      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 .

Anyone hear anything good or bad about the new strike-lite ice auger. I really like the idea of no smoke! I heard they had a flooding issue last year and wondered if they got that cleared up.

Hey der Slacks....First off Welcome to FM/HSO/IceLeaders. We do have an equipment forum and a general Icefishing forum where you may get a few more replies to such a question. Our regional forums are for the most part a place to get info on the area in general, and it's fishing in specific, lodging, access spots, fishing tips, etc. We are a friendly bunch here on the LOTW forum and will try and field most anything if we have any light to shed on the subject though.

My friend Chris Hanson was up here fishing with me last year and his father came up one evening to fish with us and he had a brand new one. I have'nt caught wind of flooding issues with them, and from what I've seen I'd give it a big thumbs up myself, started fine, idled fine and cut darn nice thats for sure. Lightweight and smokeless, I punch quite a few holes, 100's if not 1000's in a few permanent huts thru a season and I'd sure like to have one for my own use no doubt about it. I'd say the only thing that may be considered a draw back with them is the fact that a guy is supposed to store and transport on 1 side of the machine. A guy would just need to take heed of this is all and that would'nt be a problem for most folks I'd reckon. Strikemaster makes a good product, I ran an old 2hp mag111 for many years and cut a gazillion holes with both an 8 and 10 inch bit.

Enjoy our winter season.....fiskyknut
