      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'll be out on the river Satrday but I'm planning on fishing mid afternoon till the P.M.. Gotta prefish a bit and see whats out there for structure before the Riverrat tourney. I'm planning on trolling some cranks and might even twist a few live bait rigs but primarily I'm looking for the active fish on cranks this weekend. If you see a crestliner with tan and brown graphics & 90 yammie, motor up and say hello. I know you"ll be off the river by then but if you are out, stop and say hello.

Yep, coldfront conditions will make it a tough bite. Does this seem to affect the eyes down there like it does in lakes? I have found that in the upper Croix they continue to bite but with a bit less intensity. I'll keep an eye out for you Croixeyes. I am taking my dad out with me to see what we can dredge up out there. I'm sure the sheepshead will be willing to bite they seem to like my presentations grin.gif.

Tunrevir..I havent seen a presentation a sheepshead dosent like.As far as cold fronts on the river,down here is much like up river.Unless its an extreme front the fish do bite,maybe just a little slower.Our problem down here is the amount of forage in the water now,they say match the hatch but I think you have to make it look a little different from everything else....Good luck tomorrow...

I'm all set 3 dozen redtails in the bait well, 8 dozen crawlers in the cooler, coffee pot set for 3:00, alarm set for 3:15, warm gear in boat, reels oiled, new line spooled, new batteries in GPS, full of fuel, can you feel the blood pumping?? Going to hit the river early grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Thanks Croixeyes,

Good luck to you and to Walli. Sounds like he is bringing in the red tailed army tomorrow. Walli, post how you did when you get back. I might have to make a quick bait shop run and shift my gears a bit. I was planning on bringing down a few small suckers and some crawlers just in case the crank bite is off. I thought that I'd try a few different depths, crankin combos and speeds to see if I can turn a fish or two. I might even have to take out the heavy lead and just bang them on the head a bit. Redtails in the metro? Any hints to where a fella might pick one or two up? I'm thinking about putting in at Beanies or up at Bayport. One good thing is that witht the cool weather the "boat" people will not be giving us to many wakes to deal with. grin.gif Good luck to all, I'll be in a tan crestliner with brown and tan graphics and a 90 yahmaha, frs radio tuned to 3 sub channel 7 shooting to get on the water by 3:30 p.m..

      I seen in the  paper it will be at Leech lake again this year.

      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.
