      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 .

Dunno how the bite is, but I saw a lot of houses from the north side where people are driving right past the "no driving in ditches" sign, LOL.

That's not funny. I made it out there last year and did the same thing everyone else was doing, driving down in the ditch and accessing the lake, right past the signs. We didn't stay out to long and a guy in slacks, white collar shirt, leather jacket, and cigarette stopped us. He seemed real shady and asked us for our license. We asked him what for? He said he was an undercover cop. He flashed us his badge and he did have a gun on his hip. He took down our info and told us to never access the lake through the ditch again. He was preaching on how the landowners around the lake were all upset and blah blah blah. I respect that but I don't consider that to be a private lake so don't try to make it out to be. This guy was a legend in his own mind. What a character! Probably will never go there again.

I personally think they need to just put a decent landing in on North Turtle. That ditch is the same way everyone I know that fishes that lake goes out there. The lake is plenty large for a landing and the fishing there can be great at times. Isen't just putting a landing in easier and less of a hassel for locals. Or are they just mad that people are fishing "THEIR" lake? That is understandable to I guess but we have to remember what our moms tought us, Sharing.

There are a couple kosher ways to get on that lake, but not legally via a truck unless you have permission to go through private land. It would involve a snomobile or a quad and a portable fish house.

I did not mean to indicate that I think that method of access on the north side is funny. In fact, I find it quite sad. My LOL was intended to be sarcastic in nature.

One problem is that the high water levels have made the water butt right up against the right of way. Navigable water that touches a public right of way is legal access. The no driving in ditch signs seem to be largely ignored. No driving what? Cars, trucks? That I understand and agree with. A road ditch is a legal path for snomobiles and quads at certain times of the year, however. As a matter of fact, the OCTA sled trail runs right along that very road.

I personally won't access the lake at that point because I understand the intent of those signs. There are plenty of other lakes for me to fish.

It seems to me, however, that the signs appear to be un-enforceable due to the volume of fishouses and street vehicle traffic through there.

Jigging Bob is correct that a public access would solve the problem, but until there is a willing seller, that will not happen.

Hey bklimek, That sounds a little iffy to me too, i doubt there would be some undercover officer out there just doing that. Sounds like something someone would do to give a little scare and try to spread the word about it like you just did. Who knows. That "driving in ditch" is iffy too, technically there is no ditch there, it's just more of a shoulder now.
I talked to a DNR officer a few years ago out there and he said anyone can be out there as long as they take an ATV, Snowmobile or walk out there, they just leagally are not suppose to drive a car or truck out there, yet people still do. Like someone said before, it's hard to enforce, but hopefully someone will figure out something so everyone can be happy.

      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.

      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.
