      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 .

Slush Inhaler!

Recommended Posts

Dahitman44

Do any of you guys use this thing?

I just bough one yesterday. I got one a couple of years ago for x-mas but it was stolen out of my house before I could use it.

That figures.

I thought with all of the ice and having almost two buckets per hole it would be worth it.

In the words of the late Tony the Tiger, THEY'RE GRRRRRRRRREAT! A friend of mine has one and it really is easy to use and does a good job. Dip it in, pull it out and on to the next hole. I told another frind of mine we should just make one out of thin aluminum stove pipe. It sounded like an easy enough plan whilest we sat at the bar and solved worldy issues. Still haven't made one.

The inhaler works great if you have alot of holes to clean. We have one in our 10 holer and it speeds the set-up. Ive been told that if you rivet some thin rubber around the edge of the flappers you can increase the efficency but I havent tried it yet.

Yes they do work great. They also make a product called the catch cover slush bucket that goes on the floor over your holes, so when you are drilling inside your house it collects the ice and keeps your floor dry. They run around $50. This is the first year I have used one and the two products working together saves you a lot of time.

Thats good to hear cuz I JUST BOUGHT ONE YESTERDAY AS WELL. However the guy at Fleet Farm said they got many many complaints cuz they always seem to break. But hopefully these posts are more reliable cuz it was almost $50..... Hope he was wrong...

I have one too. I have used it for about 4 years and no problems. Works best in the perm house because its kind of big to lug with in the portable.

I got one for the perm house. It works great. i did a couple modifications. First I added a longer strip of wood across the top of the handle to prevent it from falling down the hole which I thought the factory should of done. But then that would take away some of their repeat customers. And I duct taped around the bigger holes next to the rods and also around the rim inside. I get alot more of the ice that floats around the hole after its mostly slushed out. Again, they work great inside the bigger houses. I just slush out into a 5 gallon pail and dump that outside when im done.

I need to get one of those for my permanent but I'd like to try one first. I'm sure I'll run into one one day.

You know he didnt really say where they broke but he kind of eluded to the moving part. But I think he just wanted to make excuses of why they didnt have any in. It was actually at scheels, I earlier stated it was Fleet Farm

      I seen in the  paper it will be at Leech lake again this year.

      I was worried about the wire size too. Thanks ProV. I guess I can’t avoid it. 
    • fishingstar
      you don't have any wires on your 7 pin plug that is heavy enough.  
    • PRO-V
      I would run wire straight to the battery with an in line fuse at the battery and use a separate 2 prong connector at the trailer.

      Unfortunately they have not found them yet. Freeze up  with the thin ice has really hampered the search. Too much ice for boats and not enough to travel on. As the ice thickens the searchers are working their way deeper. Such a sad situation.
    • KidMoe
      I’m hoping I can get some advice from you fine folks. I’m looking to install a small electric winch on my snowmobile trailer to load my skid house. I’m wondering if I can power it off the 7 pin connector?  From what I can find, my truck is fused at 10 amp and most of the winches I’m finding pull somewhere around 50 to 60 amps at 1500 lbs or so. I’m wondering what I could do to still run it off the 7 pin. Do I need to add a battery? Maybe a capacitor? i appreciate any thoughts you might have!

      I spotted them also this evening out from McKinley. A few more days yet before I will give it a try! Cliff

      First fisherman seen trying their luck today out from McKinley park access and Stuntz Bay access.

      Definitely not surprised with this change. One might as well license the wheel house anyway.  Keeping it legally “occupied” is a pain just to avoid buying the license.

      A public meeting to discuss a draft transition plan for Hill Annex Mine State Park will take place Thursday, Nov. 30, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Calumet City Hall, 932 Gary St., Calumet. Legislation in 2017 guided five local partners (DNR, Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Board, Itasca County, City of Calumet and the Western Mesabi Mine Planning Board) to work on an alternate operating model for local management and operation of the Hill Annex Mine. The work group has concluded that operation of the site as a park under any jurisdiction is extremely unlikely and is proposing a feasibility study to explore other local economic development opportunities that preserve the history of Hill Annex Mine, promote existing amenities along the Mesabi Trail, and better connect the cities of Calumet and Marble. At the public meeting, the work group will hold a facilitated discussion to review feedback on the draft project report. The report will be submitted to the 2018 Legislature. Interested members of the public are welcome to attend and participate in the discussion. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
