      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 .

Maybe you could try Fleet Farm they sell them in 4 packs for about 8 bucks. The way they are displayed you could load the cart full. Or go with a bigger tank. Hope this helps.

I use a 5# tank for my heater and grill, and carry 2 1#ers for my lantern, single mantle lantern. I wish I had gone with an 11# pancake tank though

I bought a case (24?) of them at Menards this summer for $2 per can. Great deal. I wish I would have bought more. I know you can get them there in 24 can cases. Good luck.

I fill my own with a 20lb cylinder. get the adaptor from a fleet store.

the 20 lb cylinder should be somewhat full and warm.

put the green cannisters in the freezer for 20 minutes, tip your 20lb upside down with the adapter. take out the little one connect it and turn on your 20lber for about 20 seconds. turn off, and unscrew your little canister.

works great.

South Metro, that's a lot of work and depending on price, may not be cost effective. If you go through that many of them, I'd get a larger tank to run your stuff off of.

I would agree and just run your appliances off a big tank. So much cheaper.

I would try Fleet Farm first and or maybe call the stores and see if they can sell them to you in bulk.

It is not illegal to refill and use the little 1# tanks. But it is illegal to transport a refilled disposable 1# tanks according to the (Contact Us Please).

I was going to buy the adapter and refill tanks but have decided that it is not worth getting fined.

i too have refilled the 1 pounders, but not since one got too full and nearly burnt down my portable with me in it. the bottle developed too much pressure after awhile from warming up and my small sunflower became a blow torch. shocked.gif no good!

South Metro. Buy yourself an adaptor and get a 20 pound tank. You can then just exchange the empty for a full one every time you need a new fill up. I pay from $15:00 to $20 00 for a 20 pound tank each time I need a new one and I go though about 2 tanks a year with my Mr. Heater. The adaptor will cost you about $20.00 at Fleet Farm.

There are cheaper ways to go but those 1# canisters sure are nice, easy and LIGHT. Except for my lantern, I can use either 1# canisters or 20#. Most of the time I'll use a 1# er and will usually get me thru my 2-4 hrs of fishing; always have a couple more in the fish trap just in case

      I'll also be up this weekend. Fishing Friday and Saturday and putting the boat away on Sunday. Where are people finding the eyes and what are they biting on? Jigs, rigs, slip bobers? I don't do led core or jigging raps. I'll be on Daisy Bay, so any place from Big to Frazer is in play. Thanks!

      I went hunting with river rat this morning. I got two drake woodies and Chris got one. Finn was being a pain in the butt and would not fetch Chris’s duck. Finn however fetched both of my ducks. Finn flushed a bunch of woodcocks on our walk out. Finn got muddy today

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though
