      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 .

Pike all caught on topwater. Walleye caught on Jointed Floating Rapala.

We caught about 12 pike all good size...Missed TONS. But sadly only about 6 or 7 bass. Any tips for bass? Seems our best luck with pike was finding rocks and points out in deeper water starting from str8 out from Wooden Frog landing and the furthest east was North Deer Point Island (I think). Any tips for bass? Is the bass and Pike fishing better further east than I went? I tryed fishing weedlines South of Moxie Island but we didnt get any there. I'd appreciate some good bass and pike tips (always catch and release only!)

SledNeck, It looks like you had a successful trip to Kab. Everyone thinks you have to go all the way across the lake east or west to catch more fish not the case. Thier are smallies,northerns,walleye scattered everywhere on Kab. All it takes is a little time of fishing and trying new areas. No need to travel long distances. laugh.gif

I think we caught about 20 pike all weekend. Not close to a slaugter by any means, but I am learning the lake. Might even go next weekend.

I have stayed at handy joint. It was pouring rain and we made the trip up so instead of tent camping we stayed at handy joint. WE used to have a cabin on Kab back in the 70's to early 1980s on Bittersweet island. My fondest memories as a child were up there. I know the pike can get pretty big up there. I see no info on the saugars but we used to catch them on Kab

Any early season Northern tips on Kab?


When we used to have a cabin on Kab, we used to see pike in the spring, in the morning, resting near the surface. We ended up hitting 2 by mistake. Now when I go up, I will get up early, and cast floating raps off shallow points or near reeds. The Grassy Islands has been a good pike producer early with floating raps. It's a blast watching those green torpedos hit those floating raps with hate and fury. Oh, and I usually fish on the side that the sun shines most on. I haven't caught any real trophies this way but numbers and size enough for eating. Try also the southeast bar on Bittersweet if the water isn't too low. There is a beaver lodge on the land and reeds that come into the water and extend about 50'. Early, shallow, floating, and sun side. That's whats worked for me, anyways

Thanks for the tips. Im after the monsters. I guess I will try off the rocks and the places you said with some husky jerks and maybe some jointed rapalas. Maybe mix in a few spinner baits too.
