      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 .

I fished there Saturday with Sucka and again on Monday with my brother in law. The walleyes and sauger were hitting in 23 to 28 feet of water on jig and minnow on edges of the bars. If you launch at St Croix bluffs you know where there is such a spot. That's where we caught most of them. The bite was good from 7 to 10 am then slowed and was nonexistent by noon. Don't know about the evening bite, we went home by 2pm both days. I'll be there again tomorrow morning at 6:30 in a blue Sylvan Backtroller; if you see us, swing by and say hi.

All in all labor day was a great weekend. Boated multiple walleye and sauger, a few sheephead, a rock bass, a small mouth bass, a nice sunny, a FAT 12" crappie, and 3 channel cats.

Choper,

There a few muskies to be raised up from the depth north of Stillwater (i.e. north of Osceola). Depending on the water levels, it makes a difference on their whereabouts. I wouldn't necessarily call it a great muskie fishery yet....

Will be fishing it for muskies later this month hopefully. Hope to get you some more detailed information.

Gem Eye guy,

Your account of when the fish bit, was right on for the way this year has shaped up, especially in the last two months! Unless you've got rain, wind, or overcast it's been tough near the noon time hour - Usually though, as most of you know, that's prime time!!! The water has been up three feet from normal all summer long, so that is what I feebily attribute it to...anyway gang, If I may, my advice until the water gets in the low 60's is pick lowlight times or classic walleye chop scenarios for success...
I can't wait for coldwater vertical jigging on the sippi....

Keep cathcin'

Chopper,

Welcome.

If you are willing to travel to St. Croix Falls to fish the St.Croix, I can tell you there is a fairly good population of muskies on that stretch. I've caught a good number of them bass fishing. And, every single one of them (big and small) has come off a tree hanging in the water. So, I imagine traditional musky presentations would be challenging (unless you're good at flipping a Suick). I suppose jig-n-pig or a jig-n-lizard (proceeded by a handwrapped leader) would be a good way to go.

It's worth trying. I've caught and seen quite a few fish.

      Those are some nice looking river walleyes!

      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.
