      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 .

Going bathroom while fishing

Recommended Posts

Just wondering what everyone does if they have to take a leak. I was out last weekend and had to go but wasnt going to when there were kids running all over the place-I waited till dusk and walked near shore by some trees.

we went to red lake in a wheel house, and brought the portable to use as a bathroom. I have the toilet seat that fits on a 5gal bucket. Everyone uses their own bag of course. Nice place to lose some weight, especially after the morning breakfast.

Did the same thing yesterday. You don't want to in front of kids. I think I set a world record on holding it. On a lake at night you can't see a thing though. Just remember where you went when you pack up, wouldn't want to slip!

A couple of Decembers ago at LOW, it was a beautiful sunny day, so my girlfriend and I took a little stroll to stretch out legs. One of the other houses in the area had a few brown logs about 2' outside their door!!

Brown logs-thats nasty! Brought a water bottle with today. I was fishing on Chisago once with some guys, one guy took a leak down his hole,then 5 minutes later scooped water out of the same hole to cook brats on his mister cooker! I went hungry that night!

What in the world made you tell us that. I could have gone three life times and not heard that story. I hope you found new fishing partners.

Cook the brats in beer!! Fish, birds, turtles, and microscopic organisms do not wear diapers. Usually only female astronauts that are too busy to stop at a gas station do. Don't cook with lake water. If you have to, bring it to a good boil first. Giardia is a nasty little critter.

Yea, I bring bottles with me if I'm going to cook. If you are going to cook with that water, then yes, boil it and then boil it some more. I would recomend against it though.

Man oh man if your old enough to type on the pc and of at least the age of 13 to be on this site then that part of life you should have already figgered out , but here comes my answer just because you seem to have to know how and where I clear my system while out on the lake .

Although I try not to expose my privates to anyone most days when you gotta go you gotta go and I'm not going to leak into the wind so cover your womens and kids eyes if a facility is not readily available . I'll try and miss you though if your on the downwind side if it's a stream . wink

As far as number 2, well a bag will do, and it gets hauled off the ice to the nearest dumpster or garbage can .

Geesh what a thread . Someone has too much time on their hands .

my dad told me a similiar story. he was out hunting with a bunch of guys, and after making a long drive one guy was really thisty so he used the home made bailing can to scoop some water out of the lake. what he didnt know that just a few minutes earlier another guy ( fellow hunter ) peed in it.

For #1 buy one of those flexible/extendable gutter attachments and extend it out under the flap of the portable. For #2 I'd go with the plastic grocery bag liner in a 5 gal pail. Don't forget the paper tho.

When my brother took his young son, 3-4years, ice fishing for the first time, he wouldn't go potty on the lake. Neither inside, outside, in a can or pail or anything. He was trained in a bathroom! No amount of bribing or talking worked. He ended up taking him home,lucky there were only 5 miles from lake. We laugh about it now -30 years later but its something you young dads need to consider when getting the little ones out there on the lake.

    • The 30 is a log to have to carry constantly but sure is nice to have to keep the bait lively!  I went last night and purchased another pump in order to plug into the wall...$13 and all I have to do is move the tube from one pump and connect to the other.  I am seeing if I can easily keep minnows alive from one weekend to the next.
    • Wow, someone else who actually watched the video and figured out what Williams did. Thanks @nofishfisherman.   It should never have gotten to that. The Vikings have got to keep playing to win for 4 quarters.   Playing to protect a lead can get you into trouble much faster than it's likely to help.
    • The mistake was getting there too early, clearly if he had continued with his tackle he would have been there way too early and would have an easy PI call against him.  Had he gotten a PI call then no matter what happened after that the vikings would have had a shot at kicking a field goal because a game can't end on a defensive penalty.  By avoiding the penalty he at least forced Diggs to make the catch and avoid any other tacklers.  In most cases the WR is going to catch that ball and get out of bounds right away no matter what. It was just the perfect mix of circumstances for Diggs to take it for a TD.  Had Diggs simply been facing a different direction after the catch he wouldn't have seen he had a clear path to the end zone and would have likely stepped out of bounds to stop the clock. Had Williams not taken out the other DB he may have been in position to make a tackle or at least be close enough to perhaps make Diggs think the best option is to run out of bounds instead of risk getting tackled in bounds.    What I found more puzzling is the overall defense from the Saints.  I've seen it broken down a few times and they had several players guarding against short passes to the middle of the field.  That vikings had no time outs and needed at least 20 yards, the Saints should have been inviting them to through short into the middle of the field not actively trying to take it away.  It appeared the entire play was a complete mental breakdown by the Saints.  It will go down as a great play by the Vikings, and it was, but it was made possible by some pretty big mistakes by the Saints defensive play calling and a single mental breakdown by Williams. 
    • Has anybody found this particular color of rattl'n flyer recently, i am down to my last 2 and i havent been able to find them in pushing 2 years.    
    • Good deal! Did you leave the ice coned up to help keep a seal?
    • Update: took the shack out this weekend had reflectix and fans blowing in the holes and they stayed open in the -20 windchills 
    •   I also saw a picture with Blair Walsh's face on Marcus Williams as he is missing the tackle.........wide left. 
    • Copied from FB:   A friend of mine has two tickets for the 2018 Super Bowl, both box seats. He paid $2,500 each but he didn't realize last year when he bought them, it was going to be on the same day as his wedding. If you are interested, he is looking for someone to take his place...It's at St Christopher’s Church, in Edina, Minnesota, at 3pm. Her name is Samantha, she's 5'4", about 145 lbs, good cook too.....She'll be the one in the white dress.
      (Feel free to copy and paste, to keep the laughter going!)
    • The saints player was probably running to where the ball should have been thrown. That throw was 2 yards onto the field, should have been closer to the sideline. It would have been a pretty easy tackle to keep him in bounds and the game is over.. Nothing wrong with a little luck on our side. I thought the refs were terrible all game. Lots of questionable and no calls. That last no call when Theilen got mugged was ridiculous...
