      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 .

Portable boat

Recommended Posts

I've recently downsized by cars due to long commutes and no longer have a tow vehicle, so I'm looking for suggestions for a portable (preferably two person) fishing boat that can either be car-topped or is inflatable. Thanks for the help, love the site, sometimes it's a miracle I can get any work done!

There is actually a boat out there called a Porta Boat. You can google it and see. I was going to get one a while ago but got a different boat. I've seen them around here out fishing and they are pretty cool. Not sure what your budget is, but for the money they are nice.

I recentely just bought a innflatable boat, and love it. I went to a gander, and got the "3" person boat, called, the challenger for $50. it fits two with gear somewhat comfortable. I think its a good deal.

As others have said, there's no reason you couldn't pull a lighter weight boat behind a car - something simple - bench seats, motor, battery & gas tank, but I think it'd be better than fishing out of a inflatable boat (no offense) or the collapsible boat.

here is my "new" boat. its a 68 Alumacraft and has a 6HP Johnson. I pull it behind my Ford Ranger. I really dont see the need for an inflatable. I can shove this thing on and off the trailer myself and Im only 150lbs. put a hitch on your car and pick up something like this.
