      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 .

No deer yet for us, the snow is good to show how many deer walked down our footprints!

My Ripley jinx is still going strong.  Everyone in camp has seen multiple deer except me.   Two nice 8 pointers have hit the dirt but all other small bucks and does are still walking.

I’m almost considering seeing how many days I can deer hunt this year and not see one! :D :cry:

Standing corn around here is hurting us fairly good. We did see deer last night. Moll decided to pass on a small buck. 

Lost most of our snow cover overnight with the rain.

good luck guys.

The kids still have tags as they havent gone out since yesterday morning.  I guess they didnt want to hunt in the rain.  Or wake up this morning!  Fools.  Mom and Dads tags are now full with a doe and a spike.

Well the jinx is off thanks to a fawn.  I’m pretty sure it’s mama got shot on their way toward me though.  At least I know my eyes still work.

And I think I saw @leech~~out in the boonies when I went for a Wanderabout.  If it was, we could exchange some parking tips.

Not sure where you were but if you saw an Orange Popsicle in a tree that was me this morning.:cry: I had every stitch of clothing I brought on this morning but the breeze coming off the swap just wouldn't stop! I've been warmer fishing on my sled on Burntside at 10- then today! :crazy:

Not all bad, my son put down some meat heading to the butcher in the morning.  :)

Congrats to your boy. :cool:

Cass County Road 55.  If it wasn’t you it was your brother from another mother.  Or one of the Wahlberg boys.

My wonderful weekend was ruined by a crazy neighbor that decided my hunting land was his and the DNR had to be called out to deal with the drunk...well they could have gotten him for many issues but gave him a hunter harassment fine for $500.  Well that was at 11am and by 4 pm he was pretty well lit up and came to the property line and started yelling profanities at me for a good 15-20 minutes wanting me to come to his house and find out what happens and "I can see you in the tree up there in your orange suit!!"  Which started getting me concerned so I called the DNR to come back out.  Well they caught him walking across our land in the direction of my truck and in his possession was a bowie knife, hatchet, and a machete hiding in his pants!  He was arrested and spent under 48 hours in jail and was released.  Needless to say I can no longer hunt that land for the fear of being hunted while hunting.  Sad as I feel the psycho won by getting what he wanted and the land that I hunt to himself.  Puts a sour taste in my mouth and wanting to hunt...hopefully I can get rid of the taste but Sunday hunting just wasn't as enjoyable as it usually is.

when you are surrounded by swamp and ag land that you have no access to, I guess he feels that since he lives there full time, he should be able to have free rein of the area.  I guess I will now go north to the Crosslake area and try to see what I can put in the freezer.  thanks for all the comments!  It is a sad deal to see hunting land become off limits for unforeseen reasons but now I must adapt and maybe I will end up finding a new gem although there aren't many corn fed deer in Crosslake as there is in Princeton! Good Luck this weekend to all!!

110 acres mostly ag land...it is my buddies land that he has reserved all the hunting right to me.  After the incident though he said just give the guy his space as it isn't worth getting shot over and he doesn't want that to happen on his land.

There sure isn't a lot of action on the deer hunting portion of this message board; compared to the fishing part.  I get it, it is a fishingminnesota.com   Do people go to a different site for hunting ?

No, you’re in the right spot for deer hunting.  It’s just that season is pretty much over and ice fishing is heading into a fever pitch.

How was your season?  Or are you still at it?

      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?

      Thanks Guys.  Starting to feel better about may be getting the sled and porty out there.

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

      Roughly 11inches... there were a few brave people who drove mini vans out
    • Wanderer
      @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
