      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 .

There are a few different patterns on our lakes right now. Mille Lacs continues to exceed expectations, it is just awesome out there this year. We have been taking many of our customers over to Mille Lacs. With the chance to catch 30,40,50 fish in a few hours it is tough to go anywhere else. The mud flats and the gravel areas are working best for us. Crawlers or leeches on a live bait rig is like walleye candy, they can't get enough. Gull has been a little spotty for walleyes. Most of the better fish are up in the weeds and a little tougher to get at. We've been able to pull spinners through the weeds and pluck a walleye out now and then. Out on the weed edges all we seem to be able to find are the little buggers. The whitefish chain has been pretty consistent. We are seeing lots of nice fish in 12-22 feet. Spinners, live bait rigs, or split shot rigs, tipped with a redtail, leech, or Gulp nightcrawler are all catching fish. Weedline points and inside turns are holding fish on whitefish. Lots of pike too, so be prepared to retie every so often. Pelican is also producing a few walleyes. It is different from day to day on Pelican and it has taken some searching.

The bass have been puting on the feedbag now. Plastics or weed weasles tipped with a redtail chub are slamming bass. Most lakes are going good. Our favorites have been Hubert, Gull, North Long, and Cullen.

The pike have been going good on the smaller lakes. Nothing huge but good action in anything with a spinner or bobber fishing with medium to large sucker minnows. Early mornings have been the best time.

Good Luck this weekend. Here are a few pics from recent trips: http://www.sportlandbait.com/brainerd_nisswa_fishing_pictures.html

Bad idea. Mille Lacs is just too good right now. It sure can spoil an angler.

Just kidding! Good Luck and have fun.

I heard they had a huge bug hatch the last 2 nights so be where of that. It probably will still fish way above average the way the bite has been this year on ML.

      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.

      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.

      I am a lazy angler, so winter fishing suits me fine.  I typically fish with pike suckers or chubs on a plain #6 hook 6" off the bottom, and do just fine on ice.  As they said, the best bite times are sunrise-10:30am and 3:00pm-sunset; although I do occasionally catch some in the middle of the day.  I have caught very few walleyes after dark.
