      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 .

You could try Lower Twin Lake in Robbinsdale. Brand new ramp with very little traffic.

Long Lake is concrete, double wide with a dock on one side.

I may put in today, or Wed. I've got a Tahoe with a Crestliner, so say 'hi' if you see me.

fdr01 - Don't worry, I was new to boats until a few years ago too. The best thing to do is read the boating rules/regs, watch what others do, and then talk to them.

There's a lot of little things that are hard to pick up on, even with something that seems so simple as dropping a boat in the water. Knowing how far to back your truck in when launching versus pulling out, etc.

My advice is to go slow, have somebody in back watching and giving direction, and take one step at a time...and don't forget to put in the boat plug!

One thing that I've noticed a lot of people doing at Long Lake is they back their trailers up too far and the tired drop off the end of the ramp. When removing the boat from the water, they burn rubber like it's going out of style, just trying to get the tired back on the ramp with the weight of the boat on the trailer.

As previously mentioned, DO NOT FORGET to put the plug in the boat first. When I first launched my boat, I forgot the plug. blush.gif

You may also want to make sure the motor is starting easily. My second problem when I got out there was that the ignition wasn't working properly. So I sank my boat for no reason at all. crazy.gif
