      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 .

Alight! I need a new phone, too!

Seriously, though. Sorry to hear that, man. Rig yourself up a pole with a fixed fork on one side of the end, and a hinged hook on the other forming a hand that's moved using a string. Wouldn't be too hard to rig up, and I'm sure the phone will work fine once dried. An underwater camera would help, too

I thought I was going to be in the same situation last week. I was spearing up north and my phone fell in. With a spud bar and ice scoop and duck tape, we got it outa there. The phone still works.

Normaly when a phone gets totaly submerged underwater it's junk. Of all the people I know who have had phones go totaly into liquid one in ten work afterwards.

There is a little round indicator on the back side of cell phones. If the phone has been wet it turns pink or red and then the manufacturer can deny the warranty.

I work outside year round and in the Summer I've had a couple phones get wet from sweat that failed.

I guess I'm not as unlucky as I thought! I jumped in to save a buddies boat from hitting the rocks a few years ago now, phone in pocket. After about 2 hours, I was using it like normal with no ill effects. Like I said, guess I was just lucky. That's a first laugh

I have heard the key is stopping all the juice from flowing through the circuity as fast as possible. I have soaked a few in my pockets while wading and dropped a couple in water (including the toilet once). I pulled the battery immediately and let them dry out a few days. The phone I dropped in the toilet survived it but all the others were not so lucky. I think exposure time plays a big role. Not much help for someone whose phone has been sleeping with the fishes for a few days, but you never know and we all know somebody like hovermn.

I would try to get it and see what happens, worst case scenario you pick up some of your trash and help to keep the lake clean.

Yeah, I did pull the battery out, but only after about 10 minutes or so. We had to get the boat situated first, and I really didn't think about the phone in that situation. While drying, I pulled everything off of it that I could and let it bake in the sun for 2 hours. There was a little condensation in the screen for a day or so, but that cleared up.

This reminds me of a story a car salesman told me once. He dropped his phone in the lot towards the beginning of winter. After being plowed, salted, and sitting in a big melting pile of snow, a lot guy found it the next spring and gave it to him. I guess it was all beat up, but he let it dry out, then plugged it in. Wouldn't you know it, the thing fired up for him, and I guess he gave it to his son. Crazy!
