      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 tested a Alumacraft Tournament Pro 175 with a Yamaha 80 (i cant remember but i beleive it was a 80 horse) four stroke tiller. Personally I love tiller boats, andt this one was the most fishable rig ive ever been in. Someday when I can afford it, this wiil be the one in my garage. I like tillers because it leaves the boat open without any obstructions, but thats my personal opinion.

i bought the pro v 1775 tiller last year with the 4 stroke yamaha 80 horse and i really like it............ PROS: great mileage, great top end (42 mph gps), no smoke, so quiet you dont know its running, CONS: trolls too fast, gigantic motor for its horsepower (386 pounds), expensive( i will be retired before i pay it off).... but i think the pros outweigh the cons.

I have a 90 Hp Honda on my 19' Pro-V. It is an awsome runner. It is the first 4 Stroke I have owned I am sold on them. I can't tell if it is running or not when i'm in the front of the boat. It only has a top speed of 33mph but the gas milage makes up for it. I can get about 5 full days on $20. I don't think you will be disapointed. They are alot heavier than those gas guzzlin, smokey
2 strokes.

I've got a 75 hp Mariner on a 18'Pro-V and this motor is much easier to handle than the 25 hp Merc. I had on my last boat. My last boat did not have power trim and with the power trim on this boat there is no strain or pull whatsoever (as long as trimmed right). I would not hesitate going with a bigger tiller at all. Good Luck.

How well does a tiller motor that large handle?
I also have used smaller ones and have liked them but I would be afraid of something that powerful without a console. Should I be concerned or not?

I guess what hubcat is asking is more of what Im looking for. the 4strokes I know would be the way to go, however the ones ive been checking out are 2 strokes, used,94-98 lund models, w/90-100 hp, are they tough to hold on to? how about in rough water, are ya wornout after 5 mi. I know my 35 is tough enough in those conditions,

My 90 hp does pull when I'm planing out but once I am up to speed it is very easy on me. If the trim is not adjusted perfectly it can get to be a bear. I would sugest a foot trim it helps to adjust it when you are at high speeds.

I have a 100 hp 4 stroke on a 185 Alumacraft and I will tell you when it is going real slow like not close to plane it pulls. That don't happen real often,for the most part it handles like a dream.I never thought they could put togaather a tiller that big and still be able to handle it.I would'nt be afraid of getting one if I were you

I have a Tourny Pro 195 with the 90hp Honda and would agree that the PROS out do the CONS. Long trips over rough water will give you a sore hand and shoulder, and at low speeds, when your nose is in the air, your vision is limited. Otherwise the boat control and wide open floor plan, makes for a truely enjoyable fishing experience.

If I could have two boats, a console would be nice. But I won't give up the floor room.

    • The Marcus Willimans that plays for the saints is not from Minnesota. The Marcus Williams that you are referring to plays for Houston.     Going to be 52 degrees there????? 
    • Did you ask @Wanderer since it was a picture you took from his post?    
    • Good job Ryan and dad!  Great photo too!  
    • The 30 is a log to have to carry constantly but sure is nice to have to keep the bait lively!  I went last night and purchased another pump in order to plug into the wall...$13 and all I have to do is move the tube from one pump and connect to the other.  I am seeing if I can easily keep minnows alive from one weekend to the next.
    • Wow, someone else who actually watched the video and figured out what Williams did. Thanks @nofishfisherman.   It should never have gotten to that. The Vikings have got to keep playing to win for 4 quarters.   Playing to protect a lead can get you into trouble much faster than it's likely to help.
    • The mistake was getting there too early, clearly if he had continued with his tackle he would have been there way too early and would have an easy PI call against him.  Had he gotten a PI call then no matter what happened after that the vikings would have had a shot at kicking a field goal because a game can't end on a defensive penalty.  By avoiding the penalty he at least forced Diggs to make the catch and avoid any other tacklers.  In most cases the WR is going to catch that ball and get out of bounds right away no matter what. It was just the perfect mix of circumstances for Diggs to take it for a TD.  Had Diggs simply been facing a different direction after the catch he wouldn't have seen he had a clear path to the end zone and would have likely stepped out of bounds to stop the clock. Had Williams not taken out the other DB he may have been in position to make a tackle or at least be close enough to perhaps make Diggs think the best option is to run out of bounds instead of risk getting tackled in bounds.    What I found more puzzling is the overall defense from the Saints.  I've seen it broken down a few times and they had several players guarding against short passes to the middle of the field.  That vikings had no time outs and needed at least 20 yards, the Saints should have been inviting them to through short into the middle of the field not actively trying to take it away.  It appeared the entire play was a complete mental breakdown by the Saints.  It will go down as a great play by the Vikings, and it was, but it was made possible by some pretty big mistakes by the Saints defensive play calling and a single mental breakdown by Williams. 
    • Has anybody found this particular color of rattl'n flyer recently, i am down to my last 2 and i havent been able to find them in pushing 2 years.    
    • Good deal! Did you leave the ice coned up to help keep a seal?
