      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 .

Yeah,yeah, Davey Boy. I would have got it done with the black and blue crayons if I wouldn't have asked you for help. Now I'm all the way through red,yellow,green, and orange, and still don't have it figured out.

BKB....you've got mail.

you need bigger paper.

and you might work on that crayon grip, the caveman grip is real tough on the crayon tips, it's probably also why you keep tearing through the paper when you draw.

"ugg, me cronk draw plan in dirt with stick.... dohh!! cronk break stick again!!!"

I'll see about getting a spot cleared in the shop for your seasonal lake home project.

later!!

Tell us about the ice Jon, I understand you are the last of your kind, the last in an ancient mystically gifted string of land dwellers directly descended from an Encino era shaman known as the first ice whisperer... You have the gift, tell us what the ice is doing? What's it thinking? What sort of plans does it have for us this year on LOW? How will it form? When will it support us for the first hole fishing in the pine island area?

I didn’t get the shop cleaned last night cause I was working on my (Contact Us Please) plow truck, truck is ready to go now though.

So when we get your lake mansion built we can keep your ice road clean.

The Great Lager Spirit appeared to me in a vision last eve with news of an unblemished sheet of ice as far as the eye can see. One that is freezing uniformally, and will bear the tread of human feet as early as tomorrow. But alas, the vision came with a warning. If the land dwellers abuse or neglect this precious gift, large cracks and ridges are destined to form along routes to most bountiful fishing grounds.

Excellent.

I will respect the great spirit & obey it's wishes.

I may also leave gift of tobacco at the foot of the great totem pout monument for safe passage & fruitful fish harvest.

We made a version of your pout totem a couple of years ago. Had a run of pout in one spot and had quite a pile of stripped pout so we made what we called "Pouthenge". Turned into quite a work of art before the next storm covered it.

      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
