      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 .

Just back from Cabo for a few days of fishing. Overall for the week the fishing started off slow, skunked on our first charter on Wednesday the 27th, not a single tail to be spotted. It seemed everyone else was pretty close to the same. After a bummer trip we mustered up another trip with a little faster boat to get us 40 miles out.

The Marlin Master IV topped out at 68MPH

The day went pretty good from the get go, 2 lines in the water working on the third and snap, fish on!

This color had all the hits from the stripers that day

IMG_1093.jpg Good old Firetiger!

Heres a pic of the small striped prior to release

And the release IMG_1099.jpgIMG_1098.jpg

We chased tail for about another 4 hours seeing over 20 Marlin within 30 yards of the boat. We had 3 get off, also had one of the largest striped I have ever seen get on and go airborne for about 2 minutes until it landed on the leader and snapped it. Overall there were alot of Marlin congregated in the area we were in and we had it to ourselves for several hours before the rest of the Cabo fleet arrived. Captain said with the full moon the fish are less likely to hit as they fed all night. The early morning was pretty prime then after that you could throw anything at them and they would just swim away. We turned over to Tuna after that. Here is a pic of a skipjack that was released IMG_1104.jpg All in all we landed 1 marlin, 4 tuna, 1 skip jack and a stray mahi. Tried to temp 3 mako's but couldn't get them to go. The first two Blue's were taken this past week as the water is a bit warmer this year then in past, one tipped the scales at a guestimated 400+ lbs.

Sounds like you had fun ...great pics !!!! did you think about stuffing that charter boat in your suit case and bring it back to Lake Superior ????? We were in PV back in feb but talked about next year going to Cabo or Acupulco ,,,some day I would like to get into fishing like that

Hey Cheffrey; welcome home to this miserable weather! Betcha wish you coulda stayed another week:) I figured you'd be up against it this week as the reports have really tapered off. Did you fish Pisces the first day you were skunked? Where did you find the other boat? Outboards are rare enuf down there, never seen the likes of that boat in the harbor. Do you have contact info? What did you pay? Just might have to look at them when I get down there the end of May. Anyway, it's always good to spend a wek in Cabo, eh?

Traveler, look up Marlin Masters in Cabo, they are a modest fleet of 6-7 boats with a guy from Atlanta owning it. Nice little store front in the shopping mall near picante`. That boat ran 600 all inclusive, started at 700. They sell it cheaper as it is not as comfortable but to me its the best experience I have had. The other boat was the Marisol II, Father in Law wrangled it in a timeshare presentation for 250 for 7 people. More of a whale watching trip than anything. The Marlin Masters plan to start a Kayak program for Marlin on the fly. Sounds crazy but they should be set up next year.

Cool! I've seen a couple articles about the yak fishing; I'll be all over that when they get going. I know theres an outfit up on the cape that does it now. I'll check out MM; not surprised on the timeshare setup boat:( I did that once in Mazatlan, same story.

I fished out of a very similar Fountain with triple 225 Optimax Merc's. We had to travel 60 miles into the gulf off the coast of Louisiana to fish the Oil Rigs and that thing halled some serious A$$.

I thought we had the fastest boat out there until we pulled up on another Fountain that had Quad 250's on the back. shocked.gif

Great photos! I have a trip planned to Zihuantanejo next January and was wondering if anyone has ever fished out of there and can recommended any boats or captains? I have never been there. I have looked around on the Internet some but have a hard deciding or weeding out the less creditable ones.

I have fished with Captain Santiago and his brother Adan on the Gitana 1 and 2. They are both pangas but they catch a lot of fish. I've caught a lot of sailfish with them.

      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.
