      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 .

Auger question

Recommended Posts

Dale Rueber

Currently I only have a 6" hand auger and I'm looking to upgrade. I have been looking at the electric augers because then I don't have to mess with gas.

Does anybody have or used a Strikemaster Electra Laser (ELL-8) or a similar auger? Would I be better off with a gas auger?

I wrote the manufacturer and they said the ELL-8 would drill 20-28 holes in 2' of ice on a single charge. For my use that sounds more than sufficient.

I've got an 8" lazer hand auger...I personally would also like to go the electric route. I usually hand drill about half a dozen holes, before camping on a spot that I drill about three or four holes more. So, usually about shy of a dozen holes.

i currently have a lazer 8" hand auger a 6"regular hand auger and a gas 8" stikemaster auger. the gas is the way to go. i know people who have owned the electric and it takes for ever to drill a hole and you have to either drag the battery or drive to your honey hole.

Have you tried using the serated blades that they make for them?Its kind of like a chipper style,Ive had them on mine for some time and they cut great.You may want to take your auger shaft In and see if there is a problem with it.I recently took my Strikemaster to a place in NewBrighten called D rock.They are a Strikemaster dealer and can probably help you out.Hope this helps............
