      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Sucks, but the best way that I know of is going to be scraping. Most chemicals that will remove the glue will also effect the finish and integrity of the concrete floor itself and you don't want to do that.

TSP and elbow grease may work.

My first question would be what are you going to be putting back down on the floor?

There are a number of ways to get the old adhesive off the floor.

There are a few products that you can use to remove it or you can scrap it off the floor.

You might want to try "dry ice" on the glue.

I know "tilers" some time use it to remove old tiles/glue.

Freezes/brittles the living you know what out of it and it scrapes off. \:\)

where does a guy get that stuff. and i bet its dangerous and alot of money.

I think we just need to redo it with carpet. This way we dont have to get rid of the glue, can just place it over the top

Look up dry ice in the yellow pages. And on your next trip to Canada you'll know where to go as well \:\)

That stuff is the bomb, a little spendy but once you try dry ice you'll want it for every long distance trip.

When we do this comerical we use a grinder/Sander. You can go to a rental place tell them you are looking for a sander to remove the dried up Glue residue that was left behind from pulling the carpet.

See if you can get one that has a vaccum attachment to it. for it will get very dusty in the air.

If you can't get a sander/grinder with a vaccum attachment, then set up fans and blow the air out a door or window.

This will be alot ezier and alot less costly then putting a thin layer of concrete down.

Which most likely will only chip up later as it gets wear and tear on it

Dry ice is compressed gas and comes in various forms. It's not a hazardous material but will burn you bad if not handled with gloves or scoops. It's manufactured @ -109 degrees so it's darn cold \:\)

You will find a manufacturer/retailer of dry ice in Burnsville.

Just west of the mall on (42) about 2-miles @ the Savage/Burnsville line. Gets pretty spendy (over $1 a lb) after it leaves that place to other retailers of it so thats where to go (.50 lb). I can get a good deal on it seeing I'm connected. ;\)

The sander option mentioned might be the more convenient method.

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!  
    • Nordern
      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.
    • Wanderer
      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.
