      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 .

Looking for info on Little LCO-Wisconny

Recommended Posts

We have a cabin rented on Little LCO for just after the first of the year.

I have a lake map at the ready but am looking for some insider info. It appears that there are some nice weedy flats that are located adjacent to some deeper water (which would be prime tip up areas) but any other info would be greatly appreciated! We are up for Crappies, Perch and anything with TEETH.

We have fished LCO (atleast the south end with moderate success) with tip ups in the past..Any reports on LCO would be greatly appreciated as well........

Thanks.............Jim

Can't tell you much about Little LCO but we've been getting a few on the big one. We tried to get out on a spot on the east end this afternoon but there was an inch of ice, 4 inches of water, then 4 inches of ice. I think you'll find spots like that all around the lake but some spots have 8 to 10 inches of good ice.

There was some snowmobiles cruising around the lake tonight and a 4 wheeler out farther, just have to be careful and pick your spots. Since you're not going until after the 1st, it should improve considerably by then but there is a lot of snow on the ice.

Most of the walleyes we've caught have been along the weeds in 6 to 12 FOW. You might find them deeper when you come up but it might be worth it to try in shallower.

Hope that helps.

For what it is worth, just had a guy from our group come back from there..Caught a few JUMBO perch (not many for the hours they put in) but they were the biggest he had ever seen...5-7' fow with just a lively minnow on a hook with a split shot..Also caught some decent northern jigging.. nothing on tip ups..They were pretty dead...

Biggest thing was the ice conditions. They had a four wheeler that was pretty much useless as the warm weather caused the snow to crust over and then it would bury the wheeler (even with chains on it)..So in short, had to walk and the fish were few and far between but the ones they did catch were pretty decent. Does anyone know if that road that takes you into musky bay (off of "E" I think) is public or private? It runs by the cranberry bogs and bring you out (to the water) where we always fish tip ups (at the entrance to musky bay)

Nope, but I've only lived here for 4 years. Originally from Shell Lake and moved here after the kids got out of school. (I work in Hayward.)

Yeah, I've fished it a lot over the years. Some nice muskies and smallies even some large mouth in there now (mostly in the bay.) We've caught tons of walleyes out of there but they depend on stocking, they don't naturally reproduce there plus they run a little on the small size. When the lake level went way up, the bluegill fishing really took off, lots of nice sized ones. Now the level is down and the gill population has shrunk considerably. You can still find them but they run smaller nowand not nearly as many.

    • We packed four of us in the blind and had a blast!  Just about ready to give up and gave "one last call" only to have the birds blow up not 30 yards away from us.  One of the gobblers rubbed against the blind for two feet as he walked into the deeks- pretty dang cool!  Ryan made a perfect shot and dropped the bird in his tracks.  
    • Ryan.pdf The pdf shows up as a link for me.  Is that ok Borch?  
    • Twins are 33-91 against the Yankees since 2002! Its unbelievable how awful they play against them.    Stanton absolutely murdered that hanging curveball for a HR last night.
    • I was looking for reviews last night but only found a handful and they didn't really give me that much info. They seemed to be overall positive reviews but all were written after recently applying it so no info on longevity. 
    • Stamped concrete looks great, but not very functional and it requires maintenance too, like every couple of years or so.   ....and how do you get the non-peeled, non-flaked area cleaned?  
    •   If you think about this option I would try and look up some reviews. I would worry about it peeling or flaking off over time and having to keep re-coating it a lot. Bonding could be a big issue.
    • This isn't my patio but its very close to what I have. I think sandblasting would likely ruin the texture and pattern.  I'd also have to reapply a clear sealer after sandblasting and the sealer is what makes it slippery. 
    • This just occurred to me....  I have no idea if it would work..   Could it be sandblasted to roughen the surface and give more grip?         
    • I've seen a lot of options for things you can mix into the sealer before you roll it on.  I may start out going that route since I already have the sealer and the additives are cheap.  I've got a non visible area I can use as a test patch to see how it works.  I don't necessarily need it to be equal to a broomed concrete I'll settle for at least non-deadly.    Hopefully i can figure out something, my wife hates how slippery it is and is threatening to have it all torn out (the really expensive option).
