      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 .

Besides having a professional come in I don't know what other options you have. And even with that you may not get it all out.......did you search for other cleaning tips?

you might want to try Mr. Clean Magic Eraser's, I believe it was that brand, I used on our carpet when my daughter spilled grape juice on cream carpet with that and resolved I got it out...

I have gotten many stains out using the white can of Chem-Dry spray you can buy in the store. It is the same stuff the pros use. My wife once set a bottle of Old English on the carpet and the cat knocked it over and leaked for quite a while and left a huge spot. I used a can of this and got it all out and that was on a off white, speckled carpet. Worth a try.

Good luck.

The kid loves these things. He had one before and the bulb burnt out and melted the side of it so I threw that away but he wouldn't part with this one. He's done with them now!!!

Try Spot Shot. Its worked for anything that we have gotten on our carpets including red wine and markers. For $3.99 its worth a shot.

Regular rubbing alcohol - I've had great luck with it. Dampen a wash cloth/rag (make sure the rag won't create more of a mess) with it and daub/rub, etc etc.

Good luck

I have used non-chloronated brake parts cleaner on lots of stains around the house. Spray on-rub off. Try on a scrap or in a spot out of the way- had one person tell me it melted the carpet in there car. I use it anywhere I have a stain that I need to get out!!!!!

Definitely try in an inconspicuous place. We had some brake cleaner at the shop that was melting the clear coat on aluminum wheels. After polishing brake dust out of four we switched brands.

      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.

      Dang Curt, did you take my suggestion on a drone?  Great report.

      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
