      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 .

Somebody to guide Lake Trout Fishing Ely area

Recommended Posts

ITSATHRILL

We have never ventured up to that area in the winter and have decied to go up and try it throught the ice, does anybody know of somebody that will guide us on the ice to try and catch some Trout ( would like to try for some lakers ) and what is the best time for them through the ice? We want whoever we choose to not only guide us but to "teach" us so we can be self sufficient next time we come up.

Go to Burntside or Snowbank and find some structure in 40-60 ft. of water. Jig some spoons 10 ft. off the bottom or where ever your vex shows fish. Hang a dead stick or tip-up with a cisco half way down the water collum. If you hook into one hold on!

I might be available to guide you depending on when you were thinking about coming up here. Give me a shout. phantom_lord@charter.net Anytime is a good time to be fishing trout, although, the earlier in the season, the better.

I know of no licensed lake trout winter guide in the Ely area except for a handful of mushers who take clients into Knife and other BWCAW lakes via dog sleds. There are plenty of knowledgeable winter laker anglers on this forum, and several live in Ely.

I'd suggest coming to this winter's Burntside Bash which, as Frank said, is free and full of great tips from he, I and Chunkytrout on how to ice lakers. Frank has 30 years experience at that game and Chunky and I, though with fewer years under our belts, fish mostly Burntside for winter lakers, and fish them hard. If after the bash you still feel you want a guide for Burntside, I reckon you can ask around there and someone will help you out. In the immediate Ely area, laker fishing means Burntside or Snowbank, and Burntside is the better option on any given day. And for what it's worth, I believe a guide should ALWAYS be a teacher.

The bash is generally the last weekend in January. If you have more questions, my e-mail is always listed in my signature below each post.

ITSATHRILL, I highly suggest you show up to the Bash. I would mark January 26th 2008 on your calendar with a big star and make reservations a head of time for your stay as it's usually busy in town that weekend. There, you will meet IMHO some of the best ice anglers in the state as well as alot of newbies to winter laker fishing. There's alot to be learned and alot of fun to be had.

Amazing. Still August and already the Burntside Bash talk has started. grin.gif

The bash is the same weekend each year as a massive snowmobile run that comes through Ely, so it's a good idea to get motel reservations early.

Well, I am glad that I read this thread, I never knew there was a burntside bash in January. I will definitely be coming up for that if I am free. Hope to meet some of the fm'ers on here and maybe catch a trout or two! I am sure I will learn something too as I know nothing about fishing for lake trout! Thanks for giving me the heads up about the bash guys!

      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.
