      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 .

First ice house!

Recommended Posts

I just bought my first ice house and i got a vexilar with it. I really don't have a clue how to use the vexilar but i hope i will catch on quick. now all i need is a power auger. i don't really know which brand to get or which one is better than the other. If anybody that reads this and has an old one sitting around i'm looking for something fairly cheap and it doesn't have to run. aAny input would be great.

Check your local pawn shop for the auger. I got mine there for less than half the price of a new one and it runs great. You will catch on quick with the vex. If you see someone out on the ice with one, just ask for a quick how to. It will take about 2 minutes. Most guys are there will be happy to help you out. Good luck this winter!!

I think if you go to the Vexilar HSOforum they have a tutorial for you to follow, it will give you some of the basics of how to use your vex.

Hope you enjoy it, I would not fish with out it!

Jeff D- I bet your pumped. Thats awesome! Welcome to the addiction we call FishingMinnesota and IceLeaders. Enjoy the web page and welcome to the family!

Fishing with a flasher is really quite easy. They cant lie. If it says something is down there, there is. The best advice I can give you is find someone who has a flasher and fish with them for about 5-10 mins.. by then you should have the hang of it. Better yet, try and get to one of the IceLeaders get togethers!.. They are a ton of fun and you can pick up a ton of tips!

again,, nice to have you a part of the family!
