      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 .

Spray in liner

Recommended Posts

huntnfish

What does everyone prefer for a spray in bed liner. We have Line-X and Rhino in town and they both seem to be the same as far as I can tell and both have a lifetime warranty. Does anyone know if one is better than the other?

Do a search on Fishing MN since it has been discussed before. I went with Line-X and it is fine after 3 years. It was the brand offered by the place that I got my topper from. It doesn't get a lot of abuse though.

I beat the crap out of my Rhino for 6 years, with tree stands, wood, chainsaws, augers, etc... I never ripped it or saw any of the sheet metal on the box. The only thing that happed was it faded pretty quick other than that it was rock solid...

I've also had Rhino for 5 years. No deep scratches or rips with lots of dirt/rock/compost hauled. Mine also faded from jet black to a dull black/gray after 1-2 years. I got it re-sprayed due to an accident and the same thing happened.

I will probably try Line-X next time because it seems to resist fading better. But I'm otherwise happy with the Rhino. Make sure you get it sprayed over the rail and on top of the tailgate as well.

I'm looking at a new truck and considering Line-X. Has anybody had their rocker panels, door jams, wheel wells, or fenders done? I'm also thinking about anding Ranchhand bumpers (front and rear) and was thinking of having them sprayed as well. I would appreciate any thoughts.

I put Line-X in my new truck three years ago...and hauled a ton of stuff. People always ask me if I ever put anything in the bed...because it still shinny black with no scrathes...so I am very happy so far.

It was 400.00 bucks to do my super-crew..and top rails.

I had the bottom and fenders of my drop down fish house done three years ago and still looks good, and no rock chips in the fenders.

I have a Vortex sprayed-in liner and I am very happy with it. I have had it on two trucks and both were pretty tough. I am not sure how it happened but on my previous truck, I or someone else threw something in the back hard and/or heavy enough to dent the wheel well and the liner never cracked/peeled/chipped.

I'm just a bit po'd because the doors on my Suburban are starting to rust out (just after the warrenty expires) so, I'm thinking of using line-x (new truck) on the rocker panels, lower part of the door as well as the door jamb (of couse making sure that any drain holes are left open) and then spraying the inside of the doors with cosmoline (developed to protect guns, artilery, and equipment being shipped to the pacific theater in WWII).

I have Line-X and love it. I've had it for 6 years and from snowmobiles to elk have been in the back and still looks as good as day one. Some friends of mine in CO had the rocker panels done as well as their rims. As my truck gets older, I am considering putting color matched Line-X on the rocker panels too.

Thanks to everyone for their help. I had the line-x done today and plan to put it to the test this weekend.

      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.

      Thanks for your input, I got myself setup with braid and a fluoro leader and its working great!

      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
