      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 .

Seasaw ... Got back last week from a 4-day trip with Rainy Lake Houseboats. We traveled thru the Brule narrows, and out towards Blueberry Island on the East side of the lake. Mid-lake reefs were the ticket out there, fishing 30-50 feet deep. Find the top of a reef, throw out a marker, and drive around the reef in a in-out pattern until you mark some fish on the electronics. If you find a decent amount of "hooks", throw out another marker, and work that spot. I found that the other marker @ the top of the reef acted like a dummy marker (pulled other boats there), while we caught fish deeper. Lindy rig with a 3 foot snell and a small yellow or orange bead in front of the hook ... crawlers or leeches (bring both). That was my first time on the east end of the lake ... awesome fishery! Not sure if that pattern remains in August, but there's my $.02. We moored in Brown's Bay, and had short boat rides to quite a few reefs. It was kinda a roll of the dice ... the site was marked tent-site only (just inside of Brown's Bay on the left), but we figured we would move if asked. Very nice spot, with sand beach and fire-ring, and blueberries by the bucket-full! Also extremely well-protected from all winds. Have fun and good luck!

Hey Sea!

Lake Erie huh! My grandparents are from Ohio, and I used to get out every once in a while to Lake Erie. I can remember pulling those Erie Deeries SP? FYI try them here. Just like at home with a gob of crawler. Good TImes! I'll probably be down there in the December time visiting family and friends close to the Port Clinton area. This isn't any secret information, but be prepared with spinner rigs in hammered gold and Chartruesse. Get yourself some shiners, leeches and Crawlers. Literally these fish change there moods day in and day out up here. pull or cast these presentations along deep humps and hold on buddy! Hope you have a great trip! Your coming from a great fishery, but this is arguably the most beautiful body of water in the world!

Just up there last week for the 3rd time in 5 years. We did fairly well. Limited out only 1 time on 1st day in 45 min!!! The hot weather didn't help. We drove thru the Brule twice and caught a few eyes each time. I never did well deep(over 20') We also did a lot better the last hour before dark and into the night....full moon. The fish come shallow at night 4-6' and for us it was easier to fish and find fish. Good Luck. I marked a ton of fish between 30-40 but never pulled any nice 'eyes out.

      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!
