      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 caught 8 there last w/e, and went out to the 50 ft hole yesterday, and got only 5. All crappies, no walleyes. I got one eye, on early ice out front of BJ's, but have been unsuccessful since. I have seen them on the camera, just can't find the trigger that will cause them to bite.

Just got back, lots of lookers, no takers. Still had a good time though. My 3 1/2 Y/O came with, and she just loves to fish. She said we have to go out tomorrow and try again.

Sooner or later you'll get into them. From the # of posts you've put up and the time you put into those Clearwater crappies- you better land a few sooner or later grin.gif

I think the lake has a ton of potential, and I am not willing to give up on it yet. Just need some decent weather to do some scouting. AI work outside all day, so I am not as prone to go scouting in the cold after work.

Hey Any Fish

I was thinking about towing my house to clearwater Friday night with the wife and some friends. Is it safe to drive out? Just want to get out for a evening close to home.

I have never fished out there before. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Plenty of ice to be driving on. I was out on Jan 2nd with some buddies and there were permanents and big F250 extended cabs driving on the ice. So for you to head out there, no problem.

Anyfishwilldo- What is the name of the bait shop that is located right on the lake??? Whatever it is, stop in there as they will help you out on tips for present bites and where to set up.

Tight Lines!

BJ's Bait Shop. If you drive on at their access, they charge $3. If a person has a 4x4, and is cheap, the public access about 1/4 mile from the shop is safe also.

SNOGOOSE I would start out front of the bait shop. There is deep water there. Try to find as deep as possible, (Ive found 48)that is where I have seen the most fish on the camera(walleyes). The crappies are hanging around 25-35 fow. I have yet to find a night bite, and have had my best luck between 4 - 4:10. Good Luck.

      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?

      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

      @leech~~ There was all of 10 inches where I was but I’d say it was a tick more.
