      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 .

Minnow Buckets for Otter Sleds???

Recommended Posts

How do you guys haul your minnows around while flying between fishing spots. How do you keep them from spilling and at the same time keep them from freezing?

I am very soon going to try my Otter Lodge for the first time and would really like to know how others handle there bait.

Thanks

I use a plastic 1 gallon thermos with a screw on lid. I try to fill it full of water. That way they don't get splashed around so much. The only thing is the lid will sometimes freeze up a bit. A little muscle breaks it free.

I use the styrofoam bucket that fits in a plastic pail. It's a little way down from the top.
Set it on the back of the wheeler, couple of bungee's and away we go.
The other trick is to leave the minnow dip net in the pail. the minnows will bunch up in the net to hide/ride out the storm...lol

Thanks for all the tips guys. I'm going to have to take a look at the frabil buckets and see how they look.

I also like the 3 gallon water jug idea alot. I think that would work good when you are flying down the lake at 50 mph. Maybe put it inside a pail and pack it into a corner to keep it from rolling around???
