      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 .

Ok, so this will be a venting and not really a report. I had my ice auger stolen in the parking lot of WalMart today. Yep, I'm ticked. I do understand that I'm too trusting (stupid) when it comes to leaving things is my truck. Guess with the price of heating the home this winter, I may be done ice fishing for the year. Oh, by the way, if you're reading this and you took my auger, call me. I have the extension and cover for the blades in my garage. You will need them more than I do now.

Just once I'd like to catch somebody pissing with somebody elses stuff and catch them by surprise. I'd take out all the penned up frustration I have over all the crap I've had pissed with. I've had two doors ripped off my fish houses, I never have anything in there so I just quit locking the door. Sometimes I've got my auger in my pickup at work, I should probably watch that.

WalMart said I had to call the police and their security department would work with the police. I reported it and the officer went inside. I had to go back to work, but he called an hour later and said they have the video where a car pulls up to my Ranger and pulls the auger from it. (Small station wagon,dark in color possibly blue or green, maybe a Ford Escort with the front license plate not centered. The guy goes into the store but they don't get a good enough shot of him to really ID him.) The officer called last night and said that is very little to go on. He suggested I call around to pawn shops and contact my insurance company. So, at this point, it doesn't look good for recovery, but who knows. He may call, with the cold coming this week, he may need that auger extension!

To bad a guy couldn't get a snap shot of the vehicle by your truck,from the vid., then put it on a flyer with some other info. and hang them all around town, plus when out on the lake, hand them out to some folks out fishing.

Can you try getting a copy of the tape? I would bring it to your favorite computer geek and see if he or she can enhance it and try to get a number.

Today, any HS kid can do it.

No, WalMart will only let the police department view the tapes. I think the police probably have better things to do than run errands for me. But, hey, as long as I'm here can I whine some more? Found out today that I have a $500 decuctable on my insurance. Not much good for a $450 auger. And, as if I need more to complain about, My Big Buddy heater, like everyone else's, doesn't work properly. I went to L&M Fleet to see what could be done. They said Mr. Heater has acknowledged a problem and had given them an 800 number for us to call and make arrangements to send it in for repairs. Called the number and the lady informs me that as of Monday they are no longer taking them. They have found a bigger problem that makes them dangerous to use. If you have one, you should not use it until they figure out what to do next. They are working with some government agency deciding whether they can fix the things or if they should be totally recalled. If you have one of these things, you should call the 800 number. They will be putting notices in the paper and on the news but if you call them, they will get some information from you and contact you personally. The decision will be made about February 1st. It's ok that my new fangled, state of the art, EXPENSIVE, heater is a paper weight cause I can't drill any holes anyway!

The number for Mr Heater is 1-800-251-0001.

First, it is the "Big Buddy" only. Model numberMH18B. It won't run on high heat. It has something to do with the gas pressure messed up and gas not being lit but coming out of the unit when running. Gotta admit, I was in a bit of a daze (thinking,"hummmm, just another $150.00 well spent on my part) while she's explaining this to me. Best to call if you have one of these.

I had one of these as well, but recieved it broken from Cabelas and returned it a couple days before this mess came about, what luck!!! I heard that when run on high, the gas lines would freeze and not let the gas burn and ultimately leak out elswhere. I've also heard that the pilot light always went out. Maybe I'll wait and get one in a year or two after they fix the kinks.

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!
    • mtheis
      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
