      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 .

Your not asking for much are you?

All the lakes in the Chisago lakes area have decent populations of fish, and some size to them as well... Big Marine lake probably has the best for numbers, but not size...

as for location.. your on your own... I would search out green weeds with deep water near by.

If you are thinking about going to Lake Fremont, check out this story from the Elk River Star News:

Lake Fremont allows open fishing

Tuesday, 22 January 2008

Open fishing is being allowed on Lake Fremont from Jan. 15 through Feb. 15 because low oxygen level is endangering fish life.

“We had very low oxygen readings yesterday and today,” reported Eric Altena, assistant area fisheries manager for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, on Jan. 15. He said the lake’s aeration system will likely allow some fish to survive but noted “there are fish dying on the north end ... due to low oxygen.”

Signs have been posted at the public access and at the north end.

Open fishing means unlimited catches by licensed resident anglers in any manner except for the use of seines, hoop nets, fyke nets, or explosives.

Go there Biff and drive the north road and check out the little back bay that the culvert runs into and you will see all the devastation that is left on top of the ice......big carp and lots of little bullheads!!! I have only seen 2 people fishing the actual lake part in the last 2 weeks.....

Wow....That lake used to be really good for Pike, straight out and a little to the right from where the culvert ran in there. To bad for Fremont.

Fremont Lake....well, you can stick a fork in it, because it is done.I spent part of the afternoon out there today,and the fish are gone.I fished 4 different sections of the lake with nothing to show for it.There is at least 30 inches of ice on the lake right now.I did drive the north road when I left, and saw the channel that was chiseled in the ice by the culvert.Dead and frozen fish, carp I am assuming, were on the ice by the chisled out area.A local guy who was driving by, told me as I was unloading the atv, that he had seen carp and bullheads floating in the open area north of road a couple of days ago.Not good. Oh,well.At least it might mean bigger fish in a couple of years.

      Hi Cookie,  a buddy and I are going up this weekend.  Will they bite much after dark or is the water too mucky this early.  I appreciate any info.  Thanks

      Yesterday the MN DNR announced a license requirement change effective NOW for this ice season. All Wheel House and other fishing structures which cannot be folded / collapsed must be licensed even if you remove the house when you get off the ice.

      Harvest climbs 16 percent from 2016 Minnesota firearms hunters registered 161,057 deer through the third weekend of deer season, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  Preliminary results through the third weekend show that the number of deer registered was up 16 percent from 2016. Of the deer harvested, 53 percent were bucks, compared to 63 percent during the same period in 2016. In Zone 1, in northeastern Minnesota, total firearms harvest was up 36 percent. In Zone 2, which covers the majority of the state and runs from Canada to Iowa, harvest was up 10 percent and Zone 3, in southeastern Minnesota, was down 5 percent. “The conditions were generally good for hunters participating in the last week of the Zone 1 season and for the start of the 3B season in the southeast,” said Erik Thorson, acting big game program leader, “which provided a boost to the statewide firearms harvest.” Based upon the number of antlerless permits available and the number of permit areas that allow multiple deer to be taken, the DNR is projecting the 2017 total deer harvest to be around 200,000. The 2016 total harvest was 173,213 and to date firearms and archery hunters have harvested about 180,000 deer this year. In much of Minnesota, the firearms deer season ended Nov. 12, and the northern rifle zone season ended Nov. 19. The late southeast firearms deer season is open through Sunday, Nov. 26. The muzzleloader season begins Saturday, Nov. 25, and continues through Sunday, Dec. 10. More information on deer management can be found at mndnr.gov/deer. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Applications due by Saturday, Dec. 16  The Department of Natural Resources, the Metropolitan Council and the Greater Minnesota Regional Parks and Trails Commission are seeking qualified applicants to serve on the Parks and Trails Legacy Advisory Committee.  “The Parks and Trails Legacy Advisory Committee plays a critical role in helping us achieve the vision Minnesotans have for use of the Parks and Trails Legacy Funds and creates an accessible and equitable, integrated system of state and regional parks and trails in Minnesota,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. The purpose of the committee is to promote and coordinate implementation of the 25-Year Parks and Trails Legacy Plan. Funding recommendations for individual projects is not a part of this committee’s work. The plan can be found at on the parks and trails legacy plan page. 2018 will mark the 10th anniversary of the passage of the Legacy Amendment by Minnesota voters. The committee is planning a series of regional events during the year to celebrate Legacy accomplishments and engage Minnesotans on the question, “Why Parks and Trails Legacy Matters.”  Information about the events will be available in January on Facebook (/PTLegacyMN) and on the committee website (www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac). The deadline for applications is Saturday, Dec. 16. The committee is made up of 17 members, including, to the practical extent possible, diverse geographical and demographic representation. The committee has a mixture of park and trail professionals and Minnesota residents. Committee members should have expertise in two or more of the four strategic pillars of the plan: Connect people and the outdoors. Acquire land and create opportunities. Take care of what we have. Coordinate among partners. Terms are two years with the option of being reappointed for a maximum of three terms. Meetings are scheduled every two months around the state, with an option to attend remotely. Interested individuals may complete the application form online at www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac/member-application or print it out and return it to Paul Purman, Department of Natural Resources, Box 39, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN 55155. Anyone with questions can contact Paul via phone at 651-259-5643 or email at paul.purman@state.mn.us. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Big bay did not look to be completely frozen over yesterday afternoon. Broken up and refrozen by McKinley Landing. Cliff

      The wind today has eliminated the little ice we had.

      Thanks much Huntnfish and ZachD!!!  Had the wife pick me up some CCI 209 Magnum primers and seems to have fixed the issue.  Went out the other night and put 7 rounds through the ole CVA and didn't have a single hangfire.  I'm ready for the weekend.

      Is Big Bay completely frozen over yet?
