      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 .

My dad would collect all his crawlers in the spring and keep them all summer but they had to be stored in a cool spot. We had a tuck under garage and the back of the garage was cool enough. He had a 2'x4'with 2' walls and he filled it 2/3 full of dirt and would always put the crawler on top and let them go into the dirt by themselves so if you had any bad ones they would stay on top. He would cover the dirt with a couple of layers of damp newspapers. You would have to change out the newspapers every couple of weeks because the crawlers would eat the stuff up and it would deteriorate. When we would go fishing for the day we would pack the crawlers in damp newspaper in a cooler with some blue ice. They would be really lively and there would be no dirt on the floor.

Thanks for the input. Does the newspaper have to be mostly black and white? Or is the colored ink a factor. I assume its just ground up newspaper that the bait shops pack crawlers in. I got a spot in the shop that would stay 45-50F all winter.

We just used the black and white. Those temps should be perfect or long term storage. Just make sure that when ever you add any that you put them on top and let them crawl into the dirt by themselves. We would always go out and get our crawlers on a warm rainy night in late April or early May and walk down the streets and pick them up by the 1000 but we would only keep a couple 100 for our use and the rest we would sell for gas money for our fishing trips.
