      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 .

Fishing Hole sizes?

Recommended Posts

I like fishing in 10s but I don't like that they take longer to drill and that my tiny feet will fit in one. Those reasons make my favorite all around hole an 8 incher.

you cant beat the good ole 8 inch, works great. Maby use a 6 hand auger in early ice though. Ive never used a 10 inch but i suppose if someone i was fishin with had a 10 inch auger i would use em for tip ups though.

I like fishing out of a 6 if there isnt a freezing shut issue. Main reason is that I have had some nice fish come off just as I lift them from the water and with the 6 inch hole they dont have room to turn and get away.

I have yet to catch a fish that would not come through a 8 Inch hole. I drill a seperate hole for my flasher.

I use to use a ten but never found a reason that I really need that big of a hole and its dangerous for people with smaller feet.

Yes, it can turn their ankles or a childs leg can and will fall in.

10 in. for walleye fishn, though the lighter weight of 8 in. sure is nice when drilling lots of holes for pannies!

That's what I do but my 10" auger is old and a real beast, that and I need new blades for it. The 8" I bought new last year just for late ice panfishing and when you can't drive out.
