      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 .

JR's Corner

Coming up this weekend and we'll be using JR's access. What is the best way to get there from Kelliher? Is there an address that I could use on Mapquest. Has anyone used the access recently? Thanks in advance.

72 N out of Kelliher and then take a right on 23. Then just keep driving until you see JR's. The road will change to gravel eventually and then it is a couple of miles after that. You will see a sign when you come to it.

It is a good place! A nice spot to clean fish and he will fry them up and give you a huge plate of fries for $5. Can't beat it. They also have pizza, beverages, showers, etc. I forget the access fee. Somewhere around $10 I believe.

I will be there myself this weekend out of JR's.

Good luck.

Was up to JR's last week and caught good numbers of walleyes before the cold front. Just stop in and talk to JR and he will tell ya where to set up. I like being able to take walleyes back to their bar and get em cooked up with fries for 5 bucks.

We caught all our fish on a dead stick, plain hook and minnow! They left the area after we jigged, so we left it up to dead sticks and rattle reels. Our game of dirty clubs rarely made it two hands without a fish being caught.

Coming up this weekend and heard from a buddy that a couple guys he knows got into some eyes out of jrs during the nasty weather last wekend. Has this area been fairly productive all year? bringing my brother who's never been on red just trying to get him into some action. Last year we went out of hillman's and did a lot of hole popping and pounded the slabs. wondering if there has been anything to speak of in this area regarding the slabs or is it the typical 1-2 mixed in?

If you have the fish cleaned there and Barney is doing the cleaning say hi to him for me. We play poker every week if he's back home. Just tell him it's the guy who always wins. He'll know who! Thanks!!

Coming up Sat-Mon. Is there shower's available down by JR's Corner, or do I have to head up to WestWind?

Also, renting a 4-man sleeper from Battle River Lodge, I assume Jerry will take care of a guy?

any reports?

Don't know about JR's, but Morts has showers, you don't need to go all the way to the east side for that...

JR's does have showers available for customers.

Out of 24 hours I think Jerry spends at least 95% of his time up at the lake. He comes home for supplies and heads back up....so I think he will take care of you! Let me know if he doesn't!! I'm sure JR sees him more than I do! crazy.gif

Just got a call from Jerry at 6:27PM (friday) and he says it's like an old timer used to say "some are catching and some are not"! One group is here for a few hours and they are doing really well...in a "hot" spot and others are not doing as well.

I forgot to ask on specific species...so presuming walleye.

      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?

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

      Thanks for your input, I got myself setup with braid and a fluoro leader and its working great!

      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
