      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 .

How is fishing in light rain or after it rains. With the cooler temps how does this affect fishing. I probably haven't fished in the rain in years. Just curious how one would do on a day like this. Thanks for any advise.

I just got a boat this year and have this question as well. It doesn't seem to be stormy at all but would the bass/walleye/panfish bite much in this weather? Tomorrow might be crappy as well.

It wasnt raining, but I have done ok the last 2 times out, yesterday(monday) and Friday. Bass action seemed to be about the same as when it was hot, maybe a little better in the shallow then before. I would also like to hear what some of the more experience fisherpeople have to say about how the fish are reacting to this weather shift.

Fishing in this type of weather is actually my favorite time to go. I know it isn't a whole lot of fun sitting in the rain but it sure seems to me that the fish seem more active than usual. I was out on a lake fishing with spinner baits on Sunday and caught literally every species (for this lake)of fish except for a sunny, bullhead, and carp. It was quite a time. Plus it is nice not having all of the pleasure boaters flying by you. Hope this helps. Good Luck!!

I agree, I really enjoy this kind of weather, and the fish seem to be biting good, had one of my better outings yesterday in the clouds/sprinkles, and I have had a great lake to myself most of the time, maybe 1 other boat at times.

Its just going to keep getting better!

I have had some of my best fishing success in the rain or overcast days. Big fish like days like that.

As long as it's not pouring out, I will go out and brave the weather to fish. Definately give it a try. You will also have less competition and less recreational boaters bothering you.

Fished sunday and monday evenings on tonka. Weather wasn't the best. We had a hard time finding the ski's. On Monday I brought my boy along and had a blast with the crappies in the rocks. Caught quite a few decent ones 12-14". Also caught 3-4 walleyes in the mix. Odd but there were tons of panfish stacked up along the long edge from the rocks. Marked them tightly stacked probably a 1/4 mile or more. Wish I had brought marcum along to check things out. O wells. Will be out there again with the boy. If your out there come say hi, black alumacraft w/ 90 yami. We'll probably hit the west tonight around rocks.

      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.
