      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 .

Your Trash on Browns Bay, Mtka

Recommended Posts

SportFishin'

Don't worry my 11 & 6 year old picked up YOUR trash upon arriving at our fishing spot on Sat.afternoon close to Little Horseshoe Reef in Brown's Bay on Minnetonka.

When asked by my boys "Who would do something like this dad?" I replied "Losers!" so you can rest assured your Dick's sporting goods bag,styrofoam packaging material,cans,butts, & other misc junk were picked up & hauled home for YOU by 2 young cub scouts who know the meaning of "Leave No Trace".

Off my Soap Box for now,

Chris

Loosers is right. Thanks for helping to keep the lake clean. I carry a bunch of plastic grocery sacks in my car for just this reason.

Personally, I find them an eyesore, but probably not harmful. If that's the worst trash that we had to deal with we wouldn't have much to complain about.

I get really bugged by guys who leave their cigarette butts on the ice though. I hate coming along to a spot where someone had a portable and finding their ciggy butts. Geesh, drop them in a pop can and take them with you.

Or do like I did Sat....My truck was parked right by. It has an ashtray in in. Very easy to use. I had to walk all of 10 feet or so. My newest is the dog piles on the ice. It can't be good for the lake and it looks ugly. Use a scooper please. You have to clean it up when walking the dog in the neighborhood, so why not on the lake?

I was out on Bald Eagle on Super Bowl Sunday around the bulrush island between the launch and cigar island... NEVER SEEN SO MUCH TRASH! I think every other frozen over hole had at least a couple beer cans laying around. I picked up some, but it was literally a couple acres covered with cans and dorito bags half frozen in the ice. Totally lame.

Yeah, its bad enough they leave it laying on the ice. But put in a fish hole? Then good samaritans cant even deal with it. I cant comprehend why people enjoy the outdoors when they dont respect it??? And what is it with Bald Eagle? I was there once this winter and chose not to go back. All that trash, people doing 100 mph across the lake? What can we do as fishermen to end this? I guess the majority of us who are respectful of what we have will forever need to pick up for those who dont care. SAD! But, thanks for bringing this up, and great job teaching your family the right way!

We had a few people think it was cool to drive by people at 40mph right through where they are fishing and about 5 feet away from myself kneeling over a hole this weekend. Slow it down a bit.

I try to pick up garbage, cans specifically if I see them. But there's only so much you can do.
