      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 .

Kabekona Lake Fishing

Howdy all,

I just moved south of Bemidji, in the Guthrie area, used to live on east side of Lk Bemidji, and I'm going start fishing Kabekona Lake..... Any suggestions... How has the bite been lately? Walleyes through the ice?

I'm a tranplant from the Northshore also and used to fish trout quite a bit, thus I noticed that Kabekona had Lake trout planted in it, has anyone caught any? Any suggestions?

Any comments would help...

there are quite a few deeper humps on the lake to try for walleyes. It is a tough lake to fish and while the size is pretty good it isn't much of a numbers lake, a fish here and there. Regarding the lake trout I wouldn't waste my time fishing them, I've fished the lake for thirty years and haven't accidently caught one, soft water or ice fishing. We have a place on the north shore and I've started fishing Leech again in the past two years.

Hey Drifter time to face the facts man.....you live in North central now you fish walleye. grin.gif

Tough to find a good laker body of water around the Bemidji/Cass Lake area. There are a few I can't think of right now that are just northwest of Grand Rapids would probably be the closest shots at a laker.

Have a good one.

Any one else out there that might have come upon a stray trout?

As far as Walleyes.... I'm an avid walleye guy... Fish for them every chance I get... The toughest part over here is the clarity and depth of the lakes..A lot of the lakes in the Arrowhead Region are bog stained (~5'clarity) and have max depths of maybe 25' or so, thus the 20' clarity and 100' depths around here are a new experience for me...I'm starting to adapt to the different conditions and have done well a few times out over the last couple years...

I'm hoping for a bigger boat this summer, if my other house sells.. The fact that I live smack dab in the center of some of the best walleye waters in the world is something I plan on taking advantage of... Don't tell my wife this... she has other plans for me....

Drifter good having you here at FM. A lot of great fishermen around here and it is great to have another.

I know what you mean by the clear, deep lake thing. I fish Pike Bay alot and the water is so clear and it is deep that for a while It was so hard for me to find the fish.

I knew that it held them but the tactics are different and they turn on different, bite different. But they grow very large walleyes and that is the reason I love the lakes in this region of MN. They have the water, forage bases to excel.

If you ever want to fish sometime in the summer let me know, the Ranger VS is always on the lift on the bay.

Cheers

      Fuses are for fire protection. If you're willing to risk a fire in your boat if something goes awry, have at it. Your insurance company would be happy to have a good reason to keep all the premiums you've paid and refuse your claim. Hopefully no one will get injured or die in the fire.

      Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.

      Looking to get on some walleye and crappie this week, looks like mayflies were out in full force last night when I was on the lake. First year fishing this lake, where does a guy start?

      Thank you one and all, especially you Tommy. Some very kind words and ditto to you my friend. "Ace" "It's just fishing man"

      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!
