      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 .

Digger Auger Company

Recommended Posts

I just got off the phone with Donny from Digger Auger Company in Sauk Centre. I bought one of their auger holders for my 4-wheeler the first year they came out. Over time, the latch that holds the auger tight rusted up and I lost all adjustment.

I explained this to Donny and asked if I could just purchase the latch. He said, “Certainly.” The latch is made up of two pieces; he said he would just send the whole mechanism. I thought this was pretty good as I have been fighting with it for a while. I then inquired about a change I had heard about where a plastic insert was installed on the holding end to keep the auger from getting marred. Donny said, “With a little modifying, it will fit your holder; I will send that too”.

I asked how much $ for everything, and he told me, “I’ll have some shipping costs so, how about $10?” My initial reaction was something like “What?” He said, “Just tell some friends that we took care of you, that’s all I ask.”

The final thing that happened, as if he didn’t go out of his way enough, was that when I asked about sending the check, he said, “Don’t worry about it. I will send this out by tomorrow so we can get you back on the ice faster, and after you get it, when you remember, just pop a check in the mail.”

It’s pretty easy to do business with a company like this. It’s also pretty easy to sit down and tell my friends (that’s all of you) about the good experience I’ve had with a product I bought about four years ago and the people that stood behind it when they didn’t really have to.

If anyone is in the market for the best auger holder on the market, coupled with the best customer service, check out Digger Anchor.

I was looking at them last summer and was wondering if that would qualify as removing your plug?

They really do go above and beyond. Last year one of the plastic inserts that hold the auger broke on mine. I called and ordered one,it was personally delivered that same day. Talk about great customer service.

I lost the plastic U shaped piece that supports the auger on the mount. I called Digger up today and talked to Donny. He is going to send me a couple replacements parts free of charge.

Great company with quality products and excellent customer service.

I talk to him every year at the ice show. He's next to the mixed beverage stand at the bottom of the stairs and is always in a good mood - I wonder why?. He's a great guy and handled a warranty issue with my buddy very quickly.

The Bail-R-Matic is a boat plug that is designed to drain automatically when your boat is on plane or out of the water. When your boat is sitting in the water, the nylon ball is pressed against the aluminum housing creating a seal by the water pressure. There are two different models available. The TH 100 will accommodate most drain plug styles and the PT 500 is for brass screw in type plugs and most Crestliner models.

These plugs work excellent. I have been using one for the past year without any issues. They have a lifetime guarantee and suffice all MN boating laws where the boat plug must be removed.

    • I took a short ride the other day but still a little chilly out in the breeze. Streets were pretty good as they were out sweeping them before the last snow. Saw a lot of bikes out the last couple of days. Don't forget to put your new licence tag on as I almost did.
