      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 .

I am planning to come up next weekend to fish lake trout on lake sag and was looking for some help. I have very little knowledge of the lake so any help would be appreciated. We are going to be winter camping South of lake sag on Romance lake and plan to portage (bushwack) onto lake sag for a day trip of lake trout fishing. We will be walking so we will be limited to the south shore area of the lake. Has anyone fished this area of the lake in the winter time? Are there deep areas available that will hold lakers? Jigging, Tip ups, live bait, frozen ciscoes, depth, etc?

As mentioned before, any information that would help a first timer on the lake would be appreciated. I don't need specifics but general information to point me in the right direction would be great. I can do the rest.

Thanks in advance

If you are going to make it up to sag and you head north straight through the shortest route I would head up around one of the small islands or off one of the points find 35-50 ft of water and try your luck. I would assume that the ice has to be pushing over 20" up there now also. So hope that you have a good back and knees because you will be on them by the time you are done. The ice on that lake always seems to be harder for some reason. If you wanted to head to another good spot go to the western side of Clark Island. About 100 yds off shore it should be close to 40 ft and I know that I have done good there before.

Silver & Yellow Pimps with minnow, tip-ups with suckers or shiners, there is a post floating around on here right now for favorite Laker lures, lots of good ideas, and tactics.

Berky is right on the money. 35-50 ft, with your favorite laker lure. We have always had pretty good luck with blue's and pink's in a variety of lures, jigs, etc.

Ice right off the corridor was pushing 26-28 inches last weekend. I recommend getting in that 35-45 ft zone right adjacent to deeper water.

Travel on the lake isnt as good as it was a couple weeks ago, the big winds have made all sorts of drifts all across that part of the lake. For the most part its pretty hardpacked and should be good for skiing. We had luck with ciscoes on the tipups hanging just off the bottom.

      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.
