      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 .

I have to say a $12 dollar coleman or poulan stove top is the smallest cheapest and kicks out all the BTU's you will need for a fishtrap, plus it's versatile for cooking, small and light weight. I use a base off a coleman 1pd canister holder that keeps the unit steady it's a wide circular base about 9" that steadies the bottle and stove unit. Make sure your trap has air vents. Check the Coleman HSOforum or call them direct to see if they sell the 1pd. propane canister bases if not you can make one, fairly simple.

I use a 5# propane tank and the smaller poulan heater head that screw right on to the tank. I think that it puts out 3-5000 btu and is plenty. Have used the full size Mr.Heater tank mt also but it is a bit much for such a small area. I've also tried the small one pound tank heaters but they dont seem to work very well when it is real cold and then your screwed.
