      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 .

2006 DNR Conservation License Plate Design Contest

Recommended Posts

federline

I just saw this - wouldn't it be nice if we got a FISH design for the third plate design?

http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/contests/license_plate.html

If there are fish artists out there, I'd ask that they consider submitting entries for the contest. so I can change out my deer plate for a fish plate! :-)

Id like to see a walleye one, that would be sweet if they would show like when it comes down to the top ten drawings.

In Mn. its walleyes and thats what I would like to see on Mn. plates. When people come to Mn. to go fishing they want walleye. A Muskie may not be bad though.

Not having the state fish (walleye for those who aren't sure) on the plates would be a travesty.

what would be wrong with a native brookie on a plate? they're a lot more colorful and pretty than a walleye. I think they taste better too tongue.gif

Also, a lot of their habitat is at risk in the SE due to current agricultural practices and development.

Randy, the only crummy thing about this contest is that I can't submit my brookie artwork as an entry since I'm on the ineligible list... frown.gif

I gave it a try and sent one in with the state fish on it...a walleye. Come on, if its a state plate it should have our state fish on it! Had to overnight it to make it there on time.

I think it turned out really well. If I make it into the finals I'll need you fellow FM'er friends to lend some support on the on-line poll.

Here it is. It lookes a lot better in person then from a scan. The left side is cut off a little because it didn't completely fit into my scanner. Tell me what you guys think!

Sorry, I think yours is better than all of those Leech.

Not to offend anyone if they designed one of them......I think they all stink.

Is that a walleye jumping out of the water???

I hope that's not supposed to be a Great Blue Heron, if so, it's the wrong color.

The Moose design is almost identical to the previous deer one.

ok that's enough negativity.

Sorry you didn't make it Leech frown.gif

I agree but since there has been a lot of hype about the timberwolf over the years, I have to admit that is a pretty cool design.

      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.
