      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 .

dehumidifier

Recommended Posts

bucketmouth64

My dehumidifier is not working right. The grill is frosting up completely and no water is accumulating. Last season the auto shut off wasn't working properly so the tank would overflow. Is it time for a new one? Any suggestions? One last question, do I need to run one with central air? Basement is finished.

It may need a good cleaning.

your basement is still a bit cold(at the floor) to properly run a dehummer most of the time if you set it on a table or run a board across the laundry tub, if ya have one. and get it off the floor it shouldnt freeze up on ya. but it is also a good idea to clean them out at least every other year. if ya can pull the cabinet off of them and give the coils a good blow out, they will run better and more effieciently. same goes for your air conditioners, both window and central. give them a good cleaning for best operation. as far as dehummers go i have seen some guys make a hanger right above the laundry tub in the basement. and hang them close to the ceiling it is much warmer and more humid as well and they let them dripinto the tubs. never have to empty the bucket. btw the water they do pull out of the air that ends up in the buckets is great for your house plants. ... paul

I have the same problem in early spring when the basement is still pretty chilly. Some dehumidifiers do work better at colder temps. I would think your problem is the temperature.

I took it apart and everything is pretty clean. The problem I have noticed is when it frosts up it doesn't engage in the melting process so water can drain into the bucket. Frost just keeps building up from the bottom to the top. I can turn the dial and the melting will commence. Temp. in my basement is about 65-68, is that too cool for it to run?

You may need ot work with the adjustment. I can tell when I walk in the basement if the humidy is up or down so I adjust as needed. I also have a big family room downstairs and have a fan blowing air around just for circulation. My biggest problem is that the dehumidifer works so hard that it generates a lot of heat and makes the basement warm as a result. I'd like to find a dehumidifer that would vent to the outside; in my mind I have an idea to make a cowling and hook it up to the dryer vent pipe but I haven't had the time to make it happen.

      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?

      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.

      Hey all, I am looking to catch a decent perch in the 7" or bigger range and soon because in my class at school we get to taxidermy a fish and I would like to do a yellow perch, I have fished little Pulaski for 2 days and Buffalo for one and caught nothing on Buffalo lake and some bluegills and bass on little pulaski. Anyone got advice on spots in little Pulaski or Buffalo lake or just another lake near by Buffalo as well for perch? Thanks - jim
