      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 .

Need Ideas for Early June Trip to Kab

Recommended Posts

Kaby Mud Bug

Alright guys -- it is finally here. My annual fishing trip with the ole' college buddies to Kabetogama. We will be staying at our faviorite Park Point resort during the first week in June.

Here is why I need your help. The last two years we have had terrible fishing. I mean really bad. I don't know if it is me or the conditions. Last year, I fished very hard for 4+ days and only brought in one Walleye. For the group of 5, we only brought in 6 walleyes. Really miserable fishing. I don't need Red Lake, but I do need some nibbles at least! So...

I would appreciate if you guys would give me some specific spots and techniques to try. To be honest, the only thing that has worked for us in the last three years is bobber fishing at dusk in the grassy's. Any other thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

I'm no expert. Last year was my first trip to Kab. We struggled at first but by the end of the week we were picking up on the lakes patterns. It was really warm last year, we had our best luck trolling in 5-10' of water in Tom Cod Bay. The weeds will be a problem if you troll cranks that dive too deep. I'd suggest an x-rap or another long, slender shallow diver. I'm talkin 1-3'. The bite tended to slow down after the sun started to crest, get out there at 6am or earlier if possible. I can't say cranks out fished spinner rigs, but it was pretty close. This year we plan to explore the east end more. I've got a good feelin bout Ash River narrows! Best of luck Mud. cw

This will be my 4th year. The first was rough, but still managed to have successful trip. I am basically a jig and whatever bait is working man, but I will throw a rap and troll a lindy rig occasionally. I usually do Tom Cod Bay very early and at dusk. Then during the day play around Cemetary Islands, South side of Harris Island for Walleye, or Grassy Islands for Northern. But last year was the best by far as we ventured into Namakan during the day and hit the Southwest bays, really tore up the Walleye and Smallies, just jigging. Colors varied, always have alot on hand and change often, unless the one your using is hot. Walleyes were in 6 to 15 feet and smallies every where. I always go the 1st or 2nd week of June, this year is the 2nd week. Good Luck cool.gif

Thanks for the quick responses guys! I am starting to feel good about this upcoming trip. Anyways -- if I see you guys as Shea-Shea (sp?) I will buy you a round of Long Island iced teas!

Thanks for the tips! Please keep them coming, because I need them!

Early June can be highly variable in terms of what is going on with the walleye. I would consider hiring a guide early on in the trip to get you tuned in on the pattern and learn some new areas to work. It is an investment that pays off if you continue to make trips to the area.

There are several great guides, I've had great success and learned a lot with Tim and Wade Watson.

Good luck!

There's the back current behing Moxie island that has eyes running through it chasing perch.

I would look shallow when the light is low and try out a little deeper during the day.

Do you guys know what the typical rates are for a guide for half a day?
