      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 .

Congratulations on your purchase! What type of Otter did you buy? As far as storage goes, I would check out some of the posts on portable modifications for ideas by doing a search. It would be nice if they would stick modifications at the top of this forum as there have been numerous threads about this topic.

Well, I guess you will have to come up with your own personalized mod to satify your needs. Let us know what you come up with, and post some pics if possible. Good Luck!

Did you check out the mods that had the bottles in the PVC tubing and then secured in the tub.

Or the mod that had the bottles in a block of styrafoam.

I thought both of those were good ideas and just wanted to make sure you didn't miss them.

I've been just using a storage bin just for the propane in mine.

I just put my fish towel on the bottom of a 5 gallon pail and my 1#ers in it on top of that then another fish towel stuffed in between them. I carry my 11#er in a milk crate.

I also liked the foam idea and will be using that in my house this year since I am using 1lbers for my heater due to space issues. I believe he just got a piece of foam that was an inch or 2 thick then cut holes down halfway into the foam to hold the tanks upright.

Cheap and light...

WTN4ICE, is that black strip tape or a piece of metal? I like the design.

I used plastic rain gutter to make a shelf or tray along 2 sides of 1 of my portables and a;ong 3 sides of my other portable. The 1 lb tanks ride very nicely in those rain gutter trays.

Both my buddy & big buddy heaters have a case they sit in with two pouches on the sides to hold extra 1# tanks. I always install my 1#s on the heater before I head out (unless I am using an external tank), then put two extra's in the poutches for my lantern and spares.

The case for the regular buddy came with the unit in the box. The Big buddy case, i purchased at Cabelas. Great for providing extra protection, and keeping dust from collectin when in storage.

I have been using a milk crate for years. Nine of them fit vertically perfectly. If I'm going to be gone any longer, three more fit on top, on their side. No real need to strap them in, they stay right in the crate. The crate is open frame so it doesn't weigh much. Plus if you ARE strapping things in your tub, the open frame of the crate is a great thing to strap to. Works excellent. I store them year round in the crate(s), they stack well.

    • Same here I set the blind where they like to be. Even if that is in the middle of a 500 acre sod field. 
    • It just gives me more time to pass on the addiction to anyone I can be to come out. 
    •     Yep pop it up and hunt they work great.
    • Fletcher is gone, pretty impartial to this, will be interesting to see who they bring in and what they do to shake up the team. Overall I think he was a good gm but not great, pulled us out of the dark ages but never seemed to get us over the hump. New GM will have a much better starting point as far as players and assets go.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/2018/04/23/wild-split-with-gm-chuck-fletcher-after-playoff-exit/34168091/
    • I made some maybe 5 years ago and put one on a tree and the other at the end peak on a garage. The one on the garage had bats in the first year, the one on the tree finally had some in last year. 2 different designs so that may have made a difference. I made 1 for my daughter 3 years ago and put it on the garage and they used it the 2nd year. Mine are black- hers a dark brown. Don't put them in an area where bat dump can be a problem.  Good luck with them.
    •   Thanks. I get a kick out of people saying they need to brush in their blinds.  This was right in the middle of a corn field on it's highest spot, as visible as can be.
    •   Congrats Don, like the corn field picture.
    • Yep, excellent suggestions fellas!  If it's nice out this evening (supposed to be) we're going to go give it a try.  I'll bring lots of snacks, camera, binocs, and maybe even a tablet for her to play on.  
    • Not exactly bird related, but close enough. Do any of you have a bat house? I want to get one, but don’t exactly know where to put it. I see that DNR mounts them on long polls at boat launches and campgrounds, but I don’t really want to go that route. I’m wondering if a tree, or the side of my garage would suffice? Is there any benefits to painting them black? And how successful are they at attracting bats? How long did it take for them to show up? Amazon sells bat house attractant, but it’s pretty spendy.
