      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 .

Bow Fishing Spots

Recommended Posts

Metroguy99

I have recently purchased the spool and arrow need for a bow fishing excursion. Although i dont have a very good shot, i am looking for some area ponds/lakes with large carp populations. I have been thinking of going over to Harriet.

Thanks for your suggestions

Metro,
Keller Lake USED to be good for that BUT they haven't cleaned the lake so now its REALLY weedy and dirty. BUT there are still some spots at Keller for bow fishing

I'll offer three suggestions based on what I've seen:

1. North shore of Harriet.
2. SW corner of Medicine (were absolutely everywhere on 6/4)
3. Tanagers and Maxwell on Tonka. Again, everywhere, but this was earlier in the spring.

From past experience you might try north arm on Tonka as well. I remember they were so crazy they crashed into my boat in the milfoil.

I'd try Basset Creek Park in Crystal. We used to go down there and catch (by line) and spear tons of them. There is a creek area and a medium sized pond area. Its east of Douglas Drive on 32ND Ave. There are a few parking spots. Good luck!

Harriet is loaded with big carp, but I doubt that it's legal to bowhunt them. Too many people around & too many restrictions. There are lots of big carp cruising the shallows on Harriet right now & the water is clear. Great option if it's legal. Good luck, Vern

North Arm is loaded with spawning carp. They are up so shallow that they are half out of the water. Remember, there is no limit so.....STICK 'EM.......BY THE HUNDREDS! As if you can't tell, I am not one of those who extolls the virtues of the carp.

White Bear lake in the creek next to the Ramsey beach. I use to bow fish here once a year when the go into the creek for spawning. It was always the 2nd or 3rd week in June when the water temp get to 68+. With the later spring I bet they are about to move in. I found this spot while biking and there was a guy with a flatbed trailer who had a pile of hundreds! The more you take the merrier smile.gif

      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.
