      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 .

OK - We've just got blasted with a bunch of snow and it looks as though we may finally have a good old fashioned MN winter.

Maybe you are looking for a brief escape? My wife and I went to Maui this past October. I put together a website of our trip. You'll see a number of references to Northern MN and the BWCAW.

Now I'm not a writer or a photographer and have never done a web site before. So....grab your favorite Don Ho CD, mix up a Mai Tai and come along for the ride. Please take a minute and sign the guest book and include where you are from.

PS: I'm not making any money off this site - I hope it doesnt break any rules to post it here. If anyone here is ever planning a trip to Maui, I'll be happy to help you out with any questions you might have.

Aloha!

Leaky, Holly Hana you did a super job documenting your vacation. I started to read and knew I didn't have enough time to finish so I want to get back to it later.

It sure would help anyone planning a trip to Hawaii to take a look. Take Care.

Went there before too, recognized a few of the same places. I could go to Hawaii every year I love it there so much. We went on a submarine and I went charter fishing too. Had a blast.

Hey Leaky,

Nice website! I like the video of you running into Steven Tyler! HaHaHa! Anyways, never been to Maui, but I have been to Kauai and the Big Island twice. Lots to see and do over there. I wish I was there right now...I love going over there! I am kinda hoping to go back next winter...we will see. My wife and I really liked Kauai alot- you should go there sometime.

Later,

Justin

Really cool Leaky!

I was there for my first time in July for someones wedding. We didn't get the time to explore the place like you did so I appreciate seeing some of the other places we though about going to. We were based out of Kaanapali Shores. Nice hotel but not like where you stayed.

We just seemed to be there at the wrong time. Bad surf, drought and a couple wildfires on the hills. Sure looks better in your production! Nice work!

Oh, and yeah, your last piece of advice: Upgrade to 1st class if you can for that flight! crazy.gif We didn't and halfway across the Pacific, I would have paid the pilot directly to get a couple seats but they were all full.

Justin--sounds like you're gettin that Jelly of the Month Club membership for your Christmas bonus, huh? grin.gif

Thanks guys. It was quite the adventure. I really liked the Hana side of the Island, which would lead me to believe Kauai would be awesome.

Casey - that Big Beach Vid is my favorite. I must have watched that thing 20 times now. That little girl running to the water and back just kills me. The Steven Tyler thing was pretty cool as well.

If you haven't watched the Paia vid, the chick that talks about pizza sauce being made with "red dirt from the earth" was also classic Paia.

Hi Picks

Comcast went and changed up the format on the website and I can't figure out how to get the links to work again. If you want to do some research prior to going, check out Trip Advisor dot com. They have Hawaii (Maui) forums that were a great help prior to us going.

      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.
