      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 .

LMITOUT

Who's Pickin' Crawlers This Weekend??

Recommended Posts

How do you guys keep your Worms alive for future use. I suppose you need the worm bedding and a little effort is all. Do you feed them also?

I'll hang up and listen!

Thanks Pier!

I don't do anything special with mine......just keep them cool and moist in the Frabil worm bedding. Try to pull the dead or sickly looking ones out of the herd ASAP.

I did the same as Lmitout. Worm bedding and I put them in 6qt ice cream pails with holes punched in the top. I usualy have 3-5 pails in the fridge. I keep them for quite some time.

I have not feed them but have thought about it.

Im gonna try the worm food this year.The biggest problem always seems to be not searching the worm bedding good enough when picking out the dead ones,always seems to be a couple that die tucked tight in a corner.

It just wont rain here. I got a rubbermaid container in the fridge just waiting for some wormies. I had to buy some this week, $3.18 for 24! I use the ground newspaper bedding and I always put like coffee grounds, egg shells, grass clippings for food. We might get some rain Sunday and if so I plan to get some nightcrawlers. My wife asked what that huge thing in the bottom of the fridge was. I just said, 'Worm dirt.' She goes, 'I knew it'.

The SHOCK method dose work, but the life span of the crawlers is about 1 day...This may be ok if you catch them to use the next day. THE DEATH RATE IS HIGH........

I am now in the Grand Rapids area and the soil is very heavy here. If I started a compost pile would that draw the nightcrawlers? I don't seem to see many around.

I just got in after about 20 min of picking and nabbed about three dozen. They're out there tonight!

I bought some Fat and Sassy worm bedding today to see how that works. I usually use the stuff that looks like shredded newspaper and you add water to it. The F&S doesn't require water unless it really dries up, so we'll see.

    • $37 per year..... Or just find someone to buy you a 3-yr license for $42. Seem kinda goofy consider that stamps are the same price for both in-state and out-of-state  
    • Thanks for the info, I know most of us wheelhouse owners never got a license
    • Not sure why this posted three times and I can't delete any of them...
    • interesting read...
    •   A damper could be placed inline with the supply air duct to either mix outdoor air or recirculated return air, this is air going into the panel.  Modulate that damper with an actuator that is controlled by a simple temp sensor and modulating control, i.e. 0-10v signal.  
    • Had the soup last night and it was really good. The beans weren't too bad - I wouldn't say any mushier than they probably where right out of the can. Pretty similar to the texture of Bush's Baked Beans, so mushy, but I was worried they might be the consistency of refried beans after cooking on low call day in the crockpot. Going to try adding a little liquid smoke next time. That sounds like an interesting twist.
    • Anyone going up on the 8th? Rengel wants another shot at the prestigious Nord Lord title, and me too! And quickfishnoob. Pretty sure there's ice this time.
