      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 .

$5 Spear House

Recommended Posts

So i was looking on good old hsolist and found a canvas fish house for sale only $45 a little old but would make a great spear house, all i gotta do is make a bigger hold in the floor. It has a steel frame on the bottom so its heavy enough to hold it down and its folds up pretty nicely to. I met the person yesterday and see theres a heater with it and she said it comes with the house. Well i dont need the heater but wasnt about to turn down the heater. Put it on hsolist last night and sold it for $40 today. So i just bought myself a nice spearhouse for $5, so im really ready to start sparing now, all i need is a decoy.

FYI,

There is a bait shop in St Cloud that is very spearing friendly. It has a large selection of decoys to choose from. I picked up a bear creek there last year. They had some hand carved ones there too. Icesaws and spears too.

From what I understand the posting guidelines do not let me name the exact name of the place. That is about all I can say.

I'm originally from St. Cloud so I know what bait shop he is talking about, I can't seem to remember the name but I will just tell you that if you are at the stop lights on hwy 10, there is a restaurant on the SW corner and behind that restaurnat you will see the bait shop, in fact I think it has an old stop light signal on top of the main entrance door. But if you are sitting at the stop light and look west you should see the bait shop.

You can name the bait shop. Just can't post a link to it.

Cool.

I usually get in trouble after posting... this time I thought I would try to stay out of trouble first.

Yes, it is Stop Light Bait.

They have Duey Decoys there too.
