      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 .

Carhartt Extremes Clothing

Recommended Posts

Do any of you fishmasters have the Carhartt Extreme bibs or jacket? I am looking to buy some ice fishing bibs and I want a pair that if I knee down by my tip up to land a big pike I wont' soak my knees or gloves in slush. If anyone could suggest another brand that would also be cool. Thanks-Swill

I would suggest a good high qaulity pair of duck hunting bibs. Thats what I wear, the warm, comforatble, and water proof. OR if you want look into Cabelas Guide Wear. Ask around on here. theres lot of happy customers that use that. I myself have never. I wear a pair insulated duck hunting pants and a black Carhartt coat. Does the trick for me.

The hubby and I both got the Carhartt Extreme bibs with the jackets. I would HIGHLY recommend them. Me, one that gets cold easily hated to stand out on the ice because I got cold so fast. Once I got my new Carhartt's, what a world of difference. They are very wind proof so you will stay warmer longer. They are somewhat waterproof but I think eventually if you keep them in slush long enough you might get a wet knee. My bibs are strictly for ice fishing so I am not to concerned about fish slime on them. Last winter I caught a huge pike through the ice and it managed to shake the hook and as soon as I saw that I knew he was headed for the hole. Sure enough, flip flop, and half way down the hole it went, so I dropped to the ice and pinned it so it couldn't get away. It was so slimy I had to wait for the hubby to come running back over to me (he was off mingling with the other fishermen) you talk about slime...ick. I just took a damp cloth and wiped it down when I got home. If it gets too bad you can wash them but be prepared to lose some color. So.... to make my very long story short, yes, I would get them. I love mine and wouldn't be with out them.

Highly reccomend the Carthart Extreme for
ice fishing. Only the extrem's, the other's
soak up water and wind blows through. One
thing that I experience is around the collar
on cold windly days there's not much protection. So on those day's I use neck
gaitor (neck sock). Carthart very durable,
long lasting wash after wash. Can't go wrong,
just beware of sun flower heaters.
Good luck happy fishing

I use GuideWare and can kneel on water all day and stay totally dry. Worth every penny, spend the extra for the Gortex. Once your wet, you may as well go home.

If your main concern is staying dry while kneeling, I'd get the guide wear or something similar. If it ain't waterproof, it ain't. Gore tex is and the Carhartt's not. A good half measure is a pair of waterproof gaiters. I've got them from Cabela's. They go up to my knees (yeah, I have short legs), and keep off the water when I'm drilling holes and squatting by the hole to pull up a tip-up.

    • Got skunked. Gave up after the second day and went grouse hunting instead. Had better luck doing that
    • Real nice night Monday night.  International Space Station was doing a fly-by.  When it topped the horizon, it was over southeast Alberta and when it crawled into the earth's shadow it was over the east edge of Wisconsin in just a little over 4 minutes.  Not all of these have the same white balance setting.  I messed with it to see what I liked better.  The tree was light painted with a small LED flashlight.  Opinions and critiques are welcome.
    • I have a 3.2 L Cooks Essentials digital that I bought first. Not big enough. So I bought a 5.2L manual Bella. You definetly want to get a bigger one. As for manual or not.....less to go wrong with a manual. My Bella holds more food than the smaller one and works great. I use the Cook's Essentials only when I have 2 things to make. Plus the manual costs less. The Bella sells for about  $75. Digitals will sell for over $100. Four other members of my family now also have  them.
    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews
