      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 .

Fish Trap Scout Pictures

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know where I can find a little more detailed picture of a fishtrap scout? The only once I can ever find is the one with genz "inside" which doesnt show anything. I never really paid attention to the one man shelters and I want to start researching what one man I want but nobody has them out yet and no pictures in sight. Thanks!

It is a pretty basic one man - I believe it comes with a seat (like the one pictured as the basic jump seat in the "ice fishing gear" section).

If you travel pretty light (not a ton of gear) and only use one hole in the shack this is a pretty good option IMO. I personlly like the FT Pro cause it is big enought for two holes (one for the deadstick and other for jigging) with room to spare for my Mr Heater. Can be a little heavy to lift out of the car and can be a tight fit in the trunk depending on your car. Pulling threw the snow isn't bad unless it gets deep.

I have both the scout and the guide. I picked up the scout this year because of fishing by myself a lot and tired of hauling the guide around. It sits big enough for one hole and a little buddy heater and your flasher. the guy i bought it from uses two poles.He showed me how he set up his hole pattern and it would work. my go to walleye rod is a 32 TB. I just bought a 24 inch rod and a 28 to use in the scout. I am looking at a removable seat to use instead of the jump seat. More comfort. I bought it for about 150 in perfect shape. I stand all of 5'8" and if you are not 6'0"+ you should be fine.
