      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 .

I fished on Kab. Sat, Sun, and Mon. Our group did fairly well the first two days. We had a big fish fry and froze a few to take home. Then on Monday things really took off in the windy/cloudy conditions. We caught fish ALL DAY LONG. We caught enough slot fish to fill everyone out and literally release dozens of fish between 18" and 24" trying to find the eaters.Then we came a day early and scored points with our wives. As for the specifics, we caught fish from 6 ft. to 42 ft., but the most productive was fishing the windswept shorelines on the southeast side of Wolf Island in 6 to 10 feet with Lindy rigs and minnows. You will have to fight the crowd there though. If you keep moving around the islands and points near the mainland you'll be able to find scattered pods of fish all to yourself in 10 to 20 ft. That was our most enjoyable fishing of the weekend. If you like to jig I would recommend checking around the Chase/Knox/Headlight Islands in 35 to 42 ft. range. We caught some real dandies in that area. Let me know how you do and remember-

Anyone out there fish Kab opening weekend? Just looking for some information on what depth the fish were in and what presentations worked best. I hope to be on the lake Saturday morning.

Fished Kab and Namakan on opener. Caught most are walleyes in about 30 - 35 ft of water on jigs and minnows. Most were in the slot with a few above and some below. We caught a lot of fish.

Thanks for the details SATCHMO. Sounds like you had an excellent opener! As usual, the fish in Kab are scattered through various depths with the nicer fish deeper. Will let you know how we did.

In a typical fall (after turnover) the best areas are usually on the east end of Kab. Try the mouth of the Ash River, the entrance to Lost Lake, and the entrance to Blind Ash Bay. Use a jig and LARGE minnows. The area can get crowded at times, but the fishing can be phenominal. You might want to poke around some of the other points and Islands in that area too, as we have found groups of fish all to ourselves in the past. GOOD LUCK!

Jim W.,
If it is a warm August and Sept, don't forget to bring the crawlers along. I have had excellent results with crawlers on 6 to 8 foot snells after labor day before the lake turns over. The fish tend to move toward the Ash River area this time of year or at least the most active fish.

Thanks guys, what about typical depths if any? That can save a newcomer to Kabby many hours!!!!!! Again thanks a ton, If I can ever repay just ask!!!

(PS I know it's never on schedule, but when does Kab "usually" turn?)

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!

      the rum is back in its banks so bet the fishing is amazing? Anyone out trying? Where are all of you? I know it’s busy time but let us know what you are chasing.

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe
