      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 .

Ten Mile Crappies

Recommended Posts

koWALLEYEski

Just wondering how many people have been out to Ten Mile catching crappies. I have fished it in the past and if I remember right this is about the time everyone starts going down there. I caught a couple down there the other night. One was around 13 so there are some decent fish moving shallow.

Haven't been there in a long long time. To fish anyway. My wifes sister lives on the lake, and I used to go fishing with my brother in law, but he's out of town alot on business now a days. Might have to check it out, its been awhile, cant even remember where everyone fishes at, if your talking about from shore, heck I cant even remember where my in laws place is. nice guy aren't I, heh, heh, think its time I give them a friendly call.

Ten Mile is quite the sight in the spring. It is cool to see all the light up bobbers go flying through the air. smile.gif Dano --- you fish right off the road by the ten mile steak house. Really, you are fishing in N. Ten Mile Lake. Some nights it is tough to find a spot down there. I have fished all along that shore and seemed to catch a few fish. I love spring crappie fishing and its hard to beat when you can do it from shore. I am wondering why ppl like to hug that culvert so much?

ok, steak house, thanks, I couldn't quite remember, I was thinking a cafe or convenient store or something, but its been awhile since I've been there. Ever since my wife and sister where on the outs, I guess I haven't been interested in being around that area. But that was quite awhile ago.

theres a couple other small lakes I want to try too, around the paelican rapids area, that are supposed to be decent for shore fishing. Shore fishing is all I'll be able to get in on this year(no boat anymore) so I better take full advantage this spring. Maybe we'll se you out sometime. I drive a green ford supercrew.

My wife's Aunt's husband said he drove by there last Friday and they were catching the crap out of the crappies there. He said it looked like everybody had one on at once they were coming in so fast.

koWALLEYEski - we should probably go give it a try on N. Ten Mile this weekend. Last year it was pretty fun going there. Looks like I'll have to go buy another $5 light up bobber though.

Has anyone checked the water temp there yet? I would think that they will be in there very soon if not already. Must have been about this time last year that they were in there.

In the crappie forum, crappie tom - who knows A LOT about crappies, said you cana get a thermometer that you submerse in the water to get a good reading.

I wonder if the temp gauge on the aqua view would work instead of buying a thermometer

Yeah thatd work good. Maybe we should bring a boat out there one day so we can just vertically jig over the top of them. I think we'd hook up a lot more, but it would be a lot more work that just going from shore.

The water temp has gone up in the last few days with all this nice sunshine. The fish should be moving soon.

There had to be at least 75 people fishing from shore, not sure if anyone was catching anything, just out for dinner.

Quite a lighted bobber show at night!

Hey kowalleyski.. I was down there last night and caught 7 all small ones, lost one that was pretty nice by shore. A lot of people were catching them but there isn't much for size.. I talked to a guy down there who fished the day before (saturday) and said they didn't really start up till later about 9-9:30pm, the decent ones that is... I stayed for about an hour and a half.. and then left.. I got out there at around 9 and they were still catching them when I left at 10:30pm ..I also talked to a friend I knew down the shoreline near the black weeds, they caught quite a few decent eaters but had to weed through the bullheads.. I think this weekend might be a little better...but its hard to say with the 60 degree weather. who knows...

I would assume that with this warm weather, more and more would start moving in to there.

Its good to hear you were catching fish. Its fun just being out there even if they arent monsters. tacklebox have you talked to wheeler at all about his " secret crappie spot" he claims he caught 170 fish already but I never know when to believe that character.

yes i know he is full of hot air sometimes, but he does have some very good spots for fishing and hunting. I just think he exagerates a lot. I believe that he gets fish but just not the exact number. We all do that sometimes. Well not me, but haha!

Drove by tonight, and saw the "light show" at dark: Seemed there were only about 25 people out there: Don't know how they were doing: I don't like fishing in the crowds but drove by after hitting the south side of S.ten mile: and their were some fish, but they were small: As soon as the sun set, it was nothing but bullheads: This is Alaska style "combat fishing" it appeared! This year is going to be a little different, the water is warm, and the fish are up very early: The bass are up, the pike are about done....kinda odd: The crappies should start VERY soon, if it isn't too late already!

      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.

      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.
