      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

Recommended Posts

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.

      Looking for some folks in the area. Have you guys ever fished Borden lake near Garrison? I fished Maple lake last week with a lot of small crappie caught.  I let them all go, biggest was 9". Fished few lakes in that area with no luck. Even went to my little honey home with little succes Looking take the GF out tomorrow morning.  Any ideas? Seen someone posted about crappie in Pearl.

      I was out last Sunday and there was solid 3.5 black ice. It's been s week now so guessing around 6 inches in northeast bay.  All crappie I caught were small besides on 9 incher I let go.

      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action.

      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping
