      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 .

We made venison summer sausage last weekend ooo.gif Yes, it is good. But I like it a little more smokey than the rest of the crew. It does have ground pork butt in it. I normally slow cook it in the stove, then crank it up at the end to get it up to 160 on the inside. My question is, would it be o.k. to use my charcoal smoker for the first hour to increase the smoke taste, then finish it in the stove? I might add that the smoke flavor we presently have in it comes from liquid smoke. Just wondering if anyone out there has tried this. I will be cooking the second batch this weekend. Thanks. BC

Cheffrey is very bussy getting ready for the Grand Superior Lodge Wild Game feed on Saturday but Im sure when he does see this he will lend a helping hand. Im sure he has a few tricks up his sleeve for ya.

Anyone else going to the Wild Game Feed? 6pm Sat. There will be a film crew there so where all your FM gear if ya show.

Have fun at the feed Steve. I wish I could go. I am in the woods all day Saturday and in return I get the kids that night so mama can do something. Hopefully Cheffrey or anyone else that may have tried this can help me out. BC

Mark I would smoke it if thats the flavor you like. Temp is crucial when making sausage so I wouldn't be cranking the heat up, just let it reach an internal temp slowly through the smoking process. Get it too hot and it'll drip, once that happens your not making sausage anymore, your just cooking meat. You can bring it over and throw it in my smoker.

I'll call you when its all done grin.gif

Steve, this is the first I've heard about the game dinner.

Leila and I will try and make it.

Steve,I wish I could go to the Game Feed with you, but I have to go to SD to chase some roosters. I hope to get to the 1 in the spring. Have fun and have plenty of the South shore brew for me.

BC, I would be hesitant to throw it in the oven, may dry it out a touch. Slow smoking it under 200 degrees would be the ideal way with a center temp reading of 165 to ensure it fully cooking through. Head to Gander and get some wood chips to throw in with the charcoal to give it a real smoke flavor.

As far as the game dinner, lots of butchering going on the past two days between partridge, pheasant, rattlesnake, antelope, caribou........... Keeps a guy busy. We got a call on Monday from MPLS KSTP channel 5's "Jason Davis on the road" that they will be filming for a Jan/Feb segment. If you do make it be sure to come in your finest FM gear as they will be roaming all over the room talking with tables looking for entertaining personalities.

Cheffrey, my oven goes down to 175. I cook it at that for 4 hours then amp it up to 300 the last half hour. That gives me an internal temp. right around 165/170. I just thought I would try to throw it in my charcoal smoker for the first hour to smoke it up more than it already is. I don't need to run to Gander, I always use alder. It's everywhere and it's free. It also seems to give a strong smoke flavor. Thanks for the response, and good luck on the feed (wish I could make it frown.gif) BC

      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.
