      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

I am moving to Florida and have to sell the love of my life. This unit was Custom built by my father and I. We have both been carpenters most of our lives. The ice house is located in Spirit Lake, Iowa on the IA/MN border and was only used one season.

The ice house sits on a newly reinforced crank down trailer. It has 4 catch covers and a large sight fishing hole. The interior is knotty pine, it sleeps four, has an inverter for running 12v and 8 plugs and a converter for running the Honda 2000 generator that comes with it. It includes a three burner propane stove, table that converts to a bed, rattle reels and the front of the V-nose is the bathroom.




I have a lot more pictures of this unit as I built it. Send me an e-mail address and I will send them to you.

$12,500 I have that much into it, the trailer and the generator. The house pulls great down the road. I hate to get rid of it but there is not much ice in Florida.

Yes it is tongue and groove, the house weighs 4500 lbs and has reinforced spindels. Just put another $2000 bucks reinforcing the spindles and adding a place to place the propane tanks.

the hole is about 3 foot by 1 foot. It is right in front of the stove. I usually fish a chub off a rattle reel out of it. I loved having the house on Okoboji. It was like looking in a big fish tank.
