      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 .

Lone Wolf and Montana Decoy

Recommended Posts

Doop

Hey guys,

Anyone use Lone Wolf tree stands or their climbing sicks? How do you like them?

Other question is about Montana buck or doe decoy....anyone use these? I've read the reviews on Cabelas website and most seem to think they work well but durability is an issue.

Can anyone help?

I gave 2 lone wolfs and love both! I have the middle sized hang-on, perfect in ever respect plus I have the alpha sit and climb, another exceptional stand but the seat is a wee bit small but its still good enough to sit in for a long sit. I usually stand for about 5 minuts every half hour to hour and I am good to go for all day if I choose. Sorry but I don't know anything about decoys since I don;t use them. I carry enough gear anyways, I don't want to have to worry about all the safety too.

The lone wolf treestands are the best that you can buy, You really do get what you pay for. The best stand on the market hands down.

I also have a LW stand. I have the Alpha. I bought it last year and its been fantastic for me. My buddy bought one too. He's got the sticks, I don't. Not for any reason other than I already use the Bucksteps.

My son uses only LW stands and after i had own stolen this past archery season, I will be replacing it with another LW. Many climbers will get the job done and they all work. From my experience, LW makes a very nice stand and yes they are probably the highest priced on the market.

I don't have any experience with the LW stands, but I do with the Montana decoys. The first time I had a deer come into my decoys using one of these, the animal totally froze up and eventually bolted. I couldn't figure out why until I went down later to "relieve" myself, and in walking back to my stand, my decoy caught my attention and almost made me "relieve" myself again in my pants!! The thing was way to pale or light colored, looked like a ghost deer or something like that. My home remedy was to use some brown rit clothing dye and tone it down a little bit. Now it looks very good, and I haven't had that problem again. I am not sure if they have changed this at the factory or not, but just a concern of mine.

      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
