      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 .

Manual Anchor Crank? I think....

Recommended Posts

I have seen these on a few boats. The crank that it mounted in the back of the boat, that raises and lowers the anchor that is on the front of the boat. So you don't have to get up and pull the anchor up or put it down. Does anyone know what I am talking about, or where I can get this device?

The "device" your talking about is known as an anchormate.

I had one, and didn't really care for it. Too slow, hard to crank up, but a good place to store the rope. Now I just use one of those cheapie pulley deals that I can still work from the back, only drawback is the rope has to lay on the floor. Nice thing about it, it's a lot faster, easier to let out extra rope, and if someone else is with me, they can run it from the front of the boat also.

Does it wind the rope up evenly?

don't take up catfishing. I've seen anchors that could double as a monument.
