      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 think it's time we all give our forum sponsor, Reel Fishing and Tackle in Madison Lake, an electronic "thank you" for all their hard work in holding together a great bait shop right here in south central MN. It's also nice to see them continue to support our efforts here on Fishing Minnesota! For me, personally, I can't thank Joe and Matt enough for their referrals to my guide service and their awesome customer service when I've had equipment issues, etc.

I'm first; Thanks Reel Fishing and Tackle!

Thanks goes out to the gang at Reel Fishing and Tackle for all they do for the members and fisherman in the SC area. They are always there to also help out with our get-togethers.

Way to go. Everytime I drive by I will stop in as they always have fresh bait and are always willing to give one that Hot Bite info for the area lakes.

T.O. you will be happy to hear a friend and I were in Reel Bait this week and I am pleased to say that even the nice lady that was working was very educated in fishing and the products she was selling!! we ended up getting 9 crankbaits 8 of them were your suggestions (#5 shallow shad raps). She was able to lead us right to the size, color, and shallow running raps we wanted. Heck even the dog was nice. Thanks for leading us to a shop that caters to us fishermen! Todd P.S. We didnt do to bad fishing on Madison either!!!

Thanks Reel Fishing and Tackle. They have what you need for the local lakes and are not pushy in trying to sell stuff. The staff always seems to be in the know on what to try and nice to talk to. Thanks again and keep up the good work.

I couldn't agree more with you TO I purchase all my bait there and decided it was time for a new rod a few weeks ago. They sold me on the Falcon, wow is that rod sensitive, took it to Mille Lacs and felt the slightest bump set the hook and found a crayfish clamped onto to the leech in 30 fow. Those rods are amazing, no more Loomis for this guy. Keep up the great work Reel Fishing And Tackle.

Any time anyone has comments, good or bad, please pass them my way. The only way to improve is to build on the good and eliminate the bad.

Here's to continued good fishing.

I bought a Lx-5 and a otter, small cabin, at reel fishing and tackel last Dec. the price was equal to the big stores and they set the otter together for me, which the other stores don;t. I picked up the otter and L X- 5 the next day. Joe or one of his help called the next day told me I had not gotten the cover for the otter and should pick it up next time I got to their store. I didn;t know the cover came with the otter because it was extra at the other stores. Thanks Reel Fishing and Tackel for a goog deal.

Thanks Joe.

Thanks Joe.


We were just up there last week. HOT!HOT!HOT! and I don't mean fishing. The DNR just did a forage survey and the perch fry are thick and just the right size plus we hit a mayfly hatch. Tough fishing, but the Ranger knows what to do up there so you bet we're ready. Just give us a call. I know Matt wants another trip.

      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

      any luck there? i've never had luck. hoping to break my unlucky streak soon.

      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.
