      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 .

The lake gets a lot of traffic from pleasure boaters and the access fills up quick. The access isnt great but you shouldnt have problems launching. I dont walleye fish much in the summer but this winter I figured Id try it out. From what I found is that their are lots of little eyes 10-12" and a few bigger 20"+ (which I dont keep) but not much in between. As far as other species... Bass, not much better than many of lakes in the area. Pike, a few nice ones but you probably wont catch much. Muskies, dont even get me started! I tried fishing them on more than one occasion with no success. Panfish are small, its famous for it stunted crappies...

Join the club! All I hear is Owasso produces big muskies, and all I get is lured into a big zero. As soon as I see a pic of an Owasso Muskie, maybe I'll be back...Actually, I'll probably hit Owasso this weekend because I'm so gullible. tongue.gif

Turnup's info is right on in my book. We have seen a few northern in Owasso - one day had two big ones follow a lure in & decide that the boat made a nice cool shadow for them to lurk in. Both stuck around for a few minutes so we had a great look at them. Both appeared to be 30 inches plus which is a big northern in the metro in my book. Good fun even if we didn't hook the toothy things. grin.gif

I have wanted to summer walleye fish owasso, but I normally just bass fish it. In the winter we killed little waleye (8-12) inchers and then later in the winter we found a crappie honey-hole, but most were smaller (6-8) inchers. Biggest winter crappie there was 11 inches and my biggest winter walleye was 18 inches.

My friend lives on this lake and his neighbor walleye fishes a lot. He said to fish in 10-15 FOW by the ski jump. He said around the ski jump there is a rock pile that he kills them on.

I tihnk I am gonna try this weekend...I wil post my results.

Good Luck guys

Was out last night and was very supprised at the size of the bass in this lake. I had about 6 fish 14-15", two 17", and one 21.5" !! The big one must have been pushing 6.5 lbs, very nice fish I realy never new they were in there.

      I seen in the  paper it will be at Leech lake again this year.

      I was worried about the wire size too. Thanks ProV. I guess I can’t avoid it. 
    • fishingstar
      you don't have any wires on your 7 pin plug that is heavy enough.  
    • PRO-V
      I would run wire straight to the battery with an in line fuse at the battery and use a separate 2 prong connector at the trailer.

      Unfortunately they have not found them yet. Freeze up  with the thin ice has really hampered the search. Too much ice for boats and not enough to travel on. As the ice thickens the searchers are working their way deeper. Such a sad situation.
    • KidMoe
      I’m hoping I can get some advice from you fine folks. I’m looking to install a small electric winch on my snowmobile trailer to load my skid house. I’m wondering if I can power it off the 7 pin connector?  From what I can find, my truck is fused at 10 amp and most of the winches I’m finding pull somewhere around 50 to 60 amps at 1500 lbs or so. I’m wondering what I could do to still run it off the 7 pin. Do I need to add a battery? Maybe a capacitor? i appreciate any thoughts you might have!

      I spotted them also this evening out from McKinley. A few more days yet before I will give it a try! Cliff

      First fisherman seen trying their luck today out from McKinley park access and Stuntz Bay access.

      Definitely not surprised with this change. One might as well license the wheel house anyway.  Keeping it legally “occupied” is a pain just to avoid buying the license.

      A public meeting to discuss a draft transition plan for Hill Annex Mine State Park will take place Thursday, Nov. 30, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Calumet City Hall, 932 Gary St., Calumet. Legislation in 2017 guided five local partners (DNR, Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Board, Itasca County, City of Calumet and the Western Mesabi Mine Planning Board) to work on an alternate operating model for local management and operation of the Hill Annex Mine. The work group has concluded that operation of the site as a park under any jurisdiction is extremely unlikely and is proposing a feasibility study to explore other local economic development opportunities that preserve the history of Hill Annex Mine, promote existing amenities along the Mesabi Trail, and better connect the cities of Calumet and Marble. At the public meeting, the work group will hold a facilitated discussion to review feedback on the draft project report. The report will be submitted to the 2018 Legislature. Interested members of the public are welcome to attend and participate in the discussion. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
