      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 .

Newspaper Home Delivery For Less

I have the StarTribune delivered to our house 7 days a week. At a family gathering I was told to call the paper and ask for either the $1.75 for the whole week or $1.50 for Wed. thru Sunday. I was paying $4.29 a week. That's $91.00 vs $223.00 for the whole year. The normal price for Sunday only is over 100.00 per year. I told them I was thinking of cancelling.

Ottertailguy, I just called and asked about the program you mentioned and found out that it is only good for 13 weeks and then they put you back on the regular deal and your cost goes up to something like $4 per week. Keep your eye on the mail box as evidently you will be given notice end willhave a chance to cut it back to whatever other program you wish. Too much hassle for me I am going to just stay with the sunday paper at $2

Just keep telling them you want to cancel, and they will keep giving you the lowest rates, I would imagine.

I don't get the paper anymore though.

I'm wondering what other companies are run this way. Maybe they all are these days but you have to ask. I thought others would like to know what this fish wrap companing was charging.

I did this .50 a week for a year deal, but I don't anymore. Be sure you read the fine print and ask how long you have to pay. I was getting bills in the mail and was paying $6.50 every time I got a bill, then one Sunday the paper quit coming, so I called and asked why and they said that I didn't pay my bill, I of course knew I had and told them that I kept getting bills, but didn't know why since I sent the checks and they cleared the bank each time- I was told that since I didn't pay the entire $26.00 by some time frame that my subscription reverted to a standard cost and I owed them money. The last check had already cleared the bank otherwise I would have stopped payment on it. I told them to put a note in my account to never call me again. Now, was this my fault, maybe, The bills that came never had the amount correct on them, there was never a $26.00 option on the bill. I figured it to be a screw up on their part and made my payments as needed, I thought. For a company that is laying people off because they are not selling papers anymore you would think they would work for you a little more, now they will never get another .10 out of me. So long story short, read the terms of the payment on "deals" they are sending out.

I told my father in-law last week after they got back from Florida. So he called but they told him that the $91.00 is over. So then he said he was going to cancel and then gal on the phone told him that she could offer him $111 for a year. It's still better than regular price so he took it. Yes, the newspapers across the country are on tough times but I don't think charging people different prices for their product is the answer.

      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.
