      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 seen bears in open water two times on Kab over the years. I've also seen deer several times swim across a half mile or more of open water.

We've been hitting Kabe at least once a year for more than a decade. Our first bear encounter was in '94 (with lots of video of the kids over-reacting and destroying our metal campware as they banged everything they could hit). Since then, August of '97 and June '00 were the only other years we have not fended off the bears. August simply was too late in the season I suspect and they had foraged and were seemingly content. June of '00 we were totally transient, utilizing jungle hammocks to sleep wherever we got tired and did all the cooking exclusively in our paramilitary (duck) boat with bear-proof lockers. As intended, they never found us. BUT.... we have seen them swim between islands MANY times; even in the roughest waters Kabe can stir up. One year we tried to "shoo" a bear away by standing on the shore as she approached, making all the racket we could muster -- even by driving the boat parallel to shore to encourage him/her to change his/her path, but to no avail. The bear just kept swimming further around the island until we could not keep up. We just sat at camp and waited. Sure enough, he/she sauntered into camp at dusk while we waited on the boat. Since we keep a clean camp, he/she soon became disinterested and headed back into the lake, headed for yet another island. The bear appeared for all the world to be "trolling" the islands for a snack.

We've learned to live with the bears and continue to follow the rules, but it would only be slightly bittersweet if we did not have to account for them each trip. But, the fishing, camping and R&R still outweigh the nuances of nature; i.e., rain, wind, cold, bears.....
