      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 .

ICE FISHING - OTTERTAIL -PERHAM

Recommended Posts

BRUNO

Probably going to be bound to my desk until the freeze. Might have to think ICE. Since the wife has a sister in Perham might use the excuse to visit and disappear to "shack up" with my brother-in-law.

Any rentals etc?

Right off the top of my head the only place that I can think of that rents or used to rent was Pair a dice resort on big pine. Which is a great winter lake , eyes in the morning and evening everything else during the day! Will keep my eyes peeled for anyplace else that might suit your needs!! Paul

So far Pair a Dice is the only resort I,ve found that rents fishhouses. You can call Mike and Laurie Gooler at 1-888-ONE-PAIR . They should be able to set you up.....

Works for me!! I seem to eat more fish in the winter than I do in the summer. Got to work harder for them so a little reward for a hard days effort is justifyable heheheh.. Keep me updated on whats going on !!!! Paul

Hi paul,

Well she popped the question this morning. (Really more of a statement.)

WE ARE GOING TO PERHAM FOR THANKSGIVING!

I would lie and since that the first thought in my head was "Of course dear anything you want dear.." But then I thought WHEN DO YOU TYPICALLY GET GOOD ICE ON BIG PINE?

I can see my self saying I'll pop this turkey in and be back in a few hours!

The past couple years it seems we've been boat fishing till a couple weeks before xmas. Funny feeling thats not going to happen three times in a row tho. It all depends on the weather. Early to mid december is kinda the norm for walk out ice on the small lakes. I see cross point resort on lake lida has fishhouses to rent also! Just a thought.

Hi Paul,

The better half and commander in charge has changed her mind. (A historical first.) She wants to wait to go to Perham until December. EGADS there might be enough ice to support my "manly" figure by then. Been unseasonalby warm in MPLS. Been mowing in my speedo! (Neighbors are oddly staying inside.) Do you guys usually get ice by mid December? HAs it been as warm?

What do you do in winter?

It is a womans perogitave to do that!
My neighbors all go inside when I mow too..
If this weather we have right now holds and the temp drops we will have ice in december. Only time will tell for sure. Could be two weeks , could be a month or more. Right now Im currently working as a welder/boilermaker but looking seriously for a job that has more flexible hours or part time for the summer and winter so I can spend more time with clients. So Im pretty open there. Guys gotta eat though.

Guys,

At 6 ft , 250 lbs it only takes the threat of such attire to have Mama point my son "Sport" to the mower and say "Go save the neighborhood and our reputation"

Personally I like big pine , but little pine and ottertail are good also. Unless we get some freakish warm weather this will be my last weekend on open water. I need to get things put away and bring stuff out so Im ready for the first ice... I can hear the augers already! Water temps right now are in the low 40's so its not far off! Paul

Simply "Too Costly" fishing

Got an email this afternoon from "simply Fishing" inviting me to spend $1,595 plus $600 airfare to go fishing with "Bob" on Lake El-Sato in Mexico for bass.

Excuse me dear but I just blew Sports tuition for next year on a worthy cause, Me and Bob!

At least fishing Big Pine I can afford my own beer. That's why I support forums like this. Heck for $2200 bucks Paul probably would let you drive his boat!

Thanks Bruno! I needed a good laugh today! I got a gut ache! lololol I'm waaaayy under his price. If a guy was a basser it might not be a bad trip but I wouldnt blow sports tuition on it myself..My wife just got back from mexico and said I would have been bored out of my mind. For $2200 all you would have to do is reel fish up for 6 days. I'll take care of the rest. I'm getting set up to do some ice fishing trips this year, should be interesting!!! Paul

Sitting here looking out on Lake Lizzie as I read this thread. I imagine there will be houses out on Prairie Lake near Pelican Rapids in a week. The lake is frozen over, but I wouldn't venture out yet. Big Detroit was about 75% ice-covered yesterday. Can't wait for that first ice!

Try Leonards resort, they have a couple of house to rent, it just got sold but i know a couple of houses stayed. Plus they do have aq couple of cabins for rent in the winter, and I think a sleeper fish house. Leonards is on Big Pine. On the NW side of lake.

Thinking I may make it up there sometime in late January or February. Place I'm working for got sold and they are moving it out of town. They are going to take "care" of me but I may have some free time coming up. You know why the heck can't they do things like this say a week before the opener? "Honey I'm so depressed I need to be alone for awhile! Now don't get mad if a little beer, minnows and a buddy or two want to console and bond with me. The boat is behind the truck because it is good therapy. Ya know it will do me good!"

My luck she will say well now you have time to finish the bathroom and remodel the kitchen.. Funny how them fishin buddies can hold a rod for ten to twelve hours but a hammer?

Keep us posted on the fishing Paul!

Hey BWE,

Let us in on the "big plan" for Beers Lake! It doesn't have anything to do with pullin' 'lunges through the ice, does it?

      any luck there? i've never had luck. hoping to break my unlucky streak soon.
    • HugeHogChaser
      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.
