      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 .

It is very crispy here! I have placed restrictions on myself, and would suggest that for anyone else. The risk for a campfire may be small, but the potential consequences terrible. Many trees are dropping leaves, and ferns and blueberry plants appear dead. I would suggest a campstove, or at most a charcoal cookfire. On the bright side, the weather is comfortable, few annoying insects, and decent fishing. At this moment there is a pine fly hatch going on, but it does not seem to be affecting the fishing as mayflys xometimes do. Tonight's pic: e8550eb7.jpg

according to the ash river center you can still have campfires in the rings. She said it could change in a couple days if its dry.

Just received an email from the DNR. Effective Friday Aug 17th at 8:00 a.m. an increase in restrictions will take place. For Cook, Lake, and St. Louis Counties a full fire ban will be in place. NO CAMPFIRES allowed even in designated fire rings due to the dry conditions. Only exception is campfires are allowed in the abovce counties that are within 1 mile of Lake Superior and are in a designated/patrolled campground. So if you are in these counties and are further away from Lake Superior than 1 mile then campfires are prohibited.

Bummer! I was camping up on Namakan this past weekend and campfires were still allowed. Looks like I picked the right weekend! smile.gif

FROM THE NPS -

VOYAGEURS NATIONAL PARK ISSUES BURNING RESTRICTIONS

Severe drought conditions and lack of rainfall have increased fire danger that continues to plague Northeastern Minnesota. In cooperation with area counties, the Minnesota DNR, U.S. Forest Service, and the Bureau of Indian Affairs, fire restrictions will be implemented in Voyageurs National Park.

Effective Friday, August 17, 2007 at 8:00 am, Voyageurs National Park will prohibit all campfires within the park. The following restrictions will apply throughout the park:

Not Allowed:

· recreational fires (campfires)

· charcoal or paper fueled fires or grills

Allowed:

· gas and propane fired camp stoves, grills, or similar devices

“We ask for everyone’s understanding and cooperation during this critical time,” VNP Superintendent Miller said. “We will remove these restrictions as soon as conditions within the park become favorable.”

Fire restrictions on still as of 8/23/07, 2pm. We have had very little rain in the last few weeks, just about 2 tenths of an inch. It will take some serious rain before fires are allowed.

      I have a few spots that I check but if you just go slow and keep your eye on the depth finder the schools of fish are scattered everywhere.  If you see fish, you will catch em

      Fish Lake Baits in Harris had some nice large leeches a couple of weeks ago. Cliff

      After 4 days on a Rainy lake houseboat we managed a walleye fry 3 nights. They where on the deeper mid lake reefs which is no secret, but they wanted minnows. That was the hard part, finding bigger minnows. To my surprise I was able to land a few each afternoon on 5" plastic rigged. 2 boats, 6 people, 47 eyes where clicked biggest 24", smallest 6" and every stop in between. We did fish some bays and the pike were willing to play!city

      The OP was given the system by someone else who was having problems with it. @TNFL If the above statement is correct, try it on your system and see if the fuse blows.  The problem may have been on the other person's rig.   Is it worth contacting the manufacturer for tech help or sending in for testing/service?
    • Wheres_Walter
      Sunday and Monday we caught lots of 15-16" fish at 12-14 FOW.  All on Chartruese jigs with half a crawler.   A couple in the high teens and one 21" as well.  
    • Wanderer
      Leeches are somewhat seasonal and not as prevalent later in the open water season (now).  It's the nature of the bait. Vados would be my first call between the Cities and Mille Lacs but you could always try calling a few shops on the southern side of the lake.

      Back in the old days..... before I retired and we used to come up labor day, I used to fish steep breaks into deep water.  My favorite spot was the north/west tip of Schmidts Island.   There is a little flat than breaks into like 40 feet out in front, more or less, of the dock that goes with the little chalet style cabin.   There are probably other spots along that headolakes shore of the island that are good, so check it out with modern electronics.   I don't know if that area is still working or not.   Jigging raps might work there.  I used a rig with a pretty heavy sinker so I could tip toe over the rocks up and down the break.   Caught what was my PB walleye for a long time on that spot.   Neighbor got a 30 incher somewhere along there.  This is all historical, so maybe not much help anymore.  BTW I typically fished there in the evening.   Never really tried it during the day.
