      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 .

ION ice auger??

Recommended Posts

Just a couple quick questions...

I have the first year model ION ice auger. I have probably only drilled 100 holes with it. I only use it for wheel house fishing.

1. Is it worth selling this one for a new one with reverse? The reverse has me intrigued for cleaning out holes easier.

2. If I were to sell this one, what is a good asking price for it?

Thanks!

I would say the reverse function is pretty helpful for clearing out your holes limiting the amount of dump you'll need to clean out. If you already use a slush bucket or other device, maybe you're used to it.

Used Ion's typically sell between $400-$450

For how much you have used it, suppose you can almost think about it as....would you pay a dollar a hole extra to get the slush out; or conversely, would you want to save a buck a hole to do it manually.

I just bought the new one and sold my old one. Listed it for 450.00 and got 420.00. It was mint and had less the 50 holes on it.

Spend $50 and get a slush inhaler. Gets all the slush in one scoop. Than spend the other $$$ you woulda spent on a new auger on tackle or a new rod or adult beverages! Like the other guys said, the more fancy gadgets on it, the more likely something could break!

Slush inhalers still need the slush removed from the hose in a bucket which is a very heavy back breaker, try the slush copter. Only God knows where the slush goes because it never comes up in another hole.

If you have an electric drill then it would only take 35 holes @ $1 hole to pay for a slush copter.

Judging by the rave reviews this thing gets, I'm actually tempted to buy one of these and I don't even have a wheel house smile
