      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 .

Hi, coming up the 22nd and staying a week. Rainy is my absolute favorite vacation. Have fished on the Minesota side of Rainy and done pretty well on Smallmouths, walleyes and Pike. This year after reading how the fishing is better on the Canadian side we will be doing some fishing up there. Have not seen much in the way of walleye, smallmouth or pike reports lately. After reading about the crappie think we would like to try and find some of them also. Any info would be deeply appreciated. Fishmeister and Mr. Landmark, would like to stop in and say hello, When are you guys normally at work? Read your post all year long wishing I was there instead of at work.

Thank you,

Shooterc, alias Greg

Shooter,

Fishmeister is going to be a better source of info than I will be. I have been down in duluth at school for the last two weeks, so no fishing for me. However your crappies are going to be predictable. Look to the 28' to 30' depths in sand bay to produce. Basically you can find them around any of the islands, though they will be less concentrated than the ones in canada. In Canada, I would look off the shore line breaks in 26-32 feet of water. They will be suspended and should be easy to find. Areras in Redgut and up into Spawn Inlet would be good places to start looking.

I think that I may be up for that weekend, but it all depends on my new work schedule. Take Care and Good Luck fishing!! grin.gif

Oh by the way...Slurpies are going to be killer. Use the jerk shad for bass and pike and the regular large shad tube and dipstick worm for smallies. Work the swim shad in fire tiger and shad colors for the crappies!! You can't go wrong with these!

Does the One Stop have the firetiger dipstick worm and jerk shad on hand? Can't find any here in the cities.

Sand Bay Sultan

I fish sand bay almost every day between 4:00 and 8:00pm today(9/15) the walleyes were in 20 to 24 feet, but the big ones were all in 22 feet. I used an orange flicker spinner (tiny spinner) a 3/8 ounce sinker and a night crawler trolled around a reef and between me and my girlfriend we used up 3 doz worms in 3 hours kept 8 walleyes between 13 and 16 1/2 inches. Released a 27 inch, a 28 inch, three 25 inch and to many little eyes to count also caught one 13 1/2 inch crappie

      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.
