      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 .

Before the weather gets nice and we all stop using the ice fishing forum until next year I thought I would just say how much fun it's been on here with all you guys this year.It was great to meet and fish with several of you.All serious fisherman.I really like the tips I've picked up on here and out on the ice.The river was much better this season than last season.I gave up on it last year and fished other places but this year it was really fun.It's not over yet! Good Luck Fishing!!!

Hey Guys,
I also have to say that it was great meeting everybody. I'm only disappionted at myself, that I never knew how great the river can be in the winter. As you can see I'm not on the river yet, maybe later this evening. I had to spend this morning plowing. But with the icefishing season coming to an end, that only means that the open water season is just begining. Don't forget Sinker you will always have a spot on my boat this summer, TRZ and Chris your also welcome.

Good luck

Mr. Special, that would be great to fish the river in the boat.Like I said,I've lived in this area all my life and practically lived down at the river as a kid in the summer, but haven't been out on it in a boat very much.I have a small fishing boat that I leave at the camper up north but after talking to you guys I might bring it down and fish in the general area that we ice fish in until the pleasure boats take over.Talk to you later.

Sinker - nothing wrong with a small boat on the St Croix. Stick in the many "no-wake" areas and there are lots of fish to be had - - also north of Stillwater can be lots of fun.

Sturgeon46, sounds good.It's an old 14 foot aluminum that I bought from my wife's grandfather but it's solid.The lake it's on is real small and I have an old 5 hp that does ok but I would like to get a little bigger and newer motor for it.I think I'll bring it down this spring.I know as a kid I caught alot of big walleyes right from shore in the spring on the river.Take it easy.

How did everyone do this weekend. I never made it out Saturday. By the time I got done plowing, blowing and shoveling, it was 5pm and I my back was killing me. Then Sunday came alone and it was just plain cold. Hope everyone else did better than me.

Good luck


Softwater here we come

      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

      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.
