      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 5/24-5/27

Recommended Posts

Farley

Water levels are about 3 feet down on Kab\Nam, 6 foot down on Rainy. We caught probably 30 walleyes, biggest being 24", most came off windblown points, using minnows on lindy rigs, red hook and green bead, 10-20 fow. Sunday we caught fish all afternoon, but other days we seemed to catch the end of a morning bite around noon-1:00 (we rarely got out before noon). Lots of wind, so if you can stay on the points, jigging should work, otherwise what we did was set up upwind, throw out the driftsock and use the trolling motor to keep us at a certian depth, drifting at .5 mph. Also caught a few saugers up shallow closer to night. Green seemed to be the triggering color for us. Friday we had to come off the lake because it was so hot, Saturday night it snowed.

Kab report and Water levels, Glad you caught fish and had a good time. However, the lake level comment isn't quite right. Rainy is down only about 2 feet and here at Kab, we are about 3 feet from the top of the rule curve. We aren't at the top very often. Thus we are also about 2 feet from what is the "normal level" Check out lakes.bc.com and you can see the up to date data. Fishkab

Farley,, that is probably true, and it depends on how much of the fire water was consumed... Fishkab

      I checked a small lake in Arden Hills after work yesterday. Measured 3-4”. Should be ready for me to actually fish next time.
