      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 .

Homemade scent killer question?

Recommended Posts

Grandee

Just wondering if anyone knows the time frame on which the homemade scent killer stays effective--2 weeks, month, two months? Ingredients-peroxide,baking soda, non-scent soap

Hey Deitz. For the unscented soap, can I use scent killer shampoo? It has a slight odor to it but its supposed to be scent free. Or do I have to buy something special?

I use the Robinson Outdoors scent-killing shampoo in mine. Its so nice to make this stuff and not have to spend $7 for 16 oz of it. I can make a gallon for like $3. Deitz, do you think we could get that recipe stuck to the top of the hunting section?

I'd like to know that recipe. If you don't mind posting the proportions of ingredients, I'd sure like to see them.

no need to sticky it to the top.. I hate it when boards get stuck with a billion stickies at the top... the recipee is quite easy and I will post it whenever anybody wants it... The store bought stuff may work better.. but I have never had a problem using this stuff... and you do save a ton of moolah!

here you go...

16oz Peroxide

16oz distilled water

1/4cup Baking Soda

1oz non-Scent shampoo

Mix very lightly otherwise you will have a mess, and let sit for 24 hours... Done! I use a spray bottle to apply to the cloths... serious about hte mixing part, it can make a mess, I feel it best to stir it with a large cooking spon rather than shake it. I then put it in old 1 gal milk containers.

deitz, does it get messy after it has been put into a spray bottle and then shook around in the truck? or by me, out of force of habit prior to application?

I also just made some of this up. I have shaken it a few times since the cooling off period and it fizzes a little but not much else. I ommitted the shampoo from mine mainly because the scent killer shampoo I have uses two different dyes and I couldn't confirm if either used UV. Plus, I read on another post that this is mainly to help it adhere to clothes better. If I can find some unscented and uncolored shampoo, then I will add to the next time.

chucker, if you dont have any scent free shampoo, give some laundry soap a try, i have used the Sport wash laundry detergent once or twice while making it if i didnt hav any shampoo handy and didnt notice any difference.

Picks- once everything has had time to mix, 24 hours or more, then it doesnt seem to fizz up much any more... I have not had it be a problem after say 3-4 days.

Does using a peroxide based scent killer bleach out clothing or negatively affect gear? Just curious because I'm mixing up a batch per instructions found here. The commericial brands used in any quantity do get expensive. Also, what do people do about descenting bows. Shooting in hot weather, smokey ranges has fragranced by bow.

I guarentee nothing.. but can tell you that the peroxide has not bleached my clothes...I think it may have something to do with the baking soda? But not sure.. To de-scent my bow. I take a paper towel and spray the same stuff and wipe my bow down. At times it has left a white residue on my bow.. which I was able to wipe off pretty easy.

the peroxide used in the spray shouldn't do any harm to clothes since it is such a low percentage(th estuff you have hear that is used to bleach hair is a much highier concentrate), but as deitz said! no guarenties!

      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.
    • FirstIce
      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.
    • icepike 1
      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.

      Anyone else think the number of people ice fishing in the last 5 years has grown greatly in our area? To me it has and to me it seems alot harder now to find a spot of your own, or spots that have been pasted down on a lake that there arnt 5 to 50 people trying to fish! Gps doesn't help the cause either, I wonder what the future of ice fishing and the fish/ crappie population is going to look like in the next 5 to 10 years. Last year kinda shocked me to by the number of people out partying out on cedar and even the sound of subs going by in cars on the ice.. like really??! Could see the look of what is wrong with people from dads and familys out with their kids. Sorry about the rant
    • Bass Thumb
      I found exactly the same thing today. It was a steady 5" walking to the fishing spot. 3" of ice on the spot, if that. Cracks everywhere. Water pushing out of holes I had drilled. Not good.
