      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 .

How has the fishing been lately on the big lake. Haven't been up there in several weeks and am planning on heading up Friday late afternoon. Spent the previous week up by Otter Tail and the fishing there was real tough. Eventually I was able to catch fish in 5' of water, running cranks, in the middle of a 90 degree day. Apparently the oxygen level in those lakes is real low because of the lack of rain. Has anyone found that to be the case on Mille Lacs?

Fishing was slow for me last weekend. I guess I should say non-existent. Did not catch any walleyes. But I was fishing with three others that do not fish regularly so that could have something to do with it. On a side not the water temps are extremely warm. 77 degrees. Saw thousands of dead whitefish/ciscoes floating all over the lake. I think things maybe slow until mid september.

To all walleye guys.... Remember when you are trolling in the fall and those "annoying" muskies keep biting off your rapala's? Sometimes musky fisherman run into the same problem of those "annoying" walleyes eating your musky lures... Think like a musky fisherman and move shallow to oxygen, you may find these walleyes that keep eating my musky lures...

Hey MLMusky, I love to fish fall walleyes at ML. If you let me in on a few spots where those pesky walleyes keep bothering you now, I'll give you some spots for some great fall action.

I went out Saturday around 1:00 out of East side and trolled cranks. Picked up three (25, 26, 26)in three hours, before my motor warning beeper started going off in five footers. There is nothing like being 3 miles from where you put in, no other boats in sight, no cell signal, stiff wind, your trolling motor quits working in 10 minutes, and you have to decide if you want to risk wrecking your new motor. I headed for shore with the warning beeper screaming at me, only to have it stop about 150 yards from shore and not go off again. I went home.

I caught my fish 15' down in 21 to 25 ft of water, relating to structure. I marked a lot of fish, but very few that weren't suspended. I wish I had some other people with me so I could have put more lines back there as the fish were scattered from 10' down to 20' down, with a majority in the 15' to 18' range.

Fished rocks Sat 8:00-2:00 caught 15 total, 12 over 15" 5 keepers(4@15-17 & 1@21)26" biggest. It looked like some moron cut the skin off of one cheek of the 26"

Fished the weeds sat. Didn't find many eyes only 3 but did get into some good pike action and my buddie got a huge 17 inch crappie, thought it was a 2 pound eye coming across the top of the water. Stopped and tried to coax a few more but no luck. The lighning put a damper on any night bite i was the last guy at the access at 9:30.

      any luck there? i've never had luck. hoping to break my unlucky streak soon.
    • HugeHogChaser
      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.

      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!
