      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 .

Bottom of ice hole edge

Recommended Posts

Is there something a person can add to the auger bit to soften the edge of the bottom of the hole so the fishing line wont get cut when a big fish is on. Lost a few fish because of this.

If you have a chisel you could round it off with that a bit. Or try drilling conecting holes so you have a larger opening.

Jiffy used to have an attachment to widen the bottom of a hole. I think most of them ended up in the trash because they didn't work very well or broke easily. Maybe someone an here knows why they flopped.

Somebody is selling them on that famous online auction site. No way will you get me to attach something to my Jiffy. What if that thing breaks and doesn't allow you to pull the bit out of the hole? And say you're inside your perm. And say your perm is snowed in for the weekend. How do you suppose a guy would get his auger back. I'd like to see you chisel that thing out in mid-February when the ice is 3ft thick!!

I'll figure some thing out. Have welder will create. If anything I'll weld a pruning saw on an end of a pole. Or maybe create some thing like those vegtable strainers thay fold up to fit in a pot wath a pole in the middle so it spins.

With something like that I will be able to defend the whole when the bite is on. laugh
