      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 .

Free Chest Freezer - Not Working

Recommended Posts

Details: Whirlpool 9.0 cubic foot chest freezer. (Model EGH-090F)

Dimensions: 37"L x 35"H x 28"W

Age: Probably close to 20 years old.

Problem: Runs but does not get cold.

My intent is not for this to be another "box fan" post (although that one is entertaining). I just figured someone could maybe fix it or convert it into a bait or fish tank. Let me know if you're interested. I live in Forest Lake and work in Roseville but would be willing to meet some where if it worked out. I also head north frequently up the 35 corridor. Thanks - FL Sniper

I just shook my head when I read the title of this post.

Why?

You would be surprised how many people use these old non working freezers.

One mans junk.......

I wanted it so I could make a smoker out of it; but then I realized that it was too far of a drive when I can just use my neighbors when I need it.

Should I change the title? You think that would help? I've seen some small baitstores and resorts use old freezer for bait tanks so I thought maybe someone could use it. I'd just like to get rid of it...and figured maybe I could help someone out and save myself some $ by having to take it to the dump. Can't blame a guy for trying eh? (I do understand what you mean about it being like the box fan post...lol)

If I had the space for it I would probably take it. Using them for bait tanks is a really good idea. My uncle has one set up like that down in Arkansas.

Just made me chuckle. I keep coming back to see if the "20 box fan" posts have started coming in yet. Just giving you a little good natured grief.

Ok, i'll bite, does it have any cool stickers on it? lol whistle

The "boxfan" is still one of the best alltime threads...

Maybe if you fixed the boxfan up you could use it to make the freezer work.

Old freezers always made good places to hide when we played hide n' seek as kids too. grin

Now you know..... and knowing is half the battle.

    • I would always use tree tubes for any hardwoods. If it's small enough to need a tube for protection from deer, rabbits, other... than use the tube. If your putting in the time and money to plant them, you might as well protect them.    Lots of them are on the market. I have only used one type of tube myself. Tubex- combitudes (spelling?). If you are worried about deer you should get the 5 foot tubes. Since that is about the upper limit of their browsing heights. I've used the fiberglass green stakes from L & M instead of buying the stakes from tree tubes suppliers. The only problems i have had so far is a curious bear, who wanted to chew a few tubes.    The other thing you should think about talking to your local DNR forester. They can help you to make sure you are planting trees that are correct for your soils. And may be able to help financially to purchase tubes. https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/cfm-map.html    Hope this helps, 
    • Thanks. Even got the itch to take a spin after seeing other bikes out today. Just a short ride down to the car wash to knock the dust off. Should have worn gloves though as it was a little nippy on the fingers. Maybe Ill run my Super Glide down there tomorrow
    • Birds in my area are too responsive, and yes i had 2 big fellas come in to my 1 tom and 2 hen set up. Accually i had the whole flock coming in and it was load with the hens and all the toms. One thing i fogured out is if there is alot of birds dont be soft calling. I tried to top the old hen and thats what pulled them my way. Good luck to my team and hopfully everybody could have a morning like I did, it wont be forgotten.
    • Well sounds like all went well. My wife just called and picked her up. She does have a drain tube but according to the wife she's acting normal..... For her!
    • Nice to see a few bird getting knocked down. Good job to those successful so far!  Are you guys out A season seeing a lot of responses to calls or decoys? 
    • good luck Zach!
    • Congrats featherslayer. Very nice bird! I got  a decent two year old this morning also. Twenty pounds eight ounces, nine inch beard, and five eigths inch spurs. The strut stopped for a couple of them today. Try to get a pic up later.
    • Heres a couple pictures we took after my work meeting and waking up the wife.
    • Smurf hope all goes well with the pooch. Definitely tough to see them as they age my 9 year old lab is getting pretty greyfaced. Started looking for another up and comer to start the training process again .
