      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 .

It's been just over 2 weeks since I was on 16 but we did pretty well, steady action all day, some nice sized saugers, some perch mixed in, and walleyes right up to the slot but nothing in the slot on that trip. Jigging spoons and shiners under a deadstick. I was pretty satisfied with our catch. Going back in 2 weeks, hopefully you guys will have some good info to report when you get back.

We were up on 16 Sat 3/1 and Sun 3/2 (a.m.). To sum it up Saturday - Slow, Sunday - Slower in 27.5 feet. Friday 2/29 was a better day at Arnesen's Reef but no size and majority was perch with some eyes and saugers. Fish at 16 were bigger but fewer to be found and the weather Sunday didn't help matters.

I left the lake from 16 mile on Monday morning. The Road was blown shut out by 16 mile. We able able to get two wheeled houses off by driving on the east side of the road for 1 1/2 mile, then the road was OK to drive on. We were off the lake by 10:00 am. Looked the plows were just about to head out onto the lake when we were leaving. FIshing was slow Saturday and Sunday.

Moneyback2,

We were out to 16 mile on sat and then on sun, When we were leaving on sun around 4:30 pm we got the sub. stuck about 100 yrds. from the road. Were u guys the ones with the black lodge sleeper, and the white p/u that was stuck? Thank god for the driver from arenson's to give a hand. We only got 6 walleye,s & 6 sauger, the walleye were good size, 2-18, 2-17, 2-16, some 14" sauger, a lot of small (8")sauger. When we left the main road back was 3/4 drifted shut.

No, we were in 2 blue Fords with Crew cabs. Tough going out there. We were just glad to get off the lake on Monday morning.

      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.

      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!

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