      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 .

Anyone?.....

I was wondering if anybody here on the forums knows of anyone who is looking to sell a bunk style boat trailer with no rollers. The current trailer I have is horrible at getting the boat in and out of the water. I have a 16 foot Lund Rebel Boat. Also, I would like to buy a boat cover for it as well. Of course I'm trying to spend as little as possible. :-) Just thought I'd see if anyone had any ideas in the Park Rapids area about these things. Thanks in advance.

I have a 16' Crestliner with a roller trailer. I've learned a few tricks over the years. One is not to back the trailer in as deep when loading the boat on. Just the bottom roller on the last set of rollers should be in the water. I dont drive my boat on either unless there is someone there to hook the strap. I snap an anchor rope onto the front of the boat and push the boat out behind the trailer then go around to the front of the trailer and pull the boat up far enough to snap the winch strap on and crank it up the rest of the way. I can usually do this very quickly by myself. Also make sure the trailer is level.

I've also used boats with bunk trailers and they are nice if you only fish lakes with good landings. I like to fish those little gems back in the woods that usually dont have very deep landings and you would never get your boat off the trailer if it was a bunk. Not to mention trying to crank it on. Bunks and rollers have there pros and cons. My next boat will be a 17' and I want another roller trailer.

Hey Lippy,

my apologies for not communicating with you about everything. I have been keeping very busy on the resort getting everything ready for the summer and getting moved in and settled at the same time. I still have the e-mail you sent me so I will give you a call soon so we can meet up sometime for a cold one. Thanks, talk to you then.

Cylinder and NELS-BELLS,

Thanks for the input. I actually have recently made some modifications to my trailer. I took off two of my centered rollers towards the front of the trailer which has made it easier to load and unload. I was finding that aligning three different centered rollers was a difficult task. I also raised the carpeted 2'x 4' planks to give me some more lift. It has helped the matter a lot. Not even sure if I will look to buy a new trailer anymore. Much appreciated for the info guys.
