      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 .

Little Gabbro Lake

I am heading to Little Gabbro for a few days in June. Can anyone point me to some good fishing areas on or connected to this lake? Thanks in advance.

Hit the narrows between the two lakes, and where the river comes into Gabbro from Bald Eagle.

You will have good fishing on Big Gabro, try around the first island to the north. You can also go down the lake to where Bald eagle runs into Gabro and fish below the rapids there. Also the current between Gabro and Bald Eagle can be good.

Just don't waste your time in the Kawishiwi River. There are absolutely no walters below the rapids, at the end of the portage from Little Gabbro. Heck there are no walters upstream a few bends, below a much bigger set of rapids either.

Flatlander,

Well, that depends how early in June. There are fish below just about every riffle from early May to sometime around the middle of June. Then it gets pretty slow for many parts of the Kawishiwi.

That's a good point. The last few years, I've done a 4-5 day basecamp fishing trip on the Kawishiwi, but that was always late-May. I've never found any really big girls, lots of 12"-17". There are some monster Pike roaming though. I had one that hit a 16"er on my stringer, that left chomp marks from the middle of the dorsal fin up to the walters snout. It was just a big shadow coming up through the stained water. Made the trip that year.
