      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 .

Could not find what I wanted....

Recommended Posts

I looked at flip overs, I looked at cabins, I looked at hub type pop ups.... although they all had features I liked none of them in my opinion was what I wanted sooooooo I made what I call the Hole Hopper.

You may all start laughing now laugh

The best thing about the whole deal was I made it out of left over stuff I had in the shop, the only thing I had to buy was $5.28 worth of screws, nuts and bolts.

Nothing funny at all. Great idea and the best part is, as you say, made with left overs! make sure you get some reflective strips on it somewhere. Happy fishing!

with the bucket positioned as it is, will it grab snow as you pull it or does it just look that way? Cool design. No room for second person though. Could that have been planned?

the bucket acts as a ice hole sleeve and there is a catch cover for the hole when you take the bucket out.

Nope it is 36 x 60 it was planned as a one person hideout.

I have a larger permanent for when there is more than just me.

Great idea! Looks nice, not trying to be critical but you might want to put another hole by the door so when you set your hook you don't hit the ceiling with your rod. But very cool!!

Looks really great and so is the price. I could see me using it and the first time I would set the hook my arm would be out the roof. I don't think that there is a house tall enough for me. Sooner or later I will hit the roof grin

I can't tell you how many time I have hit the roof in my Otter Lodge.

LOL, first time I saw that bucket I thought it was an ice house!!

Just givin you greef. It's a good looking house and you can't beat the price at all. You did a great job. It would probably be a little low for me settin the hook as well. Do you think the carpet will hold up? That would be about my only concern, but other than that it's a very nice little house.

Let me answer the questions I saw in the thread hopefully caught them all.

The center roof support is a metal closet pole socket on each end and wood closet pole with angles cut on each end to fit.

You guys must set hooks like my old man did. hit both sides of the fish house and the roof or on open water darn near tip over the boat. smile Don't think it will be an issue for me I am not quite that aggressive LOL

My permanent has carpeting in it and I love it no slippery floor, wears well, insulates

The blue tarp is just that an old blue poly tarp... I put it on there more to make a pattern and will cut a heavier one in the future if this hut works out the way I hope it will.

    • That's because this is the cooking thread and not Silly Town. Plenty of whining be-oches to argue with over there all day!
    • You guys must have a nicer wife than I've got. By the end of the day I'm worn out from arguing with her and come here for a break. Seems like the opposite on here sometimes. 
    • Yes, we buy the spray cans of olive oil,canola or whatever. I personally haven't tried fish but with breaded chicken I'm not a big fan. It works great when I make wings and non battered chicken. Just my personal experience.
    • That is a thing of beauty. I am speechless and if you know me........
    • Those are cool but I enjoy the amount of water that mixes with my whiskey when I put 2 or 3 cubes of ice in it.
    • That's why my wife is getting one for Winter Solstice too!
    • Milton’s put 1/8 on your house? Was that the new owner? Mines Miltona, 4 years old and came with either 1/4 or 5/16, not 100% sure but it wasn’t 1/8. 
    • I get what Del is saying to a certain extent. I would never buy a bottle of Pappy for $2000. There's no way that any whiskey can taste 40-50 times better than a $30-$50 bottle. I actually rarely buy anything over $35/bottle but that's just me being cheap. I do like to try the $50 stuff but have rarely found anything that I like better than Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace or Maker's Mark. Actually one of my favorite Bourbon's is Jim Beam Black for only about $25 a bottle. That being said I couldn't care less what other people drink or what they pay for their whiskey, beer, wine or whatever. If you have a job and make your own money, buy and drink what you want. I don't know if that's true or not but I sometimes wonder the same thing about all the people who claim to like really hoppy beers.
