      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 .

Tip-up Alarms?

Recommended Posts

I am looking for something that will alert me in the fish house when a flag goes up. A guy I work with has something he bought that does this, but it was 30 bucks and only has a sensor for 1 flag. Anybody have any suggestions for something that will work for at least 2 or maybe 3 flags?

Strike Sensor is the way to go. You get a pager that stays with you and the alarm goes on the tip up. The is a code just like a garage door opener that you punch in and you can have as many alarms as you want as long as you have the same code punched in. It works up to 800 feet away. Thats what I have been using for the last 3 years.

Buy the strike sensor it is magnificent. You only need one of the pagers. They sell just the sensors seperately. Currently i have one pager that takes care of four sensors. 2 for me 2 for my lady.

I saw a set up last year that I want to try this year in my house. It was a wireless battery doorbell system (you can buy them at any lumberyard/hardware store. They come with two buttons that you just need to attach one to the flagpole and the other to a something like a "L" bracket so when the flag is up they make contact and it rings the doorbell in the house. Looked easy to set-up. Man I should get on this myself.

I'm getting a strike sensor this year.

I got a cheaper version, Flag Alert by Nature Vision, last year. It worked, but is tricky at times turning on and off. Sometimes it was hard to tell if the thing was turned off.

The clip-on alarms that light up when the flag goes vertical work nicely at night when you can see your tip-up.

How far away can you be from your tip-up legally?

In Minnesota 200Ft. That means 200 ft at anytime. You can't set your tip-ups 200 ft away from you in different direction's and sit in the middle. If you go to one tip you would then be 400 ft away from the other tip-up.

So, you must be with-in 200 ft. of your tip-ups at all times.

    • You heard wrong and he left on his own, multiple times....
    • I have been adding a little equipment to my butchering hobby every year and this year I am going to add a bandsaw to the mix.  On the WWW there are a bunch of them in the 280-450 range that all look like rebranded clones of each other.    Then, from there it looks like the next jump is the Rikon/grizzly model that has bearing guides, a better blade and it looks like a better fit and finish for 650- 800 depending on the retailer. Does anyone have any experience with either of these types or anything similar?  I'm not going to spend the dollars to get a commercial model.     
    • Ya its been a long day. I don't know if I'm a puss or what but I havent even been able to eat today. Never lost a deer before. Hopefully never again. Worst part is I don't know what went wrong I would make exact same shot again.
    • Awesome thank you  
    • Sorry Charlie.  Way I heard it, the lords didn't like him having a plug for his sight in his .sig so he moved on, like many of the cooking folks did to another place.   I am there too, so come on over....  Just leave the politics here.  
    • Gee Dave, you are sure a  believer in the overprotective government.   I bet you cook all your eggs hard, and your chicken to 165.  You need to read up on pasteurization... It's a time and temperature thing. 
    • Reinhardt's skin was about as thick as sausage casing, it was after Obama got re-elected and the realization that he couldn't howl from his deer stand after Romney's victory. That's when he left, so it's been a while. He was a good dude with a lot of experience in a variety of things. A lot of folks are missed around these parts.  
    • Yeah, I think the first time was after too many people made fun of Michelle Bachmann.  Too bad. He had some great old school knowledge of sausages and butchering in general. 
    • I thought he just got mad and took his ball and went home? Didn't he do that at least a time or 2? I do miss Reinhardt though....
    • Check his web sight which caused him to get expelled from HSO many moons ago.... It has all his recipes and info on it.   www dot sausage heaven outdoors dot com   with a http:// and some deleted spaces you will be golden.
