      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 .

Heard Vexilar is coming out with new flashers

Last I heard, they were looking at some options but nothing in stone for anything new. Rumor had it that they were increasing their power, but from what I was told, that is just a rumor. They have played with that option for a while and decided to stick with what works.

I heard Strikemaster was coming out with a new auger. Actually I know they are but don't know the specs. When I was in there in March getting blades for my auger they said they were coming out with something.

The new auger is the lazer mag pro and it tears through ice. From what I hear nils better step up their game. wink

I know a few that tested the new Pro from SM and it is the cat's meow from what I hear. The new powerhead is crazy fast and very light.

I also know someone designing a new reel for ice fishing for next season. It is going to be a hot ticket and will work awesome.

I do believe that jason Mitchell will have a few changes. Yes the new.

Yes, the new Pro from Strikemaster is a nice auger.

Nils will be on its game also.

Are you gonna still have to scoop your holes out with the nils though? grin

If you use it right, one does not have to scoop much.

I also used the new Strikemaster but I would not say that it is faster than a Nils.

I don't really have to scoop much if at all with the SM I have now.

Me either. I know I wont be buying a Nils but rather another strikemaster since it has been such a great auger.

The new Pro is a light fast cutting auger and now SM has a auger that could compete with the Nils.

Hopefully for the new owners the new engine will work well for an extended period of time.

What about Marcum? Why was XXXX's in walker selling them for $299? Something new from them?

I wonder the same thing. The handwriting between the lines sure seems to point that way. Why else would they blowout current stock at that price? I don't believe for a minute that they just want to reduce inventory.

    • The only thing to use them for, If I had one!  
    • Utube Randy Newberg spring bear hunts. He has a ton of DIY info on spring bear hunting
    • I've never used electric jacks, or hydro. I've heard they are pretty nice, and guys like them. It will be interesting to see how you feel about them after a season or two. I'd like to hear your input on them after you've used them awhile.
    • Yes, out of 100lb logs so they can't carry it away!
    • Really ufatz, that's how tomorrow  will affect fishing?? It all depends on what your fishing for. If I'm just off the flats chasing walleyes it would be interesting to see if they work there way up on top mid day. Probably not. To much of a short window.. 
    • Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.
    • My bait is getting hit but the bear does not like the large, cinnamon gum drops i added to the bait! He will drag them out and move on to other tasty treats. I do have red licorice to add next time.
    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
