      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 .

Steamboat or Kabekona

I plan on going camping in the area next month, I might be able to fish both lakes, but if I had to choose only 1 to fish, which would it be?

Hey JB,

My family and I have fished Lake Kabekona for almost 20 years now and with the cycle of walleyes constantly fluctuating, it can be a hit or miss endeavor. But not now! Walleye fishing is hot on Kabekona and will be for the next few years. Troll the deep drops with cranks and crawler harnesses and in summer target suspended "hog" eyes over deep water with cranks and harnesses. You can expect 24-30" fish on a regular basis with some practice as well as quite a few in the 17-23" range as well. Deep and clear. Choose your tackle accordingly and depending on wind and weather be ready to fish at night!

Good luck, Blackbird

I've been fishing Kabekona for over 30 years, we have a cabin there. The fishing has been better than usual but "hot" would be an overstatement. The previous poster had a good time up there, and it is true that larger fish can be caught. There is a slot 18-26 must go back, limit of four and I have not caught more than two fish a day on the lake all year and I've fished it a lot. I'd go to Steamboat, all the walleyes are over 29" and there are 15" crappies easy to catch!!!

My cousin was fishing this lake two nights ago, and had 6 fish between 3:30 pm and 6:30pm, one 26" and it only gets better later in the day unless there is serious "chop". Four member's of my family have 30"+ fish from this lake including my wife's 32 1/2" from three years ago. I would like to fish steamboat though if all the eyes are over 29.

Good luck all. I'm hoping to get up here in october for some super slobs!

I have a tough decision to make and I only have 1 month to make it. I'm gonna be camping in the area regardless of where I decide to fish though.
