      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 .

Some Idi0t put his car through on Long Lake in New Brighton!

He's lucky he didn't get himself killed! He was in about 18 feet of water and fortunately for him just the front end went through. What an idi0t! For Pete's sake, when I was checking the ice last Thursday I stabbed a spud bar clear through on one jab like I was pushing it through pudding. Long Lake is notorious for bad ice conditions. I just hate it when people die on MY lake. A kid and an old man drowned on Long Lake already this summer. Enough!

It was on the news. The guy was apparently drunk and it sounds like the car did manage to make it to the bottom of the lake after he got out. crazy.gif

Skiinglady,

Is the ice safe over by the double glass door shed just north of the beach?

not sure, but it sounds like someone opened up a heck of a nice spear hole. I guess you just can't coach intelligence.

Does anyone know if they pulled the car out yet? Also, was it straight out from the landing? If it snows again it would be nice to know where to avoid.

All I can say is wow I've been wanting to WALK out there for the past two weeks but have been waiting for to see someone else out first.

I'm not exactly sure where you are talking about but I skied across the ice north of the beach before I made it down to where the individual put his car through. There have been a few people out fishing. Not much catching from the people I talked to.

If you go around the point to the north of the beach and into that little bay before the narrows there is a lot of water on the ice. I skied across it last evening. No fun to ski in but I think the ice was okay. It held me up.

It's straight out from the boat ramp. 150 yards or so. I'm surprised he made it that far onto the ice. There are Thin Ice signs surrounding the spot now.

The Kare 11 news reporter was at the site today and told me that the car sank. It was still sitting on top of the ice when I came across it at 5:00 last evening. I hope they get the car out of there soon. I don't want my kids swimming in 10W-30 and battery acid next spring.

ski-lady,

your talking alot worse in the dong than oil and acid. Lived on the lake for 20+ years and she's got the kitchen sick plus anything you can think on the bottom.

The lake needs a good crappie bed. 18FOW on south end is about perfect.
