      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 would like to thank the pontoon full of people that parked 20 feet from my 7 year old and I the other night on a relatively empty 1500 acre lake. If you hadnt driven up to within 5 feet of my sons bobber and right over the area that I was casting on Saturday night with that 70 horse and kids jumping up and down we probably would have kept catching crappies. I apologize for asking you guys to move a little bit further away, but fortunately, you were able to scare off the school that we had found. I wish more people understood that it is a free lake and its OK to park as close to anyone that they wish. If everyone could figure that out, I am positive that fewer fish would be caught and it is always easier to keep a youngster interested when they are catching nothing. Thanks for attempting to teach my son that kind of behaivior is perfectly acceptable. Unfortunately, he and I had a talk about rudeness and complete lack of respect for others and the lesson was wasted. I hated to have that talk with him because I think it is important to grow up learning that it is much easier to watch guys catching fish from shore with binoculars and then just horn in on them than spend time on the lake learning how to fish. In fact, if you are free this fall, maybe you can take him out deer hunting and show him how to get up early and teach him how it is ok to sit in someone else's deer stand if you get there first. I am hoping to be back up there in a month so you will have another chance to ruin the fishing for him. Thanks again for all the help.

Oh joy! SF, it is so good of you to see the true value of people. Some people might miss the great lessons to be learned but obviously you can see right to the point. grin.gif

Today while unloading my work boat at the launch, a large group on a pontoon motored in. It seems they had run low on beverages. It must have been a drastic situation seeing how they ran right into the back of my jonboat which was tied up. I'm sure if SF were there he could have pointed out all of the good points of that situation. I was blind to them but that might have been because I was knocked backwards and hit my head on the middle bench. mad.gif

This might have been the same group I encountered on Island Lake the other day. Bad enough they anchor within 10 feet of my bouy, but then they throw slip bobber rigs in every direction. They were nice enough to allow me to retrieve my bouy. I wished them well and moved on. I hadn't caught a fish on that reef anyway

Well, this was obviously the same boat sampling the fishing on different lakes on different days.

Chunkster, if all you hit was your head (I believe you and I could both be considered "thick-skulled") what's the big deal? No harm no foul. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Northlander, I cant decide if people are becoming more rude or just more "stupider". I see this more and more all of the time up north, here in the Twin Cities, out deer hunting, and even during bear hunting season and it is frustrating.

I know of the people that did it to me the other night and from what I have heard, it should have been expected. It is such a tough thing to deal with. You expect it and yet I am shocked every time it does. I just kinda stand there with my mouth open.

I think next time I might be stripping down to the tighty whities and tucking them in like a sumo wrestler. I am sure the women and their kids on the boat would love to see the fat hairy guy in a thong dancing and singing Bee Gee songs.

Gotta agree with you Ted. It has become more and more difficult to fish on that lake without some *&&%( ruining the day. I heard you guys were killing the crappies too! The sumo idea would scare the H out of anyone! The only thing scarier would be MRP in a thong!
