      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 .

Does anyone know if they sell those strikemaster augers they drill all the tourny holes with every year?? I did the tourny a couple years ago and I almost bought one, but didn't pull the trigger. Looking to buy one this year

Save your money and buy the new Ion, best auger I've ever used, never mess with gas and oil and gummed up carbs again.

Just got the ion x and have used it a couple times and i am impressed. The first time out i drilled prolly 15 holes and the second time about 30 holes and it works great just not quite as fast as my strike master. I would suggest getting the new ion x if you can find one.

ya they sell the augers that they drilled holes with for a discounted price every year. First come first serve when there gone there gone but they're around for quite a while. no need to stand in line and get there early for that.

I also have the new Ion X. I love it so far BUT there may be a flaw in the new design that allows more ice and slush under the blade in the casting. I noticed it for the first time the other day when it was windy and cold. It wouldnt drill holes and i noticed it. Had to stick my finger in there and try and scrape away much of the ice and snow twice. Was a pain in the butt and had to be careful not to ding the blades or cut myself. I've heard others complain about this with the new model. Never used or owned the original Ion but i heard the design on those is a little different and they didnt have this problem as much. And yes I always run my auger for a few seconds when I'm done drilling each hole as to try and prevent this and I dont leave the bottom lay in the snow and water to help it bulid up. I also made sure I ran it in reverse and forward for a couple seconds after each hole after the first time and i still had to scrape the second time. I think it may be a design flaw. I hope not cuz its alot of money and I love it so far other than that.

The electrics are truly awesome in general. Fast and quiet. However, if you want a pretty good deal on the tourney augers go to D Rock landscaping on Hwy 8. When I got mine, they were all out, but called the factory and got me a brand new one for the same price.
