      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 .

Opinions: Eskimo Quickflip vs. Glacier

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at buying a new flip-style portable in the next week or so, and have it pretty much narrowed down to either the Quickflip II or the 2-man Glacier. The Glacier has the price (and weight) advantage, but the drawback is I haven't seen any of them in stores. I kinda like to kick the tires before I buy something. I like the Quickflip, seems to be very roomy, nice little features, high quality, and the price is excellent. I guess my question would be: Which would you buy, and why??

Personally I would get the Eskimo Quick Flip. High quality unit, priced right and tough as nails. I should mention, it is very roomy.

If I was pulling by hand a lot or loading into a vehicle by myself consistently, then a Glacier would be the way to go. Another well built unit and it has it's ploace.

The Glacier is especially nice where the ice fishing season is shorter than Northern Minnesota.

I ended up getting an Eskimo Quickflip III Express for $249 on 12/19/03. Haven't used it yet as it was too nice this weekend to fish indoors, but I think I'll be happy with it.

Yes Northlander,
of course YOU would. You're 6" 10" and I'd say the Eskimo is one of the FEW houses you would fit into. smile.gif

Rick,

Yeah, I'd actually "looked" at them before looking at the Eskimo (looked at them online). If I could have found them for sale in a store I might have ended up going with the Glacier instead. I never saw one in stores though. I like to kick the tires before I buy something.

In case you haven't got your new shelter yet,I have the Glacier 2, and yes it is very lite and easy to transport and a breeze to set up, it is a little shorter than expected makes you have to kinda duck to get in and out, but the best thing about it is the fabric, it is good and thick and seems very sturdy. I did have to add an additional ridge pole for extra stability in windy weather plus it keeps my gloves and hat off the ground. I did put those black mats that are for aching backs and come in 2' x 2' squares, 2 of them fit perfectly, this keeps my chair stable if not my chair slips and slides on the flooring.

I still need to find a way to tie it down though since the wind has a tendency to blow it around if i am not loading it down

Hope this help

    • Ya saw that yesterday, glad to have him back, should shore up that 4th line or put him up on the 3rd if Ek isn't ready. Everything I saw last year from Ek has me thinking he is ready but time will tell. Need to sign Foligno yet, probably won't like the numbers I see but maybe he can surprise us. Forward group should still look really good this year, obviously the D took a hit when we traded Scandella and let Folin walk but we could still be ok, sometimes team D can make up for it. Oloffson looked good last year too, not sure about Quincy but hopefully they can form some kind of decent bottom pair. 
    • Cullen comes back on a very cap friendly deal.  1yr 1mil.
    • Manky, I have used dog food with grease as a filler and it works great! No issue but you  don't want to add to much grease and make all the dog food to soggy. 
    • A guy can never have to many decoys!
    • Boar, in past years you have posted that you use dog food at some bait sites, with grease on it, how does it work? Thanks minky
    • Anyone having any action at their bear baits? I have one bear coming in.
    • It seems like summer just got here and already there are signs of it ending. In the north a few maple trees are just starting to show some fall colors. A pair of bucks were seen this week, one still in velvet antlers and the other had already shed. The late summer yellows of tansy, black-eyed Susans and goldenrod speak of shorter days to come.Continued rain showers in the last week, especially across the north, are keeping river systems at higher than normal levels for mid-August. Brown trout fishing continues to pick up on the Bois Brule River. The catfish bite is on on the Wisconsin River in central Wisconsin with anglers landing good number of channel catfish. Some walleye, smallmouth bass, catfish and drum are being caught in the Peshtigo and Menominee rivers. Anglers have had good success on both the Fox and Wolf rivers catching northern pike, walleye, catfish and panfish.On Green Bay, anglers fishing for walleye on the west shore from the mouth of the Pensaukee River to Oconto are finally getting on to fish, while along the east shore success was more mixed with about half the boats reporting harvesting a few walleye while others did not catch any. Anglers targeting smallmouth bass along Door County had success in water ranging from 4 to 20 feet. In Sturgeon Bay perch fishing has been pretty good with some anglers catching their 15 fish bag limit including some larger 12-inch perch. .
    • I prefer and shoot 1 3/4 oz of 6's which will whack anything out to 50-60 yards
