      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 .

Well as to putting the boat on the trailer each one is a bit different but with mine I set the trailer in so about 1/2 to 2/3 of the bunks are still out of the water, tile the motor if it is a shallow landing, line up with the trailer as a slow speed, When I feel the boat hit the bunks I'll give it some gas to slide it to the bow stop, Leave the motor run in gear until I hook up the strap and tighten it up, shut down the motor lift the motor and pull out.

As for cleaning a pike I never did figure that one out!!!!

Pretty much the same with rollers as it is with bunks, only you might not need to give it as much gas. Just a little practice till you get it right. The important thing is to remeber to hook up the stap before pulling out! smile.gif

The first time is scary but it's pretty easy to do as long as you don't have a strong cross wind. If that bothers you you can always put on a set of guide ons.

You don't remember if you have bunks or rollers??? Don't mean to be inflamatory, but really, you don't know if you have bunks or rollers?

Go easy Notorious. I believe TYMAN is a lot younger than most of us.

thanks bear (im 14) however i cant blame noterious for thinking i lack the "grey matter" reason i didnt know was cause its a bunk roller combo and the only time u see the bunks is when they're underwater loading and usually i got more important stuff to worry about lol

Yep...I like the drive-on method. smile.gif

I do as mentioned above; Pull the winch strap about 1/3 back and rest it on the first roller closest to the truck, and lock the winch.

Back the trailer in so the last rollers on the trailer are just in the water (this will ensure the boat goes on straight.)

Be careful once the front of the boat goes on the trailer is the launch is shallow, as the motor will dip down in the water further as the front of the boat rises. Electric trim and tilt makes this alot easier.

Then I give her a little gas to drive it to the strap, leave the motor in gear, hook the strap...and if I feel lazy...I goose it all the way up to the winch pillar.


As far as Y-bone-less Pike fillets...here's an awesome method (but makes 3 cuts of meat which the CO may not appreciate)

Lay the Pike on its belly. Start by cutting down behind the Pikes head towards the back bone. When you feel the knife hit the back bone, pull up a slight bit and turn 90 degrees, cutting towards the tail of the fish.

Cut along the back bone by gently guiding the knife along the back bone until you run out of meat to cut. This will be your first fillet.

With the back meat removed, you can now run your fingers along the Pikes back, and you will feel 3 sets of bones. The center is the backbone, and the two strips on the outside are the Y-bones.

Now simply take your filet knife and filet around the outside of and past the Y-bones, down to and along the rib cage, as if you were filleting out any other specie of fish.

The Y-bones stay with the guts, and you have 3 boneless slices of meat.

Keeping it in gear keeps the boat from sliding back on you and/or gives some help if you still need to crank it up further.

Depending on your steering system, it might turn while you're attaching the winch strap.

My motor has a friction lock on the plate for the tiller steering, and the Johnson I had before it also had a lock for the steering. Console types are typically tight enough that they don't move.
