      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 .

MANY GROUSE UP 46?

Recommended Posts

Huskie

How have the grouse numbers looked up in the Squaw Lake, Dora Lake to Northome areas? We will be heading up for this weekend and hope to locate some birds while we scout out our deer land. Hearing some good reports about flushes and wonder also if the colors will be at peak or post peak? Thanks,

I was just up to the Kelliher area this past weekend and would have to say that it's still a little difficult right now. That could just be the areas that I was hunting but there was still plenty of ground coverage for the birds. I hunted probably 8 hours between the two days and saw 4 birds getting two of them. That was even with the assistance of a dog.

The colors in the trees were nice and they should probably be around peak by next weekend but like I said the ground cover was still thick and really green.

I was up there this last weekend hunting around the lost fourty. flushed 15-20 birds in 6 hours of hunting but with all the cover getting a decent shot was tough. there are defenitly more birds than last year and once the leaves drop it should get easier.

That sounds good, we will not be far from there, a little west and south. It would be great to see the numbers on the upswing again, thanks for the reports.

Huskie- Just talked to my father in Northome and he is seeing an average of 4 birds a night after work. He and mom drive down the old rail road grade looking for deer and manage to see grouse at the same time. He said that they are getting jumpy because of all the traffic.

Let the people road hunt, it saves the birds for us who like to walk and enjoy the wilderness on our feet! grin.gif

Good luck when you are up here, and drop me a line and maybe I can give you some pointers on fish and birds.

Woodman: We fished Winnie, did ok, other boats by us did better. We did get back to Wagner, saw some deer sign, not a great deal, but we have decided to hunt it again this year anyway. Also picked up a few grouse while walking the area as well. Great two days, brought home a couple of meals, can't complain about that one bit. Might go back up over the Mea break. Good luck next week end and let me know what you see, thanks.

Huskie- Glad to hear that you had some luck! grin.gif Looks like we will be leaving on Friday evening after the fall festival at the Elementary School. That way I can get up early and hit the woods!

Managed to get 4 out of 6 last weekend just south of Northome. Talked to some guys up there and the numbers look awsome this year. It is nice to actually see a grouse again. The dogs did excellent and the kids also enjoyed the walks. Found many TICKS on the dogs which shocked me! shocked.gif

I haven't found one tick on the dog or myself. That shocked me.

      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.

      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.

      I have not seen a bird during season yet but I will get one or two I hope

      Looks like you got one woodcock and a snipe but I could be wrong but great job shooting.

      This is the insulated model. 8x8. If anyone wants it this week I'll let it go for 240.00. Won't  find a better deal!
