      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 .

Looking for training collar

Recommended Posts

I added a second dog to the arsenal this year and I am now looking for a two dog training collar system. Some of the features I want included are the following:

-Two collars

-Two transmitters with the ability to use one transmitter with both collars

-1000+ yard range

-Pulse and continuous stimulation

-Five or more levels of stimulation

-No external antennaes for either the collar or the transmitters

-Advanced battery technology (hopefully Lithium Ion but NMhd is ok)

Can anyone recommend a make and model that they personally have experience with?

Thanks,

WG

Tritronics, Dogtra, and DT Systems all have collars that are at least close to your requirements. Most of the pro trainers I know of use one of these brands. Don't forget about waterproof collar and transmitter too.

I appreciate the information.

I have done some extensive research and I realize all the major manufacturers make collars with these features. I was hoping to hear from someone who has had a particularly good experience on a specific model in a two dog setting with the features I outlined above.

I have owned a Tritronics collar for seven years and frankly it has been ok at best. The reliability has been suspect and it has been back to the factory for repair twice. In both cases you couldn't turn the collar on and it wasn't a battery issue.

E-

I just ordered the Dogtra 1702NCP on Tuesday-- I checked out all the brands over the past couple months and played around with them and the 1700 really stood out as the best in my mind. It has the cool new lighted LED display with readout of the power setting(127 different power levels), it has a battery life indictator(red,yellow, and green lights), but the kicker was that it has two sets of buttons for the two collars. So instead of having to search out the toggle switch, they are right in front of you. There is a toggle, but only between nick and constant. It has the pager function which I loved and used 98% of the time on my Dogtra 1200 NCP. On top of all that, Rocky could have matching collars with his mom grin.gif Is he going to be ready for pheasant opener?

Bushwacker,

How is your young pup doing? Is he all ready for this fall? Mine is doing great. We are running both the certified and advanced APLA test in Iowa, and eagerly awaiting the fall.

Franky is definitely ready for this fall. He is chomping at the bit. I could not be happier with him, he goes 110% all of the time so my only challenge will be harnessing that energy in a goose blind. I should really run him in the APLA's too. He was at David's for a couple months and is doing really well since coming back. So far he points 100% of the time on planted birds and a couple wild hens we've ran into too, so I think he would do pretty well in the tests. When are the tests? I have never even been to one so I am thinking about just going down to watch one. Take care-

M,

Rocky should be ready for the opener. He is a bundle of energy and is pointing birds. Following Rebel around should be as good of a teaching mechanism as I can get. I am pumped for both bird hunting and bow hunting. I need to find a job wher I can take off from Septmeber until March! We need to plan to get together this fall.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.
    • mrpike1973
      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.

      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!

      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"
