      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 .

Fish Trap VS Otter

Recommended Posts

I prefer the Otter. The tub is much thicker and durable than the Fish Trap tub.

I have a fish trap guide and have seen the voyagers. I really like my trap. the tarp is very strong, u can cut a hole in it and pull as hard as you want on the fabric and it won't rip. I like the shallow sled also, goes through the snow easier than the deep tub sleds. deeper sleds really don't have an advantage in my view, u can fit just as much stuff in a shallow sled, unless you plan on just not organizing anything and piling stuff up in a deeeper sled. i have used my trap for two years hauling it on and off the lake and my sled has held up great...
i've never seen a 3 man otter, seems like every portable you see here are traps and a few frabills..

Otters are nice. The sled in thoose are about the best of any. I cant say the same for the fabric though. I dont know much about the fish traps and really dont want to smile.gif Never rule out the frabill ranger tri-plex 3 man house. The fabric on thoose are the best out of any.

I just bought a new fish trap guide yesterday. I took it out fishing last night and so far I really like it. It's light and pulls through the snow really easy, easier than I thought it would. The only thing I am wondering about is, the support pole that is at the top of the zip-out door covers the upper portion of the windows. Does anybody know if it's supposed to be like this? Also that rear adjustable support pole, I don't understand why you need that because I already have enough tension in the rear. The trap seemed to be fine without it in.

I just bought a fish trap guide yesterday. I took it out last night fishing and so far I really like it. It pulls really easy, easier than I thought it would. But I was wondering, the support pole that is just above the zip-out door on mine goes over and covers up the top portion of the windows. Does anyone know if it's supposed to be like this? Also The rear adjustable support pole I don't understand what its use is because I already have enough tension back there and the shack seems to hold up just as good without it in. Thanks for your help.

      I'll also be up this weekend. Fishing Friday and Saturday and putting the boat away on Sunday. Where are people finding the eyes and what are they biting on? Jigs, rigs, slip bobers? I don't do led core or jigging raps. I'll be on Daisy Bay, so any place from Big to Frazer is in play. Thanks!

      Got two drake woodies took some advice from some great shooters and I only shot like 5 shells. Finn retrieved my ducks but got muddy so he got a bath.

      I went hunting with river rat this morning. I got two drake woodies and Chris got one. Finn was being a pain in the butt and would not fetch Chris’s duck. Finn however fetched both of my ducks. Finn flushed a bunch of woodcocks on our walk out. Finn got muddy today

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though
