      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 .

Important FM get together information request

Recommended Posts

curt quesnell

I have searched and cannot find our earlier post on the

the June get together. I was talking to Scarface last

week and he mentioned the Warroad Point is still pretty

barren following the tornado that pummeled the area last

summer.

Here is the question (questions?) Since this years event

was to be in the beautiful park in Warroad, does anyone

know or will someone local check with Warroad and see what

the timetable is for rebuilding the gazebos and fish

cleaning houses. (that was question number one).

Since we havent apparently done this yet, can we get a first

draft on who may be attending. Two Saturdays to choose

from...June 16th and June 23rd. June 23rd is one of the

days for the new Walleye League but that runs from 8 am to

noon so I dont think that is much of a conflict, you can

do both???

Let me give you a quick run down on the day. We all meet

up at the boat landing and get squared away in the morning.

Fish fish fish fish fish, then we come in and have a fish

fry under the new gazebos and make a bunch of new friends.

If you dont have a boat-no problem, If you have a boat but

no one to fish with-no problem, we will have it all sorted

out by then.

Everyone brings something for the fish fry (also determined

in advance)and everyone brings their own beverages.

We are done and the mess is cleaned up before nightfall.

This is a nice family event, there will be wives and kids

along so dont be afraid to bring yours.

OK, now you type

Hey Curt, almost certain we will be there again--women!! For some reason or other, Monica thought that was a long way off. Likely bring beans, slaw and goose sticks again. This 60 degree stuff really has me thinking open water.

The 16th is Fathers Day weekend (darn). The next weekend

is Walleye League, the weekend after that is the 30th,

getting pretty close to the 4th of July weekend.

Start pitchin in what will or wont work for you..

Fathers Day weekend works for me.

Walleye League Saturday is only a catch because from

8 to noon I can have only one person in my boat with me.

The 30th is fine also.

When I was at the Warroad city council to get a permit to use the park for the walleye league HQ I asked that very question, Mayor Bob said the would know the plans for the Point reconstruction in about 3 weeks. That was on Feb 26 so they should know soon, I’ll check and post the answer.

Boar,

Small boat fishing out of Warroad is not a problem on a

nice day. There could possibly be a brand new playground

for the kids by that time, if the kids get enough of the

boat they can burn off some energy on the swings.

Thanks Scarface I know we must hurry up and wait a bit.

Thanks Pat. I just wrapped and hid a bunch for the get together. A little different mix this year--snows, blues, specks, canadas and mallards. Yumm.

Looking forward to heading out of Warroad for the first time. Will there be any low water problems?

Take care.

I'm still in ice mode and have'nt done any thinking let alone stocking up on openwater stuff yet.....Errrrr, a, I have been thinking jig, jig, jig on the Rainy though!

Barring another year with unforeseen circumstances, I will be there. My fishing partner now has the camping spot right next to mine in Warroad. There is a large open area behind our campers with plenty of parking, so the group is more than welcome to have the fish fry there....We even still have shade trees. I will also have people available to watch "smaller kids who get bored", and will have a couple seats in a bigger boat if it happens to be rough; so don't let that hold anyone back. Man am I ever getting Open Water Fever.

Hi Everyone,

As far as I can tell the Mrs and I will definately try and make it back this year. The 23rd or 30th weekend would probably work best for us. Might be able to swindle another taco saled out of the Mrs. Also thinking I might be able to get some hats or shirts from one of the new FM sponsors.

Since date hasnt been an issue yet. Lets toss fathers

day out of the mix leaving June 23rd and 30th.

Scarface, what do you think about the get together on top

of Walleye League the 23rd? Either date works for me.

Curt: 23th works better I would think, so as not to interfere with the Forth of July weekend. A lot of families have the next week off and are doing "The Family thing" from the 30th to the 9th.. I'd even think Fathers Day weekend would be something the Dad's could enjoy with their children.. Kaz

I dont think it is a good idea to have this event on top of

the Walleye league. Many of the regulars here will be busy

all morning with the league and will not have time to be

social.

Let's narrow this down to Fathers Day Saturday(16th) or

Saturday June 30th...

We will pick a date this week if we can....so pipe in here

and help choose

I vote for Fathers Day... Middle of June seems to be the better fishing too. Let's make it a Great Father's Day... smile.gif Kaz

I'll cast my vote for as early as possible in June.

I also don't think an FM gathering should be or would need to be scheduled around this new walleye league thing. I'm not sure how many 'regulars' are even in this new league deal, and the folks that come from a distance certainly are'nt, so why schedule the fm gtg around it???

The 23rd is fine by me.

I talked with Kathy at the Warroad city office. She said nothing has been confirmed yet. A designer was going to present a proposal for rebuilding the Point area structures on the April 5. They may know more after that.

Earlier will be better for fishing, so I vote for Father's Day or sooner. And again, don't worry about the shelters getting re-built, I've got it covered if they aren't ready.

      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.

      I will check it out a little latter. It looks like a good idea. I do a small diamond wrap on a lot of my ice rods.

      I'm gonna go but not before some of these crops get harvested.  It may not be until Thanksgiving but at least I'll increase my odds if I wait for a better chance of success.

      Looks like you got one woodcock and a snipe but I could be wrong but great job shooting.

      Saw over 10 birds on opener....all before legal shooting hour....Only 1 after before the rain started.

      i went out for a couple hours yesterday looking for grouse.  The buddy i was with never has been hunting for grouse or woodcock.  We only saw 1 grouse with no chance for a shot but got both woodcock that flushed.

      As MB said, high water tends to spread fish out and push them tighter to the banks in any slower water they can find.  A "normal" year with low water in October can be ridiculously, almost unfairly good in the river when you find the smallies. There's a reason it's mandatory catch and release now, as they pile up in deeper, slower water and can be quite vulnerable if/when you find them.   That being said, the difference in high vs. low water is not as pronounced above the dams (either the 10th St, Sartell, Little Falls, Blanchard, etc.) as it is below them.  At least in my experience, anyways.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has produced six new, state-of-the-art maps that will make it easier and safer for people to explore, hunt, and recreate in state forests.   “The DNR has updated six state forests with 53 more to go,” said Forrest Boe, director of the DNR Forestry Division. “This five-year effort will include updating maps for all of Minnesota’s state forests.” State forest users now have two maps options. A geoPDF map will allow users to download a map onto a mobile device using a variety of map apps and then track their location as a blue dot on the screen. The new user-friendly, paper maps highlight the unique recreation features of each forest and include pop-out maps for popular campgrounds and day-use areas. “The little blue dot that appears on the map on my phone goes with me whether I’m on or off-trail,” said Laura Duffey, DNR state forest map project coordinator. “This feature lets people know exactly where they are in a state forest—no more getting lost.” The maps are also more detailed than previous versions and highlight the endless recreation opportunities in state forests, such as hiking, mountain biking, birding, berry picking, cross-country skiing, hunting, and horseback, ATV and snowmobile riding. Many state forests also offer campgrounds, fishing piers, boat launches, swimming beaches, and picnic areas. The six new maps are available in time for fall hunting and cover more than 240,000 acres of state forest land and thousands of miles of trails. New geoPDF and paper maps are now available for: Paul Bunyan State Forest in Cass and Hubbard counties Badoura State Forest in Cass and Hubbard counties Croix State Forest in Pine County Huntersville State Forest in Cass, Hubbard and Wadena counties Lyons State Forest in Wadena County. Chengwatana State Forest in Pine and Chisago counties The Paul Bunyan and Badoura state forests are popular spots for hunters. Combined, they contain two campgrounds and day-use areas, four off-highway vehicle trails, five wildlife management areas (WMA), two ruffed grouse management areas, and four state game refuges. They also have hiking, biking, snowmobiling and skiing trails. The Huntersville and Lyons state forests are popular with hunters. Each state forest contains four WMAs and several miles of trails and roads for off-highway vehicles. Additionally, the Huntersville State Forest offers two campgrounds, a horse campground, and 24 miles of designated horse trails. The St. Croix State Forest offers a variety of year-round recreation opportunities. It has 20 miles of horseback trails and a horse campground with 56 campsites. In the winter snowmobilers can enjoy 42 miles of trails while in the summer mountain bikers can cruise 25 miles of trails. The Boulder Campground and day-use area has 22 secluded campsites and access to Rock Lake for swimming, fishing and boating. The Chengwatana State Forest contains the Snake River Campground and several miles of off-highway motorcycle and all-terrain vehicle trails. Three state water trails run through the forest: Kettle River, Snake River, and St. Croix River. Snowmobliers also use the Matthew Lourey State Trail, which runs through the forest. The new maps also shows locations of National Park Service campsites along the St. Croix River.Digital, geoPDF maps are available on the state forest’s webpage at www.mndnr.gov/stateforests. People can get a free paper map at a local DNR office or the DNR Info Center by sending an email to info.dnr@state.mn.us or calling 888-646-6367, Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-8 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
