      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 .

Looking for a BIG portable house

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions about large portable ice houses. I'm looking for one like the clam sleeper or similar size. I just wanted to know if there are any other brands that anyone has any suggestions on.

Deadeye, How big is the clam sleeper? I know Shoremaster makes a 8'x8' model. I have the 6'x8' and love it. The canvas is heavy enough to block most of the light. I spear and angle out of mine smile.gif Only complaint is that the rodents LOVE the thing. Every fall I have to patch holes that the mice have chewwed in it.

The clam sleeper is an 8x8 icehouse. Anything close (6x8 and up) is good to me. Where did you pick up the shoremaster at, and how much was it?

i have fished in those otters that fold out on both ends, very nice i might add. there is enough room for 4 people to fish, easy set up. easy to bring out to the spot. the only thing is they run for about 700 bucks.

Deadeye, the clam 6800 has a new floor design this year, 6x8and nice set up, or try to find the condaminium by g-conda. It's on the site somewhere, portable built on a trailer and folds out to 8x14 or somewhere in that size. Rick had a link to the conda here earlier so look back and see if you can find it. happy hunting. <((((><

Stop out to Upper Hay Lake this Saturday, December 21st (North of Brainerd & Pequot Lakes off 371).

We are having the I.C.E. gathering there which starts at 7 am and runs all day and the Condaminium will be on display. This can fit a bunch of ice anglers and it is portable.

Stop by anytime. You won't be able to miss us if you make it to Upper Hay Lake. Just look for the largest portable you've ever seen. That's the Condaminium.

this year i bought the polarsport 4 man house. tried it out last week on mille lacs and it was a bit windy. to my surprise it held well. it folds out to 6 x 12 and folds up to 6 x 3 and all your gear fits in the sled. the whole thing fits in the back of my explorer and it only weighs about 80 pounds. will be trying it on upper red next weekend. i bought mine at thorne brothers, but they also have one on display at bass pro shops both stores in fridley

I bought an 8x8 "suitcase" style from canvas World in Hugo,MN about 5 years ago. I love it. It may not be the lightest portable on the lake, but still easy for 2 people to handle. It has a wood floor and nice heavy canvas with windows on 3 sides. It takes about 3 minutes to set it up once you have done it a couple of times. It is so durable that we mark the hole locations in the floor with the chisel end of our slush scoop and simply tip the shack up on it's side to drill the holes. I would suggest you look at them before making a decision.

I just bought the new Clam 1060. It is 10'x6' and folds out on both sides. The actual floor space is 5'x6' and each side has open ice to fish from (2.5'x6' on each side). It is very nice if im fishing with another person, very roomy. It weighs about 90 lbs and I havent had any trouble pulling it yet. The only gripe I have with it, is that it is a little tough to put up with one person, especially if its windy. Without wind and with 2 people, it goes up in under 2 minutes.

Is there a place on this site where I can see the G-CONDA? I would like to get a large sleeper type portable. Thanks for your help.

    • My buddy does the same always revs the four wheeler up before he leaves. On his sits he would have someone else drive him in bait while he gets in the stand they rev the four wheeler and take off. Dinner bell come and get it
    • No clue yet somewhere with a cheap motel and some public land
    • Who's ready for the season? Cant wait!
    • After a while we only started hunting evening because we never had any come in the AM. We also started making a bit of noise when baiting (rattling cans) when we had two Bears working. They started coming in right after we baited so the bait, after noon and stay behind hunter seemed to work pretty well.
    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
    • Big Dave most if not all pro contracts are paying you for what you have already done with the hope that you will continue to produce. Looking at todays contract Joe's is not to out of line for a future Hall of Famer
    • Great! He is finally earning a contract close to what he is being paid. 
    • thx.  directions are on the site below. just across river from college    http://www.munsingerclemens.com/the-gardens/munsinger-gardens 2 areas, up top and down by river
