      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 .

The Chair

Recommended Posts

So I have a little Chappell 2000 that I just got for this year. It is about as uncomfortable as it gets with the lack of space. Sitting on the 5 gallon buckets (even with a cushion) with no backrests is killing me. I see the Clam Ice chair, Keeper Deluxe, and other models of ice chairs that come with a back rest. I am looking for any info on these options or ideas others may have. Thanks in advance! Your info will save my back and my patience!

I used a small folding camping chair and it worked great. $15 at Cabelas or Gander. HT makes a chair for like $10 thats nice but small. I also used a small canvas bag chair and it was comfy. I recomend ya hit Cabelas or Gander and try out some different chairs and see what fits you leg length and rear width the best. Seriously.

I had some cheaper folding chairs that the arms would break when you pushed off to get up from time to time. Last fall I picked up a folding chair from Fleet Farm, the legs go straight down from the arms. On the right side is a little table that folds out and on the left are some pouches for storage. Best off all the chair was on sale for $20.00

I have used the clam ice chair, and it does make a big difference with the backrest. Plus you have storage and can carry it on you back. The keeper chair to me looks a bit bulky. The clam chair is nice but if you don't want to spend 80 bucks i would go with the above suggestions.

I have the keeper deluxe it is small with a small backrest. It works for me and you can also just take your gear put it in the chair throw it over your shoulder, hand carry the auger and away you when you dont need the shack.
