      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 .

Ice Creepers

I know that there was a post somewhere but haven't been able to locate it. Anyone ever use the ice creepers from Cabelas? Can anyone give me a comparison on these and the type sold here? They look very similar. Any other models out there worthy? Any info is much appreciated.

Fish On!!

FOGS , search for "stabilicers". Thier the best I have ever used. A little more spendy, but youll never have to replace them from wear! And replacing the studs is a breeze.

Are you able to give me the advantages and disadvantages of the ice grips sold here? Same for the Stabilicers. I'm looking for unbiased objective comments. I'm trying to make the best informed decision I can and without your folks help, this would never be possible. So thanks for all your replys.

Fish On!

Fish On,
I believe we've gone over some of your issues, with respect to your Boot size of 12 1/2 and adding the fact that they are mickey mouse boots to boot smile.gif The stabilicers are a good choice for you.

Anything over size 12 in normal snowboots or size 10 in Mickey mouse snowboots, you'll definitely need to go with the stabilicer.

Rick,
My mickey boots are size 9r. Would I go with the largest pair of ice grips?

Looks like URL is out of the question for this weenend, but I would definately like to make it up the weekend after next. I'm looking to get cleats before I head up to help combat the "stand and rotate around the hole" routine from the effects of the auger and the slippery ice.
Last year, a few of us headed to Lower Trelipe near Brainerd for early ice crappies. I would be willing to bet that the three of us fell a minimum of 5 times each. I know for a fact that 2 of us initially tasted the ice just by stepping off of shore and onto lake. Its kinda humorous watching others take the spill but undoubtedly painful to have it happen to yourself. Oh, we never did manage to find the slabs either.

Thanks again Rick for your reply.

Fish On!

Fish On,
I want to be completely honest woith you here. I have not tested the stabilicers, so I cannot speak for their durability after years of use. They do hold the ice nicely from the reports I've been given.

I can tell you that the Ice Grips are durable, light yet industrial grade, and you will feel like you are walking on nice solid ground rather than ice with them on.

The X-large size will go well with your Mickey Mouse boots up to size 10. So, yes, I'm sure you'll be happy with your Ice Grips.

I don't disagree with Bigtoes statemment, but I have to respectfully disagree with Sand Burr.

The Stabilicers are indeed a nice product. They are not hands down the best out there. The Ice Grips here will compete with them very nicely. Fact is, in many situations they will outperform the Stabilicers. In fairness, the same can be said for the Stabilicers.

      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
    • monstermoose78
      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      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!
