      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 .

Choices, choices, which is right?

Okay, so after going to the ice show I got ideas in my head and not sure which route to run.

Right now I have four houses. I have a perm on Mille Laces. I have trailer that is a flip over house that is 10' wide, 16' deep and 9' tall. I have a one man on the back of my wheeler and I also have an otter two man. Now at the ice show I saw the Clam Quick Fish (I believe that's what it's called). My buddy, BigWade, picked one up. I think this would be the best for early ice and much lighter than dragging my otter around. Any experience with these and how do you like them?

Nope, single car tuck under. It's hard man. Two sheds in the yard though. That's another reason I'm thinkin of getting rid of the otter and going to the quick flip.

Sandmannd, is this the HUB that your talking about? Eskimo makes a similar unit called the Quickfish? I'd wait till you try out the trailer trap, or get a chance to see how Wade likes his and see how they fish, then take the leap. You could get rid of it after the new year with lots of season remaining - probably be a few kids that want to spend some x-mas money.

I've been considering the same thing. I have a Otter Lodge and Clam Pro ... The size and weight this folds down to would really be handy. Regardless of what I do I will always hold onto my flipovers.

Yeah I picked up the Clam Base Camp and for the size when hauling and roominess when set up it was too good of a deal to pass up and I think it will be used more then my Otter Lodge...we'll have to get it out and try it Shane and Sean!

Sandmannd,

If you have 4 fishhouses, whats a fifth one? I don't see a wheelhouse in your list maybe you need a sixth one too! You can never have too many. OK maybe you can.

Yea, explain that to the wife Dave. I know, for what I got into it, I may just keep it and get the flip house. We'll see how much I use it though. It is a really nice and comfortable house. But then I wouldn't mind getting another and modding it out.

    • Yup so far this season would have had 2 nice ones with a shotgun I just keep telling myself archery is life lol
    • Doesn't get any better than that. Pic says it all. Congrats  
    • Well not the most attractive option but when the kids are out playing in the sprinkler you could get a roll of nonslip pool matting to roll out then put in the garage during the fall-winter? 
    •   OK, then how about stripping the sealer if that is what makes it slippery.   After a few years it really isn't necessary, since the concrete is mostly cured by then (yeah it keeps curing for decades but most of it is done in a year or two).     I guess if you like the glossy look then maybe the sand in the sealer thing is worth a try.
    • Season ended just like I thought it would and happy Leipold held true to his word and moved on from Fletcher...he did some good things but overall did a poor job building a team that can compete at a high level unfortunately.  It will be interesting to see how the new GM handles this situation...getting rid of under-performers will not be easy and what in return? Going to be one of those down before heading back up deals. Coyle will be the first to go IMO, Granny can go as far as I'm concerned...gotta sign Zucker even though he was terrible in the playoffs, Nino is a question mark, Staal might need to go with the up year he had but long in the tooth and now would be the only time to get anything for him, Ennis (terrible player) will be bought out, Foligno (terrible) probably not tradeable with his contract...enjoy the ride Wild fans!
    • We packed four of us in the blind and had a blast!  Just about ready to give up and gave "one last call" only to have the birds blow up not 30 yards away from us.  One of the gobblers rubbed against the blind for two feet as he walked into the deeks- pretty dang cool!  Ryan made a perfect shot and dropped the bird in his tracks.  
    • Ryan.pdf The pdf shows up as a link for me.  Is that ok Borch?  
    • Twins are 33-91 against the Yankees since 2002! Its unbelievable how awful they play against them.    Stanton absolutely murdered that hanging curveball for a HR last night.
    • I was looking for reviews last night but only found a handful and they didn't really give me that much info. They seemed to be overall positive reviews but all were written after recently applying it so no info on longevity.
