      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 .

best month to sell

Recommended Posts

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.

Weekend after Thanksgiving, I sold two within a couple days of posting at that time last year

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!

    • I think we are both kinda right, I'm pretty positive that he saddled up and rode out of Sillytown at that time to never return. But he did come back to the cooking forum, a quick search confirms that. And when in somebodies house, ya gotta play by their rules. You have to adjust, just like in life. I have had the banhammer brought down on me a couple times and  have been a moderator. That takes some talent. lol I've said it before, Sillytown is the only place in my life that I deal with politics. I find it entertaining in the context here. There is not a single political post by me on my Facebook feed. You should lighten up a tad Del, then maybe I and others wouldn't pick on you as much. Enjoy the good eats coming up next week Del.

    • 3k plus or minus a couple hundred depending on engine size I think
    • They are kinda neat.  Id like to see someone try and pull a smaller wheelhouse with one.  Anyone know prices?
    • You heard wrong and he left on his own, multiple times....
    • I have been adding a little equipment to my butchering hobby every year and this year I am going to add a bandsaw to the mix.  On the WWW there are a bunch of them in the 280-450 range that all look like rebranded clones of each other.    Then, from there it looks like the next jump is the Rikon/grizzly model that has bearing guides, a better blade and it looks like a better fit and finish for 650- 800 depending on the retailer. Does anyone have any experience with either of these types or anything similar?  I'm not going to spend the dollars to get a commercial model.     
    • Ya its been a long day. I don't know if I'm a puss or what but I havent even been able to eat today. Never lost a deer before. Hopefully never again. Worst part is I don't know what went wrong I would make exact same shot again.
    • Awesome thank you  
    • Sorry Charlie.  Way I heard it, the lords didn't like him having a plug for his sight in his .sig so he moved on, like many of the cooking folks did to another place.   I am there too, so come on over....  Just leave the politics here.  
    • Gee Dave, you are sure a  believer in the overprotective government.   I bet you cook all your eggs hard, and your chicken to 165.  You need to read up on pasteurization... It's a time and temperature thing.
