      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 just purchased my first pick up. I am looking to get a tonneau cover for it. I have been looking around at them. There is so many makes and types. Does anyone have any prefference? I know there is vinyle and fiberglass. I like the looks of the fiberglass. Yet I need one that pops on and off pretty easy. Do the vinyle ones hold up very well? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I think this is a simple answer.

ACCESS COVER !!!!!!!

The one I have on my Sierra is over 4 years old and still looks and works like new. I love mine!

Need to use the bed? Roll it up. Cover the bed back up? Unroll it, snap the rear into place, velcro the sides shut.

I'm guessing lots of guys will comment on Access & Truxedo covers.

I do agree that a soft tonneu is the best choice for versatility. Most people have a truck so they can just chuck things into the back so they don't stink up or dirty the cab. Unless everything you plan on carrying is small enough to fit under a hard cover, you should get a soft cover. There are many out there and I know the choices are endless. I want one when I get a truck again, but even I don't know which one to get and I like to think I'm a bit of a nerd when it comes to trucks and their toys.

If Hanson says the Access, then I would seriously consider that one.

Or... ya could get a shell for it. That is what i have always had on mine. That way even the taller stuff will fit in there and you can still lock it up. Just a thought. Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

I vote for the Access cover. I've had mine for two years and love it. Mine does have a latch you can slide over to lock it down but I had to buy an aftermarket tailgate latch ($50) to make it completely in accessible. I've only locked it a few times on cross country trips when the truck is sitting outside the motel and my tools are inside.

Access all the way....I would not buy anything different.

And, like mentioned above you can buy a tailgate lock to keep things more secure....or install a power lock on the tailgate to work with your main locks!!!

Another fan of the Access cover here. I've had mine for 2 and a half years on my truck and it looks and works like new. I bought mine on the internet and saved a lot compared to buying it local. Install is very easy too.

I have an Extang cover and it's been great, decided on that after a buddy had one and his was great too. They have several styles available and are all over the internet if you're looking.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
