      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 .

Fishing Out of Izaty's Thur 16th - Sunday 19th w/ work crew - Eyes ?? Smallies??

Recommended Posts

Roadhunter

I have never fished the South end of Millacs before for Eyes or Smallies.. My time has been on North end by Wealthwood / Red Door & mainly early in the year.

Anyway - I'm not looking for any secrets - just a little info if possible.

I will be fishing with some co-workers from out of state and thought that I should drag my boat & poles up and see if anyone wanted to wet a line; post compact meetings.

Day Time fishing (I believe) will be our only option.

I really do not know if the Walleyes are bitting at all ( and if crawlers on spinners is the best option ) or if we should look for some Smallie's on live bait or cranks.

If walleyes are biting and the slot is an issue - That would not be an issue for us; as catching would be a priority and keeping not an issue.

I'm sure a few from MO and futher South have never had a Walleye on their line.

No Secrets needed - But I would accept a few helpful suggestions if any body has a direction or any past weekend experiences.

Thanks in advance - - -

You have a enought time the fishin has been slow but still catching fish. Spinners and crawlers gold hammered blades been workin for me and trolling shad raps with bottom bouncers in 20-30 fow all my fish been caught during the day just had to work for the fish I caught. I Don't bobber fish just troll but i'm sure you can catch both walleyes and smallies under a bobber with Leech's on some of the rock piles.

The walleye bite has definitly slowed the past couple of weeks but you can still get a few. Like stated in the last post, some of the rock piles on the south end are a good bet for both. Slip bobbers with a small jig or plain hook and a leech. You'll find some perch in the same areas. I'd fish shallow for the smallies and fall deeper for the perch and 'eyes, although you'll get a mix in certain depths at certain times. The south end can be great.

Gentlemen - Thanks for your info. I will get 2 or 3 poles set for each and be ready to go. I'll put lighted bobbers on just in case we have the opportunity to fish at dark.

Thanks again

      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?

      Roughly 11inches... there were a few brave people who drove mini vans out

      @leech~~ There was all of 10 inches where I was but I’d say it was a tick more.

      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
