      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 .

The ice fishing season!!!!!

Sounds to me like you're conceding the walleye contest, which is no wonder, since you are a beaten man grin.gifgrin.gif

But yep, I'm anxious to get on the ice, and try for those rough fish some call trout! tongue.gif

Have you been doing any good lately??? Last time I saw you was in the bait shop when you stopped in wanting to have your picture taken with me, and have me autograph it. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Ha Ha Ha!!!

Yeah, I guess I will have to hand you the title for summer walleye... crazy.gif In all honesty, I haven't really fished much at all this summer. It has been crazy busy for me. Anyways, I am going to get some big walleyes once the ice starts forming! grin.gif I am usually good for at least one trophy size fish during ice season. You are going to have your work cut out for yourself once trout season gets going though. I will have nothing else to do from Jan 15- March 15 but chase trout. Can't wait man, can't wait!

Oh, by the way, I heard you were smack-talking the "Fish Master" when my uncle stopped by for bait awhile back. I told him to start going to Skubes! tongue.gif

Later,

Justin

Your uncle and I were in total agreement when we discussed you and your extraordinarily poor fishing skills. I have a friend for life. smile.gif

I happen to know stfcatfish's ancestors once lived in Ely back in the Stone Age. At that time the town was know as Elystone. Heres a picture of Fred Foss on his way to work at Miner's Pit.

After hitting a vain of water one day at work, the pit filled, putting the entire town out of work and the residents of Elystone dispersed throughout the country. Fred landed in Hollywood and by luck became a movie star with his own show called the Flintstones. While on the set at Warner Bros studio he meet and befriended a cWazY wAbBiTt. Thats leads to another story, some of you know it.

A little birdie once told me that there are really only about a dozen true Elyites in existence. Everyone else is just visiting! laugh.gif

      Thanks for the reply. Ya, McNally's gets pounded right away. I looked at the ice in front of Schafer's in Onalaska yesterday; there was about 3.5" of ice near the docks, and then it got thinner in a hurry. Apparently someone got wet feet there earlier in the day.  I ended up at Lawrence Lake Marina just north of Brownsville yesterday. There was probably 4" of good clear ice, much better than what I found in  La Crosse. Will post pictures later, but I got one nice largemouth on a tip up at the Marina, one 10" perch, and a couple small perch.  Today I drove around Winona, and fished the backwater pond east of Latsch Island on the west side of the road. The ice there was...not real good.  I stuck close to shore on 3" of not-real-clear ice after my spud bar saved me from a cold bath a little farther out.  I caught a few small perch there, and a bunch of small bluegills. Nothing worth keeping, and nothing on the tip-up. Was expecting the ice to be a little better than what I found, but what do you do?

      No Lake Trout in the lake?

      Thanks Guys.  Starting to feel better about may be getting the sled and porty out there.

      Westwind, Roger's and JR's that I know of. Not sure of the cost.

      Roughly 11inches... there were a few brave people who drove mini vans out
    • Wanderer
      @leech~~ There was all of 10 inches where I was but I’d say it was a tick more.

      Thanks for your input, I got myself setup with braid and a fluoro leader and its working great!

      Hey all, I am looking to catch a decent perch in the 7" or bigger range and soon because in my class at school we get to taxidermy a fish and I would like to do a yellow perch, I have fished little Pulaski for 2 days and Buffalo for one and caught nothing on Buffalo lake and some bluegills and bass on little pulaski. Anyone got advice on spots in little Pulaski or Buffalo lake or just another lake near by Buffalo as well for perch? Thanks - jim
