      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 .

Are single blade gas powered augers a good buy? I don't ice fish a whole lot but at times a hand powered auger can work up a sweat if drilling a lot of wholes!

that depends if you're buying it from walmart new for 200 or at a garage sale for 25. If you're going new and looking for something barebones, dependable and good for the money, ....take a look at a few of the eskimos(such as the mako). When say single blade augers, I just assumed you were talking about the strikemasters at walmart or something. Jiffys are single blade and worth every penny. But I've also heard a few guys say that a good hand auger won't break much of a sweat.

Thanks to Bigguns1 for the information on the single blade gas powered augers! Helped a great deal on me making a decision on what to purchase.

I bought a new Jiffy for around $275 last spring and my elbows are very glad I did. I have athritic elbows and they hurt bad the entire winter last year. This year they feel great.

A really good sharp hand auger can drill a hole as fast as a lot of augers I've watched on lakes.(but not my new jiffy) If you go fishing and hunker over a pair of holes the entire day that would probably do most people just fine, but I don't do that.
