      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 saw the sheriff was out on lake zum on sunday. it was good to see i thought. How do they patrol? Do they stop and ask everyone to see life jackets or what? Just wondering how they go about looking for trouble? They pulled up next to us at the pondy and they just smiled and said hi didn't ask to see anything. I can tell you however that for as many boats that were out there i was glad to see the law was close by.

They don't ask everyone to produce PFD's. You can guarantee that they did check you however. When they pull by they are checking for alcoholic beverages among other things. Most sheriff departments are really stepping up BWI enforcement. Of coarse they are out there checking for PFD's and other boating violations, but they are very perceptive when they motor by you. smirk.gif

Sunday was the 2nd day I’ve seen the Sheriff(s) on the lake this season. Both days, I saw them pull over several boats including some that were traveling right next to me. They are just doing their jobs out there and I’m happy to see them. I think the first thing they look for is current stickers on your boat.

I’ve seen them just sitting back and glassing boats looking at the driver and alcohol. We saw them pull over a 17’ boat that had 7 people in it. I suppose they have a set of criteria that signals a red flag. They didn’t bother me on either occasion. The first time I was obviously fishing, and this past Sunday we were just cruising with 4 people in my boat.

I’ve also seen them nab jet skiers for one reason or another.

When we loaded the boat, they were parked in the pondy bay and must have been up in the campgrounds or something. I personally like to see enforcement out there so it a safer place for everybody. I’m not trying to be a fun hater here, but the services they provide save lives and I’m all for it.

Yeah Tyler it is a very good thing. I would personally like to see them have more patrols on area lakes. Some of these lakes are so overrun by boats and PWC. Just keeps everyone in line.
