      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 .

One thing I hate is folks who hunt land without permission. My group works very hard to get land to hunt in South Dakota. The land owners all work during the day and don't watch to see if the right people are hunting their land.

We had a group from Arkansas hunting on our land without permission. When I approached them I asked them the question of which I knew the answer. "Do you have permission to hunt on this land?" The leader of the group said. "Well, we hunted it several years ago" I asked " Do you have permission to hunt it this year?" He said," Well, nobody said we could ... but nobody said we couldn't."

Then I saw some of their guys going across the road to hunt. I told him they couldn't hunt that piece either because the man who owned that land was saving it for his son who had travelled up from Arizona to hunt. The man from Arkansas just looked at me and said in his southern drawl, "Oh heck, they got lots of birds ... don't mind if we take a few." I was shocked that they were so oblivious to what they were doing.

I think they had a lot of money. They said they flew private jets up and paid someone to drive their dogs and equipment up. Maybe they figured they would just pay off the land owner if they got caught.

Then the next day a bunch of guys from Wisconsin were on the land. They acted dumb and said " Well isn't this So & So's land." They knew.

The thing was they had already gotten only two birds short of their groups limit on the land we were going to hunt. They were going across the road to finish out.

The land owner is a real nice guy and I didn't go make a fuss with him because I didn't want him getting a bad taste for hunters. I've seen some guys go from letting folks hunt to not letting anyone hunt when there are hunters hunting without permission.

Lucky for us we've kept our contacts over the last twenty years and found other places to hunt. Unlucky for us ... none of them are as good as this piece of land.

Good Land in SD is pretty hard to find if you don't pay for it. It is very important to give the land ownerstoatl respect.

I have access to some very small portions of decent private land and fortunalty ahve a great relationship with the landowners. I know first hand that is only takes one bad experiance for a landowner to quit letting hunters onto their property.

Please treat them with the respect. I try and do trades such as a pheasant hunt for a fishing trip. Seems to work rather well.

I agree... I do similar things. I always go to the dollar store and buy some cheap baskets. Then I fill them up with goodies like candy, nuts, jams, jerky and bring them to every land owner I have permission. My wife bought about 50 pounds of Salmon from some guy so this year the baskets will include Salmon.

If it is a big piece of land I'll paint their barn or their house as long as they let me hunt. They jump at the chance to have their buildings painted for free.

      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.
