      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 .

Check out wilderness warmth out of cove. Great roads to get you out a ways, wheel houses can be pulled out with vehicles. Talk to jay,amber or Brandon for some advice.

People driving out of appledorns. Spent the night out there, alot a trucks on ice. I was about two miles straight out of appledorns sunset bay resort. Nice roads and about 12" of ice. Lot of 1/2 ton trucks where I was fishing. Plows were going further out when I left. As always check with resorts before you go out with vechile.

Are they driving out of garrison sports yet? I want to get the house out next weekend but I saw how close to shore the pressure ridge is this year and want to wait until they get the bridge out. How much ice is out of garrison right now?

Would double check on Wilderness Warmth and Cove. Jay said ice was NOT good with flooding as of a few days ago. They are not pulling yet. A guy died off the point last year (maybe year before) so double check. Jay does keep up nice roads on the weekends but they often are not plowed during the week.

judging from last weekend, there is a chance in you know what that you'll be driving out of garrison sports. I went out of there last weekend and it's pretty crappy ice. the ice is actually o.k. but it's all slush on top. I went with the wheeler and couldn't get any farther than garrison reef.

Drove off of Wilderness Warmth last Thursday. They were pulling all the big houses out and plowing roads all day. I'm not sure how far out we went, but it was at least 1 mile.

      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?

      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
