      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 .

Most can't predict what tomorrows weather will bring. I'll say that forecast changes numerous times by opening day. I think those long term forecasts area joke. Two days ago it had clouds, rain and wind. I'll bet money its cold, cloudy and rainy. Seems like that is the norm the last few years! Oh well, we are still fishing and it might keep a few folks at home. Can't wait for next Friday. Let the games begin!

My guess for the weather is that it's going to be like last weekend and this upcoming weekend. Starts out really nice on saturday and on sunday we'll have a chance at a shower or storm. Something in my gut tells me it gonna be a great opener weather wise. (Isn't it always?) grin.gif

I predict temps in the 50's with a 15-20 mph NW wind... all combined with a constant sprinkle of rain. This will be punctuated with a few heavier showers.

When I think of opener, this seems to sum it up every year. We've had a nice run of good weather. It projects right up to this coming weekend. That should set the state for a run of bad weather through opener weekend. My glass is half empty. But, this way I can only be happily surprised if it turns out otherwise.

I think you may have to drastically change it, just so we can jinx it back to where we want it. Now I think we are asking for hard cold rain all night w/ 7' rollers from the south. May have to grab a launch spot and try it on the big boat! j/k See ya out there tongue.gif

On weather.com, for the 10-day forcast they now have rain Friday through Sunday with the wind out of the East around 7-10 mph. Shouldn't be too bad.

Well it is looking like another wet opener. The good news is that the lakes need it desperately.

All you need to say is Opener Weather. That is explination enough. It will be cold, windy, cloudy, with a "chance" of rain. I say "chance" because even if it was sunny, it would rain at some point during the weekend because mother nature has a sick sense of humor.

Wind predictions @ accuweather for Isle...

Saturday - East winds 7MPH - Gusting to 12...

Sunday - Southeast winds 17MPH - Gusting to 28...

It's obvious a cold front is going to start coming through late Friday and run the full weekend (what's new?)...

I checked 8 towns spread around the State. They all call for strong winds and gusts NE to SE through the weekend.

Another typical Minnesota fishing opener...

I don't trust or like accuweather. Last sunday, they said it was supposed to be sunny and warm for my town. It was cloudy the whole day and it rained in the morning.

I always use weather.com You just key in a city. Malmo for example. It lists a detailed forecast usually a few days out, including wind. Hope this helps . It even shows hour by hour a day or two out. cool.gif

      Per the DNR news release dated November 20th:  “Wheeled fish houses, which formerly were considered portable – and thus excluded from licensing requirements for shelters – will now need to be licensed,” said Al Stevens, fisheries survey and systems consultant with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “In the past, anglers using wheelhouses could use them without shelter licenses as long as they were occupied, including overnight.” The change pursued by the DNR and enabled by 2017 legislation accompanied hunting and angling fee increases. An annual resident shelter license is $16. A three-year license is $43. Owners of houses to be rented pay $31 annually or $88 for a three-year license. A valid license tag must be attached to the outside of the fish house in a readily visible location. ~~~~~ Any ideas on how to go about attaching them since they're no longer stickers like they used to be? Apparently you can't put them inside in a window facing out per the 'outside' requirement of the law.

      so here’s the scoop , as most fishermen know most of the resorts up here started letting wheeler and sleds out on the lake last weekend. That does not mean you can go any where you want as the winds have shifted the ice a couple times and opened up a few cracks . Check with the resort you access and stay in the areas that have been checked out.
      The fishing has been pretty good.
      I have had a few projects that were put off untell I got laid off from the golf course and mother nature again made my projects more challenging. I’m making progress slow and steady and maybe this time I have learned my lesson not to put these off when its 70 and sunny. Chasing breaking 80 at the golf course has got me processed.
      From the looks of it there a good chance we will have all our sleepers on the lake by the 7th of dec.
      My plans are again to go out of Hillmens resort and help Buddy hillmen with his road. He has built a 2 story house that may or may not be on the lake as its huge, I think it can sleep 8 to 10. Its crazy big 14 by 28.

      I appreciate the feedback. We love being out on the ice, so we'll keep plugging away.  Good luck to all this winter and be safe out there!
    • workin4bait
      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
