      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 heard that there's a fire in the Ham Lake area of the Gunflint. (By round Lake) I don't know any specifics but with this wind I would think that it should be blowing the fire into the wilderness instead of the trail. I'll post when I hear more.

Please do, my father-in-law is heading in that way in 10 days. It would be a bummer for his annual trip for sure.

Be safe Mark.

We're fine mid-trail. I heard that Tuscarora may have lost a building and were evacuated but are back now. The last I heard it was heading toward Seagull and the prescribed burn areas and the cavity lake fire area from last year.

Had a big fire out in the township just outside of Superior the other day. Train started this one. We sure need the rain we are getting. Could use a bunch more. Just so it stops Friday the 11th at about 11 pm. wink.gif

Cool site, my dad is actually fighting the Georgia fire. It will be nice to keep track of the containment. Thanks.

Update:

The Gunflint Trail from Cross River on up has been evacuated. The fire has grown from 1000 acres this morning to 6000 to 8000 acres at 11:00am. Last report is that the fire is heading towards the south shore of seagull Lake.

Is there a remote chance they will lift the fire ban by this weekend if we get some rain?

Gunflint,

Hope all goes well for everyone on the trail. Thanks for the post. Keep us posted but most of all be safe.

There's no chance of lifting that fire ban IMO. There would need to be a lot of rain...and we've been singing that same old song for a long time now.

If you're planning any kind of trip up north for the foreseeable future, don't plan on burning anything except a gas stove. Even then, be careful.

Thanks for the heads up. We will leave the wood at home and bring more propane. Good luck.

30 structures are gone. The authorities are keeping a tight reign on info but my guess is that most are from the Seagull lake area.

The fire is 25 miles up the trail from us and about 4 or 5 miles up the trail from Gunflint Lodge. I'm hearing reports of some of the fire damage but nothing I can confirm. Opener isn't traditionally a big weekend up the trail. Things don't usually get really hopping until the second week of June. Tomorrow sounds like the make it or break it day. Wind and sun. The end of the trail will survive but is already changed for ever.

Thanks Gunflint for the imfo on the fire up there, just can't get anything for imfo anywhere about specific damage up there. I sure hope they can protect that seagull river corridor, and I feel for the people that have already lost their property. I'm worried about those people and what they do for their livelyhoods.

THANKS AGAIN JW.

My brother has a place on Seagull.Several years ago,I helped him install a sprinkler system around the perimeter.One of his neighbors on the lake is a year round resident and refused to leave his property when the evacuation order was given.This fellow was able to start my brothers sprinklers as well as his own and a few other neighbors.Without question,all of these structures would have burned to the ground without sprinklers...and a brave man to stay and do whatever it takes to try and save other peoples property

I wasn't going to say anything but when people start agreeing with suicidal behavior I draw the line. If he would have been killed trying to save a cabin, he would have been an (Contact Us Please). If his actions would have caused a rescuer to get killed trying to save him, it would have been a tragedy. No structure on Seagull is worth dying for. Worse yet, causing someone else to get killed. Lets keep our eye on the ball here.

I have been reading this since it first started. I hope everyone involved Gods-speed in stopping this fire storm up there in Northeast Minnesota.

I don't want to disagree, but when faced with losing your home or property that you have more than likely spent your entire life to save for and for some raised their families there and enjoy for the retirement years ahead. I would find it hard to just walk away from without giving it one He$$ of a fight to save it.

No, I can't say being in a forest surrounded by a raging fire is the wisest choice, but each individual has a certain right to protect his or her property.

My wife's grandparents have a place on SeaGull. I guess those sprinklers were a good investment afterall. We'll see how things develop. God bless those that have lost homes, what a tragedy

      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action. 
    • monstermoose78
      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping
    • IceHawk
      Good fish Rick way to find some quality fish in a highly pressured area. Takes skill to be able to accomplish that. Maybe run into you one of these days out there
    • IceHawk
      Nice fish guys looked like a good time was had . That lake has some quality for sure. Figured you guys would dial them in.
    • Jory
      Not new to ice fishing but I can't seem to find the fish anymore around my neck of the woods in foley mn. so if anyone could give great insight of lakes times and maybe hints of baits and area of the lake would be awesome.
