      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 have had this for a year now, and it has never been used. It has only been set up once, and that was inside my garage right after I got it. It is in absolutely perfect condition and is in need of a good owner.

I paid $550 for it, but am willing to sell it for $400.

I don't have any pictures, but like I said, it's in perfect condition since it's never seen the ice.

If you want it, you will have to pick it up. I live in Rosemount, MN.

Give me a call or email me if you are interested. My name is Joe.

I'm losing my shorts on this deal, but to have this house sit in my garage another year would be even worse. No tears, holes, fishy smell, faded material or anything. I sincerely doubt that you will ever find a brand new 6800 in any store at any time for this price.

Is the house still available? If it is are the holes big enough to fit a 10 inch auger in without having to move it or not?

Yes, the house is still available. I just went out to the garage and measured the size of the holes. They are all about 10 5/8 inches in diameter.

If you have any more questions, let me know.

Great price on a brand new 6800. Great for fishing 3+ people - very roomy. FYI ... when drilling holes it is best to drill a starter hole when the shack is in place (only 1-2 inches down), then move the shack drill the rest of the hole and clear the shavings before putting the shack back in place.

Good luck selling it CM, too bad you didn't get to use it much.

Someone is coming to pick it up tonight (or possibly tomorrow night, if he isn't able to slip out of work a little earlier than usual). So even though the transaction has not technically been completed yet, no, it is not still available.

Thanks for the inquiry, though.

Once the sale is actually finalized, I will change the title of my original post to show that it has been sold.

    • I love my custom Adam Bricker rods.  The guy just makes rods that look, feel, and preform well. Plus he has some really great options like a rod butt that pops out the back with a fish hook remover. You can also get the option of being able to change out blanks if you want. Which comes in handy if a guy goes from panfishing to walleyes. Plus he stands behind his work. The guy is an artist when it comes to building rods not only with looks, but preformance & function. Nothing else comes close to what he builds. With that being said, I do consider them a luxury item.   I have a slight addiction and have about 50 open water rods and 40 ice fishing rods, that range from cheap to expensive.  rl_sd pretty much said it all though. For $30 or less a guy can get a solid ice rod combo that preforms just fine. One of my favorite ice rods is a south bend Rod and reel combo I picked up for $25. It has an 8 ball Bering reel and a ML Rod that works well for perch and walleye. 
    • Minnesota, Merica, and the World commie boy!
    • Yep.  Before we were married, camped at fall lake MEA weekend.  In a tent.  Snow falling in the cornflakes.   I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now.  Or something like that.  Mama ain't happy ain't nobody happy.
