      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 .

Kabetogma in June

Recommended Posts

Guest

I was wondering if you cold help me with something. We are planning to stay in Ash River during the second week in June. During this time we plan to fish on Lake Kabetogama for Pike. In general is this a good time to fish for pike, and are there any places you would recommend trying around the Ash River area? We would probably be willing to go out aways from Ash if there are any exceptionally good spots out farther. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I too am going to be at the kab-ash river area in june the week of 6-21-6-28 and am staying at the frontier resort. I am taking a father son triop up there with my 2 sons 13 and 16 the last time i was up there i was 16 or 17 years old myself. i can't wait to go but it has been 2o some odd years since i have been up there so i can't give you any real help except to tell you to read all of the past posts as far back as you can under the kab forum site here and you will get a lot of pointers on where to go and what to use, well good luck to you and be sure to post how you did when you get back.

we used to stay on the ash river several years ago at ash trail lodge..usually went up memorial week or first/second week of june...sullivan bays channel will hold early eye's if temps aren't extreme, fish the edges around the markers half way up sullivan...another producer was the bay on the left side of sullivan just prior to entering the narrows...also the opposite side of the channel along the rock wall...if youcross the neck of kabe from the narrows there is a spot marked as lost lake, darker water warms early...wolfe island also a known producer, usually the south east end ..look for the breaks...good luck

Finding Pike won't be a problem, the channels, shorelines, and nearly all of Sullivan bay will produce Northerns.

On the other hand if you are trying for big Pike, go back towards main Kab, you can troll or cast lures in Blind Ash bay, Nebraska bay and a big holder of all species including big pike is Lost Bay. Generally Kab will produce the bigger N.Pike early in the year because of water temps.

For lures, spoons are always a good bet, large Mepps, big raps, Ikes, cisco kids, poes and etc. A absolute guarantee for Pike is good ole fashion bobber fishing with a sucker minnow,(light northen bait). Its a sure fire way for some action, as well as you can catch other speices. Good luck,

Light northern minnows might be called small suckers or small decoy minnows, the minnow is about 5-6 inches in length. Fish with a hefty slip bobber and leader using either a kahle hook or a standard hook size 1 or bigger.

Game fish, especially pike like the big minnows. The bobber will generally bob once then go out of sight after about 60 seconds let it rip, he should be hooked..

Good luck, I know the Gateway Stoe on hwy 53 at the Kab entrance carries light northen minnows. guts <}}}}><

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.
