      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 .

Good question. I am spearing thus year for the first time in over 30 years and have both a shappell suitcase and a clam Bigfoot hub. How many are spearing out of hubs now?

I would say hubs are growing in popularity for spearing. There portable and have a lot of room inside.

My brother speared from hub at one time. Just hang them from the poles on top make sure you line the pole up with the center of your hole. This worked for use.

I have two decoy jig sticks that just slip in between the rods and 'canvas' on the roof.  A fish can pull some line off it hits hard.  A Velcro loop can be added for additional security.

 

There are more custom ways of doing it but that works for me.  I should specify, the jig sticks have spools on them.  They're old time classic types.

Since I have a wood floor for my hub I used 1/2 PVC pipe and made a hanger that goes over the hole so I can hang decoys, GoPro, spinner etc works great and its just 3 pieces of small PVC.

i use a clamp on Rattle Wheel. Put a couple of wraps of electrical tape on the very ends of the clamp. Clamp it to the hub pole. Breezy days will shake your decoy a little, makes northerns come in and stare at it like its a live decoy.
