      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 .

Thieves Steal Boat Fuel Near Mankato

Recommended Posts

Quote:
MANKATO, Minn. (AP) ― The one that got away isn't a fish at the Lone Pine Inn on Madison Lake near Mankato. It's a gasoline thief.

Angler Curt Schueneman says the fuel from his boat and others has been stolen twice this summer, most recently on Sunday night.

He suspects the thieves, or thief, is coming in from the lake late at night and siphoning gas to use in their own boat.

He thinks that because if the thieves drove up the gravel road to the lodge, someone would hear them. And since boat fuel is a mixture of gasoline and oil, it can't be used in cars and trucks.

Sheriff's Deputy Rich Murry says there haven't been other reports of fuel thefts on Blue Earth County lakes.

Schueneman says that until the thefts stop, he's planning to keep locking his fuel tank up in his shed when he's done fishing.

Well I guess nothing is safe anymore. Even with the price of gas dropping people still feel the need to steal gas.

If you can't afford the gas, just keep your butt at home.

I have also heard this from resorts in the nestor falls, ont. area. Guy are pulling in with trolling motors late at night and siphoning gas from one boat to another.

It sucks that people have to stoop so low.

Yeah that is pretty sad. So far this summer I got my gas line for my boat stolen out of my back yard and my wire harness snipped off at the landing. I can't believe it that times are that tough. Wait until gas gets higher, you will hear of people getting robbed before you can get the gas in your tank.

Good time to seed a few tanks with 3/4 colored water, and leave as easy targets.

The culprit will soon show up....stranded...and exposed...with colored gas in his tanks.

Pretty sad that poeple feel the need to steal from each other over gas. Give me a break, it's pricey, but if you can't afford it, then get rid of the boat instead of stealing.

Those low life people have been around since the beginning of time.stealing fuel is nothing new for thieves.and any other things they can see. There are worse thimgs they can steal, like the whole boat.

Don't give them any ideas.

The people who steal might be lurking on the boards here trying to figure out what and where they can steal next.

I know of two tanks that were stolen on Tetonka. There has also been a lot of public water access theft on lakes near Mankato. Lots of crimes of opportunity.
