      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 .

wmn luv me walleye fearme

thinking about heading up to kab mid sept to do some camping. i have a 16 foot lund explorer with a 50 horse, i was planning on taking out. Hoping it wont be as crowded that time of year as the kids will be back in school. would i have a problem getting my boat beached on most of the campsites and getting it secured?

thanks

You should have no problem at all. Most sites have either a sandy spot to pull onshore or if the shoreline is rock they have very nice docks built. About the only one i can think of that has neither (on west Nam and east Kab) is Johnson island. As of last year the area to tie up a boat was rubbley rock mostly. I've got a 17' lund/90hp and have never had a problem in the 40+ camping trips I've made up there.

We've been fishing Kab in Sept almost every year for more than 10 years. Always at a resort - never camping. Weather is always a factor, but fishing is generally very good. The fish patterns will begin to change as the lake turns over, and September fishing can produce some of the biggest crappies you've ever seen. It can get down right cold, and rain on top of that can make things challenging. But the fall colors are magnificent and the amount of boat traffic / angling pressure on the lake is down significantly from the summer peek. The past 4 years, we've also worked in a 3 or 4 day weekend fishing trip in October. Kab is a beautiful place in the fall.

Jill, We're on our way up on 6/16. Sara will be with us, and hopefully no trips to the emergency room will be necessary :-0

Enjoy

Walleye fear me,

You should call the park or go online www.nps.gov/voya and get a Park camping map. It not only shows where all the sites are but also tells you what kind of access there is dock/sand. You will have fun, September is a great time of year to be here.

Thanks a lot for the info, Normally do the boundary waters/ canoe thing but figured would try something different, Was looking at the camp site map as well. One more question is is it worth it to maybe use a resort and pay to launch out of there (to try and get a fishing report, maybe ask them for a campsite they'd recomend etc. if so any recomendations? Or am i better off just using the public launch

thanks again

Fear-me,

There are several public landings on Kab. For fall fishing/camping I would recommend going in at the Ash River Visitor Center boat ramp. There is a nice ramp and three big parking lots. This area of Kab is fairly narrow so if those fall winds come up you can still get in and out. Also, the fall fishing on Kab is good on the east end of kab/west Namakan area. Lastly, there are plenty of campsites in the east Kab/west Namakan area for you to choose from. I would suggest for you to get a good lake map or chip for your GPS to help you get around. Have fun and good luck.
