      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 .

Kitchi Lake reports?

Recommended Posts

I am looking for some tips on fishing Kitchi. I have never been there before and will be staying at Lost acres over the July 4th week. If anyone has any suggestions including starting points that would be great. I am most interested in walleyes but wouldn't mind finding some muskies either.

Thanks!

A long time since I spent a summer week on Kitchi, but what I remember was out in the eve right out in front of Lost Acres trolling in 10-15'. I would use a crawler harness and go SLOWLY.

No help for musky, but for pike I say GO DEEP!. I would first try shallow though-with a plain No. 3 silver Mepps for snakers or a big white bass spinnerbait thrown at the reeds for bigger ones. Another spot I would try for sure would be at the turn into the Turtle River heading toward PikeHole. Supposedly the whole shoreline down past the overhead powerline is a prime spot to try too but we never have.

Good luck.

All good suggestions from gene. The walleye have probably moved deeper now than they were a couple weeks ago when I fished it. So fish the break on the N. Shore and W. Shore of Kitchi. We just move in and out between 10 and 18 ft until we find the walleyes. They always seem to be shallower on Kitch than I expect them to be too.

For muskies. The whole north shore can hold fish. Good well defined breakline on the western half. Really deep water comes up next to the break as you move west towards the narrows/powerline. Powerline is gone now, but you can't miss the neck-down. Good cabbage beds intermittently all along that shore. Try trolling the deep edge of the cabbage during the day. Or cast on top of it a low-light periods or cloudy/windy times. If you get a stiff south breeze for a couple days, and you can handle getting bounced around... the action can be pretty good on the north shore.

The western arm of Kitchi (what do they call that now... Whitefish Bay?) has some really steep shoreline contours too. I've never caught a muskie on these dropoffs... but have caught some walleyes and some nice pike. Good luck. Post a report when you get back!
