      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 .

Arctic Warrior Dead Stick/Tip Up?

Question

Has anybody ever used these and do you have opinions on them pro/con vs. a conventional tip-up. I saw them @ Scheel's last night and was debating the $20, but thought I'd try to get some info. first.

Best FISHES,
Matt

If they're one of the models that jigs the bait because of wind action, they're on my "to buy" list. Just have fixed tips now, and I want a couple windies.

But I second that emotion. I don't have any real experience with them. Anyone?

Actually no. It's basically a tip-up, but instead of a spool w/ flag, it's got a bracket stand to hold a standard ice rod/reel (e.g. spinning), a flag, and a trip mechanism. Apparently when a fish takes the bait, the flag trips, you grab you rod/reel and bring in like usual rather than hand-over-hand. Looks cool ... just wondering how well it works.

bought two and used them all of last year. They worked very well for me. I did end up taping on the mounting hardware instead of using the two velcro straps.

Good concept, but the only draw back is you have to lift the whole thing up along with your rod to bring a fish thru the hole.

nope, just velcro or tape the little bracket to the rod handle. The bracket rests on the tip-up frame, when the flag goes up,,,just grab your rod. Works great for me.
