      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 .

Where to go on Kab in wind

Recommended Posts

I'll be on Kab june 2-8. I've noticed from the weather sites that the wind has been up pretty often. Last year I got caught in Tom Cod bay after a calm morning and then a 17mph blow came up out of the east. White knuckles all the way back to mid lake. So here's the question: Where would you go if the wind is up either out of the west or east? 16 ft. boat, 25 hs motor and two people. And still catch fish when not on a wind blown point?

I would try fishing the east end as there is a lot of cover down by Ritchie, Headlight, Martin ect...

A wind swept point is a good place to fish.

Usually the first place I head to. With a transom mount trolling motor, I find it difficult to control the boat and fish when in a stiff wind. Usually try to get into the windless side of an island and cast out into the waves from there.

Bring a weather radio. Not always right on, but you'll have an idea what to expect when you go out in the morning. It sounds like other than fishing, getting back to where you were staying was an issue. I started up there with a 14' Wards boat and a 15hp motor, so I had more than a few scary times on Kab. I still watch the wind and move closer to home when it starts coming up. As posted before, the Headlight, Ritchie area is good. If you're staying on the west end, the Grassies, Ram, Picnic, or Yewbush can be good. Use the islands for shelter on the way home. And even if you're on the bite behind an island, watch what's going on out on open water. You don't want to have to stay there all night.

I just got back for the windest week every. Monday & Tuesday the wind had to be better than 30 mph. We fished in where the wind was blowing,it was tuff fishing but caught fish. I have a 16ft with a 40hp. we got wet, but taking it easy it was fine. Good Luck.
