      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 .

Little Trout Lake on Grassy Bay

Recommended Posts

jonny_redhorse

I've been by this small trout/walleye lake a thousand times while in the grassy bay area of sand point lake...this year I was thinking of going in to check it out and maybe even set up a camp(tent) for a long week-end.......anyone have any "ins" on the lake?...I was thinking of portaging my small solo canoe into it(12')...I also realize the park service has a boat for rent right at the lake site but would rather do the canoe thing...the lake certainly can't be "overfished" because of he seclusion...just wondering if anyone's been into it and has any experience with the "lakers" in it...jonny

Johnny, I know of several people that have been back there in the winter time for trout fishing, most with so-so results, as for summer fishing I can't help you, maybe some of the Crane Lake end folks have a little more info, I'll inquire with some friends and if i get anything I'll post. guts

Johnny,

I know some info about Little Trout that may help. First there is not a Park Service boat on this particular lake. The only pressure it gets is from shore fishermen or those willing to hump a boat in there. A few also fish it in the winter. There are Trout, Bass, Walleyes and Northerns in this lake. For some reason there are not alot of trout caught in Little Trout and I really don't know why. The test netting on the lake show a good population of trout but they seem to be hard to catch. It could be that no one has spent the time to figure the pattern out yet.

This all being said, I think that it would be a great place to camp out and spend a few days fishing. Hope this answers your questions.

JohnyR did you ever try LittleT for trout? I was thinking about heading up there to crappie fishing in the AM in grassy bay and then trying for trout in LittleT in the afternoon? Any tips on where to fish (or not to fish)? What about the trail into it? It is not on the snowmobile map? I heard that sometimes you have to haul your tow sled in from Grassy Bay?

mav....I haven't been into the lake but will this june sometime...working out the details of the trip just this week...I plan on hiring a "shuttle" to bring all my gear up to the area as I don't really want a full sized boat(just canoe)...stay on one of the bigger campsites on sandpoint and then paddle across to little trout... portage my canoe in.. and set up a "spike camp" somewhere on the lake...just in the planning stage now... getting the "itch" to see the crystal clear water in little trout(water clarity is 25')and tie into those lakers and smallmouths(the walleyes and crappies can be had on sandpoint)grin.gifjonny

      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.
