      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 .

Recommended Posts

Im no expert but I have learned a few tricks. I would like to share one with you. When I fish out of my portable I have some nylon plastic tye wraps zipped on my floor poles. There the black ones with th hole on the end. Then I cary sheet rock screws, and screw my house down. I have set up in 35mp winds with no snow on the ice, and have never lost my house. Hope this works for you!!!

One thing I do when there is no snow on the ice like are running into now is before I leave shore I grap a hand full of beach sand. After drilling holes and cleaning them out I sprinkle the beach sand where the house is going to sit before putting the house back over the holes, it definitely keeps it from sliding all over.

One thing that I have done, (only applicable if you can drive out) is throw a tube of sand, or two, (like the one's you buy @ Menards) in there. This has worked well, especially when I'm by myself and have to exit the house to stretch.

Hmmm

Today would be a good day to think about this.

My shack is made out of a green camping tarp and is or "was" sitting out on Prior as of yesterday.

Do you ever get that sinking feeling that you should have anchored the shack...???

At least on Prior all the lakeshore is residential.....hopefully I'll get a call when it ends up in somebody's backyard.

Sailing anyone??

I have seen alot of portables blowing around out on Prior. Kind of funny to watch those things tumbling across the ice.
