      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 .

Frabill Hideout for Spearing

Recommended Posts

I was wondering what you expert's thought of the Frabill Hideout as a portable shelter for spearing?

I have never been spearfishing before, and so I have no idea of the possible pros and cons.

I do have a couple of ice shelters (clam scout, and canvascraft Nopac 2-man), but I thought this might serve better for spearing than my canvascraft house.

I was thinking that I could make a 4x8 suitcase, but I think the Hideout would be easier to manage (weight, pulling, etc.). The available open space is 16"x72". I guess this might be tad narrow, but at least there is one large open spot, and not small cut-outs like most suitcase style shelters.

One negative aspect is that you would be limited to spearing from only one side. Do most spearers have 360degree access around the hole?

It the end I may stick with my canvascraft, but since the inside is white, I was thinking of getting the Hideout.

Canvas Craft is goign to be a tought house to beat when it come to suit cases. But if you have the white inside, it might not be that bad becuase its all insulated. I would want to have it black in there, so you might have to go a different route.

As fas as the hole, everyone cuts there holes on one side ofthe house, becuase that sideis goign to have all water on it, so the other side of the house is all space to put all the stuff you need in the house.
