      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 .

Boat Lettering

Recommended Posts

Da Beak

Does anybody have any suggestions on who will do, or where I can get decent lettering for our new boat in the Metro Area?

I've seen some very nice registration lettering on some boats out there, and I was just wondering where I could get it done at.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. We pick it up in 2 weeks. laugh.gif

Some boat dealers also do custom lettering. You could also check with area printing shops and check the yellow pages. Most any decal/lettering shop can print out nicer decals and they can also apply those for you also. If you purchase them and have them shipped to you, they are pretty easy to apply.

If you look in approx 1 week, Fishing Minnesota will have new decals online to order for your boat if you are looking for some additional lettering.

The new HSO-Hot Spot Outdoors and the Fishing MInnesota decal look pretty nice.

I've had very good luck with Fast Signs - they have nice varieties and good pricing.

I like lettertech, they have a multitude of colors and styles and the turnaround is less than a week. Just do the www.lettertech thing and it will show up.

Agree with lettertech, I've used them for years and they have all the fonts and colors you would need to match or look good with your boat.

How about Sign*A*Rama. I had to mention them since I spent a few years under the roof of the Roseville Location, but there are locations across the metro. I had the Woodbury location make my boat lettering nothing fancy but I had them made with white reflective vinyl.

FastSign is another option. Plenty of location all over.

Any sign shop that does vinyl lettering will be able to take care of you. If you have never been to one I would suggest stopping in to see what they have to offer. The amount of choices are just about endless and only restricted but your imagination and pocket book!

Fastsigns or lettertech. I've used them both with good results.

      Thanks for the reply. Ya, McNally's gets pounded right away. I looked at the ice in front of Schafer's in Onalaska yesterday; there was about 3.5" of ice near the docks, and then it got thinner in a hurry. Apparently someone got wet feet there earlier in the day.  I ended up at Lawrence Lake Marina just north of Brownsville yesterday. There was probably 4" of good clear ice, much better than what I found in  La Crosse. Will post pictures later, but I got one nice largemouth on a tip up at the Marina, one 10" perch, and a couple small perch.  Today I drove around Winona, and fished the backwater pond east of Latsch Island on the west side of the road. The ice there was...not real good.  I stuck close to shore on 3" of not-real-clear ice after my spud bar saved me from a cold bath a little farther out.  I caught a few small perch there, and a bunch of small bluegills. Nothing worth keeping, and nothing on the tip-up. Was expecting the ice to be a little better than what I found, but what do you do?

      Roughly 11inches... there were a few brave people who drove mini vans out

      @leech~~ There was all of 10 inches where I was but I’d say it was a tick more.

      Hey all, I am looking to catch a decent perch in the 7" or bigger range and soon because in my class at school we get to taxidermy a fish and I would like to do a yellow perch, I have fished little Pulaski for 2 days and Buffalo for one and caught nothing on Buffalo lake and some bluegills and bass on little pulaski. Anyone got advice on spots in little Pulaski or Buffalo lake or just another lake near by Buffalo as well for perch? Thanks - jim
