      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 .

Hey guys,

Anybody use these ice chisels yet? I was wondering if they are worth the extra money. Thanks for any information.

MnDog, welcome home to the best forum around.

As for the spud bar, a spud's a spud, dog, as long as it's heavy enough to make a clunk and sharp enough to punch through.

Got mine for $1 at a garage sale, and it's as fine as any fancy higher-priced unit.

Not everybody's as grouchy as me. grin.gif Likely you'll get more helpful responses on your spud question.

If you've got a welder and a grinder, make your own, use a hunk of 1/2" thick cold rolled steel 2 1/2" or 3" wide and weld it to a piece of pipe or cold rolled shaft for a handle. I like to Flatten out the top handle end and weld on a big washer for a rope.

If you want to get fancy, cut and sharpen a v recess into the central portion. This really makes the spud grab the ice, and makes it work really well for enlarging a spearing hole by chunking ice off the vertical hole sides. (a straight edge spud will bounce off a little more.)

Either way, or if you buy a spud keep it sharp with a good file.

Have Fun!!! Mark E.

Thanks guys.

I have a bunch of ice chisels, but was just wondering if the Jiffy was any better. I've been reading the board for awhile, just never posted.
