      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 .

Hey guys,

coming up the second week of june. going to keep the kids busy with some daytime pannies. love to get into perch, gills, but what's the story with cass on crappies? generally in mid-june, have they left for deeper water already, should we look to kitchi? our previous lake, we would catch crappie in a portage lake in 35+ fow. as always, i appreciate the feedback.

Windy, the cubbies will be stout this year too. should be an interesting year in chi-town.

Many times there will still be some late spawning crappie still hanging in the shallows or just off the edge. Kitchi is a great lake to look for them in. I don't fish it much for crappie but know a lot of folks that do quite well. On Cass the SW corner and Allen's Bay are your best bet. Andrusia is great for crappie too. Near Joes Lodge and the bay on the North end of the lake.

Good luck

Buck Lake is awesome for big Sunfish and rockbass.Also if your lucky fish the docks on the south side of Buck you'll find a few crappies but look out for the owners of the docks,they think they own the lake.the docks also hold the big 10" sunfish.Just my 2 bits.Good luck.

I think I said this on another post, if your catching and know where to go for 10" gills on a certain lake why would you post it on a fishing forum?

Just my two cents worth!

You can get into Buck lake via the channel that connects to Cass. You shouldn't have any problems getting through that time of year. Just trim up the outboard and take it slow.

The only access that I know of on Lost lake is the right-of-way access off of mission road. Might be a little tough getting a boat in there.

You will love Lost lake...it is one of my favorites!! I will fill you in on it in private as I don't care to destroy that small lake talking about it here.

Brian,

Make a mental note to tell me about Lost as well. Deb is staying at Horseshoe this year and I plan on maybe renting a boat from Clark for a day to hit Lost. He has that $40 special for 8 hours including the gas and you know what big spenders us boys from the Windy are!!! Hope all is going well down on the farm! Hope the little one is doing well in school.

Windy

      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?

      Miss the old days too shaky, we had some fun didn't we.  I don't miss working on the lake tho.

      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
