      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 .

Equipment holder for ATV

Recommended Posts

Just got an ATV and fired up to use it for ice fishing. What do the rest of you use for holding your auger and what type of rack do you have to hold your other equipment like buckets and things like that. I have a Yukon but I don't like hauling everything in that if I can help it. Any advice on what's worked is helpful. Thanks,

I just made one out of plywood and 2x2. Just took everything and laid it out and built a box around it. Works great holds three buckets, flasher, auger and heater. Just starp it on the back of the 4 wheeler and away we go. I leave it on there trailing also, I have lids for my buckets. Doesn't look as fancy as the other ones out there, but it fits the budget. Good luck.

In the Auto dep. at WalMart You can find a set of Jaws that clamp on your racks. They sell them in other sporting stores, but much cheeper there. They have alot of ATV stuff!!!

I cut a 5 gallon bucket in half and zip tied it to my front rack. I use that as my bucket holder. I have an auger holder on the back. That is it. I can get my rods and jigs, along with my Vex into my bucket. I salt my own minows so I never have live bait. It doesn't look like much but I like to go with as little as possible so I can jump around a whole bunch. 2 inches on a little lake I fish near home. Should be at least a solid 3 if not more this weekend.!!!!!!!!

I got a couple of V holders for the front at Fleet Farm for pretty cheap and they have straps to hold the auger in place. Got my GPS holder there as well. I have a bag that has a seat on it for the back of my wheeler that holds a lot.

Built this12”X12”X36” box a couple years ago and it carries auger and anything else I can pack in it really well.

Hey Buddha

I sold my sled and replaced it with an ATV this year. I have been having a blast getting it set up for ice fishing. I drag around an Otter Cabin. As for carrying my Auger, I also went with the Mad Dog "V" mounts. It's pretty cheap - got mine at FF - and seems to hold it pretty tight.

Have fun with your ride.

Thanks for all the ideas, now I have some things to think about. I have a 2-up from Can-Am so I like the idea of putting things in front and keeping the seat in back for my fishing partners. Looking forward to ice, let's hope for COLD!!!

    • Well the big tom slipped away from me Man He was big be was coming i ti my decoys but the hens went the otherway and he turned and followed  i drew back and almost gave it a shot but it was a wierd angle on one knee and i decided to not    i will get him friday when i go out next
    • The strange part is the better teams/points we had in the standings the worse we looked in the playoffs. It is probably a good thing to get some new eyes on the team and see what happens. I think someone else will scoop up Fletcher fairly soon, like players and coaches sometimes a change of scenery is in order. 
    • red polls and purple finches here daily for a while now. not many house finches.  brown headed cowbirds are here. flickers. Saw a vireo yesturday. 
    • Here are some pictures from my hunt.
    • I have not seen a redpoll in over a week
    • The finger needed to be pointed in his direction, after a few coaches got it first.  I keep reflecting back on the team of 2002-2003, Marion led the bunch in points but the rest was either rookies,  hand me downs and two goalies that got hot. Throw in guys that weren't afraid with lots of heart and they made it work.. 
    • Same here I set the blind where they like to be. Even if that is in the middle of a 500 acre sod field. 
    • It just gives me more time to pass on the addiction to anyone I can be to come out. 
    •     Yep pop it up and hunt they work great.
    • Fletcher is gone, pretty impartial to this, will be interesting to see who they bring in and what they do to shake up the team. Overall I think he was a good gm but not great, pulled us out of the dark ages but never seemed to get us over the hump. New GM will have a much better starting point as far as players and assets go.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/2018/04/23/wild-split-with-gm-chuck-fletcher-after-playoff-exit/34168091/
