      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 .

September Evenings On Chisago

Recommended Posts

JBMasterAngler

I'm gonna have a free day or 2 to do some evening/night fishing in mid september and I thought I'd hit up one of the lakes on the chisago chain...I'm leaning towards chisago, but am open to suggestions. Is there any general info I should know about these lakes that time of year?

like Matty said.. it really depends on what you are going to fish for... and what your goal is.. many of the lakes here have either catch and release regs or slots, so if you plan on taking meal home, and depending on what you want to catch...

100% C&R for me. While it's still light out I'll be fishing for bass and pike, but once the sun sets I'll be in search of the infamous walleye.

If your all catch and release... I would say at this point and time.. Green lake would be your best option.. however has the worst access at this time with the low water. Good bass lake, got some sumo pike in it, and probably the best population of walleye in the area... But also has a 17" slot on it... Chisago may be the best bass lake in the area, I have not done well for pike or walleye on it this year however... N/S Center has a fairly decnt poulation of wallley and some decent pike, but the bas fishing has been fair...numbers ok, but size not so much. Might also consider the Croix?

I got the croix penciled in for this month and october. From what you say about the lakes though, I think I might have to flip a coin to decide which one to fish.

You guys should know by know, its roll the dice, not flip a coin.

I have been fishing in the area a lot this year and have hit all the lakes multiple times. Everything Deitz said is dead on. I have done well for walleye on Green, but they were all pretty small, 12-15 inchers. I have tangled into some nice bass out there, but not as many numbers. S.Center has been phenominal for me for bass numbers but the size is down from previous years. I haven't really fished S.Center for eyes yet so I can't comment on that. And Chisago is near and dear to my heart. My grandfather owned two different houses on the lake and I grew up fishing that lake. Because of the slot/c&r reg, the bass are very nice sized. I have seen more than one 5 from the lake this year. Whatever the choice, have fun.
