      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 .

was out on lake most of yeterday from 3 to 10:15

found a new hole in the floor where you and dale kicked up fish ,when snooks and myself were catching other kind.

watched a boat Alumacraft tiller,guy had all the same body language as darryl,hand on tiller,eyes on graphs and setting hook from site etc.same tight hole patterns he stays on, 30 to 75 foot coverage,very typical of the guy we know.

from 65 to 100 yards away they are doing the walleye stomp and i just figure its he.

We are really having fun, catching a lot of fish ,and after 1 and half hour decide to try something else they come in by us and we find out he has a clone,tall skinny guy that fishes just like him.'In the heavy clothes he was wearing it couda been him.

X marks the spot[twice]

Got a couple new spots to show you and they are really small spots that I hadnt used before.

Fishing in the cold front yesterday was super,the walleye stomp is on

LB,just let me know when your coming after this week.

I try to fish a little every day and only have 3 days planned for sure next few days before LCA.

If you want will give er a whirl.

The lake is here to get people on it.

Kinda neat cause kids sports activitys are all ending today.

Been going to 5 to 7 days a week of these and it really frees up time to fish.

Last spring did couple hours day or more 45 days in row fishing.Right upto middle of July.

Took this summer and fall off to finish building house and fish.

Wife says this is ok and so did kids.

Jeeze I love my family

Just heading out to last softball game of year.

good luck

Hey that is what I did last summer! It really makes this summer tough having to work all the time. With the cold front coming in I don't think I'll spend much time up there this week. I will be up a few evenings next week. (Wife permitting) grin.gif

There are many Crappies and Big Northerns in green, just have to do a little searching, little homework for the lake. I suggest try by Park 5 or by the lone tree.

Well I battled that wind on Monday. Can't believe that I was catching 3" perch in 18' of water, found a few eyes muching on them. I had a 18" cough one up in the well.

What is the story with the Banquet/rules meeting Friday? There wasn't a lot of info given about that? How long does it usually last?

LB,dinner is the part of banquet that keeps you in house.

Lots of teams seem to like to wait until that night to drop by and register.

Some prizes are drawn for and you can go from that.

I am not on rules committee and do not know anything else other than its a good little hour and a half.

legion puts on good food so have fun.

If you are coming up again this week let me know,am fishing between ball games.

lots of boats were out this weekend so I didnt go out for very long.

and with that hush is the word

I actually got to prefish the weekend before the tourney for the first time in 4 years. I left all my previous year waypoints on shore and went looking for new stuff. Looks like it paid off. On Sunday and Monday I caught more walleyes on Green than I did all last summer. It should be fun if the fish are there next weekend. As always I had the mixed bag of bass, perch, sunnies, and Northerns. I also boated my personal best Largemouth and Smallmouth this weekend.

That 18" bullhead (Iowan walleye)is the biggest I have ever caught! wink.gif

Sounds like a good time, are kids welcome to the banquet, or do they try to keep it just adults?

I don't think I will be making it up again this week. The Mrs. has me working on Landscaping tonight and tomorrow, and Thursday I will be getting the camper ready. I hope to be parked at West Rich by 2:00 Friday, and get some short time on the water before the meeting.

I fished Green lake, Sunday and Monday, Sunday the smallies were in the shallows (northside). Some guys even keeping them for dinner. Monday, forced to fish southside, all the fish were 20ft or deeper. I also caught alot of 4-7 inch perch, even at 25-30 ft. Several nice smallies on plastics, only 1 19inch, walleye. But thats OK, I have a guy from New York coming just for the smallies. I may get on Green again this weekend. Since the tourney is going, launching may get in little crowded. Can we park in the swimming beach lot in Spicer? I was told, it was off limits to boat trailers.

LB should be around sometime friday,dropping boat off to get some work done in few minutes[GRAPHICS]will leave my cell number at Westrich for you.

Jiggin,the beach parking lot is off but 6 public landings make it a bet you will get a spot to park.

County park #5 the campground landing is quickly becoming a parking favorite,besides landing they have Live Bait,food,fuel and campsites.

Jiggin,J had a small Heart deal,last saturday,talked to his wife yesterday.he will have stress test tommorrow.

      Had another good weekend of fishing.  Fished Thursday evening to Saturday afternoon and found consistent action all hours of the day.  Caught 5 slotters 22-25", and was able to be picky on eaters, only keeping 15-17" walleyes.  Plenty of small eyes also, plus I caught 4 eelpout. I did learn a lesson on how to take eelpout off of the hook.  I tried to lift a 20" pout out of the hole by line and the hook pulled out and embedded the bobber in my styrofoam ceiling.  The next time I used the fish pliers to lift the slimy fish out. Had 10" of ice where I was, and a lot of large wheelhouses were being pulled out there.  Yesterday someone drove a Jeep out to a wheelhouse close by.  I think we will see a lot more vehicles driving out in the next week.  Fortunately the added weight hasn't pushed much water on top of the ice.

      Thanks for the info guys.

      I think the fourm would still be pretty strong....however when they split the fourm sites up & stuff and changed some things a few years ago it pretty much killed this site. Traffic is a crawl.....they blame it on new media like Facebook and other stuff......which is an excuse.....poor one at that.......the other ice fishing website I go to is stronger then ever.......This use to be my favorite site, today it's in sad shape & I only come because I remember what it once was hoping that it gets back to it someday.

      Big Marine had 8" at the north access out to the weeds before the main lake.  Lots of walkers, a number of wheelers.  5 inches past the weeds above the ice before the island.   Access was crazy...very inconsiderate people tripple parking, a guy I was with got parked in, trucks behind and in front of him.  Luckily I was parked beside him and was able to move enough that he could get his truck out.   Fishing was very slow.  Couple panfish, a bass and snake northern.

      I'm definitely itching to get on the river.

      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?
