      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 did it on Red about 6 years ago. Make sure the truck will start incase of an emergency. We were under the impression the fish stopped biting on LOW after dark so we went for the all night crappie bite on Red. Lots of fun but be prepared.

I can't stress enough about having enough propane! My buddy took his clam sleeper out there 4 yrs ago in February when it was 20 below. Despite them catching over 200 eyes and saugers for the 3 days, he said it wasn't worth it. He had a 28,000 btu Mr. Heater on a 20 lb tank and even with that thing crankin, the nightimes got cold. When the tank ran out, they left. Both had frostbite on their ears and fingers.

This time of year u should be fine thou, the nightimes will get chilly, especially with a big buddy in a 6800, but as long as u have a good sleeping bag, you'll be fine.

It sounds like your telling the story of my buddy and I?? Identical. I grew up in Maple Grove and fish in a clam sleeper up there. We have slept in it a couple times but it wasn't very pleasant. We left the heater off in fear of carbon manoxide poisoning and I didn't have a very good sleeping bag. When I woke up I couldn't operate my hands. Luckily my buddy had a good sleeping bag and was able to get the heater going again. It was worth it though we landed over 200 fish in a 2 and half days. If a guy had a heater with a pilot light and thermocouple on it I wouldn't worry about running the heater all night but if your using a sunflower style make sure and keep a door cracked open.

I've been thinking about doing this for quite some time now. How about lining the inside of your portable with those tinfoil looking space blankets. Maybe just sow them together. It would defintly reflect the heat back. Just an Idea. confused.gif

No big deal. We do it every year. We fish out of the fishtraps, and sleep in the sleepers. In fact, going up on the 27th, and staying completlty portable. We just leave the trucks on shore, and venture out with all gear on wheelers and set up our base camp in the shallows for the late biting hawgs, and venture out in the day with the small houses. This will be our 3rd year doing that on LOW.
