      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 .

Well, I'm all set to hit the river saturday morning, went and got ten gallons of premium in the boat, 3 more scoops of fatties to go along with the misc. redtails/ shinners, got 2 bobber rods loaded, 2 bottom bouncer rods loaded, 2 jig rods and a couple two riggen rods ready the go, batteries have been checked, GPS batteries are on the charger, I'm pumped up! The bridge area around Prescott is always a good choice this time of the year, as it also is in the spring, years past its been very good but its kind of loud around there, The river just has so many other less pressured spots that are peaceful, I will most likely be heading for them. Looks like it will be me and my dog out on saturday if he's up for it! grin.gif

Walli, perhaps we'll see you down there tomorrow. I was planning on staying away from Prescott as I'm sure there'll be more boats there than the rest of the river combined. I have 5 or 6 spots between Prescott and the Kinni that I plan to hit and if you're around I'll say hey. I'll be in a Tracker Tundra with a couple of Mercs on the back. I don't see too many of those down there so I should be easy to spot.

What types of depths/locations are you fishing with bobber rigs this time of year? Never have done much bobber fishing for river walleyes but always wanted to give it a try.

My partner and I fished the Vermillion yesterday. We caught about 25 wallege, 1 sauger. Biggest fish were a 22.75, 19.25 & 18.75. A few boats were in the area catching crappies in the timber. Pitched jigs with fatty's and twister tails to shore. Did lose a couple nice fish, too.

I did talk with a gentleman at the landing when we left who had fished Prescot. He said he caught two fish all day. Hope this helps.

Alright here's the scoop on bobber fishing the river at this time of year, I've found that ice jiggen spoons under a bobber work real well tipped with a fatty also vertical jigging them works well also, bringing ice jigging techquies to the river, strange but works!

USE2BWALLEYEFANATIC Hey I'm planning on fishing between Prescott and the Kinni also. 98% of the time I fish below the kinni somewhere, I only made it above the kinni 4 times this year and there isn't anything up beyond that point that I can't find below it. I've focused below the Kinni as long as I've been fishing the river so I know that 6 miles pretty good but I got alot to learn, the AQUA VA is a great tool and it will be in the boat in the morning, see you on the water! grin.gif

      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.
