      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 .

Frabill Predator of X2?

Recommended Posts

YOur going to buy a new portable. You can spend up to 700 bucks. Do you buy the X2 or the New Predator. That Frabill sure looks like a great buy for 600 bucks. Any thoughts/opinions?

I have the X2 and love it! I absolutely love it. Those Frabill seats do look comfy tho. I think that it comes down to personal taste. I went with the X2 because I had a friend with one, and they can link! It is fun having them hooked up and having more company! In the end I think you will be happy with either one tho!

If your going to buy the x2 make sure its the on with the black roof. I heard it retains heat a lot better than the old style x2 white roof. I have a frabill so would give you props to buy on of those as I feel like A loner on the ice lots of blue out thier and not enough black come to the dark side you wont be disappointed...

I purchased and X2 last year and don't have many complaints other than I am not a big fan of the white ceiling...I think it keeps heat in just fine but it keeps the house too brite....I also had to get a new tent after last year but they covered it under warranty and see that they beefed up the areas that I had a problem with last year

Also interested in this thread. Have been looking at all the possiblities for portables and I think it may come down to what other people have to say about them. Frabill, Otter, Clam, too many choices.

I bought the Predator. Very nice house and it is $100.00 less than the X-2. I couldn't find anything about the X2 that was better than the Frabill and the Frabill seats are very comfy.

Don't wait long, the Frabill Predators are in very short supply.

No more available from Frabill for this season so what is in the retailers hands now...is it.

I sold the last ones we could get today, and I ordered all I could find, and even sold the display today as there is no more to be had, or to sell.

Don't wait for a end of the year bargain because there will not be any left to bargain on.

i was in your same shoes a month ago. i was whilling to spend 700 dollars. which one? the x2 or the preditor. after doing some research i went with the preditor. its a 100 dollars cheaper, has better seats, a more durrible sled, the canvas is all black, and i thinks its a bit bigger. with the extra 100 dollars i saved i was able to buy the travel cover and a tow hitch/bar for pulling behind my wheeler. both houses are great houses! whichever house you go with you will be happy

pretty much my exact thoughts. I liked the pole system of the frabill better as well as the seats. When I was checking them out there were two differences. X2 seats moved front to back which is nice, but the frabill has windows you can remove or replace. I also liked the sled better and went with 100 savings and joined the dark side!!!! great upgrade from my little guide!

    • And Del says ya can eat as many as ya want now!!!     
    • great cheap treat those smoked eggs.  
    • I actually prefer Honeycrisp, because of the sweet/tart flavor. Sweet tango ain't bad either. The others get TOO mushy and seem to lose flavor. But, it's a personal preference. Someone'll whine about there are better baking apples.  Made my apple roast the other day with the Honeycrisp, but put it in the crockpot instead of the oven. Came up with this 6-7 yrs ago.  And there's even a picture of it, since words give you so much difficulty, leech.            Reb's  Apple- pork roast


        One boneless 2-3 lb Pork Butt Roast Two cups  Fresh Apple Cider Rosemary Seasoned salt Black pepper to taste 4 oz Cinnamon Apple Sauce (These are the “Snak Pak” size cups) One  large Yellow Onion, sliced thin              Marinate the roast in the cider in a Zip-Loc bag, in the fridge, for 6-8 hours, turning frequently. Place roast in a greased baking dish, with some of the marinade. Sprinkle liberally with seasonings and lightly with the Rosemary.  Place thin layer of onions on top. Pour apple sauce over top. Put in a 300* oven for 45 mns to one hour, uncovered.  Cover and cook  for30- 45 mns- longer or until meat thermometer registers 155-160*. Do not overcook. Let sit covered for 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!  
    • @RebelSS, do you recommend any specific type of apples?
    • I forgot to put in the segment winners Spring        Juneau4 Summer     Henry's Heroes Playoff        BlackLundProV
    • Well quit hijacking the thread!!! we'll find someone serious sooner or later!
    • They can explain that over and over and I’m not buying it. I changed my ducer to the 12 like my 18. 
    • So your trying to work out the picture problem-right?
    • You might want to throw that on the C/list since by the time we are done, you may just have to give it away. Or tow it out to the woods with that heavy support rope!
