      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 .

Rainy River Bikini Contest

Recommended Posts

SledNeck

Okay, sorry, just needed to get some attention cause from the dates on the threads it looks like this forum is SLLLLLOOOWWW.

I live in the Virginia area and fish up on Kab alot (for bass n Pike)...but have never been fishing up on Rainy or the Rainy river.

Here is the question...where do I put in (launch my boat)if I was to fish the rainy river for bass, this weekend??? I heard in a bar (but cant remember details exactly) that the bass fishing is fanstastic on the river near a dam or something out of the Falls????

Any info on where I should put in would be greatly appreciated and I hope I can be forgiven for the false topic.

Tell me where the bikini contest is, and I'll tell you where you can find bass... grin.gif Just kidding. If you want to fish below the dam in the Falls, there is an access right behind K-Mart in town - you put in there and motor upstream to the dam. Sorry, I don't have any current reports, but it's usually good this time of the year - good luck.

Bass fishing is good by the falls, but if I were you I would focus my fishing attention a little further down stream. Right now the bass are off the breaks and about ready to go into Big Time feeding mode. The last time I was out I was catching them along the weed edges and "mid river" structure. By "mid river" structure I mean sand bars or rocks or dead heads that will hold smallies waiting to ambush prey.

Fish top water on calm days or low light conditions. Crawfish is a top prey for smallies right now so concentrate on that color scheme if you are fishing plastics or raps. Basically keep that boat moving. When you find some smallies slow down and work that area good. You willhave success!!

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing!!

Hey Bill if you don't mind what kind of Topwater baits do you like?

I actually did a bit of Bass fishing a couple of days around Manitou and FJ park this past week and a half. Getting a few decent ones anyways on plastics. Had one evening where it glassed off nicely and I should've had some kinda surface type Bass lure. I'm not much of a Bass guy so what would you reccomend?

Been kinda windy for the Lake of the Woods, and a change of scenery and fish is nice.

This here forum should start coming alive again soon for the fall season. Fun, fun, fun.

Regards....fiskyknut

Yeah, right down the FM.

Best thing to do is imagine your boat is sinking and you have to swim. Which way are you going, US or CA? If it is CA, yould better move over a bit.

Have heard guys talking big about their GPS unit saying that the real border was another 50 feet over or something and that they would fight it if they were ticketed.

I can only imagine the great respect that arguement would receive in a Canadian court!

Be safe and stay on our side.

By the way, shiners are starting to move along the shore in the evening. Pretty small ones yet but think things might get going a bit early this year.

Hey Steve,

It really feels like fall here! Geese are flocked-up and making practice runs and we're starting to see some color in the trees. Some may be due to dry stress but I think the 30's they're predicting for the W/E might really bring it on. Seems early but the 90's tomorrow might make me re-think that.

My weather prediction can't be much worse than the professionals, can it?

Give a call for availabillity. It is changing by the hour.

Gonna be in Canada for a couple of days but will be checking messages and returning calls. If we stand on the top of the island and point the cell phone at Morson we can get ok reception sometimes.

I tryed the river on sunday. I used the shorewood launch and went left. River looks WAYYY low. I fished every piece of structure for a couple miles and didnt even get a hit. Left after 2.5 hours and fished Pelican (Orr) on the way home and slammed em'. Guess I need to take a local with me next time. Well, atleast I know how to get there and have an idea of what to expect.

      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

      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.
