      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 .

      Has anyone successfully fished for Burbot/eelpout on the lower St. Croix? Based on the DNR fish survey reports it looks like my best bet would be by the Kinni narrows. The numbers there look good.
      My current plan is to try perpendicular to the sand bar on the north end stagnant water where it drops from 5 to 40 ft depth. I'll drill a set of holes starting in the deep and ending just short of the sandbar shallows. Then I'll progressively fish from deeper to shallower water as sunset approaches finishing up in 10-15 ft of water. I've got a couple poles rigged with glow buckshot rattle spoons and I'll buy some fatheads in Prescott to put on the trebles.
      If anyone has a better location on the Croix or reasons why this is a fools errand I'm all ears.

      We I just rolled into the Cass Lake area right at prime time.  So I quickly drilled a few holes until I marked a few fish and set up.  Man the wind is howling!   Any rate the bite is slow but steady and I've landed several 12" crappies like this one.

      Then a bit later stuck a thick slab just shy of 15".  Here's a pics of him heading back.
      Caught fish on a gently sloping flat about 24 fow.  Got fish on both minnows and plastics.
      I'm here for a few more days so hopefully will have a few more to add.

      So my family is doing a big reunion for like a week at a resort on Moose lake (the one just NE of Cass). My uncle from Hawaii is coming, and he's a fishing nut, so I was hoping to get him on some LM bass while he's here. Does anyone have some suggestions for where to catch em on Moose or surrounding lakes? 
      I'd like to do some top water frogging over Lilly pads so he can see how fun it is, but I'm sure he'd be happy catching em any way we can. 
      Anything helps.

      Fishing in the Bemidji area has taken a bit of a hit, and anglers have to work a little harder for their walleyes than they did a week or two ago. The jig bite is a thing of the past, and people rigging crawlers or leeches on the breaklines are starting to out-produce the guys fishing with jigs in shallow. Bottom bouncers and spinners with a crawler is also working very well on outside weed edges and off the breaks. The crankbait bite remains good over the sand and cabbage, as well as around mid-lake rocks and rubble. Salmo Hornets in 6-11' of water going 2.4 mph has been working well for us.
      Bass are hot right now, with smallmouth on the ledges waiting to ambush their next meal, and largemouth in the deep vegetation soaking in the 77 degree water temps.
      Panfish anglers should all rejoice, as July is the month of the plate-sized bluegill and the mid-summer slab crappie. Look for deep cabbage, and work it over with safety pin spinners or a bobber and wax worm. Mid-lake structure with cabbage is the best this time of year.
      Musky anglers are reporting a hot bite right now, with people seeing or catching fish on most every trip. Many of our walleye clients have lost baits or even fish due to muskies being overly aggressive. I'd venture to guess that now is the time for the musky hunters to smile.
      Plenty of fish to be had before summer is over! Give us a call!

      I heard that crawlers on rigs with a small spinner or a slow death hook is working real good pulled through the cabbage weeds.  Anybody doing anything out there?

      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.
