      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 .

Eskimo Pop Up

Recommended Posts

SFBOY

I have seen quite a few of the Eskimo Pop ups on the ice this year. I was thinking it would be a nice thing to have. Does anyone have one and if so, please post how you like it. Please include how easy to set up, take down, and secure to the ice with the screws. Thanks.

I have one and it's great. Screws are easy to get into the ice and out. Set up and tear down is very easy. There is a thread in the equipment and expert information section on these. Everybody seems pretty happy with them.

I have a quickfish 3 and I love it.......set up and take down are very easy and it goes into a long backpack for easy carrying. It comes with ice anchors which you just put through the strap hole in each corner and screw into the ice. Overall it's a great portable house if you don't mind not having a floor.

hello all, i'm new here and just thought i would give my 2 cents on this here fish house. I have one and definately for the money its worth it, lots of room inside, it can fit 2 people plus sunflower with full size propane tank and lawn chairs decently. The downfall is the door kind of a pain. I haven't used the stakes yet that come with it i just bring a shovel and push a bunch of snow up on the sides and your good to go. However might need them stakes when its windy.

I second the "love it" comment. For the money, I think it's the best thing out there.

PICKED IT UP LAST NIGHT FROM FF. AMAZINGLY EASY AND FAST TO SET UP AND TAKE DOWN,(IN THE LIVING ROOM). HOPEFULLY THE SCREWS GO IN EASY. IF THAT IS THE CASE, IT WILL BE THE BEST $160 THAT I HAVE SPENT IN AWHILE. WILL FIND OUT TOMORROW.

THANKS FOR ALL OF THE ADVICE, I THINK I WILL BE VERY HAPPY WITH THIS PIECE OF EQUIPMENT.

I'm going on my second year with mine, and I love it. I also only use the ice screws when its windy, and then only on the corners and guy-out points on the upwind side. A medium otter sled fits perfectly inside one of these too. I built a bench on the sled and use it to haul all of my gear too. This makes it a lot easier to move to a new spot once you are all set up.

      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.

      Anyone else think the number of people ice fishing in the last 5 years has grown greatly in our area? To me it has and to me it seems alot harder now to find a spot of your own, or spots that have been pasted down on a lake that there arnt 5 to 50 people trying to fish! Gps doesn't help the cause either, I wonder what the future of ice fishing and the fish/ crappie population is going to look like in the next 5 to 10 years. Last year kinda shocked me to by the number of people out partying out on cedar and even the sound of subs going by in cars on the ice.. like really??! Could see the look of what is wrong with people from dads and familys out with their kids. Sorry about the rant

      I found exactly the same thing today. It was a steady 5" walking to the fishing spot. 3" of ice on the spot, if that. Cracks everywhere. Water pushing out of holes I had drilled. Not good.

      Is the Frabill a thermal flip over? It sounds like a steal to me. I would go for it if you’re looking for a house that has more room. I have a Frabill 2 man thermal flip over and I really like it.

      Steve, Thanks for helping me get a deal on my Otter. I was able to pick it up at Marine General on Monday. Can't believe all of the ice stakes that came with it. Bought one of the Eskimo drill adapters to install them.

      Just out on 1st Lake after work 5” solid clear ice out to 17’ of water

      Any new updates on the ice thickness.  Looking to get out on walk-able ice this weekend.  Seems like the darn winds blows 45 mph every day lately.
    • nofishfisherman
      Thanks for the reply, I'll check them out.

      I went out on Horseshoe on Sunday and where the ice remained from the first freeze it is a solid 6 in.  Where it recently froze over last week its was 3 inches at best.  Now that we have snow cover it will be hard to find that line.  I was out with the wheeler on sunday but stayed on the "old" ice that I knew was "safe".  I wouldn't use a wheeler from the access or go exploring quite yet.  Plan on heading back out Thursday and will try and give an update
