      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 .

Trout or crappies?

Recommended Posts

Bigfife

I am getting the itch to wet a line on some open water. I am not very familiar with the area, but I go to school in Marshall. I am just looking for some catch and release crappie or trout action. Any idea where to fish trout in the Redwood would be great. I am hoping to get out Saturday afternoon and Tuesday next week.

Not sure about where to find any trout back there. But, I'd check Lake Benton or Shetek for crappies. Do you still work at PB's? You'd think you could get some decent hot spots working there.

They stock browns every year in Camden State Park just south of Marshall. You might want to call first to see if they've stock them yet or not, don't think too many of them survive from year to year. I did get one crappie and alot of little bluegills about 2 weeks ago at Brawner Lake, also in Camden. I fish Brawner about 5 times a year and that's the first crappie I've ever caugt, so they're not real plentiful. Haven't heard any info about any other lakes yet this year.

Thanks for the info guys. I do still work at Borchs, but it seems like everyone is fishing for bullheads. I haven't heard any fishing reports yet so I thought I would try here. The reason I asked about trout is because the fisheries guy was in here yesterday. I think he said they are releasing trout into the Redwood this week and next. I didn't ask where they dumped them in so I was looking for a place to start. Chirodoc, not real familiar with the park, do you just drive in park and start walking along the river?

I used to fish for trout in ramsey creek just west of redwood. They usually release them under a bridge about 3/4 of a mile off highway 19. Im not sure if they release them there anymore or not. Another place i've caught them before is in ramsey park below the falls in the pool. Its been a few years but those are a few places to go looking around redwood. good luck. post your results if you try it out.

A good place to start in Camden is by the swimming beach. When you pull in, follow the signs. There is a bridge to get to the swimming beach and I've seen them hanging around there before. That's the only decent spot that I know of, so you might want to ask the park ranger for more info. BTW, talked to some people fishing the outlet (or is it inlet?) of Shetek right on Hwy. 59 on Wed. They said the crappies were going good before the rains hit last weekend. Nobody had caught anything that day. Good luck! chirodoc

      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.

      I have not seen a bird during season yet but I will get one or two I hope

      Looks like you got one woodcock and a snipe but I could be wrong but great job shooting.

      This is the insulated model. 8x8. If anyone wants it this week I'll let it go for 240.00. Won't  find a better deal!

      Saw over 10 birds on opener....all before legal shooting hour....Only 1 after before the rain started.

      i went out for a couple hours yesterday looking for grouse.  The buddy i was with never has been hunting for grouse or woodcock.  We only saw 1 grouse with no chance for a shot but got both woodcock that flushed.

      As MB said, high water tends to spread fish out and push them tighter to the banks in any slower water they can find.  A "normal" year with low water in October can be ridiculously, almost unfairly good in the river when you find the smallies. There's a reason it's mandatory catch and release now, as they pile up in deeper, slower water and can be quite vulnerable if/when you find them.   That being said, the difference in high vs. low water is not as pronounced above the dams (either the 10th St, Sartell, Little Falls, Blanchard, etc.) as it is below them.  At least in my experience, anyways.
