      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 .

Zipple Report for Friday Feb 15

Recommended Posts

SSSTaxidermy

Well we finally get up to LOW, at Zipple Bay around the 1:30 pm time range...was fishing in 28 1/2 ft of water. started off real well, as I think we caught 4 eyes *2 keepers within 5 min of being there...Thinking we were on the mother load! However until dark, we only caught 5 more with 1 of those having worthy of hitting the pail. Lots of activiy on the vex but they got real picky, FAST. I tossed everything I had at them and they still made the call! Temps are supposed to warm up today, so hopefully that sparks some action. Good luck to all fishing on LOW this weekend.

Thanks for the report. I hope things perked up for you. We are heading up to Zipple Bay Resort on Wednesday. First time on the lake. Fish out of portables the first day and a sleeper the next. I understand Nick has roads plowed out "all over the place". Any timely tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Well yesterday was a decent day of fishing, but once again we no more drop the lines down and boom....pulling up eyes left and right. Nothing with any size. My dads hook, caught nearly all of them with a plain hook. He is a very simple and plain fisherman. He always believes that one line should always be a plain hook. He grew up fishing with plain hooks and caught many many fish that way. So of course, me and my brothers heard all about, why we should take off those expensive hooks were were trying and go simple. But before noon we caught 11 eyes in 2-3 hrs but nothing for the pail. It wasn't until 4ish, we started to see some activity. We caught 6 more, with 3 of them worthy of the seeing the freezer. Still haven't latched onto a 20 something to catch and release Everything has been really small...I think we might more out a little bit deeper this morning to see if we can get some bigger ones, it tough to do that when you got fish tugging at the line too. I will let you know how we did today, Sunday. Good luck all

On a side note, My cousin was up here fishing (at a different location) and landed a 45 inch pike...Weighed 25 lbs 10 oz and had a 21 inches of girth. I seen this hog first hand last night. Very nice fish. He is making some taxidermist happy...

      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.
