      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 .

Cliff Lake, Eagan

Has anyone caught anything out of this small lake? I tried fishing several times this year and the only thing caught was a snagged crappie minnow. It's also a very difficult lake to fish as there isn't much access although you could carry in a canoe or float.

It doesn't look like it has anything? No fish, not even bullheads? Maybe the lake was reclaimed and never re-stocked?

Yeah it is. It's difficult to fish but I haven't seen any fish at all either. I think it's empty aside maybe minnows. I dont even think there are bullheads in it.

The Eagan fishing guide report it has having blue gill, bullheads & bass. But I have caught none. But then I don't think that guide is accurate either. confused.gif

I am thinking the lake was reclaimed at some point and never restocked...

Years ago it used to be a DNR walleye rearing pond. In the 90's we carried a boat in and caught some crappies.It's been quite a few years since I've been there so I don't know if there are any fish in there or not. To many ponds and not enough time. I have found some really nice ponds with quality fish.

Andy, I gaze at this pond & drift out of my lane every time we exit 35E to hit Target. I've wondered the same thing. It's on my list of canoe-worthy places to try, but it's pretty far down. And what is this Eagan fishing guide you speak of? I've been to their web site, didn't know there was another resouce that I'm missing!

I thought of canoeing or tubing it several times to see if I can catch a fish. But trying to fish from shore has turned up nothing for me on several visits which has stopped me from bringing the canoe.

On the guides there is only the Eagan website one and there is this little guide booklet they give out at the local stores where you can buy a fishing license.

Back in the early '90's I used to live in Eagan at the Cinnamon Ridge apartments right down Cliff Rd from here and one night I saw a guy come in with a large bucket chock full of Crappies and sunnies... and they were ALL HUGE!! He told me where to go and I did and man was I in shock!! The fish were absolutely huge (Sunnies only) they all had black spots on them from living in those weeds I'd assume?? I only went there a few times and did the catch and release thing... boy was it fun! I went back in 2001 and tried again in the spring and not one bite! I figured it was either over fished or winter kill that did that sweet spot in. Memories.....

Thanks Andy, I'll ask around & see if I can dig one up. And I'll try that pond sometime, too. What's an hour to waste when one might find a good, private fishing hole?

      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!
