      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 .

Run the pump often or put ice in the live well to keep the water cool and fresh.

if I know I am going to keep fish, and I will be on the water all day, I will fill the live well from my garden hose then just run the airiater. But I dont normally keep fish so not a big problem for me.

I use a cooler without water and frozen milk jugs. The fish will keep fine for over 24 hours if needed.

I use that additive when the weather is really hot and it works very well. Except I don't have recirc so I have to continuously cycle new water in so have to add more powder regularly (or ice for that matter).

Bring a cooler 1/2 full of ice and then put the fish in a garbage bag over the ice. This is what we do in Canada and it works very well grin.gif

ice in the livewell... keeping the water cool helps keep the fish lively and obviously alive. I just bring a cooler with 10lbs or so of ice & add as needed. Recirc the water in the livewell from time to time helps too.

If the conditions call for it I do - but since I repeatedly circulate new water in to the livewells I have to repeat it in order to be effective. I think that is the name of the stuff but have to confirm it tonight when I get home. Stuff is expensive so only use it during tournaments in hot weather.

When the water gets warm it has a hard time holding oxygen and this product helps a ton. I also agree with the ice, ice helps cool the water, in turn that allows the water to hold more oxygen and also slows the amount of oxygen the fish is burning.

The powder stuff I use in the livewell on really hot days in addition to ice is called "Rejuvenade" and it must help because I have never lost a healthy fish. I have lost some that were hooked very deep but that was likely not related to water temp/condition.
