      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 .

Pine Island report 03-12 to 03-15

Recommended Posts

Got back last night from fishing in the Pine Island area. Went out on Adrian's road and boy did they point us in the right direction. We fished 18 ft of water and caught some nice ones. Within an hour and 1/2 we caught a 28 1/2, 29 1/2 and a 31 incher! We fished out deeper during the day but didn't do that well. We caught our limit of and put back a lot of nice eater sized walleye but came up four short of saugers. We probably caught 50 fish for the trip (which isn't really fast and furious for LOW) but those biggins sure made it worth the drive.

Adrian's road was OK. Quite a bit of water our first and second day but then the cold weather came and really helped out. Pulling a retractable wheel shack was SLOW GOING! It was pretty bumpy. I'm sure the roads are much better now with the snow they got and the colder weather. Adrian's was out there constantly working on the bad spots and re-directing around the giant puddles. Off road travel was pretty much anywhere you want to go with 4 wheel drive.

I'd post the pictures, but I'm not very computer literate and I've tried before with no success. I could e-mail someone them if they can do it for me...

Shiners worked better than fatheads and as far as color...keep changing. Every color seemed to work but only for a little while.

For those headed up I'd call Adrian's and check on conditions (roads that is.) The fishing conditions I'm sure will be awesome.

My wife and I are heading up for the 22th, 23rd, 24th. Are looking forward to a get away. 1st trip up there this year.

What does Adrians charge for access fee for truck and wheel house? Sounds like you had a good time pulling line against the nice walleyes.

Thanks for the good report!! smirk.gif

Wingnut: We will be at Riverbend Resort which is right next to Adrians. We will arrive on Wed night and fish Thursday and Friday, possibly Saturday. I will also be on the hand held radio channel 3. Looks like we're headed to Knight and Bridges Island on Thursday, and Friday is open for bids from the fish at this time. Good luck and hang on. Bill

Shadyzr: Sounds like lake travel cross country improved quite a lot since the big snow, so you should be able to get off the beaten path to set up. Adrians will certainly have an idea of how deep to might need to fish. We're headed to the islands on Thursday, not sure yet about Friday. good luck on your trip and hang on. Bill

      any luck there? i've never had luck. hoping to break my unlucky streak soon.
    • HugeHogChaser
      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.

      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.

      This is the insulated model. 8x8. If anyone wants it this week I'll let it go for 240.00. Won't  find a better deal!
