      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 .

Portable house marking??

Recommended Posts

What do you guys use to mark your portables? I have a black Polar Sled. I have been trying to find a broad point white magic marker.

One option is to cut a stencil and spray paint it on.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Stencil would work but if you sold the house the buyer might not like so much.

You could get some self stick velcro and put 1" squares in four corners. Stick it on and then make a sign out of white or yellow fabric and do the same. Make two signs while your at it. Leave one black if and sell it with the house.

Or skip the Velcro and use safety pins on the corners.

What surface said is great!

If you are in a pinch and have to get out, cut out legal sized strip of cardboard out of a pop or beer case. Mark you lic. number with marker on that (cradboard size), or DNR # and safety pin that right on Porty.

The law says nothing about look-in pretty cool.gif

I just printed mine out from word. Use a real big font and have it spreed over a few pages. Tape them together and then I used shipping tape to laminate the front and back. Works pretty good. I also have a sleeve on the back of my house (you can get them at Fleet Farm) that it slides into.

I do kind of a combo of stuff here - My Eskimo Quickflip II has a clear sleeve on the front, so I cut cardboard to fit in it, then printed out my DNR numbers on a laser printer in big font, then used packing tape to completely seal that printout to the cardboard. It also has room for taping on a shelter license.... which I won't need anymore. smile.gif

What has worked great for me is "white-out"....typically used in offices to "erase" print. It has a ball point tip and dries very quickly. You should be able to find at places like Office Max., Target, etc.

Otherwise there are also "paint pens" (many colors) used in crafts, etc. I have not personally used such, but have to think that would fit the application.

Best of luck.

My Otter Lodge has a piece of clear plastic with 2" reflective numbers on it that fits inside the sleeve on the outside, and my Frabill 1 man has a piece of cardboard that I drew the letters on in marker and then covered it with packing tape to seal it. That one also fits in the sleeve provided on the outside.

Do the numbers need to be at any certin height? I know they need to be 2 inches tall but could I put the peel and stick numbers on my voyager sled? or does it need to be eye level or something?

      Wasn't sure, but I found it. looked like  you were cooking something on the grill.

      We were out near Taylors.  Couple boats and us and a pontoon and a pleasure boat cut right between us "sight seeing".  Blows my mind how they cut right between boats that are fairly close to each other fishing an area and cruise right through without a care in the world!  Del, I thought last year you figured out which place I had?

      Fuses are for fire protection. If you're willing to risk a fire in your boat if something goes awry, have at it. Your insurance company would be happy to have a good reason to keep all the premiums you've paid and refuse your claim. Hopefully no one will get injured or die in the fire.

      Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.

      Looking to get on some walleye and crappie this week, looks like mayflies were out in full force last night when I was on the lake. First year fishing this lake, where does a guy start?

      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were
