      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'll be out the next two mornings. Going to do some hunting and work on taking the blind down. The ducks will be safe, I have a hard time shootin straight with the tears in my eyes. So hard to say goodbye to yet another waterfowl season.

Last week all of our ice had left and a good amount of divers came into the area. Got 16 ducks on Sat and 6 on Sun. Mostly goldeneyes, bills, mallards and butterballs. Quite a few swans and fish ducks hanging out. Starting to look like most of the birds have come threw here.

Good luck, be safe

I took a day off from those sneaky deer today and hit the big waters for some divers. My friend and I met on Leech Lake to try out some new waters and found a few birds. Bluebills and Goldeneyes primarily, with some Buffies and big Common Mergansers moving around. Nice to see some big ol' bluebills in the face again in the stiff winds to our backs. grin.gif

Not a lot of ducks around on the big lake, but on my way home I did see divers on about every lake I drove by in areas NE of Brainerd.

We are short lived for migrations I think. Most of the birds seemed to have moved on.

Water temp was 33 degrees on Leech. One big cold front could end it very quickly. wink.gif

I'm hitting the Rainy River after a dentist appointment this morning. I've been chasing deer since Wed. and it's time to get after some birds before I head back down to school tomorrow. Fresh 2.5" of the white stuff fell last nite so I might be needing the white camo. Rumors are there's been geese and mallards out there, but I'll see for myself today.

Lots of mallards and geese still out in the west part of the state. We flushed the biggest flock of mallards that I have ever seen out of a field pond. Maybe a thousand+??? It truly was an awesome sight, just like a picture out of Ducks Unlimited. The question I had was...how the heck to they not fly in to each other??? smile.gif

The geese and the mallards played the game this past weekend. We had great shoots both friday and saturday. You can't beat it when there is snow on the ground and birds in the sky!

      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?

      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
