      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 .

Tip-up Carrying Case

Recommended Posts

I second the Stone Legacy un-bucket. I've seen them personally and upclose, and I must say, they are very nice. Built to last and very portable and made for ice fishermen. Keeps your equipment safe and organized.

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

I use schedule 30 sewer pie cut to length with duct tape on one end. Can't remember if 3 or 4" though. Snug fit, tip up won't slide out, these can be taped together or thrown loosely into buckets or whatever you have.

Well, shoot, my Croxton Pond bag holds two Polars in one of the side compartments without tangling them, and I have a compact Frabill in the center rod compartment.

Never need more than three tip-ups in Minnesota or Wisconsin, so that's all I need, and I can put in four rods and three small tackle boxes, not to mention assorted small loose stuff like Princeton Tech light, etc., in the spare spaces.

I tie a clip swivel on the end of my braided tip-up line, and make up leaders with the hooks attached. I roll the leaders up and store them in a plastic electrical tape container.[3M tape containers are great] The round container keeps the leaders from kinking. When I'm done fishing, I remove the leaders, roll them up and secure the tip-up line on the spool with a rubber band.I've carried as many as six tip-ups and six rods in the same bucket and not had a problem. I live in a house of many cats, so I don't bring any lines with hooks into the house. Learned that lesson long ago.

the stonelegacy set up looks terrific.I built a similar set up a few years ago using a medium sized plastic kitchen refuse container and some straps off a discarded pack basket.No tangle of tip-ups - get some strips of velco and wind around reel at the end of the day.Still pefer the the tried and true extra tall woven packbaskets from Maine to transport 24" heritage tip-ups and a couple of bungee cords around the outside for some jigging rods.
