      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 .

Good to see you here, Chad. Also nice to see what your career will be. Responsible law enforcement officers who are dedicated to protecting the resources and use good judgment are always needed. It was a career I considered carefully myself, but was too selfish in the end. COs spend WAY more time pursuing the violators of game and fish laws than enjoying the pursuit of game and fish.

Welcome. grin.gif

Are you also a VCC football jock?

Oh come on Steve, cool.gif

Other than the Junior College players being bigger, faster, stronger, far greater skills, and meaner, it's exactly like high school football! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

you are definately correct. i thought it was going to be a lot like high school too or hoped it would be. much stiffer competetion and bigger faster players who love to play. definately a step up from high school.

I guess you all took me pretty literal. Until I reread the comment asking if he played football, i took it as someone boasting that they were a junior college football player, and i thought it was funny, just because its a junior college. So i made the comment about high school football only because its not like division 1,2,or 3 college football. What I am familiar with and who I know has made junior college collegiate programs were just above average high school players. Sorry for the whole comparison scenario. I am sure you are a talented football player. Far better than me, Im just a basketball player, ha ha, can't take a hit. So anyways, all done with the sports blogs, and onto the topic at hand.

There are a lot of guys playing CC sports that could play D1,2 and 3 football. Most of them didnt have the grades to get a better scholarship.

Mn. doesnt have CC scholarships but in many states they do. I have played against a lot of guys with the abilty to play D-1 or D-2 but didnt prioritize the schoolwork.

In Mn. CC sports arent as good as in other states but still better athletes than high schools.

I played at Fergus Falls CC (B-Ball) way back in 85 for a year then went to UMD and UWS. I had guys at FF that would have easily made the starting line up for any team in either league. The WIAC is tuff. Enough said.

Hey whens the WALLEYE opener anyways? Posts like this wont be seen come opener.

there are quite a few guys who are going to play at a higher level next year that i played with this year. Most of the guys came to vermilion to play football. me and very few others played just because we could. my original intent in going here was for my degree and sports second. a lot of these guys were inner city boys who never had lived in a small town in the middle of the wilderness. these are guys that have never seen frogs and snakes before and were freaking out about them the first weeks of practice. Also didnt understand how cold it got here and never experienced walking on a frozen lake before.

walleye opener is in just a little over 6 weeks. too bad school is done 3 days before that and have to go home to southern minnesota before

      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?

      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
