      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 .

Predict a good bite

Recommended Posts

Turk

Fishing is fishing gang but I predict a good bite this week when it warms up a bit. Why not sure, just a hunch...maybe a last hooraw type of thing, besides it's a great time to get a big walleye, Get the net! I'd either troll cranks or vert. jig minows, blade baits or plastics in deep water around 26-30 feet.

Turk - I agree.. They were snapping pretty well on Sunday. It was a saugerfest with a couple decent eye's thrown in. Have you noticed the sauger to walleye ratio going up as winter nears? What are your thoughts on the sauger feedbag vs the eye's in the late fall?

Dude my friend!

I tell you what looking back in my notes this Fall is setting up like last years with good sauger action and so-so walleye action.

The water temperature is 42 near Hudson and slowly warmer as you head south to Prescott. That is water temperature on the surface the temp was from 2-3 feet cooler near the bottoms.

I've heard Prescott has been good but I know Bayport was as well, so I'm not sold on a pure water temperature answer.

The Fall bite can be hot and then dead, and I'm sorry to say I don't think it got on fire this season, sure we had limits and lots of walleye but not on fire! Don't get me wrong I'm thankfull...

Dude you know how tough St. Croix walleye can be through the ice. Last season was unusual and good for walleye, with lots of anglers talking about walleye but usually it's tough, maybe the late Fall is a pre ice period?

I will say that the transition zone (hard to soft bottom)is very important for this time of year and many late Falls have been fruitfull because of it.

Dude - I can't wait to hit the ice with you again, Tell your Brother Dr. "D" Dave Hale that I want a walleye rematch!!!

Keep catchin'

I haven't been out as much this year as past years but it seems like the eye's aren't as catchable as previous years. I don't know if it's me loosing my grip, a year class cycle, shad bloom, eye's moving to the miss. or what - but my boat didn't see as many as previous years.

My gut and electronics are telling me there might be suspended bite going on but I haven't had enough time to experiment. Have you worked a suspended bite at all?

I agree the transition zones seem to be where there hanging out right now - downfall is the little guys are finished when the get in the boat.

Let's hit it this winter again! As for the rematch - you should do a best two out of three trips. My bro (satch) is the best jigger I know but that doesn't mean there isn't someone better.

      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.
