      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 .

I saw a short blurb on a commercial,
looked like the cyl. of ice stayed in

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.

    • I love my custom Adam Bricker rods.  The guy just makes rods that look, feel, and preform well. Plus he has some really great options like a rod butt that pops out the back with a fish hook remover. You can also get the option of being able to change out blanks if you want. Which comes in handy if a guy goes from panfishing to walleyes. Plus he stands behind his work. The guy is an artist when it comes to building rods not only with looks, but preformance & function. Nothing else comes close to what he builds. With that being said, I do consider them a luxury item.   I have a slight addiction and have about 50 open water rods and 40 ice fishing rods, that range from cheap to expensive.  rl_sd pretty much said it all though. For $30 or less a guy can get a solid ice rod combo that preforms just fine. One of my favorite ice rods is a south bend Rod and reel combo I picked up for $25. It has an 8 ball Bering reel and a ML Rod that works well for perch and walleye.
