      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 .

I made a rod holder out of the kind of tubes that you would use to put into your golf bag. I cut the tubing into six lengths, screwed them into a piece of 1"x1"x24" wood and then bolted that with two screws to the sled to hold the rods vertical. The rod buts fit snug into the tubes, but I cut a "U" shaped groove about an inch deep into the top of the tube to lock the reels into place.Now I can reach behind my chair and re-tie a rig without removing the rod from the holder with the top up or down. That almost cost $1

I think a big fan and motor like on a paraglyder mounted on back would be the real deal.

Fire that mother up, and boogie across the ice to the next spot, just like an air-boat or a snowplain.

WEEEEEE...HAAAAAAAAA!!

Sure would add a whole new element of fun/danger to the ice fishing game, don't ja know!

I can see it now the 2003 "Death Trap Nationals" ice Racing team on TNN at Gull Lake.

Sound fun Backwater!! I have not had the pleasure of sailing across the lake. I think in the long run anchoring even when not needed gives me more fishing time so I dont have to run after it. At a drop of a hat we get 30mph winds here in wcmn.

Havent done nothing with my trap but string a light(hate the lantern)

Hey Backwater hows the river after this warm weather.

The river ice has definate spooky areas. Most is 6-11", not all.

I drilled holes where sleds went that was less then 2" and less then 4' away it was 9". To me that is kinda spooky Eh.

Stay clear of bridges and necked down areas, and Dams.......DA. I seen sled track right up to dams on the ice, #@$%^ NUTS or what?

Shallow runs have thin ice from flow and the warm weather, know where your going is very wise.

Fishing has been fair to good if you work at it. wink.gif
