      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 .

Tonneau Cover Help

Recommended Posts

Want to purchase a Truxedo tonnenau cover for my chevy pick up truck. Wondering if anyone out there has a silverado ext. cab chevy that has an otter medium.
MY QUESTION:

Can the fish house be put in the back of my truck with the tonnenau cover down?

Help!

I have an otter medium, but I have a Leer 700 Fiberglass tonnenau cover.

Are you asking about putting the sled in the position it would be towed? If so I don't think you will have any problem there.

I am thinking of getting one of these for my next truck...let me know what you think of it. Pros/Cons for sealing, portability, etc etc.

I have an Otter Resort and it won't fit under my vinyl toneau cover. I measured 18" from the bottom of the pick-up box to underneath the vinyl cover. A fiberglass cover may give you an additional 2-3" and the ability to lock it. I personally like the ability to roll up the toneau for larger loads.

This cover doesn't sit below the bed rails, so as long as the otter is shorter than the bed rails, which I think it is than it should work.

I'd consider the Access vinyl tonneau cover before I purchased the Truxedo. After I reviewed the two of them, I liked the Access better.

I have a 01 silverado, x-cab short box with an access cover. My used ORIGINAL medium otter sled with cabin fits under the cover, but I have to unlatch the back and lift up slightly for the front to clear the back bar that goes across the bed. After the sled is in the back latches down without a problem The access cover is maybe about an inch higher than the bed rails. I'm not sure if the otter II sled is any bigger than the original.

    • I've never been to Boone's but I would think that Ahlman's Gun Shop down by Waterville might be similar and another possible resource.
    • Was able to get out these last couple weeks a couple times to enjoy the waterfowl before most of them left for good. Surprisingly was able to find a couple sea ducks on back to back weekends. The harlequin was a first for me in MN and the Long Tail was the second of my life.  Young long tail days before this lake froze over. Hen Harlequin below the St. Cloud darn couple weeks ago. American blackduck - may have some slight mallard mixed in with it as I noticed some green on its head from certain angles. widgeon picture I liked the colors with. This was taken early November.  
    • Hey, I just started mine and did about 5 circles around the yard just to smell some exhaust!
    • Wow. That's like a dictionary.
    • I downloaded and printed the manual. Worth it. It does so many things it would take years to fumble through to find shortcuts and fine tune without it. 
    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.
    • Dude, it's ok shes not on here.  Save that for Facebook! 
    • If you want to be happy for the rest of your life make a Finnish woman your wife. 
    • @huntnfish If you haven’t found another route to go for info, try calling Boone’s Fine Guns in Isle.  No guarantees they’ll know about that beauty but they could know a good resource for you to contact. I’ve never seen the selection they have anywhere else before.
