      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 .

Slower Traffic in Left Lane

Recommended Posts

1st I would like to apologize to Hanson for being part of highjaking his gas pump thread.

A couple of posters in the other thread and a few e-mailers had questions about the context of Col. Loeding's comment that people who drive slower than the flow of traffic in the left lane are some of the most dangerous drivers on the road.

He was speeking at a meeting of a 4-k orienteering group a couple of years after he had retired as the head of the MN Highway Patrol. Alot of the kids were 14 to 15 and would be driving soon, so he was talking about safe driving practices.

During the Q & A session after his talk one of the fathers bragged that he helped the highway patrol by driving the speed limit in the left lane to slow down speeders. Col. Loeding replied that people driving slower than other traffic in the left lane were some of the most dangerous drivers on the road. Enforcing speed laws should be left to the state troopers and other law enforcement agencies not self deputised speed police.

This subject has been beaten to death a thousand times and really doesn't belong here. Everyone has their own opinion on this and we all think we are right. Let's concentrate on a more docile subject like fishing.

I'm not all that impatient, but for the times that people need a bit of a lesson, I have the same horn in my truck that you might hear from a fire truck. I can only imagine what has been soiled when I drop hammer.

Ok, here it what ticks me off about this. When on an extended trip, I use the cruise control a lot. I'll be on an interstate or whatever in the middle of nowhere and approaching a slower moving vehicle. I move over to the left lane and start over taking the slower vehicle, then out of nowhere there is someone racing to get somewhere and feels that I am now impeding his progress.

So if I understand this correctly, I need to drop my CC and kick it down to get out of your way?

I would either step on the gas to more quickly pass the vehicle or step on the brakes do drop back in place behind the vehicle I was overtaking. It isn't the difficult to get the cruise going again.

    • I am up next Wednesday... but I got a niece to get out prior to me... hopefully Sunday.  Thanks guys
    • In SD you can only buy one any weapon Black Hills tag in the spring.  There is a state-wide archery only tag that can be used out here as well.   Usually it is tough to get just one bird, so I don't buy an archery tag.   This year we planned on rock climbing after shooting turkeys, so we are kicking that off a little quicker than expected.   I do not believe it is possible to buy non-res over the counter tags, even though it is not a lottery, and buying online requires shipping to an address that takes a few days...   I also did not bring my bow, but if my uncle has a bow for me to use I might call game and fish to see if I can buy an archery tag in Rapid and hunt a bit each day before we go climbing.  
    • before...or after happy hour!!!!!!!!!
    • About as good as a day can get. Congrats to both of you. Your turn next pumper?
    • saw the first frog today!!!

    • What a difference a week makes! Even far northern Wisconsin is finally making it to spring. With temperatures in the 50s and 60s, snow is melting quickly in the Northwoods, although it isn't gone yet and it may be awhile before its gone in the woods. Northern lakes still have up to 2 feet of ice and it's looking at this point that some lakes will still be iced over when the general fishing season opens on May 5. SLIDE SHOW | 6 photosWhat a difference a week makes!With all the snowmelt, waterfalls have come to life. Last Friday both Big and Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park were completely ice covered, but with warmer temperatures, they both came to life. People were eager to see the transformation with more than 385 vehicles visiting the park over the weekend to view the falls. Both Forks of the Flambeau are also open now and their falls are roaring.As things are drying out, we're also moving into the spring wildfire season. In the last week 60 wildfires burned 129 acres in DNR Protection Areas. Half of the fires were caused by debris burning. Stay aware of fire danger and burning restrictions by searching the DNR page for keyword fire. .
    • Very productive day all around! 
    • Smile says it all. Good job Dad!
