      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 .

Does anyone know the poor mans bidge pump? Or the I forgot the plug and your in 1' 1/2 of water, get ya out of trouble so you do not ruin the day trick? Well I'll tell ya! You get the boat to full throttle, or the fastest your boat will go full of water. This is key, so pay attention. Slowly carefully take and pull the drain plug out. As strange as it might be, the same thing that got you into this mess (in that case do not even put plug back in, get her to full throttle right away) can get you out of it. I my self have fallen victum to the rush at the launch. You want to get out fishing badly or impress your buddies on how cool of a set you have. Most times first trip of year. During the launch time, you forget the one little most important thing of fishing from a boat, "the plug". This little F.M.er tip is from me to you. I hope it will help. For all of you that had know of this trick, you know what I mean.

P.S.,

At least your boats floor and carpet are clean after this. After finding out 1/4 to 1/2 mile from launch that you forgot to put plug in and saving a badly sinking boat before your fishing buddies eyes. 9 times out of 10, the first things out of there mouths after this drama is "at least your carpet is clean"

I had my plug out of the boat for a whole afternoon fishing.

Didnt know it until I pulled the boat out of the river and saw it wasnt in.

The current was enough that with the bow pointed upstream, the plug hole never took in any water. Apparently the current kept the water from coming onboard. Nothing to worry about. No plug needed on a river. grin.gif
