      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 .

Newcomer to Kab - Help

Recommended Posts

Hi yall. Some friends and I will be heading to Kab June 9-13. We have been going to Ontario for fishing the past 10 years, however do to some issues, one of our buddies can not enter Canada for a few years. So we are staying state side this year. We are staying at Northern Lights.

So that being said I am looking for a little heads up on some locations for walleyes.No Im not looking for gps coordinates of your favorite hole, just some general starting points. Also any presentations or certain colors work best this time of year?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Jig and a minnow(rainbow chubs and shiners) work best for us. Lindy rigs work well too. the deeper you are finding fish the heavier the jig needs to be. We've fished as deep as 40 feet, you'll want a 1/2ounce jig for that. Hard to say without giving up some of our honey holes but I would just try to play the wind and set up drifts along breaks and zig zag the dropoff till you find what depth they are at. 18-25fow is where we usually start. Sometimes the smaller fish you can keep are not with the larger fish. You should be able to talk to the resort when you get up there, they should be able to point you in the right direction as far as spots to fish.

Check in at the Corner store and Bait 'n' Bite. I am sure they will give you some good hints at where they are biting.

It's a good lake that requires a little work.

So far so good on the info. With lindy setup, is just a plain hook the norm?

Most days for me it's a 2-3 foot leader with a red hook and red bead. Though as usual with fishing I have had black, chartreuse, and orange hooks be the more productive color on a given day. When it's cloudy/darker I usually switch over to a glow bead.
