      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 does anyone else feel like the bring too much stuff when they go out icefishing? When I go with another person we seem to be bring more and more each year? I have an otter lodge and we usually bring a power auger, minnow bucket, three 5 gallon buckets, aqua vu camera, mr heater with the larger tank, vexilar, gps unit, plus rods, tackle and tip ups.. Ahhh it is driving me nuts. I mainly fish panfish so I need to move around. Other then pumping weights what should I do? Any tips on what other are doing will be greatly appreciated.

actually i am going to steal sudden impacts idea. this isn't mine so all credit goes to him. he uses a larger cooler, the kind you bring on a picnic or something. it has rollers on the bottom. and he just puts his 2 rods, minnow bucket, scoups, everything in there. and rolls it out to the spot. the cooler doubles for a seat also. well that is just an option for people that dont have a huge sled to haul stuff in.
in a bigger sled just bring what you need. power auger is nice but a hand one works great. once the ice gets over a foot n a half then stick with the power, but otherwise that is alot of extra weight.
but it sounds like ur ready to be stalled on the ice all winter lol. too much stuff for just panfishin.

Swill,

Definitely ditch some of the gear... Dropping from a 12 pack to a six pack doesn't save much weight.

I agree sometimes enough's enough but don't leave home any of the food, nothing shorten's a trip quicker than out of bait,beer or food. There are many times it boils down to not the early bird but the patient bird that catches the fish.

Fishing the lakes up here in the northern part of the state, it's like who cares how much junk you bring. We have been driving trucks on the ice for a couple of weeks now.

But I still pack lite, don't like load and unload tons of gear. I don't bring anything I don't need. Even if you have it, sorting threw all that stuff when you setup and or take down and move is a real pain. Other than bait, buckets, auger and the ice house everything I bring with can be fit into a medium sized storage bin. Most of the time I even forget food and drink(kinda dumb), so after about 4 hours on the ice my darn gut gets more attention than fishing. Gotta start packing food smile.gif

I guess I should mention this is only my 2nd year of being back into ice fishing after a 12 year or so hiatus, so I haven't collected to much junk to take with. And I hope that I don't get too far overboard with it either.
