      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 .

How much bait??

Recommended Posts

How much are you guys putting down on your first baiting? How much will it take to start pulling them in? We have 4 55 gallon barrels of candy, and am debating on getting more.

Depending on how much bait you put out and how often you bait would determine how much bait you need. Since the baiting season is a week shorter this year, I would say you should be ok. The group of guys that I hunt with bait almost every day.We have 3 chest freezer full of doughnuts, meat scraps from a local butcher shop, we have a 55 gallon drum full of corn and oats that is fermenting in sugar, we will have another one full of sweet corn and apples, grease, and some dog food.We run about 9 to 10 baits for 6 guys. I like giving the bear as much variety as I can so if you can get your hands on some bait go for it otherwise you should be ok.

How much would you put out if you could only bait once a week to ten days?

At the most I'd stretch it 7 days. It would be hard to get enough bait on to keep them interested past that. I bait every 5 days and put around 150#'s out each time.

boar...to answer your question, all I do is mix the sugar with the oats, add water, use a little yeast and let it sit out in the sun covered up. I have a batch going right now and it looks and smells really good. Next week I will add some apples to the mix as well. We did this last year and the bears seemed to like it a lot.
