      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 .

Hardee's/Rainy Lake One Stop

Recommended Posts

wstierney

We are arriving in the afternoon on 5/20 and want to know where Hardees and Rainy Lake One Stop are in reference to Island View. We'd like to fill our gut at Hardees and pick up a few items at One Stop if we can. Not to mention picking up a few last minute pointers.

Fishmeister - will you be at the Hardees on that Sunday?

Bill - what about you at the shop on that day?

HI WST.,

WELL THANKS FOR STOPPING AT HARDEES, HOWEVER NO I WON'T BE THERE...WALLEYE SEASON HAS BEGUN, SUNDAYS ARE MY DAY OFF, AND IT HAPPENS TO BE MY 49TH BIRTHDAY. I'M GOING TO TRY & BETTER MY WALLEYE RECORD...AS ON MY 43RD BIRTHDAY AT 7:30 A.M. I LANDED A WALLEYE-11.7....SO I APPRECAITE THE BUSINESS IN ADVANCE & HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT HARDEES EXPERIENCE & OUTSTANDING FISHING. RAINY LAKE ONE STOP SITS ABOUT 3 MILES ON HIGHWAY 11 EAST ON THE SOUTH(RIGHT) SIDE OF THE ROAD, CONTINUE ON 11 EAST ANOTHER 6 MILES & YOU WILL COME TO ISLAND VIEW.

SINCERELY. FISHMEISTER

No problem meister. Good luck with the opener. Just do me a favor and tell your staff to make my thickburger a little thicker and a little rarer and we'll be in business.

By the way - I have seen a couple of postings about H2O temps in the upper 50's in Black Bay/Rat Root area. We fished there a couple of years ago and did well. We are staying just across the canadian border on a private island (about 6 miles or so from Island View, between Pukamo Island and Nowhere Island). I am assuming H2O temps are drastically cooler in this area. What other bays near the area we are staying are dark like black bay and will have warmed?

Places like Haymarsh Bay, Commissioners Bay? My understanding is that the water on the northern side is a little clearer and may warm slower. True?

Thanks again for all the guidance over the last couple of months. I have been a regular on the site and visit it at least once a day. Call me a fishnut, but when your passionate about this sport, you will read anything to gain perspective on the water you are fishing.

I've done well in Grassy Portage and Duck Bay at that time of year.

I was out yesterday and the lowest reading I found was 49 near the Causeway. Rest of main North Arm was 51. Back bays were hitting 70 in extreme back ends but mostly low 60s.

      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.

      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.
