      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 .

invisible fencing?

Recommended Posts

kooba

I would like to know your thoughts. I have a 10 week old lab and am contemplating on either getting a kennel outside or do invisible fencing where he can go in or out of the garage for him. What are you thoughts on invisible fencing, good or bad? Are there different brands out there that are better than others? I am spending lots of time with him right now, but am looking for something to keep him busy while we are at work. I just want the best for him. PS. I do have somewhat close neighbors also. Any suggestions? thanks. KOOBA

We had it installed in early september for our two dogs and it is unbelievable. They pick up on their "area" real quick and are a LOT calmer at night when you get home. Our two dogs will usually come inside in the evening and they usually go into the family room and fall asleep. I would definetly suggest invisible fencing over a kennel for the dogs.

I don't know about letting him in the garage during the day though. Our one pup is 6 months old and we left the garage open one day and she drug out a few things in the yard and chewed them up pretty good. They will get a little bored without you around and look for stuff to entertain themselves with. But overall it is unreal the difference in them now that they don't have to sit in the kennel all day long. Our one dog has knee/hip problems and I have noticed a big difference in her level of soreness too. Laying on the grass is a lot easier on her then the cement or the wooden benches we have in their kennel.

I read the forum about them but I have a question. I am looking at purchasing the Innotek SD 3000. It has 500' fencing and also comes with a remote trainer for up to 150 yards. The question is how close can they get before they get hit with it? I have a narrow area between my house and the neighbors. I would like to put it through there so she can get to the front yard. I wouldnt want her to get zapped while doing that.

I have an 11 month old lab. Is it to young to start him on invisible fencing? What commands need to be inplace and mastered before you use this? if any? My dog can sit but doesn't fully understand stay yet. Is it ok to use this fencing then or wait untill stay is fully understood? KOOBA

I got one when my pup was about 5 months old and he was fine with it. When you get the fence there is a training process to follow to let your dog know what to do.

It depends on the model. You can set most models very low and they essentially have to get over the fence to set it off. The downside to this is that there is a very small band of boundary to stop them. In other words there is about a 1 foot or less area that will trigger the collar. If they get past that space they are free. If it trips the collar 1 foot before then you have 2 feet with the foot on the other side of the boundary. Make sense?

I have the Innotek Contain and Train system for my 10 month old lab. She's been trained on it for several months now and has gotten 'tickled' a few times...she's to the point where she won't go near the boundary even when she's not wearing the collar. They do learn the boundary fairly quickly if you work with them.

I like the Innotek system. You can adjust how close to the line they can get before they're warned. I also like this system because it comes with a remote so the collar can be used as her hunting collar, too. It was about $200 and well worth it.

Thanks for the replies. That is the same one I am looking at marbleeye. I saw it on a website for $169.99. I think I will order it tonight.

      A boat and trailer are two separate pieces of equipment.  The trailer is titled and the boat isn’t.  You can have one and not the other for any amount of reasons. The wheelhouse is one item and titled, hence the plate.  Shelter tags primary purpose (besides raising money) is to officially verify who is responsible for it.  You can do that with a plate number. Is what it is.  But I’ve just been having more difficulties considering the license fees as just another drop in the bucket.  If ALL the money was used for managing wildlife and habitat I’d have an easier time with it.

      We caught em between 17' and 27' off a shoreline point. Definitely had more action in our shallower holes though.

      Got out today on Niles Bay. We had 4.5" to 6" of good clear ice. Only one walleye between the two of us but the tullibee and whitefish were on a tear. Even got a nice bonus pike! Hoping to dial in the walleyes over the next couple days.

      First ice fishing trip today out of morson ontario .  Fishing  was a little slow got a few walleyes and a couple of crappies . Lost what little  snow we had today made the ice really  slippery. Found 9 to 11 inches of ice.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
