      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 .

Sno-Boat One Man Shelter

Recommended Posts

Everything you need to know about how my fishing has been this year can be summed up as follows: my best luck of the season came last weekend when I stumbled on a Sno-Boat one-man shelter at a garage sale for $20. :lol:

 

I kind of remember the Sno-Boat from my days on the ice in Winona back in the 1990s. IIRC they got bought out years ago. I didn't really need another shelter, but this seemed too good a deal to pass up: canvas cover, light, and low profile.

 

It is now stowed in my basement for the summer, but it looked exactly like the one in the picture when I found it, except for the snow.

 

The previous owner had a strip of canvas put on the base of the tent to repair it, and it is otherwise in very good shape.

Nice little wind shelters. I think Frabill still makes something like it but a two man. The only draw back I saw with them is hitting the angled canvas over the holes when setting the hook hard on bigger fish. 

Long time to wait it's going to be 90 degrees on Saturday-in the boat!!  :lol:

Still have my old sno-boat. Best portable shelter out there for pulling by hand. You scored a heck of a deal! I feel mine is irreplaceable! I don't use it much, but when I do, I'm so glad I have taken care of it and still have it 16 years later. I've had 1 zipper replaced on the D-door and some patching done at Canvas Craft years ago.  I think the other zipper is on it's way out, and will definitely get that repaired when needed.
