      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 .

Coleman bass classic 10 ft

Recommended Posts

I will be purchasing one of these soon and want to know if anybody has anything to say about them. My biggest concern is transportation to my local waters. I have researched some canoe carriers and wanted to know if anyone had any advice on what to look for to make transporting easy. It is 10'2" long and 50" beam. All input appreciated.

Thanks.

Somebody has to have experience with these. It is very similar to the bass hunter boats and the bass raiders by pelican. Any input is appreciated.

I had to go look this boat up to see what a 50 inch beam looked like. I was expecting a crazy looking kayak but these look pretty neat. Are you really able to put something like this on top of your vehicle? I would think a 150lb boat would be well over the weight restriction of most roofs no to mention extremely difficult to get up there. What about a single jetski trailer?

My plan for this rig is taking it on my local area smaller lakes so my priority is finding something for hand hauling like a dolly or cart. I have seen quite a few dollys and carts but not sure about them because of the 50" inch beam. My garage space is pretty limited so a trailer may be out of the question unless I get a folding one.

You could always make one your self, i have seen on the st croix forum a guy who made one and it was really neat and sounded easy enough to build. Couple bike tire and some sort of frmae whether you have one welded or make one with some kind of spare parts at least you could custom fit. not to mention a fun little project. Hoipe you find what you are looking for.

You could use just about any 2-wheel setup with an axle, provided it was wide enough and strong enough, and attach it to one end of the boat using a ratchet strap to hold it in place.

I used the chassis from an old bike trailer, and beefed it up a bit with 2x4s. Added some foam padding, and a ratchet strap to hold it in place. It works pretty well, although I think I might have to beef it up a bit more. The best part is it fits in my canoe, so I don't have to leave it on shore or run it back to my car. While that particular setup might not work for a bass boat, I think you can get something together for relatively cheap.

    • The building codes are really very important in order to keep the property safe. We need to upgrade the house acoording to these building codes.
    • And Del says ya can eat as many as ya want now!!!     
    • great cheap treat those smoked eggs.  
    • I actually prefer Honeycrisp, because of the sweet/tart flavor. Sweet tango ain't bad either. The others get TOO mushy and seem to lose flavor. But, it's a personal preference. Someone'll whine about there are better baking apples.  Made my apple roast the other day with the Honeycrisp, but put it in the crockpot instead of the oven. Came up with this 6-7 yrs ago.  And there's even a picture of it, since words give you so much difficulty, leech.            Reb's  Apple- pork roast


        One boneless 2-3 lb Pork Butt Roast Two cups  Fresh Apple Cider Rosemary Seasoned salt Black pepper to taste 4 oz Cinnamon Apple Sauce (These are the “Snak Pak” size cups) One  large Yellow Onion, sliced thin              Marinate the roast in the cider in a Zip-Loc bag, in the fridge, for 6-8 hours, turning frequently. Place roast in a greased baking dish, with some of the marinade. Sprinkle liberally with seasonings and lightly with the Rosemary.  Place thin layer of onions on top. Pour apple sauce over top. Put in a 300* oven for 45 mns to one hour, uncovered.  Cover and cook  for30- 45 mns- longer or until meat thermometer registers 155-160*. Do not overcook. Let sit covered for 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!  
    • @RebelSS, do you recommend any specific type of apples?
    • I forgot to put in the segment winners Spring        Juneau4 Summer     Henry's Heroes Playoff        BlackLundProV
    • Well quit hijacking the thread!!! we'll find someone serious sooner or later!
    • They can explain that over and over and I’m not buying it. I changed my ducer to the 12 like my 18. 
    • So your trying to work out the picture problem-right?
