      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 .

Was just discussing this morning with my wife my dilemma. Going pheasant hunting tomorrow, Sun morning I'd like to go bow hunting but I should get going early and claim a spot for pheasant hunting, will be pheasant hunting every night next week, then heading for SoDak on the 21st for five days of pheasant hunting, then taking some time off the first week in Nov to bow hunt during the rut - decisions, decisions!!!

Life is good!!! The best time of the year is here!!!

Wish the better half here was that understanding!!! frown.gif Guess I can't complain though, T - 6 days until I leave for Colorado elk trip!

By the way, from what I've seen the last few days and heard from others, I wouldn't wait until November for rut activity. Seems to really be picking up already now!

When I was first going out with my wife, she said she couldn't believe that I'd just take off for weekends at a time, now 18 years later guess shes used to it and plans accordingly. Shes going shopping this weekend and heading to her Mom's next weekend.

You're right, deer are going to start heating up but pheasants come first, I maintain two labs and love to hunt pheasants, going to hit them hard. But I love deer hunting too so when the rut really heats up, and I get back from SoDak, I'll bowhunt morning and evening and hunt pheasants during the day. I'll probably lose 10 pounds in the next two weeks. Good thing I drink beer so I don't waste away!!! grin.gif

Lawdog... best of luck to you! That would be an awesome hunt!

When the Lil Mrs and I were dating I told her that she could tell me anything that she wanted to but "Don't ever tell me that I can not go hunting." To date she has never told me that! If fact she is giving my son and I an early Christmas present in a guided deer hunt in northern MN. I think that she still thinks that I am crazy to get up and leave at Oh-Dark-Thirty to hunt but hey... that's what I do. Take car and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

When I started dating my wife I told her she would not be seeing me that much in the fall. She asked if she could get a bow and hunt with me to see what all of the fuss was about. I thought no problem, she would only be a fair weather hunter I figured. Well long story short I cannot get her out of hunting camp, she takes 3 day weekends and 2 weeks off for the prime rut and is thinking of taking off more this year. I wish she would just go shopping once in a while. grin.gif

      Are they both the same age?  Equal condition?  Do you hand drag or machine pull?  Weight will matter a lot. You really have to consider how you plan to use the house.  Happiness with the houses performance is the biggest key.   Otherwise it appears to be a trade from a $480 house to a $700 house based on new house prices if I looked at the right Frabil.

      It's not thermal. How's frabill's customer service in case you break a poll or something?

      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.

      I love my frabill !!

      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.
