      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 .

Hauling Fish House

Recommended Posts

I probably won't know the answer to this until I try it for myself but I'm just wondering what you guys think. We built an 8x10 fish house on wheels and want to road trip with it up to red lake. The frame was welded together by the blacksmith place in alexandria. He said go as fast as you want with the frame. We drove 75 all the way home on the freeway. Now with the house built on the frame, how fast can I expect to travel. We used aluminum studs and tin siding. The roof is tin also. The house is bolted down to the frame very well. Does anyone have a similar setup that they travel around with? What speed is normal and is distance a factor? I'm really clueless about this subject. Thanks!

unless the wheels retract into the inside of the house, the fish house iss too wide to be road legal. 102" max is legal. If you are over I would stay off the freeways and take it easy (55)

I don't own a house with retractable wheels. I have seen many houses with the wheels on the outside being bowed out due to excessive weight and traveling. I wouldn't think it would be very inteligent to just take it road tripping all over the state every weekend. Am I right?

Don't worry about that Bigguns. My buddy plans on keeping it up on Red for the winter. I don't plan on pulling this thing around too much. I am just wondering if anybody has gone this far and what speed they held. We did keep the house weight under the weight the welder told us too, so the wheels should be alright. I will have to measure the total width. I know the actual width of the house is about 7'8 thats 92" so depending on the wheels it will be pretty **** close. Actually probably a little over. Thanks for the info fishtrap and bigguns. It's appreciated.

Hey where did you get the alum. studs from? I am in the planning stages to build one for next year.I found a place that builds trailers with tires on the inside of the frame allowing to go to a full eight feet. 8x10 frame 15 1500.00- kind of spendy. What did you pay for yours. How much does your house way????? Thanks

    • Read my replies to this in the previous posts above. I'm not going to discuss this exact same topic again.
    • Wrong. I like other people's Templeton just fine.   It is their advertising I objected to.   After all, their booze came from the former Seagrams distillary of industrial scale in Indiana, as did a number of products that advertised and labeled in a manner that would lead one to think they were a "craft" type product.     Clever marketing and not much else.    Read the bottle carefully.   See where it was distilled, not just where it was bottled.    But if you want to pay inflated prices for industrial products, go ahead.   Personally, Evan Williams is acceptable to me and is sold at a reasonable price.   If you want fancy hooch, make sure you are actually getting fancy hooch.  
    • I cant see them either but I am imagining its a pretty cool looking gun
    • Am I the only one who can't see the pictures?
    • This ^^^^^^^^^^  
    • If you want it for lights look into a photocel timer.  Mine turn on at sundown for 2,4, or 8 hours.
    • Take it to that pawn shop in Las Vegas. They will bring in an expert to tell you it's history,give you a low ball offer once they find out and then you can just walk. 
    • I've always been partial to the fold down couch in the back but I'd want to have storage under it and a fold down bunk above it. One thing to keep in mind is the heater.  I know you said the current heater stays for this season and maybe next but if you're doing work on the layout now you should probably plan for the new heater now even if its not going in for a year or two.  You'd hate to do all this work adjusting the layout only to find out you should have done something differently to accommodate the new heater. 
    • If mine,  I would add those drop down bunks and some pedestal boat seats.  With a smaller house like that I would want as much open area as possible.  I think those big couch/sofas take too much room.  You can always drop the bunk and take a snooze without taking up floor fishing space.  Just some thoughts.......
