      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 .

Heating a Double wide portable

Recommended Posts

I don't know about that Paul,
Bluewater Bait in Bemidji has a heater that just might do it.

I could very well be wrong, because I haven't tried it in a double wide. However Jeff Beckwith has and it would be interesting to hear his take on it.

Even if one heater would have the capacity to heat a double wide, I would think you would never be able to find a "happy medium".

By the time the people on the opposite side of the house were comfortable, and the holes on the opposite side would stop freezing, the folks closest to the heater would be sweating to death...

I have an otter resort and I even use 2 heaters at times, I hang a buddy heater from the back, and place a sunflower in the corner... I also have made panels out of reflectix insulation that I can fasten to the back and the top with velcro - this helps out tremendously....

I have one that will do it. This thing is a tank, but fits on a 20# tank. It is a Focus 30. One burner is 15000 btu and with both burners on it is 30000 btu. How's that for heat, LOL? I put it in a small two man and had to turn it off after 5 minutes. It is just a little bulky and pretty loud, but man does it put out the heat. That heater would make Tim the Toolman proud! I use it in my 10x16 shed when messing around out there in the cold. Now I just need a few flowers and hula girls.

I have a Century infared regulated propane heater, 3 setting low, med and high. 10 000 to 12 000 btu's. I use this in a small one man portable on low heat and heat a 6 man permanent house on high. The unit is a bit bulky being on on propane tank but lasts 3-4 months on a full tank going out twice a week for 10 hrs a session. You can even turn the head around and use it to cook on.
Cheers!!

    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?  
    • Thanks RD!  Good info. That's an interesting technique with the Chatterbait.  I will try it.  If you don't mind -- what kind of trailer do you like with the Chatterbait for that technique?  There will be 3 of us fishing so it will a little tight.  Probably will only bring 3 rods...  I am thinking a Jig rod, T-rig rod (plan to try a Nekko rig with this as well)  and one moving bait rod (Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, Buzzbait, Frog, Cranks, etc.)  The great thing about Ottertail county (like others in Mn), there are a thousand lakes... we will hit 2 or 3 a day.  If we have good conditions (low pressure/moderate wind) we will probably try Musky on Battle Lake.
    • Mahi are hard to catch in Minnesota.  Specialized equipment is required. 
    • Any recent reports?
    • Down this way I have been getting most my fish around weed edges and weed clumps. Trigs for good edges and chatterbaits worked on bottom or over the weeds, kinda how I would fish a jig. Water around here is pretty murky right now. Docks have been good on those lakes with dirty water and not so many weeds.
