      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Pro Series Otter Lodge, 2 seasons old, w/ bench seat. Great shape, well taken care, stored indoors and dried after every use. One small crack in side window that I repaired with glue.

Includes: Tow hitch, travel cover, rod/misc box, support poles and hyfax on sled. Also straps to hold a 20lb propane tank and secure an auger during travel.

Great 2+ man fishhouse. Combine this with an ATV/snowmobile and go anywhere with this Otter!

MSRP was over $900 with these accessories.

Asking $450

Located near Battle Lake, MN

This shack is build to be towed behind a snowmobile/ATV, and it's well built for that reason. When it's empty I have no problems loading into the back of a pick-up myself, or pulling short distances by hand. If you want to check it out to see for yourself, let me know.

I have though about doing that exact same thing, but my lodge has been trouble freeand is in perfect condition and I already have a drop-in mod system for it.
