      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 have personally fished with two of the charters out of Duluth. If you are looking for a good time, and gain excellent knowledge of the lake, Skippers Kid (Tom) is definately your guy. His knowledge of the lake, and effort to put you on the fish is top notch. Also with Skippers Kid, you always get 100 percent effort on catching your own fish. With him, when you have a "hook set", you grab to pole from the holder, and work it.... you don't get what some of the captains will do and set the hook, reel it half way in for you, then hand over the pole. Definately do your homework! Give him a call and see what he can offer you. From a fellow FM'er....his servies can't be beat.

Good luck on whomever you give a try...It is definately a blast.

Theres a lot of good charters in the Duluth area. Some of those captains stop by the forum from time to time like, Skipper's Kid, End of the Line and Hard Times, they'll all get you on fish and show you a good time. I have to add that SK is a guy that volunteers his time in community involvement and I admire that in a person.

chaser, kids love it. Sit them on your lap and you can lend an arm when they tire.

End of the Line

There used to be a website with alot of the captians on it. For different reasons we dont have it anymore. If you want the Coho this time of year you may try a charter alittle farther up the shore. Otherwise we have the big lake trout down here right now with maybe an odd walleye or King salmon. If you do a search for End of the Line Charters in Duluth you'll find my info. Check it out, then if you decide, please give me a call anytime even if its just some questions. Good luck!

Chaser, I'll also suggest Skipper's Kid or Hard Times. Another great charter is Bill's Great Lakes Charters. These three services are top notch all the way! Bill's Great Lakes Charters and Hard times have been captains on the big lake for over a combined 40 years and are probably most consistently on the fish. Skipper's Kid is also a great guy and knows how to fish. Any of these guys will take care of the kids to ensure they have a great time on the water. ...And with these guys YOU GRAB THE ROD!!! Good luck with whoever you hook up with and have fun!

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!

      There's preliminary testing then if flagged it gets shipped to a lab I believe in CO to verify the results.

      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and sleds...no side by sides yet.

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
