      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 .

I use to have em refilled by glo-gas here in Rome and now with higher cost for propane I'll just be buying store bought canisters this season. I loved it when I could get them refilled for $1 a piece, oh well. Call you when I get home Todd have fun doing your truck brakes today.

I have the item your talking about. I've never used it so you're welcome to it. Heard there are some safety issues to be aware of, found it on another page a year or so ago. I can give you a run down if you'd like. My cousin uses his all the time, no problems. don't refill them more than once or twice though. Let me know if you want it. Tim has my #s

Todd - Not worth the hassle im my mind. Nothing worse than a stinky canister in the trap or car, plus the danger it might pose. You can usually find tanks 2 for 5 bucks. Or just toughen up like Tank, he's never fished with a heater. This one older guy we fish with once in a while - I have never even seen him put on gloves!

Todd everyone is right about refilling them not worth it plus dangerous. I just put the empties in with the recyclables smile Wally world has tanks for under $3 each I only use Coleman as i found the cheaper brands like Ozark trail seem to clog up my heaters (must be dirty propane?)

Hey I just remebered Rosa's sister is dating a guy who wotks for a fuel delivery company. They sell about every type of gas there is... Let me see if they handle something small as new one pounders. It's worth checking anways. Price of propane was two bottles for $3 and now it's doubled over the last year, eventually you would think with the gas price drop you'd figure those prices on 1 lb'ers would come down as well.

I remember the bad dog stuff Ray well. I also remember those stacked propeller jigs you got. Caught quite a few gills with those. I did manage a nice walleye on one of the bad dog jigging spoons as well.

Makes me smile! I still have a mess of them! Those guys did right by us!! All for a phone call. lol I couldn't get him or the guy from Atom's off the phone! Couldn't believe little ole' CNY wanted their stuff. I've found most places like to talk to and hep out a little guy. Especially when I tell them it's our group that's interested, we're gonna use the [PoorWordUsage] out of them and we'll tell everyone about them. I've got to order some Maki plastics. You should tell him we can get him into Susser's in Albany. He's a small wholesaler that covers a good territory. Exposure!! Glad to help him out if he'd like.

Heck Tim, for you guys, I'll call and schmooze anyone! lol I'll call you this week. Need your opinion on a new shack and selling my old trap.

I pick up all those empties that i find laying around on the ice in the morning when i get there. Then, at the end of the day, i wait until the night fisherman get there, and come out on the ice. As I'm leaving, i just throw them in the backs of their trucks! They don't care, they just leave me more to pick up the next day....

I have never had a problem refilling them, not that your going to save hundreds by doing it but they are easy and fast to refill with an attachment. There is a little science involved to it...put the 20 lb. cylinder in the deep freeze and get it cold.

    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?  
    • Thanks RD!  Good info. That's an interesting technique with the Chatterbait.  I will try it.  If you don't mind -- what kind of trailer do you like with the Chatterbait for that technique?  There will be 3 of us fishing so it will a little tight.  Probably will only bring 3 rods...  I am thinking a Jig rod, T-rig rod (plan to try a Nekko rig with this as well)  and one moving bait rod (Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, Buzzbait, Frog, Cranks, etc.)  The great thing about Ottertail county (like others in Mn), there are a thousand lakes... we will hit 2 or 3 a day.  If we have good conditions (low pressure/moderate wind) we will probably try Musky on Battle Lake.
    • Mahi are hard to catch in Minnesota.  Specialized equipment is required. 
    • Any recent reports?
    • Down this way I have been getting most my fish around weed edges and weed clumps. Trigs for good edges and chatterbaits worked on bottom or over the weeds, kinda how I would fish a jig. Water around here is pretty murky right now. Docks have been good on those lakes with dirty water and not so many weeds.
    •   You'd poke yer eye out.
