      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 .

Sweet. Also, do a search on here as this topic has been on here a few times and people have shown some nice ones. I think you'll have to buy some if you want actual drawings. Otherwise, check out some places that sell accessories or brackets for them. They may offer free plans or ideas along with their product. I know if you do a search for shadow hunters llc and elevators you can find some cool stuff. I am building an elevated platform for one of my pop-up blinds next year using some ideas off there.

this was in the New York Mills Herald last week (small town in west central mn).

The paper wants to do a feature on local deer stands in an upcoming issue.

I'm all for a little comfort, but that's getting a little carried away. Why not just get a deer hunting video game, and stay home. I'm not trying to offend, I'm just a little perplexed.

It's gorgeous, but I've never had one spot I'd want to spend that much money on. I want to sit in a different stand usually morning & evening of the same day. There's so many good places to hunt I just can't see spending that much time & money on one.

I could see it, I guess, as a stand/cabin on your hunting land. Kind of a once a year kinda deal. Go up for gun season to a honey hole that produces every year. One guy gets to sit stand mah jal and the other guys sit in the other stands in the property. Why not if you got the time and resources.

I wonder if they have a building permit for that thing. A buddy of mine was on the local township planning board and he said one year a guy came in and got a permit after the fact to build a stand. He needed it since any structure that costs over $1000 needs a permit.

He is waiting for the flood waters to come. He can tie up his boat and stay dry. That is crazy. I am just looking for something with a roof.

How can someone build a structure like this and I can't even have a little shack by a lake for storage without getting "hit".

They need to make rules about these shacks. They take away from the beauty of the land, and most are permanent. Their needs to be more rules (laws) set on these.

Why bring the comforts of home hunting? But, I am one of these people that think camping is only camping if you are in a tent. This, to me, is not hunting.

      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?

      @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
