      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 .

Electric Socks

Recommended Posts

I seen an ad for Thunderbolt brand electric socks and I checked them out a bit on the web. They seem a bit spendy. My question is has anyone tried a pair? I am curious how good they work and how many hours before they need to be re-charged. Might be worth it if the feet stay comfy for a day on the ice.I use Lacrosse Iceman boots now but after awhile the toes get cold . Thanks.

You'd be better off to just use the right sock combo. Those LaCrosse boots are the cat's meow or so I have heard. Try to find some polypropylene socks to wear on your feet. Then, a good pair of wool socks over that. The inner sox wick the moisture away from you feet into the wool and keep your feet dry. That's the key. If you buy electric sox, your feet will sweat even more. And when the batteries go down, your feet will really suffer.....Just my 2 cents.......T

I agree 100% with Tbone. Good wicking socks and a wool or wool blend over them along with a good boot that is waterproof is key. I love my Lacrosse Ice Kings. Never have cold feet. Once a year I Snow Seal them and they are great till next year. They also get more comfortable the more you wear them. Get them a size bigger.

Had electric socks 20 years ago, didn't work to well. If your toes get cold use those heater pack deals for your feet. When its cold I slip one in each boot after I get to my deer stand. Put them on top of your toes as you slide your foot into the boot.

Thanks for the input . I think finding the right combination of socks is a key factor.
I've never heard of polypropylene socks before .I assume gander mountain or cabellas would stock them , I'll check them out.
Thanks

Electric do nothing for your feet. They must sell a bunch every year. Sounds good on paper but that battery can't produce much. The best sock combo is a poly propylene liner. There are some thin ones and some thick. For very cold weather I use a thicker one. On top of that put a Smart wool sock (or a similar type). Make sure you boot dosen't fit too tight . You need room for circulation. Your feet will love you if you do this. A sales rep gave me a pair about years ago and I haven't had cold feet since. Just make sure your boots are not tight. Deer opener where I hunted it was -4 and I wore my rubber bowhunting boots and my feet were plenty warm. Cold feet suck!!

I agree with T-Bone100%.
Instead of buying some electric socks get a couple good pairs of wool socks instead.
For the mickey mouse boots that I wear its pretty much wear wool socks or have cold sweaty feet. Since them mickey mouse boots can get really warm your feet tend to sweat and by wearing wool socks your feet stay NICE'N DRY.

Fish ON!

    • My buddy does the same always revs the four wheeler up before he leaves. On his sits he would have someone else drive him in bait while he gets in the stand they rev the four wheeler and take off. Dinner bell come and get it
    • No clue yet somewhere with a cheap motel and some public land
    • Who's ready for the season? Cant wait!
    • After a while we only started hunting evening because we never had any come in the AM. We also started making a bit of noise when baiting (rattling cans) when we had two Bears working. They started coming in right after we baited so the bait, after noon and stay behind hunter seemed to work pretty well.
    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
    • Big Dave most if not all pro contracts are paying you for what you have already done with the hope that you will continue to produce. Looking at todays contract Joe's is not to out of line for a future Hall of Famer
    • Great! He is finally earning a contract close to what he is being paid.
