      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 .

I heard the sirens last night while coaching a soccer game in Biwabik and wondered what could be going in a little town.

Sounds like they found him safe a sound. Not many details right now but he is safe.

Great to hear, I can see how easily this could happen.

My 4 year old sometimes starts to follow the dog around in the woods and gets "turned around", even in our small woods.

I'll bet the family is beyond relief.

Six-year-old Jacob Lee Lagerquist was found alive and well this afternoon about three-quarters of a mile north of his house on St. Louis County Highway 4 after being missing for 21 hours.

Lagerquist was found in the woods at about 3:30 p.m. by a volunteer from nearby Biwabik.

Jacob was quickly reunited with his parents and then was checked by paramedics but appeared fine.

Minutes later Ted Lagerquist carried Jacob in his arms to the end of the family’s driveway to meet with reporters.

It was the happy ending that everyone was hoping for but not even the father was expecting.

“Praise the lord!’’ Ted Lagerquist said. “I expected the worst. God bless everybody… It’s been a tough 24 hours for us.’’

Jacob said he spent the night “out in the woods. I was sleeping out there,’’ the six year old told reporters. Search officials said temperatures dropped to about 45 degrees overnight and that hypothermia and exposure were a concern.

Jacob was found by Tim Baldonado of Biwabik Township, a volunteer who has a child the same age as Jacob. He was searching in a group of 10 volunteers and first saw the boy hugging a small tree about 25 feet away.

“He was standing next to a tree. I was calling his name, and he called ‘Mommy’,’’ Baldonado said. “He asked me if I knew his mom and his dad.’’

Baldonado said he hugged the boy and quickly carried him out to a nearby road. The boy was found about 25 feet off a road, with dense underbrush in between.

More than 100 people had been looking for Lagerquist since he went missing just after 6 p.m. Monday night. The family lives about seven miles south of Biwabik, or about 60 miles north of Duluth.

Searchers had been combing through swamps, thick woods and dense underbrush.

“You have thick areas, open areas, rivers and swamps. And the swamps are horrendous,’’ St. Louis County Sheriff Ross Litman said just hours before the boy was found.

Heather Kothbauer of Superior, Jacob’s cousin, joined the search with her husband, Jeff, early Tuesday. She said the family was thankful for the outpouring of support.

“He’s an outgoing, curious, 6-year-old boy,’’ she said. “The number of searchers is just great.’’

Jacob lives with his parents, Ted and Missy Lagerquist, a younger sister, and Ted Lagerquist’s parents.

Josh Larson, who lives about five miles from the Lagerquists, joined the search about noon.

“I have a lot of nephews the same age,” Larson said. He and seven other searchers spaced themselves 30 feet apart and walked about a mile.

“There were lots of little ponds, lots of old junk cars back there — lots of places he could be,” said Larson, who is taller than six feet, was wet to his knees.

Thank God.

I hate it when "missing person" is in the post title. We're still missing our friend that I posted about on the hunting forum. frown.gif This is the third one I know about since joining HSO and the first to be found safe.

Wow, I guess me and Junior will be having a little more of a serious talk tonight about following the dog into the woods. To see that was the reason he went missing sent a little chill down my spine.

My brother and I as kids went into the woods one spring because we could hear frogs. I was 6, he was 4. We spent a good part of the day chasing frogs. Came home after several hours to find the neighbors and the St Louis Co. Sheriff at our house grin.gif. We got our (Contact Us Please) kicked by my old man in front of the sheriff. This was the early 1970's when parents could still do that

If you are talking about Leanna (Beaner) Warner? No sign of her at all.

Good to hear this one had a happy ending!!

      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

      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.
