      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 .

Traveling Pro

I have a question: I have a Fish Trap Pro and am wondering if I should get one of those blue covers - reason is, I travel several hundred miles during the holiday season (my folks and wife's folks on opposite ends of state.) We have an SUV with luggage rack and when full of baby's stuff, only leaves the rack for my fish Trap. Will these covers travel? Or are they not worth it at 70 miles/hr?? I'm assuming I'd need to tie it down anyway, but..

I'd get the cover. They stay on pretty well, but I usually wrap a couple of bungee cords around mine when I'm heading down the road. Without the cover the canvas on your fish trap will whip in the wind(even if you think it's tied down well) and may get torn. I have a fish trap III and I made my first outing without the cover and I had to stop about 4 times to resecure everything. Got the cover and it's worked well for me.

I just got one for my otter this season, and for good reason too. I no longer have to worry about the minnow bucket cover flying off. but heres the main reason. I was up on Mille lacs pulling my otter with my snowmobile. So we're on our way back to the truck and I go to take the buckets out, Well, there were no rods left! I back tracked and found a trail of rods an equipment about 1.5 miles long. Just get the cover. It keeps your stuff in. and keeps the snow and slush out.

Sold. I needed to hear that - it's all what I thought- keeps your stuff dry and in order. I'm assuming it's just got the elastic type ends that just slip over the whole unit, right?
