      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 .

10 hours until N. Dakota trip

Recommended Posts

I am counting down the minutes until I leave for Kensal tomorrow morning at 5:30 am. The truck is packed and has been repacked because I am really excited to get my dog back from the trainer and do some hunting this weekend. I dont know how I am going to handle the count down to pheasant opener.

I will be after sharptails Saturday morning with the new setter and new gun, so I hope everything goes well. I would love to hit the bird if the dog does point one. I am hunting alone Saturday and with the dogs handler on Sunday. Should be a great time.

I will post pictures when I get back.

I bought a setter from a friends dad that trains dogs in Kensal around last Christmas. We did some sharptail hunting there late last fall and they were everywhere. Good luck it should be a great time.

The hunt went great. My girlfriend and I had a fun weekend with lots of birds. Sharptail numbers are great and the dog had a lot of nice points. It missed the first few birds before getting my 3 on Saturday, but my girlfriend shot 3 for 3 on Saturday (The guys I know in North Dakota are never going to let me hear the end of that)

I have some nice pictures but I am having trouble getting them on the computer.

I also went went dove hunting twice and that is a great time. I had a hard time learning how to lead them because they fly so fast. After I got my first one it became a little easier, I had to lead them by 3 or 4 feet it seemed.

2thepointsetters, sounds like you had a great time. I'll be making a trip to ND over MEA this year. Went out last year for a few days and this year we'll be out there for 5 days- pretty pumped!

Maybe you don't want to tell your buddies she went 3 for 3. Maybe you want to turn the story around, but just don't mention anthing when she is around wink.gif

I wouldn't be complaining bout her liking to the BPS. I think you would be getting a better deal!

      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.
