      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 for camping supplies and hauling a small boat

Recommended Posts

DCD    0

We recently purchased a Truck Camper that we are looking forward to using this season. We would also like to purchase an enclosed trailer that we can pull behind our Truck that can be used to store all of the miscellaneous camping, fishing or hunting equipment that we might need on a trip. We would also like to be able to mount a 14 ft. fishing boat on a rack on the trailer roof. Would prefer that the height of the trailer be only about five feet so that two people can easily load the boat on top of the trailer. Instead of the trailer consisting of one totally open area like most of the enclosed trailers are that I have seen, we would like the trailer to have several side doors that can be opened to access several compartments in the trailer.

Is anybody aware of a company that manufacturers trailers something like this or a company that might be able to build one as a special order? The enclosed trailers I have seen are normally too high for what we would like to use it for.

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

How about a used pickup service body. Many of them already have rack on top that would work perfect for a boat. They have nice doors and pull out trays.

Google Remackel Trailers in Forest Lake and check out what Dennis builds.

I got a 4'x8'x2' utility trailer from him and love it. I added a rack for the canoe, but it would work great for a small boat too. I was actually thinking the other that, if I got a little Jon boat or something, I wouldn't need to get a trailer.

Use it for utility, camping, ATV, snowmobile...everything I need. Some of the best $$ I've ever spent. This thing will last for a long, long time. It doesn't have separate compartments, but you could talk to him about that - He does custom stuff.

He's excellent at what he does and is extremely cool to work with.

Hope this helps.

Used to see them all the time years ago. Pretty standard enclosed box type trailer with a boat flipped over and hauled on top. Some of the better ones used rollers (probably from an old wringer wash machine) on the back edge to roll the boat on. Wouldn't be too hard to make.

Thanks for the suggestions, I will follow-up with the Forest Lake dealer and also check further into some type of pickup service body that could be mounted on a trailer. I appreciate your assistance.

    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?  
    • Thanks RD!  Good info. That's an interesting technique with the Chatterbait.  I will try it.  If you don't mind -- what kind of trailer do you like with the Chatterbait for that technique?  There will be 3 of us fishing so it will a little tight.  Probably will only bring 3 rods...  I am thinking a Jig rod, T-rig rod (plan to try a Nekko rig with this as well)  and one moving bait rod (Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, Buzzbait, Frog, Cranks, etc.)  The great thing about Ottertail county (like others in Mn), there are a thousand lakes... we will hit 2 or 3 a day.  If we have good conditions (low pressure/moderate wind) we will probably try Musky on Battle Lake.
    • Mahi are hard to catch in Minnesota.  Specialized equipment is required.
