      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.

      I haven't ice fished this lake in about 4 years. It had a pretty large scale winter kill a few years back. I am sure it has since rebounded. Lakes like this typically come back pretty quickly following winter kill, especially with the mild winters we have had as of late. Mayhew used to be loaded with smaller perch, and had decent crappie action at times. I too would be curious to know how Mayhew is doing. Wish I could be more help to you.

      Be very cautious on lakes even further north of the Ogilvie area lakes. As of 3 days ago, there was still significant open water on Ripple, Hickory, Big Pine, Cedar, Bay, Farm Island, and numerous other lakes in the Mille Lacs, and Aitken area. Be very cautious, take your time, and test the ice every 10 yards or so, particularly if you get anywhere near anything that would be considered mid lake. Area resorts and bait shops are very reluctant to give advice that would be considered a green light to access even the small lakes. Be safe....

      East access..... only 3.5" - 4"  200 yards out.  .... don't know north acces as I saw enough to  stay off.

      Anyone on here been out on White Bear yet? I've seen a few people out off the Ramsey Beach area where the truck went through the other day but have not had a chance to venture out myself. Normally I hit the Belaire area early ice. Thanks!

      wealthwood had1.5 last weekend, i saw no one out but 1 person on the whole west side last wsat afternoon. thi week the resorts on the north end and east are reporting decent ice. check with the resorts before you go out. id stay away from public accesses now and follow a staked road.
    • MrSchrute
      Have you fished out there before? Is it worth putting some time in on the ice? Thanks-
    • walleyewalby
