      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 .

If good luck is with me - a lighter or my sunglasses.

If luck frowns upon me - one of my better rod/reel combos, or my new H2O... These things float, right?

Only with a certain type of battery in it.

Probably an ice skimmer. I've already got a good start cause my didgital camera fell out of my shirt pocket at the end of a dock last week. Got it back and had it sitting in the defroster of my truck but no go yet. Haven't mentioned it to the wife yet...

Losing or dropping something down the hole is one thing, but getting it back is another. A Jack grabbed my rod, which I didn't have secure, and took it down the hole as I was 10 feet or so away. I ran and was told it was a perfect dive to the hole and reached down all in 1 motion. Came up with a wet arm. 20 minutes later and 30 feet away, 1 from our group pulls up a jack and low and behold attached to that was my rig. Got the rig back and the Jack. The reel was a little bit sandy, but cleaned up real well.

Try leaving it in the truck in the open on a sunny day. My XM radio got real wet (Wave came over the bow) and quit on me. I did this for 2 days and it came around and works like new.

Ice fishing is just one reason I always carry a spare truck key and house key. Thankfully, I had both spares with me when it happened last year. I heard my keys hit the ice, and as I turned to see where they were, I dragged my foot and kicked 'em right down the hole.
