      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 .

I did some research on Onalaska and from what I can find is that the ice is decent 8-11", and guys are catching panfish but are having to do some sorting.

I know alot of guys go out by Shaffer's. I think it is a bati shop, and also quite a few go about by the sailboat harbor.

That is all I can tell you. A guy I fish with fished there alot in college. I will try talking with him some and pick his brain.

I've seen a lot of guys who walk from Airport Beach out around the point near the interstate.

I haven't really ice fished it much but I plan on trying sometime this winter so if you hear of something let me know and I will do the same.

Shaffers is a bait shop on Brices Praire, just little north of Onalaska. Last time I was there they were catching bluegills and crappie in 8' to 10' ft of water out in front of the shop. There are also some fish cribs in that area but I don't know if they are fished in the winter, Shaffers will have a map and the info you need.

P.S. none of this info is first hand I have yet to fish the lake in the winter, just what they told me at the bait shop......

I fished out of Shaffers one time about 3 years ago. Bait shop guy was helpful with info and the map. We moved around quite a bit and didn't catch much. Lake was very weedy and shallow where we fished. South and east of Shaffers.
