      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 .

Found Equipment on Otter Tail Lake

Recommended Posts

Coming off in the dark, I found a large, dark colored bag of fishing equipment. If you lost it, call me at (218)736-4952. All you need to do is describe the bag, when you lost it, where you lost it and what's in the bag. I just want the proper owner to claim it and receive his equipment back.

If you are reading this and have a friend that fishes Otter Tail Lake a lot and drives a 4-wheeler, make sure you share this message with him/her.

Sincerely,

Jim Ayres

It's nice to have honest people on the ice... I left my auger and lantern at the access on Norway one year and never seen it again.. or heard of anyone finding it...and my dad also lost his fishing rod bag on west battle last winter too..with his rods in it..no one reported that missing .... so that nice thing to do Jim you should get rewarded!!

Hi Jake,

Thanks for the comeback. I hope that my message gets to the proper owner of this equipment. I hope everyone who fishes Otter Tail Lake checks with their buddies to inform them about my finding. I don't know what or where else to advertise this so the owner of this equipment contacts me. If you have more ideas, let me know.

Thanks, Jake.

Jimbo

Hi Tacklebox7FF,

I am hopeful that folks like yourself tell everyone you know about my findings. The more folks that spread the word, the better the opportunity that the owner of this equipment will hear about it and give me a call. Please continue to help me spread the word. All I want is to put a smile back on the owners face!

Thanks for the nice comments - I'm sure you would do the same thing. It's nice to have fishing "brothers" out there with the same set of values!

Jim the next time you or anybody else from the office goes out to OT, hang up a found poster by the access. The owner or a friend of his/her might be going back out to fish again. Just a thought.

Jim, it's good to know there are honest people out there like yourself. Thanks.

I don't know if it would help, but maybe let the sheriff's dept know of your findings?

Reward: Lost a Glacier Bay rod bag with rods, gaff & misc. Call 218-770-5656

Found this in the midweek from Fergus - Sounds like it could be the guy that lost what you've found.

That is awesome that you are doing this. A lot of slobs would've just called it their new equipment.

Hi Woody,

I've had no luck finding the rightful owner so will let everyone know it was a:

Croxton Ice Bag - 8/ice combo with fish finder case!

I found it walking off the ice from game farm hump on New Year's Eve day.

If anyone knows of somebody that is grousing about losing their ice fishing equipment, have them call me at (218)736-4952. I did also report it to the Sheriff's Department but they haven't, apparently, had any lost reports filed with them either.

I can't believe whomever lost this isn't trying harder to find it - I've been hawking the Fergus Falls paper and the midweek for the lost columns but still no luck.

OT is so travled by distant travelers,If no one finds it is missing, maybe they have too much stuff!!
