      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 .

Auger Modifications

I've always used hand augers when fishing around my area. But the last 6 mos. I've got a terrible problem with my elbow & I have a hard time even with the thinner ice.
The doc says if I don't quit using my arm it won't never heal up.
We all know I'm not gonna quit fishing,
So I been thinking about getting a small power auger.
With me being left handed on the power units I've used the exhaust blows right into my face or chest.
Has any of you guy's ever switch the cable or the linkage to the other handle?
I really don't care for the cable type throttles I think the linkage type are much more durable.
How about putting a 90 on the exhaust and a different muffler?
If them auger motors are like anything else i've bought in the last few years the exhaust probably needs to be opened up so that thing can breath anyway.
Any thoughts?
Thanks Bob

Ahh Then you are a lefty only.
A cable type would be easier to switch over then a linkage. With a cable theres a clamp that holds the throtel lever to the hand bar.
Either way I could help ya out but your in Iowa. Long way from Twig, Mn.
Im will take a look at mine in the morn and see what needs to be done exactly.

Have you considered electric? There are two for sale in the for sale thread. My partner just got rid of his gas auger because of the danger with the power of them. He cut through his leather boot all the way down to his last sock. Scared the dump out of him. Take a look...might be what you need..
