      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 .

I've never flipped a kayak ever and I've been kayaking for basically my whole life. Once you do if for long enough it's something you don't have to think about. Like being on a boat will it sink? Maybe. Is it going to happen? Probably not. I've been in some pretty big waves (2-3 feet) and still very stable. Very realistic question. It's definetly a balance thing more than anything.

Alright guys... I can't take it anymore. I played around with the idea of getting a yak last summer... Think I'm going to pull the trigger here on one for this year. Dicks has a good sale going right now. Do you have tips for essentials to buy that make life a lot easier? Been looking at a trolly system for my anchor and building a PVC ourrigger system that fits into the built in rod holders... 

 

Sick of fishing from the shore, want to go chase some crappies and be able to bass fish this summer. Here's the one I'm looking to get (https://www.dickssportinggoods.com/p/future-beach-discovery-104-sit-on-top-angler-kayak-16fbeudscvrynglrkpsk/16fbeudscvrynglrkpsk?&color=Blue) it's pretty bare-bones but I'm a big DIYer and love working on stuff like that. So what do I need to know before I invest?!

 

Thanks in advance!

I run a trolley on the left side and have an extra anchor to drop over the right side. Very frustrating when I only used one.  The wind would move me all over the place. Pop over and look at it if you want. It can be made very inexpensive.

I just might have to come check out your setup once I get my hands on a yak. Thanks!

Good luck on the search. These fishing kayaks looks pretty cool. There's some excellent waters nearby that may be best explored by kayaks (or a jet boat), namely the Mississippi River in the two miles south of the dam by SCSU. I grew up wading down there, chasing those smallies. A kayak would have been so much nicer, especially with proper anchors so you could make multiple, patient casts to a spot without the current sweeping you away. I can think of about 10 spots among the Beaver Islands where one could slay 3-5lb bass from an anchored kayak.

It's a blast fighting smallies and have them jump almost eye level while in the yak. :)

Might have been the most crappies I have ever gotten in one outing.... And threw every single one back to be caught again;)
