      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 .

This weekend will be my first time ice fishing and I was hoping for some pointers from the more experienced anglers. I'll be heading out to Green Lake with some buddies. Any tips would be greatly appreciated (could range from hot spots, equipment, lures, etc)... Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!

If your thinking of hitting green by chisago, I would hit the large shallow bay on the south end of the lake. Please remember that Green by chisago has a 9" slot for crappies.

I second what Deitz said, Glyers Bay I believe is what it is called on the maps. Take an immediate left off the landing and head towards the big group of houses. There you'll find bass, sunfish, crappies, pike and an occassional walleye depending on where you set up. Most of that area is 5-8' of water and the panfish will hit most offerings. Pike, bass and eyes tend to like the shiners under a tipup. Small hooks and jigs with larvae, waxworms or small minnows will take panfish. Goodluck for your first time out that is a lake that you can have a ton of fun on just catching and releasing!

I too will third what deitz has said. I have noticed on green that the size of your jig is not as critical as it can be on other lakes, as long as you have an ice buster bobber you should catch fish. If i were not using a bobber i would go with a smaller jig tipped w/ a waxie.

Also, throw a tip up or two in the water, pretty good chance at a pike or two

I pulled an 8 lb walleye out of the spot to the left 2 years ago, in 6 ft of water on a #12 tear drop tipped with 2 waxies, fishing for pan fish.

I thought it was a 5-6 lb pike on the Vex when it went through the first time, that red line was HUGE, seeing as we were in only 6' of water.

Anyways, you can either fish there, or there's a spot straight out from the landing, about 1/2 way across the lake, where there's another smaller group of houses.

It's in a hole that's 25-30' deep, where alot of people will target crappies. I've caught them both places, but I'll usually target the shallower area, since I usually have my 4 year old with, and it's easier for him to pull up 5' of line and not tangle it, than 30' of line.

i have also had success in the hole straight out from the landing. but if you don't have a graph i wouldn't even bother w/ that spot, the most success i have had there came w/ suspended crappies (little harder to catch without a graph)

      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.

      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.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!

      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"
