      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 .

After watching the post on Falling through the Ice:

http://www.fishingminnesota.com/forum/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=457381&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=1

Has anyone consider using any type of Floatation. The last thing I want to do is carry anything more or be more bulky, but given the thought it could help you survive, It begs consideration...

Any thoughts, Ideas....

The first few times out every year I wear my life jacket. I usually am fishing on a small lake by Walker that freezes early but it's no major hardship to put it over my jacket. If you think about it it's pretty amazing that we don't wear some type of floatation

I have and use a Mustang survival (classic) jacket for any time I'm fishing and the potential for survival in the water is limited due to cold weather. Basically early spring, late fall and early ice this jacket is on my back and it's a comfy and warm jacket. Check out their site. Spending money on life saving equipment is a good investment.
