      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 & Chisago Lake

I called the CO for this area with these questions but he is on assignment for two weeks out of the area. Does anyone know if you can hunt ducks on the south end of Green Lake in Chisago County? What about the middle to southern end of Chisago Lake?

Mpester,

Yes you can hunt the south end of Green Lake. I've been doing it for the last 4-5 years. Slim pickin's the last couple years but we usually get some shooting. As far as Chisago goes you may want to call the city and see if they have any special ordinances. When they annexed all the property around Green I called them and they told me that they had no regulations and the DNR regs were all that applied. As long as you are in the water and partially camoflaged by natural vegetation you should be fine.

Wrshog - Thanks for the information. I think the same probably applies to the south end of Chisago but I better call the sheriff. The south end of Chisago Lake is not in the city boundaries of either Chisago City or Lindstrom so the same rules will apply as in the rest of the county.

I just got a new Alumacraft Yukon and I was thinking of trying these two lakes on weekdays this season. I bet the competition for spots on the weekends might be heavy and the numbers of early fisherman on the weekends may be too many to be safe.

This weekend I am going to take the new boat on these lakes to GPS some spots for duck hunting, do a little fishing and break in the new motor. I can not wait for 9/30 to get here. Good luck this season.

Mike

Mpester-

It's not too bad on Green after pheasant opens. In the past I have only been able to get out on the weekends and I have always been able to get a spot. The fishermen usually avoid the south end of the lake after opener. The worst we have had happen was a pilot learning to land on the water flew 100 ft over our heads for about an hour one Saturday. Maybe we'll see you out there this fall.

Although it is lighter during the week. The weekends are when the ducks really move around (More hunters)so there is normally more action. If you can find a spot where the ducks are flying into in the evening then that would be a good midweek spot.

Yes you can, I grew up on that end of the lake, watch out for the south island I have fallen though it a few times there are a few soft spots on it,Also there was a new house built by the north island so you can't hunt the west end of it anymore

Thanks for the information. If I am looking at the correct island, the west tip of the island is 257 meters from the closest land to the west. The island I am looking at has a few trees on it. That is far enough away to hunt but the east end of the island looks like a better spot. I see a very small reed island (maybe a real island on the air photo) to the west that may be what you are talking about and that would be too close. I think I will fight the crowds at Pelican Lake in Wright county for opener but I will give Green a try later in the year. If the hunting is slow, I can always pull out the fishing rods. Good luck.

If you do go out there make sure get to the boat landing early those islands are a hot spot for all the locals, It is not uncomon to have people hunting on all 3 island but the good part is the ducks like it out there also, Take care Mpester have a good hunt.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )
