      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 .

Mr. BigBuddy in a Claim Guide

Depends on the weather!

I use a Buddy in my Guide and only get cold when its really chilly/windy out. The rest of the time its fine. I would bet you will only have to have it on low. Maybe higher if you want to dress lighter, but I doubt it.

I use a little buddy in my guide up here in ND. Fished many days in -10. If you keep your edges sealed well it gets very comfortable in the house.

I have the big buddy in my guide. I very rarely put it on high. Usually only to get the initial "thaw" when I first set it up. The built in fan also seems to help quite a bit. The big buddy will definitely keep you warm even on the coldest days.

I have an Otter Small Den and with a Big Buddy on high it will cook me out. I was out for trout opener and I thik it was -20 or -30 and it still was too hot on high.

We use a little buddy in our guide. Plenty of heat there for most people in even the coldest. I have 3 little buddys and love them, but I would not be apposed to using a big buddy either.

I have an otter cabin. If the sun is shining, the buddy on low will keep me plenty warm. Witout the sun, at temperatures below 20 the buddy does not keep me as warm as I would like even on high (which is a temp that allows me to take my coat off). At that point I switch to my mr heater cooker which keeps me warm in any temerature I have ever fished. I carry them both, love them both depending on the situation.

Using my BidBuddy heater, I can fish in my Eskimo lodge wearing a sweatshirt and jeans. I still wear the pac boots so my feet don't get cold, but the heater on low will keep me toasty warm.

I have a big buddy for my Voyager and it keeps it toasty as long as it stays lit. On windy days I have a heck of a time keeping the pilot lit. I don't bank cause I like to move around. The drafts blow the light out on windy days. I went back to the sunflower as they stay lit no matter what and it makes my life so much easier!

I have the Big Buddy and use it in my Guide, and it is perfect. Fits nicely between the seats in the back of the sled & I just run the propane bottle (I use the hose/20 lb bottle setup) out the back zippered door. Works great! I have a regular Buddy as well, but it just never put out enough heat for me unless it was above 20 with no wind.
