      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 .

Had a mishap this past weekend involving a dog and my camera cord and it's now in two pieces. Has anyone had to make a repair on theirs? I can splice it back together but am wondering what to wrap/seal it with to keep it waterproof. I emailed Nature Vision but haven't heard back yet. It's always something with me I tell ya. Any ideas?

Heat shrink tube will provide a good tight waterproof seal. Just remember to slip a piece on before starting to repair the slices. If you have enough length on the cord, stagger the connections so you don't end up with a big lump in one spot. I'd solder everything, then individually wrap each connection to avoid any contact inside the final heatshrink.

Yeah I don't know if I'll have enough cord to work with. He chewed it off 5" above the camera itself but I'll try... Any other options?

I had a post about this a couple weeks ago. I just did the follow up to it and I was slow on the reply. The cord was easy to splice, since it broke near the camera I cut the cord then I took apart the camera and spliced it inside. It has 5 wires that are color coded. I got power back but, I also had water in the lens and corrosion on the circuit boards. I have power back to the lens but a damaged board so no video.

Try to use the heatshrink that has the "glue" inside to seal everything up. Regular shrinkwrap may not give a good enough waterproof seal and or support.

I'll give Nature Vision another day... I was hoping to have it up and running for the weekend. Otherwise I'll get some glue-lined heatshrink and see what type of repair I can make tomorrow night. Thanks for everyone's advice.

Just wanted to follow up in case anyone else runs into a similar issue... Nature Vision called me back and told me they didn't take repairs and that I could pretty much try anything I wanted since the camera was now junk. They could ship me a new camera and cord for $100 + shipping. So I elected to make the repair myself. It wasn't the easiest fix but I got her going again. I tried getting into the circuitry but couldn't get the seal open? Not sure how you did you this Mike? It was epoxied pretty solid. So I slid on some 3/16 shrink tubing, spliced the 5 wires at the break and somehow managed to get the tubing over the spliced area and heated it up. Sealed it with a few coats of liquid electrical tape and tested it out last night. Works great once again and just in time for the weekend!

I thought the show MacGyver was off the air laugh.gif. I hope it works for you. If you ever have problems with your dishwasher an Aquaview is a great tool to see what is going wrong. Found the upper impeller was not spinning. Once that was replaced the dishes came out cleaner.

I hope my dishwasher doesn't go down, but that's good thinking!

Shoot!! Just bought a new dishwasher. I could have swung an AquaView first, to make sure the dishwasher was 18 years old.... grin.gif

      I was worried about the wire size too. Thanks ProV. I guess I can’t avoid it. 
    • fishingstar
      you don't have any wires on your 7 pin plug that is heavy enough.  
    • PRO-V
      I would run wire straight to the battery with an in line fuse at the battery and use a separate 2 prong connector at the trailer.

      Unfortunately they have not found them yet. Freeze up  with the thin ice has really hampered the search. Too much ice for boats and not enough to travel on. As the ice thickens the searchers are working their way deeper. Such a sad situation.

      I’m hoping I can get some advice from you fine folks. I’m looking to install a small electric winch on my snowmobile trailer to load my skid house. I’m wondering if I can power it off the 7 pin connector?  From what I can find, my truck is fused at 10 amp and most of the winches I’m finding pull somewhere around 50 to 60 amps at 1500 lbs or so. I’m wondering what I could do to still run it off the 7 pin. Do I need to add a battery? Maybe a capacitor? i appreciate any thoughts you might have!

      I spotted them also this evening out from McKinley. A few more days yet before I will give it a try! Cliff

      Definitely not surprised with this change. One might as well license the wheel house anyway.  Keeping it legally “occupied” is a pain just to avoid buying the license.

      A public meeting to discuss a draft transition plan for Hill Annex Mine State Park will take place Thursday, Nov. 30, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Calumet City Hall, 932 Gary St., Calumet. Legislation in 2017 guided five local partners (DNR, Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Board, Itasca County, City of Calumet and the Western Mesabi Mine Planning Board) to work on an alternate operating model for local management and operation of the Hill Annex Mine. The work group has concluded that operation of the site as a park under any jurisdiction is extremely unlikely and is proposing a feasibility study to explore other local economic development opportunities that preserve the history of Hill Annex Mine, promote existing amenities along the Mesabi Trail, and better connect the cities of Calumet and Marble. At the public meeting, the work group will hold a facilitated discussion to review feedback on the draft project report. The report will be submitted to the 2018 Legislature. Interested members of the public are welcome to attend and participate in the discussion. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I am a lazy angler, so winter fishing suits me fine.  I typically fish with pike suckers or chubs on a plain #6 hook 6" off the bottom, and do just fine on ice.  As they said, the best bite times are sunrise-10:30am and 3:00pm-sunset; although I do occasionally catch some in the middle of the day.  I have caught very few walleyes after dark.
