      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 .

New GPS lake map of Rainy in works

Recommended Posts

Two big Lakemaster boats have been recording data on Rainy for several days. They plan to issue a new map. I would think it would take about 20 years of boat riding to cover the whole lake but it will be interesting to see the final product.

The technology and technique used in those boats is pretty amazing. So are the maps. It will take a while, but you'll see a really nice product soon enough....

Are they mapping the Canadian side and the U.S. side?

They've been mapping for at least 3 months now and I'm fairly certain it will include both sides of the border.

Yup, they said they were doing both sides.

Just yesterday I put a new Garmin 750 in the truck. What a fantastic piece of technology! It caused me to contemplate how much GPS technology has changed my fishing and hunting experience. It seems like yesterday when we saw first hand how accurate GPS was during Desert Storm. Now I can motor my boat in the fog to my favorite duck blind, go on a milk run for fishing, or find the cheapest gas or avoid traffic jams in the city.

Now comes a new map of my favorite lake. Does life get any better?

Regards,

Wayne
