      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 .

What happened to the med thread. I've been out of town since Monday . Anyone been out there? I didnt see the med thread except for the get together. Mabey I just missed it. I don't know if I'll be out this weekend. I think I am boatless. My brother is borrowing the boat.
Med man are you back? I did fairly well last weekend out in the usual spots, No eyes but about everything else.

Well looks like tomorrow morning is a go. My bro couldnt get the fam together early enough and decided not to take the boat. I am planning on the usual 5am or so start. Going to try and get tires finally so only be out until 9:30 or so. Probably will repeat but stay a little later on Sunday morning depending.
Yeah ebass. I still have your frabill bucket. Cant believe we havent fished together since Red Wing, back when it was still cold out!

Tim

I was on a med cruise yesterday with CrappieMagnet, turns out we are old aquaintences from "back in the day". Anyway we met at Harty's and then got on the lake and hit sunnies for about 4 hours solid. Threw a lot more back than we kept. Fish about 8 Ft deep with natural colored platics on a 16th or 32nd oz jig and a bobber.

Hey Ebass, whats you're new trick? I don't fish the islands exclusively. I fish all over the lake. I am just more fond of the islands then other areas of the lake.

Were you out fishing the humps? I was out there and one other boat came out to that area and was still there when I left. I was going to see if it was anyone from fm because I knew crappie magnet was out in that spot last weekend and thought it might have been him. I didnt know because I havent met him. Joe said he was there. I was in the little 12'. I did ok with some nice crappies and a northern around 30". Another nice morning thats for sure. I left around 9. I thought the rain was coming later and didnt bring the gear. My legs were too cold and wet.

Went out Sunday night from 5:15 to 8:30. Trolled Raps along shore in 10 to 18 feet. Caught around a dozen northerns and two bass. Shad color seemed to work the best. Raps running about 10 to 12 feet down. Felt good to get out. Can't wait to do it again.

Went out from 5-12 this morning. I ended up with 14 Bass and 8 Northerns. All the Bass were between 4-6 pounds, and all the Northerns were between 24-34 inches.

I went out last night (Tuesday). It was like rush hour at the access. I think I'll stick to am and early afternoon fishing.
Fishing was slow to say the least. Found a couple of those humps you guys talk about and caught a couple. Let them all go as usual.
Hey Med Man, what's your favorite presentation for your bass and northerns?
You can email me at olepresley@aol.com
Thanks,
Ole

Ole, I don't really have a favorite presentation. When I was out on tuesday I caught fish on 12 different lures/presentation styles. I am a big fan of crankbaits though. Trolling cranks is a good way of locating active fish.

Heres a few pics of fish I've caught this year. I've got a lot more, but I'm only going to post a few. The first two are of me, the last one is of a friend of mine.

Oh yeah, I was gonna say that we caught 14 Crappies that day, all between 12-14 inches. We caught them while we were trolling #10 Deep Down Husky Jerks for Northerns.

Med Man,
Thanks for the tip. I really haven't gotten in to crankbaits much as I keep coming up with lots of weeds. But that's where the fish are! I'll have to get a little more serious about it and give it more time. Do you primarily throw those outside the weed edge or inside? You said you troll a lot? Any tips about that?
Thanks,
Ole

Ole, I couldn't tell you how to fish the weeds since never fish the weeds. The last time I trolled a weedline on Medicine was on opener. There is no real "weedline" on Medicine as of now. All there is are patches of weeds in Medicine. Theres a stretch on the south end of the lake where there is a large patch of weeds. I would look for bottom content changes or points or underwater islands etc.... Medicine has tons of structure too fish. I suggest getting a good map and study the lake.

Well took a break from the roofing side work today and gave the old pond another go 'round. It was a bit brisk at 5am. I ended up with the rain pants and life jacket on to try and conserve a little warmth. Yeah, I'm a puss. Stopped in and talked to Joe to warm up a touch. Fishing was slow. No norts or bass but caught a half dozen crops 10-12".

Geez Moby, you are a total wuss. But yet you went out ice fishing on that day when the actual air temp was -24 degrees and the wind chill was -34. That doesn't quite make sense? wink.gif

Thanks for the tip!
What's a good map for Med.? I have the Sportsmen's connection west metro book of lakes but it's very general and misses a lot of structure.
I found one of those sunken islands (or humps) and caught a few bass on crankbaits. It was kind of hard throwing between the tubers and the jetskier's but I managed before I ducked into shallower waters.
May your worm keep wiggling!
Ole

Ole, the best map out there of Medicine is made by Fishing Hot Spots. I've seen this brand of map at Gander Mountain and Fleet Farm. But still, this map still has plenty of flaws. But its by FAR better than the map you have.

I know but I was prepared and in a house with a heater. I was unprepared Monday. I hope to be done roofing by saturday. I stuck it out for 4 hours in drizzle last night after work. I should be done in a couple of days if the weather is decent.

Ole the key to avoiding the skiers, at least most of them (there are always a couple out by 8am)is to get a couple hours of quality fishing in before they come out. I prefer 5am-10 or 11.

Went out yesterday from 9-6, my paps went out with me at 3. We ended up catching everything execpt Carp and Bullheads. Fishing was pretty consistant for a change. Between us we ended up with something like 50 fish, only 2 dozen of them being Panfish.

      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 went out for a couple hours yesterday looking for grouse.  The buddy i was with never has been hunting for grouse or woodcock.  We only saw 1 grouse with no chance for a shot but got both woodcock that flushed.

      As MB said, high water tends to spread fish out and push them tighter to the banks in any slower water they can find.  A "normal" year with low water in October can be ridiculously, almost unfairly good in the river when you find the smallies. There's a reason it's mandatory catch and release now, as they pile up in deeper, slower water and can be quite vulnerable if/when you find them.   That being said, the difference in high vs. low water is not as pronounced above the dams (either the 10th St, Sartell, Little Falls, Blanchard, etc.) as it is below them.  At least in my experience, anyways.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has produced six new, state-of-the-art maps that will make it easier and safer for people to explore, hunt, and recreate in state forests.   “The DNR has updated six state forests with 53 more to go,” said Forrest Boe, director of the DNR Forestry Division. “This five-year effort will include updating maps for all of Minnesota’s state forests.” State forest users now have two maps options. A geoPDF map will allow users to download a map onto a mobile device using a variety of map apps and then track their location as a blue dot on the screen. The new user-friendly, paper maps highlight the unique recreation features of each forest and include pop-out maps for popular campgrounds and day-use areas. “The little blue dot that appears on the map on my phone goes with me whether I’m on or off-trail,” said Laura Duffey, DNR state forest map project coordinator. “This feature lets people know exactly where they are in a state forest—no more getting lost.” The maps are also more detailed than previous versions and highlight the endless recreation opportunities in state forests, such as hiking, mountain biking, birding, berry picking, cross-country skiing, hunting, and horseback, ATV and snowmobile riding. Many state forests also offer campgrounds, fishing piers, boat launches, swimming beaches, and picnic areas. The six new maps are available in time for fall hunting and cover more than 240,000 acres of state forest land and thousands of miles of trails. New geoPDF and paper maps are now available for: Paul Bunyan State Forest in Cass and Hubbard counties Badoura State Forest in Cass and Hubbard counties Croix State Forest in Pine County Huntersville State Forest in Cass, Hubbard and Wadena counties Lyons State Forest in Wadena County. Chengwatana State Forest in Pine and Chisago counties The Paul Bunyan and Badoura state forests are popular spots for hunters. Combined, they contain two campgrounds and day-use areas, four off-highway vehicle trails, five wildlife management areas (WMA), two ruffed grouse management areas, and four state game refuges. They also have hiking, biking, snowmobiling and skiing trails. The Huntersville and Lyons state forests are popular with hunters. Each state forest contains four WMAs and several miles of trails and roads for off-highway vehicles. Additionally, the Huntersville State Forest offers two campgrounds, a horse campground, and 24 miles of designated horse trails. The St. Croix State Forest offers a variety of year-round recreation opportunities. It has 20 miles of horseback trails and a horse campground with 56 campsites. In the winter snowmobilers can enjoy 42 miles of trails while in the summer mountain bikers can cruise 25 miles of trails. The Boulder Campground and day-use area has 22 secluded campsites and access to Rock Lake for swimming, fishing and boating. The Chengwatana State Forest contains the Snake River Campground and several miles of off-highway motorcycle and all-terrain vehicle trails. Three state water trails run through the forest: Kettle River, Snake River, and St. Croix River. Snowmobliers also use the Matthew Lourey State Trail, which runs through the forest. The new maps also shows locations of National Park Service campsites along the St. Croix River.Digital, geoPDF maps are available on the state forest’s webpage at www.mndnr.gov/stateforests. People can get a free paper map at a local DNR office or the DNR Info Center by sending an email to info.dnr@state.mn.us or calling 888-646-6367, Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-8 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
