      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 .

Then take them Morel Mushroom hunting. Lilacs are starting to bloom. Looks like 4 days of rain. If they aren't out this weekend, they should be just afterwards. Even my boy who dislikes mushrooms, likes Morels. Kids like missions.

.....and my main boat is still in storage behind two campers..... shocked.gif

I've never really hunted for crawlers before, but would love to try it. I live in sherburne county, where much of the soil is sand. Where would be a good location to look for them? thanks.

Schools, golf courses, parks, hospitals, they all tend to keep there grass kept up and mowed low for easier spotting and grabbing.

I thought I blew posting this when we only got a quarter inch of rain and things were drying out by dark; but we found at least 50 before 10:00 pm. Can run the hose for some extra ones if its dry where you are. Might go out again this weekend when its even wetter.

One of my favorite things to do on a damp night. The memories of my dad and I "hunting" crawlers came flooding back when I read that title.

Bless you guys- the bullheads'll love ya!! My old neighbor when I was a kid used to have an electric prod system he'd stick in the ground, he would go out in the middle of a sunny day and get 'em all day long.

Morels ARE just starting, more rain would have been better. Found only seven today (Sunday). Check out "Hunting" forum for more talk.

When I was a kid we would run the hose in the backyard under a heavy canvas tarp for a while. During the day! We didn't get a lot of of crawlers, but enough to fish for the day. Riding our bikes to the lake... the memories. ooo.gif

What's the going rate for kid's crawlers? My kids will sell some to a guy at my wife's work, he's going to Canada (only artificial bedding allowed).

I gave him $5 for all I could use in one day. I didn't even use a dozen. His smile was pretty big and probably thought I was a real sucker. Of course, I was bragging I was going to catch tons of fish and use all of his nightcrawlers and really rip him off. (He was fishing with us)

      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.
