      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 .

Garbage Rant

Recommended Posts

fishersofmen

Being out on Buffalo a few times a week I can't help but notice all the garbage all over the ice. I would just like to see everyone pick up after themselves a little bit better. Its no different than throwing your garbage over the side of the boat. I think most of the guys on this site have enough respect for our lakes not to do this, its just too bad the same can't be said for everyone. Maybe we need to start an "adopt a lake" at the end of the ice fishing season just to clean up everyones mess.....

I usually pick up a small shopping bag full of [PoorWordUsage] every time I go out on buffalo. It really ticks me off that people are more respectful of the water they are fishing out of but I wont let it sit there if I see it.

I hear ya. I had once found an oil filter used, with quarts re-filled with used motor oil left out there. Need less to say I took them with me, but couldn't do anything about the 1/2 quart that was spilled onto the ice. I think a black eye might be a good solution for whoever that was! Then the dnr can fine 'em after that! Thanks for keepin it clean, those of us who do, even when it isn't our trash we are picking up. Takes a man to pick up what a mouse leaves behind.

Someone should give local CO Rick Reller a call and let him know the skinny on this.Wright County Sheriff deputy Joel Mackereth might be one to call, as well.He is a recreation enforcement deputy.

This has not only been a problem on Buffalo but all kinds of lakes in Wright County that I've been to. BeeBee, Pelican, Indy...The people that are littering need a hefty fine to remind them that it is unnecessary and ridiculous. How hard is it to keep you trash in your house or use a plastic bag? Don't be a slob, it's not that hard. Without getting into a confrontation, lets all try and keep these "slobs" accountable if they are caught in the act

They don't look nice but they are biodegradable so I don't care much about that. It is the pastic, bottles, and garbage and even cig buts that really gets me.

My reply to call those cops is because of the find of the oil filter, and refilled oil bottles.That is the stuff once it leaks into the water, that really hurts the lake.Not that the other garbage isn't aggravating enough by itself.

Its even worse right next to the access when it says no dumping people put all of there [PoorWordUsage] and garbage right there, thats so sad to see whats happening to our lakes.

I wish some people would just take responsibility and pick up after themselves. What is so hard about bring off the lake what you took on. I'd love to call the cops on someone for doing that but it'd never work.

      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!
