      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 .

Gravel Roads and Rock Dings

Recommended Posts

If you have to trailer down gravel, what is the best way to keep the rocks off your boat? Is there something out there that keeps the rocks from flying off your tires and into the hull or something that protects the boat? Thanks for your help.

Big mud flaps mounted to your hitch and they make some screens that you can mount on the tongue of your trailer. I cant remember the name but they are made in Canada. Do a google search and you should find it. If I find the name Ill post it here.

I found them and they are called Bow Buddy. Come in many colors and are light and come on and off the trailer very easily. Im in the process of buying a used one.

Only drawback is there are no dealers locally that I found.

I'm sure if a person went where they make boat covers they would be more tha happy to make a vesion of the Bow Buddy

Oh and thankyou for the name of what I was talking about "Northlander". I'm horrible at things like names.

Ive got the Rock Solids and like em. I've got a friend, who in addition to the Tow-Tectors, wraps his trailer frame with packing wrap when he goes into Canada and runs on gravel for a long distance.

Mud flaps or rock guards on the rear of the tow vehicle will work but the best guards are deflectors that attach to the trailer itself.They are about three quarters of the boat length long and work alot better than flaps and rear rock guards.This plastic(some just use plywood)gaurd basically looks like the shape of a boat hull cut in half mounted to the trailer.Hope this helps.c63Google Rocknockers (I think you'll like these babies!!!!)c63Happy trailering!

    • Where's the best place to buy a Honda 2000i generator. I know it's a factory set price for the most part but remembered in the past some local "mom and pops" had them a bit cheaper. Would prefer to give my business to a small business anyway.  I'm in the south metro if that matters at all, but willing to drive.
    • Bear, in real life, i am pretty much the same. Thank you for such an interest in me. Lol. Dave crying but called me a Dick. Typical sugar slave, cannot have a clear perception of reality or life. Good job bud, but that thick skin is hardened fascia from having poor ROM from an inability to move properly over the course of your life.   Roony so bad wants me to give him some attention. Ok little buddy, all you got is Dr roids comments or you got something better to say?  Please give me your opinion of treadmills or be a little ankle bitter some more.
    • maybe a chick.  we had one here for a couple weeks.   
    • Minn Kota  55 Riptide with foot pedal and hand held remote so when you first connect the battery with out the foot pedal connected or any of the control cables connected, the shaft will begin turning to the right. with foot pedal and wireless remote cables connected the unit stops turning but does not respond to the left or right control. It will go forward. it was purchased used and worked fine in April. In July i went to use it and it acted as I described above. I have read several of the forums but did not see the exact same symptoms. help please. thanks in advance    
    • He's that Guy?  The one guy in the world that doesn't like BACON?     May be he's Moslam and can't eat it?

    • We live in town in the Twin Cities metro area.  We've had a female Red Breasted Grosbeak in our feeder for a couple weeks. Don't remember ever having them before. And just one? When does that ever happen with Grosbeaks?
