      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 .

The lake cleanup is scheduled for Saturday March 13th at 1:00 pm. Meet at the Lakeside Park in downtown. The dumpster is usually at the public access on 2nd lake by Willow Point. After the cleanup there is a meal at the Forest Laker. Thanks to all that can come and thanks to Pete from the Forest Laker for the food.

Me and the wife have nothing planned, so we figured to help with the cleaup. Funny, live in Forest Lake, don't fish or boat in it. The lake is too busy in the summer, haven't ice fished in three years, but it is still irritating to go for a walk on the ice and see all the junk slob fishermen and snowmobilers leave.

Anyhow, wat to bring? Do we hoof it and someone picks up the trash bags? Bring a wheeler? Bring trash bags? Haven't done it before, so please give me a heads up.

If you were to meet at the Lakeside Park at 1:00 pm, they will have trash bags to pass out. The dumpster is usually at the 2nd lake public access by Willow Point. If you have a 4 wheeler, then you could bring it along, otherwise there are always people that have 4 wheelers and trailers and you could just ride along on their trailer. I did that the first year and it was nice to meet some new people that way. Met a guy with a Mickey Mouse hat. All of the people are very friendly. There is also a free meal afterwords at the Forest Laker. I live on 3rd lake so I will just be taking off from home and going to the Laker afterwords. Thank you and your wife for coming!!!

Went out till 2:45. picked up lots of stuff. I found a package of jigs, full bottle of propane (1lb), some snowmobiling goggles, and some craftsman screwdrivers. I can believe our own guys are wrecking our own sport. why can't these people pick up after themselves...

What a great day today!

A rough guess was about 50-75 people helping out on the clean up today. We picked up alot of stuff left by anglers and people that just drive the lake, as you can see by Kevins photos. It was nice to see alot of people on 4 wheelers and trailers, as well as familys out on the lake. A few on golf carts on the lake as well. We filled up about half of a 30 yd dumpster including some furniture that was also found on the lake. Thank you to all that came out today and also thanks to Pete from the Forest Laker for the meal afterwards!!!
