      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 .

Was out on Washington last night and a guy told me a house was stolen off there in the last week. Not sure what day, but the guy said it was a home built house, not manufactured. For those that haven't put a hitch lock on, now would be a good time to do it.

Thats why I don't leave my house unattended out on washington at night. On christmas eve I had my house out on german and decided to go out for a couple of hrs and when I pulled into the access, there were 2 guys drilling out by my house. no big deal right?, but by the time I had my four wheeler unloaded they were looking into the windows on my house! At 2 oclock in the afternoon in plain view from the hwy and the access! Some people have big

ba!!$ . I'm just glad they decided not to come back once I left that night.

My buddy put false flooring in his shack to hide any thing he wants to leave in it. Plus he has a hiddin lock on the wheel drop. That I spent three hpurs looking for while fishing. It was a good idea. But he had his stolen of french 2 years ago. That was after it got broke into 5 times. Thats the reason why I've never bought a perm. You can't trust people.

in my thoughts what you take on the lake you take home that whey there you don't have to worry if your house is going to get broke into. That just sucks when that happens cause when you get out there and you want to fish and you have nothing. been there done that, and that why i fish out of a portabe. I have a little one growing up and i'm thinking really hard about buying a perm just to get him interrested in the sport but this is what scares me...

I was told that some houses got broke into off of the north landing friday night. I'm not sure how many, but if your house is out there you might want to check it.

Seems we go through this every year. Best way I found to keep a permanent safe is leave the curtains pulled open so a would be theif can see what is in your house with out the effort of breaking in. Next leave nothing of value in your house. If they see nothing they will generally do nothing.

My thief protection is no curtains, small windows and a dead bolt on the door. Leave nothing worth stealing.

Also, Neighborhood watch is the best medicine. If you see something fishy, drive over and check it out. If the felons know that the houses are being watched by the regulars the move on. My buddy saw a truck at night driving around to different houses, he hopped in his truck and bee lined it over. They saw him coming and jumped in their truck. He swung in behind them long enough to get a license plate number. Deputies found quite the haul in their truck and in the shed at one of their parents.

      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
