      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 .

lund fisherman:drift socks/anchor

Recommended Posts

What are some set-ups best used on a lund fisherman regarding tying down an anchor/or drift sock on the bow? I don't have a cleat up front and I suppose that would be the best solution. I cannot reach the bow hook used for towing. Just curious if anyone had an alternate method before I drill some more holes.

I know most people probably use a cleat, but I still like to use the bow hook. Just be sure to clip it on before you leave the dock if it's too hard to reach. When you pull it in, leave it clipped to the bow, but be sure to secure it so it doesn't catch air when you are driving the boat.

I myself would just put in a cleat. If nothing else, you could put it on the flat part of the bow where the trolling motor mounts. To me, that would be easier and more carefree than using the front hook.

Good idea of hooking up at the dock. My luck I would forget its hooked and take off. Makes sense just to put a cleat on and be done with it.

Thanks Boys. Good fishing!

I have the strap with the float on it and I tied a carabeener to the rope then clip that to the bow hook.(that way I can hook it to the rear of the boat as well) cleats are easy to add, couple small holes washer-nut your done.
