      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 .

Trailer help needed

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Looking for a small, used flatbed trailer to haul my gear this year. The truck died and is gone so... What I have to spend dictates if I buy a new shelter as well but that also depends on selling the fly tying and rod building supplies, OR may force the sale of the extra sonar. Hate to part with my original Marcum though! Tim, can I get a quickl turn around on the LX3 upgrade? Forgot all about it after getting the LX5! Don't know if I'll lend it out or sell it but either way... Thanks in advance guys. Tim has my contact numbers and email. See you all next weekend. BTW, hoe to get to Albany and Susser's too before Friday. Will update.

Ray, you must have a reciever hitch on what you are driving confused they make a cargo carrier that goes in the hitch mount.You can put your hut on that and strap it down that might be cheaper than a trailer?

Still driving my Saturn. Things didn't got as planned so... "Sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes the bear eats you..." I may just buy a new Clam Scout if it will fit in my trunk. My old Trap Pro won't and I had to wedge it in and tie it down. Very cold! lol Next year.... Thanks for the info!

The shorter tub might make a difference. My old one is the deep tub. Being sideways might make a difference too. Have to measure first. Thanks Steve!

Ray,

Just an idea is all. I would look at buying the new "PRO" if it will fit only because of the room on the sides. The scout is aweful narrow for my liking. The tub size is the same.

Tight Lines,

Steve

Check out Harbor Freight . .with a little time and muscle you can put together one of those trailer kits for around $300. I did and haul my snowmobile on one . . .they might even be onsale now. Just checked and they have an 860 lb capacity with 8 inch wheels for 199.

Well,

Measured out the trunk and my only problem, once again, is that it narrows due to the wheels. Not sure if the newer units will fit. It's kind of an "angle it in and drop it down" deal. The good news is, I emptied the change bottle and there was about $300 in it!! Now, just have to try one to see if it will fit. Didn't make it to the show yet. Didn't feel like walking it alone today and nobosy was free. Maybe tomorrow. Time to check on my Fl. fishing plans too. Have a friend who guides pt. and he's been after me to go visit. Big bass, sea trout and redfish. Wonder if he knows any peacock bass spots too? lol

The Recon will fit, thought about that one, just a little small though. Can deal with it if need be. Thunderman, what are you using? It should fit as as well. Thanks guys! My son works pt at Herb's so there may be a discount or I can order it wholesale from Jerry's and hope the shipping doesn't offest the savings.

Ok, so the scout, recon & frabill commando, will fit and are decent units. The question is...will a trap pro fit, which of the others is the better option and will the shipping offest my savings? UGH! I hate my old truck for quitting at the worst time possible! Well, time to give this some serious thought and take a gamble. Anyone know who's want an OLD but good, fist trap pro? Were talking say early 90's. Really good shape with cover and aquavu mount... Heck, I don't even know what it's worth! Maybe I'll list it on the forum.

F4Walleyes - Are you the guy I met at the show with your son who fishes "my" spot on the river? grin And we met years ago at the derby?

PM's dont work because that feature was put in but never activated.

I have your e-mail now, Fullmoon may be getting rid of a shelter and I know of a few others that might be available...

Fullmoon. I'm interested in that older Pro. I have one that pretty beat up and need a replacement. I like the old ones.

How much do you want ?

Thanks

Franky...thanks for the info about Harbor Freight!

I am looking for a trailer and don't mind putting one together. I was looking at the larger one with 12 inch rims. Those little 8 inch rims just plain scare me!
