      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 .

Glenn, my group decided to fish Rainy Lake this entire past weekend.....I didn't make it up to the cabin and fish. Rainy Lake fishing was slow on Sat and a little better on Sunday. Got some eyes, saugers, perch and other "bonus" fish. From a weather perspective, it was a great weekend to be out on the ice.

This weekend is still undecided (as I scribe this message) as to where I will be fishing. I have some people interested in heading up to URL and LOWs for the entire weekened and others that would prefer to fish more "locally". If we are going to be local and stay at the cabin, I'll let you know.

Regardless, on one of the days, I would try hitting Cut Foot for crappies.....search and look in McAvity Bay (deep water) for suspended schools and/or try searching straight out from Narrows public access in 28-30 feet of water. You can also pick up sunnies and perch in this same area. Another option would be heading heading over to Little Cut Foot for crappies and sunnies during the daytime. If perch you are after, Winnie is the clear choice.

By the way, where is your place located?

I have heard many locals comment on how good Peterson lake used to be (key words) for huge sunnies. I've never fished Peterson.....do you ever give your lake a try in the winter, or are the fish far and few on Peterson today?

If we fish local this weekend, I know we will snoop around in Cut Foot during one of the days. In the past, we have picked up some nice crapps in the McAvity bay area. I'll look for your truck as you describe and stop to say howdy.

As I mentioned before, my seasonal shack is on Lake Paglaroni (pag-la-roni) near Bowstring. Funny, most everyone has a hard time finding my place. grin.gif Seriously, I'm on little Jessie. It's nice and peaceful. If I don't run into you, good luck on your fishing adventures this weekend.

The access on the north end of the lake--off of CR35--has been good. I haven't seen in the last few weeks and may have become wet and sloppy during our past warm up period. You still should be able to get out just fine.

      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?

      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
