      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 .

No shop here, monstermoose and namakanwalleye. I have a newspaper office and a home photo studio, but no shop (until I get my garage built next summer). Good luck with your continued Steve hunting. There are a lot of guys named Steve in Ely. grin.gif

I agree, a lot of Steves in Ely, but only a few good ones!

STF, I have read many, many of your posts, and you seem to know very much about the Ely area. How long have you lived in Ely?

I went to College there in 1998 and did not leave Ely until 2002. I was out and about every chance I got!

I envy you, I wish I could still live in Ely, MN. What a great place!

See ya in three weeks!

Mark, I've only lived here three-and-a-half years, but being in the newspaper business is a great way to learn a lot about a small town fast. Plus, I spend most of my weekends traveling the area out in the woods behind a camera, behind a deer rifle, in front of a motor or jigging an ice fishing pole.

Sounds like you live a great life, in a great town. Ely is my most favorite town, and I have been a lot of places. It's just the atmosphere, and of course all the outdoor things to do.

My cousin works for a newspaper company, Lee Enterprises, out of Bettendorf, Iowa. Have you ever heard of it?

I grew up in IL, went to college in Ely, and now work for the National Park Service as a water treatment / wastewater treatment plant operator.

The Ely Wastewater facility is much like the facility I operate in Yellowstone. It's amazing how much Shagawa (my favorite lake) has been studied for its recovery or non-recovery of eutrophication. Phosphorus, has ever changed Shagawa, and the lake sediments in the bottom hold phosphorus. When anoxic conditions occur, meaning no dissolved oxygen, the sediments release this phosphorus back into the lake, as a nutrient to the algae. Its an interesting process, and I take much interest in it, because I've used Shag recreationally for many years.

I have had fish houses on shag 3 winters in a row, doing not bad on the eyes. I also have caught 2 northerns over 20 from shag.

Speaking of shag, did you write the news report on the landing, across from Miners?

Anyway.....Good to get to know you.

Hi Mark. Yes I wrote that landing news story, if you're referring to the one in the Timberjay. I'm familiar with Lee newspapers. I worked for daily Knight-Ridder papers for eight years, so am from that corporate world and we knew Lee well. Also, the LaCrosse Tribune is a Lee paper, and LaX is my hometown.

Shag's pollution and recovery history is interesting indeed. And some of the old names, like Stinky Ditch, still get handed down.

But here were are getting off topic of the original thread. Monstermoose was looking for an Ely Steve with and Ely shop. Anyone??

Did you put it aside so it won't go in the sale, or do you have to buy it back from your wife so you can keep using it? grin.gif

I'm with you, dude. Anytime Mrs. Catfish or Mrs. Northlander sets stuff aside for a garage sale, stfcatfish and Northlander have to do midnight excursions the night before the sale to make sure they don't get rid of those special items.

I tell you, it ain't easy being a man. Our lives are hard. grin.gif
