      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 caught a 32" channel last year spring. Weight?? I didn't know they got that big. I heard ones that are bigger per my buddy. Cut sucker, shiner, shrimp. Oh one time these 12yrs kids were schooling me using leeches and actually broke his rod on a big ol kitty. He was so ticked. I did get a leech and caught a lil one and that was it. Just wasn't my day I guess. Another time my other buddy Bill caught a 8lber on a crankbait. You just never know - but it's a nice lil chocolate river

Catching a lot of catfish, in early june up to June 10, then all catfish biting stopped and the carp and bullhead are the more dominant species now. I have caught 5, 4+ Pounders, all using nightcrawlers, that has been my best bait. Throw your bait in the middle of the river in the current and wait for a hard tug. Lester Prairie. Largest Cat at 28", 8 LBS- 100_3520.jpg

Just recently I have caught some nice fish, the catfish are still there but not in the open they are now preferring the cover. There is a fallen tree that is holding some cats but there are lots of snags. Right off the bridge on the concrete I have caught a Walleye, and a friend has caught a decent catfish, that is where I got my 8 LB fish. The Walleye was 16", and 1.5 LBS. Jigging a Nightcrawler right off the side. I'll post a picture soon.

Fish From Crow I Have Caught This Year Through June

Ever get any smallies? I know they aren't many in there. I did get one small smallie a few years ago. Hook and worm going for cats. I've also heard rumors of 10lb walleyes to.

I've fished the Dam in Hutch a couple times this year, and caught a Estimated 2 LB Smallmouth, surprising but before I bent down to pull it out of the water the hook came out. Also where I fish I have never heard of a Smallmouth in my part of the crow. In the fall and spring in the area I fish I've heard of anything from 13"-23" long for Walleyes, so about 1-4 LBS. I've only caught one this year, it was 16", but last fall I caught a total of 4, but all in the 13-14" area.

The river has it all, I've gotten smallies(4lbs biggest, walleyes (2-27inches in one day), northerns, even a muskie. The big cats or carp can wreck your real. I use almost exclusively a floating orange rapala.

Where I fish cats are your best bet of a gamefish, bullhead and carp can ruin my fun, unless im going for carp. A walleye is a bonus for me.

The Grebe

We've fished the Crow alot over the years. We used to get a ton of smallies in the river below Burnings Mill, walleye, cats, pike, you name it.

We also got a 9 3/4 pound walleye out of the Crow river near Rockford....got 2 fish that day, about a 10" walleye, (me)and my brother caught the hog. When I came across the river to see what he had, I thought he had a big carp on the stringer.

We have several fishing holes on the crow and we get walleyes now and then, although nothing as big as "The Hog" as we usually refer to it. Lots of little stuff, with a good sized eater thrown in once in awhile.

Every now and then we will get a smallie, but we haven't gotten anything big.

      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.

      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
    • Wanderer
      @leech~~ There was all of 10 inches where I was but I’d say it was a tick more.

      Thanks for your input, I got myself setup with braid and a fluoro leader and its working great!

      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
