      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 what happened with the capsized boat on the north side? We saw it capsized with stuff floating all over. Hope everyone was all right

Saw this boat also. Took awhile for the sheriff to get out there. It was up on shore by then. They must have to wait for the wind to calm down to get it out. Boat was still floating just motors and windshield sticking out of the water and all the boat equipment floating around. Scared my son a little, he thought we should go in. Would like to know what happened also.

I believe another boat went bottoms up earlier in the day on Saturday as well. Both boats were in the gap area. I think the combination of that SE wind and all the boat traffic in the gap created some swells that were a little tricky to navigate. Depending on the load in the boat and the way you take the wave it doesn't take much to send a bunch of water over a gunwale or transom. I hope everyone made it out of the lake with nothing more than a bad scare and a better respect for wind, waves and lifejackets.

From what I heard, that group was camping on the north shore somewhere and overloaded the boat with camping gear up front and was heading back to the landing. They took a wave over the bow and went down. I heard an uncle made a heroic grab and saved a nephew before he went under. It's amazing the number of guys that don't take the extra time to throw on a life jacket when the big lake is rockin'.
