      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 .

Best Aerated Bait Bucket?

Recommended Posts

This winter I'm going to invest in an aerated bucket as my minnows "kick the bucket" much too quickly.

Which bucket is the best. The frabill seems the nicest, but I've heard complaints about the motor dying. The Mr. Bubles type which mounts on the side of the bucket appears that it may freeze in the winter.

Which type do you suggest?

I have the frabil and the motor died on the second use...took it back and now the new one is having problems again. I have never had problems with minnows dieing in the winter months and I just used the foam bucket that fits in a five gallon bucket then when I get home I keep it in my entry way that stays around 50 degrees. I put a regular aerator in it and they are good to go for the next trip!

Ukalum, I got tired of picking up minnows in the bottom of the trap so I built one out of the 1.5 gallon drink kooler with the screw on top that has a nozzel for pouring your drink.I picked the kooler up at K-Mart. Its round and I put the MR.Bubbles under the handel. Two seasons and no problems. Hope this helps.

I was at a Distributor show and Frabill was set up next to my booth. They have a new Min-o-Life Station (#1404) that kind of looks like a small insulated cooler. Pull up the bait net, retrieve a minnow and your fingers don't get so cold I think it looks great. I gotta get one! ICE IS COMING, Bruce Mosher

All you have to use is a minnow bucket and stick a fish aqaurium air pump in it. I ahve kept mnnows alive from weekend to weekend. Throw in some bread crumbs every couple days and you are good to go.

    • No, but this is what I would get if I was there. 
    • Really? I told them I will Only Agree to one year if the discounts are for one year and no problem. About two years ago I did call Direct TV and they wouldn't throw a deal. So I canceled my service then left for the weekend. I came home called them and said dish didn't show up to put it in and asked if they wanted me back has a new customer or if I just needed to let dish install it. They flipped it back on and gave me the deal. You will never get the "deal" with the first person you talk to. You have to talk to at least 2 people and the second one always gives in. I could really care less which one I have, but learning the channel number lineup sucks big time. I had dish about 6yrs ago and what made me go to direct tv is I had my dish get out of line on the roof of my two story house. They were gonna charge me $50-$100 for a tech to come set it right so I'd get a signal. I left and went to direct....The games they play are stupid. 
    • Heard the teal started to move south from some friends fishing the Minnesota river. I hope some stuck around Princeton but I know there is some wood ducks around 
    • Dish Network is a little tufter to tune in. They use a skew to get both satellites that is why they are turned a little. I go through how much direct charges me every other year.  I just ask for someone in charge and they usually lower it to a satisfactory amount. Last time they lowered it to 52 something because I have AT&T phone so they cut it in half.        
    • That looks good. Don't pay no mind Dave to that instigator!!!
    • I am pretty much ready. Not sure where you guys are hunting but up here the weather looks really good. Cloudy, 50's, NW wind 5-10 MPH. Will be taking my son on his fist duck opener. I myself have not gone for many years so am actually quite excited for it. There are a few birds around so we should get a few. Will be hiking into a WPA that is a bit of a walk so crowds will not be an issue. Good chance we will have the pond to ourselves.
    • So, you're at Emma's for lunch?
    • Good luck folks!  
    • Yep, it's looking to be a warm one. I still have a bunch to get ready but i've got all day tomorrow to scout and prep.    Good Luck!
