      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 .

Is there anyone in the Duluth area that builds a good sturdy fishouse trailer and are reasonably priced? I am looking for a trailer which the wheels can crank up and the house will sit directly on the ice. General size that i'm looking for would be 8x12. Thanks.

Check out Jay Soderbloom out near Cromwell. Just Google his name and you will find lots of info. He makes some really nice light aluminum trailers and houses.

Northern Tool sells trailer frames in Duluth, and Quality fish house frames and houses are sold through Bowe taxidermy. Jay Soderbloom near Cromwell has been great to deal with as well as I have been building mine all summer. That's all I know off for local stuff.

I second what Granny said. Great houses that are light, way warm (Sray foamed) and at a great price.

Actually, yes. My nephew who is a carpenter by trade, was in the market to buy one a couple years ago. He got tired of the so-so construction and poor floor plans of ones made by others, so he made one for himself. Now, he's started building them for others. He got help from his great uncle who was a welder until he retired for the frame. Then, he installed hydraulic lifting axles, an electric panel-inverter with a heater, lights, bunks, radio, rod holders, etc. He put a stove/oven in one too. He's building his 3rd house now, and he's 8 miles north of town. Of course, he'll be after old mossy antlers this weekend, but if you want to drop in to at least look at what he's building now, with no pressure, I'm sure he'd be more than happy to let you look at what he builds. I don't mean to speak for him, but maybe he'd be interested in building one to meet your specs. He enjoys building process, doing it in the evenings after work. He's a relaxed, low key guy.

If you're interested, reply back to this post, or send an e-mail to my home mail, and I'll reply with his phone number.

I'll check back to this next week. I'm off soon to prep for the hunt this weekend too.

My home mail is - evntam AT msn.com - if you put it together right with the @ thing.

I have always had my frames built by "The Fish House Store" in Milaca,Mn. I have not had one problem with them. They have been building wheel shacks & frames for over 18 yrs. They are also the only manufacturer who will back their frames with a 10 yr warranty. I hope this helps you out.

      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.
