      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 .

Fish House Vents

Recommended Posts

Fat Rap guy

I'm just finishing a fish house and was wondering how much ventilation I should give it. It's 5 by 8 and is sealed up pretty good.

Have a 7x10 all aluminum made by Klave's in Walker, MN. It has a 3 inch round vent in each end of it up at the roof edge.

Depends on the heating system. I use a Mr.Heater with the low oxygen shut off and it says it needs 9 square inches of ventilation so I would make that the minimum.

My house is 8x10 and here's what I did.

I bought two feet of 3 inch pvc, two 3 inch caps,and two dryer vent caps (the ones that attach to the outside of your house) from menards. First I pulled the flappers out of the dryer vents, then I wrapped some old window screen around the end of the pvc and duct taped it down so that one end of the pvc is covered with screen and wrapped with enough tape to make a snug fit in the dryer vent. Now, because the ice was so late and my wife would let me go fishing, I took the pvc caps and cut the ends off so that I had a sleeve that would fit over the end of the pvc pipe that comes out of the wall. Then I cut a notch in the caps about halfway through and stuck the flappers from step one into the notch. Now I can slip the cap over the end and slide the flapper in and out to adjust the ventilation.

Do you think maybe I have too much time on my hands?

I,m presently building a new 2 man portable and to vent it I bought 1/4 inch plastic J mold at the builders supply.
Then I cut a 6"x6" hole in the wall on each end. I cut a piece of luan 1/4" plywood 7"x7" and drilled a small finger hole near one end. Then I cut 2 - 14" pieces of J mold for the sides and 1 -9" piece for the end. I fastened these pieces in a U shape around the vent hole allowing enough room for the luan to slide back and forth without binding and slid the panel into the U. By sliding the panel back and forth you can adjust the amount of vent that you have or close it off all of the way. I'm making window "shades" for over the plex windows the same way.
Hope that someone can use the idea.
Good fishin...

Enids Hubby, do the Mr. Heater's actually have a low oxygen shut off or are you referring to the no heat shut off thermocouple?

Sorry, of the subject a bit but to ask for clarification.

      Thanks to all those who came out yesterday and it was great to see you all. I had fun catching fish and chatting. I will put another one together later in the year.

      Had another good weekend of fishing.  Fished Thursday evening to Saturday afternoon and found consistent action all hours of the day.  Caught 5 slotters 22-25", and was able to be picky on eaters, only keeping 15-17" walleyes.  Plenty of small eyes also, plus I caught 4 eelpout. I did learn a lesson on how to take eelpout off of the hook.  I tried to lift a 20" pout out of the hole by line and the hook pulled out and embedded the bobber in my styrofoam ceiling.  The next time I used the fish pliers to lift the slimy fish out. Had 10" of ice where I was, and a lot of large wheelhouses were being pulled out there.  Yesterday someone drove a Jeep out to a wheelhouse close by.  I think we will see a lot more vehicles driving out in the next week.  Fortunately the added weight hasn't pushed much water on top of the ice.

      I think the fourm would still be pretty strong....however when they split the fourm sites up & stuff and changed some things a few years ago it pretty much killed this site. Traffic is a crawl.....they blame it on new media like Facebook and other stuff......which is an excuse.....poor one at that.......the other ice fishing website I go to is stronger then ever.......This use to be my favorite site, today it's in sad shape & I only come because I remember what it once was hoping that it gets back to it someday.
