      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 .

TrashDux, What's the crowd levels, particularly in Nov.. Also do you have to be worried about the State line? Is it easy to tell where it is?

Lake onalaska is entirely in Wisconsin. The Lake itself holds a lot of ducks though most of the area that holds the birds is closed to hunting. Wisconsin hunters get a lot more shooting as the north end of the lake is open to them. There is an island (Dresbach Island) on the MN side of the boundary though it gets very heavy hunting pressure and success is mediocre on the best day. I've hunted it a few times in the last couple years and have had poor success. The only reason I hunt the area is because I grew up there(Dresbach) and enjoy going home once in a while.

The boundary is very well defined, a very evident channel of water about 100-200 yards wide(actually was the main channel at one time), though the wisconsin hunters sometimes get confused and hunt the MN island.

Thanks for the inf. Bog. I'd love to buy a Wisc. Lic. and give it a try, But time and $ won't alow it for a few years, at least. Doesn't Wisc have a split season that stays open into the first week of Dec.? Sounds like Golden Eyes, Mallards and geese, FUN!

Yep, I shot a golden eye there last year though it was the only duck I shot there last year, and I think it was wounded when I puddle jumped it! There is some fair hunting on the MN side along the river from Wabasha to the Iowa border but it is a hunt of chance. The successful hunters on the river either hunt alot or they get lucky and hunt the days the ducks are flying. There are many days on the river that you'll not even see a bird in the open hunting areas. I have it figured out a bit after 25 years of hunting the river bottoms and can pick out the 3 best weekends to hunt and go fishing the rest of the time.

      This year?   It is new this year.... Apparently a lot of businesses are having trouble hiring seasonal employees.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them
