      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 .

Thinking of a possible trip up to the big V (east end) next weekend (16th) and wondering how the fish are biting? Anyone having success? I'm not looking for your spots just a general idea of how the action has been and what depths/structure is key to target on right now. Thanks guys!

FL,

The walleye bite has been slow the past few days but we are still catching a few fish each day.

We iced 8 fish today in 24' to 26' of water.

most of them on small jigs baited with crappie minnows or a minnow head.

We also caught a couple of fish on tip-ups and sucker minnows.

So a pretty similar bite to a few weeks ago, eh? Still targeting edges of reefs I assume? Do you find that the eye fishing picks up on Vermilion as we near the end of the season...so it can only get better???

Thanks for the reply Cliff. FL

FL,

Very similar to the past couple of weeks. Still targeting the bases of steep drop-offs.

I have a couple of 12 foot sand flats that I want to get to but have not had time to try them this tear. Last year We did very well there!

Usually the bite does get much better close to the end of the season!

Have the day off tomorrow and am coming up from Hibbing. First off, are you still able to drive out from Mckinley Park and would the 25 feet mark be a good spot to set up for a few hours. Thanks.

Went out from the campground today and fished from 9-1:30. We had two very light bites and nothing else. We were in about 25 feet. Even though we did not fair too well on the catching fish part of the trip, it was nice to get out and relax for a few hours.

As you all can see this is my first post. I have been on the site for a couple of years but just never had a question because someone had already asked it and it had been answered. My family has had a place in Greenwood Bay for about 6 years now and I am heading up this weekend. Haven't been there in a few. Is the ice getting thick enough where I will need an extension for my auger?

Neptune,

Welcome to FM/HSO!

You will not need the extension yet. There is around 27" to 30" of ice now.

      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

      @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
