      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 .

buoys removed and lots of deadheads around Stillwater

Recommended Posts

The coast guard removed the buoys this morning around Stillwater. Lots of debris, including some rather pesky deadheads floating around with all the water this Fall. The river went up another 5 inches from 7am to noon today, you need to add 1-2ft to the Lakemaster contours (where accurate.)

Went out to the Hudson launch and everything looked flooded. The loading docks were flooded, and the river choppy from the strong winds. Turned around and went lake fishing instead. frown.gif

My buddy and I fished the river from just north of Prescott through Hudson channel on Sunday thinking the overcast, chop drizzle would turn in some decent fish. Unfortunately I was WRONG and got SKUNKED for the first time ever on the river. When I say skunked I mean no fish not even a sheephead???? Talked to fellow fishermen and none of them were catching anything. Can someone tell me if it was the rising river or why I couldn't catch a fish? We saw the Coast Guard guys pulling buoys and they actually loaded their boat up right after we did at Beanie's. My fishing partner got the thumbs up from them for putting the boat straight on the trailer despite the fast current and whitecaps on the first attempt. I don't know what those two did to get stuck with that duty on such a lousy day. I saw at least 5 trunk size dead heads floating in the Hudson channel, and the current was so swift in the Kinny channel it wasn't worth even trying. Just had to vent as it looked like the perfect conditions and then to blank after sitting in rain sucked. I did bump into the Griz at a local watering hole later and tried to get his wisdom and he just laughed and said he knew it would be bad and that is why he went pheasant hunting confused.gif

Got on the river around 11:00 am yesterday. trolled south of 94 bridge...

Caught 16",18" Eye and 1 small sheephead.

Caught all of them in 20+ feet of water.

Started shallow and moved deeper as the day progressed...When the wind picked up and the rain started was when I caught them all back to back. Don't know if I was just trolling the wrong depth or the rain.

I thought it was going to rain so we left at about 1:30pm.

Meet a guy at the Hudson launch...he says he caught six up north near bayport - also about 20+.

Tried trolling shallow to 20 FOW with no luck. Bounced lindy rigs, and jigs. Nothing....... Very humbling.

While trolling continually had leaves foul our lures even the deep divers. The only fish-like thing I caught was a 36 inch tree branch that actually snapped right at the boat so I don't think I can even count that.........

Going to try lake fishing this next weekend confused.gif

When the waters up like this try shallow shallower and even shallower, if its real flooded try in the rees, river eyes are not as effected by sunlight because of the stained water. try pitching jigs with plastics (ringworm), the constant movement of the tail on the ringworm puts out moer vibration and allows the fish to find it in muddier water easier, dont rule out rattle traps either or other loud crankbaits!

      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.

      I have not seen a bird during season yet but I will get one or two I hope

      Looks like you got one woodcock and a snipe but I could be wrong but great job shooting.

      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!

      Saw over 10 birds on opener....all before legal shooting hour....Only 1 after before the rain started.

      i went out for a couple hours yesterday looking for grouse.  The buddy i was with never has been hunting for grouse or woodcock.  We only saw 1 grouse with no chance for a shot but got both woodcock that flushed.

      As MB said, high water tends to spread fish out and push them tighter to the banks in any slower water they can find.  A "normal" year with low water in October can be ridiculously, almost unfairly good in the river when you find the smallies. There's a reason it's mandatory catch and release now, as they pile up in deeper, slower water and can be quite vulnerable if/when you find them.   That being said, the difference in high vs. low water is not as pronounced above the dams (either the 10th St, Sartell, Little Falls, Blanchard, etc.) as it is below them.  At least in my experience, anyways.
