      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 .

Spend fishing time with?

Recommended Posts

Bobby Bass

This is a rip off of the "Todays Fishing Media Personalities" thread. Name the one person and just one person that you would like to spend some fishing time in a boat with. I would like to spend some time with Mike Rowe from Dirty Jobs. He comes across as a very nice guy and I have no doubt if he was willing he would have more then enough stories to just make me sit there and listen. I can't imagine what he would have to say about stories behind the stories..

Besides Jenna and the Bikini team my next choice would prolly have to be Neil Peart.

I have no idea if he fishes or not, but the dude's just way too cool to not hang out with if ya can.

I think a couple of hours and a few suds with Ted Nugent could be pretty enlightening.

Good choice DTRO. Both of my G'Pas' for a "last trip" if they were still around would be ideal.

I did fish with David Walker of the Wheaties Box "Angler of the Year" in about 2000 and he was very, very cool. Lots of laughs and lots of hunting and fishing stories. Good guy. Taught me a lot too.

Pat MacManus would be a good guy to drown some minnows with smile.gif

I would have to say My DAD ,,he was a 1/3 owner of a 12 ft shallow sears aluminum boat so we didnt get to fish out of it all that much ,,shortly before I got my first boat he was already diagnosed and died 55 days after his grandaughter was born and about 3 months after I got the boat frown.gif so many things left unsaid

I hear ya! My mom died when I was 8. I have no idea if she would have liked to go fishing or not, but I have a hunch she would have still came along anyway.

I'd like to spend a day fishing Sag with the "Big Guy" Jesus. I bet we'd get on some fish, I could run all over the lake at wot and not worry about my lower unit, and I guess we could go over a couple of other issues that I'm concerned about. smirk.gif

I also would choose 2 people that would be my parents since I never got a chance to fish with them as an adult so many questions. Besides I'd like for my daughter to be with so she could meet her grandparents.

Would love to fish one more time with my mom....(if the weekend surgeries go well...we may get a chance)

Regarding those who'd want to fish with Jenna Jameson...reminds me of a punchline...as you pull into shore, and the buddies at the launch see you escort her from the boat, they call to you and say "did you catch anything"...you coyly reply: "I hope not!"

My Dad and my Mom. Dad passed away unexpectedly 19 months ago. Mom has no interest in fishing since then. Would love to spend just one more day with him. OK, that's a lie... I would love to have a lot more time than that with him. I always figured there is lots of time yet... wrong again! Hug your loved ones, you just never know. Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Now with the verse and all, I am curious how you would know about this particular personality? Just curious. I liked Halle Barry on the houseboat and she is on my list so my wife couldn't squack, course Alan Jackson or Mel Gibson could invite her out too, so then I'd be hosed! grin.gif

My grandpa. My inspiration and teacher of everything that made me a sportsman. When I was a little kid, grandpa had already retired. My bro and I used to spend two weeks with him in the summer and we'd fish every day on the Mississippi river out of Trempeleau area. Panfish and some casting for Northern/Bass. Gosh I never had a hot dog that tasted any better than the ones we used to roast on a sandbar over an open fire we'd made at lunch. They were the BEST of times.

My dad used to travel from Ky to MN and we would go to Canada for a week. Today he is pushing 90 and residing in a nursing home and when I visit he dosn't even know who I am. When I'm there he always asks me where I live and when I tell him Duluth he will say my son lives there and we used to go fishing togeather. One more time would be just fine with me.

      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.
