      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 .

How much ice is there now? Would it be safe to drive a 4 wheeler out to the deep spot? I've only been fishing there for a few years, so I'm not too comfortable driving around the lake.

I was on buff. on Tuesday and ther was 8-9" but I was only a few 100 yds from shore out form the court house. I put out a house with a 4 wheeler you should be oaky if you stay near shore. Thay say 8" is good for a small car but you will not see me out there in one till there is a good 12" of ice. The middle of the lake has some deeps holes where the ice tends to be slower at forming so if you go out there be safe.

There's decent spots on all sides, I wouldn't be in a rush to join the gaggles of houses in the usual spots. The craps have been biting the same in unpopular spots are they are in popular spots. In fact, the geographic definition of the infamous "Courthouse" spot changes every year out there based on the lemming packs... Don't be afraid to plot your own course on Buffalo, you'll probably enjoy yourself more as the party heats up out there. The ice is pretty uniform everywhere, except shore inflows, at 10" or so in 20 FOW as of Thursday. I try to stay away from the traffic lanes away from the premature trucks on the ice... Good Luck!

Well.......I went to Buffalo this weekend. We are pulling our house off of the lake. There are some real (Contact US Regarding This Word) out there. Sunday there was 3 full size pickups within 10' of our fish house.

So how thick is the ice now? Last time I was on Buffalo was last Thursday (it was quiet then), and it was 10".

I watched the Buffalo Lake madhouse on Sunday from the comfort and safety of my house (my real house, I mean) in sheer amazement. The worst days of the year out there are the weekend days between Christmas and New Years holidays. I suspect this Fri, Sat and possibly Sun will be repeats of yesterday.

With 160 lakes in Wright County alone, it's a good idea to find somewhere else to go during this week. smile.gif Once all the vacations are over, it'll get back to relative normalcy.

There's between 11-12" as of Saturday. I just can't believe that there's any fish left in that lake. What are some other alternatives that you would suggest? I'm thinking Mink/Sommers.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      get a guide for a day

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.

      Eden prairie purgatory lake is full of carp. You can see them from the dock or the bridge.

          Orvis has some awesome tutorials on their web sites. They teach at whatever level you are in flyfishing. I've gone there many times. They've also got an awesome app with fishing reports including wwater conditions, fly selection and hw to fish it.       Check them out and good fishing.

      I didn't fish any walleye this weekend- only bass. I would fish Friday and Saturday mornings from 530-830 and caught half a dozen largies in the 3-4lb range on a spinner bait. I just got my Garmin fish finder with sideview which will hopefully help me better locate the walleyes. Del, were you marking fish as you'd go over them?

      Latest Landing gossip...... First hearing in trial was july 25th.   Judge took motions under advisement. In the mean time, since none of the locals would work there, they imported a bunch of people on H2b visas as seasonal workers and put them up in a little house in Cook.  Charging them $285 per month.  Like 20 people in the house.   Now many have quit and found other jobs, and some also found other places to live.   They have to hang on since they need to wait until their scheduled airplane tickets.. which they also had to pay for.   That's the news from the Laundromat.... Believe it or so what.
