      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 this morning, fished crankbaits, zero fish. Whiched to spinners pick-up a couple small walleyes. Saw thing feeding up in the shallows inside the weeds. Thought it maybe bass feeding, using jig-n-minnow cast up shallow, started catching small walleyes 8-10 inches. The was only 3-4 ft. I caught about 10-15 little peanuts some right under the boat. Then i caught a couple 16-18 inchers what surprize. Walleyes that size under boat, the is very cloudy, 1 came in 3ft of water. When launching boat on northwest ramp which out locator claimed only 1ft deep. Chowed the prop

Hey Jimmy, must be nice to fish all the time, are you getting any good at it grin.gifgrin.gif The word is the big crappies or bitting on green lake, least thats what the brothers say. Have you been out on sugar lately, there's nice eyes in there to be caught. Havn't had time to get over there in a couple months, try to get there a couple times after labor day, the walleye fishing is really good late fall wink.gif

Dan, I have been fishing green each weekend for a few hours. Have not tried for crappies, I have been fishing smallies, and catching a few walleyes at the same time. Sunday was windy, made boat control a little tough. I have been fishing jig/minnow for most of my fish. I'm going to some of my fall lakes this week to check water temps. The good bite is just beginning. When is the family trip? We should go hit the river this fall.

Hey Jimmy, My family trip is the 20th, I guess the fish are bitting but hey up there the fish always seem to be on the bite at least we've done really good over the years.

a big YES on hitting the river this fall, I'm out on the croix every weekend, fishings been up and down but there's been more ups then downs. You really should try to make it out on sugar there nice ones.

I have seen a few nice eyes come out of sugar but that was a few years ago when the water temp is starting to fall just after dark in the shallow points. I was out there once this year and it sucked. To many topwater weeds just flowting around. Line kept getting fowlled up. Been over to clear water and they seem to be staying deep so far. May go back that way this weekend but where suppose to have storms this weekend I guess. Good luck to all.

      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.
