      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 .

Battery Operated Aerator

Is there an aerator out there that operates from a battery only? I want to rig a kind of portable livewell.
Thanx

Robert, I have a Fish Saver which has 3 suction cups to secure on bottom of tank/bucket and a pipe to spray water back down. There is also Bubble Saver which operates on 1.5 D batteries and clips on side of bucket.
Another way it to purchase a small bilge pump (100/300gpm) and rig up small PVC pipes to aerate tank.

I use mine in a 5gals bucket.

Oh yeah. Reversing a bilge pump and sticking it in the bottom of a bucket works great.

You won't lose a minnow, even on a 95 degree day with the bucket in the direct sunlight.

Speaking from experience.

I've got an old ice chest like Phyl describes, and the pump that Valv describes, my pump is 12V. Works fine. Have kept bluegills alive all day when its 85, also kept bass and pike alive in it to. The ice chest was a freebie, and the pump was $20+/- at Fleet Farm.

If there is something I could gripe about, its the foam the pump makes by spraying the water. Oh well - its a cheap way to add a livewell to a boat that doesn't have one.

Somebody told me to use and old cooler and one of those portable pumps and that it worked really well. But of course I have not tried it.
