      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 .

Resorts with Boat Ramps on West Battle?

Recommended Posts

RK

Hiya -

Anyone know of any resorts on WB with pay ramps? Have a friend coming up in a week or so, and with the public access ramps as shallow as they are he's worried about getting his boat in and out - it's a 21 footer with a bunk trailer. So sort of hoping one of the resorts on the lake has a deeper ramp he can pay to use for a couple days...

Thanks for any info...

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

None of the resorts on Battle have their own ramps...have to use the public access ramps. It will be interesting with a 21 footer and not much access use....I haven't had any problems with my bunk trailer at the shallower landings this fall though...

You might have to use the access on Co. Rd. 16 (east end). They pulled the dock today on the west end and had barracades across the ramp - not sure why. I tried getting in on the west end last week and there was so much sand on top of the concrete pillars due to the shallow water that I couldn't get the boat off the bunks. Another guy there as well with a bunk trailer and he couldn't get in deep enough either. They are getting boats in with roller trailers though. Unless they clean the ramp off a little (which I doubt), I would try the east end. If I get over that way this weekend, I'll check it out and let you know.

The east public access off County Rd 5 is the best bet. The west/city access is horrid and needs to be closed.

I have not had a problem with my glass boat/bunk trailer on the east access all summer, but I haven't been there in a month...

I'll be over that way soon and can report back.

The dock was pulled, but I don't see any issues launching a boat on the east side. The weather looks like it's going to warm up into the mid 40's or higher next week. Maybe the last chance at fishing before it freezes up. Water temps are cooold.

Rob, the only thing you need to look out for is that people have power driven their boats on to their trailers. They have done it more on the west end than the east. So when you start to back your boat out into the lake there is a sand/rock/gravel bar that you may back your prop right into. Very nasty on the west end, not as bad on the east but you still need to watch out. The prop wash gravel bar on the west end almost stuck out of the water late this summer. Props from peoples boats pushed up a gravel hump that almost covered up the tires under the dock. Lots of small softball sized rocks also.

      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?

      @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
