      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 two of these. They are well worth the money. Somewhat difficult to get it set up in high winds though. I have never had to do anything but put weight (tacklebox or rod case etc.) on the inside corners when I have it set up. Not gonna find a better house for anywhere near the money.

I've had the Quick Flip II for a few years now. Works great for two guys. Kinda tough to stand up in, but there's enough room to stand up and stretch out a bit. Windy days without any snow to pack in the sides can make it tough. Wind took us for a ride one time, we slid about 20ft from our holes. Not good when you've got a heater going and everything set up....

I grew up fishing in a 6X6 permanent house with a hole in each corner. My dad, my grandpa, my brother and I would all fit in there. We hauled our gear out in a 1957 Ford. We heated the house with a small gas heater. It was warm, it was roomy enough and it was simple. This is the very reason I finally ended up with a Clam 4Person house. There is enough room for four, it is easily heated with a small propane heater. It's easy to set up. It folds down to practically nothing and probably costs about what it cost my Dad to build his 6X6 in 1958. Don't worry about the high winds. If it is that windy out, and it has to be very windy, like 30mph or more, then skip that day because no matter what house you have it won't be great. Finally, you can actually stand up in it.
