      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 .

My online searches are only coming up with shower curtains. I need curtain panels for smaller windows, Mossy Oak or Advantage prefered. I'd rather find already made panels, I know nothing about sewing.

Single? Or can't convince the wife that sewing curtains for the ice shack is important? grin.gif

I have found many sources on the internet that sell camo fabric in all the popular camo patterns. But then you'll have to figure out a way to sew them together.

Use camo drapes instead of camo curtains for your search on the internet. You will have better results.

I think drapes are gathered with the hook and close & open with the sliding track via pulling a cord.

Curtains use a rod. The curtains would get threaded through the rod.

Maybe I got that backwards, I don't know.

Buy material twice width of your window the make your own.

Or you could go with the swag look and not even do any sewing. Use a big ring at each corner of the top of the window. Slide you camo threw both of rings and let hang.

Use a seer curtain for that layered look.

Worse thing that could happen is you have a bunch of camo for duck hunting.

This reminds me of a buddy that wanted a camo orange hunting suit but was too cheap to buy one. First he sewed orange pants and top and then added round blotches of green, black and brown. He looked like a clown. ROTFLMAO.

Yes I'm looking for curtains not drapes. I want to use a plain rod not hooks. These are for the new deer shack, perhaps I should contact Ice Castle they have camo curtains.

If you go to Michael's or JoAnn Fabrics they have camo fabric you can buy by the yard. They may know of some people that sew by the hour of something, that is where I would start. I was in there looking for foam rubber to make a seat cushion and covered it in camo fabric and use it on the deer stand.

Aw heck, this will show my sensitive side wink.gif Go to Mills End Textile in Brooklyn Park (I think it is there, do a search) they have TONS of camo choices, good prices and helpful.

Then sew it yourself! It ain't rocket science smile.gif Actually, I worked as mosquito research biologist for about 5 years, and we would have to make our own traps, etc., some of them used humans as "bait" - so some traps were giant! You should have seen the ladies at JoAnn Fabric when a grizzly dirty looking young guy would go in and buy like 70 yards of bridal viel material! hahaha, that was what we used for mosquito trap netting, as you can't just goa nd buy mostquiot traps off the shelf wink.gif Hehe, it actually was kinda fun. I even sewed my own custom decoy bags once upon a time, but haven't touched a sewing machine in a few years now.

There... now you can send me back to the kitchen in bare feet wink.gif

Thanks for the tips. I'll give Mill end a try. I already tried Michaels and JoAnn but they only the generic camo. I'm looking for mossy oak or Advantage.

I am sorry, that is actually the place I meant to say - the Mills End was one nearby to me and I got mixed up. Thanks RiverWader, that is an important correction. HARRIS is the place.

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
