      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 .

What's the biggest house out there now?

Recommended Posts

Aces In The Hole

Just wondering if anyone noticed any of the bigger houses out on the lakes yet? I have a 8 x 19 house that I keep at a resort and was hoping to get it out tomorrow, but the owner said he couldn't put the house out yet because the houses where getting flooded and he would have to charge us extra to get it out today, because he needs to plow an open spot on the ice for the house. Which I don't get, because he will have to plow and move the house in a couple of days anyway without charging us extra because he said he would have the house out by Friday the 28th. Am I just over thinking this or does it seem like the owner would rather just put the house out when he puts the rest of the house out? Someone tell me I am not crazy.... confused.gif

The house is on the south shore..

maybe its hazard pay...there are a few pockets of slush on the south east side at least. i havent seen any of the larger wheel houses out yet on the main lake. i heard that a lot of the resorts are holding off until the 27th. a portable is a better option right now anyway because the bite is a little spotty so mobility is the key. however it is nice to use a nice warm permanent for base camp.

My buddy has several wheel houses out on the west side about 3 miles out. The biggest out is 24ft tandem wheel house. He also has a 21 ft wheel house out.

Not sure where you are out of, but we have our 24' Ice Castle as well as all our 20' houses out in Isle Bay - if you have a wheel house, you can drive right out onto our road for a $10.00 road fee. If you want a spot plowed out for your house, we'll do that for $20 - you are welcome to leave it as long as you want to - each drive out would be an additional $10 or a seasonal pass for 1 vehicle for $150.

I was out on Popes reef Saturday and saw a permanent 10x24+. It was a small trailer house looking house. I had 12" good ice and no slush on Popes. Lybacks had 2 10x16' houses out there as well as a narrow road.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try

      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?

      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!
    • leech~~
      Ok but with all those Trout. Bring a tow rope as I may be stuck in the slush!
