      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 .

Green Lake Stocking

Recommended Posts

primetime49

Back to stocking of walleye in Green Lake Spicer Mn.We will be updating you evry two weeks.As of today we talked with many persons and clubs over 50 miles away to 350 miles away.I have fished Green Lake 42 times this year daytime before 2:00p.m.Another has fished it 36 times from 7:30 a.m. to dark.Its probaly not going to help any but we are finding fish.Today I talked to a person that fishes alot on Green and he told me of pretty good success.I talked to DNR fisheries about a hour ago and he said that this years net count may be as high as 9 fish per net.He has not made the decision as of today if they ars going to write permit or not.We contacted walleye suppliers 15 minutes ago and they are making permit application early next week.As of now their are a significant number of walleye fingerlings and carryover available locally and we do not feel worried about private availability.As far as DNR stock and availability we wont know for several days as they are just completing thier study and putting together their recommendations.Locally they are going to bring it up to state fisheries and try to give us an answer when I contact them back in two weeks.Still plenty of time to act on this so wont get impatient but like I said we have made the move to apply for stocking privatly as we must move on.You will know this project as ANGLER MANAGEMENT 101.Our mission is to control the angler within by offering a good fisheries as is possble .

primetime,now you say you have talked to many people from 50-350 miles away about stocking green but you still can't tell any of us locals a contact name and number in case we want to help out? you impress me,. you can be coherent enough to type in this world while you are still living in another one. primetime , shoot us some facts, not your b.s.

Enough talk about walleyes and Green Lake. Lets get a lake around this area stocked with Muskies. There are plenty of lakes in the area a person can go to to catch walleyes...Diamond, Florida, South Long, Ringo, Norway etc. We are lacking a Muskie Lake in this area and I think it is time to focus attention on that. Currently, if you live in the New London-Spicer area, you have to travel over an hour to fish a Muskie Lake.

I'll second that muskie vote, we have many lakes that could handle them. But then again that would just start the crying from the anglers that only fish walleyes saying that the muskies are eating all of the walleyes.

Screw it, lets stalk muskies instead of walleyes on green! Might as well have it all there.

with the large populations of perch, sunnies, and small largemouth bass in green,right now would probably be as good a time as any to try to get the muskies to take off in green lake. there aren't as many large pike in the lake right now (comparing it to 5-8 yrs. ago) so i wonder how muskie would hold up?

searchin we talk to persons from 50 to 350 miles away about their lake stocking ,they could care less about Green lake.Didnt know my two weeks were up.Others involved will be at public meeting when held in September.You probaly know most of them.The question you have probaly answered already is you want to help.cool.We are waiting to see the local fisheries report on age groups,increased netting counts and how many fingerlins and carryover they are prepared to stock this fall before we proceed.One thing we want to be is supplemental.if they use our funds just to pay for fish they already planned on stocking we could have just as well have bought pheasants or took another fishing trip or something that only benefits us.I always figured that paying the fees for lisence boat registration and other taxes would be sufficient enough to make sure they do the best possible job they can do.Like I wrote while being coherent as possible September,and yes now I am off,two weeks actually fishing and raising a little hoopla in my other world.It should be great.Yea MUSKIES would also be a great addition.

EsoxCop, I think the best place for muskie stocking would be the river north of New London. Lots of hammerhandle pike for them to feed on, as well as the other little fish. The water is shallow enough that it would warm early to have a good bite starting in july. With miles of water, would make a great start.

We got a couple off Miltona in late June/early July but lately we've only raised a few. It's been pretty slow

      A boat and trailer are two separate pieces of equipment.  The trailer is titled and the boat isn’t.  You can have one and not the other for any amount of reasons. The wheelhouse is one item and titled, hence the plate.  Shelter tags primary purpose (besides raising money) is to officially verify who is responsible for it.  You can do that with a plate number. Is what it is.  But I’ve just been having more difficulties considering the license fees as just another drop in the bucket.  If ALL the money was used for managing wildlife and habitat I’d have an easier time with it.

      We caught em between 17' and 27' off a shoreline point. Definitely had more action in our shallower holes though.

      Got out today on Niles Bay. We had 4.5" to 6" of good clear ice. Only one walleye between the two of us but the tullibee and whitefish were on a tear. Even got a nice bonus pike! Hoping to dial in the walleyes over the next couple days.

      First ice fishing trip today out of morson ontario .  Fishing  was a little slow got a few walleyes and a couple of crappies . Lost what little  snow we had today made the ice really  slippery. Found 9 to 11 inches of ice.

      Dang Curt, did you take my suggestion on a drone?  Great report.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
