MAKE IS YOUR BOAT AND HOW MANY WIRES ARE AT YOUR TROLLING MOTOR PLUG. THE BATTERIES CAN BE WIRED TWO DIFFERENT WAYS.

IF YOU HAVE FOUR WIRES TO BOW MOUNT TROLLING PLUG THEN YOU SHOULD HAVE A FOUR WIRE PLUG ON THE BOAT. IF SO THEN YOU WOULD NOT PUT THE BATTERIES IN SERIES. YOU WOULD WIRE THE BATTERIES AS TWO SEPERATE 12 VOLT BATTERIES. YOU WOULD NEED A 12/24 VOLT PLUG FOR YOUR TROLLING MOTOR. IF SO THEN YOU WOULD PUT THE BLACK WIRE FROM TROLLING MOTOR TO THE NEG SPOT ON THE PLUG AND THE RED WIRE TO THE 24 HOLE ON PLUG. THE TROLLING MOTOR PLUG WILL PUT YOUR BATTERIES IN SERIES FOR YOU. IF YOU ONLY HAVE ONE RED AND ONE BLACK ON THE ON BOARD CHARGER THE IT IS ONLY FOR 12 VOLTS. IF YOU MNEED MORE HELP GIVE ME A CALL AND I WILL HELP YOU. GOOD LUCK

GConda,

The 12/24 v plug on the boat/trolling motor should do the jump for you. I run a 2001 1775 Pro V and the same trolling motor. Wires from the plug should be wired to two batteries like 2 seperate 12 volt batteries. You only have two wires coming from the charger? Is it just a one bank charger (for 1 12 volt battery)? You should be running a 2 bank charger. You will then have 2 red wires and 2 black ones that get hooked up to the batteries like two seperate 12 v.

Thks all for your help. I think I totally understand it now. I am pretty sure I have one or more of the wires from my 24 vt. plug hooked up wrong. I just need to get a tester to get A+ to A+ amd so forth. Gary

    • Most of the moving on restrictor plates is done by changing the air flow around the car being passed with no or very little contact.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water.  Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits.  Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. 

      North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere!

      Until next week, 

      Sunset Lodge
    • Tip ups outside the house are fine because you can visually see them which means you are attending to those lines.  A line left down in your house while you go to a buddies house can't be seen. If you can't see them you can't attend to them when needed.  A CO also has no idea how long you were gone, were the lines unattended for 5 minutes or 5 hours?   If you have some sort of system set up so that you can monitor the lines remotely then you've entered a gray area and would probably be up to the CO's discretion.  You can email the DNR and ask but I'm guessing whether you get a ticket or not would be determined by which CO finds you and what kind of mood he's in that day.  If you did choose to take the ticket to court I'd think you'd have a reasonable case to present.  The judge would have to determine if being able to monitor your lines on a baby monitor satisfies the law. Personally I think it would but who knows what a judge or CO would think. 
    • Sounds like event was well attended all 3 days just over 28k total.   we went on Friday and had a great time participating in the bird dog parade. Scored some deals on some dog stuff and even got some nice freebies.   hope it makes it back to SD again. Next year is in Schaumburg Illinois so probably won’t attend. 
    • Battled the winds yesterday but fishing was excellent. Couldn’t find the big perch but managed to get a limit of eyes here in South Dakota   
    •   Winning the Daytona 500 is huge.   The only thing better, is winning it clean.   Move or be moved is fair.   But I could only imagine the shower of beer cans onto the track if roles had been reversed.      
    • Where did you get your subfloor? How is it holding up? 
    •     thats what I have heard also..  I have put a tip up out on the lake and stay in my home, less than 200 feet, no issue...  could see it always...
    • The dump and run brings home the HJE trophy for the 60th anniversary of the race and on the 20th anniversary of the #3’s win of the race.   Any thoughts?   I’m only a part time fan these days but it seems like the move is totally acceptable these days.  Or is it just if you’re part of racing royalty?  20 years ago there woulda been a fight.   I will say I enjoyed the race and glad it was good since I’ve had to sit on my butt all day not feeling good.  Oh, and the Monster Energy marketing gals don’t suck.
