      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 .

I dont have the money to buy the equipment to start right now, but i was wondering do you make any custom ice rods at all? Or would it be that hard to make them or one by myself? I want to either build or buy a noodle rod. but i want to make it very light action. grin.gif if you would prefer you can email me at smakinslabs@yahoo.com

Hey slick,

I'll respond for my dad since I'm sure it'll take him a few weeks before he gets online again. He does make ice rods, and nice ones too. If you want a really sweet one ask him about the maple handled rods he makes- they kick butt! He's made some small maple handled rods for panfish that might be right up your alley.
Dad just got back from a rod convention on Sat. Sounds like he learned a few new tricks and taught a lot of people some of his old tricks.
As for your question about getting started, I'd suggest you talk to him personally. Where do you live? He'd meet with you to show you his gear, equipment, etc. if you were ever in the Fisher area (between Grand Forks and Crookston).
As for him e-mailing you, I'd still suggest you call him (218-891-4415 or 218-634-2020). He's "old school" and isn't making the complete shift to communication via e-mail and such. If he e-mails you, he'll just say "call me"- or he'll call you. Also, he types about three words per minute so he isn't fond of wordy responses while typing (he's going to give me hell for that comment when he sees it.)
I hope this helps. Don't worry about calling him- he's a good guy to talk to and will be happy to talk you about fishing rods.

Its about 25 miles from detroit lakes and about the same from moorehead,MN. Ive been looking for a nice panfish rod, well noodle rod and i think one of thoose with the wood handle would be pretty neat. Also, I bet he probally makes some nice walleye ice fishing rods huh?

If I've ever heard of it? I live in Fargo (if you've ever heard of it!!!) Small world.
You have school in Hawley- student or teacher?

My dad's home pretty quite a bit. He's retired and makes rods/fishes and is a full-time grandpa now. Give him a call day or night and he's bound to be around eventually. If he's not there leave a message and he'll get back to you.
