      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 .

Does anyone know who makes the Black Ice fish houses and if there are any replacement parts available?

Im not sure if it would be worth the time or effort as this was such a low cost hub. The one my cousin has practically degraded and fell apart just from storage. But a little digging finds AP Outdoors was bought out by Rapala?

Try Glens Outdoors for the replacement part or poles. The Black Ice hub should be the same as Glen's Hubs or Xtreme Hubs. I dont think any of these hubs are still be manufactured. So parts will be scarce at best. Might just be a better idea to buy a new hub. I saw Joe's selling Eskimo Quickfish i3 hubs (insulated) for $150 last week.

Well, I gave up looking for a replacement pole as they are no longer manufactured, but didn't want to throw away the shack for one broken pole.

But, I found a fix for $1.49 and some glue I had around.

Steps

1. Cut off the existing pole at the end with the ball (used dremel with a cutoff tool)

2. Drill the pole out of the ball with a 3/8" drill

3. Buy a 3/8" fiberglass fence post at your local farm supply store (I got it at Runnings)

4. Glue the new pole into the ball

5. Cut it to length and install in the hub.
