      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 .

Boat Cover for Alumacraft Lunker

Recommended Posts

I am wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a good travel cover for a tiller Alumacraft Lunker. I planned on getting a custom cover made for it, but have recently been considering finding a cheaper alternative. Are any models available at stores like Gander Mountain, Fleet Farm, or Menards worth looking into? Thanks in advance for any help.

If you want a storage cover .. *better* over the counter covers usually do a fair job...

If you want a travel cover .. dont skimp, pay the extra cash and have one made if you want it to last for any period of time.

I have a Lunker and did not to get the custom made $400 cover. I purchased a stearns cheap one from fleet farm. Only use it for storing the boat at home. I never trailer with the cover on cause it would end up like a ripped flag. Works excellent for keeping the rain and other elements out of the boat when it sits in the driveway. If you have the money and like to cover your boat when trailering it then definetly look into a custom cover. They are nice but rather then spend $400 on a cover I chose new electronics and trolling motors and stuff like that.

I have the same boat, Counsel steer. I am also looking for a cover that will travel. A friend of mine got a cover last year from Canvas Craft in Ramsey (off hwy10) and is 100% satisfied with it. He has a boat that is similar to ours and spent about $500.00 on it. The nice thing is that they custom make the cover to you boat. You have to bring it in and leave it for a couple days while they make it. I saw the cover and am pretty impressed with it. I called them and they said they are about 2 weeks behind at this point. I just think that if you are going to get a cover the best way is to do it right the first time. I have had other cheaper covers and they are absolute crap. They dont last and rip right away when trailering.

Where did you see the custom cover for $400.00? I would be interested in looking into that.

Try Erichsen Marine Canvas in Shakopee. My custom top for my Alumacraft TS 175 was just over $400. Snap it on and you are good to go.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.

      Eden prairie purgatory lake is full of carp. You can see them from the dock or the bridge.

          Orvis has some awesome tutorials on their web sites. They teach at whatever level you are in flyfishing. I've gone there many times. They've also got an awesome app with fishing reports including wwater conditions, fly selection and hw to fish it.       Check them out and good fishing.

      I didn't fish any walleye this weekend- only bass. I would fish Friday and Saturday mornings from 530-830 and caught half a dozen largies in the 3-4lb range on a spinner bait. I just got my Garmin fish finder with sideview which will hopefully help me better locate the walleyes. Del, were you marking fish as you'd go over them?

      Latest Landing gossip...... First hearing in trial was july 25th.   Judge took motions under advisement. In the mean time, since none of the locals would work there, they imported a bunch of people on H2b visas as seasonal workers and put them up in a little house in Cook.  Charging them $285 per month.  Like 20 people in the house.   Now many have quit and found other jobs, and some also found other places to live.   They have to hang on since they need to wait until their scheduled airplane tickets.. which they also had to pay for.   That's the news from the Laundromat.... Believe it or so what.
