      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 .

I picked up the Eskimo QF II with the bench seats. The unit is currently set up downstairs in front to the bigscreen. I like the unit thus far but has not been field tested. I picked it up at Fleet for 235.00. My only concern will be weight with the bench seat I beleive it is pushing 70 lbs. Which will be no problem on the ice or lite snow cover. However with a foot of snow could lead to mobility issue's.

I have a Fish Trap II (forerunner of the Guide), so I can't speak to either of the aforementioned model's seats.

But none of the 2-person tub portables tow easily on foot with even 8 inches of snow. If you're pulling it with a sled, that's easy, though you better have a travel cover to keep the snow out. If you're pulling any of them on foot, mount skis or hyfax runners on the bottom, or you'll be sorry. grin.gif

Steve its not the tub thats the problem is walking threw the deep snow. My Otter Med pulls ok in snow because it is deep and has a good rounded front to it. A lot of shelters are shallow and blunter at the ends thus harder to pull. Your fishtrap is this way. grin.gif The newer ones aint so bad. Otter and Polar sport sleds pull the easiest for the above reasons. You are correct that you can pull anything with a wheeler or sled. Just have a good tow hitch.

As far as towing is concered by hand unless your into the whole cardio-vascular thing instead of the carbohydrate thing none of them are fun. In terms of fishing and comfort I like mine I did add two more holes in the back rest suports to make it more vertical hope you enjoy your choice.
