      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 .

How's the Winona bite been recently? Has Lake Winona produced anything this year?

I have not fished on Lake Winona lately but have been fishing some other spots in Winona. The past few weeks have been very slow for me. I think this could be because of this cold weather. Anyone else having any luck?

Where is there a good morning bite in Winona? I might try getting out early tomorrow or sunday.

I was on airport lake Sat. morning, just enough going on between the few flags and the bluegills/crappie to keep you interested. Tried it again Sun. afternoon and managed a few bluegills. The panfish are still suspended in 22 to 25 fow. A horizontal presentation seemed to work the best.

Thanks for the info. I'll probably be out there this weekend. Mn City showed me tons of baitfish last night, but not one bite.

Is anyone driving cars or small trucks on the ice at Bartlett Lake, AKA "the airport lake" yet? I am heading up there this weekend, and will post a report of what I find for fishing.

And, could anyone give a report on what the ice is like below the lock and dams at Fountain City, Trempeleau, or Dresbach? I am going to check those out, too, if it is safe to walk on.

I found 13 inches of ice and several full size trucks driving on it. Slow day, 3 perch. 2 10 inchers and a 6 incher. I nearly had a big dogfish. The six incher was floating in the hole, couldn't get back down. I caught it out of deep water. This big dogfish came up through the hole and scared the #2 right out of me. Then he had a hard time getting back down.

I was out at the airport lake Sunday morning--drove my half-ton truck out with no issues. I had no luck with a tip-up, nor did anyone else that I saw. The bluegills were a little picky, but I picked some up before noon, which is when the bite really slowed down. Released two or three that hit 8" or over, kept eight in the 6" to 8" range, and threw back some smaller ones. No crappie or perch.

I found 4" to 8" of ice (depending where you looked) below the lock and dam at Dresbach Sunday evening. A few guys made the walk across the channel to the east side, but I was not one of them. The bite there was slow--one 12" sauger, and a 12" walleye. I didn't see much caught by anyone else.

I planned on going back to both places today, but the weather forecast sounded pretty bad, so I stayed in.
