      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 .

Anchor help

Recommended Posts

I have a Lund Rebel 1650 that I am going to be putting an anchormate on this week, any suggestion on a good anchor to use. I have two now, but neither will hold the boat in place. One is a mushroom anchor, the other is a 12 pound 3 claw river anchor.

Danforth and richter are good. But I wonder why a 12 lb river anchor won't hold you now. Do you let enough rope out? We used to sell 9-11lb danforths for 20-24 ft cuddys.

How much rope should I be letting out? We have always had a problem with anchoring our boats, maybe we are doing something wrong.

Barb, you can try to get some anchor chain as well. If you put on a 3 to 4 foot section it will help hold the anchor at the right angle to hook up for you. I go with the Richtor anchors now. I had lost my mushroom one and bought a richtor, little more pricey, but it holds great in rivers and lakes. I think they are close to $60 at Fleet Farm.

3 Times the depth is what I use and have had good luck with.
