      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 .

Otter Fish houses seats

Recommended Posts

Purchased new Otter Lodge house, debating between bench and single seats that swivel, like the way the bench stores in place, but wonder about comfort between the two. Any one out there with experence for some pro's and con's?

I have both styles. The bench is nice because it's mounted, can seat three if needed and tilts up easily for acess to the sled.

The swivel seat is comfy and the base isn't bolted in. You can leave it out very easyily. The seat base can fall into the sled when towing across the lake since it isn't bolted in.

I like fishing out of either one.

snowfighter,

I have not tried the bench seats, butI have tried both styles of the swivel seats. I would go with the standard ones. Very comfortable and take up a whole lot less room than the other ones with the cup holders and tray. Also they're about 1/2 the weight.

I've got the swivel cushioned seat with the plastic base. So far, I like it a lot and it has a cup holder. smile.gif

I'm going to figure a way to temporarily attach the base to the sled when traveling as it takes up room inside the sled.

Thanks for the input I think I'm leaning toward the bench since it can stay inplace and you don't have to remove and store, I hope I will be catching fish and won't notice that it's not as compfy.

Snowfighter, I didn't say but, I think the bench is comfy. Little kids have a harder time since it sits higher but they just put their feet on the sled's edge when mine are fishing with me.

I went with the bench seat and think I am going to like it.Its realy comfy and I already tested it for a knap.Works good! smile.gifYou can still access your minnow bucket from the front and there is no prblem getting to other stuff behind the seat.I am also making an auger rack that will attach to the bars that support the bench.That way your auger isn't bouncing around in the bottom of the sled.
You can order stuff right from their HSOforum.

Dennis Steele , if you get the bracket made for the auger please post a picture here. I tried to figure out something earlier but gave up . I just tie the auger handle to the bracket now so it won't tip over and spill gas.

    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
    • Lots of bears being seen around Princeton not on baits just roaming around.
    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.      
    • Because it was about a decade ago I was on that goofy end of town. I knew it. Now yer gonna  waste time fooling around with that souse-o-matic on that poor corn, when two ears in the 'wave, in a covered glass dish with some water for around 3 minutes comes out perfectly delicious. 
    • Let us know by first ice - just saying.  But he is great to work with so don't get me wrong.
