      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 .

sharpening Ice Saw??

Recommended Posts

Hey Fish's Ice Saw owners how do you know its time to sharpen your saw? I moved my house today since my current lake went down hill and had to cut a new hole. The saw really seemed hard to push through or down and I'm just wondering if it pays to touch up the tips has anybody done this on there own or should I spend the money and send it in?

Cutting a 4x2' hole 20" thick sure was a real treat even when I cut most of the hole with the auger....talk about cardio, whew!!!

I would send it in. Get it done right and it should be good for several more years.

Quite often they aren't "dull" the teeth are just bent out of position. The guys that build them can get them true again.

We didn't use my saw today because mine is getting dull,and when the ice gets thicker like it is it's a work out. I typically drill more holes with the auger before cutting too.

Fish ( Wayne ) is out of Winger, about 50 miles north of Detroit Lakes on Hwy 59. Here's his phone number: (218) 945-3699

Hope he's not TOO busy, his Icesaw got a mention ( with picture ) in the latest issue of Field and Stream.

Used the saw again this weekend up on Leech to sight fish for perch and I just think its the thick ice making it so hard to cut we had about 24"...ugh! I might cut one more hole this year with it and send it up to Wayne in the off season.

Thanks for all the responses.
