      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 .

Labby -

Did you smack 'em Saturday in that location you were spying on? We did well on Friday, but the weekend was kind of slow, surprisingly. Oronoco was decent on Sunday, with lots of mallards in the mix.

Seems that the hammer fest is back on in our 55th St field. Ran two groups through yesterday and shot a total of 47!

Maybe we can hook-up this weekend if Mike rolls into town??

Schnieds, Lab
I am now thinking of rolling into town on the 5 a.m. happy flight. I have to talk the the warden to see if she would want to make the night drive. At least that way I could hunt in the morning. If not I will be around about noon on Thursday. My blind and dekes should be arriving in the area any time now, via my sister.
Just let me know what you want to hunt, I have no objection to hunting pheasants or geese. I do have a pheasant hunt planned for friday with Joni's dad. Anyone's welcome. I am going to call all the land owners tonight.
Other wise I am open for the rest of the weekend!

Mike -

Call me on my cell phone whenever you get into town. I am not planning on any hunting Thursday morning, but will probably go after some ditch chickens tomorrow afternoon. Friday morning I will probably be guiding, but may have room if you are interested in jumping in. Lab is welcome too. The rest of the weekend is uncharted, so lets hook-up!!!

Never got back to the computer after Wednesday. My last 2 outings have sucked to say the least. No geese killed. Friday I had a good field wrong location. Birds around us are very shy and extermely difficult to fool as of late. We need some snow. Lots of birds around but they seem to be hitting the fields that are leased. I dont know why the guys who have it leased are not out hunting. I talked to Dean on thursday. Sounds as if it has been a slaughter on the 55th st fields. I am looking to get up there but I think I will wait until the late season. Let me know if you have anything going this week. Pimp sorry our schedules didnt mess better this weekend. The wife really screwed mine up with the run to Wisconsin on saturday.

Yes, it has been a slaughter on 55th street. If I told you how many we've been shooting out there, you'd probably call me a liar!

We had good luck this past Friday and Saturday. Then with the mild temps on Sun, things slowed down quite a bit. I took a break and went back out Sun afternoon (better than watching the Vi Queens). There was massive movement during the last hour, the skies were black with geese in just about every direction. We got one flock into the decoys, shot 'em up, and decoyed one other single.

I know what you're saying about shy birds. It's probably going to take some weather to change that. One of our guides used only super mags Friday, probably 6 - 8 dozen, and really smoked the birds in an otherwise quiet field.

If you can get out with Dean this week, I would highly recommend it. I know he's pretty slow with clients until Friday. If we get some weather, the late season is going to be a freenzy.

Good luck!

Thanks G eye
I will call him today. The kid is really wanting to get up there again. This work thing really is getting old. ha ha Been real busy lately plus I am heading to LOTW to pound the early ice eyes next Thursday.

Duckblaster the pup is doing real well. I had to lay off him this season but I did get him out a few times. Did real well. I got some meds over the internet in Mexico. 2.25 a pill. Way better than $9 a pill. I have a buddy going to Mexico this week and he is going to pick up another 150 pills for me. I am planning on going the full 6 months of treatment to whip this thing. He has put his weight back on and is no worse for the wear. Thanks for your help

Flip how is the Roch hunting going this week?

If there is any indication how the hunting has been. This is the first time I have looked at the computor in a couple of weeks. Shot my birds everyday and helped a few of the guys with sailors. Tons of birds everyday. I think a guy can get spoiled real quick over there. Met some real good people and am greatful for the oppertunity to hunt with them. Tons of birds in town now and should be a good week here too!

Sounds like it was a good week for ya. I am heading up to LOTW on Thursday so I think I am done with the local geese. I am going to make at least 1 trip to Roch before it is all over. So many things to do so little time!

      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.

      I will check it out a little latter. It looks like a good idea. I do a small diamond wrap on a lot of my ice rods.

      I'm gonna go but not before some of these crops get harvested.  It may not be until Thanksgiving but at least I'll increase my odds if I wait for a better chance of success.
