      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 have not been to green in years, how is the crappie slot working out. I was thinking of heading there 2day or 2morow. Any ifo would be appreciated. I will be taking my snowcat and pull my otter out. May bring my boy out if there is a decent bite! Thanks

All the small sunnies you could ever want, and the occasional nice crappie.

Never fished this lake before last year though so I couldn't tell ya if the slot has affected the crappie size in any way.

A lot of crappies under 9 inches, but like mentioned, if you stick it out you'll see a few over 9 with some reaching 11 inches... make sure you upsize your presentation though, it will help you weed out the smaller fish and hone in on the larger ones. Stick with artificials too, it will make a difference... and fish the upper water column, the larger fish (and the crappies in general) are using that area more...

I will second what Matt J has said. The crappie bite has been good this year but the number of keepers is about 1:10.

Went out to green today 1/4/08. It was about 50/50 people walking out and people driving. I drove out and parked on the shoreline because the public access off of 24 was packed. Only caught 2 fish in 3 hours 1 nice bass 1 nice sunfish. Took pictures and released. I had my Aqua Vu and vexilar with. The fish just sat their and looked. I changed my presentation, Im not sure what happened. everyone else around me had the same problem. I was out at 3pm for the night bite.

I know a lot of guys get walleyes off Lindbergs Point, but its not a secret spot. I've done best looking for walleyes off the first break (being that the lake really only has one ;\) ). Fish seem to relate to the 12-18 foot mark fairly well. Smaller Lindy Flyer jigs tipped with a twister tail works well, or else a Do-Jigger and a minnow head...

Was out the 16th and can say it was quite a success!!!! Decided to fish 22-24' of water and found a mixture of fish. Fished the late afternoon bite and landed 3 eyes and a handfull of crappie and sunfish. Very fun day for my father and I.

Walleyes came from 24'. An aggressive jigged jig spoon w/ minnow head seemed to work best.

Crappies were very agressive from 4-5pm and seemed to slow down a bit after that. Plenty of small sunfish if you downsized your presentation as well \:\)

Rich at Mikes bait has his shack on Green and showed me the picture of an 8+ walleye he caught off Green at 7 this morning. Nice fat healthy looking fish. He said the crappies have slowed down but are still catchable.

Went out last night with my buddy. Didn't get to set up till nightfall unfortunately, my reasoning for not getting an eyes. we set up at 12.5" FOW away from the group set up on little green. Pulled some up off the bottom but no takers.. was using buckshot glow with minnow head, gemNeye with fatheads, and threw the chubby darter down there a bit too. missed the bite apparently. My buddy set into a heavy fish later in the night to have is line snap a second later, maybe better luck next time when we get set up before prime time.

I was fishing Green from 3:30 until 8PM on Sunday. I was getting a lot of 8 3/4" crappies with a few small gills mixed in. I got the call from the wife to come home so I said OK since I was only getting small crappies at the time. On my next three drops I got three 12" crappies in a row. This was one of the few nights fishing this lake that I got more than a couple of crappies over 9". It sure is easier to get keeper sized crappies off this lake in the spring and summer. No walleyes on the tip-up I had out.

Going to head out to green this weekend and was wondering if anybody has been out this week.. I'm sure its been slow, but this cold snap is finally going to settle in the next couplde days and warm up a bit, should drop and steady the barometer as well, hoping this turns out to be some good fishin'

Was out on Saturday, did real well. I got 37 crappies from 8pm - 12pm, most were caught between 8-9:30. Got 4 keepers, 3 right at 9" and one 11". Also got a few little sunnies. Was on the southwest side of the lake in 6 fow. All caught on demons with waxies, wouldn't hit if the jig didn't have a good glow on it. Oh, and I bet we were with about 200 other people out there. Man what a zoo!

Was out the other Night until 1 am. Bite just kept getting better and better as the night went on. kept a limit and ate them already...YUM!!!

They sure were biting light, and it seemed like i had to keep switching up what i was putting down there for bait,

Switching from waxies to Crappie minnows

LNL- Over xmas break i noticed that the bite got better as the night went on too. It also seemed like the bigger fish were more active late than early. Congrats on the catch \:\)

Are the walleyes still active on Green right now? What depth are they at and what lure/bait are they hitting best on? Are they mostly at sundown or do they keep going will into the night?

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      any luck there? i've never had luck. hoping to break my unlucky streak soon.

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe

      There were 5 maybe 6 boats over at the resort Thursday - Sunday. Heard they were doing some hunting too. Pretty quiet on the bay, most of the docks & lifts are out. Probably going to get real quiet after you show up.

      1) Lumen (lm) Lumen is the international(SI) unit of luminous flux, a measure of overall light emitted by a light source. 2) Candela (cd) Candela is the international(SI) unit of luminous intensity, a measure of light emitted by a light source in a particular direction.
      Any given light source will have different luminous intensities in different directions considered.
      [candela = lumen/solid angle] 3) Beam Angle [Unit : degree] Beam angle is the angle between two directions for which the luminous intensity is 50% of the maximum intensity as measured in a plan through the nominal beam center-line. The beam angle of a lamp gives an idea of how the light beam spread away form the beam center. 4) LUX (lx) Lux is the international(SI) unit of illuminance, a measure of light arriving at a surface, 1 lumen per square foot equals 1 foot-candle, while 1 lumen per square meter equals 1 lux.
      [lux = lumen/m2] 5) Color Temperature / Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) A black-Body radiator will have different color when it is heated up to different temperature(in kelvin). The temperature at which the heated black-body radiator matches the color of the light source is the color temperature of the light source. 6) Color Rendering Index (CR) Color rendering index, ranged from 0-100, measures a light source's ability to reproduce the color of various objects being lit by reference light source, black body radiator (CRI=100) 7) Efficacy (lm/W) Efficacy is the efficacy of a light source to convert electricity power to light expressed in lumen output per unit power input (watt)
      [Efficacy = lumen / wattage] 8) Dimming Not all lighting products are designed for dimming function. None-dimming LED lighting product will cause unpredictable result and may affect the life time of the products. The below figure shows the typical input current variation while adjusting the DC voltage input to dimming and none-dimming product.

      I will check it out a little latter. It looks like a good idea. I do a small diamond wrap on a lot of my ice rods.

      I'm gonna go but not before some of these crops get harvested.  It may not be until Thanksgiving but at least I'll increase my odds if I wait for a better chance of success.
