      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 .

It is very crispy here! I have placed restrictions on myself, and would suggest that for anyone else. The risk for a campfire may be small, but the potential consequences terrible. Many trees are dropping leaves, and ferns and blueberry plants appear dead. I would suggest a campstove, or at most a charcoal cookfire. On the bright side, the weather is comfortable, few annoying insects, and decent fishing. At this moment there is a pine fly hatch going on, but it does not seem to be affecting the fishing as mayflys xometimes do. Tonight's pic: e8550eb7.jpg

according to the ash river center you can still have campfires in the rings. She said it could change in a couple days if its dry.

Just received an email from the DNR. Effective Friday Aug 17th at 8:00 a.m. an increase in restrictions will take place. For Cook, Lake, and St. Louis Counties a full fire ban will be in place. NO CAMPFIRES allowed even in designated fire rings due to the dry conditions. Only exception is campfires are allowed in the abovce counties that are within 1 mile of Lake Superior and are in a designated/patrolled campground. So if you are in these counties and are further away from Lake Superior than 1 mile then campfires are prohibited.

Bummer! I was camping up on Namakan this past weekend and campfires were still allowed. Looks like I picked the right weekend! smile.gif

FROM THE NPS -

VOYAGEURS NATIONAL PARK ISSUES BURNING RESTRICTIONS

Severe drought conditions and lack of rainfall have increased fire danger that continues to plague Northeastern Minnesota. In cooperation with area counties, the Minnesota DNR, U.S. Forest Service, and the Bureau of Indian Affairs, fire restrictions will be implemented in Voyageurs National Park.

Effective Friday, August 17, 2007 at 8:00 am, Voyageurs National Park will prohibit all campfires within the park. The following restrictions will apply throughout the park:

Not Allowed:

· recreational fires (campfires)

· charcoal or paper fueled fires or grills

Allowed:

· gas and propane fired camp stoves, grills, or similar devices

“We ask for everyone’s understanding and cooperation during this critical time,” VNP Superintendent Miller said. “We will remove these restrictions as soon as conditions within the park become favorable.”

Fire restrictions on still as of 8/23/07, 2pm. We have had very little rain in the last few weeks, just about 2 tenths of an inch. It will take some serious rain before fires are allowed.

      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.
