      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 .

generator- coleman

I have a coleman powermate 5000, it is loud. I use it for stuff at the cabin, but as for ice fishing I think I would find something a little less noisey! Then again the 1850 maybe alot quieter!

Yes, it's quite loud. These only run at high RPMs....as loud as a typical lawnmower. A friend owns this generator and I've used it several times to power my pick-up camper in remote areas. It runs excellent and I've found it very reliable. They do go through a fair amount of fuel too.

If you are fishing, the Honda by far the quietest, lightest and superior for much more enjoyable fishing.

I have heard the Yamaha generators are quieter then the Hondas, and have a good reputation, something to look into!

I heard the yamaha 2400 run and it is almost as quiet as the honda 1000. I think you would be pretty happy with a yamaha.

I was just researching the yamahas last night. the 1000 and 2000 are comparable to the honda, but the yamaha has a bigger motor but same run time with the same noise rating.

If you get into the Yamaha 3000 (or 2800)the Noise rating is 51-58 which is lower.

I am leaning toward the Yamaha myself after doing the reading last night.

Ok, it's as loud as a lawnmower without the mower blades turning. grin With a 3.5hp Briggs and Stratton motor, it's very similar to the B&S motor on my small push mower.. wink

We bought a coleman this past winter to use at our fish house. After two weeks our group ordered a Honda.

Please, generator guys, be courteous to your fellow fisherman. Buy a quiet one....

I have a question, for those of us that have waisted our money on the loud generators, is there a muffler that we can buy to quiet them down some?

I think there are mufflers you can buy. I've also seen guys use old fridges with holes in them for ventilation. they put the fridge on it's back, put the generator in fire it up and close the lid. works well, a guy by my house on mille lacs did that and it worked well. I even have a friend with an old fridge for free if you want it!!

I dunno. One would think something could be rigged up.
