      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 .

Recommended Posts

I have called the brooklyn park and lakeville fleetfarms and can't locate the di-calcium phosphate. Any suggestions on where to find this stuff in the Brooklyn Park area or is this phosphate called something else? Any help would be appreciated. Heading nort this evening.

Thanks,

Dustin

I was in tke Lakeville Fleet last night, and saw some on the shelf. Is is way in the back, in the farm mineral/ softener salt area.

I'd just go into the store and search for it yourself. It is in a white bag.

If you cant find it in Fleet, any small town feed store should have it.

I made the recipe and dad just called and said that he went to the stands today and he saw two does at his already. We put them out 2 weeks ago and after 2 days they were tearing two of them up and now the 3rd one is seeing some action.

I picked up my material at the local co-op store. They were well aware of the recipe and got all the stuff for me! grin.gif

Went nort to the hunting land, set up some mineral sites saturday morning. Checked them on sunday and were already getting hit smile.gif

Got all supplies at Fleet Farm Lakeville.

200lbs is a lot of mineral for the price and love what I am seeing so far.

??? about amount to use... is more better? Obviously 200lbs is a bit much for 1 site. Just wondering how much people use on one location. Plus I've heard old stumps are a good place to apply minerals as well.

Off of the 200lbs that we made, we had 4 mineral sites set up. Good luck.

Another question about the di-calcium phosphate. I saw bags at fleet that said di-calcium phosphate, but it said 18.5% below that. There were other minerals mixed with it.

Is this the stuff I need?

      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.

      Thanks for the reply. Ya, McNally's gets pounded right away. I looked at the ice in front of Schafer's in Onalaska yesterday; there was about 3.5" of ice near the docks, and then it got thinner in a hurry. Apparently someone got wet feet there earlier in the day.  I ended up at Lawrence Lake Marina just north of Brownsville yesterday. There was probably 4" of good clear ice, much better than what I found in  La Crosse. Will post pictures later, but I got one nice largemouth on a tip up at the Marina, one 10" perch, and a couple small perch.  Today I drove around Winona, and fished the backwater pond east of Latsch Island on the west side of the road. The ice there was...not real good.  I stuck close to shore on 3" of not-real-clear ice after my spud bar saved me from a cold bath a little farther out.  I caught a few small perch there, and a bunch of small bluegills. Nothing worth keeping, and nothing on the tip-up. Was expecting the ice to be a little better than what I found, but what do you do?

      Westwind, Roger's and JR's that I know of. Not sure of the cost.

      Roughly 11inches... there were a few brave people who drove mini vans out

      @leech~~ There was all of 10 inches where I was but I’d say it was a tick more.
