      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'd say anytime between late September to early December. Late September, I know I start getting the icefishing itch and want to look at stuff to buy.

I agree with Hoggs, but I would say late Sept-Feb. Just because ppl are still on the ice in Feb and still have a couple months left.

Some people might want to use it for a base camp for hunting before getting it on the ice. So I would say any time from Sept. to Nov.

I would say what is wrong with right now? The more time you have to sell something the better. In fact I am looking for one right now. What do you have?

When i put it up for sale this is one of the sites I will be using. I know the Mods would not approve if i were to post in this forum what I have for sale. Part of my issue is that I want a house for the annual camp ripley hunt in mid October. Therefor i now almost have to wait till after the hunt to list it for sale. I want to list it on several sites when the demand and interest is high.

I would start posting your house now with the stipulation that it will not be delivered until such and such date. Your potential buyer might just buy from some one else cause he wants it for opening of deer hunting and wants to prep it while it is warm out or just wants to be sure he has one.

Think about that for a minute. You are looking to buy, now is a great time to buy winter gear. But for someone wanting to sell- not so much. Be like selling a snowblower in June, if you were buying you'd save money, but if you were the seller you would make much more in december.

I sold mine last year. I had it posted from 3/08 till it sold the weekend after Thanksgiving. I didn't have anybody call or email on it until first ice started form, once that happened it was nutz and sold very quickly. It surely wouldn't hurt to post it now, but i'm thinking your a couple months away from seeing serious buyers. I posted it here, on c r a i g s l i s t and on bulletin boards at resorts up north, most were responding to the c-list ad and that's where the buyer came from. That site works! Good luck and hope that helps.

Purchased mine last September. I knew what I wanted and was looking for a deal. The prices seem to go up once the ice starts forming and people get the itch!

    • What the heck is everyone up to? I haven't checked in, in a while, figured I better throw leech a few pictures of some snowmobiling...... hasn't been much going on in our neck of the woods with the wind blowing everything into the grass or woods.   Anyone else been out west yet?   7 of us shot out to Cooke City a week ago ( Jan 10 ) and rode the BearTooth Pass / Top of the World Wyoming on Thrus, then headed for Cooke City Montana to ride Friday and Saturday. Met up with 3 more and we had one of the best deep powder rides ever!   Always a lot of work when you ride in the deep stuff but it's something you always wait for, got a good work out from getting stuck ALOT and helping out the others too. I believe the snotel site topped 102" of snow ( they actually topped 100" around new years too ) which is early for them to get that much snow but not all places out west are getting snow, our friend from Colorado said one of the ski resorts out there was only 25% open ...... good thing we didn't plan on going to Colorado riding this year!   I didn't bring a camera with so I had to rely on my buddies to supply a few pictures.   There were some meadows and bowls that were STUPID Deep with powder, dang near didn't make it out, had to be an easy 3 to 4 feet of powder back in them areas...... it was AWESOME!!!!   When you see this much snow in town, it's going to be GREAT up top!                        
    • Some of my cam pics this year. Still showing bucks with antlers in the last week or so. 
    •   Thanks for the offer but I'm not sure how much it will get used. If he shows and interest to get back out there then we'll look for a better solution.    And it was just old scrap plywood from the garage!  Geez you wood guys really get Grainy! 
    • you would swear it was homecoming week in all of our local schools here in rural central mn!  Most schools (businesses alike)here had Vikings day today.  I like everyone older than 30 has dementia and everyone younger doesn't understand our (vikes)history!   I will just sit and live on hope.
    • A season has always been a slam dunk for me.  Season B I am 2 for 3.  Seasons c-the end I am 2 for 2, young birds however. Weather is variable throughout, but i have killed birds in a heavy snow storm, rain and wind throughout the years.  Just scout and hunt, birds will tell you what to do if you listen.   Sometimes they lie though!   Pick the season that best allows you the time to be out the most.  Time in the woods and fields will equal the most success, this year and years going forward.
    • I would never subject my precious Cherry wood to that type of Carnage. But seriously- if you are going to use that thing I have a lowrance ice kit that I can send you if you want to cover s and h.  And if you have the older connector( not blue) I have an ice ducer I'll throw in for free. Just please, for the live of God promise you will never do something like that to wood ever again. 
    •   Ok, well without the casualties then!
