      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 .

ATV ice equipment ideas

Recommended Posts

I have a 2004 Honda Rancher and I want to build some type of box for carrying ice fishing equipment (auger, 20# propane tank, vexilar, etc.) Just wondering if anyone had a picture of one they built. Just looking for ideas. Appreciate any suggestions.

I have an otter fishhouse. I just don't want to pack it full everytime I go out. This way I can set up the house without unpacking everything. Better accessibility is the reason I guess.

I saw some racks that attach to the back rack at the ice show I am not sure who makes them, maybe maddog gear? I know they have holders to mount to hold your auger but the rack was a box style and would hold a lot of stuff or 3 - 5gal buckets

Did anyone see that atv by the Jiffy booth at the icefishing show? It had a rack on the back that looked wide enough to carry a 20# tank. That's what I'm looking for. The one's that I've looked at don't look wide enough.

As far as auger mounts go, it's pretty hard to beat the Mad Dog Auger Mount. I tried to beat it doing it my own way, and now I have the Mad Dog. $40 well spent!

Good Luck,

MJ

Check tractor supply, Cabelas used to carry them,not sure if they do any more... I think Koplin makes them.

I bought a rack for the back on my ATV from Cabellas. It is 3 circular hoops that fold up when not in use. Each hoop will accomadate a 5 gallon buckt. I also have two milk crates on the back ATV rack right behind the seat. For the auger I use my front rack mounted gun racks for the auger, secured with a bungie cord. It I'm going a long ways I put the auger in the sled and use the travel cover to keep the snow out. It works pretty good. good luck and hang on. Bill

    • Just trying to get some opinions on how to do this. I bought a 60sqft mat from pexuniverse.com (HeatTech) is the brand name same as all the others from what I have read online. My question is prep and installation. I am building a  new home this is going to be located in the master bathroom which is OSB flooring (Blank Slate to start with).  I have read I could put this right onto the OSB and then trowel (3/8" plastic) over to tile my flooring. OR i could do a self lever concrete over the mat to make install of tile a little easier?  I am installing the 1"x1" Hexagon tiles which are in a 1'x1' mat.  Or how would you go about this? My father in-law thinks I should lay tar paper down then heating mat with a self leveler over that.  Just want install to go easy and not spend a ton. Thought? Advise?
    • No I dont, if I had to estimate it I would guess in the 750 range but that is only a guess. 
    • If your interested in some actual old barn tin I can give you a contact. Just shoot me a PM. he's located in Hudson, WI
    • Weekend forcast is predicting 1-3" of snow Thursday night. For sure I will be in a tree Thursday afternoon and Friday Morning...
    • I've only played with them in the store. Guys say your ipad or phone battery gets sucked down fast so if you are able to plug them in they work great. I believe its the same camera as the one used with the LX9 (i have one) and it works great.
    • super awsome, congratulations to your young man.
    • I really like the interior. Planning on doing something similar with the barn tin in mine. Did you just pick some up off hsolist?
    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Water temps are hovering around 48 degrees and fall fishing is phenomenal! Walleyes are biting anywhere from 14 to 30ft with jigging being the most effective method. Crappies are continuing to bite around sunken trees and deep holes with a good amount of perch mixed in. Anglers have had success trolling for large pike and muskies with jigging also bringing some to the boat.    We are getting fish houses ready for the 2017-18 ice fishing season and are very excited for hard water!   We recommending checking availability for winter ASAP!   Sunset Lodge
    • That makes sense, at least it will allow us to run a 4th line vs having to play with 3 lines for an extended time. 
    • Big 10 kind of ruined college hockey for me, I still catch a gophers game now and then but its pretty rare. Barely watch sports in general any more.
