      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 .

Rod storage

Recommended Posts

I have an '86 Crestliner "Sportfish-type" boat. There is no area to store rods horizontally, only an area to plop them down on each other and get tangled/beaten up. I know there's horizontal rod holders from Berkley and Transom Saver, but those need to drilled in - which would go through the side of my boat.

Anybody know of, or made, any?

I use a vertical storage that will hold 6 rods in front of my console on my Smoker Craft. Doesn't do much for the drive to the lake, because I take the out and lay them on the floor. It would work horizontally if I had a place to mount it.

do you have carpet in your boat? cuz Basspro has some rod holders that i think velcro to the carpet in your boat and then you wrap velcro straps over the rods to hold them in place. check them out. they are on page 79 of the new Basspro spring catalog. the item number is 12-538-147-00

I made a rod rack by stapeling outdoor carpet around a piece of 1/2"X 12" pine and then screwed in the velcro strap style rodholders to it-I think they are called (RodTamers?) but other ones will work with this set up. This rack holds 6-8 rods w/ reels and is great because I can store my rods horizontally/vertically or lean them diagonally if neeed be. I can also take the rack w/ rods on it and lock it in my topper when I'm not on the water and don't want to worry about them. Hope this helps.
