      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!!!

Building and selling custom-made fishing rod racks, both for ice fishing and open water (regular sized) rods. You specify the kind (Ice or Regular) or rack, wood (typically oak), number of rod slots and stain (or you can leave unfinished). Typical 10 rod ice rod rack sells for $65 ... 10-rod open water sells for $150. You pay actual shipping costs or pick up in Grand Rapids, MN. takes a few days to build each and a couple days to stain/poly finish.


Let me know if you are interested ...

Just finished a pair of smaller rod racks designed for a narrow wall in a guy's fish house. He only has 9.5 inches of wall to work with, so we only got two rods per rack ... but they should still work well. They should be a good match for his cedar-paneled fish house


Let me know if your fish house needs some custom built rod racks ... I can make them to fit your space, wood type and number of rods needed.

Here is another version of the rod racks for Ice Castle Fishouses ... this one is made of cedar and holds 6 rods. It was installed on a cedar interior which makes for a nice modification.


Let me know if I can build one for your fish house!




And here is a 25 rod version (free standing) that was built for a custom rod builder ... this one made of clear pine and no finish other than the felt inserts where the rods touch.

Thanks, Walleyehooker! I appreciate the review and am glad you like it. I also appreciate you letting me make the rack for you ... I enjoyed building it.

Just finished two more rod racks ... one (second photo) is a 10-rod wall mount rack for a guy's home and the other is an 8 rod rack for a fish house. Both are pine.
