      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 .

Bacon Burn Question

Recommended Posts

How high up on the coffee can do you put your holes for the wire?

How many tea candles do you put in the bottom of the coffee can?

How many pieces of bacon do you put in the soup can?

Any help is always appreciated.

Biff, I put the holes about half way up the can. And a sterno candle works better then tea candles, burns longer and hotter, although they do cost more. I would use a soup can and stuff it half full, 4-5 pieces. I shot my first bear with her nose in the can. I thought about chowing down the bacon but I was bloody up to my elbows.

I like to use sterno to Ihave use tea candles but they tend to get blowen out, wally world has sterno in the camping section, i also like to put the wires when using sterno near the top of the coffee can cause sterno burns realy hot, it takes some experimenting with the distance from heat to bacon, one thig I do is go to the food store an buy the biggest box of bacon trimming they have, it is generally alot cheaper, I find about a 5lb box for 5 bucks, at my store, an just cook about half of it up, save the grease, then do a burn with the grease an add some bacon to that, that way it has alot more simmering effect than a frying effect, basicly it wont burn it right away. Also I have hear of using honey an cherry jello mix works really good to, Boar

Great info guys. I really appreciate it. Unfortuneatly I can not practice the burn tomorrow as I have to work. So I will buy the sterno tomorrow on my lunch and listen to Boar's advice and put the holes towards the top and do the burn tomorrow night and hope this bear comes in. Tonight would have a been a great night to do it.

If your worried about bacon burning in your can and want to leave your sterno candle buring for 2 hours add about a half can of used fish grease in the mix with bacon in it. It doesn't smoke as much and it really puts out an aroma.

Gook luck
