      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 .

scared of kennel

I have a 2 1/2 year old GSP. He is a inside/outside dog. He goes out to his kennel when we leave the house and not home. He never gave us any problem doing this. He would usually sense when we were leaving and go in his kennel right away. His other option is a create down in the basement. He usually would prefer the outside vs. the inside kennel. Now he won't go in is outside kennel if he knows we are leaving. He will run up to the bedroom closet and hide. He even puts his head in the corner and looks away when he sees me coming to CARRY him to the kennel. What can I do. Why is he so scared of the kennel. It makes him shake when he knows he is going in there.

any advice would be great. Thanks

Did someone do something to him in the kennel when you were not at home? We had a lab that would go into the kennel and she would beeline for her doghouse. We never figured out what happened, we thought maybe the neighbor did something to her because he never really cared for her. It did get better over time though. Hope someone else can give you some good advice or that it gets better over time!

We did have a substitute mail man that never really cared for the dog. For the normal mail man the dog will sit and wait to get a pat on the head. With the other he just barks. We also have people that work at a near by factory try and take a nap in front of our house during their lunch. Maybe a little footage from the aqua view in the near future.

I think someone is doing something to Him in the kennel while you are gone. Maybe neighbor kids teasing him.

Go into the kennel with him. Sit and pet him and give him some good all over slobbering attention. Stay in there with the door open for a while. If he get's up and leaves coax him back in. Don't discipline him. This is the one time I would advocate treats... Get him to come in and go out on his terms.

As he goes in it use the command 'kennel' and praise him for going in. Let him know he's a good boy, when he leaves, just stay put and wait for him to come back in... It may take a few sessions, but I think you can turn it around.

While you're gone give him a big smoked beef bone to gnaw on. Don't let him have it anywhere but in his kennel. Then he can begin to associate something good with the kennel again.

I would set up a trail camera pointing down towards the kennel and see if you can catch an image or 2 of what is going on. Even if they aren't coming all the way up to the kennel, you will have a time stamp on it to know when something is getting him riled up. Get a digital with a 256k card and empty it each night to see if something is going on...

Good Luck!

Ken

Labs is right.

Shower him with attention inside the kennel. Spend a lot of time with him inside. If he goes out that is ok. Just keep working it slowly and he will be ok.

Put in toys, treats, rawhide etc. Work it slow and have small victories.

Somebody must have done something to him to make him that.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.

      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!

      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?
