      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 .

Who wants to go to BSL on Sunday?

Recommended Posts

fishuhalik

I'm heading up to Big Sandy on Sunday early morning (4:30-5:00) for a full day on Sunday, going mainly after tullies but maybe a crappie or two. Any takers? I live in Plymouth and we can take off from my apartment, meet somewhere on the way, whatever works. I'll cover most/all of the gas, if you wanna throw in $10 I wouldn't turn it down. I have a ford contour, so I can fit 3-4 full-size guys in my car somewhat comfortably, w/ gear in the trunk.

I wish I could say yes to that but I wouldn't know if I was able to go until Sunday. More fixing cars this weekend so I won't know if I could go until I am done repairing stuff.

Had some of the best panfishing of my life. Caught almost a dozen sunnies over 9, and 1 over 10"plus some crappies (3 over 12") mixed in. Worked the north shore from the Big sand bar. The guy we were with knew where to go, but I will say we were a ways from the crowds. You'll catch a few crappies in the crowds, but look for a spot at the base of the break in around 20' of water on the north shore, and you'll do OK. If you dont mark fish in the immediate area, DRILL MOVE DRILL MOVE DRILL MOVE. The key is to find the unpressured fish and pick them off. THey're getting hit pretty hard, and are getting a little skittish.

I will do that. It really would be awesome to get outa town for a day so that would be sweet. Plus I got a smoker now and tullibies are great smoked. I will let you know when I know. Gotta fix Mom's car first so that will determine the weekend for me depending on whats wrong.

midcoast, it depends on the day. I've done really well on jigs that a guy on here makes, I can't mention his name since he's not a sponsor, but they're tiny, tiny hair jigs (1/80th & 1/100th oz.) sometimes with a waxie/spike sometimes just plain, no maggot. I've also heard of guys that do really well on small pimples, diamond jigs, fiskas, etc. If they're not eating sometime, keep switching til ya find the trigger

Feathers Rainin

Fishaholic I have a shack in McGregor and I was thinking about going up and hitting a trout lake near there Saturday and hit BSL on sunday. If I don't go up tomorrow or Saturday morn I would love to come up and hit the ice with you Sunday or we could just meet there on Sunday. If you can we could do both days and stay at my shack. Shoot me an e-mail if you have an interest and we could figure out a plan. youngpetera@gmail.com

feathers, I may be able to take ya up on that, only problem is I have to watch my son at least most of the day on saturday. I'm gonna try to talk my sister into watching him in the evening, my wife's working, and we could maybe head up then. That way we wouldn't have to wake up at technically 3:30!! I'm emailing you my number, call me sometime this evening, after about 7:30, I should be there. If I'm not, just leave a message and I'll call ya back.

Well I am gonna swtich gears and do some open water fishing instead this weekend so I won't be going. I usually ice fish until the bitter end but I feel like standing on solid ground and catching a cat.

      I was out on Hiniker Pond last night. Had no luck with fish but I was after dark. Straight out from the pier about 30 yards you got a solid 3.75 to 4 inches. Duck lake has about 5 inches. Henry had 4 inches last week. Not sure about this week.

        Doc was up there with a couple of his boys on Thursday fishing out of portables.  He gave me a call when he was on the ice.  I said, “. Let me guess what you got on”.  Red stripe Demon with a female fat head hooked through the pooper hole on the dead stick and a purple smelt rattling flyer with a minnow head on the other pole.  I nailed it.  He still uses a jiggle stick for his dead stick.  He had to sign off as a fish came in on the Vex.  Put it in the bucket Shaky.

      Not even a little kelly? Lol   Good to see a few of the old guard still checking in ...:)

      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.
    • Rick G
      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.
