      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 .

for how much?

Do yourself a favor and find one of these sno-boat explorers at one of the Gander stores for $149,..same house, just without a door and it has black canvas.

You can have a door put in for $0~$50

I like my guide. I think the door is a must, so you can bank the house in when it is very cold. The door however is not designed very well and is a little tough getting in and out of. I use it mostly with just myself fishing in it and it is nice to have the xtra room. The size is just right to fit your auger as well without it hanging out. You can also fish 2 pretty comfortably in the unit. Great unit, the seats are better than any of the others I've seen. You won't be dissapointed with the guide. I'd probably look at the otters as well, but keep in mind you need to put in the seating system for the otter (xtra work and $).

Chem, I experimented with different door layouts before I sent mine in. The way the plastic windows are on the guide/explorer you really can't put a big enough "D" style door (which is ideal)on it without cutting through a seam and having your zipper running along a pressure point. I went with a "U" shaped door that started just to the outside of the windows, careful not to have it running into the inside velcro straps that hold on your support poles. I also thoought about putting one in back but that would be cumbersome to step over the set rail and your gear to get out. You can check mine out this weekend. I

Guides are a good house. A lot of room for one person and room enough for two. Easy to transport and very durable. I fish out a guide type model and I have been for the last 6 years. I plan on purchasing a new one next year.

Good Fishin, Matt.
