      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 .

I got Hunter on the 15th, he weighed almost 6 1/2 pounds, 8 days into this he weighs 16 1/2 pounds.. hes growing fast.

He was on Noble and over 7 days i slowly took him off that and put him on Eagle Pack, and i always had water down for him 24/7 till a few days ago, now if the water bowl is full he will sit there and drink it, no matter how he feels till its gone.. Then he throws up the water and he gets the runs.

I hate to do it but now i have to give him water every hour or so like a 1/2 cup.. Has this happened to anyone else, am i doing something wrong?

I posted this under huntings dogs with no response so i thought maybe someone could help me here?

All I can say is take him into to your vet. Something is making that dog thirsty and denying it water may not be the healthy solution. Although it might be cleaner for you.

I remember reading something when I was younger, about some kid that craved salt. The kid would eat nothing but salty foods and straight salt. The parents and doctors thought this was weird so they cut back his salt and then the kid died. After doing the autopsy, they discovered that what ever gland or body function helps the body absorb salt wasn't doing it's job (or something along those lines). His body was telling him to eat more salt so he did. When they denied him of it he died. Sad story but it points out that the body sometimes knows more than our brains do.

I would get him to the vet. Excessive drinking and urination can be signs of a urinary tract infection or could be the puppy is diabetic. I'm no expert but I would get it checked out.

i agree too, the vet. if there is nothing wrong.. and only after he goes to the VET... he may have been the runt of the litter and never got his fair share of anything so he figures it's now or never and just takes it all. he may just need a little tlc when he eats or drinks. like petting while he eats or drinks and your soft reassuring voice at the same time. doggy shrinks are the only way to go most times though. but do get him to the vet. tongue.gif

Hes been to the vet two times now... they just said nothings wrong, hes being a normal lab puppy and i also posted this in hunting dogs and i guess this happens sometimes with pups.. they just keep drinking, even as older dogs they do as well, so we just don't keep a bowl full of water now till he gets older and understands he cant drink the whole bowl.. thanks

Well if he's ever going to be a hunting dog, you'd better teach him how to obey. This will be one of those hard ones to teach, but teach him to drink smaller amounts.

Right now when he starts to drink, i say ok thats enough and sits down looking at me.. he walks away and a bit later he goes back and drinks more.. Hes a puppy he has plenty of time to learn to be a hunting dog.. i think right now its the basics for now, sit heel, no ..things like that... he needs to be a puppy first, but your right he does need to learn

and he is now, each day hes learning something new.. its very exciting for us both..

Congrats on your new puppy. Until he realizes that food and water are going to be available on a regular basis, you're probably going to see this behavior. He may be adapted to competition behavior. Hope he realizes theres no other pup around drink at will.

      Fuses are blowing for a reason most likely an undesirable reason. Much better solution to fix the problem than eliminating the fuse. Eventually the sort or item causing the fuse to blow will eventually make it to the wires. Just a thought, although not recommend, there is enough battery current where you can stick weld 11 gage steel with a 12 volt battery. Continued or prolonged welding (same as a short) could cause to battery to explode. Word of caution, led acid batteries are filled with sulfuric acid.

      I agree with del, used boats are more than adequate. I bought a 1990 Crestliner Sport for $5,100 in 2013. Did some floor and live well work, added co-pilot to the trolling motor, Vexilar SonarPhone connected to my iPad, and a tablet with the Navionics Boating App for GPS. Welded verses rivet hull was my desire. Tops out at 43 mph with 115hp merc 2 stroke. Handles the 4' Ottertail waves quite well. Picture of boat on Ottertail which I fish several times yearly along with other Ottertail County lakes and lakes closer to home I frequent often. At 73 its easy to launch / take-out. Look for a family owner, one that uses the boat once or twice a month the boat/motor will have limited hours of use on it. In my opinion the used boat is the only way to go.

      Here's a quote from the MinnKota digital onboard charge manual. "INLINE FUSE The output cord has an inline fuse on the RED end. The fuse serves as protection from surges and short circuits caused by a damaged charger output cable. If a fuse blows, replace it with a 30 amp ATC 32V automotive fuse. Improper battery connections will normally not cause a fuse to blow since this is handled by the internal circuitry of the charger."

      That was my son cooking up my birthday dinner!  I'm older and have more grey hair (a lot more) than dark.  Be sure to say "hello-I'm Del"  if you see me!  Will be back up for a few extra days over Labor Day.

      There was a musky tourney last weekend, at spring bay.  Some club deal.   I think that might have contributed to the issue.   Normally I am one of few boats out on wakemup fishing walleye.   Like count on fingers of one hand.
