      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 wear all my layers with my bibs and coat for regular hunting. Over that, i wear cover pants and coat (not insulated)white camo. Purchase anything that will blend in with the cover you are hunting.

I wear layers of camo clothing and on the outer shell I wear a white coverup suit white facemask and hat. Don't be afraid to hunt with what you have for gear(camo) you will still be able to get action just try and use something for a backdrop like a tree,bush,clump of grass etc.

I dress as warm and possible with layers and such and then I lay under a White Bed sheet I pile some snow over get comfortable and wait to see what happens. I think it keeps some heat it with the snow on top! Good luck! (Bring hand warmers)

I wear my camo cold gear and then put on the white camo from cabelas. with the tree branches on it. I started out with the white camo poncho from fleet farm, I think it was military surplus. I still have it and use it on my legs since I don't have the camo bottoms yet.........I was reading a really interesting article in Predator Masters that talked about how coyotes see color. I have saved it and will re-read it a few more times and report that back here. It was very interesting. The biggest things is to breakup your outline. They can see greens, but lots of their colors fade to tans

i have camo bibs that turn inside out and are white. And i bought a white jacket from scheels along with a white facemask and gloves. Thats what i wear if there is just snow when i'm going to be sitting. Otherwise if theres some black dirt showing ill wear my white jacket with black carhart bibs to blend in a little better. I always wear a white jacket since thats the most part of my body that is going to be moving and the white jacket blends in really good with the snow and is hard to detect movement. I normally am set up in a wide open field situation. When i do set up near or by cover i wear white bibs and camo jacket to blend in with the surroundings.

go buy a white painters suit from fleet farm ... one piece full body camo only spend seven bucks... grab a can of black spray paint and an extra suit then spraypaint sticks on one and leave one all white then you have your choice! works awesome

How long does it take for paint smell to go away? Also i tried using those one piece suits but they always ripped all over from putting on and off. (yours might be a different fabric though)

i've tried those suits also and mine have always ripped. I spent maybe 70 bucks total for white bibs and jacket. The jacket is thinner with a wind breaker type style inside with breathable mesh. Just got a big enough size to throw some layers on underneath and i'm good to go

i have a go-to layering system i wear when predator hunting so i can shed layers if were doing a spot and stalk or post/drive style hunt. as far as snow camo, im a HUGE fan of the Natgear snow camo. that stuff flat out rocks in open country and in the woods. ive got some of the northwoods snow camo too but it has a blueish hue to it so i usually just bring it along incase somebody else forgets theirs.

    • Where did you get your subfloor? How is it holding up? 
    •     thats what I have heard also..  I have put a tip up out on the lake and stay in my home, less than 200 feet, no issue...  could see it always...
    • The dump and run brings home the HJE trophy for the 60th anniversary of the race and on the 20th anniversary of the #3’s win of the race.   Any thoughts?   I’m only a part time fan these days but it seems like the move is totally acceptable these days.  Or is it just if you’re part of racing royalty?  20 years ago there woulda been a fight.   I will say I enjoyed the race and glad it was good since I’ve had to sit on my butt all day not feeling good.  Oh, and the Monster Energy marketing gals don’t suck. 
    • I would also look into using SIPS panels as an alternative to post framed. I have done a lot of projects using SIPS panels from a company called EPS in Iowa including the new fire station/ city hall in our town.    The cost of the panels is higher than the material cost of post framed but they are super insulated, go up fast and really cut down on outside noise. Our city has saved a significant amount of money in heat savings and you can even put in smaller btu HVAC which saves money. 
    • I always thought it was a visual issue. Not sure of the footage away but going house to house without seeing your lines might be a problem. I've wondered in the summer, casting a sucker off the dock and walking up to the cabin to get something if that was in wrong as well. 
    • I’ve heard people have been getting cited for not bringing up their lines to go their buddies houses less than 200 feet away.    What I haven’t heard is the reason why this legally different than having a tip up outside your house.  I won’t argue that it is different, just haven’t heard why, and what notification systems make it or break it.   Its another situation where the use of technology is moving faster than the laws.  I agree with Pro V: contact the DNR before you have to try to explain it on the ice.  Or maybe you’ve had to do that already.
    • Got another good ride in yesterday ,,, Almost took the same route as the last time I did the Tac but took a wrong turn and put on a few extra miles but still and enjoyable ride ,,, Had lunch at Side Lake and then headed out to the Bearskin trail ,,, Nice trail flat, straight and fast ,, A little too fast for a sled not completely broke in yet any way ,,, I think every one enjoyed the ride and trail conditions ,,, As I type the snow is falling and Im sure trail conditions are improving 
    • Good question to ask the warden.
    • I can't think of one reason to ever have a gas auger again... I get around 20 holes per battery this time of year with a lazer 7 inch
    • WAIT FOR IT Here is James Vladyka's story: This is one of my best friends. We grew up together and have made some crazy memories over the years. He joined the Army shortly after we got out of high school and there was many years where we had to make the best out of a few days of leave that he would get to hunt and fish.   To many years have passed 2 tours Iraq, 3 tours Afghanistan and a few years private contracting he has served our country proudly. Now he's retired and we are making more memories again.   This was another battle to add to his long list.  Brock landed this beautiful Pike through a 6 in kdrill hole on a 20" Jason Mitchell meat stick with a Clam Dropkick tipped with a white Super Jamei on 2 lbs CPT line.   The 14 inch white Crappie in it's mouth was placed there for a size reference. The assist goes to another one of my good friends not pictured Blaine Goad. He reach down the hole and help her come topside
