      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 .

Going to Kab in July with younger kids. 3,5 and 7. Any recommendations on resorts that we should look into? Appreciate any response.

shouldbe,

Pine Aire Resort has a nice beach and playground as does Tomahawk Resort. Moosehorn has lots of activities for kids and good dock fishing. Most resorts do have some kids play areas and water toys and things for them to do. The south shore resorts have good dock fishing also plus any resort can hook you up with a park program which are great for the kids. Check out the Kab web site and look into the resorts for yourself tho. http://www.kabetogama.com/resorts.htm

Good Luck - enjoy your time on Kab!

In my opinion it would be hard to beat Idlewild Resort for family friendly and just plain great resort owners.

Will do, Dreamin'. Do the same for us to Katie, Chris and Molly!

When is your first trip? Looks like we could have a relatively early ice-out. Ash River went out 4/7 - Kab is usually 10 days to 2 weeks behind that. Have had some warm weather and pretty good winds. Ice is gone by the ranger station and the ducks, seagulls and herons are in the sky along w/ some eagles. Kab is just waiting to be fished!

Kab Dreamin

We are coming up the first week of August. My cousins that used to come up with us in the 70's are coming up also and my brother is driving in from California and is bringing his boat, too. I can't imagine hauling a boat over two mountain ranges when you can rent one but I'm not him. I'm also trying to sneak in a September trip, but that will be up to "she who must be obeyed". I gotta figure a way to get up there for opening sometime. It would be quite a change to fish on opening instead of clean fish on opening. smirk.gif

Hello Kab Dreamin, Good to see you on the site. Stop by and say hello on one of your trips.. I know stories about you, I don't know if Pine Aire is lucky or not!!! Enough of that. While you are Dreamin, I will probably take a boat ride tomorrow. Take Care Fishkab

fishkab,

You wouldn't be a famous Kabetogama guide who I recently saw on a FM hot bite video and ex-resort owner, would you? If so, I know who you are and will definitely stop in and say hello in August.

Any stories you have about me are really old now and don't count anymore, so don't tell any of them to my kids. smirk.gif

      Can anyone report on fishing on Rainy River this week?
    • Tony S
      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.

      VG, Good bite most days now! All minnows for me. jigs or lindys. Chubs, shiners, and pike suckers. Found walleyes from 8' to 40' yesterday. Cliff

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.
