      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 .

New to the game

I started hunting ducks again for the last couple yrs since the late 80's early 90's and am truly addicted. I purchased a early goose permit last year and never used it, due to not having any goose decoys. Well, I'm pretty well set up for ducks now so I suppose it's time to start with the geese. Gotta spend the money on something right? Anyways, I picked up a dozen shells yesterday at Cabela's and a 4 pack of floating dekes today at Fleet Farm. With this new dent in my pocket I'm going out tonight. I think for short notice I'll try the river outside of the metro goose area...probably wont see much but its worth a shot. Nobody else I know hunts geese so its a solo thing and tips would be appreciated...I've been lurking and reading through the posts already...it's awesome. Great info guys. I'll just throw this out there too..cant hurt...if there are any other solo hunters that would like to get together shoot me an email..or if someone has an opening for a rookie gooser, I'm you huckleberry. Shot my first goose last year hunting ducks..it was awesome and after using a recipe from this site...they tast awesome too!! Cant wait to get more...so wish me luck I'm off. I'll check my email tonight before I hit the hay, hope to hear from some fellow addicts, if not good luck to all this weekend!!

Well, that was a quick, "hunt", got to the landing and could not get the motor going. Tried for a loooooooooooong time. I just used it last month and it ran and started fine...guess i get to work on that this weekend. Didn't see any geese using the river anyways, did see some fly over however. Maybe things will work out better on the morrow.

Well, went to go see what was wrong with the motor on Sat. pulled the plugs out and checked for spark..good..put them back in. Gave it a few pumps, three pulls...and she roared back to life...would'nt you know it. Oh well, least its working again..for now. Went out today on the Minnesota river down my LeSeur, didn't get out till noonish..stayed till six...didn't see a thing not even on the very long boat ride back..oh well. FYI for anyone planning on this trip...the river is extremely low, excersise extreme caution. I had to pull the boat through a couple places. I need to find some fields to hunt. I really like my new deks at least they look good. Four eliminator dekes and a dozen Green Head somethin or other shells with motion stakes..very real looking. Now if I could just show them to some real geese! It was nice to be out in this nice waterfowling weather!! I love it!

      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

      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.
