      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 .

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.

    • Wild playing very well in all facets of the game right now...fun to watch...Toronto is no slouch even without Matthews.
    • And if you went to Italy, they have all that stuff that is bitter.  It is a matter of taste for sure.   BTW, hops is (or was) added to beer as a preservative as well as a flavor.   Personally I don't care for that weird stuff, but do like an IPA on occasion, or a Grain Belt for old time's sake.   
    • Yes. And if you got to the southwest part of the country they have some of the best wine on the planet as well. I was introduced to German beer there in the 80's and it was a learning experience. Bars with room temp kegs and either Dunkel or Licht beer. They know how to do it right.
    • I haven't seen that happen in the collagen casings I have used but if it seems to be an issue maybe try vacuum sealing any left over casings until the next time.
    • I hear ya Dave !  I spent close to 3 years in Germany and drank a lot of different brands of German beer and never had anything taste as bad as an IPA. In our town of around 100,000 we had 3 breweries and if you went 20 miles to another town the odds are you would not find the any of the 3 beers but completely different breweries. 3 beers always for the most part...Weitzen (wheat), Weise ( Normal) and Pils and all only had 4 ingredients and no preservatives. 
    • Mine lasted 5 years, then broke on the lake, but I got two new ones the week before. Lucked out I guess.
    • That's because this is the cooking thread and not Silly Town. Plenty of whining be-oches to argue with over there all day!
    • You guys must have a nicer wife than I've got. By the end of the day I'm worn out from arguing with her and come here for a break. Seems like the opposite on here sometimes. 
    • Yes, we buy the spray cans of olive oil,canola or whatever. I personally haven't tried fish but with breaded chicken I'm not a big fan. It works great when I make wings and non battered chicken. Just my personal experience.
    • That is a thing of beauty. I am speechless and if you know me........
