      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 .

Airating minnows in frig....

Recommended Posts

I try to keep minnows in an old frig, but they don't last very long. I change water every couple days, and still the shinners and even fatheads die. Does any one know of a 110v airator that I can hook up in this frig?

If you have a cool place like a basement wall or pantry, that is all you need. You can skip the whole fridge thing and save the hassle.

Frabill has a couple very good 110 and 12V aeration systems out. One will adapt to both so that is twice as handy.

The new Micro Bubble stones does a bang up job with less power consumption. I keep bait for weeks in my Min-O-Life Bait Station
in the pantry with no problem at all. Once you combine the two systems you have a great home and field bait storage system.

ok this might seen simple but if you have city water you have chlorine in the water. a day before you change water fill a bucket and just let it sit over night and change it the next day. also if possible put the water in the frig so the new water and old water is the same temp. I grew up with a well and had the same problem and took a few times of dead minnows on leaches to catch on.

Minnsota Mac.. Some areas are now treatng the water with a new type of cholrine called chloramine. The chloramine does not evaporate. It can be treated with drops from a pet store.

I've always been told that you can't use tap water on your minnows but I just sit the 5 gallon pail (painted black on inside to keep the minnows their natural color) under the tap and refresh every couple days. Never have a problem keeping them.

Here is what I do. Use a water filter that you would use to filter drinking water. I have a brita pitcher and filter that I have been using. 1-2 times a week I fill up a 1 gallon container with filtered water and then put it in the garage overnight so I can get the filtered water approximately the same temp as the water the minnows are in. Drain the old water dump the new stuff in. As said earlier, I think city water has too many chemicals in it. If you fill your bucket from the tap your minnows will be dead in less than a week almost garanteed!

This is the best advise I can give...I have had my shiners alive and kicking for almost 4 weeks now.

Take care!
