      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

Ha Ha

    • Yeah, it's not BigDave for nothing there fella!
    • It's dinner and supper!
    • My wife loooves Beets. Here's my recipe Lot of beets, as many as you can fit in to a large boiling pan. .add 1 cup draino .add 1 cup muriatic acid .heat with a blow torch throw off hwy over pass so they get tender under semi truck tries for one hour. Then go get some food and have a Beer! Enjoy! Hate um!      
    • The guy who told me this said teal were in big groups and he saw a few hundred
    • Just cuz they're flying that direction don't mean the migration started!   Summer-like temps again this year for the opener.  I don't think they're bugging out yet.  Last year I saw teal in NE MN in the 3rd week of October! I have enough shells and some calls I suck at blowing, along with decoys that sport my initials and '87 so I guess I'm as ready as every other year!
    • Never heard of one where ya DON'T cook the beets....but who knows? Here's one I used years ago... EASY PICKLED BEETS (1 Quart) 2 bunches small beets – ends trimmed and scrubbed 4 small onions – sliced and separate rings ½ cup liquid from boiled beets ½ cup white vinegar ½ cup honey – go local! ¼ teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon cinnamon or cinnamon stick ¼ teaspoon cloves Bring beets and enough water to cover to a boil over high heat.  Reduce to medium and continue to boil for 45 minutes.  With 5 minutes remaining on beets add onion slices.  Drain beets and onions, reserving ½ cup of the liquid, set aside. While the beets and onions cool add beet liquid, vinegar, honey, salt, cinnamon, and cloves to medium sauce pan and bring to a boil. Peel beets (this should be easy once they are cooled), and slice.  Add sliced beets and onions to a Mason jar, or air tight container of your choosing.  Cover beets with boiled liquid, cover, and refrigerate at least 24 hours before eating.  I prefer them after about 72 hours.  
    • If that's lunch, I'd love to see dinner!! 
    • We can't find our recipe for pickled beets. Haven't done this for a couple of years.  Wife and I both certain we didn't cook the beets.....we just packed them in hot jars, poured the brine over, then boiled the sealed jars for 15-20 minutes.  I can't find a recipe that says you don't have to cook beets.  Does any one have such a recipe?  Our brine contained cinnamon sticks and cloves.  I imagine we could just add these ingredients to any regular vinegar/sugar/water brine though.  Mostly just wondering about using raw beats vs uncooked beets.  Thanks...Jim
    • Looks good, for sure.
