      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

Recommended Posts

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.

      well we finally got our home computer back so it sure is nice to be able to type again instead of using the phone.
      The wind were wicked Monday night but by the looks of it this side of the lake held together so that's real good news.
      Lonnie and his buddy braved the winds yesterday and headed out ,they managed to get 7 of there 8 but it was a tougher bite then last time they were here on Saturday.
      This weekend is going to be crazy up here as I have had quite a few inquirers about lodging on shore. Buddy Hillmen may have something but he is tough to get a hold of as he is busy building that mammoth house.
      We ran into a hiccup on blue thunder and have a part we can not get off to replace. I'm hoping Tom can come over and button it up. as Devon worked his butt off to get er done. You could see the disappointment in his eyes, Blue thunder is my work horse and I'm feeling the pressure of getting her up and running..
      Our new used lake truck may show up sunday if all goes well. Its name is Cheyanne "I think that's spelled right. It blew a radiator in fargo and is arriving on a trailer .
      Old Minnesota is the only house that I have not detailed as I also had some major work on her that was ignored while I was trying to break 80 at the golf course this summer. Every one have a great thanksgiving and if your coming up here make sure you check in the resort your going out of as they have been on the ice everyday

      I've got 6- 8" on my home lake. I've heard reports of 3" on Eastern side of Fish Lake from High Banks Resort-Blue Max.

      Idiots   I am heading up Friday I will be walking out don't have to go far for good fishing this early
    • ZachD
      If I remember right you used to have to get a license a while ago before they changed it to the if you occupied it rule. I don't think 14.33 a year is going to break anyones bank. Hopefully they use the extra money for stocking purposes
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Yeah looks like the 2nd weekend in December if we're lucky before you can ice fish this area. Going to be another late year on the ice.

      Next year you will have to buy one for wearing long underwear or pac boots.

      Love the reports Smuts. Looks like another great season. Keep it going!
    • slammer
      It just never ends in this state.  Tax, tax, tax.  Where does this money go?  Whats next?   A tag for your vehicle to drive on the ice?
    • leech~~
      Fun for some folks that went exploring early ice from a few years ago. 
    • tfin
      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
