      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 .

Here is the one I built. Nothing fancy but it gets the job done. Its on its 4th year, I am hoping to upgrade to a bigger boat in the next two years. The blind frame cost me less than $75. The fast grass can be bought or just tie on real grass. The height is adjustable and it only takes a few seconds to put up or drop down. I used burlap as a backer and a wind shield.

commander019 looks good. What type of material is the frame made out of. Did you come up with the design yourself or was it a kit.

Thanks

I designed it myself. Not much to it really. I just used 3/4" square stock, a little 1/4" flat stock and welded it together. I just screwed it to the top rail of the boat so it can be removed whenever. Its hinged with some bolts. I drilled several holes to make the height adjustable by placing hitch pins through whatever setting you want it at.

me too I believe...and the trailer looks just like ours too. Think our boat was made in the 50's though and the trailer is from the 70s. Got the whole package for $350 though so can't complain.

I think we're putting an new blind on this year also, so I'd appreciate the bracket pics also commander. Thanks a lot!

It is a 14' but I'm not sure of the make. Never paid attention to that!! blush.gif The blind frame I made. The boat and trailer was purchased as a package for around $300 years ago. That boat is a tank. It has broken ice and gotten us into some good late season shoots over the years.

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.

      Nice video Curt.  Looks like you are having way too much fun out there. Enjoy the time on the water.

      I will probably go out to my parents farm and set up in a pasture. The cattle have it mowed down pretty good. The geese seem tp pile in there pretty good. I won't hit it to hard, just get out a few times and hopefully get my son to get his first goose...

      I have really gone to line Gamma brand line. It is a copolymer. Soft like mono but abrasive resistant as well. I prefer it in #6 for game fish and #4 for panfish.... If I can't find it I fall back to trilene in XL.......
