      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 .

Lukes first fish!

Recommended Posts

Slyster

Hey.. I have to share... even though we haven't had great luck yet.. we DID get a few fish last weekend.. including Luke's (my 4 y/o) first fish EVER. Was so fun! These pictures are from Lake Gervais and Spoon lake. As I stated in another post.. we finally got a motor.. so this last weekends trip was really our (my) first ever for the metro area. I fish a lot in Quetico, Canada (conoe) and have wonderful times up there.. but still a newbie down here.

I teach 7th and 8th grade:
7th = Biology
8th = Earth Science

And I used to work at 3M science dept for 3 years.. I love science.... my main interests are biology (birding, fishing, camping) and geology (rocks) and really enjoy astronomy... and weather as well.. nothing better than a severe thunderstorm! (I am an active storm chaser in the summers..)

And also into gaming (Quake3) and computers...

I have my own gaming clan and forum over at http://www.slyster.com/fightclub

All fun stuff!!... no?

lots of luck

Slyster,

Man thats great. Puts everything into perspective. It looks like you did it right, broke up fishing with some playground action. I have pics just like those from about 20-22 years ago, and memories that are just as vivid. Make an investment now with your time and patience, and you'll have a son as a best friend and fishing partner for life.

p.s. With your rig you'll always be first to the "hot spots", pulling the boat with the hotrod.

Hey Sylvester that looks alot like Gervais or actually Spoon in between Gervais and Keller. Nothing like getting the little one in to it right away, that's what I like to see.

I see you are gamer too, my friends and I frequent eachothers homes with our computers for all out LAN gaming. Well we do in the winter anyway, now that summers here not so much to much fishing to do...

Yeah.. my dumb car sticks out like a sore thumb surrounded by pickups and SUV's at every boat launch. Rear wheeled drive and light as well.. so sometimes I can't pull the boat up.. even that tiny boat.. wheels spin on the sand. Stinks.

yep.. fun stuff.. my boy will remember that day for a long time!

Went there last night too.. just for an hour with wife a daughter this time.. 2 y/o Kelsey caught HER first fish too now... although.. really not on her own...

      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.
