      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 .

Anybody from Roch interested in heading out tonight? I'll be fishing smallies in an area not far from Rochester. I'd like to leave around 7ish and fish till dark.

I've got an extra pair of waders if your lacking...

Shoot me an email or reply before 6:00pm

Won't be able to make it tonight. Gotta try to catch a few farmers to get permission for goose hunting. Have you been to SD lately? My last fishing trip of open water will be out there Sept 23rd weekend. Good luck tonight.

Nate Larson and I spend the shorter part of an hour and a half on the ZR in Oxbow Park last night. The rumors I've heard are true. Lots of smaller fish, but the larger ones are harder to find. I did get myself a pair that went a little better than my shoe size, but that's about it for size.

I had the best luck on a Mr. Twister peppered pumpkin color in the 3" size with a 1/8 oz THO blue jig. We had our best luck in deeper water and rapids, but rocks were key in both scenarios.

I'm thinking I'll throw a crawdad plastic in the mix on my next outing to oxbow.

We’ve got a rematch planned this Thursday. Wanna?

I gave Nate a couple of pointers today on where to fish at Oxbow. They are not plentiful, but I have caught smallies in the 17 to 19 inch range. Lots of fun on light gear.

Hey Lew,

Thans again for the pointers. I will let you know how I do! You will have to give me a full report of your fishing trip as well.

Well we only got on the water for a few casts tonight before the storms blew us off. I wanted to try a craw plastic, so I opted for the Berkley Power Bait crawdad brown with orange pinchers. I only got 1 fish on it, but it was the biggest of the evening. Nate caught a couple rock bass and some dink smallies. He was using a Mr. Twister 3" black/silver with a pink 1/8 oz jig head. We prob only fished for about 30 minutes... if that...

Not a trophy, but I don't make it out smallie fishing much so I thought I'd better snap a photo.

More Oxbow Park fishing to come this weekend.

I am glad we got out of there when we did! Talk about some crazy weather. I am guessing that the streams will go up significantly with this rain. Make sure to post some more pics after this weekend.

It would have been nearly imposible to fish Oxbow with kids this weekend. Water was high, brown, and sizzling fast.

That's kind of what I figured. Thanks for the update. I hope that everyone had a good time nonetheless. Hopefully the water goes back down soon!

      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.
