      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.

My Line-X is still going strong after 7 years.

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.

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.
