      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 .

Schmidt Lake

Recommended Posts

Just curious, has anyone fished this lake just outside of Buffalo close to Beebe Lake? It's shore comes right up to Hwy 34 where there is a launch ramp with no trespassing signs on it. It is chock full of dead fall and I was wondering how the bass fishing was there.

Toxic topic - do some searches in this forum for a lot more info. But long story short - That isn't an acknowledged official access, and if the water's edge isn't within the public highway easement (like now), you would be tresspassing to launch there.

What a shame it looks so inviting there. Is the owner just being anal about the access or has there been trouble with less than courteous boat owners, ie, garbage etc?

From what I hear the owner pays to have it stocked and my guess is he doesn't like to share.

Can someone private own a lake that big? The shores touch both Hwy 34 and Hwy 35. If you can get on it I think you could fish it. I was thinking of a fishing tube or something like that. I have seen a small twelve foot boat on it some mornings when I go to work. He launches it on the southeast corner of the lake. He leaves the trailer right in the water still attached to his car.

How far back should I go? I checked back to the beginning of this year and found nothing. Maybe I am searching wrong. I simply type Schmidt Lake in the search box, but nothing comes up.

I've had many questions about this lake as well. Anyone care to clarify EXACTLY what the public highway easement is in MN? I keep getting different stories and I certainly would love to give this lake a shot, but it seems like too much trouble is too emminent. Is there anyone out there worth talking to who may grant access? I won't bug the post about this subject anymore, just for the record. Thanks guys.

50' from the center of the road, which unfortunately is much farther now with the low water. If the water comes back up, the fence has to come down. smile.gif

My family lives on the lake. We are on the farm on the north east side. Most of the lake is owned by the Schmits, they have put the fence up to keep trafic off the lake and litter. Wouldnt be my first choice but it is theres.

      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.
