      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 .

Clam 1060

Recommended Posts

Has anybody out there purchased or fished in the Clam 1060? I was interested in purchasing one but wanted some feedback first. Is it very portable? Can it be pulled across ice by hand? I need the extra room it provides, but not at the sacrifice of ease and portability.

Thanks for the input!
Good Fishing

Here's a link to a post from a week or so ago by someone who has one of the 1060's.

The plastic footprint is the same as the clam 5600 (5'x6') with a 2'x 5' open floor area on the ends. Hope this helps.
They looked nice and roomy for 2-3 guys, but more than that and it seems you'd be tangling lines a lot.

You know,
I really liked that unit. Plenty of room and well built.

I would not count on it being too easy to pull. It's more of a haul in your truck and unload type of unit. Pulling behind an ATV or snowmobile shouldn't be too bad either.

I wouldn't want to pull it 100 yds by hand too many of times.

I have used mine a half dozen times now and have only compliments. It is very roomy, 2 guys and 3 kids under 7 and we all fished without too much trouble. If you just have 1 or 2 people it is like a hotel room. Just have to figure out where you want the kitchen sink.

The only draw back, and it gets better each time, is the few extra minutes it takes to set up. The quick up ends go up easy enough, but then you need to put in the spreader bars. I have it down to about 5 min or less now. I definately feel the few extra minutes are worth the room and the small package that it folds down to.

As far as portability goes, my friend and I pulled the clam and my small otter sled full of stuff about 1/2 mile. They were about the same for pulling.

Hope this helps, if you have specific questions email me at ifalls_archer@yahoo.com
