      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!


Catch Cover hole sleeves

Recommended Posts

Hello,  looking at getting some hole sleeves for my catch covers.   I've heard the white colors are better than the blank for seeing in the hole.  But they also make a glow in the dark sleeve.  Do these actually work and are they worth the extra money for them ?   I've never been in a house yet that has the glow ones.

They just came out with new glow sleeves that are suppose to be a big improvement on their old glow sleeves.  That being said, they are $35 each!  If you're going to get a few you might as well get them for all your holes.  They do make a big improvement on drafts coming into the shack and preventing holes from freezing.  I went with all black with mine.  I made blackout curtains that let in 0 light for sight fishing in clearer water and believe the black sleeves help even more for seeing your jig.

The glow in the dark sleeves do work, quite well.


If sight fishing is something you are after, black is actually better.  It blocks the light.  Same concept as a spear house, or closing the windows in a portable to allow you to see down the hole better.
