      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 .

So, last night my wife wanted to go to Mankato to run some errands. Fine and dandy but I said we needed to make a pit stop in Madison Lake. grin.gif When we opened the door at Reel Fishing and Tackle, a good portion of the whole crew (Joe, Matt, and Katy) was there. Great. smirk.gif Well, my daughter took over the minnow tanks, my wife checked out the fish batter, tackle and underwater cameras and I proceeded to try on a set of Arctic Armor. Once I got the suit on, Joe said "take a walk outside for a bit and we'll wait here". blush.gif I have to say, despite never using it (yet), all of the chatter about this stuff is about as accurate as it gets. The suit is amazing and so is the price. $300.00 for a suit is darn tough to beat; well, real tough to beat because it came home with us. grin.gif We also walked out of there with a handful of #3 Salmo Chubby Darters that I've been looking for and some fish batter Joe talked my wife into. If it would have been up to my daughter, we also would have left with all of their live spearing decoys. grin.gif

Once again, folks, if you have the time, stop in and visit our South Central MN forum sponsor. Reel Fishing and Tackle is the real deal!

PDOGG,

I see you said you traded your auger in for a new one. Do they take in trades for a new auger? I have a three year old stike master that i would like to upgrade??

They would probably take that in on a trade. They were pretty fair on mine. In the past they have also let me trade in electronics.

The suit is amazing. I put it to the test this morning; I wore jeans and a sweatshirt under "the gear" and was plenty warm fishing outside hole-hopping.

We will look at trades on augers and electronics. Just bring your old one in and we'll see what we can do. Just FYI, we do not quote trades via email or over the phone.

Joe, Matt, Katy and the gang.

      looks like 3 so far.  anybody else up for this?

      Sorry dude I tried but this page isn't most active with facebook groups being the biggest way most people share ice thickness in a realtime way.  There's only one way to really know and that's grab a spud bar and start hitting as you walk and drilling holes to see.

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.

      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels

      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.

      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
    • Wanderer
      Are they both the same age?  Equal condition?  Do you hand drag or machine pull?  Weight will matter a lot. You really have to consider how you plan to use the house.  Happiness with the houses performance is the biggest key.   Otherwise it appears to be a trade from a $480 house to a $700 house based on new house prices if I looked at the right Frabil.

      It's not thermal. How's frabill's customer service in case you break a poll or something?
    • going4it
      The only problem I had with my frabill was its weight. It was a tank to pull and tough to put in the bed of the truck.
