      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 .

Birdhunter,
I will be up on Kab and Namakan from tomorrow evening til tuesday and will let you know how we do for smallies. Mainly fish for eye's but spend some time casting for smallies. Previous years we have found them by casting #5 shad raps or tube jigs to rocky shorelines/islands with good success working along with a trolling motor. Will be trying some "skitter pops" this year. I believe they should still be up shallow then. Have also used leech/slipfloat off of campsites for both eye's and smallies. The lake is up about 2-3 feet from last year, you might want a Fishing Hot Spots map also to give you some places to start and familiarize yourself with the lake. You will enjoy this area, its great country!! Xplorer

I have been fishing Kab and Nam since 1974. We have had great luck for smallies and most people on Kab do not even fish for them. We have had the best luck that time of the year fishing rocky shoreline in the shallower bays. The warmer the water, the faster and deeper the bait needs to go. If you are not catching fish keep moving. Try Sullivan Bay or up by Schoolteacher on Kab and Kohler Bay on Namaken.
