      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 6010 Hideout ice houe vs Clam 5600

Recommended Posts

The wife would like to pick up one of these cabin ice houses so she could stand up and stretch the back once in a while. We have an older Clam Fish Trap Guide that is not so tall. Not being opposed to getting new fishing equipment, I said OK and started looking at the options. The Clam 5600 and Frabill 6010 are in the price range.

1st some questions. We generally take sleds out on the ice so:

1. Can either or both be pulled behind a sled?

2. Is it possible to rig it so it rides on top of my current Fish Trap Guide? or

3: Do I need another sled to pull it out?

4: What are the pros and cons of both.

I plan on trying to judge both of these at a local outdoor store soon (and any others), purchasing and fishing ASAP. It has been too long without a fish on.

Thanks for the replys in advance.

I like the Clam Command Post and Base Camp, the Eskimo Quick Fish 3 and 6 are basically the same for a little less green.

To answer your questions but about this shack

1. Yes, on your back or on top your current house.

2. No, its light and stackable on your current house

3. No, same as #2.

4. Pros-Light and plenty of head room and lots of fishing space

Cons-No floor and needs ice anchors on windy days (included in package)

1- I know the clam has a board over the hole openings to keep the snow out when transporting that sometimes comes out.

I would just buy a voyager or an X2, you can stand up in them and as you know, they are way more mobile and quicker to set up.
