      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 .

Gull Lake fish house break in

Recommended Posts

JConrad

Someone tried to break into my fish house either late last night or early this morning.

All who have fish houses on Gull be aware that we now have a problem on the lake.

I am located on the southern 1/3 of the lake not too far from Squaw Point.

This is the first time that I have had a problem with this in years... Car and/or truck tracks up to my house so it was not someone on a snowmobile or wheeler.

Sorry to have to report something negative!!!

That really sucks. I only have a portable so I dont have that problem. I always think it would be nice to have a good wheeled shack until I hear something like this. If I did have a shack on the ice I think the best thing to do would be take everything with you and leave the house unlocked. It would be nice to leave everything so it is ready for you the next time but its not worth the risk. Same problem, different year/lake.

No Jason it could have been a lot worse... I had a fish house on Minnetonka totally trashed quite a few year ago when I lived down there...

I am not leaving much in the house when I leave at night. I learned that the hard way on Minnetonka!

I wonder if someone makes an alarm system for a fish house?

Pretty sad when you live in this wonderful area and you have to worry about stuff like this...

Guys, thanks for the concern!!!

JC, I've been thinking about an arlarm system. If you know how to work it, you could have a magnet strip on the door and when the magnets are seperated, it sends a signal to a cell phone and calls yours.

It sounded like a good idea when I told it to myself but I can see problems with it already.

We were out on the lake off of the White House Bar on Friday - Sunday. On Saturday we heard an alarm go off most of the morning. Later that morning one of the owners of a fish house came over and said he was broken into Friday evening or Saturday morning. Also we noticed a fish house next to it with it's door opened so we went and closed it. It looked like the house was ransacked.

JConrad, thanks for the heads up on the break ins... as soon as I saw your note I took off for Gull to pull my house home. Randallt, I drove from Ernies along the shoreline down to the White House Bar. I didn't see any breakins but I didn't drive totally around every house.

Thanks again JConrad... I hope there wasn't much damage to your house.

Thanks for the info guys. I don't know where white house bar is. My house is along the shore toward Bow Tie Flat, but not quite to it.

I have a friend in Baxter that is on his way to take a look and is going to fish it the next couple of nights. He obviously has a heads up to look for unusual behavior.

Where is White House Bar?

White House Bar is north of Ernies but south of the boe tie bar on the east side of Gull. It is shore line structure that goes out into the lake with 2 little bars further into the lake. There were about 5 houses along the white house bar this morning and now it is down to about 4 houses.
