      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 .

Due to the cold weather, I am postponing taking the kids up to the shack this weekend, so it is just going to be Fiskyknut and I. If anyone wants to join us, I have room for two or three more. Post an email or phone # here, and I'll get in touch.

Walleye,

If I wasn't 7 hrs away and hadn't promised the kids pizza and movies tonight I'd be a serious threat grin.gif

Even so, my hats off to the forum and the FM Family that make posts like Walleyejohn's possible!

Good luck!

Well Yankee, I've had the pleasure of meeting quite a few FMer's, and have no problem offering an opportunity to fish, and trade lies. As far as being any type of threat, all I can say is I can catch burbot with the best of them, so bring your A-game.

Walleyejon - I'm with 'ya - those pout have to be about the homeliest creatures the good Lord has put in water!

Hope we've on the same page, the threat wasn't toward you - it's likely a Southern term that means the same as "a possibility".

Good luck and stay warm!

Jon,

I'm back and forth to Baudette all weekend for Hockey, with downtime here and there.

If I can swing out there, would you guys prefer a "hot one", or a "cold one"?

If I wasn't just up there last weekend I'd be all over this opportunity. It's killin' me! Sounds like a great time and a chance to meet some new folks.

Wrong weekend for me too. I think I met you earlier this year at the Streiff Tournament. Were you the one looking for a partner? I'll be up next weekend if you guys want to get together and wet a line. I'm not sure which days it will be yet since we're actually going to be staying down at Red. I should be there by Thursday. It would be nice to get together again if anyones available.

widetrack- I'm guessing you've been out to the shack with Fisky? I'll have some beers out there, so a "hot one" would hit the spot.

gspman- Next time you're up, let us know. Or maybe you, widetrack, and me can meet in Osakis and catch a thousand fish. Apparently there is no limit over there--sorry couldn't resist.

yellowsub--I posted on here looking for a partner, and did fish the tournament, to be honest, I met so many people that weekend, I couldn't put a name to a face if you paid me. Keep us posted on your upcoming plans, I'm sure we can work something out.

I'll see how the day goes tomorrow... If I can slip away I sure will...

I have a vague idea where your shack is, but no, I haven't been there.

I knew that Osakis thing was going to make it over here. I'm done with that one. I've got better things to waste my energy on. If I can swing another trip up I'll try and make contact. Thanks for the offer.

Curt,

While you're curled up on the couch like a little girl, you should think about some plans for a March get together on the ice.

Hope you're feeling better.

      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.
