      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 .

You can't beat playoff football in the snow. If the Giants come through, we'll have another game on the tundra.

Two words, Friggin' Pack. So sick of commentators stroken on Favre. I respect the guy, but can't stand the cheeseheads.

That's classic, old-school football.

Most hate that weather. I played in a game like that back in high school, and it was a fun experience.

I knew someone would make this an "I hate the Packers" thread.

It would have been an amazing game to be at, let alone the Packers win, but the snow, Favre and Driver throwing snowballs and Grant putting his fumbles behind him and just plain going off!!!! Come on Giants!

Well, Shiner, I look at the address bar and it says FISHINGMINNESOTA, not FISHINGGREENBAY, so I think hating on the Pack is pretty understandable. ;\)

I was out there for the game and it was worth every cent I spent on tickets. That game reminded me of a game I went to about 5 years ago against the Browns, couldn't see the field come the 3rd quarter. The Pack are going to be tough, they should handle the G-men like they did in week 2. I do like the Pack's chances against NE IF they beat the Bolts. I think the Packers DB's will be able to cover their wide receivers. People say, well Moss will eat them up. Well if I remember right it was McKenzie who kept getting burned and he is no longer on the team so it will be Mr. Harris covering him and he will get the job done.

I don't hate the Pack, but I don't think I will ever root for them mainly because of the way the announcers go out of their way to compliment Farve. I have all the respect in the world for #4 for what he has done but I just can't take it when Madden or someone else will take something Farve does and make it out into something more than it is. As an example, so no one thinks I am just out of my mind. In this weekends game, they went out of their way to talk about how Farve is just "so aware of his surroundings" because he was pointing at the replay on the "Tundra Vision" to get McCarthy to challenge a play. Like he was the only one to realize there was a replay board at the field. I guarantee you there were 72,000 fans and about 100 players and coaches who were also looking at that screen but the announcer wanted to give Farve credit like he was the first one to ever do that and probably installed the darn thing himself.

He is one of the greatest and I love to watch him play but it is the announcers that ruin it for me.

Come now, the packers d-backs will not be able to cover the pats recievers. They couldnt handle the cowboys recievers and their core is nothing compared to what the pats bring. Harris has looked absolutely silly against the best of the best recievers which is the caliber that Moss falls into. The CB's are good at the point of contact but with the way Brady's line gives him time to throw the ball once the recievers get passed the point of contact it will be over in a heartbeat. And lets not forget that Atari Bibgy is horrible in pass coverage. And lets not also forget that its much more than Moss and Stallworth. How will the nickel and dime backs handle Welker and Gaffney? And how will the LB's handle Big Ben Watson? No team yet has had the tools to stop the whole package that the pats bring. And now they are showing that they really can run the ball with Maroney as well. The saving grace for the pack if they get there is that the pats pass defense has shown alot of weakness lately and that Favre should light things up as well. The pack might actually be able to pull off the gameplan that the jags played out. Keep everything in front of you, tackle well, and stay away from the big play. Hope that in enough 10-12 play drives you can get a turnover or two. And unlike the jags, the packers can move the ball much better on offense and put a lot of points up as well. If the pack tries to blitz NE its over, Brady is a QB that hopes you will blitz and he will destroy it. But this discussion is pretty premature as well. I remember about 4 years ago when the pack were the hottest team in the NFC and many peoples pick for the SB and the vikings went in and knocked them down. The giants are playing some pretty good ball and are a totally different team from week 2. They could put some serious heat on Favre and could possibly make him throw a few up for grabs. The giants are no slouch and i dont see the pack rolling over them like in week 2 or like what they did against the seahawks.

      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.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources today released a new plan guiding management of the Sand Dunes State Forest near Zimmerman for the next five years. The revised operational plan arose from a series of meetings with local landowners, conservationists and others.  “After hearing stakeholder concerns about the original 2013 plan, we led an extensive public engagement process that informed this revised approach,” said Forrest Boe, director of the DNR Forestry Division. “The new plan does a good job of balancing a variety of values and interests.” The revised plan addresses stakeholder concerns about timber management, recreational opportunities, forestry roads, and School Trust land management, as well as addressing rare species management. The plan also addresses several specific concerns that arose during the public engagement process, such as aesthetic considerations related to timber harvests next to private lands, and tree management within the Ann Lake Campground. The operational plan is based in sound natural resource science and reflects the DNR’s goal of sustainable forest management for economic, environmental, and recreational benefits. The plan shortens the management timeframe from 50 years in the 2013 plan to 10 years. It also provides more direction related to recreation, School Trust lands, and forest roads. Science-based adaptive management tools will be used to inform decisions on restoring, protecting, and managing rare plants and wildlife. “The DNR will continue to engage with people interested in the Sand Dunes State Forest through regular updates and meetings,” Boe said. “We want to build on the relationships we’ve developed over the past year and a half.” Sand Dunes State Forest, established by the Minnesota Legislature in 1945, consists of about 6,000 acres that are owned and managed by the state. It features a variety of plant communities and landscapes—including pine plantations, rare sand dunes, wetlands, woodlands, oak savanna, and prairie. It is home to more than two dozen rare plants and animals. Located in Sherburne County about an hour northwest of the Twin Cities, it is the closest state forest to the Twin Cities metro area. The forest is a popular recreation destination for hikers, horseback riders, hunters, campers, and others. The revised plan, along with further information about the public engagement process, can be found on the project website at mndnr.gov/forestry/sand-dunes/index.html.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has issued its annual ice safety warning for lakes with winter aeration systems.  Aeration creates areas of thin ice and open water that are extremely hazardous to people and pets. Open water areas can shift or change shapes depending on weather conditions, and leaks may develop in airlines, creating other areas of weak ice or open water. The updated list of aerated lakes and more information is available at mndnr.gov/eco/lakeaeration. “We’re urging people to use caution anytime they venture onto lake ice, especially at night,” said Amanda Yourd, DNR hydrologist and aeration coordinator. “Extreme care should be taken on aerated lakes. Watch for the large orange and black warning signs at high use public accesses and the required thin ice signs around open water areas.” Aeration systems help prevent winterkill of fish populations by adding oxygen to the lake, and in certain situations to protect shorelines from ice damage. They are generally operated from the time the lakes freeze until the ice breaks up in the spring. About 280 lakes will have aeration systems operating on them this winter. Private hatchery operators also use aeration systems, usually on small lakes without public accesses. A permit from the DNR is required to install and operate an aeration system. Permit holders must publish public notices, post warning signs, and inspect the systems at least once every seven days. Liability insurance is generally required of private groups or citizens operating aeration systems in protected waters. Watch for notices in your local media identifying aerated lakes in your area. DNR staff ensure permittees comply with all requirements and regularly inspect systems for safety. Some municipalities may have ordinances that prohibit entering into the thin ice marked area and/or prohibit the night use of motorized vehicles on lakes with aeration systems in operation.  These local regulations are often posted at accesses where they apply. Questions concerning aeration or thin ice can be answered by calling a regional or area fisheries office or the Department of Natural Resources toll-free at 888-MINNDNR (888-646-6367).
