      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 .

Good question...my wife and my opinions differ. So I guess I 'll tell you what the wife wants as she always gets her way.

#1 (to her) outdoor pool

#2 Somewhat private

#3 Other campers who love to fish and are ready to throw afew

back afterwards.

#4 Dock access

#5 Bathroom and shower room would be nice. We have one in our

camper, it (bathroom) is small, I am not.

You should check out Little Winnie Resort, it's not on da String but is a short drive away to the lake as well as many other good lakes in the area. They have an outdoor heated pool, dock access to Little Winnie/Miss River, and will be plenty of people around to throw a few back/[PoorWordUsage] after dark.

I have looked at Little Winnie looks good. I actually fish Winnie more than Bowstring just checking my options out. Looking very seriously at Highbanks Resort also...seem like great people. Whatever we decide it will be great to be in God's Country!

Hey Jake, I had not heard that Rocky Shores had new owners? For what it is worth the next resort down the lake, Bowstring Shores has new owners as of last Thursday.

Another resort that fits your "wants" could be Cedar Point on NorthStar lake. Good people, Good location.

Thanks Jake, have thought about it several times but the continued tightening of zoning ordinances and tightening of legal docking issues make it a tough venture. Our expansion of 10 new cabins last year ate up most of our allowable density. Now we play the waiting game to try and acquire adjoining land. We shall see......maybe some time soon.

      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?

      No Lake Trout in the lake?

      Thanks Guys.  Starting to feel better about may be getting the sled and porty out there.

      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

      @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
