      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 .

Started the day out on the north end Mud flats (6:00am). Caught one fish at about 9:30 (24"). Decided to make the trek to 7 mile where we had some success last week. The first hour of being there we watched one boat catch all the walleyes with everyone watching in amazement. The lake at this time was almost dead calm.

After being there a while the wind all of the sudden really started to blow. This little change of wind caused the walleyes to go from somewhat inactive to strapping on the feedbags and pretty soon everyone was catching walleyes. I have never seen such a suttle change in the weather affect fishing success in such a small time period; all we need was a little wind.

Ended up with about a dozen or so walleyes; 2 eaters with rest being your cookie cutter 22-24" Mille Lacs walleyes. A slow day turned into a great day on the water in a matter of minutes! Can't wait to come up again...in fact...it's all I can seem to think about...maybe I need a shrink who specializes in Mille Lacs fever.

There's no cure for that. I'm the same way when I driving home from a day fishing up there. Always thinking how soon I can get back up there.

I have been on the lake many times either when the wind dies down, and the fish slow down, or the experience you had.

Sometimes when the wind kicks up, spinners turn them on also.

We had a similar experience yesterday. Things were real slow until we found the combo the walleyes were looking for. Unfortunately we had to leave at 3:00 when the wind started to pick up again. Sounds like we missed the prime time. I can't wait to get back out there.

Witnessed a guy being towed back in from 8 mile flat too. A good samaritan in a Crestliner with a Yamaha volunteered.

What time of the day were you at 7 Mile? We arrived there around 2pm. Had what felt like a good size walleye break my line just as the sinker was surfacing, but after that we only had some short biters that just wouldn't cooperate....

We were using 8-10' leaders with a red hook, and a chartruse bead, and a leach. My father-in-law tried the same combo with a crawler with no success. We drifted the west side of 7 mile, and worked the entire circumference of the flat. We talked to some other guys at the landing last eve. and they were using 14' leaders with chartruse, and orange hooks, and crawlers. They said they did well.

I guess I was so busy trying to keep the boat on the break, as well as navigating around everyone else that I didn't consider trying another color combination. Ah, the good ole' finicky walleye!!!! I'll have to store this one in the memory bank for future use!

Long rods and a long net handle. But realy you dont need anything over 10feet.

My wife and I were at the lake for the last 3 days. We didn't hit the mud till 11am every day and still caught fish. 14 over 20" and several slots. The big ones came on large chart. spinners and crawlers, slots came on lead with with blue shad raps. largest 27,26,2-25,5-24,5-22 These all came from the same flat. Most of the time we were the only boat there.

We had a pretty good bite on Thursday. We started on the SE corner of Sherman's where we landed 6 fish (two were under the slot). Then about 9 we moved out to 7 mile and had consistent bite until we left. We had a 30 fish day and brought 9 nice eaters home. We were long lining, but we had different colors (orange w/orange bead, chart. w/chart. bead & red w/red bead). Nightcrawlers were the ticket.

      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!
