      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 .

Berkley rod holder extensions???

Recommended Posts

bmc    4

I've got a couple Berkely rod holders mounted on the fast track system on my Lund. The problem is they aren't tall enough so I can have the rods pointed towards the water when I'm trolling cranks.

Are their extensions I can add on to these?

Thanks,

Brian

I dont think so, at least that I have seen. Go get some Scotties and get their extensions. I have 4 of them and love the extra height they give me. Cabelas is the same holder so just get theirs. They are cheaper and always have slaes on them.

Thanks Steve!

Thanks for the reply back on the spinner rig ?'s too! I'd love to get down to the big pond with you one of these days to chase some fish, but summers are impossible for me. How's the multi species angling on the pond in Sept.?

If you've got the bases installed, most rod holders are interchangeable.

My personal preference are RAMS which have a decent extension. I've fished with a lot of rod holder brands and styles and I still think RAMS are the most versatile, and easiest to pull a rod out of.

Berkley, Ram and Scotties are NOT interchangable. I know I have tried it. I wish I could have ran my scotties in all my Ram bases but that wasnt the case. I was at Marine General the other day and we tried the Berkley Rod Holders in the Scottie bases and it was a no go.

Brian E-mail me and I can give ya some advice and maybe get ya what ya need a bit cheaper than you can up by you. Stick with Scotties or Rams. The Rams are higher out of the pack but Scottie makes a nice extension thats like 12" or so. I can send picks if ya need.

I have 4 of the scottys type (cableas labeled) with extensions in my boat. They would not fit in the old Berkely "Fish on" bases, so I had to buy all new bases, extensions, and holders.
