      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 .

gundoghousedoor and you know how to do the rest to get to their site. Not steel but guaranteed chew proof. Have had a pair of these for close to ten years now and no problems.

K-9 Kondo sells a all steel door. Benn using them for over 10 years and they have been fantastic. I use the barrel house in conjunction to their door, but you can order the door seperate. I like how you can keep them open in the summertime.

Good Luck!

Used heavy aluminum sheet (simular to cookie sheet only a little heaver) just a little larger than the dog door opening, bent opening edge a couple inches and at a 45 degree and for hinges I used spring screen door hinges that are the adjustable tension type. Put a small block of wood to hold door open a little until the dogs get used to going in and out then remove the wood block. Dogs open and close these doors easily and doors are now 6 or 7 years old with no chew problems.

Labs-

I have a K9 Kondo and love it, but my 5 month old lab wont go in it if the door is down. I have put treats in the far back of the barrel and also put peanut butter on the screw off caps to get her to go in. She will go in then, but will always keep a leg outside so the door doesn't close all of the way. The other night, I put her in the kennel for the night with the door down and hoped she would eventually just go inside, but at 2 AM I decided to sneak a peek at her and she was laying on the cement outside of the house. She sleeps in the K9 Kondo just fine with the door open. I'm just a little worried with the colder temps coming soon. I also put hay inside for her.

Any tricks to get her used to going in and out with the door down?

I have the same problem with a 2 year old dog that I have right now. She will go in when I command 'kennel' (sometimes needs a little push to get her going) and will come back out no problem, she will go in when the door is open... I figure when she gets cold enough she will go in. I just make her go in at least once a day in front of me so I know she understands she can go in there. My older dogs go in and out all day long since they were little pups and never showed any hesitancy towards the door.

If it continues to get cold and she is not using it, I will 'kennel' her in there at night and use the rod to pin the door shut so she sleeps in there... that should be all she needs to get her over the top.

Good Luck!

Ken

Tink,

Could you post some pictures of this. I'm betting it's just as good and under $100. Thanks

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.

      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.

      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.

      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.

      Can anyone recommend a place nearby the Metro Area where a person can take their air rifle to sight in the scope since you cannot shoot them in city limits.  Plus, probably not smart to just pull up to a random field to sight in, either.  Thanks!!

      Went out early Sunday on smaller lake before the Vikes game...5" of good ice and it was growling so making more before it warmed up. Caught a bunch...pic of the dozen crappies we kept...but it was fast and furious from 7-9am

      Happy thanksgiving Cookie to you and your family!!!  Glad to see you made it through the summer and are getting ready for the long winter on such a Grand Lake!
    • cookie129
      well we finally got our home computer back so it sure is nice to be able to type again instead of using the phone.
      The wind were wicked Monday night but by the looks of it this side of the lake held together so that's real good news.
      Lonnie and his buddy braved the winds yesterday and headed out ,they managed to get 7 of there 8 but it was a tougher bite then last time they were here on Saturday.
      This weekend is going to be crazy up here as I have had quite a few inquirers about lodging on shore. Buddy Hillmen may have something but he is tough to get a hold of as he is busy building that mammoth house.
      We ran into a hiccup on blue thunder and have a part we can not get off to replace. I'm hoping Tom can come over and button it up. as Devon worked his butt off to get er done. You could see the disappointment in his eyes, Blue thunder is my work horse and I'm feeling the pressure of getting her up and running..
      Our new used lake truck may show up sunday if all goes well. Its name is Cheyanne "I think that's spelled right. It blew a radiator in fargo and is arriving on a trailer .
      Old Minnesota is the only house that I have not detailed as I also had some major work on her that was ignored while I was trying to break 80 at the golf course this summer. Every one have a great thanksgiving and if your coming up here make sure you check in the resort your going out of as they have been on the ice everyday

      I've got 6- 8" on my home lake. I've heard reports of 3" on Eastern side of Fish Lake from High Banks Resort-Blue Max.
