      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 .

electric ice augers

Recommended Posts

Hello, I just ordered a wheel house this year. I thought I would look into an electric ice auger so I would not have the smoke, smell, and the oil in the house. Had one 30 years ago (slow). The way I am reading everything the Ice Gator head and the Nils blade seems to be the ticket. Or could I just put my lazor blabe on it when I want to use an electric one. Is the Nils that much better? Thank you for all your information. Rick

I use the lazer blade on mine and you will have zero problems. it is scarry fast with any blade, so using a different blade by any other brand will make a small difference. as long as the blades are sharp, i would say use what you have.

If you were to purchase the Ice Gator, it will come with the addaptor for a hand lazer auger. If you have an auger from a powerhead, it will fit right to the Ice Gator with no addaptor. They make an additional addaptor for the nils for an additional cost.

not sure if these ideas have been brought to the table but the "limited use" that i had with them they reopened holes - well (not like my lazermag, but still good) but the most impressive option on there is that you can put the electric gear in reverse and shove the ice in the hole under the ice. thats my .02 gotta run

I have owned my Ice Gator for a whole year now with absolutely zero problems at all. Don't have to worry about spilling gas, flooding the engine, oil leaking, smelly fumes & trying to cold start it. I just grab it put it on the ice press the button and goes through ice like butter. In 24 inches of ice I can cut close to 50 holes before I even notice if it is starting to slow down. This is a 5 star product with awesome customer service, this will be the only ice auger I will own say goodbye to gas FOREVER!!!!!
