      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 .

Very cool Dan. (No pun intended) It was nice to actually see footage during the hardwater season. From the video, it looked like it was relatively easy climbing back out. Another great promotional piece. Make sure that you keep your back room stocked. I have a feeling there were a lot of skeptics watching as well as wives who just may have found the perfect christmas present for their outdoorsman.

I don't think you can buy publicity like that.

I had no idea that a person would pop up like that in the water. My original thoughts were that it was just something that wouldnt sink you. But you popped up like a cork. That was nice to see.

Dan, can you talk a little about the water tightness of the suit? Were you drenched after going in, or did it do a good job keeping the water out?

For a follow up report, you should go to an Olympic diving platform, and jump off. I bet you would shoot back up and out of the water. It would be fun to watch smile.gif

looks as though you guys were having a little fun with that towards the end... but in all reallnes that suit is deffinitely changing how manufacuters are making the products more safe every year.... the next thing you know they will be making ice houses that do the same.... wouldnt that be something. or air bags on cars that deploy keeping you from going window deep....

I almost think the idea of having a car and/or house that would not sink would be worse. Just think of the (Contact Us Please) who would be out there on skim ice. I just got a suit from Dan and I love it. Had my window smashed in at Mille Lacs last night so I had to drive home home with 60 mph wind and was warm the whole way. AWESOME!!

Hi guys,

Thanks for the replies. That is a classic, driving back with the broken window with Arctic Armor on. It is warm, sometimes I will have to keep the window down intentionally, doesn't sound like you had the option Otis frown.gif. We did get wet the other day when we did the story. I went through the first time and came back out with a little water running down by my rear and the back of my legs. Tom had the same experience. We didn't do much more than we would normally have done as far as preparing for the fall, dressed like normal. The second time I went in, I definitely was more wet but I was also in for a while longer. After my second plunge I walked back to my truck and by the time I made it there I was coming around already and was getting back up to temperature. I think the colder the air temp the worse off a person is going to be period. Last year when we went in my chest locked up pretty good, pretty fast. This year the air temperature was warmer and it wasn't quite as bad on the lungs. In fact I think it killed my sinus stuff that I had been dealing with for a couple of weeks. I believe the biggest thing I learned out of the whole ordeal was the fact that ice piks really do work. I saw an ad where Fleet Farm was selling them for $2.99, get them!
