      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 .

I received a gift of a bunch of 4" tube jigs from a buddy. For some reason there area about two dozen pink tubes in this bunch. Are these of any value to us Nordern Minneeesota guys or should I just give them to somebody who fishes salt water? I mean guys....pink?

I have had luck with a pink bucktail with a white blade for muskies before. I would give em a try. Might be something the fish havent seen alot of.

I would keep them and give them a try. I have fished the Ely area lakes for about 15 years. The water on many lakes is stained and color of any kind will help. My favorite jig color on these lakes has been pink. A pink jig and a leach on Garden lake, White Iron, Farm were deadly. On Vermillion for walleyes when live bait rigging I have had great success on smaller mepps tube jigs tipped with crawler/leech/minnow. My color choices have been greeen or white. I also like the whistler jig and pink has been a go to color. Trust me if you are cathing fish on something your buddies will gladly go with pink it that is what will put fish in the boat..

Pink tubes are my number one crappie getter. Of course I refer to the color as "bubble gum" wink.gif

Dtro beat me to it however his answer is correct.

We professional anglers call pink "Bubble Gum", it's more manly than "Pink". grin.gifgrin.gif

By the way, it will catch fish on Vermilion. smile.gif

"Ace" cool.gif

Terry,

My deepest thanks for correcting the dip in the testosterone level on this post. We have to help each

other out, when the natural order of things runs amuck.

Oh, my son Skyler absolutely slams the crappie on a white and BUBBLEGUM colored jig in the spring.

Your welcome Doug,

We all have to look out for each other, we can't have people going around telling everyone that my favorite color is "Pink". grin.gifgrin.gif

I also happen to have some "Bubble gum" colored Muskie baits that were custom painted for me, Oh the things we do to catch fish. grin.gif

"Ace" cool.gif

      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.

      I am a lazy angler, so winter fishing suits me fine.  I typically fish with pike suckers or chubs on a plain #6 hook 6" off the bottom, and do just fine on ice.  As they said, the best bite times are sunrise-10:30am and 3:00pm-sunset; although I do occasionally catch some in the middle of the day.  I have caught very few walleyes after dark.
