      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 .

Kab Report 7/9 to 7/16

Recommended Posts

Satchmo

Just returned from another "Family Week" at Pine Aire on central Kab. I must say it was some of the best weather and fishing we've had on our annual July trips. My 10 year old took me to school again. I guess that's why I bring him along. It is definately a morning/evening thing going right now, with a few scattered daytime bites. We caught over 40 slot fish, a dozen over the slot and about 20 undersized fish throughout the week. With young boys, I decided to "Bobber-UP" and work the main lake reefs for the majority of our fishing. Working the edges where they make contact with both deep water and rock piles seemed to be the ticket. There was another group at the resort that did very well in the School Teacher area running bottom bouncers with spinners and crawlers. The mud areas seem to be slowing down along with the bug hatch.

One of the biggest highlights for me this week was taking out Niles' neice Robin for an evening of fishing when my crew went on their kayak adventure with Watsons. Prior to that day, she had only caught 2 walleyes in her entire life. That changed very quickly on Wednesday evening. We anchored up at 7:30 and by 9:30 we had caught 18 fish with 11 in the slot. You should have seen that girl shine. I just sat back and kept slapping on the leeches. grin.gif

Take care all, and good luck. Greg

We're due in to Pine Aire on the 30th. It's good to hear the walleyes are active. Hopefully, that will continue for a few more weeks because I'm looking forward to a little shore lunch action. Did you fish in Lost Bay and if so, any action down there?

K.D.--Had a little smallmouth action in Lost Bay, but did not fish it for 'eyes. A few of the guys at the resort reported some catches from down there though. I may be slipping back up to Pine Aire on the 30th as well. Depends on the wifes vacation pool after the shutdown. If we get up there I'll fill you in on all the gory details. Greg grin.gif

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try

      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!

      Ok but with all those Trout. Bring a tow rope as I may be stuck in the slush!
