      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 am new to spearing. Iam planning on cutting a spear hole in my ice house so I can use it for both fishing/spearing. The question I have is my white interior going to interfere with spearing if is completely dark except for the light comming in from the hole? My other question is if the fish could see my silhoute against the white? Any advice would be helpful thanks!

A black interior is recommended.

Could you design and install something (snaps, long curtain rods etc) to hold up some black cloth to act as curtains while you spear and remove them when you fish?

It is a Zack shack,(@ 1000 lbs it is more portable than most portables) it is paintable(white right now) but I think it would get to dark inside when I want to use it for angling if I painted it black. So, I think I am more looking for suggestions how to convert it quick and easy from black to white/white to black. I do understand that black is prefered, but just wonderingif anyone ever tried spearing with white interior?

I'm not sure how I would fasten velcro to the spray foam. So far I like the curtain rod idea the best. I'm thinking of hanging a couple peices of conduit the length of the house for a rod and I could remove it easily. Now I need to get it done so I can get out there!!!

I bought it used and was going to resell it(bought super cheap and wanted to make a few $$), but I fell in love with it and could't let it go. It seems to be very well thought out. It is light and easy to move/setup. It also tows well, but has plenty of wind resistance. It's the only house I know of that has torsion axle suspension. I also like the sprayfoam insulation, it is very tight and easy to heat and also makes everything very solid. If I would have built it I would have made it bigger, and made the front more aerodynamic somehow.

the best thing you can do is hang black sheets inside when you are out spearing. the darker the better. You might get some glade from the lake on the white. They make a nice house, but the white will hurt you spearing!
