      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 .

Calling Mr. Axel (or anyone) - I am going to be up in the area again for a week this year. I would like to get the boat trailer sandblasted/painted while I am there since my trailer just sits in the parking lot all week. I was just wondering if anyone in the area does this kind of work? THX

The trailer is for a 17' Basstracker. Not sure how to measure the trailer for size.

MT - I will email you.

TO - Sorry, did I put something wrong on here?

JD, you're fine but thanks for asking. Mountaindew was walking a thin line on some of the information in his original post, so I edited.

I hope you guys are able to connect.

MT - You have mail.

TO - Thanks, I did not notice the edit until after I posted.

I am going to be up there chasing walleyes on Tetonka from May 16-23rd. Hit the lake for the first time last year and after about a day had a good pattern going. Hopefully, I can get on another good bite this year. If anyone is in area during this week and would like to hookup just let me know. When my wife does not go out in the boat with me I usually have room for one.

JD, you'll have to keep me posted on what's happening. I'll be guiding down here May 18 - 20, so perhaps we can bounce some ideas off one another because you'll be a few days up on me. My cell # is 612-756-2184.

Mountaindew, no sweat. Thanks for understanding.

TO - Have your number written down and put in boat. I'll try to give you a ring Thur.night 17th or early Fri. 18th. When is too late/early to call? It would be fun to kick around what is working and what is not. I'm hoping same pattern will work this year as last however we all know it is never that easy.

Couple questions for you? How are the water levels up there so far? Has it ever been a problem getting between Tetonka and Sakatah?

How far a drive to Reel Fishing and Tackle from Waterville? I would like to visit the store with my wife and daughter one of the days we are up there. I can always use some new tackle (who can't) and sometimes find lures you don't see in other places. Also, would like to meet a few of the people there.

Thanks and really looking forward to the trip.

Sounds good. You can call up to 10:00 pm and as early as 5:00 am. I'll be fresh off a trip to Mille Lacs so we'll definitely be banging ideas off one another.

The water levels are decent right now but there's plenty of room for improvement. Personally, I've never had an issue going between lakes but anything more than an 18' boat could be a little challenging in a few places.

To Reel Fishing and Tackle from Waterville, you're looking at 15 minutes tops. Tell Joe, Matt or Katy I sent ya'.

Talk to you 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!
