      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 .

i was out last nite doing the same thing i do all the time,got the radio on, cleanin up the house, put a little wood in the stove and all of a sudden a hear the brake on my pole start to squeal. thank goodness i didn't have it set to tight, so i dash over to my pole and set the hook! game on! after this fish swam around the other line in my house and about 4-5mins later with my knees startin to shake, the hook straightened out! don't know what i had but it was big and all it did is take take take line.

know that i've redone my lines i start to fish again, and again i get another bite, 16" wally, another bite, 16" wally, looked like brothers. another bite, 14" wally, looked like little sister, another bite, 16" wally and it went that way all nite until it stopped snowin. one fish about every 10-15mins. even had a half dozen perch in the mix.

kornfish we need to hook up so i can help you out with your problem! (no eyes) and metrojoe let me know when you can get another day pass! later DOGG

Way to go Dogg, Sounds like you had a little action. Perfect size for a walleye sandwich.

House still at the same spot?.

Let me know when you’ll be out there. I’m booked Saturday but either Sunday or Monday is a possibility. Probably should get out there when the bite is hot. Drop me a mail or post here what your plans are. Hopefully this cold snap doesn't shut them down.

hey Korn and Metro i'm thinkin the next nite for a good walleye bite well be... you can meet me at my shack and yes it's still in the same spot Joe. i'm free by two most afternoons and to the shack 2:40ish. the bite has been good from 3:30 to about 5:30 then it shuts down. let me know if you can make it that day monday and i'll give ya a call or email with directions.

if you don't know what you're doing but somehow are in the right place at the right time you can still go without catchin any fish, just ask the guy in the house next to me! lol later DOGG

Perfect timing. Hungry fish. And, of course, nothing beats practice. Just ask a doctor, they're always practicing.

i was wishin for a little more action tonite but the wind was a bit strong, the next two or three nites should be some good fishin with this warmer weather. good luck to all the readers out there, later DOGG

Thanks for having me out there DOGG.

even though I had to suffer and watch you catch the eyes, it was sure nice seeing someone was getting them. I'll be trying your tricks this weekend for sure.

I didn't do too well last night for the crappies after I left your shack. One crappie and bunch of gills. Changed the set up over for eyes with the rattle reels around 9. had a nice eye on right after midnight. Then the fat lady sang and I lost it trying to turn it up the hole. frown.gif

      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.

      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?

      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.

      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.
