      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 .

The Appeldoorn's feel with the growth of Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort on the lake along with the Appeldoorn's Park Model Sales www.appeldoornsparkmodelsales.com in Onamia, Paul will be a big addition to the Appeldoorn family business.

Paul will be running the resort and I (The Cranker) will be running the Park Model Business along with helping out at the resort and marketing both business's.

"This is very exciting for all us." I have always wanted to live on Mille Lacs Lake and run a quality resort like Appeldoorn's. And now the Appeldoorn's have given me an opportunity to do both, and I am really excited to be working with the Appeldoorn's and The Cranker." says Paul

Paul and I along with HotSpotsOutdoors have already put a fishing event on the calender.

Cash payouts for largest two day weight, largest fish, and largest one day limit and a hospitality tent with a drinks and food will be avaliable.

Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort is very much looking forward to continue building its relationship with Fishing Minnesota/HotSpotOutdoors and Lund Boats www.lundboats.com on this event along with other events in the future, both in the summer and winter months.

"Everyone, is really going to want to see our new cabins 9 and 10." says Paul. "These cabins might just be the best rental cabins on the lake! We are going to get these pictures of 9 and 10 up on the www.sunsetbayml.com website here within the next couple of weeks. I am also very excited about the Four Season Park Model RV Cabin concept that the Appeldoorn's have. These Park Models are going to be the best alternative to owning a cabin there is. They are unbelievable! Everyone should check these Park Model RV Cabins that are four seasoned! I know you will be suprised at what the Appeldoorn's and The Cranker" are offering.

I also want to invite all of you that haven't seen Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort to come on up and really see what this fine resort has to offer. I feel the Appeldoorn's Resort is unlike all the other resorts on Mille Lacs. Thats why I took this position. Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort is truely your family/corperate oriented fishing resort with very nice facilities! Can you tell that I am excited! Says Paul.

I personally am excited about Paul coming on board. With his experience and enthusiasm its going to be alot of fun for us and above all for you!

Paul and I will be posting the Harvest Moon Walleye Tournament regulations here within the next couple of weeks. Please stay stuned for further developments. This tourney is going to be a big one! So get the net!

The Cranker & Paul -- WOW!!!!!

Paul, Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!

I have never met Paul, just numerous e-mails to him on getting me set up for Fall Crankbait trolling, and trying to get together for a day on the water this year.I spoke to him on the phone in the Fall. Thanks for all your help Paul!!! All I can say is that I'm very impressed with him. He is always willing to share his knowledge to everyone !!!!! He took time to e-mail me when I was first new to this web site. Made me feel welcome.

Cranker, I'm looking forward to meeting you this year. After reading all the positive and good words about you in the Winter forums, you and Paul seem to be the perfect team!!!!

Appeldoorn's must now be #1 on Mille Lacs with everything they have done this year!!!!!

Please keep me posted on the September Tournament.

TR,

Funny you should mention that.... but both Cranker and I spent the day on the beach working on our short game. He never did manage to get up and down.

On a serious note, we are working on a few play and stay packages that will feature golf and fishing.

      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.

      I have not seen a bird during season yet but I will get one or two I hope

      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!

      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.
