      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 .

Just heard on the Noon news that a car went down on Coon Lake near Theilen Beach on the Northwest side. No details.

What is that in the box of the pickup? Is that an ATV?

I heard you get better traction when you leave them in the back of the vehicle when driving on marginal ice that is insufficient for passenger vehicle traffic.

I dont mean to be rude(maybe I do).. but HA HA to the vehicle owner for dumping their truck.. its sounds like they got a bit chilly in the cab to boot in the ice cold water. Its a good lesson that should keep them off the ice next time when its not ready.. which could also save the life of someone else assuming the ice is ok for a vehicle and drive out and get themselves killed... let alone someone trying to save the person in either case that went through the ice, your risking their lives too by putting them in harms was to try to save your ignorant butt.

If that is an ATV in the box.. I guess that is for looks?

Common sense.

was that dumb bass? Or stupid donkey? Hope no one was hurt and hope they got a good lesson on ice safety. It is going to be a bad year this year for vehicles, talk to your kids that drive and make sure they don't try to"get away from it all" by going onto the ice! Remember those two kids from Tonka a year or so ago, drove right into open water! Talk to the people you care about and tell them the ice is not safe for a car right now, no media hype needed but man, if it saves someone you know then media hype is worth it. Besides, we fisherpeople, watch the ice conditions and take precautions right? Ice hype by the media just leaves more fishable& quiet water for the rest of us!

so haaad

The story on the news said that the guy was elderly, couldn't swim and even had a hard time walking. And the guy boasts that he tries to be the first one to drive on the ice every year. This guy just proved that age and wisdom do not always grow together exponentially. Personally I do not mind walking out to ice fish.

Well.. that atv didnt wish its way into the back of the truck. He also stated he will be back out there after a week of below zero.. lets see if he can get pulled out for a 3rd time in a year.

How many times until the DNR issues him a ticket? Or he doesnt escape the cab of the truck.

I have no sympathy for this person, I do have sympathy for his insurance company if they are covering the damage.

I wonder what wise decisions this guy is making driving on the road every day.

      Sorry dude I tried but this page isn't most active with facebook groups being the biggest way most people share ice thickness in a realtime way.  There's only one way to really know and that's grab a spud bar and start hitting as you walk and drilling holes to see.

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.

      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels

      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.

      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
    • Wanderer
      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?
    • going4it
      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.
