      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 .

Chisago Area

Recommended Posts

Can't choose a lake for the morning! Me and my buddy need input. We've only fished NS Center and Green before but its been a while for both. Any suggestions for the area? Thanks.

Those 2 are good choices, but throw Chisago into the mix. Great action lake. Big variety of ways to fish - deep, slop, weedlines, reed banks.

Tough morning on green. Chose to frog fish and didn't do as well as we'd hope. Caught a few and missed a few. I can't figure our NS Center and I don't know why!

I think I will try Chisago next, haven't fished it yet!

Frog fishing on Chisago was pretty decent on Saturday 5:00am until 10am. All the fish seems pretty fat like they have been eating well recently. South end in the slop and around most of the big floating weed beds were pretty active. The three smaller bays were giving up fish but a little smaller in size than on the main lake. Did some cranks also in 10'-15'  off weed edges and the pike were all over them.

Green has some great weed beds - some of the nicest coontail and milfoil in the area plus more and more cabbage.  Weedline sets up around 11ft give or take.  Find an edge somewhere and follow it along with t-rigged plastic or jig.

 Haven't fished N. Center much since winter kill but fish are there. Expect alot of tiny northern. Always fish around the island and out from it. Generally, stay shallow, though there are some deep rocks always worth trying.
