      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 .

LP Issues

Last year I had trouble keeping my heater going because it was -35 degrees and the LP wouldn't flow. Does anybody have a good way to keep the tank warmer? I was thinking a heat tape but then I would have to run my generator all night. Not good.

You could throw a couple batteries in the house and run the heating coils off of them overnight and during the day off the generator. While the generator is on you could also charge the batteries.

I was running 20# tanks. I can't remember what BTU my heater is. I only have trouble when Red gets down to the 30-40 below mark.

one 30# tank would help. you need more pressure @ 30-40 below. I run 100# with 20,000btu heater, gas lights and oven no trouble at 42 below on lake of the woods in my wheel house

I know it's not very smart, but I have kept the tank inside the house when it gets real cold. Again you obviously don't want it anywhere near a heat source but it works well. Make sure it doesn't leak either. Otherwise you'll be burbot bait. shocked.gif

First make sure your tank is as full as possible whenever you will be fishing. LP wont vaporize when it reaches -44 and alot of this depends on tank volume. The fuller the tank the more the liquid boils and this keeps it from freezing. Second a good insulated blanket wrapped around the tank will keep the temp of the LP up and eliminate the wind factor. Last and still the easiest is dump boiling water on your tank. This will raise the temp of the LP ever so slightly but enough to get it boiling again.

Happy Fishing!

Hey rat i was implying you do this before you have any problems. I thought this was a site where people helped each other with fishing tips reports etc, not a site where people like to be a wise guy.

Relax Stewie, this is the Upper Red Lake forum, we really do have more fun here. wink.gif You will notice lots of wise cracking and ribbing in both directions all in good humor. Red lake is a different crowd then most lakes and you will see that on these pages loud and clear.

I thought it was funny, not as funny as the fellow that couldn't figure out how to flush the outhouse but funny.

Jon, you're a very strange person. I like you.

As for the thawing things out routine, we once had a fish house stove that needed the combustion chamber heated up before it would work. We warmed it useing a propane torch with one pound bottles. Once, well below zero, the torch wouldn't light so I had to put the bottle under my coat and shirt, against my stomach to warm it. Now that gets your attention really fast. shocked.gif

Speaking of LP issues, I've got one for you...

This past summer someone came through the storage yard my wheelhouse was located at and cut the lp line and walked away with my dual 2-stage reglator setup and both 30lb tanks. The part that really stings is I found out when I returned to chain them up! A day late -- $250 short.

I already picked up two new tanks, but I had to order the lp lines and assemblies on line from a sponsor. I hope everything arrives by Wednesday, cause I am heading up to URL on Thursday.

BTW Stewie, forgive River Rat...he is a bass fisherman. J/K River Rat, I know what Charlie got you for Christmas!

Maybe I will see some of you up there next week...that is if I get my lp lines. Heading up on Thursday and staying through Sunday or Monday.

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
