      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 .

G3 or Crestliner boat owners?

Recommended Posts

well guys im researchin my next boat and cant seem to be able to decide between the G3 Angler V170T and the Crestliner FishHawk 1650T. I want to know if anyone has a G3 and what they think of it. I like the crestliner better but it costs about 3000 dollars more.
Any thoughts wold be appreciated, also if any Crestliner owners out there would want to weigh in on this subject that would be great.

BBQ, the $ 3,000 is the reason why.

Crestliner is better, G3 is a new lower end mfg. I know how they build Crestliner, and I would choose this brand without any hesitation.

Go to their respective websites and check them out! If I recall some of the Crestliners have NO WOOD in them. That would be a BIG plus. Thats my .02 worth.

I believe G3 is owned by yamaha, which also now own skeeter boats. considering yamahas commitment for quality, I would consider G3 as a good boat.
they are cheaper, more than likely because they are a newer line of boats, and don't have the long lived crestliner name.
don't get me wrong, crestliner makes a very good product, but for 3000 buckaroos, think it through.
myself I have a skeeter 1850, and am very pleased with this rig.
just remeber, because they are owned by yamaha, these boats are still made in america.
not sure if G3 is made by the skeeter plant in texas or not, but I know its american made. and you probally know about the great outboards that yamaha have.
good luck in your decision, but I would also look at starcraft. they have some nice boats at good prices, if you want a mercury motor.

I dont own one but have fished out of one many times, a friend of mine has one, 17' pro style 115 yam 4st. he fishes quite a few tournys every year and to my knowledge hes the only G3 in the bunch in this area. He seems very happy with it! imo, Its every bit fishable as crestliner. and think of all the accessories you could buy for $3000!

    • For gills when using live bait st croix spring bobber rods. for gills and crappie when using plastics I use the snitch. for perch and eyes croxton pond rods in light to med/light   I have about 36 ice set ups but I getting rid    Of some  
    • I love my custom Adam Bricker rods.  The guy just makes rods that look, feel, and preform well. Plus he has some really great options like a rod butt that pops out the back with a fish hook remover. You can also get the option of being able to change out blanks if you want. Which comes in handy if a guy goes from panfishing to walleyes. Plus he stands behind his work. The guy is an artist when it comes to building rods not only with looks, but preformance & function. Nothing else comes close to what he builds. With that being said, I do consider them a luxury item.   I have a slight addiction and have about 50 open water rods and 40 ice fishing rods, that range from cheap to expensive.  rl_sd pretty much said it all though. For $30 or less a guy can get a solid ice rod combo that preforms just fine. One of my favorite ice rods is a south bend Rod and reel combo I picked up for $25. It has an 8 ball Bering reel and a ML Rod that works well for perch and walleye.
