      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 .

I fished through the ice at Dresbach last weekend--check the "Rochester-Winona" forum. It was pretty slow.

Fished below the dam at Dresbach from 2:30 to 6:10 PM today. Landed a 12" and 13" sauger, and missed one strike in that time. There were quite a few people out, but the guys I talked to had caught nothing, and I didn't see any other fish caught. (But, I was in my shack most of the time.) The ice where I was sitting was about 8" beneath several inches of hard-packed snow.

I saw about a dozen trucks there last weekend? How was the ice, and the fishing? Will it be safe this weekend? I might have to try my first main channel, walleye excursion. Panfish are fun, but that's all I've ever caught through the ice besides 1 bass and a couple trout at Foster.

fishing the dam is something I always wanted to try just couldn't get up the courage to go out on the ice alone and could never find anyone who would come with...... so Iam going to throw this out there.... If you wouldn't mind someone tagging along send me a email irabuck@yahoo.com

Has anybody use the Buck-Shot Dropper spoon? I just picked up a couple hoping to use them sunday for some wallies down there. Is the bait shop in La Crescent open on Sunday, and if so what time?

Buckshot spoons are definitly my go to for jigging especially dingier water like the river. Was wondering if the ice below the dam is still okay havent been there for a week or so was hoping to give it a try monday...If the ice is no good is open water available around there yet?

well i just accidently deleted a long review of local dams and suager / wally bite. so heres an abreviated version. Bass Camp Whitman dam, ice is poor or worse. Fountain City / Winona, ice is Ok well below the dam near the small boat harbor and down stream. I think the bite has been slow there. I fished the winona spillway yesterday and today, ice is fine and the bite was slow but we did take a few wally's and sauger. most were small. Trempleau ice is Ok but there has been a ton of fish taken there over the last 5 weeks and i think the bite is slow there too. Dresbach is still good and they are still catching as mentioned above.

this is my first winter fishing wally and suager through the ice! its been awesome. PRODRIVERUNNER and RON BURGUNDY, Just go where all the other people are and fish near them, if they are there, its safe and you can learn from them fast. jigs with pike minows and jiggin raps. I found i could catch them on many sizes and colors. Thats what i did all winter and did i learn a ton! now if i could just get into a limit of crappy.

hows that for a post from a winonan? i heard that we are lukers and i wanted to try to get involved. its all good. have fun.

Yes, thanks for the reply. Not bad for a lurker. (lol) I don't have much for heavy jigs so I stayed by the wall for about an hour and then went to Lawrence. I saw some huge sunnies and crappies but couldn't get them to bite. My brother did catch one big crappie and lost another. On a side note, it did reach 70 degrees in my ice cube without the heater! MMM Toasty!

      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.
    • HugeHogChaser
      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.
