      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 .

Computer Equipment at the bottom of a Stearns Co. Lake..

The Yeti

Not sure if I could post this here, or on the Outdoor Forum.. There's a story on channel 5 website. A whole boat full of "recycled" computer equipment from over 10 years ago, was found at the bottom of a Stearns County lake. I can't even imagine the fines, once they find out which company did it..

The equipment was from Hamline U. They had turned it over to a recycler and that is where the trail stopped at that point.

The worst part is that they charge a pretty penny or 5 to take that stuff off your hands and supposedly dispose of it in a legal fashion. I know that we do where I work.

Hi all,

Not a gravel pit, it's from Rice Lake, an established 1500 acre lake near Eden Valley/Paynesville that's managed for walleyes and also has nice pike, crappies and both green and brown bass. My family cabin is on the lake and my parents participate in the RL lake assn. A shame to say the least. The RL Lake assn has worked to control agricultural watershed and to improve water quality. This is an unfortunate situation and based on computer IDs they should be tracable to their final disposition.

I'll say this, the Hamline University staff is working with law enforcement and the DNR and it's an "alleged" salvage company that MAY be the perpitrators, not the university directly. They are cooperating and already paying for initial recoveries, etc. Hats off to Hamline U and all involved for their efforts. I have no affiliation with Hamline and all my vested interest in the long term health of my "home" lake, selfishly speaking. Just think credit should be given.....

Personally, I'd like to meet up with the perps with a few buddies in a dark alley!! grin.gif

Regards, Chris
