      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 .

New Ice Scoop

Recommended Posts

Got to give this NEW product a thumbs up or better yet all my fingers. It is the BIG Dipper Hockey Stick Ice Scoop, with a 30" ruler on the handle. I pick up 2 or 3 metel scooper every summer Walleye fishing. No way with the Big Dipper, it floats - I tried it. I banged it on the ice to clean out the shaveing and no bent or cracked scoop.No more sore back with this long handle or wet knees. Did not take long to clean my 10" ice hole with this baby. Folks it takes a lot to get me excited over a new product and I'm excited over this one.

Ron,

I definately have to agree with you. Banged one of those on a concrete floor for three days constantly during the Ice show and didn't do any damage to it. A big thumbs up in my book.

PW,

You were a great salesman showing how those things could take a beating. I bought one, tried it out this weekend and like Ron was very impressed. Good product, good salesmanship.

Thanks Ron.

If you know Ron, he runs Judd's Resort on Winnie. He has a slew of Fish houses he runs. All need to have holes dipped out.

Ron has a refined eye for what works and what doesn't.

Thanks Mark for a great ice fishiing improvement.

I got to use my BigDipper this weekend (after I wrestled it away from my Dad). It works great. I like the wood handle which has better feel when you grap it with a wet hand then that cold steel. Plus the reach that you have - I can get the far hole in my house without having to get up or lean way over. Another bonus is that the plastic does not ice up either.

Now, I just wish I could have put the ruler to use.

Hi all, Im relly glad that all you guys are happy with the way the Big Dipper works. I made these scoopers to do what I needed a scoop to do and just used the best materials I could find when I decided to produce them for sale. Thanks, Mark Edevold

Perch Searcher -- I saw Hali jigs and Spoons in Grand Forks at the Scheels Store on South Washington (across from the hospital) It's on your way to Devils Lake.

    • I don't mind Evan Williams but it's no where near as good as Trader Joe's but then again my beer of choice is Old Mill.    I've got a set of these bullet chillers on the way. Somehow I became a booze snob and didn't want my cheap Bourbon watered down and I'd rather have it chilled.  Less than 20 on the big A.
    • Bacon is cured already silly!
    • like any addiction............there are cures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Snow has finally stuck up north. With temperatures in the teens and low 20s it looks like it is here to stay. Several properties in the north are reporting between 6 and 10 inches, while the southern half of the state has seen primarily sporadic dustings up to a couple inches. While many ski trails still need additional snow and time to prepare, the Brule River, Northern Highland-American Legion and Point Beach state forests are grooming trails and making ready for the influx of skiers.At this point only Iron County in far northern Wisconsin is reporting that snowmobile trails are open, on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR).Ice conditions have not substantially improved. While there may be 10 inches of snow in Mercer, much of the ice on Iron County lakes varies between only1 and 4 inches. Those early ice anglers that are venturing out have reported solid catches for panfish and northern pike biting on Lake Poygan and those fishing Lake Chetac in Sawyer County are landing walleye, northern pike and panfish. There are just a few weeks left to turkey hunt and now is a good time to see turkeys feeding in fields and wooded areas. Pheasant hunters should note that the state game farm will be releasing an additional 1,500 birds on five wildlife areas prior to the holidays for some late season hunting. .
