      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 .

Was by there today at 2:30 on co rd 7. West lake looks like there's still quite a bit of ice. Did see some open spots though.Would'nt think it will be long now with this wind.

Was at my father's place on west rush. He lives in the most west of the two south bays, lots of ice on it, and it looked as if most of the lake had a sheet of ice on it. He said that there was more ice today than yesterday. frown.gif

the last report I saw on MnDNR ice out page showed partial ice coverage. With the recent cold weather, a guy might want to try a different lake further south that has had a chance to warm up a little more.

There's also the Rush Lake Resort bait shop located about a mile south of the East Rush public access. It's probably more convenient if your going to fish East. Otherwise Rush Point store is closest to the West landing.

Thanks for the help. Like I said, I have not fished either east or west. any helpful hints or are they pretty helpful at the bait shops? I took my father out yesturday to forest lake(our 1st time)He caught a nice 12 inch crappie and we caught alot of small sunnies. all went back, but his eyes lit up when he saw the big crappie. Good times. Thanks

Tech;

There is also bait right next to the East Rush landing. Ray's Guide service is now also a bait shop.

Also, if your going up 35, there is Fish Lake Bait at the Harris exit.

Rush Point Store is on the West Lake, and if your planning on putting in on East, it's out of your way by quite a bit.

On the East lake, for Crappies, you'll want to head to the Southeast end to the boat channels.

Well we tried everywhere except where the fish were on both east and west. 2 bass 15& 17, 1 23inch northern, perch and sunnies. All trolling a beatle spin nothing jigging or under bobber. Oh well it was better then working. We did see a muskie in 3fow just hanging out. Closest I could tell it was about 45-50inches measuring with my rod. He looked a little beat up, a couple of white marks on his back like he was bit by another fish. It was cool to follow him through the clear water. Trolling motor did not phase him. Wish i had a good camera or one of the kids with. Then again if the kids saw a fish that big they probably wouldn't swim in a lake again. Good Luck to you!!!!

Yea, I was out on West yesterday from about 3-7, very slow for me too. Caught 1 crappie (8") and about a dozen small sunnies fishing along the shoreline. Hopefully the weather is better next weekend for the opener.

      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.
