      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 .

Awesome rod holders!!

Recommended Posts

Guest

I'm not sure if this will make sense but here it goes. I saw these really innovative rod holders on a show this past winter. The problem is I don't know what they are called and I can't even find them at Cabela's.

The thing that makes them so special is how they hold and release the rod. They have two metal tabs which are connected, when you set the rod down it hits one tab causing the other to close over the rod and hold it in place. Then when a fish hits all you do is lift up and now you are free. It makes for no more messing around trying to get the rod out and set the hook, you just set it as you are lifting it strait up/out. Hopefully someone out there isn't in the dark like me and could help me find these. Thanks in advance!!

I have seen these rod holders, but never used them. I will try to find them and let you know where to look.

They do seem to be a good idea, I am currently using the Cabela's/Scotty rod holders, where the tube breaks away/upward to allow for a hook-set as you remove the rod, same idea - different materials.

Good Luck - I will ckeck back with any info I come up with.

I don't know the name of them, but I think Thorne Brothers in Fridely has these rod holders (low profile, metal, w/ release mechanism).

Gill,
Thorne Bros. sell Down East rod holders which employ a different mechanism that has the same concept in-mind as the ones I can't find. If the elusive ones that I am searching for don't turn up I will probably go with these.
Thanks for the help guys!

    • interesting web site never spached  a turkey yet....   could be soon!! 
    • Lookin' good....spatchcock that beatch!!!     http://reeltym.blogspot.com/2013/11/the-ultimate-turkey-smoked-on-barbecue.html  
    • I just spent 8 days pheasant hunting in SD last week. Almost every walk in area, CREP area, some waterfowl production areas were cut. Why is that?
    • You wait 'til Delphonic whips you ragged and shows ya his soused-up IQ. But, we MUST remain on the bean soup topic. Mikey is trying to copy it down. I know he can cook it right. Must remain on topic.....
    • You must be as bright as the woman we sold a ham to one time years ago at the grocery store I worked at. She asked the owner of the store who also worked behind the meat counter how to prepare the ham. He told her to put a can of 7up in the bottom of the pan and put in the ham and roast it a 350 degrees for whatever length of time. She looked at him puzzled and said "how do you balance the ham up on top of the can of 7up?" We laughed about that one for years.... Good for you!
    • Copy and paste and put it in yer little Google "recipe box" like I do. Amazing what computers can do.  Other than that, I no longer gives a rat's azz anyway.
    • You do realize that was never the point, right? The problem was not so much that the threads get off topic but that the great recipes you guys were posting weren't being indexed and no one could ever get back to them and put them to use. This post is great and any time I ever want to make bean soup I can just do a search and find it easily. It gets harder when a bean soup recipe gets posted in a good morning thread or something like that. Just sayin".
    • Doesn't stay on the grate real well that way. 
    • Manburgers!!! The only way to cook meat....juicy, grilled burglars!  grill it, baby, grill it!!  
    • Maybe try simmering it over a charcoal bed with some chunks of apple or cherry for a 'real" smoke taste?
