      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 .

Well, if the other fish you're fishing for aren't biting, go for smallies!
I caught 7 in less than an hour at dusk. I used up all my leeches and switched to night crawlers and was still catching them. I missed a few obviously. 2 sauger. Released all fish. Had a blast. Just had to post and talk about good fishing on the river.
Anyone been hooking any big cats? Haven't caught too many yet this year. A few with the biggest around 21 lbs. I've never fished for them below Hudson. Can someone give me some ideas to try. I guess catfish bar would be a start eh? heh....

Where did you fish for those smallies? I would love to get into some of those smallies that you were talking about. The largest smallie I caught this year is a 20" smallie caught on tube.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

from all reports I've read, the smallie fishing is really starting to pick up from Prescott all the way to Hudson area. I'll be out chasin' them this weekend.

Yeah a little bit north of hudson by where the **** is on the Wisconsin side. I think that might still be Hudson. North of the swing bridge about 1/4 mile or so. Along the shore has been good.

SteveO,

How are you friend? I would guess that spot would be north of the dam, since south of it is that shallow shallow water and it's all sand, but I may be wrong...

I think I may switch gears too, the walleye have been just plain hard to catch, and I'm, a stubborn fool that won't quit trying!!!!

The saug dogs from 13 -15" are hitting well but that gets old quick....

Once the bait fish is the primary forage, I know those walleye roam and suspend looking for the shad... I've been working suspended schools on the sonar with little luck.

I have caught some eyes shallow in choice areas but once those are run through a few times it's all dried up.

Anywho that's it! Good luck on the bite, and I wish you tag a dandy!!!

Keep catchin'
Turk

The Walleyes and Smallmouth where starting to pick up last week until the big rains saturday night. Then it shut down for me anyway down Prescott way. It would be nice to get the water near normal for a couple of weeks anyways!!!!

thanks for the tip. what got edited on your last post?
I live in Hudson and haven't fished that area seriously. Is it north or south of the Mallieleau dam?

Turk, oh master of piggy walleyes and bad judge of NFL football teams, I'm doing just fine.
My arms are starting to get back in shape after exhausting them on my annual smallie float down the Flambeau. Haven't been on the 'Croix lately. Been popping the LM's pretty good on Mallieleau. Getting better with launching/loading the Crestliner by myself.
Gonna chase them around a little this weekend. Thanks for the tips on location and general repo.
I'm kinda spoiled after our last trip together. I'm just not going to be happy unless I put another 26" 'eye in the boat on every trip lol!
heading out with Poi on the 22nd. Still trying to find that 'lunge that will go on the wall.
Take care and Go Pack!!!

Where it goes from rocks to sand north of the dam. The spot by the pennisula where it goes from rocks to sand I like too.

Hey Turk have you ever pulled a clublike sauger out of the Croix? I know there are giants in the missisippi, but I've never pulled a true trophy Sauger out of the St.Croix before. My biggest was earlier this year under the Hudson bridge.

      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.
