      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 .

See your vet. Could be a couple of different things. Giardia, intestinal parasites, foreign body, bacterial overgrowth, etc. If going on for 24+ hours, time to get some help. How old is your pup?

3.5 months means most likely an intestinal parasite but could be parvovirus or a foreign body. Any vaccines yet?

I'm voting for Giardia. Take your pup to the vet.

My pup had it.... I started to become concerned as I never had a pup that had diarrhea before. I've had my lab have severe diarrhea in the past but nothing when she was a puppy.

It turned out to be something he ate.

What I did was took him off food for the entire day. (The serving should depend on the size of your dog my pup was 10 lbs)

The next morning I fed him a 1/2 cup of rice. I feed my pup twice a day. I was feeding him a cup of rice a day for three days.

He was getting back to normal stool's by the second day so I added a little (small handful) of his food to the rice. I continued to add a little more of his dog food each feeding. By the fourth day he was 100% better.

I know there could be 1000's of different reasons why your pup has diarrhea this method worked for me. I've added boiled hamburger meat to the rice for my lab in the past.

I would have to say if your pup is playful, eating normal, drinking water, happy, playful, acting normal the pup should be ok.

If your pup is acting out of the ordinary there defiantly is something wrong.

I hope that it turns out to be something your pup has ate also!

My 5 mo Lab had it 3 weeks ago. It was really bad. In the crate every hour overnight. I called the vet, since I had done a previous stool sample she prescribed a med. the dog took for 5 days and it did the trick after the first day.

When you say she's been wormed once, do you mean one dose of dewormer or one dose, two weeks apart, three times?

I deffinitly would bring a stool sample in to the vet and make an appointment Get him/her checked for parasites etc... If nothing is wrong I then would Attribute it to the food What are you feeding? Food is a biggy here. A low quality food like Science Diet can sometimes cause that.

Canned Pumpkin will often do the trick. A guy at a kennel up in Chisago recomended giving it a try and it works great. That and the dogs love it.

Exercise will often do the trick.

Hard to get a post in working long hours and the problem is hopefully already cured. Will post this up anyways so someone can use this home remedy in the future. Has worked for us everytime the squirts show up. Day one - no food. Day two - half ration. Day three - back to normal diet. If symptoms are still there, it's time for the vet.

For a grown dog, we take them off food and give a tablespoon of Pepto-bismo twice a day. On the second day we feed white rice and ease back to dog food the third day. With a young pup I play it safe and see the vet if it lasts more than a day.

      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
