      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 .

Livewell won't drain

Recommended Posts

Good day all. Ever since I returned from vacation my livewell will not drain. I have attempted to unplug it without dismantling my entire boat. I have used an air compressor in attempt to blow something out that may be blocking the way, but that hasn't worked. The weird thing is, I get plent of air blowing out the back when I do this, but no water. Any thoughts? Thanks

I bet you have a minnow stuck in it (guess how I know about it grin ). Anyway, there's not much you can do until you get the "clog" gone, air will help. Try with a small toilet plunger, fill up tank with about 1 inch of water and work the plunger, it worked for me... I had 3 minnows stuck in there.

Or back-feed the outlet hole with water from a garden hose. I've had plenty of minnows and up-chucked stuff from fish in my livewell drain line and have found this method to be effective.

I ran a electrical fish, not trying to be smart, the steel tape electricians use to pull wires, up the drain pipe, tied a small chunk of rag on the hook and pulled it out, not only were there dead minnows in it, but a small bobber.

    • $2,750 it's in darn good condition as well.
    • How much for the old one?
    • Im from N.D. and guided for many yrs from Sask to Texas. And why anyone would go to N.D and hunt  waterfowl is a mystery to me. Canada has the best waterfowl hunting  I have ever seen. You only have to drive  500 miles more. There is no posted land and no hunters. Its a waterfowlers dream.   We averaged 69 Geese a day for 15 yrs plus I never counted the  Ducks  in the decoys in the mornings. In the evening clients would sit at a slough and shoot ducks while I found a field to hunt geese in the next morning.   Pretty good chance you would shoot more bird in one day than in N.D. in a week.
    • Fish thanks for the heads up, We have it planned for next week so at least I'll Miss the MEA weekend yahoos.
    • any rub on it??   I got to try this!!
    • Picked up a new to me sled with only a 122 miles on it!  It's the same sled I already have Arctic Cat Panther 570 fan, which I will only use since I ice fish more then trail ride. Things in perfect shape the guy used it like 4 times with his family and has 120 compression on both sides and is Mint!  Not as pretty as the old Black and red one which has 3165 miles on it but just to nice to pass up. Old ones going on C/list now. 
    • I've got a small one waiting. Just trying to find time when I and the smoker will be in the same spot for enough hours! I have a good feeling that the week after Deer Hunting closes and Ice forms. The smoker will be doing a lot of catch up!!!
    • I wouldn't even bother going to NoDak before Nov 1. Too many yahoos. There's still plenty of guys up there later, but at least most of them are legitimate hunters
    • You can get longer but at a premium, and I'm not a huge fan because of the different firmness from back to bottom along with the groove makes sleeping awkward.  You could make one easy enough or modify a futon.  Find a used one and gut the hardware out to make your own that will blend in better.
    • $4.59/lb not sure how good or bad that is. But I am more intrigued by size and experiment with that rather than a full packer.
