      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 .

The problem I see with a ranger(or any of that style) is the sheer size of the machine. Standard doors that are sold at the fish house manufactures are too small to fit them in. You would either have to pull it to the lake seperate, or customize the house to fit the ranger in.

Just not worth it to me.IMO

Have a friend that uses one and it looks slick. He has the box and the portable to have stuff in. Could pull the wheelhouse easily, but wouldn't fit inside. If he met you at the lake it would be perfect. He uses a trailer for the ranger and can get portable in the back of the truck.

Does your friend have any issues trailering it to the lake and does it feel its any more work than a wheeler?

What size trailer does he have for it and I'm assuming its a utility trailer.

i believe the ranger might fit in the bed of a pickup i know a razr will for sure but not sure on the regular ranger

Rangers are over 4 feet wide. Any pickup bed between the wheel wells is 4 foot. Rangers won't fit in the bed of a pickup.
