      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 .

Rum is Finished for Year

Recommended Posts

Daze Off

Quick note - passed the Rum this AM and it has most definately been lowered. Hard to imagine how all those fish survive the winter with such low levels.

Last fish of the season was 17.5" smallie on 3" tube. Not a bad way to end....

That sucks that it's been lowered. I'm sure some peeps will launch though. It's pure mud below the ramp, but someone will.

Nice way to end, but you still have Anoka and da sippi

The Miss went down in front of my house today another 6 inches, I can get my lift out now, smirk.gif fishing from here upriver is jet territory from here on to Spring. tongue.gif

EB -

I spent this past Saturday on the ole Miss up in Brianerd and we had a really poor day on all fronts - weather stunk as it started raining, then sleeting, and occasionally snowing just as we got up there and it lasted most of the morning. Pretty stiff wind to boot. CCCCooolllldddd!

Fishing was also poor - no good bait available and nothing was interested in plastics at all. Did not have a single bite from a smallie and when we went into a backwater where the crappie bite had been hot we caught the following: pike (6 lbs, 8 lbs, 15 lbs, hammerhandle), dogfish (2 about 8-10 lbs each), and about 8 crappie only 3 of which were worth keeping. Water was high and fast. Was on the water from about 8:00 am until dark.

Should've stayed home and went Sunday.....LOL

I'm done for the year unless I get an invite from someone and the weather is decent. Putting the boat away and bringing the tackle inside.

Probably no more fishing until the Missouri trip in March/April. frown.giffrown.giffrown.gif

My buddy has a knack for finding hung up crankbaits in the trees. Plus it's amazing what people are tossing for their presentations.

Like the small floating rap with a 1/2 oz rubber core weight 4 inches from the lure. Yup that'll get em. Or the 1 oz fireball jig and tiny lil junk grub for a trailer. I've seen these and more this year alone. And that small floater rap is mine now. Good for the trout but not for a bass, and not 10 feet in a tree either. LOL

      Per the DNR news release dated November 20th:  “Wheeled fish houses, which formerly were considered portable – and thus excluded from licensing requirements for shelters – will now need to be licensed,” said Al Stevens, fisheries survey and systems consultant with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “In the past, anglers using wheelhouses could use them without shelter licenses as long as they were occupied, including overnight.” The change pursued by the DNR and enabled by 2017 legislation accompanied hunting and angling fee increases. An annual resident shelter license is $16. A three-year license is $43. Owners of houses to be rented pay $31 annually or $88 for a three-year license. A valid license tag must be attached to the outside of the fish house in a readily visible location. ~~~~~ Any ideas on how to go about attaching them since they're no longer stickers like they used to be? Apparently you can't put them inside in a window facing out per the 'outside' requirement of the law.

      so here’s the scoop , as most fishermen know most of the resorts up here started letting wheeler and sleds out on the lake last weekend. That does not mean you can go any where you want as the winds have shifted the ice a couple times and opened up a few cracks . Check with the resort you access and stay in the areas that have been checked out.
      The fishing has been pretty good.
      I have had a few projects that were put off untell I got laid off from the golf course and mother nature again made my projects more challenging. I’m making progress slow and steady and maybe this time I have learned my lesson not to put these off when its 70 and sunny. Chasing breaking 80 at the golf course has got me processed.
      From the looks of it there a good chance we will have all our sleepers on the lake by the 7th of dec.
      My plans are again to go out of Hillmens resort and help Buddy hillmen with his road. He has built a 2 story house that may or may not be on the lake as its huge, I think it can sleep 8 to 10. Its crazy big 14 by 28.

      I appreciate the feedback. We love being out on the ice, so we'll keep plugging away.  Good luck to all this winter and be safe out 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
