      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 .

Best Over All Jig????

Recommended Posts

Guest

I have found that on Upper Red Lake as in most crappie lakes i fish that the green Demon jigs work the best.I know on the days when the bite is so intense that you could probably throw a hotdog down the hole and land a ton of silverbacks it doesn't really matter but when those slow days come around the glow in the dark white and green Demon seem to work the best.This is a tip for any new comers to the URL fishing mecca.Any other jig favorites please reply.

RED or Green [ Frostee ] works great for me.

Orange or pink glow perch hoggers I've always liked. Maynards has some nice simple red glow teardrops that work well too. Extra wt. to get down in a hurry isn't a big deal at URL because of shallow depth.
Most important is keep your lines in order so if the bite gets hot you're not untangling tackle instead of fishing. I need to reread that last sentence myself!

I have been trying some new things up there and have found that the best jig for me has been a genz worm. I have repainted them with orange neon glow paint that glows red.

It's hard to beat a green/glow demon! When I am fishing deep water fast moving schools of crappies a demon just will not cut it. In this situation a heavy jig is a must so you can get it to the fish as fast as possible, if you don't have a heavy jig you can always use a demon with a split shot, but the problem here is tangling your line and missing an opportunity.

Kelly Lake Crappie Killer....Now that Pete C. has come back to AK, those crappies in Kelly Lake can finally breath a breath of relief. Did you hear about his fishing violation???

one thing you might add to your arsenal, is removing the barbs on your jigs. no big secrets here, but i'll bet not to many do it. it has advantages besides the peta related arguments. it allows you to get your jig out of the roof of the fishes mouth faster, and down the hole much faster.how much time have you wasted trying to get a hook lodged in the roof of a crapies mouth out, baited up and back down the hole? i tried it tonight and it worked great, in fact alot of the fish got off by themselves on the ice. only lost two during the battle. not a bad average. just a thought---jigglestick----

A Tube Jig works great as does the infamous Gem n Eye.

When a bare hook without bait isn't working I just stick my head down the hole and grab em with my teeth. hee hee

Good luck

      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

      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.
