      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 .

It will be nice to have someone different running it. Chris is a nice guy but sometimes it was not very organized. smile.gif

Any ideas to make things go smoother at the lake would be helpful.

Since you are asking, here are my two cents! smile.gif

I don't know if you are going to have a co-director, but help doing livewell checks before you get on the water would make things smoother, as well as check in on the water at check-in time.

We had a few instances where folks come blasting in at least five minutes late, and get to weigh fish. That is one thing in the rules that is very clear.

The website also needs to have the ramp posted, so you know where to go, since some of the lakes have multiple launches. These have been issues the last couple of years.

If there is anything I can do to help, let me know. If you need a co-director, I may volunteer, since there are perks. wink.gif

I think we need to take better care of the fish at weigh in. Limit the number of bags available and only allow teams to weigh with the official bags. Too many guys standing in line with fish in bags means dead fish. I would be more than happy to help you enforce this rule. Besides, I think everyone would cooperate as long as they were told at take off and again prior to weigh in.

what my club does is we have a holding tank (old sink) for the person just prior to them weighing in.. its located right by the scale.. Also no more than 2 people in line at once so 1 is always weighing and the others fish are in the tank ready to weigh right after.. Everyone eoses fish stay in their livewell until its their turn smile.gif.. last yr we approximately 350 bass and only 3 died ( all were deep hooked) just my 2 cents worth smile.gif

I agree about the fish care as well. The other issue is releasing fish into a shallow bay in some of these lakes can be fatal.

Ya having some type of holding tank for one or two bags prior to weighing in is a good idea. A rubbermaid tote I have seen used. Problem is the water we be low on oxygen after a few bags. Also having everyone draw for position when we pay instead of right before take off along with livewell inspection. One of these times someones going to run into one another trying to inspect livewells. frown.gif

maybe we need some type of aerated holding tank. aerators are relatively inexpensive.

You will get quite a few teams bringing in the forms on the first tournament. I know that the last two years that was the case. I know we usually bring ours to the first tournament. smile.gif

Havn't sent in forms yet but I plan on fishing again with the same partner(orange boat). I will get the ball rolling early, we paid at the first tournament last year. Do we need to send the forms to a new address. I havn't checked the website recently. Thanks for taking things over!

Hey Superduty,

I thought you would have gotten a camo boat by now. I know how hard it was for you to duck hunt between Rice and Koronis in the cattails with the orange one. grin.gif

LOL, crazy.gif That was my partner you are talking about. I heard all about it, but wasn't fishing with him that year. He cut a big enough channel that day that some guys were fishing it during a later tournament! I made sure that we fished out of my boat on Koronis last year. Just to be safe!

      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

      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.
