      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 .

Small Sport Otter sled modifications

Recommended Posts

I bought the small sport version of the otter sled because it was the only sled I have found for a reasonable price. However, for my wife, dog and I, we could use just a little more room. Plus we are backpack carrying the pop-up shelter and we would like to just put it on the sled and pull.

I was wondering if anyone had any pictures or ideas for me to modify the sled to gain some room or be able to move a few items around to fit everything in. I do have to keep in mind that any modifications must fit in my car trunk or be able to be removed to fit in the trunk. Here is what is we bring, most of the time: Hand auger, two 5 gal. buckets, bait bucket, rod bag, little buddy heater, tackle bag and dog toys. The shelter is an Eskimo Quickfish 3.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Can you provide the dimension of the sled you purchased? Is it the medium version?

Same stuff I carry on my sled. Put the Buckets and Buddy Heater on one side of the sled and the shelter on the other half of the sled. Get some bungee cords and strap it all down....you should be good to go. Also...make sure the sled is loaded slighly "back-heavy" so the nose is slightly lighter than the back-end...makes it easier to drag across the snow.

Finally... get some good quality 1/4" nylon rope and a few big washers to give yourself a rope for pulling the sled. Use the big washers to reinforce the factory holes drilled in the sled. I usually run the rope across my belly when pulling.

Hope this helps and have fun!

If you're going to be investing any $$ on modifying, why not just purchase another sled. When you need extra room, tie one sled to the other or each of you pull a sled. When in your trunk, one sled can be set inside the other. When alone, only one sled is probably needed I assume.

I like this idea the most. It will give you the most versatility.
