      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 .

Great Music at Voyagaire Lodge on 5/25

Recommended Posts

bigtoe

Hey everyone...I know this is a fishing post, but I want to let everyone know about a fun annual party at Voyagaire lodge every year on Friday of Memorial Weekend. Since 1993 we've been a bunch of professional singer/songwriter guitar guys who come up for our annual houseboat trip and play a group gig at the bar at Voyagaire from about 8-1 a.m. It's all acoustic guitars, a bass, congas, and guys rotating in and out to sing just about every american acoustic classic you can think of. It brings out a whole bunch of locals, some guides, and is just a great time all the way around. Then we leave in the morning and find a houseboat site and fish and play music around a fire all weekend long.

Come on over and have a beer with us!

I will be up with my Cousin (who has never been north of Walker) a couple days before this, we might just have to stop in since we'll be camping Tues-Mon.

hop sing

Ive heard you guys a few times. You've played every year for a few years now right? pretty good stuff! I hear you need a little assistance with the fishing skills though. Your group brings up a lot of cream of mushroom soup and corn i assume? hahaha! Hi Glen. See you up there memorial weekend Friday. Cant wait.

Crappie Keith,

Dockboy got out to fish on the opener so my guess is he is either retired or works in a profession other than the hospitality industry grin.gif !

Hey Crappie Kieth...will Memorial Day be too late for the crappie bite? Jim at Voyagaire said they've been hot lately, and we're hoping to catch the tail end of the shallow bite. We've been going up there and renting a houseboat for 17 years on memorial Day weekend and never fished crappies...we figured this year we'll give them a go.

I've heard Grassy Bay can be good.

I think Bill And Deanna bought another resort, a Ma & Pa place. There's a link from the Voyagaire Houseboat website to some cabins, and it brings you to their rentals.

I'm thinking with the cold front that came through it'll have pushed the spawn out a bit so you should have time to get into them as it will warm back up.Those crappies sure do react to a cold front in that shallow water.

Thanks for the tip on Bill & Deanna!

They really took care of me when I worked that 1 spring for them.

Be sure to hit the gorge around the corner from the lodge.

I've had walleyes near sprain a wrist in there.

Thanks Keith! We'll give the crappies a go and see what happens. I doubt we'll get to the gorge as we like to bring the houseboat up to the Namakan Narrows and get away from the crowds. The Narrows can be good in spring, as can the cluster of Islands west of the entrance to the narrows on Namakan. I want to fish Grassy for Crappies, too, and David lake for bass, and...oh, well, we only get three days on the water. But I'll be back up in June with my son.

Listen for the sounds of guitars and laughter on Sand Point North Island!

      any luck there? i've never had luck. hoping to break my unlucky streak 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.

      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!
