      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 .

Was wondering if anyone knew of Ollie or his relatives. Not sure if the spelling is right or not.

Hi there Neiko, my Dad gave me some info on Ollie Eggan and his family. Ollie was the post master of crane lake and had a house by Scott's resort. He had a son Butch Eggan who married Jackie Pohlman from the Nelson resort family. Jackie has passed away but Butch is still a guide for nelsons and should live in the cranelake area. In the early 90's Ollie lived in Virginia but am not sure about now, as he would be around 80 years old or more. Ollie was also one of the very few who wanted the park to be established. Are you a relative.

Yes I am. I am heading up that way this weekend and told my dad cause I remember some talk of having some relatives upthere and he gave me the names. I think he said Ollie had passed on but thought Butch was at a resort. Thanks for the info. Never met them myself but it is always good to know a little about your relatives. My dad had 13 kids in his family so it is hard to keep track of them all. They are cousin's on my mom side of the family. If you hear anything else I would appreciate any info.

Hello Neiko, I don't know much about him myself, but I believe he was an old guide on Crane Lake. I know Butch Eggen who lives in Crane Lake which I think would be Ollie's son. Butch is a guide himself on our chain. Hope this helps some in you quest for info. What are you using the info for?? Maybe I should have asked this first.

Nothing. My dad just mentioned we had relatives upthere at one time and was curious. I don't know as much as I should about my relatives as there are a lot and many have past. Just like to find out what I can when I can.

If you do make it to cranelake, there are only two places that are open in the winter, Handbergs marine which is only a gas stop and artic cat dealer, or the voyageur lodge which is food and bar, but either of those places should be able to give you Butch's location in the area if your interested in a family reunion.
