      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 .

Preference point. I guess it will be another few nights for the flatheads on the river and some extra Morel picking for me.

Good luck to the rest that have not checked.

Hammer Handle

I got mine fore the second choice season, which makes me happy.

Have to find out later if my wife and niece got one.

I am not REAL happy though, as my Dad is not drawn again. 4 years in a row he wasn't drawn!! Because of him, our land is full of turkeys. And, because of him we have the land.

That just bites....

No hunting for the neighbors either...until after I am done. They are going to be bummed....

HavocTec

Okay now my PP was 3 last year. The MN DNR said I would get a tag this year if I app.So I did that and just checked my number and it said I did not get drawn, and my PP is still at a 3 so just what in the heck is going on? Do they know what they are doing? A guy plans for this then they sucker punch ya.Don't get me wrong I love MN, but I do think they could use some help on the wildlife management end of things....This is not the fisrt I have heard of this either..

Hammer handle and Havoc, you can call the DNR and try to understand why you weren't picked (hammer's dad). I was unaware that they even had a 3pts. Some places are truly over subscribed and it is possible that you have to wait more than 3 years. I can't really say about your exact situation, but if you haven't been picked 4 yrs in a row its probably not because the DNR is dropping the ball. Its obviously a high demand area, or a low permit area.

You can always look into a surplus permit in the same zone you hunt, it just won't be the same days.

Oh yeah...and I got a preference point too. I didn't make a second choice cause we weren't interested in hunting a different season. Looks like we will be chasing with stick and string this year. I can't wait.

Well we didn't drawn this spring. Plus a total of 22 surplus left over. We've never seen it so picked over for this zone but that's the way it goes I guess. It's gonna be tough to get a liscense in our usually area with 4 of us looking. May need to scout some new areas in different permit areas this spring. \:\(

      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.
    • kelly-p
      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!
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      I spotted them also this evening out from McKinley. A few more days yet before I will give it a try! Cliff
