      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 .

Camera flash for Charging Ice Fishing Lures

Recommended Posts

I 'm looking for some advice on a rechargeable/battery flash that I could use for glowing ice fishing lures. Don't know anything about cameras/flashes, but i do know they will charge up the lures much better than the little things you get at the sporting good stores for that. Anything reccomended, used equipment sites, etc. In-expensive if possible.

Thanks for any input, Moose

Moose, Evilbay will do you fine. Any cheap old bargain flash that still works well will be as good as an expensive, fancy one, and you can just buy some rechargeable AA batteries or whatever the flash takes and recharge them as needed.

How about the Lindy Tazer or the Atomic Glow Charger, both about $12. Might be cheaper than a flash and more handy to store.

Thanks for the replys. I have checked HSOList no luck so far, some there but very $$. I have used all the normal glow lights and they do work, but after fishing with a freind with the camera flash I decided I needed one of those! No comparison in brightness and lenght of glow time. I beleive he got his at a pawn shop for about $35.

Have you tried it with the flash from a point and shoot camera? Not nearly as strong of a light source, but if it works it might be something that you would have with you anyway or could pick up cheap enough somewhere. You could also try to rig up something from a couple of disposable cameras with built in flashes.

The pawn shop route is a good one. Also, if you go into a camera store and check prices for their smallest bargain-basement flash you might find something for an affordable price.
