      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 .

House Dog Training Question

Recommended Posts

My Lab turned 1 Year a week ago. She has been awesome so far and we couldn't be happier with her.

Two days ago, she went to the bathroom by the door. (Diarrhea)

I scoulded her, smacked her took her straight outside. Then Yesterday she did it again. I scoulded her again and took her outside for a while. Well I got to thinking and the reason that she went by the door is because she was sitting there waiting to go out for so long and couldn't take it anymore and had to go. She is totally housebrocken and when she needs to go out, she goes and sits at the door. The problem is that she doesn't give us any signal like a bark, a whine or a scratch.

I was wondering if you guys have any advise on how to get her to signal that she needs to go out.

A little background info on her is that she is the quietest dog I have ever seen, she does not bark, I have only heard her bark when she was a puppy a few times and when someone is at the door which is very seldom at our house. I can't get her to bark when I play with her or any other time. She is also very emotional and when I scold her, she goes into a deep depression sometimes for hours.

All in all, I just want her to signal somehow. Today, I have had to take her out every hour since I got home from work.

Thanks

If she has diarrhea, she might not have had enough time to warn you. What I did is let my britt out at the same times throughout the day, after a few weeks she would come to me and stare at me until I asked her if she wanted to go out, seemed to work, but when she was sick, she had some accidents also, part of owning a dog. Now if I could only teach her to open the door....

I was thinking the same thing. The diarrhea indicates that the dog is sick. Sometimes when we get sick, we have little warning when we need to get to the bathroom...

I got the opposite problem on barking. I got a real open black and tan hound that barks at anything and sometimes at nothing. When she needs to go out she stands by the door and doesn't make a sound. Just sits there. Took her a good long while to train me. Lol

Thanks for the posts guys,

It was in the same place 2 nights in a row and I am positive that she had been sitting there for a while. It hasn't happened since and I have been letting her out every hour. Great idea on the bell. I will try it and let you know how it works out. I suppose for the first few times I will ring it, then force her to ring it and hopfully it catches on. This spring, I am putting in a fence and I want to put in a dog door but the wife says no. We'll see... For now it's the bell, if anyone else has any neat ideas please let me know,

Thanks for the help!

Tell your wife the fence is to keep kids out of the yard so they don't hurt the dog.

Or

Tell her that if she lets the dog out she can put her in the fence and not worry about the dog running away when your gone.

or

Tell the dog it's to keep the wife out of the house.but close by.

      Wasn't sure, but I found it. looked like  you were cooking something on the grill.

      We were out near Taylors.  Couple boats and us and a pontoon and a pleasure boat cut right between us "sight seeing".  Blows my mind how they cut right between boats that are fairly close to each other fishing an area and cruise right through without a care in the world!  Del, I thought last year you figured out which place I had?

      Fuses are for fire protection. If you're willing to risk a fire in your boat if something goes awry, have at it. Your insurance company would be happy to have a good reason to keep all the premiums you've paid and refuse your claim. Hopefully no one will get injured or die in the fire.

      Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.

      Looking to get on some walleye and crappie this week, looks like mayflies were out in full force last night when I was on the lake. First year fishing this lake, where does a guy start?

      Thank you one and all, especially you Tommy. Some very kind words and ditto to you my friend. "Ace" "It's just fishing man"

      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were
