      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 .

Ok so my wife and I are thinking about getting a camper in the next year or so. What we want is the style with the hard sides with the pull out/ fold down beds on the ends. Oh yeah per my wife it must also have bathroom/shower area!! I dont know what the exact name of these modles are? I beleive somewhere I heard them refered to as Hybreds? Any help would be great!! Also would like a few ideas of dealers who have good reputations for sales and service after the sale, from the South Metro down to Southern MN area. Thanks in advance!!!

WIWF hit it right on. They are commonly called hybrid campers or expandables.

Rockwood Roo, Aerolite Cub, Jayco, STarcraft and a couple more I'm forgetting.

I bought a Rockwood Roo 19 this year. I think they are great and you'll see my comments in that other post. Ours has a bathroom with shower, kitchen, dining table and a couch along with the two fold out queen size beds.

My brother bought a hybrid from Gag's in Mankato 3 yrs ago. His family really likes it. 3 queen size beds flip out. It fits his family well. I bought my 5th wheel at Gag's also and they have treated me well. Both are made by KZ and came with a 2 yr warranty.

I looked at Gag's HSOforum. The KZ hybrid has an interesting design. The beds are a slide-out style instead of a tent style. Is this easy to setup?

I see they are somewhat heavy compared to others.

My brother has a Coyote by KZ which is the tent style hybrid. They do make the hardside one also that slides out the back which is more of a travel trailer with a rear slide instead of a slide on the side and it would be heavier than the tent style.

Most of the newer pop ups (non hybrids) have showers and toilets in them now. Something to keep in mind as they are relatively cheap compared to alot of other options out there.

    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?  
    • Thanks RD!  Good info. That's an interesting technique with the Chatterbait.  I will try it.  If you don't mind -- what kind of trailer do you like with the Chatterbait for that technique?  There will be 3 of us fishing so it will a little tight.  Probably will only bring 3 rods...  I am thinking a Jig rod, T-rig rod (plan to try a Nekko rig with this as well)  and one moving bait rod (Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, Buzzbait, Frog, Cranks, etc.)  The great thing about Ottertail county (like others in Mn), there are a thousand lakes... we will hit 2 or 3 a day.  If we have good conditions (low pressure/moderate wind) we will probably try Musky on Battle Lake.
    • Mahi are hard to catch in Minnesota.  Specialized equipment is required.
