      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 .

Pooping in kennel

Recommended Posts

I have a 11 month old that is still pooping and peeing in 6 x 10 foot kennel. She has no problem when she is in the crate during hunting trips. But when she is at home and in the kennel when we are at work she poops and pees. Any ideas??? I take her out right away when I get home and she goes where I take her and knows what potty means-but does not wait if she has to go. I will give just about any suggestions a try!Thanks in advance

Is there food and water in the kennel with her? How long are you gone? When do you feed her and how much? What goes in must come out ;\)

Feed in morning and at night, fresh water in morning and at night. I am gone about 9 hrs a day. Give lots of play time before I go to work and after. Maybe she just needs to grow out of it, I dont know. But there are periods when we are hunting that she is in the crate for longer than 9hrs and does not go in the crate??

She is "forced" to hold it in a crate. I would do the same.

In a kennel she has room to relieve herself... I would do the same. Is it a big deal because you need to clean it up? or for other reasons? 9 hours is a long tome to hold it. Figure 9 hours during the day and then again holding it all night... that is probably 16 outta 24 hours where you are expecting her to hold it........

Try cutting out the morning feed and increasing the evening feed. Hopefully she will 'empty' in the morning and make it through the day. After 8 months of age, I feed my labs 3 cups of a HIGH QUALITY food once a day and have done so for my whole life, including growing up. The higher the quality the lesser the amount, the firmer the stool. 40 some years of doing so and I haven't noticed a problem from it yet.

Good Luck!

I totally agree with Labs. The logic behind crate training is the dog would not risk going to the bathroom in its small cozy space. When you place them in a 6x10 foot area, the dog has room to go to the bathroom and not dirty up a sleeping area. It just has too much space. It is nice to give them the extra room, when you're away vs. being in the crate, but if I'm gonna be gone, my boy goes right back in the crate. He still sleeps the whole time and doesn't go to the bathroom in there.

Feedings could help alot. I do exactly what Labs says except with my smaller dog I give 2 cups, evening only.

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?

      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
