      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 .

Well since Steve is always too busy to take chunky fishing grin.gif, I had to pick up another boat. Hopefully I'll have her on Bside by next weekend. 1959 Alumacraft Queen Mary 19 footer. Yamaha 115 on her tail. Believe me, you'll know it's me when you see it. See ya on the water. Hope all is well with all you guys!

Chunky I thought maybe you took up Scuba Diving or something. wink.gif

Glad to hear from ya man. Maybe Ill drive up for a day and we can break that puppy in. Burntside is a beautiful lake and just trolling around for a day would be fun.

Take care man and good luck with the new rig.

No more "The Cisco Kid" confused.gif ?

We will be on Little Long for a couple weeks starting the 21st of the month. Hope to visit with some FMers while in the area.

Cisco Kid II ! I already ordered the graphics grin.gif . The original Cisco Kid is sitting in a haybarn in Embarass. The guys going to gut her and make her a center console. That is after he removes the 1000 lbs of wet floatation foam tongue.gif . I'll post some pictures of her when she's ship shape and ready to troll.

Just spent a week on Burntside, first time ever on the lake. You guys are lucky to have that in your back yard. Hard lake to fish for first timer, seems like the wind had to be blowing pretty hard to get any bites. Didn't get many fish, but all were nice size.

I was out of town all of July 4th week and somehow this post slipped by me. Chunkster, no time to take you fishing also means no time to take MYSELF fishing. mad.gif

Guess I've gotta give chunky his downriggers back now and get a set of my own. Darn.

Not only is it alive, but it's got a REALLY big inland laker boat. And one unique enough so he can't fade into the background. grin.gif

Congrats on the boat Mike!

Is it the big platform boat sitting at Trader Jacks?

You mean Trader Craig's, Frank? On the east edge of town in the same building as Spirit of the Wilderness Outfitters?

If I recall, the boat you're talking about is fiberglass, which wouldn't be Chunkster's aluminum one. Or maybe I'm just assuming that Alumacraft didn't make fiberglass boats, because of the Alumacraft name. But I haven't actually SEEN it yet, because the hermit hasn't come over to SHOW it to me.

I'm not even sure if it's real. I mean, what does a 1959 Alumacraft Dairy Queen 19 footer look like? grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Trader something in Ely. I reread Chunky's post and it isn't the same boat. I know a guy in Ely that knows where Chunky lives and he even has a camera, maybe he'll go take a picture.

Sheesh BooBoo, who's the guy in the trenchcoat in front my house with the camera? The Queen is up at the studio getting some cosmetic work done. You'll see her soon enough.

Not really believing the masses about said boat, I snuck over to chunkytown without my camera to sniff around. So, no camera means no pics. Sorry. Not being a journalist anymore, I felt freed up from the ball and chain of providing visuals to go with the news. grin.gif

There is in fact a boat there. It's pretty big, and pretty wide, and pretty silver, and pretty near done being turned into a most waterworthy Cisco Kid II. She'll even do justice to the Big Lake when her time is right.

Man, that thick aluminum sure wears a long time.

      any luck there? i've never had luck. hoping to break my unlucky streak soon.
    • HugeHogChaser
      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe

      There were 5 maybe 6 boats over at the resort Thursday - Sunday. Heard they were doing some hunting too. Pretty quiet on the bay, most of the docks & lifts are out. Probably going to get real quiet after you show up.

      1) Lumen (lm) Lumen is the international(SI) unit of luminous flux, a measure of overall light emitted by a light source. 2) Candela (cd) Candela is the international(SI) unit of luminous intensity, a measure of light emitted by a light source in a particular direction.
      Any given light source will have different luminous intensities in different directions considered.
      [candela = lumen/solid angle] 3) Beam Angle [Unit : degree] Beam angle is the angle between two directions for which the luminous intensity is 50% of the maximum intensity as measured in a plan through the nominal beam center-line. The beam angle of a lamp gives an idea of how the light beam spread away form the beam center. 4) LUX (lx) Lux is the international(SI) unit of illuminance, a measure of light arriving at a surface, 1 lumen per square foot equals 1 foot-candle, while 1 lumen per square meter equals 1 lux.
      [lux = lumen/m2] 5) Color Temperature / Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) A black-Body radiator will have different color when it is heated up to different temperature(in kelvin). The temperature at which the heated black-body radiator matches the color of the light source is the color temperature of the light source. 6) Color Rendering Index (CR) Color rendering index, ranged from 0-100, measures a light source's ability to reproduce the color of various objects being lit by reference light source, black body radiator (CRI=100) 7) Efficacy (lm/W) Efficacy is the efficacy of a light source to convert electricity power to light expressed in lumen output per unit power input (watt)
      [Efficacy = lumen / wattage] 8) Dimming Not all lighting products are designed for dimming function. None-dimming LED lighting product will cause unpredictable result and may affect the life time of the products. The below figure shows the typical input current variation while adjusting the DC voltage input to dimming and none-dimming product.

      I will check it out a little latter. It looks like a good idea. I do a small diamond wrap on a lot of my ice rods.

      I'm gonna go but not before some of these crops get harvested.  It may not be until Thanksgiving but at least I'll increase my odds if I wait for a better chance of success.

      This is the insulated model. 8x8. If anyone wants it this week I'll let it go for 240.00. Won't  find a better deal!
