      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 .

Tubing problem??

Recommended Posts

I have a 18.5 trophy with a 175 suzuki --

When i pull people tubing and I turn sharp I often have trouble getting them outside of the wake.

What is wrong? Is it me? Motor trim? wave conditions? Weight of tubers?

thanks

Start your turn wider and then cut it sharp? That would at least get momentum going in that direction before the force from the boat slows.

I'm not much for water sports though so I may be completly wrong.

You need to start a wide turn in one direction, and as the tube starts to travel to the outside of the turn, quickly cut back the other way. Depending on the wake, speed, tube design, and weight of the rider(s) you may need to repeat this a couple times to break free of the wake. Once they're out of the wake, this same technique will give the "crack the whip" effect you are probably looking for as well.

Hope it helps!

I have the same problem with my 1850 Crestliner. My tow hooks are too low and the rope catches alot of water and it will not allow smaller, lighter people out of the wake. I have tried just about everything to correct this but nothing seems to work.

What length of tow rope are you using? I don't know what is recommended but we shortened ours up and that helped quite a bit with being able to toss the tubes around.

We too have problems with a 1850 Fishhawk. We have ours on a pulley system coming off the tow hooks, but they seem too low as the rope catches in the water. Not a good situation when tubing.

Same problem here with my 1800 fish. A ski pylon would fix it but they all say not to use those for tubes. If the rope wansnt dragging in the water I could really whip that tube around!

A shorter rope may just be the ticket. I'm going to try this out and see if it works.
