      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 .

Great gear system for all year really.

I use mine for many things, canoe trips, hike in fishing, pack rods, lots of stuff.

Well worth the investment!

And I used to swear by the round Frabill 10-inch tip-ups, but with "the bag" I can fit four or five rods in the center compartment, three tackle boxes in one side compartment and three HT Polar tip-ups in the other side compartment. Good-bye Frabills, hellow Polar, and the whole thing is self contained.

Great deal. Really great deal at early ice, when you're on foot and can strap the Crox on your back and only have to carry a hand auger and a bucket with some bait to boot. Love those hands free.

Lots of room but I still cant get the ice scoop in one the way I would like. Im woried it will snap a rod. Also the zippers should be 2 ways. They always seem to be on the end your not.
Overall its a good bag and like stfcatfish said great at 1st. ice.
I would like to see a hard side model made just a bit bigger.

Very nice for those of us who fish outside and like to hike in to a spot. Carries all of my goodies and more. I wouldn't go without it now.

I made a Small 8" folding scoop, fits in the Croxton tote bag easy. I also have a Gremlin minnow scoop with my Vex, half the time that is all I ever need to keep the hole slush free.

I have not dragged around a full size scoop since my last Jiffy Scoop went down a hole on DL, 3 years back.

I've got the big bag, and will never go back to a bucket for my rods and tackle. I can fit all my tackle on one side compartment, and 12 cans on the other, with several rods, a dipper, rattle reels, etc in the main compartment. My wife bought the bag from this site for me grin.gif
One improvement suggestion - I wish there were two zippers on each side compartment so I could open it on the top, and not have to open it all the way.

GET ONE THEY ARE THE BEST I HAVE HAD 8 RODS IN THE MAIN COMPARTMENT AND I AM TALKING 30" WALLEYE RODS WITH BIGGER REELS. I ALSO HAVE MY JIFFY DIPPER IN THERE AS WELL AS ROD HOLDERS AND THE OLD CRIBBAGE BOARD. IN THE ONE SIDE POCKET I HAVE 5 TACKLE BOXES AND THE OTHER SIDE I HAVE ALL THE SURGICAL TOOLS THE PLIERS, SCISSORS, MOUTH SPREADER, DIGITAL SCALE, PROPANE TORCH FOR THE STOVE, CAMERA, AND INFLATIBLE SEAT CUSION. I NEVER THOUGHT THAT IT WOULD BE POSSIBLE TO PUT THAT MUCH STUFF IN IT BUT I HAVE IT ALL IN THERE RIGHT KNOW. I AGREE THE ONE THING THAT THEY NEED TO FIX IS TO PUT TWO WAY ZIPPERS ON THE SIDE POCKETS BUT IT ISN'T TO BAD WITH OUT THEM. THE BACKPACK STRAP ARE AWESOME. REALLY COOL PRODUCT IT IS THE BEST THING I BOUGHT THIS LAST YEAR.

Hey Stfcatfish you don't like those Fragil tip-ups either eh. I heard of 20# pike railroading them and still not setting er off. They just get hung.

Just got mine in the mail last night. Two days from the time I ordered it till the time it arrived on my doorstep. Pretty good service! This looks like it will be a good deal. I was getting so tired of the mess and tangle from the 5 gal buckets. I had already broken one rod as well so from a protection standpoint they look like a good deal.

    • Way cool. Do you have some kind of protective cover to put over the panels when you going down the road?  Lot's of ice chunks and other road debris flying around in the winter. Even the road salt build up over time may not be good on them.
    • Bet there weren't any leftovers.....
    • jmercil......... In your last pic, are those PC fans up near the  ceiling?  If so, tell me a little more about your setup.  Fans only at the top, or top and bottom?  Some type of pvc flange where they wall mount?  PVC pipe in the walls? etc, etc.  
    • Most wheelers start hitting the ice at 6" do you plan to pull it out with a wheeler or yourself?
    • It is really beautiful! Awesome pics.
    • slice, grill, garlic,salt pepper, eat. 
    • Who's "They"???
    • Now you are catching on! BTW, if you haven't heard, they finally figured out that eating cholesterol in food doesn't raise blood cholesterol.
