      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 .

Good idea to pre buy propane this year?

Recommended Posts

I was quoted 2.40(cash) and 2.40 (credit) per gallon to prebuy the amount we used last year in Bemidji area. Is anyone else going to pre buy this year?

Those are good prices and absolutely YES you should prebuy but it might be too late. I prebuy every year as well. $2.35, up .79 cents from last year We combine my tank and the neighbor's 3 tanks. Bulk rate and pay on the spot. Writing a $10,000 check is weird.

Just an FYI, around twelve years ago I prepaid at .65 a gallon.

We did not pre-buy this year frown I have every year, to price protect myself. The reason we did not pre-buy? 200 Gal minimum x $2.52= $500 Bucks

I just dont have $500 laying around, so I will be rolloin' the dice this winter.

All my money went into boat fuel cry

This is ridiculus mad

when I bought my cabin in 01 propane was $.089 per Gal

If you pre-buy and the price goes down, most companies will credit you the surplus. Prices are going down right wink

"We combine my tank and the neighbor's 3 tanks"

The 10 grand was the total for 3 homes and 1 Studio.

I'm heating 2100 sq ft with a propane 60,000 btu 90+ forced air furnace. That'll take around 1000 gallons. Couldn't do that if I wasn't insulated good. cool

I installed the unit myself along with all the duct work at a tune of $800. If I compare that to fuel oil or electric the unit paid for itself the first year. If and when I need a new heating system I'll be looking into alternatives.

Yeah I was really torqed when I found out my neighbor got his propane out of Roseau for 2.18 and I got laid down in Baudette for 2.52 mad why does it vary so much from gas suppliers. I also found out it is cheaper if you own your tank. I lease mine. Anybody know what a 500 gal tank costs?

My parents have a manufactured home on the back 5 acres of my property.

This fall they're switching over to natural gas. It'll cost $1100 (unless they can get a deal because of being 70), but at $2.49 / gallon they were paying, they figure within 18-24 months they'll save that much.

That $2.49 was a pre-pay, contract rate.

Propane has come down some...but not enough to really give us a break for winter heating. Lets hope it starts to fall like gasoline prices!

    •   Duff I think you can make this there and add it to the rental yak!    
    • Didn’t know you could see the clouds of our snowstorm from that far away!    Looks kinda awesome.  Ok, more than kinda. 
    • That’s good news even though I don’t live in that area anymore.  I was always disappointed that they left Coon Rapids.  I thought they were doing good enough business there.   I wonder if the Gander situation helped them decide to go back?
    •   Great! Didn't always want to run over to South St Paul to see what they had.
    • Anyone have a purple martin house? I’m planning on putting one up this spring, but I don’t quite have the open space that is suggested (minimum of 40 ft from tall trees/house). Wondering if anyone has had those same issues, but were still successful in attracting purple martins? The pole I bought is 12 ft high, so I’m thinking of maybe buying a second one, and using a couple of the extensions to make it a few feet higher to compensate for the lack of open space. Have the martins had a noticeable impact on bugs? I’m hoping they can do a number on the horse flies in my neighborhood. Plus, they sound really pretty 
    • Anoka Union paper says it is moving into the sports authority building in Coon Rapids.  
    • While the southern half of the state saw some significant rainfall and even some flooding this week, areas of northern Wisconsin received up to nearly a foot of new snow. Snowmobile trails remain in good to excellent condition in nearly 20 of the most northern tier counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Cross-Country Ski Trail Conditions are also good to excellent across the north.Cross-country ski trails are in excellent condition at Pattison State Park, which received nearly a foot of snow this week. The park is hosting a Winterfest on Saturday.Photo credit: Gervase Thompson A kids fisheree on Lake Noquebay in Marinette County last weekend produced some very nice fish including perch, crappie, bluegill, walleye, northern, and trout. The lake ice was nearly 2 feet thick. There have been good northern pike catches on the back waters of the Wolf River on tip ups baited with a shiner.Whitefish fishing has remained pretty decent up and down the entire Bay of Green Bay. Some anglers are targeting perch too but with moderate to poor success. Whitefish were still being caught off the Oconto breakwater in decent numbers. Toward the end of the week only anglers from Sawyer Harbor had good luck and were able to come in with their limits of whitefish after a half day out on the ice. Anglers fishing the Fox River at Voyageurs park report fishing slowed with a few walleyes and whitefish still being caught. .
    • The Peacock Bass has been on my fishing bucket list since I first saw a picture of one when I was in elementary school. I don't think I'll make it to the Amazon anytime soon so when our Florida vacation was booked I made it a point to get to SE Florida and chase these beautiful specimens! For our adventure we went out near Miami, FL with local guide Captain Scott Rose. He shared a lot of information about this unique fishery and put us on both numbers and quality fish. Our Biggest 5 weighed in at 20.5lbs! This trip was something I won't soon forget.    
    • I can recall,   farther back than you think, of running into one now and then and finding one inn a trap from time to time. And this was MORE than fifty years ago,  so they've been around a while. Maybe just an uptick in the population in southern MN.
