      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 Smallmouths?

Recommended Posts

mpester

I was fishing Green Lake in Chisago County on Sunday. I landed one smallmouth about 10-11" long on a crappie jig. Anyone else ever get any smallmouth out of this lake?

Are you sure it was a smallmouth and not a rock bass? Never ever heard of any smallies in there.

I too have fished this lake quite a few times as its very near my house, and have never heard of a smallie being caught. You didn't happen to take a picture did you?

I am 100% sure it was a smallmouth. No photos but I have landed 100's or 1000's of smallmouths and more than a few rock bass. I hooked the fish in that bay just to the N - NE of the ramp - near the girl scout camp.

It was a strange day of fishing. I got a lot of small bluegill and bass but only a few crappies (only one over 9"). The strange part - besides the smallmouth - was that I got 12 good sized walleyes on a roadrunner type jig. I got so many walleyes I had to stop using that lure even if it was the only thing getting me any crappies.

I had posted a thread a couple months ago about smallmouths being in coon lake. I don't doubt at all that there may be a smallie or 2 in green lake, but it's most definitely a situation where someone "stocked" it there.

Hey Mike, Haven't fished there in years, but we never got any back in the 80's and 90's when we used to fish it all the time. I agree that some lakeshore owner prolly "stocked" it, and prolly a few others.

How's the boat running?

(ps - I got a 18.5" smallie up at the cabin in between crappies last weekend. Was fun. Crapps were a snappin'!)

The boat is running perfect and I love the setup and all the storage. I do not like the spot I put the GPS/sonar in but it is about the only place I could put it. I had to buy a new prop because I beat the heck out of the original one last fall.

I got Lindsey out on her first fishing trip last Saturday. She got some bluegills and had a lot of fun. It is hard to set the hook with a Barbie pole. I even took Pam along. By the way, Pam has made it to 14 weeks and is due on 10/31. That may put a crimp in duck season! She has said I can only hunt less than 30 minutes from home this season.

It was probably a perch, they can be dark in those green stained waters, and can look different to a novice fisherman.

TRZ it sounds like you are mistaking perch for smallies. They really dont look anything a like. I fish Green often and I have heard of a smallmouth being caught now and again but rarely.

Yeah, with the croix only being a few miles away I think it is very likely, and unfortunately probably pretty common for people to catch some smallies there and release them into green, and probably the other lakes in the chain. And I also wouldn't be surprised if there's 1 or 2 smallies in rush lake as well...although, rush is connected to the croix so they could be more common than any of the chisago chain.
