      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 .

The business end looks like a pipe /w

cylinder of ice. (promoted by "Ernie the
angler').

Tom;

I saw a short blurb on a commercial,
looked like the cyl. of ice stayed in
the hole, possibly would be pushed under
the ice /w a spud bar etc.

Was hopeing one of you fm'rs had experience
using one, redrilling holes in a perminent
house.

I saw something like you described on Big Stone Lake over forty years ago. The guy who had it claimed it was the the auger of the future. Apparently, they didn't have all the bugs worked out because that was the only one I saw. As for the ice cylinder that was cut, he pushed it down and when it bobbed back up, he grabbed it and pulled it out of the hole. Can you imagine if everyone used those augers and left ice cylinders laying on the ice to run into? As I remember, it would cut through two feet of ice. The guy didn't have an answer to what you do when the ice got thicker than that.

Ah, a hole saw, for ice...yaaa...?

Ya...lots of bugs there I think? Only good to use in thinner ice and/or to ream an old hole. But then you need to swap bits all the time, naaa...not for me. More work then it's worth I think?

If you go with the Jiffy Stealth you can chew through old holes with ease and any amount of new hard or old rough soft ice. I would go that rout myself.

Maybe if a guy had one on a T-handle and used it only to ream old shack holes? Still sounds like way too much work to me. I would fire up the Jiffy and get it done now, then get to the fish'n.

Thanks for the input fellow's.

I'm just looking for a better "mouse trap" to deal with the fumes, noise and what I'd call sno-cone syndrom, resulting, while re-cutting holes in the shanty.

P.S. I did mock-up and test an exhaust
transfer system, last winter, that show's some merrit.

    • Hooked up with the Finicky Fooler owner and creator Tom to do some ice fishing for walleye on Petenwell Lake in central Wisconsin. We managed to catch a few jigging and and also a few on the Finicky Fooler tip ups including a nice slot walleye! Ice fishing walleye can be tough at times but I am glad we ended up getting into a few fish. We moved 3 times before we finally found some active fish away from some crowds.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8dRlwxKVTI&t=1s
    • Well so much for the big storm around here. 
    • That's what it's all about right there. Father and son making memories.
    • When you sum up a season with those pictures, it’s hard for the Frozen Chosen to agree you had a terrible one.    VERY nice.   I can understand though, not getting to enjoy what’s there is almost worse than not having it at all!
    •   Don’t have find my phone turned on or whatever your particular phone’s location service is and your photos shouldn’t be geo tagged.   Sometimes when I get geo tagged text pics from others, I let them know.    I agree with Eyeguy, we’ve slanted just about every fish catching possibility our way and the internet forums are just another one of those tools.  But like a flasher for ice fishing, we’d hate to be without em anymore.  Everybody wants to know what’s going on.   But yeah, being careful with sensitive resources probably has led to less chat about specific lakes unless they’re the ones already being advertised on billboards.
    • A good way to wreck a lake is to put out "there is a hot bite" out on the internet.
    • Ufatz, Rockport is rebuilding, but they have a looooong ways to go. That’s actually what took up a good portion of my season this year. Lotsa people still need help, and it just didn’t seem right to be out chasing ducks when I could be helping people rebuild their lives. They’ll still be there next year Yes there’s still clouds of redheads. They’re too easy to kill. Problem was, those puddles love to hang out in the shallow marshes, and with the lowest tide I’ve ever seen, they were dry all week. Makes hunting real tough cuz they spread out in the big bays and it’s real hard to narrow down any concentration of birds
    • Do big bunches of redheads still hang out in the basin right in Rockport?:)   And how is poor Rockport looking these days? It really took a beating from the big storm. Didn't ever get around to hunting the area but spent two or three winters there a few years back. Lots of good fishing and pleasant weather most of the time. BUT it can get chilly!! Glad you had fun; it's always nice to see flocks of ducks even if you don't actually get a shot at them.
    • info speed, electronics, titanium spring bobbers, custom rods, inline reels, faster augers, plastic baits, sharper hooks.  fish dont stand a chance.   Speed of info probably the biggest factor. Pics on sites are great but cant share specific location or even the lake unless its a beast of a lake. I just heard last week that sometimes cell phone pics can be investigated to find gps location if a guy is knowledgeable in how to do it. Blurr out the background might not work before long. I think these type sites can still be good for tips but gotta be careful with location info. 
    • I had same challange. Went with a 12v temperature relay switch. Heater/Fans in my DIY wheelhouse now functions just like my home or RV forced air furnance. It comes with a small heat sensing probe i mounted on my upper air duct than set the on/off temperature so fans runs/stops when heat kicks on/off. Provides perfect comfort for $15.00. https://www.walmart.com/ip/bayite-DC-12V-Fahrenheit-Digital-Temperature-Controller-10A-1-Relay-with-Sensor/585224840?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=12524&adid=22222222227093022211&wmlspartner=wmtlabs&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=t&wl3=213210114658&wl4=pla-345493512458&wl5=9019533&wl6=&wl7=9019476&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=117430032&wl11=online&wl12=585224840&wl13=&veh=sem   Sensor under foil tape   Took photo when furnace was off. Temp range -40 to 230 f. Spare probe to right of controller, copper tube is thermostat, black button is pilot iginter.   Total set up with 4 speed auto fan switch.
