      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 .

piddle on the floor...

I just got an 8 yr old german shorthair a few months ago & he was supposed to be fully house trained. He is a very smart & obedient fella....maybe a lil too smart! He will not pee in the house if there is someone inside with him, but if I leave & come back in a couple hours, he will have peed on the rug in front of the door. Its like he is trying to get even with me for leaving him behind! I know that putting him in his crate when I leave would fix the problem, but does anyone else have any other ideas so I dont have to do that? Its tough to try to correct him for something that you cant catch him doing. Thank you,

One of the big things to do is get the smell of his urine off the rug. This won't fix the problem, but it will help. Some dogs urinate in the same place out of habit. Getting the smell out will help solve the problem.

You can buy stuff at pet stores for this.

Thanks Boilerguy,

I did go over the area several times with a rug doctor right after I discovered it. I let him have the run of the house all night after i go to bed & he doesnt bother a bit...its just when I leave him at home for a while. I have been putting him in his crate when I leave (which he doesnt seem to mind), but I just wish there was a way to correct him so I wouldnt have to feel guilty when i have to leave the house without him for a while.

Why do you feel guilty about the crate? As long as you don't make the crate a negative place then he won't mind taking a snooze in it while you are gone. Most dogs sleep a majority of the day anyways so why not let him sleep in his crate?

This is true. The crate is a happy place.

I understand wanting to let your dog cruise around and stretch his legs, but sometimes the crate is the thing to do.

I know what you're saying. I would just feel better if I could let him roam so he can look out the windows or play with his toys or just be somewhat active. I gave him the test again today...I left for about 20 minutes & came home to find pee on the door again, so I guess from now on he will be spending some time in his crate. He is fine with being in there most of the time & naps in there on & off all day anyway. He just whines a lil bit when I first close the door which makes me feel a lil guilty, but I guess thats just the way it'll have to be. Thanks for your input TRITC.

Our 8y/o springer is always in the crate when we are not home. he is 65 lbs and would sleep on the kitchen table when we were gone and the garbage was his playground. Since crating him, all problems gone and he is ok with that. Now we have a 3 month old springer and she has learned real quick that her crate is her friend when we are sleeping and not home.

This is the best stuff for dog mistakes (Nature's Miracle Stain & Odor Remover) You can go over 20 times with carpet cleaner and the scent is still there. My Lab darn near runs through the back of the kennel when I say kennel. Of course he gets a treat. When I get home and let him out he is happy I am happy and for a walk we go...Good luck

      Moose is right. We fish the same area and all those lakes were sketchy with old sheets of ice and lots of open/skim ice. I have not been out this week but vetween my brother and friends i have heard the ice is all getting stronger. Idk if ive ever seen lakes freeze like this. Plus snow everyday makes it scary when u cant see the ice. No mater what dont go alone and just because u see people out there dont mean the ice is good. Lots of circumstanes this year where u have 6 inches in one spot and 5 feet away there is one inch

      Out of the north west part of the lake yesterday, found anywhere from 5-8 inches of ice.  Close to a few pressure ridges there was less than 3 inches.  There are a lot of patches of rough ice and pressure ridges so be careful.  Saw several places where spearer's were set up where they pushed the ice block under the ice and did not mark their holes, please people be cautions.

      Here's the scoop, Buddy Hillmen is now allowing 1/2 ton trucks with single axle wheel houses.. Also any size wheel house pulled by wheeler or side by side. Drive slow there's a bridge plate about a mile out. Do not try and cross berm to the south of road. I have all ready seen a couple tracks where they did not make it through. be safe use commom sense and enjoy such a grand lake. On a side note. Last weekend a small fish house was set up about 200 yards from me. Sunday I was driving by and noticed a plastic bag so I stopped to pick it up. It was pushed down into the augured hole and turned out to be a bag of poop. From now on I will be taking random pics of wheel houses and if I find that kind of crap again I will be reporting to dnr and expect a possible ticket in the mail.

      Some are fishing it.   But the winds kept parts open till Monday.  Be cautious as you go.  Ice thickness really varies.

      I checked ice earlier and there was 2 different ice sheets one was 4” ant that time and the other was 1 1/2”. The 1 1/2” ice was most of the lake. Be very careful on there.

      Most coho being on Minnesota side are 12" - 17".   Occasional bigger fish.  Very few 3# pound fish.

      SM, Nice meeting you today! I am sure we will see each other again! We ended up catching 6 walleyes and 6 tulibees. Kept 3 walleyes from 14" to 19-3/4". We quit at 1:00pm also.
