      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 .

North or South of the 94 Bridge?

Recommended Posts

Guest

Just a poll to see where the readers of this forum normally fish. I have recently started to fish the river and have found South of the 94 bridge productive for walleye and sauger. Have not ventured North of Stillwater but plan to in the next couple of weeks.

Good luck on the River...I fish out of a Crestliner 1600 Fishhawk with a 40 hp and 99% of the time wear a Packer hat. Say hello if you see me.

Live_Bait,

I usually fish from Prescott up to the Afton area. I ice fish around Bayport. Any questions fire away!?

I have had more luck fishing for walleye north of the bridge in the spring. Didn't fish the river as much as I wanted to this summer.

Ice Fishing on the St. Croix? Hmmn.. something I would never do.. after all.. hit a patch of fast moving current where the ice is thin and BAM! Fall through and get sucked under the ice. Not a pleasent thought. I just wonder how many trucks are sitting on the bottom of the St. Croix... I would never trust river ice, unless it was a Resivor or backwaters area; never on the main river.

After you see the shortcut road crossing the river and pull up your auger blade to find you are over 19 inches of ice, it settles you down a little bit, heh... Some years, I'm a little unsure, but when the right winter hits, everything is good.

Rule number 1: When ice fishing, never EVER assume the ice is thick enough. Check, check and check some more...

Do people really drive on the Croix in winter? I fish the Minnesota in the winter and would never dream of even driving a 4 wheeler on the ice!! There are spots where the ice is 24 inches thick and 20 yards away it's open water.

Get 'er done

ozzy,

Yes there are certain areas you can drive but you have to be very carefull!!! Ice is never safe even on lakes. Alot of times your better off walking on the rivers (or 4-wheelers). Makes things a little more on the mind!!

I spend more time out there in the winter than I do the summer. I find the ice out there to be more consistent than most of the local lakes. I was once told that the river ice is actually better because the current sweeps away the air pockets under the ice that normally get trapped on lakes. I agree you need to know where you are going, but I trust it more than lake ice. fro some reason the ice seems to be thicker than the local lakes too. I cannot explain that. Hope to see some of you out there this winter.

      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.
