      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 .

Just want to remind everyone to please be safe on the water. My son and I pulled someone from the water this past Wednesday while we were on the lake fishing. He was thrown from his boat when he let go of the wheel while reaching for a rod that was moving in the boat. He was going full speed and it was very choppy. The boat hit another wave and spun on a dime and he was thrown. We reached him in just a couple of minutes, but he only had a few seconds left. He was gong under as we got to him! He was alone and not wearing a life vest and no kill switch was hooked up. Young guy, in very good shape. Not sure how good of a swimmer, but it doesn't matter if you hit your head on the way out of the boat. When he was feeling better, he told us he had just gotten married the Sat. before and his wife was waiting at the cabin for him. He was only a few hundred yards from there. Fortunately, everything turned out ok. Thank goodness my son happened to look up and see him fly out of the boat. Please be safe on the water!

Good job! A very lucky young man indeed! Your statement: "Please be safe on the water", though universally understood, is, mostly, universally ignored. Until we have laws that require EVERYONE in the boat to WEAR a life jacket while traveling, there will be similar accidents with not-so-similar results. I was traveling with my Dad and Wife on glass smooth water at ~35mph and hit a barge wave I didn't see in time and shot the boat straight up in the air throwing my Wife out of the rear seat and my Dad onto the floor! I would have left the boat if I didn't have a death grip on the steering wheel. I broke the gear shift slamming it back! We all had life vests on. "Please be safe on the water" means "WEAR YOUR LIFE VEST!".

Once again, good job!

And wearing the kill lanyard also good idea. getting run over while floating in pfd because the boat decides to circle wouldn't be too good either.

My son waved over a boat with 5 people in it soon after we got the guy holding on to our boat and had them get his boat. He hit the controls when he flew out of the boat and it shifted into neutral, thank goodness! One of the guys (his parents own Whispering Winds Resort) jumped from their boat into his and got it to the dock we ended up taking him to. We could not get him into our boat and ended up slowly going to the nearest boat dock (with a ladder) using the trolling motor, to get him out of the water. It was only about 100 yards away.
