      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 .

Albino squirrel

This guy has been stalking me for the last 3 weeks since I first saw him. I would only see him if I left the camera at home.

This is near Lk. of the Isles

Good photos. I know of two neighborhoods in Minnetonka and one in Excelsior that have numerous albino squirrels. The Excelsior city park has had them for many years and they go to great lengths to protect them. The first time I saw one there, I thought we should call the newspaper, and all of a sudden there were three of them out there feeding. If you ever see an all black one, that I would like to see a picture of. They're supposed to be much rarer than albinos.

I have seen these all over the Uptown area when working. And I have seen a couple all black, they look like a mink. I will try to get a picture of the black.

I have seen them! About three weeks ago I was awed at the sight of the albino one. You say the black ones are rare? Get this...between my three neighbors, we now have the albino one and have had a black one for a few years now. Even better, the black one has half a tail, and he still climbs those electrical wires every day. I always tell my friends about the black on and he almost always shows off in their presence. I love them. I do hate the little brown one that chewed up a ton of wires under the hood of my Pathfinder this year. Anyone want to lend me a pellet gun?

Catch 'em fast!

Great pics! I'd love to see an albino squirrel in person. I'd love to see them rumored black squirrels in person also! All I see is the classic brown and grey.

At least I have seen the White Deer that are on the ANL property in Illinois. smile.gifsmile.gif

The albinos were fairly common in SW Mpls. when I was growing up. But they're always interesting to see. How about flying squirrels? I've only seen one over the years in Mpls. It was on my tree one night about 2 a.m. I suppose they are common, but being nocturnal most people don't see them. Vern

Lost: my brother has hit not one, but two of those Albino deer out at ANL. Dang things are like rats.
I hear some accentric guy released them. They are Asiatic.

Some of those are not albino. They are just white. Farmington is full of them. They do look a little funny running up a tree.

Our neighborhood in East Bloomington has plenty of the white and I have seen the black ones, although much more scarce.

Last weekend in Ill. I caught an albino catfish-about 2 lbs - Ugly looking thing, not nearly as cool as the albino squirrel or deer. Had to bring it home to get a picture. Then a neighbor tells me there are several in that small lake. Had lots of leeches in its belly-hope that "taste" is out of the filets by the time I eat it.

I stayed @ Campbell's Resort on Lac La Croix in Ontario last summer - they had 2 taxidermied albino beaver - 1 in the office & 1 in the dining hall. Not just old & faded but albino. Bizarre.
There is an albino squirrel hanging around the wildlife viewing room @ Richardson Nature Center at Hyland Lake Park Reserve in Bloomington if you'd want to see one in the wild close-up.

We have an albino squirrel that frequents the bird feeder in the back yard. Have not seen him for a few weeks though so hope he is okay. There are some albino deer at the campground by Mille acs as well.

We've got an all black one at our place in Bemibji, hangs around quite a bit. It's pretty funny when he tries to hid in a tree, he doesn't know he sticks out like a sore thumb...I'll try to get a photo to post

i had an uncle who one time shot an albino porcupine he brung it home and showed my grandpa.(i'm an ojibway indian by the way)my grandpa told him this was not a good thing he said that this thing was put on the earth for a special reason probley unknown to man maybe just to the animals. my unlce did'nt care and said it made a good trophy anyway. my grampa warned of the bad luck that would follow. The next year one of my uncles twin daughters died. The following year his youngest son lost an eye.my uncle himshelf just fell over one day hit his head and died doctors said it was an accident. The family thought the bad luck died with him but not so his oldest son was crossing the train tracks one day and was hit by a train.He lived but still swears he never seen that train coming.True story this porcupine can be seen in the becker county historical society in detroit lakes mn. The curator ask my family for permisson to tell the story but know one will too afraid of the curse.

      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.

      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
