      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 have a special bathroom bucket for my wife will line it with a plastic bag. After each use the bag will need to be changed and tied up. Put the bags outside and they will freeze. When were ready to lieve the lake will put the bags in the bucket that need to be put into the trush at home. I've ruined a few minnow buckets before I learned that we should have a special bucket.

Yup, special bucket! I saw something called a Luggable Loue at Fleet Farm. It's pretty much a bucket with a fitting toilet seat attached. You can use bags with it.

I took a wooden seat and laid it on the ground and put a 5 gallon pail on the backside and marked it with a pencil were it would sit so it was centered. I then attached small pieces of wood so when it sat on the pail it would not slide around and it will hold the plastic up. For a taller person use a 6 or 7 gallon pail. I like to put all the Doo bags into 1 plastic bag and put in a pail for the ride home.

We have a chemical toilet that we place in the storage area of the v-front for the ladies to go #1. The guys can go outside. If anybody has to go #2 we flip open the portable outside and start the heater for a few minutes, the portable is modded to hold a 5 gallon bucket with a toilet seat cover, we always double bag, tie it closed and disspose of it in a trash can and take it all to share at the end of the trip.

Unfortunately this was my father in laws last year deer hunting so I modded my 8x12 fish house into a handicap deer stand with all the comforts of home. I took a kitchen table chair took the wood seat off of it and screwed (countersunk) a toilet seat in its place. and put a 5 gal bucket under it. My fish house is on the lake now and the Handicrapper is still in it it feels like home. One of my little boys is potty training and it is natural for him to use this when we are fishing. Plus it makes for a nice chair when the lid is closed.

What kind of plastic bags are you guys using and where do you get them? Regular garbage bags or something thicker?

I sense about 5 pages of replies coming for this question wink

We use what is called Reliance double doodie tm. It is a double bag system with bio-gel waste gelation that fits a 5 gal pail. We put them out to freeze and take them home. They work very well for a messy job. They are a little more spendy

    • And Del says ya can eat as many as ya want now!!!     
    • great cheap treat those smoked eggs.  
    • I actually prefer Honeycrisp, because of the sweet/tart flavor. Sweet tango ain't bad either. The others get TOO mushy and seem to lose flavor. But, it's a personal preference. Someone'll whine about there are better baking apples.  Made my apple roast the other day with the Honeycrisp, but put it in the crockpot instead of the oven. Came up with this 6-7 yrs ago.  And there's even a picture of it, since words give you so much difficulty, leech.            Reb's  Apple- pork roast


        One boneless 2-3 lb Pork Butt Roast Two cups  Fresh Apple Cider Rosemary Seasoned salt Black pepper to taste 4 oz Cinnamon Apple Sauce (These are the “Snak Pak” size cups) One  large Yellow Onion, sliced thin              Marinate the roast in the cider in a Zip-Loc bag, in the fridge, for 6-8 hours, turning frequently. Place roast in a greased baking dish, with some of the marinade. Sprinkle liberally with seasonings and lightly with the Rosemary.  Place thin layer of onions on top. Pour apple sauce over top. Put in a 300* oven for 45 mns to one hour, uncovered.  Cover and cook  for30- 45 mns- longer or until meat thermometer registers 155-160*. Do not overcook. Let sit covered for 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!  
    • @RebelSS, do you recommend any specific type of apples?
    • I forgot to put in the segment winners Spring        Juneau4 Summer     Henry's Heroes Playoff        BlackLundProV
    • Well quit hijacking the thread!!! we'll find someone serious sooner or later!
    • They can explain that over and over and I’m not buying it. I changed my ducer to the 12 like my 18. 
    • So your trying to work out the picture problem-right?
    • You might want to throw that on the C/list since by the time we are done, you may just have to give it away. Or tow it out to the woods with that heavy support rope!
