      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 .

With this cold weather snap, I'm wondering if area lakes are still open or if they've closed back up?

I need to get the boat out next week to test everything out.

Any info would be appreciated!

Everythings still wide open round here. The wind has kept them from refreezing.

Thanks bunt2k! Just got the boat back from storage today and need to run it before the Sturgeon Excursion in 2 weeks. Want to take it out either Mon, Tues or Weds, and just as well fish while I'm at it too. wink.gif

Thanks for the info.

The North end of ML is accessible but I am sticking with some of the smaller lakes closer to "home".

Sorry to hear that. I've gotten a limit of crappies and sunnies from softwater already. It's been to cold for the boat, however.

Water is still open on Washington, although darn cold! 37 - 40 degrees is all. Tested out the boat to make sure things ran and spent about 1hr fishing. Marked a few suspended schools at 12' and 20' in 30 - 35fow. Missed one fish. 1/2hr later when the sun was about to hit the trees I tried from 3' - 11' and nada. Not much for a report, but I really wasn't out to hardcore fish this time. smirk.gif

Its nice to hear you got out and tried the boat out, how was it? I have gone fishing a few times this year, but only from shore, and river fished. Im still waiting for the weather to warm a bit, or the fish to start biting!

Everything works good except the bilge pump. Fried 2 fuses so far. I'm going to try and take a look at it today to see if it's something I can get to work. If not, I'm off to a dealer.

Another bump in the weather today, but starting this weekend it should improve. *knock on wood* smirk.gif

Good to hear everything is in order, other than the bilge pump. You better get that fixed right away, especially riding around in that Alumacraft. grin.gif

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

I'd be more concerned about my wake splashing over the sides of your boat! shocked.gifgrin.gif You better install a second pump just in case. tongue.gif These dual console boats are heavy and create quite a wake when they go by. tongue.gifgrin.gif

      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.

      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.
