      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 .

Tips for building an ice house?

Recommended Posts

Will be building a new house this spring/summer. Starting to plan now. Will be using a 22' travel trailer frame and floor. Tree fell on the trailer, but all the guts are good. Would welcome any suggestions from folks who have built large houses before. Things that are planned:
* sandwich style floor - should i take the existing flooring off and use treated for both layers?
* steel tube skids - for use on Mille Lacs.
* loft of some sort.
Any suggestions/tips will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

hi, a house that big i would think about a frame with crank-up wheels. it is alot easier to move around on wheels. i have a 7.5x17 with hdy lift, can be up in the air in 15 seconds hooked to the truck in a couple of min.

IF WE WENT WITH CRANK UP WHEELS, THEY WOULD HAVE TO CRANK UP INTO THE FLOOR AS IT IS 8' WIDE ALREADY. DOES EVERYONE JUST MAKE THEIR OWN CRANKUPS OR DO THEY BUY THEM SOMEWHERE. OTHER QUESTION IS WILL ONE WHEEL ON EACH SIDE CARRY THE WEIGHT OF THE HOUSE?

A house that size a single axle will not be enough. Yes there are many different frame manufactures out there but i have not seen to many that build them that big. I would definatly go with a hydralic lift for sure and the wheels in the inside to be legal.

kinda what i thought. Think i will stick with the original plan of welding skids onto the existing frame. It is not like we will be moving around alot once it is on the ice. Will go with portables if we want to do that.
I guess I am just wondering if anyone has any suggestions that we may overlook. Would like to put in a loft on one end.
