      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 .

Ice Shack Sleds-Otter or ?

Recommended Posts

Give Shoremaster fabrics a look see also.

I have more than 100 miles on the tub behind my wheeler this year and it is holding up great. I have the Voyager model, the Jigger has the same tub.

I still have my old Otter, but I much prefered the shape of the Shoremaster tub.

I would suggest taking a look at the polar-sport brand of ice houses. I have had mine for a couple of years and the sled is very heavy-duty. My buddy has an Otter and the sleds appear to be about the same..the shape is a little different....but thats about it.

I have an Otter Magnum Lodge with the rigid tow hitch and the hyfax runners. I pop out of the garage on my Honda Foreman ATV, down to the lake and I'm off. I did a lot of research, and fishing before I made the purchases and I am very happy with my set up. Very comfy and functional to fish out of with two guys and all of our gear, and like a living room when I'm by myself. Get an Otter and you won't be sorry and I would definetly get the hyfax runners to protect your investment for years to come. You won't be sorry.

I'll agree with Bushwacker. You won't ever regret buying an Otter. They may cost a little more initially, but you won't have to worry about its reliability. The comfort and features these houses provide are second to none.

I have the original Magnum Otter sled with a hitch (5-6 years old?) It must have hundreds of miles of pulling gear to and from my fishhouse or just out fishing. I used to even strap my 5x6, 6x8 portables on top of it in the old days. Loved it on LOW with that set up.

The bottom of the sled is amazingly like the day I bought it. I couldn't fit the new Otter fishhouse kit on this old sled, so I bought a whole new sled and house. Now the old sled is the wood hauler all winter. smile.gif

There is now better sled out there IMO.

I have the Otter Magnum with the Hyfax runners and that sled is amazing. You can pull it anywhere. It will last you for years and when it does wear down a bit, change the Hyfax runners and you're good for a few more years.

I just bought an ATV and plan on pulling an ice shack behind it. I have noticed from other postings that the Otter sled is very durable. What other brands have very durable sleds that would work good pulling behind an ATV?

Any house will pull good behind a ATV, but out of the brands I've fished out of (Otter, Fabill, Clam), the Otter is the #1 house on the market. I've heard some good things about Polar though, but havent fished out of one yet.
