      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 .

Filling LP

Recommended Posts

BigDaddy

I don't know about you, but I wonder about some of these inexperienced/untrained people filling LP at gas stations. They really struggle sometimes. And they'll always charge me for a full container even though my tank wasn't empty.

I was camping in Michigan and stopped at a LP store. That guy really knew what he was doing and only charged me for what I got (10 lbs topping off a 20 pounder).

Where are the good places in the Metro for LP? NW burbs preferred.

Thx

Funny you bring this topic up as I just got back from a LP search. Local Farm & Home station has a kid working the LP and says a 100# tank is a flat rate as is all tanks there.

$2.39 a lb he says.

Went to the local Co-op (who supplies Farm & Home)and they told me $50 p/u and $70 delivered.

Another just miles north of me wants $85 and wont deliver.

So I guess its a crap shoot in price, knowledge and service.

I do the tank exchange for those reasons. Then again, I just use a 20lb tank. I would shop around if you have a bigger one that you just want filled.

I just bought two new tanks to go on the drop-down house. I'd rather keep my nice shinny new tanks smile.gif

I have my 20-pounder filled by the folks who fill the big tank that heats my house. A refill of the 20 (and the tank was empty) in August was $6 or $7.

You could try Ferrellgas in New Brighton (used to be Suburban Propane).

They are near 35W and 694. Google the name and you will find the web site.

I like Little Bighorn, they are very competitive. 100 lb'er average cost last year was 43.00, 20 lb'er 12-13, 40 lb'er 23-25. Not to mention the customer service excellent. For those interested they are in Coon Rapids. (these numbers based on last spring)

I second Little Bighorn. They are great and I'm proud to support a local small business. I don't know the exact address but they are in Coon Rapids right off of I think Northwest BLvd. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

Little Big Horn is at 1532 Northdale Blvd in Coon Rapids. That's where I like to go also. Take Hwy 10 to Hanson Blvd. Go north about a half a mile to Northdale Blvd. Take a right and Little Big Horn is another mile or so on the right side. It's just a small shop out of a garage and is easy to miss if you're not familiar with it.

BTW quite a few years ago, before the new tanks came out, I took two 20 lb tanks to a gas station to get filled. Well they sure filled them. After we unloaded our things at the shack we noticed a propane smell and heard hissing. The 2 tanks we had filled were leaking propane. The brain surgeon that filled them must have put in enouth to fill a 100 lber. crazy.gif

Bills Suprette in Andover usually fills a 20 lb tank for $10.99. Once again though. 1/2 tank, they try to charge you for a full one. They also have kids filling it up for you.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.

      HooDoo Point, Everett Bay public landing, or the Casino are all good landings if you want to fish Big Bay. The Y-Store or  the Food and Fuel in Tower both have good bait. Cliff

      Anything from moccasin point west can be pretty spotty with Verizon. If you're on big bay it's tough to beat

      I just read an article in the paper recently, that pout fest might be relocated to Lake Bemidji in 2018. It never gave a reason why though. Anyone know anything?
