      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 .

Otter "Ice Sheild" Auger Guard

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else tried one of these yet? I bought one a couple of weeks ago in Duluth - (noone carries them around here). I just took it out of the box last night and all it is is a cylinder with a handle on it to put over your drill. There is nothing in there to actually attach it to the auger. I used a bungie cord but that will not hold it on straight. I am sure I can figure something out but I am wondering if something was missing out of the box? Anybody know?

I am sure it will work great to protect the rest of my gear while traveling in the Otter sled and fish house I am going to buy.

thanks in advance,

Dr. Bob

Doc,
No bungee cord comes with the Ice Shield. It's made for protecting your canvas, or the interior of a Suburban type vehicle, from getting cut by the auger blade. The auger stays in good when you carry the unit by the Ice Shield handle.

Thanks,

I was just wondering. The small picture of the unit on the box shows it on an auger and there looks like there is something attaching it to the auger ( and holding it square on the auger). Also you would think they would supply you with a means of securing it to the auger to keep it from vibrating off in transport. I think the thing is a great idea but can use some improvement. I guess I'll have to customize it a little.
