      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 .

Skis on Traps!

Recommended Posts

I just picked up a pair of great condition Rossignol 160 downhill skis without bindings. I am going to mount them on my Fish Trap Pro...any suggestions?

I want to keep it simple stupid...KISS!

We put skies on our traps to save the bottoms.Cut them to length ,2 screws countersunk and you should be all set.

Thanks Tank...I was thinking about putting four 4 inch blocks to raise it up a bit!

I was thinking it wouldn't push as much snow if I did this. Plus raise the seat a bit. Then I run into the trouble of the skirt not sealing the edges...I have a few months to weigh out my options confused

Nice idea on the lift kit. That would have to help when pulling in snow. 4 inches might be too much as that might lift the skirt too much. But a 2 inch lift might work well. I'd try it but our two traps stack with just enough room in our Jeeps and fit just right under Billys toneu cover.

Try the lift kit then you could always reduce the height if needed...

I put my skis on top of those worthless runners clam has. Brought it up about half inch but anything is better than those runners . . .I just screwed through the holes that were there.

I have been contemplating rigging up my trap with some type conduit pipe that could easily be raised/lowered for the purpose of easier dragging through deep snow I haven't tried anything yet but was thinking something along the lines of using spring buttons that are currently used or the traps or some type of locking spring hinge

I saw some Guy's at the Silver TA that used your idea Tim. They pulled it all over the place...they also had a machine, so I guess it didn't really much matter.

    • Boar, in past years you have posted that you use dog food at some bait sites, with grease on it, how does it work? Thanks minky
    • Anyone having any action at their bear baits? I have one bear coming in.
    • It seems like summer just got here and already there are signs of it ending. In the north a few maple trees are just starting to show some fall colors. A pair of bucks were seen this week, one still in velvet antlers and the other had already shed. The late summer yellows of tansy, black-eyed Susans and goldenrod speak of shorter days to come.Continued rain showers in the last week, especially across the north, are keeping river systems at higher than normal levels for mid-August. Brown trout fishing continues to pick up on the Bois Brule River. The catfish bite is on on the Wisconsin River in central Wisconsin with anglers landing good number of channel catfish. Some walleye, smallmouth bass, catfish and drum are being caught in the Peshtigo and Menominee rivers. Anglers have had good success on both the Fox and Wolf rivers catching northern pike, walleye, catfish and panfish.On Green Bay, anglers fishing for walleye on the west shore from the mouth of the Pensaukee River to Oconto are finally getting on to fish, while along the east shore success was more mixed with about half the boats reporting harvesting a few walleye while others did not catch any. Anglers targeting smallmouth bass along Door County had success in water ranging from 4 to 20 feet. In Sturgeon Bay perch fishing has been pretty good with some anglers catching their 15 fish bag limit including some larger 12-inch perch. .
