      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 .

beware the dreaded triangle!!!!!

well it was bound to happen. the triangle tried to eat one of our very own, bryce!!i'not sure exactly of the details, i'm sure he'll make up some kind of story for damage control. i knew the power was going to be stronger this season, and here's the proof. friday night after we got set up on the lake, kelly came by and said that fellow over there is bryce, can he set up by you guys? sure have at it. i didn't see hide nor hair of him til saturday morning during breakfast, when he knocked at our door. he came in introduced himself as bryce. my first thought was he was at the bar the night before, some body told him shut up, and he thought they said stand up shocked.gif this guy was a wreck! half his face was missing!i asked what happened? he told me he was in his fish house the night before,minding his own buisiness, when all of a sudden there was this rumble, the ice started to shake, and as fast as you could imagine a water spout came up out of the ice hole. as he described it it was sort of like an upside down tornado! it grabbed him by the head and sucked him down into the hole. it couldn't get him through the hole. thank god he didn't have a 10 inch auger! it slammed him into the hole again and again, until for some unknown reason it stopped! i couldn't help but feel for the guy, so putting all thought of profit aside i did as any humane fisher person would do. i went to the truck, and got him a lead body suit. i gave it to him at cost! how's that! that's right. jigglestick knows where it's at! it was the least i could do. that is the kind of hospitality you will find on red lake. i also administered pain killers, and i believe by saturday night at bar close he was feeling none. let this be a lesson to all who dare to fish the red unprepared.
now you might hear a different version, but be warned. we have given bryce a new knic name now. in fact there are several to choose from maybe we will vote on it? so far we have scar face,digger,chipper,bob(hehehe)or aqua veiw. i like the last one. if you see him don't say any thing, be polite, as he is very sensitive.
BODY SUITS! GET YOUR TRIED AND TESTED BODY SUITS HERE!good fishing all.

It went a lot better for Bryce last night. Now that he knows to use a fishing rod rather then bobbing for crappies he caught some. Whoever told him that you got crappies just like bobbing for apples should be more careful. smile.gif

Wow! What a weekend. It is going to take a while to recover from that one. Kelly and Scabs4me went home early and missed out on the Johnny Cash tribute we had at ninetoes house on Sunday morning. I was unable to make it to church but this was kind of a religous experience in it self. Did Ninetoe make it back out on Monday at 5:30 A.M. like he said he would? I had a blast! Now I am going to go to Mexico for a week and relax and try to get ready for my next adventure up there on presidents day. Jigglestick, Kelly-p, Ninetoe, Labs4me, Paul, Little Italy, Donna gal, Bryce.......Thanks for everything.

Scott, it's a good thing your house was 100 yrds away from ours...the Johnny Cash tribute spilled over from Ninetoes cabin to the Lab shack, (too cold to walk over and get you). Ninetoes should've just brought his rods out with him as I think he was just leaving at 5:30! grin.gif we'll see you and I hope Bryce too on Pres. day weekend...Recover,recover,recover....

Hey thanks for everything Kelly. We had an absolute blast this weekend! However,I doubt we'll ever be up during a full moon again. The forces on the triangle were way to strong! A couple of our guys are still trying to account for 4 missing hours after W.W. on Sun night. They're claiming a classic case of alien abduction. If it is true,at least they were nice enough to put em back out on the lake within a couple miles of the fishhouse when they were finished with em.
Bryce, It was great to meet you. Just wanted to thank you for the lesson in "Face Fishing" .I think I'm going to stick with the old hook and line for now, but you keep practicing!

      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.
