      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 .

Anchor Questions

Recommended Posts

1). Any ideas on keeping anchors/rope organized in a boat? This may seem like a silly question, but I usually only anchor in the spring/late fall when conditions are severe, and by the end of the day my boat, rope, and anchors are a complete disaster.

2). What brand/model is the best anchor. I have a very large water spike, and I'm not pleased. I river & lake fish, so I would be looking for an all-a-round anchor (1850 crestliner).

Any ideas and/or recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

A plastic milk crate or small rubbermaid tub are both good ways to store anchor rope. Pull the rope in and right into the crate so it doesn't get tangled all over the place on the floor.

As far as anchors are concerned, I think it is hard to beat a Richter Anchor.

Alot of guys know the little tips that help you anchor better but having a short chain between your anchor and anchor rope is probably the most important. A 3-4' length of chain holds the bottom and acts as a shock absorber when waves are bouncing your boat and pulling on your anchor. Also remember the aspect ratio of 3:1. Approximately 3' of anchor rope for every foot of depth should be let out to allow your anchor to lay over and properly grab bottom.

I use an electric cord tie up. $.99 at any where. They work will. It's the two bar style with the side hooks.

I started tieng my rope up in a daisy chain and it works good. No tangles and saves a lot of room. I guess electritions use them for their many many extension cords.
