      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 use a couple of different methods....

1. I spear alot out of my QF 3 so no light is needed.

2. I have a coleman propane lantern that runs off of one pound cylinders. It puts out an unbeliveable amount of light even on a low setting.

3. When there is enough ice we will either take a battery along or hook up to the truck battery with a cable with two clips to power a low wattage light bulb. Works very slick as we have a hook on the lightbulb set up that attahces right to the roof of the house and gives good equal lighting.

Hope this helps!

What Buddah said. You can pick up 48 led ufo lights that run on 3 aa batteries at northern tool for about 10 or 12 bucks each. A good way to hang them is use the velcro hook system that frabill makes (pick them up anywhere they sell frabill products for around 5.99 for a set of two). The hooks attach to your poles with velcro,(wrap around them, very sturdy.) and can even fold up in your shack. I use two of the lights in my portable and they are awesome. Lightweight, compact and very portable. (I just put the lights in my gear bag, and hang them when needed) Good luck with your new Quickfish!

In my flipovers I like to use Frabill hooks to hang my jacket (I have the old style w/o velcro), rod bag, gas lanten, etc. Is the poles on thes hub style shacks strong enough to hang your gear from without having to worry about the tent sagging or a pole getting messed up?? I'm considering getting one of these but want to make sure I don't have to put everything on the floor/ice where it can get in the way or wet.

Good Morning,

I have an Otter Wilderness Walleye flip over. I have some nylon strapping with hooks that slide over the square tubes. Then I bought an LED camp light that I hook on it. It runs on a couple of AAA or AA batteries. That provides great light. When done fishing, unhook it and put it in the pail. I think the light was 7 or 8 bucks. It is round and looks like a spaceship. That works for me. You might need a couple for a larger house. Have a good day.

Thanks, Bruce

I just picked up a river rock LED lantern from Target for my Otter Den. The thing is awesome and I think it would work well for you too.

    • I just read as of today, no lakes in Mn are ice free
    • I hit the woods yesterday morning and snuck into a little clearing and ended up being anout 50 yards from where they were roosting. They were very vocal and a few hens sounding off too. Soon as i started to call after they flew down the hens really got into it and accually pulled the toms to the west of me. I did get 1 to come in but only had like a 5-6 inch beard and 2 differnt groups of jakes so knowing there is around 20 toms in the flock of 80 or so i passed on him . Pretty hard to compete with that many hens. The snow is finaly starting to go so i think it will only get better. Heading out in the morning for a short hunt due to work.
    • Still on a roll heading into 2018 
    • Might have to as my garage up north is darn near full to. Sleds will be going into storage soon so that will free up a little space. Storage space is actually pretty cheap compared to building your own
    • Dang Walleye, dude you need to build a Toy barn out back to start holding all these toys! 
    • Thanks guys!  Excited to be back, and thankful for the late allowance!  I hit may 2 - 5th.  Bringing my boy on his first time out this weekend with a gun.  Looking froward to it all!  Good luck guys!!!
    • Will take a little bit to get used to but will spend less time mowing this year and more time doing fun things. If anyone is looking for and older cheaper riding mower I will have a couple of them for sale as soon as I get them out of storage next week. Ones a Craftsman and ones a Scotts. Both well maintained and good shape and will be in the 250 to 300 range.
    • Old Man Winter is refusing to loosen his grip on Wisconsin, dropping from a few inches to more than 2 feet of snow in across the state in a series of snowstorms in the last week. Crews from Pattison State Park and the Brule River State Forest continued to groom ski trails and reported good to excellent conditions. Other properties have put away grooming equipment but skiing was still fair on ungroomed trails through central and even southern Wisconsin. After another 15 inches of snow this week, ski trails were groomed April 17 at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase Thompson, DNRThe weather kept many fishermen inside this week, but warm weather this week should bring out lots of anglers. Walleye fishing was picking up on the Oconto, Peshtigo, Menominee and Wolf rivers prior to the snow, but then water temperatures dropped dramatically. There have still been hundreds of shore anglers and boaters out on the Fox River to catch a trophy walleye. Sturgeon are in the Wolf River, but with cold water it will be at least a week or longer before spawning will occur. This satellite image taken by NOAA about noon April 19 shows snow cover across almost all of WisconsinPhoto credit: NOAAMost Door County ramps and access points are blocked with snow. Before the storm fishing was fairly productive. Boats launching at Sturgeon Bay were trolling for browns. Steelhead fishing was good before the storm with numbers of fish showing up in creeks. .
