      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 got there about 11:30 and i ended up about a mile back in line. First day i only saw two does about 60 yards away , walked right under another hunter , he must have been only after bucks. Second morning sat and didnt see a thing untill noon then for 20 minutes all hell broke lose , saw a doe and fawn come in from the right just out of range at the same time a doe and fawn were moving in from the left. A nice Buck was following that doe. I tried my hardest to convince the buck to come my way but he had his doe. I thought either way i was going home with a doe or buck. But in the end they all went the opposite direction and i never got a shot, i moved my stand to where they all headed and didnt see a thing. If i remember right i think the first day they got about 148 deer largest only being 213 . Couple nice bucks taken one the main beams looked like they were almost touching. I didnt see the deer i usually see up there not even driving i seen only 1 deer driving out to the stand the entire weekend. And the buck i saw wasnt chasing the doe just following real content like. Didnt see any bucks with real mass taken just the normal. Im not sure what was taken the second day i forgot to ask when i left. Anyway i had myself a good time , im sure others did to .

Another long weekend in Camp Ripley. I think must know I'm in the woods because I see more deer in woods I hunt normally than I see during these hunts mad.gif

Hunted with 3 other guys in our group and hunted the middle of the camp this year. Found a real nice place Saturday morning and proceeded to hunt there all day. Lots of sloughs and ridges to hunt on. I only saw 1 doe there, but the others saw plenty of deer.

My buddy got a nice 8pt buck that went 171 pounds on the scale. grin.gif

Sunday we drove around and hunted a spot we found last year and had the area all to ourselves Sunday night. I think between us all we saw 3 deer that afternoon-evening.

We (group) finally got one under our belts and have a confidence spot. We just have to work on getting closer to the front of the line next year smirk.gif

      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
