      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 .

Well I went on another Bison skull hunt today.. I guess we did pretty well... man that was a fun time.. You would not believe what you find when you take the time to explor the sand bars. Thanks to the RP, I am able to get to the stretchs of river no one else can when it is low enough to find horns and skulls.

Yeppers.. I know the areas that I have seen signs of bones in the past and when the water gets real low, these start showing up if you know where to look. Some are even still in the water. That 3D Huminbird side imaging sonar is the bomb. Not to mention the River pro to get me there. Many spots I was running through 2 inches of water.

Man fishing must be slow... grin.gif

Thats Rockin'...I need to get out and do that! I love to do that kind of thing, just never get the chance, or always have something else going on. You know how that goes!

Did you get most of those from the Red Lake River or the Red River? I found some bones while pre fishing for Cats incredible this year on the Red, but no horns or skulls.

You said you were running in water as shallow as 2" inches? Heck, you don't need a River Pro...I can "run" in water as shallow as 1" inch...Just not with my boat! grin.gif I really am going to have to get a River Pro one day when I actually have some money? wink.gif

Talk to you later.

The most fun part is just taking the time to explor on the new sand bars and it would shock you what you find. Stuff that has been there for MANY of years just waiting for human eyes to gaze upon. super fun for kids, collecting rocks and all sorts of cool stuff.

The OSLO area has always been a good place to look. We've always found them in a place where it makes a big eddy during high water and eats part of the bank away after the water drops we go back and take a look. sometimes we find afew,sometimes we don't find any. lots of fun though.

      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?

      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.

      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
