      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 .

I was fishing the front flats and in the process of landing one of many Walleye I managed to drop the business end of my landing net in the lake. I have the collapsible/removable handle type. If anyone reading this post happens to catch my net please respond to my post. I don't really care about the net but I hate polluting the lake. Thanks.

Keep your hook sharp, Tommy Tadpole

Tommy and Auto, Welcome to Fishing MN! With that said I was fortuneate enough a couple of years ago to bring in two nice anchors in the same weekend in the same Bay! Its amazing how strong that fireline is!!! So, its deffinately not out of the question for someone to land your net! Better luck in the future!

Sorry about your net , but on a happier note , two years ago on the Big V, I landed a G-Loomis rod with a nice Diawa reel attached . Took it home and with a little cleaning it looks and works like new . Now I suppose I'll get all kind of notes claiming this nice combo , but NO WAY I am going to keep it ----Bud

Bud,

Where on Vermilion did you pull the rod and reel up at?

A fellow Guide lost a combo like that a year or so ago.

Not that he would expect to get it back! grin.gif

Back in late June I was rigging for walleyes on the flat by First and Second islands and landed a pair of ladies undies. Didn't dare bring them back to the dock for the wife to see!

Earlier this month we pulled a Berkley Bionix with Daiwa baitcaster out of the lake in Wake Em Up Narrows. Cleaned er up and everythings seems to work fine. Not had a chance to use it yet but....

Cliff , I dragged the rod combo up in Norwegian Bay on the east side kind of in the mid point . Thought the fish didn't fight much , and then oh crap , here is a bunch of line . So I thought might as well haul this stuff out of the lake and here on the end of the line was this really nice rod . The bail was bent on the reel , but I fixed that and now this is one of my favorite rods . I MIGHT consider giving it back to the rightful owner but they would have to tell me EXACTLY where it was lost, as like EXACTLY where in Norwegian bay . The spot I posted is vague . ---Bud

That reminds me of the 2 guys that start their day ice fishing, and the one strips down and puts on some women's panty-hose. The other guy said what's that all about? So the guy said that he wears them to keep warm and wick moisture away. It also helps keep the legs tight as he has an active day on the ice and his legs feel less tired after the day's activities. The other guy then asks "how long have you been doing this??" The panty-hose guy says "ever since my wife found a pair of panty-hose behind my truck seat..." wink.gifwink.gifwink.gif

My age was in single digits the first time that we stayed with Mel, Violet, and Virginia Drew at the Namakan Narrows Lodge. I think that was in 1960. My father first stayed their in the late fortys, when Mel's dad was there. The last time I was there I was 15, in August 1968. I still have dreams about it.

I have photos of Mel and Violet, Duane, Sally and Mrs. Larue and Professor Savodny and his ex. I have photos of the sturgeon that Tora[?] gave us when we watched her and Alan haul in nets one morning. I also have copies of several lodge brochures. I will be happy to link you to them if you are interested.

I remember Floyd. He had to maintain a tent as his "residence" on the Canadian side.

I do not remeber who Wally was. I remember Tom. I remember the guy who Mel fired in 1965[?], but not his name. I remember Kathy Pachonik.

      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.
