      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 .

Hey all, can anyone give me any kind of heads up on fishing baypoint marina through the ice? Never been over there in the winter - does it get fished at all in winter? People using shacks, portables, etc...?

appreciate any info.

Thanks

after first ice, the fishing gets real slow. you have to work hard to get fish. You will see alot of guys fishing around the poles that go down from the docks. I normally don't fish it after first ice. small jigs and waxies or small crappie minnows. you can put up tip ups in the west corner for some northerns. hope this helps

I agree with JP, don't go to bay point right now. Fished monday, graphed tons of fish, but those fish would not bite. From 8-noon caught 2 dink crappies on artificials, fish wanted nothing to do with spoons, raps, or anything to do with waxies. Fished all the way out to the gas dock. Went to Lake City and if you are not on the exact spot you need to be on you will not catch a single fish. SLOW. It takes a few times out there to get into them, and to figure out how to get them to go. If you don't know the area, don't go save yourself some cash and mess around with panfish close to you.

Hey Steve -

I don't seem to have a valid email address for you any more... You should still have my work email? Drop me a line & we should hook up for some hard water action.

I was at Cabelas yesterday and I saw they had a fishing report on the board for baypoint for panfish. Any truth to this?

Ice fishing. The main channel stays open but bays and harbors out of the current freeze solid.

There are always a few portables in the Baypoint area during ice season so I assume they are catching some fish. Have heard it's a fairly decent crappie spot. I have never ice fished it - if I am on Pool 4 I am looking for sumo waldos.

Good point if your going to drive to Red Wing to fish you might as well bring the boat, which I plan on doing in the very near future!!!

There are maybe 15 or so shacks in the harbor at Baypoint, and I see people driving on and off the ice regularly when I go by there, so somebody must be catching something out there. Or maybe they're just drinking beer, who knows. \:D

A call to Four Seasons Sport Shop or Ike's Bait and Tackle, both located about a half-mile from Baypoint, should provide some info on the bite there.

There is also Red Wing Pottery Pond northwest of Baypoint along the same road. It's small, but is stocked with trout and has a continuous season with a limit of 3 (only one over 16"). I never see many people there, but I only get through there on weekdays.

      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.
