      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 .

First off... Green in myopinion is probably the better walleye lake. However it does have a slot and if we are being honest.. you will probably not catch many fish that are keepers.. but you will stay busy... Chisago has some walleye in it..but not as many. The size might be a little nicer, but you willnot catch as many. In any lake.. I would look to the weed edges right now.

Deitz - is there more than one access on Green? The one on the East side of the lake was pretty shallow a month ago, and I was wondering if there's a deeper one to put in at?

There is an access on little green that is connected to Big green and that access is nice and deep. I know how to get there but can't name the roads for you. i think it is off of green lake ave which parralels Old Towne Road about two blocks to the west. I just put my Crestliner 1850 Sportfish into Green on Tuesday using the Launch you are talking about with no problems. I had to use the east side of the lauch as it is deeper on that side but I had no problem. a month ago I was not able to launch and had to use the little green access.

So the rain has brought it up a bit, then? Cool... I think I know how to get to that access on Little Green now that you mention it. I believe I used it once a couple years ago to get on for ice fishing.

Thanks for the update... cool.gif

as stated there is an access on little green.. the one on the south side of the lake that has the 2 ramps, if looking at thelake the ramp on the left is quite a bit deeper than the ramp on the right. So if you have a boat that needs a little more depth to get off the trailer, use the east/left one.

Slick, I don't think the rain has brought it up, but the access you are talking about has two ramps. When you are ready to launch, when you look out at the lake from the ramps, use the one on the right, it is about 2 feet deeper than the one on the left. I had the truck all the way in the water and still had to roll the boat off the trailer on the left ramp, but the right ramp just put the back tires of the truck in and you are good to go.

      East access..... only 3.5" - 4"  200 yards out.  .... don't know north acces as I saw enough to  stay off.
    • MrSchrute
      Anyone on here been out on White Bear yet? I've seen a few people out off the Ramsey Beach area where the truck went through the other day but have not had a chance to venture out myself. Normally I hit the Belaire area early ice. Thanks!
    • walleyewalby
      wealthwood had1.5 last weekend, i saw no one out but 1 person on the whole west side last wsat afternoon. thi week the resorts on the north end and east are reporting decent ice. check with the resorts before you go out. id stay away from public accesses now and follow a staked road.
    • MrSchrute
      Have you fished out there before? Is it worth putting some time in on the ice? Thanks-
    • walleyewalby
      so went to go scope it out, 15 trucks on the northside, wheelers and houses out. Baxter is packed. last nights fresh snow is showing alot of active cracks too... i may wait a coujple days for blue and check out baxter instead.

      Anyone know of the ice conditions in the oak narrows area?
    • blue gill hunter
      Has anyone heard of any ice reports on Big Marine?
    • dindunuffins
      I heard  6" or so around terrys..  id figure public access must be close to the same?
    • gimruis
      Dude, seriously just stay off the ice until its safer.  No fish is worth risking your life for.

       Ice is scary on blue. I was out last weekend fishing next to open water north end is kinda sketchy still my buddy has been there every day this week. Still cant get close to the points only 1 inch there. Thicker by north end but its all older ice from the first freeze lots of cracks. The bay to the east towards the points and whole south end were wide open last sunday. Had 4 inches right next to it we fished as close to the point as we could get. We were 40-50 ft from open water and we got one eye. But ive never been so scared on ice before it was cracking very badly very loud and could feel the ice shifting. The walk back to access in the dark had my heart pounding and i didnt tjink we would make it back without one uf us goin through but we did make it.
