      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 .

Has anyone eaten at The Boulders north of Walker?

Recommended Posts

Commanche Jim

We'll be heading up to Cass in August and I was wondering if it was worth the trip to the Boulders.....

Also, any other recommendations for dinner in the Walker area?

Been to the mexican place and the pizza place down from Reeds.....How's the steakhouse across from Northern Lights or the Ranch House or The Wharf? It's been 20 years since I've been to the Ranch House.

Any help would be appreciated.

Tried it last year and it was very good. A little upscale and somewhat pricey but worth it. Ranch house still good as well as Benson's and Zona Rosa's. Charley's is good also. The Wharf is gone. Enjoy your meal and good luck fishing.

Charlies Boat House along side his normal restaurant is great outdoor dining. Saturday night crab leg feeds, great ribs, lobster and artichoke dip, etc.

Great food in a great setting!

If you make it to Longville, the wife and I really enjoy visiting Patrick's each year. Real nice dinner and/or lunch. The salad bar is always great along with the main course. We especially like the Walleye dinner.

We try to save room for ice cream at Frosty's, also in Longville.

Enjoy

I've been told by a few people that the buffet, Dancing Fire(?), at Northern Lights is very good. Boulders is "northern MN upscale", a little pricey, but good and the Smiling Moose, the new place south of town is good too. The Ranch House is a typical, good steakhouse.

In Bemidji, CatTails by the NW landing is good, along with burgers at Slims or Corner. Of course, there's the normal chains (AppleBees, Green Mill, Ground Round). Brigids Crossing is a neat little bar.

I have been to the Northern Lights Friday night buffet as recently as 3 weeks ago, Friday night is steak night, and well worth the price of admission, couple that with the jumbo shrimp and we have ourselves a WINNER!!!!!!!!

I haven't tried it yet, but I have heard that Boulders is very tasty as well, hard to drive past the casino and go on into Walker when I don't have too though.

Peppers is gone. The Wharf is still there. Lucky Moose is good. But do not overlook the Fireside Supper Club east of the casino about 4 miles on the south side of the road. Zona's, Bensons and Village Square are all still good. A very good sandwich can be had at the Walker Bay Coffee Co. which is located a couple of doors away from Lundrigans.

Wonder if they have changed cooks at the casino buffet or if it is only certain nights that are good because I have been very disappointed the two times I ate there...

There is a nice German restaurant a little outside of Walker on the road toward Park Rapids - can't think of the name of it off-hand but you can't miss it on the right hand side of the road.

Liked Arthur Bryants but heard that it got torn down - is that true?

Arthers was torn down, much to my disappointment. I looked forward to a cold one on their deck after the long drive up.

Have heard good reports on the german place too.

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      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.
