      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'm in for the moment. I will be maken my choice by Tuesday on weather I drop out or fish. River is just getting to shallow for my boat and I can't afford to bust anything when I have a trip booked for next weekend. I would love to fish it but don't have a smaller boat. O'well there is always next year. Good luck to all and be very careful on the river. Maybe see you at the weigh in

I'm in...low water or not! I'm just going to take it VERY easy. I was with a friend on the "north end" this past Sunday and he tore a huge hole in his lower unit. Needless to say, he's gonna have to find a new lower unit and prop before the tournament, but atleast we made it back to the launch. We probably hit bottom 20 times through out the day!

In a few places we actually bottomed out the boat on sand bars...IT'S SHALLOW!

Anyone fishing the north side, USE CAUTION. If your not taking it easy, your gonna have a lot of trouble. I guarantee it. (unless you have a river pro)...Then it would be really fun! grin.gif

As for the fishing, we caught ton's of fish between 19" and 25"'s. Plus one around 15lb's and another close to 10lb's. We didn't really fish for cats though. We were mainly out chasing Gold Eye.

Well I have been out on the Red for the past two days and hitting it hard, the bite is very tough. The North end is very low. I took the Film crew out on the Norht end today with their 22 foot Ranger..... It was put put put.. hit bottom twice.. many places are only two feet deep.

We did not pound the fish to say the least. Many boats we spoke to were having the same luck. It is going to be a Morning fish. that first two hours are going to be critical. We did get some big fish but the weight was way down. One was a 37" cat with huge head.. Weighed only 8#. that is unreal.

Gonna be a challenge.

Your pooped? I finally got home!

Had to stop in Fergus Falls, Alexandria, & St. Cloud to replenish the coffee. blush.gif Waking up at 4:30am back to back days coupled with run & gun fishing really can wear a guy out!

Off to bed. Gonna need a few days off I think!

      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.

      Ice is 4-5" on smaller lakes in DL area...got some nice crappies and one large Gill 10.75" on a quick trip out yesterday morning before the Vikes game...best bite was 7-9am
