      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 .

weekend report

mille lacs muskie bum

i was out with my family over the past weekend and fishin was slow but the weather was also bad. we ended up with around 20 eyes and ten keepers filled our limits. all kept were between 16 and 17 inches. only a few over and the biggest was 18. lots of small ones. three crappies between 13.5 and 14.5 were a pleasent sight to see comin up the hole. 5 perch and a few missed pike were also a surprise. the wind was howlin and drifted our trucks in. best bite by far was between 1:30 and 6:30 in the afternoon. only 6 eyes and two crappies were caught in the middle of the night. lots of lookers but not many takers. best lures were green and red frostees, red and blue rattling varmints, and a pink gamakatsu.

Went out of Hillmans in one of Pat Fosters houses on Fri thru Mon. between 4 guys caught 19 walleyes, 5-6 northerns, 5 crappies, 10 perch. Seemed like the bite was better when there was daylight. Maybe a hr or 2 after sunset then it was mainly the dead sea. 3 nights and maybe 2-3 reels went off??

Hey Johnny P how did you like the launch off the pressure ridge?? I thought it was a drift because it was all smooth from the snow so I throttled the truck and about 10 ft from hitting it I yelled "thats that ridge oh S???!! You guys were out fixing the road when I did it.

Stayed with Chad Benson off the south shore, Sunday to Tuesday. From noon on Sunday until 4 p.m. Monday it was SLOW. 4 eyes, a perch and a northern. Then at 4 on Monday, POW, it was like someone hit a switch, the walleyes became very aggressive. Didn't get much sleep monday night pulling in fish. Not many keepers, most were in the 19"-21" range, with 2 of them just under 24". A good problem to have. They boys were still pulling them in on rattle reels while my buddy and I were loading the truck. Made it tough to leave. Chad runs a great operation and I would recommend him to anyone.

You had some air on that one. I looked over and thought oh no thats gonna hurt. You had to be at a 45 degree angle as the rear tires dug in and climbed you even higher. Definetly something that should have been on tape!

      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
