      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 .

Pedestal and Butt Seat Question?

Recommended Posts

I have a Lund 1800 SE Pro V and would like to buy a pedestal/butt seat for the casting deck. Cabela's has a ton to choose from. What do you guys use and what do you think would work best in my boat? Is it best to get a "Lund" seat or can I go to Cabela's and get a solid one there? Thanks.

I have a leaning post in front of da lund, it works great. You can use whatever you want as long as it fits your seat base. Cabela's has some nice butt seats, that will work great also. I think is going to come down to what you want.

Last time I was in Gander they had quite a few different choices of seats as well. Just like Dan stated, it will ultimately come down to personal preference.

I like 2 versions of pedestals-the one I have in front of my boat is the thickest pedestal seat that you can find since I typically lean or sit up there.

If you always stand and rarely sit- check out "control posts" they have a bunch of angles that you can put them at and are pretty neat.

You can't go wrong with the thickest padding possible IMO- my rear deck has a smaller cushion and me and my buddy fight over who gets the cushier pedestal seat.

I like the bicylce seat version the best. Use it all the time.

Along those same lines, what type of pedestal/post and base (female)do they call the kind Ranger uses? It has the push-lever right above the floor with the hook at the bottom - but what is this called? I don't know if it's Springfield or Swivel Eze. I know it's not the wedge-style, that's what my Lund had. And can you buy the base unit to go in the floor? I haven't seen those anywhere. Any advice is appreciated.

My boat came with one "pro" seat and one chair... pro seat goes in the front, chair goes in the rear... but Im ordering a complete set (2 pro seats along with three seats for the middle of the boat)... No more chair for the rear... just two pro seats for front and rear... You can google bass boat seats and see where it takes you...

    • Well the big tom slipped away from me Man He was big be was coming i ti my decoys but the hens went the otherway and he turned and followed  i drew back and almost gave it a shot but it was a wierd angle on one knee and i decided to not    i will get him friday when i go out next
    • The strange part is the better teams/points we had in the standings the worse we looked in the playoffs. It is probably a good thing to get some new eyes on the team and see what happens. I think someone else will scoop up Fletcher fairly soon, like players and coaches sometimes a change of scenery is in order. 
    • red polls and purple finches here daily for a while now. not many house finches.  brown headed cowbirds are here. flickers. Saw a vireo yesturday. 
    • Here are some pictures from my hunt.
    • I have not seen a redpoll in over a week
    • The finger needed to be pointed in his direction, after a few coaches got it first.  I keep reflecting back on the team of 2002-2003, Marion led the bunch in points but the rest was either rookies,  hand me downs and two goalies that got hot. Throw in guys that weren't afraid with lots of heart and they made it work.. 
    • Same here I set the blind where they like to be. Even if that is in the middle of a 500 acre sod field. 
    • It just gives me more time to pass on the addiction to anyone I can be to come out. 
    •     Yep pop it up and hunt they work great.
    • Fletcher is gone, pretty impartial to this, will be interesting to see who they bring in and what they do to shake up the team. Overall I think he was a good gm but not great, pulled us out of the dark ages but never seemed to get us over the hump. New GM will have a much better starting point as far as players and assets go.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/2018/04/23/wild-split-with-gm-chuck-fletcher-after-playoff-exit/34168091/
