      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 .

Been going Banning Junction 18 to 65 to 2 to 46 to 71 for several years. Used to go up 169 but too many towns.

If the roads are good it's an easy drive.

I like to go 94 west to Clearwater or Clearlake , which ever, and jog over to hwy 10. Stay on 10 to Motley. Then take 64 north which will change to 72 just south of Bemidji. Stay on 72 to Baudette. Driving steady and around the speed limits, 5 hours. About 10 towns to slow down for.

Hi me and my 6 buddies coming from Missouri staying in St Cloud for the night and heading to low early mourning. Can anyone tell me what's the avg time it takes from st cloud to low with good roads and the avg time with bad roads? Randmcnally told us to take 371 which becomes 71 continue onto 72 to 11 to 172 to riverbend. I just want to know what time we need to leave the hotel to make sure he hit Riverbend resort by noon

Thanks Dustin

I don't go through St. Cloud so this is just a guess, but I'd say haulin' a$$ would get you there in 4 hours and a typical drive would be 5 hours??? Maybe someone who knows for sure will post also.

Dust: I take the route from the west suburbs as stated above using Hwy 10. I make it from Plymouth in a shade over five hours, traveling maybe 5 over the posted. St Cloud is 1 hour from plymouth, so I'd say you can make it in a shade over 4 hours. Tip, get over to hwy 10 as soon as possible. Stay on 10 if you can. The going through St Cloud has lots of slow lights and you go around to the west quite a bit.. I have a place at Wheelers and travel the 10, 64 71 & 72 quite often.. Lot less town and speed limits are 65 and 60 most of the way.. Kaz

Dust: The 10, 64, etc routes are major highways and get continous plowing. They are never closed that I can remember.. 371 is main route too, but I think it is slower through "B" town, with all of the stops and go... Kaz

I know everyone has been wondering...... Just how far would a JATO propel a lets say, 200 pound man hunkered down in his otter sled with only the necessary gear?

There was a fella a few years back that tried that trick with a JATO attached to his Impala. According to the Darwin awards he shoulda had some sort of a throttleing device.

We generally go the Moose Lake route too....this year I'll be picking up some buddies from the Minneapolis airport.

What would be the best route from the airport? I was thinking about the Hwy 10 route up to Clearwater...but not sure...it may be easier to head up I-35 from the airport. What do you guys think?

Head right up 35E as it will be much faster than going through the Northwest metro.

Doop: Take the 494 exit from the Airport and follow it around the southwest side of town to 94 west bound. Off at Clearwater and over to Hwy 10. That's the best from the Airport with less traffic and simple're than making all of the turns going through town.. I live in Plymouth and 10. 64, 71, & 72 is the fastest.. Kaz

Depends on your side of the cities I guess - being a northeaster for years I have been doing the 35E, Moose Lake, Floodwood, Deer River, Northome, Shooks and on up route - If I lived in the far west metro I would do the St. Cloud, Little Falls, Motley, Ackley, Bemidji, Shooks, and on up route.

      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.

      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.
