      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 timer

Heading up to Kab for the first time Thursday. Hopefully we will have some good weather. Thinking that trolling with raps and bringing a few minnows would be best. Are leeches worth bringing this time of year? Any other suggestions for a first timer would be appreciated.

I would try crawlers instead of leeches at this time of year. Heard from a couple of guides that they were limiting out in shallow water (12-15 ft) in the morning. Then switch to minnows and look deeper as the sun gets higher. Good luck and enjoy the lake!

First Timers report: the weather could have cooperated more on Thursday and Friday, Saturday and Sunday were much better. Fishing was fair to poor, might be it is a big lake to learn for the first time up and a combination of the weather. Most boaters were great, suprised at the number of inconsiderate boaters. We had a small 14 ft with a 9.9 the big 200hp boats would race by 20 yards from us. Most would slow down, even had a few turn to give us a bigger wake.

I know that there are folks who like to fish in the channel and that would be at their own risk but if you were well out of the channel the boats should have given you a little sea room. I try to give someone as much room as possible if they are fishing, there have been times when I have come around the corner of an island to be suprised by a boat in the blind spot and then I feel bad cause I know that I am gonna rock em good but by the time I see them there it is too late to do anything but feel bad. It is better to go by planed out than to slow to 1/4 speed and really throw up a wake.
