      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 .

I have been there once when I was in high school. It was my first trip to Cananda and it was awesome. I can't wait to go back there and take my 3 year old son along when he gets older. My dad has a group of guys that go up there every year in June and they have a great time. I thoguth the camp was real nice and good cabins.

There is another guy (fishook) on this HSOforum that is part of that fishing group that I am sure will chime in.

Been to Kabiwabic many times, you will enjoy the fishing. The portages are incredible. If they get a chance, fish walleys near the waterfalls. Been many years since I have been there but it was a great fishing experience.

Stay warm but I bet you guys will have a great time.

I have only been up to Lac Seul/Minaki but Lac Seul isn't too far from Pickeral if I remember right.

Please make sure to stop back and let us know how it went.

Been going to Pickerel Arm for the past 20 years. Always stayed at base camp and fished Minnitaki. Make sure you talk to Lee about limits and stuff of Kabi as some of the fly-ins have special limits and restrictions. Kabi is a great Walter lake from what I hear. Like others had said, lots of sunken rocks and points so be careful with the boats and bring a GPS.

I was up there from Sept. 9-14 with a group of six guys. We caught alot of walleyes, biggest was 27 1/2". Most of the guys fished for walleyes while my brother-in-law and I fished for pike. We had alot of action all day and caught some very nice fish. Seemed very wierd, but they don't have any smallies in the lake. One of the guys caught a large eelpout in 40' of water. Check out the waterfalls area, lots of small fish but very nice view.

Been going to PAC since 1985. Minnitaki is a real walleye factory. There are two Kabis: Kabiwabic and Kabikebic (spelling is close at best). We have never flown to an outpost (Lee has 8 or 10 of them) but stay at the base and take our own rigs. There may not be any smallmouth bass in Kabi, but Minnitaki has plenty of them. We generally make the June trip (the guys) and go back with the wives in late July/early August. Lots of great memories from up there.
