      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 lived across the street from him before he was a pro fisherman.My dad used to build the sleds for him when they were made of wood for the fish trap and the vex caddie.he has never seemed to be stuck on himself. Istill see him once and a while and I would listen to what he has to say because I know the experience he has. if you dont care for his attitude . you still can learn a lot from him if you will listen.

I fished with him last winter as I am friends with his nephew, he struck me as a very nice, and down to earth fellow. He was more than willing to share any information he had. Even got to cross a 3000 acre lake with his bearcat sled, I have to get one of those four stroke sleds, it purred across the lake!!!

I thought his seminar was ver informative. When you are in the lime light all the time you seem to develop a huge ego but when you the average joe can look past that you can learn something. I did.I think I learned a lot and I have ice fishing for over 25 years and since I am only 33 that is a long time. I work in an EGO driven industry and have been accused of having a large EGO myself but that is sometimes what it takes to stand up in front of people and do your thing.

Sweet Dead, now all you need is a trailer! Now all we need is about 4 more inches of ice. We'll have to hit that big crappie spot when I get back from Winnipeg.

The sled sounds sweet, I'm sure shes fast. I just purchased a polaris sportsman 500 wheeler and can't wait to see what she'll do in the snow, it'll sure make it easier to be mobile. You been out fishin yet?

haven't been out to fish yet livintofish. Been to busy. the wife works this weekend so I'm not sure if I'll be able to get out at all. You'll be happy with that Polaris 500. A buddy of mine has one and it should have more than enough power for what you need. Just hope that we don't get slush ice like last year, or I'll have to pull you out with the sled wink.gif

Peter, if I don't talk to you before this weekend, good luck! break 14 so Noah can be jealous. We'll have to hit the crappie spot soon next week; there should hopefully be enough ice by then to be comfortable with sled.

      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.

      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?

      Thanks Guys.  Starting to feel better about may be getting the sled and porty out there.

      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.
    • Rick G
      Roughly 11inches... there were a few brave people who drove mini vans out
    • Wanderer
      @leech~~ There was all of 10 inches where I was but I’d say it was a tick more.
