      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 .

Does anyone/has anyone ever fished the Cannon River near Cannon Falls before? I was fishing there this spring and was wondering what species of fish are present there? Any help would be appreciated.

Mr Special

The Cannon has some great fishing in it. I've caught walleye's, northerns, LM,Smallmouth and white Bass crappies, sunnies, catfish, bullheads, suckers, carp, buffalo, sheepheads, dogfish and Trout. There's many shore spots right near town at Cannon Falls. Below the Dam is a popular spot, "but I don't recommend it if you have small children with". Above the dam would be better. In town there's a few park areas that has tons of shore fishing available.

Good luck

Cake, funny you should ask. My son and 3 buddies just floated the Cannon this past weekend. Every time they came to a deep hole they would toss in their slip sink rigs with a crawler and pick up some nice 15 - 18 inch walleye. With 3 over 23 inches, these went back the rest went in the pan.

Otherwise he was using a white and black spotted "shister" spinner and caught pretty much what Mr. Special caught except for trout. Northern, smallmouth, largemouth, white bass, crappie, sucker, catfish, a creek chub that was 13" long (probably a world record), sheephead and carp.

When I talked to him last night he was still pretty excited about the trip. The crappie were small and the LM/SM were 2 lbs and under but the SM were very acrobatic. Catfish were a couple of pounds along with the sheephead. The northern were up to 5 lbs. The biggest was a 20 lb carp that pulled the other canoe down stream.

They kept only the eyes and they got together with their wives/girlfriends that evening for a cook out. I can only imagine how fresh caught grilled walleye tasted with corn on the cob and washed down with a barley pop or 2.

So, it's definately worth a trip. Good luck.

      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.
