      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 .

Turkeys??? Quick Help!

Recommended Posts

DLoutdoors

Well all, I am new to the site but thought I would throw it out there: My little brother drew a turkey tag for this area (From Fergus to DL) and the last two mornings we hunted hard: (Up at 4:30 and sitting in a blind until 9:00) without hearing a single bird! His tag is only good until Sunday and I thought I would see if anyone in the area of Zone 239 has any ideas of where I could put him on a gobbler. I'd be willing to trade info. or access to some turkeys... for access to bowhunting land (for deer), or a crappie or Muskie outing if someone wants. I am fairly new to the area and just can't figure out why we haven't heard or had a chance at a turkey. His license is only good through Sunday, so it's basically a Sat. or Sun. hunt for him. I will be with calling (I have decoys, blind, etc.) but wondered if anyone in the area could help me out. I would love to get him a turkey. (I plan to hunt the archery season at the end of May, hopefully by then the turkeys are back to the area we have been trying on.) Just thought I would see if anyone can help me out: You can email me at dloutdoors@hotmail.com or send a PM here. Thanks

What part of the area were you hunitng in? I also hunt in that zone but I am out on the far west side. We only got one jake but I saw a lot of hens and heard a fair amount of gobbling but I think they were already with hens and not interested. I could help you out for the bow season if you are interested. If you want you can drop me an email and let me know if you are going. I have access to private land and there is some public land that I am pretty sure will hold birds. I love turkey hunting and have been pretty successful with a gun but have not tried bow hunting for them yet. brian_anderson1@msn.com

      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
