      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 .

chisago water color

How is the water looking in the Chisago area? I was on pokie last weekend and the water had the green scum on top on the norther half. Is the same deal happening on the chisago lakes right now? This really doesn't seem to affect fishing much, I'm just curious. Also, any water temp reports?

Deitz would know for sure about Chisago. My guess is that it does have some algae going for it. Heck, I was on White Bear last night and it was pretty green for that lake. And, when does the Poke ever not look like pea soup after mid-June? grin.gif

I was out on South Lindstrom last weekend and there was the green junk on top of the water. I also noticed that on the north side of the lake it was about 71 degrees and on the south side it was 75. It has been cool the last few days so I woudlnt doubt that it would be around 71-72 threw out the whole lake right now.

I Might get out next weekend depending on if i get my lower unit or not....

Fishing was ok today mainly due to the nice weather. I did not find much for size today, but I did find a few fish. My biggest fish was a quick release 15 yards from the boat on a dt10. Most of my fish came on a spinnerbait. I did get a few decent crappies on the dt10 though. The deep water bite was not working today for me with dt10's. I did get a couple slow rolling spinner baits and working them around shallow structure. Water temp was 71 degrees and the water was green, but it does not have the green scum on top yet.

We had similar luck on South Center friday. Live bait did not produce as well as beetlespins. Caught some bass, crappies, sunfish and some real nice northerns on the beetle spin. My thinking is that the water is so green and the visiblity is so poor that the spinnerbaits cover so much water that it must come close to the fish and they go after it. Some of the sunfish I caught I tried throwing a wax worm on a flu flu and had no luck same with a mity mite.

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!
