      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 .

Sucka sucked it up tonight!

Well, I guess we all have to have these days once in a while, but not all of us post about that's for sure. I don't know why I am reporting this, perhaps it's a sympathy plea. I caught one sheephead in about 5 hours of fishing. I'm not saying I didn't miss a couple here and there, but ouch!

I worked the Hudson bridge and missed a few; I worked the sand bars by the NSP plant and missed a few. I went to one of my best spots north of Stillwater before pulling out the boat and nothing!

I know, nobody feels bad for me, that's ok. By the reports I would have to suggest that you stick to mornings for walleyes and lower St.Croix seems to be having better luck. No excuses here, I really stunk tonight! Sorry that I can't bring good news this time.

Derek,

We all have our "bad" days. smile.gif Some more than others, me more than most grin.gif

Thanks for your post and I want to say Congrats to our newest Field Staff Member. I'm really looking forward to meeting you in the near future and I hope that at some time we can wet a line together.

Sucka, I feel your pain man. When I look at all the time and money I've spent, energy I have expended,tackle purchased, and knowledge gleaned. I would like to think that I could catch any fish, anytime, anywhere. But alas I have come to the harsh reality that it is still called fishing and not catching! PS Think how good it will feel when it quits hurting.

Sucka,

Hey don't feel bad the bite has been Hot and Cold! I always try to report as such and not just start spouting off when catching big fish! So thanks, we all appreciate it.

This has been an odd year, last haldf of summer, for sure. The phrase "you should have been here yesterday," is fairly common where guys are stratching the head after slamming fish the day before. If you time it right the Croix could be coonsidered dead or Hott!

It really is tempermental just like a lake this year. The only advice that I can muster is work the fastest current you can find in an area, at least try it, it can really pay off, but that's why it's called fishing.

Keep Catchin'

I will agree with Turk it was a goofy summer with the big rains! Hammer them one day and struggle the next two to three days.You really had to key on the low-light periods with the hot summer to be somewhat productive!! The end of Sept into October should get very good. Should be more consistent anyways. The fish know winter is coming and they will have one thing on their mind and that is eating!!

Keep reporting and good luck.

Ya it happened to me this mornin' too. Four trips to the Croix in the last three weeks yielded 2 wally or sauger to bring home each time along with plenty of smaller ones to throw back. Also sunnies, crappies, smallmouth,sheepers, rockies, silvers and channel cats mixed in.

So this morning I got the chance to take my wife fishing. She got a sheep and rocky; I got one puny C-cat. I was looking forward to seeing her have lots of fun with the stizostedions. Oh well if 4 out of 5 trips to any body of water were as good as the Croix has been for the last month, I'd have to fish MORE THAN 100 times a year.

      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.
