      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 .

Netting last week on Lower Red Lake

Recommended Posts

woodman

To all who want to read- I am an elementary teacher in Ponemah, MN, which is in between upper and lower Red Lakes. Last week the DNR did a netting on Lower Red Lake to see what the count was. I took my class outside on the bank and watched them lower the nets into the water. It was a teaching moment for me to explain to them what they were doing and why. A lot of my students said that they can not be doing that for another five years. I said, that is right, but that is the DNR and they are the ones who are managing the lakes with the Tribe to regain the Walleye population. This week I talked to a janitor at our school and he said that it was the best netting that they have ever had on Lower Red Lake. He said lots of big walleyes in the 24 inch range and good numbers.

I asked his point of view about the tribe building a resort, and his reply was alot of members do not like the idea. I guess we will see where it leads us in the future.

I just thought some of you might want to hear what I know about the netting on Lower Red Lake.

Last winter we caught lots of walleyes fishing out of West Wind. Most were in the 12-15 inch range. They are coming back, lets hope they stick around this time and not get netted out again.

The crappie boom on URL the last few years was great...where else can you go in the midwest to catch big slabs in big numbers like we have in URL?

I hope the crappies will always re-produce in Red lake. I hope to fish there for many years and hopefully take my son there in the years to come.

We also caught and released several walleye last year on Upper and heard many great reports from others we talked to. Hopefully the population will continue to grow (and the crappies too!) so you can experience some great fishing with your newest fishing buddy!

Congrats again to Woodman & Tiffany on the birth of their newest fishing buddy this week!

Thanks for the info!

Caught a lot of walleyes fishing for pike this year, but the largest ones were about 3- 3 1/2 pounds, maybe 22 inches.

Thanks for the input. I appreciate hearing what going on from the inside.

      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.
