      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 .

Bent decoy keels?

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased some floating plastic decoys and when I got home and opened the box, the keels on most of the decoys were bent to one side as if there was a manufacturing problem or they had been jammed in a box for a long time. Unfortunately, it would be a long drive for me to return them, so I'm wondering if those keels bent to the side are going to significantly affect the performance of the decoys. Any ideas?

If your not hunting in current, it won't be a problem. You could use a hair dryer to warm them up and see if you can bend them back.

Are they weighted or water keels? I would say if they are water keels not a big deal at all... If they are weighted keels you could have some issues with them floating right.

Well, I couldn't bend them back. And, GHG did NOT respond to my email. I put them in the tub along with one of the good ones and I didn't notice any difference in how they sat, though it seemed like if I tilted the ones with bent keels on their side they would bob more when they righted themselves than the good one.

Maybe that's not a bad thing, though?
