      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 .

Minnewaska garbage

Recommended Posts

spear foot 1

I was out on minnewaska on sunday and went out of the Dnr access. We first headed straight out to the flats where the string of houses are. On the way out there we noticed little trails of bottle caps,chip bags, empty pop and beer bottles. We picked some up but pretty soon we were tired of it and gave up and ran out of room in our buckets. Later on on the way back I picked up a pizza box and a couple more green beer bottles. May be it was the wind confused.gif maybe the lake is to rough and the stuff bounces out confused.gif. Any way yes once in a while a bottle cap or wax worm container gets away from me to when its windy or falls out of my pocket. But with all the people out there you would think a little more would get picked up when they see it laying on the ice. It's only a few out of a few out hundrerd out there. But those few make the rest look bad. Sorry for all the blah, blah. But I feel I had to get it off of my chest. grin.gif

spear foot. thanks for doing your part. i'm sure many share the frustration. but one by one we can all make an impression on the bad seeds.

i carry a plastic grocery bag in my arctic armor coat pocket. you can wad them up to the size of a computer mouse or less. doesn't take up much room. handy to have when picking up scattered litter. keeps the buckets tidy too.

Yeah, unfortunately the hard water provides another way for litterbugs to use and abuse our "natural" resources. Like Ghoiterman said, we all can do our part to clean up. The other thing that we can do is put the DNR tip line into our cell phones and call when see these things going on. 1-800-652-9093

Cigarette butts are the worse, for there is so many of them.

Smokers pitch these out of cars, boats, fish houses and think nothing of it. And they don't decompose for years and years.

Now with the smoking bans, I think the outdoors will suffer more from these slobs.

Hate to be mean, but anyone that pitches their trash are just that, slobs. Of course, many smokers are not and clean up after themselves.

cig butts, i tell people i fish with no butts in/on lake. tell them to bring soup can or throw them into a pop bottle or pop/beer can. if i see someone doing other wise i strongly voice my anger towards there inconciderate behavior.

      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.

      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.
