      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 .

Rick,
My fishhouse is a 7X12 and the wheels are on the back of the house. This makes the tongue weight terrible. I cannot pull my house with a 4-wheeler at all. It bottoms out the wheeler. Could a guy slip one of these trailers under my home and remove the wheels from the back to balance out the weight some? What do you think?
Thanks,
Flash

Hi Flash,
you would need to have us build a custom trailer for you. You would also need to take out six inches on the side of your house for the wheels to fit in because they are retractable. Otherwise it wouldn't be road legal.

Anything beyond 6'6" in house size width will require a recess for the wheels in the house. Unless you don't need it to be road legal of course for those who store their fish house.

So, in other words, it would be possible to do? Maybe you could e-mail me at Flicekin@Frontiernet.net I was wondering if you could tell me a price range. Of course it would not be binding. Just a rough guess.

We are now in the process of getting the 1st Road King Fish House planned and built.

Should be ready in July.

If you were going to build your own, what would you put in it?

Loaded question Rick!...Would definately include some cabinet storage...maybe a wall mount for handheld gps (NOT over the hole of course!)...Still looking for ideas to put on the frame here. One thought Kent had that I thought was cool, would be to put the bunks up and forward toward the tongue, like a fifth wheel mobile home...that way the bunk area doesn't interfere with the fishing space...
just a few thoughts...

lets hear some more!

An insulated bait box that also can be a seat, or used to store things instead of letting them lie around waiting to be kicked into a hole. With a removeable plastic liner to be able to dump out the water. Plastic so more durable than the normal foam.

The fish house is being built now. It's going to be a dandy.

6' 6" x 14' in diameter.
Extra windows (5 of them)
8 Holes with catch covers.

The interior will be finished with a heater installed. The rest will be left to custom build. You can either do it yourself or have us do it for you.

For those of you that want to build your own we have trailers available. Just give us a call. There is a 2 week lead time.

Fish- N- Hunt

Rick,
I am very interested in purchasing one of your fishhouse trailer frames. I am interested in the 16'frame. I was wondering how I could get a hold of you to ask a few questions and to see if that would be at all possible. I am ready to buy a frame, and have looked at a few of them. I hope to have a frame within a month.

please let me know
Thanks

I have a house on wheels I bought as a shell and I am in the process of "outfitting" her. One thing that is a must is storage, overhead or bench. Ever pull a house across a lake with some loose pails full of jiggle sticks? What a mess. Locking type rod holders on the wall worked great for that problem.
Looking for ideas to secure the auger though.
Not really a fan of bunks- take up too much room, but some sort of retractable system may get me to try it.
Cabinet with radio and speakers works great too, make a handy overhead storage space with tunes(classic country) to boot.
Make sure the back has a set of double doors to drive the wheeler into for hauling.
Just a few Ideas for ya, if you have any, let me know. thanks

Thanks for contacting me Fish-n-Hunt. When your ready to go, it will only take a couple of weeks to get it to you after you order. Just a reminder, you can use your house for hunting as well.

Thanks for the ideas Poppfish. The 1st Road King fish house is almost off the assembly line. This baby is well built by a very meticulous builder. Insulation, siding, details, and roof are all that needs to be completed.

It will be available in Medford (3 miles north of Owatonna Cabelas) to see as soon as it's done.

We sold a 6' 6" x 14' today to a gentleman who has built 10 houses over the years. He told me he checked out all the frames he could find. To get one like the Road King elsewhere would have cost him over $1500.00

Now is the time to start thinking about getting your drop down trailer. You can e-mail me using the Contact us link below or call Jay at Northeast Outfitters in Alex (his number is in the post above).

Jay also has a Road King Outdoors trailer on display for you to look at. Give him a call. He will also take your order if you'd like.

Don't wait too long to get your order in.

      Applications due by Saturday, Dec. 16  The Department of Natural Resources, the Metropolitan Council and the Greater Minnesota Regional Parks and Trails Commission are seeking qualified applicants to serve on the Parks and Trails Legacy Advisory Committee.  “The Parks and Trails Legacy Advisory Committee plays a critical role in helping us achieve the vision Minnesotans have for use of the Parks and Trails Legacy Funds and creates an accessible and equitable, integrated system of state and regional parks and trails in Minnesota,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. The purpose of the committee is to promote and coordinate implementation of the 25-Year Parks and Trails Legacy Plan. Funding recommendations for individual projects is not a part of this committee’s work. The plan can be found at on the parks and trails legacy plan page. 2018 will mark the 10th anniversary of the passage of the Legacy Amendment by Minnesota voters. The committee is planning a series of regional events during the year to celebrate Legacy accomplishments and engage Minnesotans on the question, “Why Parks and Trails Legacy Matters.”  Information about the events will be available in January on Facebook (/PTLegacyMN) and on the committee website (www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac). The deadline for applications is Saturday, Dec. 16. The committee is made up of 17 members, including, to the practical extent possible, diverse geographical and demographic representation. The committee has a mixture of park and trail professionals and Minnesota residents. Committee members should have expertise in two or more of the four strategic pillars of the plan: Connect people and the outdoors. Acquire land and create opportunities. Take care of what we have. Coordinate among partners. Terms are two years with the option of being reappointed for a maximum of three terms. Meetings are scheduled every two months around the state, with an option to attend remotely. Interested individuals may complete the application form online at www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac/member-application or print it out and return it to Paul Purman, Department of Natural Resources, Box 39, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN 55155. Anyone with questions can contact Paul via phone at 651-259-5643 or email at paul.purman@state.mn.us. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Thanks much Huntnfish and ZachD!!!  Had the wife pick me up some CCI 209 Magnum primers and seems to have fixed the issue.  Went out the other night and put 7 rounds through the ole CVA and didn't have a single hangfire.  I'm ready for the weekend.

      Anglers and others interested in Department of Natural Resources strategies for managing Grand Marias area lakes and streams are invited to review and comment on management plans scheduled for review this fall. This annual process includes several waters located within the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW). Comments on lakes within the BWCAW will be accepted until Dec. 20. The comment period for lakes and streams outside the BWCAW, will extend through Feb. 15. A management plan identifies specific management activities planned for a lake or stream over the next five to 20 years, including any proposed stocking or special regulations. “Management plans are our best single sources of information on past, present and desired future conditions in our lakes and streams,” said Steve Persons, Grand Marais area fisheries supervisor. “Comments and suggestions from those most interested in these waters are crucial when it comes to making plans and determining management success. For anglers this is the best opportunity to influence how these lakes and streams are managed.” In the Grand Marais area, plans for the following lakes and streams will reviewed this winter. Lake plans under review: The status and preservation of native lake trout populations will be the primary concern in plans being revised for Blue Snow and Gabimichigami Lakes. Both are located inside the BWCAW. Stream trout stocking and management strategies will be reviewed in Thompson, Thrush, Turnip, Olson, Kraut, Little Portage, Olga, Mavis (BWCAW), Missing Link (BWCAW), Meditation (BWCAW), Talus, Trout, Pine (near Two Island Lake), Unnamed (near Tom Lake), Chester, Extortion, and North Shady Lakes. Options to consider include changes in species, reductions in stocking frequency, and changes in the number or size of fish stocked. In Mine, Peanut, Weasel (Sled), Tomato, Trip, and Rog (BWCAW) Lakes, fisheries managers are considering eliminating trout stocking, due to the high cost of stocking remote lakes by air, poor survival of stocked fish, or use that appears to have been too low to justify the cost of continued stocking.  Angler feedback on fisheries in these lakes is critically needed for these important decisions. Plans for Devilfish, Gust, Hand, and Tom Lakes will be reviewed with attention to the status and needs of walleye fisheries in those lakes. Moore Lake will be reviewed to determine whether it offers any potential for panfish management. Plans for several lightly-used BWCAW lakes in the area, including Caribou (by Clearwater), Clove, Kiskadinna, Long, Mora, Morgan, Skipper, and Tepee Lakes will be reviewed. Those plans will be revised primarily to incorporate any new survey data that may have been obtained, and to establish survey schedules for the next few years. Streams plans under review: Plans for Beaverdam Creek and the Swamp River will be reviewed.  Both are marginal trout streams, and may be considered for removal from the State’s list of designated trout streams. Plans for the Cascade River, Elbow Creek, and the Onion River will also be reviewed. All three support thriving brook trout populations, with the Cascade and Onion Rivers also supporting steelhead and salmon in their lower reaches. Plans will focus on habitat and water quality, hydrology and watershed issues. The DNR is considering removing the portion of Elbow Creek above Elbow Lake from the State’s list of designated trout streams, since no trout have been found in that part of the stream in recent surveys. Current plans for lakes and streams in the area as well as recent fish population assessment information are available for review at the DNR’s Grand Marais area fisheries office, at 1356 E. Highway 61, Grand Marais, Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. For more information, call or email Steve Persons at 218-387-6022 or steve.persons@state.mn.us. Public comments on management of BWCAW waters are due by Dec. 20. The comment period for lakes and streams outside the BWCAW will extend through Feb. 15. Comments, suggestions and other feedback on the management of these, and all other streams and lakes in the area are welcomed at any time and will be considered when those plans are next due for review. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      The first set of replacements I bought from a dealership but they are spendy. I bought some Ancos at Fleet Farm like I have in the past for all my vehicles, but there is no adapter that fits the end of the  blade arm. What are others using?

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and the city of Willow River will host a public open house on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 to discuss options for the Willow River dam which was severely damaged during a July 2016 rain storm. The open house will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Willow River School located at 8142 Pine Street, Willow River, Minn. Participants can visit displays during the first hour of the open house to learn more about three options currently being considered.  At 7:30 p.m. DNR staff will make a presentation about the features, benefits and cost of each option and answer questions about next steps. The meeting purpose is to receive public input about the options and to answer questions about the state’s process. The dam was built in 1940 as a cooperative venture between the Works Progress Administration and the then Department of Conservation. Heavy rains from a July 2016 thunderstorm overwhelmed the capacity of the dam and caused a significant breach of the north embankment. Options include replacement of the dam to meet current safety standards, removal of the dam, or restoration of the river channel with a series of rock weirs, or rock rapids, to retain water levels but to allow passage of small craft as well as the movement of fish. “We have a rare opportunity to reimagine how this stretch of river might function and look like in the future,” said project manager Jason Boyle. “We look forward to hearing from area residents and moving the project forward.” Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
