      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 .

Grand Lake

Where are the fish on this lake, The last two weeks have been really poor fishing. Marking fish there coming up but no action. We have the house on the far east side 29' of water. 5-6 fish houses around us, no luck though looking for walleyes and crappies.

Move the house and go exploring, people arent going to tell you where to fish and find fish, gotta go find them yourself.

I agree, the only way to catch fish in that lake is moving til you find them, they never really concentrate anywhere, especially this time of year.

You'll find fish both shallow and deep in Grand. If you're marking fish then you are in hte general area. Make a few moves like the guys have mentioned. I'd recommend getting a bit shallower.

Tried Grand not last weekend, but the weekend before. Had word of some crappies biting. Started a ways east of the access and drilled holes anywhere from 8-16 feet working east. Ended up with a couple small sunnies. Ended up running out to the east end of the lake by the bar. Drilled lot's of holes around the houses out there with nothing but small perch. I do not fish this lake to often, usually in the spring right around ice out. I know they are in there, but where at this time of year is beyond me.

True. I'm not sure about winter, but there are decent weeds all along the south shoreline about 100 yards out. They continue around the corner and to the west side of the lake too.

You'll find scatter cabbage beds along the breaklines. There will be some in the areas you are talking about. If not work your way east a bit.

Once again that is another lake that is best learned by experiences, however lots of people tend to fish out in front of the resort, i've tried it a few times and usally come up empty except for a few small ones here and there. One of my favorite lakes for late ice panfish though, because you can find clear water in 5-8 ft sometimes more and you can sight fish them. 2 yrs ago i was doing that and caught a limit of nice sunfish a couple 1lb crappies and a 6.5lb bucketmouth, that was fun had to let him go, couple weeks earlier and he;d oh been on the wall!!

      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.
