      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 .

Deitz,

Do you use this formula yourself? If so, where do you get the non-scent shampoo?

Thanks,

Mysterio

they had the same formula in field and stream except they used 1/2 cup baking soda. You should be able to find no-scent shampoo at any outdoors store, i know i have seen it at Gander Mountain.

yes I use this stuff, like its going out of style... Believe it or not.. I use it on my gym shoes, we use it when one of our cats pees on the carpet.. its ike magic!... I will give you one hint.. try and get the baking powder to disolve in the water first before you add the peroxide and the soap. And when you let the stuff sit, be sure to not put a cap on it... I then just put it in a spray bottle.

Well I can make a gallon of the stuff for about $2.50 and I go thought about 12 spray bottles of this a year by letting my dad and brother and friends use it when we go in the wood and They love the stuff and I also swear by it so it probally saves me about $80 a year. Last year I spent about $15 to make it and I made like I said about 12 bottles (or more. Figure that if You buy the stuff it is $8 per bottle (just a guess) That is $96 I would have spent. Plus this way you to not get skimpy with it and spray down good with it.

Well, Distilled water may cost you $1 a gallon?.. maybe a little more.. peroxide, maybe another $1... The baking soda I always just have laying around the house anyway, same as no scent shampoo.. and I have always felt scent killer was very expensive... so I didn't use very much to save money.. Now I figure I can make a gallon of it for like what?... $3... I think you are saving a ton... and if mixing 4 ingredients is trouble... then buy the stuff...I figgure it took me about 5 mins to mix it up?

Thanks Guys.

I have an R/O(reverse osmosis)system in my house.Do you think the water from this would substitute for distilled?

Dehumidifier water works in place of distilled water. I used hydrogen peroxide that came from a liquid non clorinated shock for pools and hot tubs. I read the stuff in the brown bottles has something else in it that can reduce it's effectiveness. I used the green liquid body soap instead of laundry soap and it bubbled up quite a bit. The green stuff has an active ingredient that inhibits bacteria growth.

The recipe I saw is:

1 quart distilled H20

1 quart 3% H10

1 oz. liquid scent free laundry soap

1/4 cup baking soda

baking soda 2 for a buck

peroxide 2 for a buck

distilled water 1 gallon a buck

sent free laundry soap 6.53 bucks

mix time 5-7 min

Is the baking soda suppose to clump up after it sits a couple of days or should I add more distilled 02. I stirred it up and it seamed to disolve again I'll check it in a day or two, to see what its like. I follow the directions to a tee, except doubling it

      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.

      Big Marine had 8" at the north access out to the weeds before the main lake.  Lots of walkers, a number of wheelers.  5 inches past the weeds above the ice before the island.   Access was crazy...very inconsiderate people tripple parking, a guy I was with got parked in, trucks behind and in front of him.  Luckily I was parked beside him and was able to move enough that he could get his truck out.   Fishing was very slow.  Couple panfish, a bass and snake northern.

      I'm definitely itching to get on the river.

      I was out on Hiniker Pond last night. Had no luck with fish but I was after dark. Straight out from the pier about 30 yards you got a solid 3.75 to 4 inches. Duck lake has about 5 inches. Henry had 4 inches last week. Not sure about this week.

        Doc was up there with a couple of his boys on Thursday fishing out of portables.  He gave me a call when he was on the ice.  I said, “. Let me guess what you got on”.  Red stripe Demon with a female fat head hooked through the pooper hole on the dead stick and a purple smelt rattling flyer with a minnow head on the other pole.  I nailed it.  He still uses a jiggle stick for his dead stick.  He had to sign off as a fish came in on the Vex.  Put it in the bucket Shaky.
