      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 .

Off Topic - Mail Theft

Recommended Posts

Just received a call from the Lakeville Police Department that they have arrested a 16yo kid on Mail Theft..in possession he had bills that I had put in the mailbox at my house. The investigator said to never, never, never put outgoing mail in your home mail box. People steal it, wash the checks, and them write them out for cash. Either that or they steal the information off them, drivers license number, social security number etc...

Just a friendly reminder....
Now instead of fishing I get to go to the bank and close my account and reopen a new account, then change all my direct deposit, automatic bill pay, order new checks, etc.....

Muskieguy, Good information to get out to everyone! I am a Police Officer and see this kind of thing quite often. It is one of the newest and hottest crimes out there which can also result in identity theft. Identity theft can be a real hassel to deal with. Another thing I would like to add is for everyone to SHREAD or tear up any and all account/credit card statements, ect. Some of these people love to dumpster dive and find anything they can with your personal information on it to use for a variety of reasons.

I have almost entirely stopped using checks. All my bank statements and credit card statements are electronic, all my bills are paid online, etc. Really nice features from the bank, and I love the lack of paper piled up all over. Now if I could just get the rest of my utilities to send me electronic bills...

Anyway. Hope everything gets straightened out for you.

According to the cop, this kid was looking for cash only...needed drug money, but Midnight is right, some steal your information from the checks.

Mnrstrider, I live over by Crystal Lake golf course, I drive through Valley Park to drop off my baby girl at daycare..

Am I alone here? I've heard the same warnings about mail fraud and I very rarely leave any outgoing mail in my box. But when I go to try and put my mail in a mailbox it seems nearly impossible to find one anymore. You are almost forced to drive to the nearest post office. When I was a kid it seemed like there was a box on every corner. Maybe that was overkill, but this is just as bad the other way. I had this problem when I used to live in Brooklyn Center and the same problem here in Coon Rapids.

This happened to me once. Another precaution you can take since this happened, is call the major credit bureau's (Equifax, TRW, etc.) They can put a fraud alert under your name, so if any new credit request are made, they will have to call you and verify that you are the one making the request before it is approved.

Good luck.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      get a guide for a day

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.

      Eden prairie purgatory lake is full of carp. You can see them from the dock or the bridge.

          Orvis has some awesome tutorials on their web sites. They teach at whatever level you are in flyfishing. I've gone there many times. They've also got an awesome app with fishing reports including wwater conditions, fly selection and hw to fish it.       Check them out and good fishing.

      I didn't fish any walleye this weekend- only bass. I would fish Friday and Saturday mornings from 530-830 and caught half a dozen largies in the 3-4lb range on a spinner bait. I just got my Garmin fish finder with sideview which will hopefully help me better locate the walleyes. Del, were you marking fish as you'd go over them?

      Latest Landing gossip...... First hearing in trial was july 25th.   Judge took motions under advisement. In the mean time, since none of the locals would work there, they imported a bunch of people on H2b visas as seasonal workers and put them up in a little house in Cook.  Charging them $285 per month.  Like 20 people in the house.   Now many have quit and found other jobs, and some also found other places to live.   They have to hang on since they need to wait until their scheduled airplane tickets.. which they also had to pay for.   That's the news from the Laundromat.... Believe it or so what.
