      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

nauticaljohn

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?

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe

      There were 5 maybe 6 boats over at the resort Thursday - Sunday. Heard they were doing some hunting too. Pretty quiet on the bay, most of the docks & lifts are out. Probably going to get real quiet after you show up.

      1) Lumen (lm) Lumen is the international(SI) unit of luminous flux, a measure of overall light emitted by a light source. 2) Candela (cd) Candela is the international(SI) unit of luminous intensity, a measure of light emitted by a light source in a particular direction.
      Any given light source will have different luminous intensities in different directions considered.
      [candela = lumen/solid angle] 3) Beam Angle [Unit : degree] Beam angle is the angle between two directions for which the luminous intensity is 50% of the maximum intensity as measured in a plan through the nominal beam center-line. The beam angle of a lamp gives an idea of how the light beam spread away form the beam center. 4) LUX (lx) Lux is the international(SI) unit of illuminance, a measure of light arriving at a surface, 1 lumen per square foot equals 1 foot-candle, while 1 lumen per square meter equals 1 lux.
      [lux = lumen/m2] 5) Color Temperature / Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) A black-Body radiator will have different color when it is heated up to different temperature(in kelvin). The temperature at which the heated black-body radiator matches the color of the light source is the color temperature of the light source. 6) Color Rendering Index (CR) Color rendering index, ranged from 0-100, measures a light source's ability to reproduce the color of various objects being lit by reference light source, black body radiator (CRI=100) 7) Efficacy (lm/W) Efficacy is the efficacy of a light source to convert electricity power to light expressed in lumen output per unit power input (watt)
      [Efficacy = lumen / wattage] 8) Dimming Not all lighting products are designed for dimming function. None-dimming LED lighting product will cause unpredictable result and may affect the life time of the products. The below figure shows the typical input current variation while adjusting the DC voltage input to dimming and none-dimming product.

      I will check it out a little latter. It looks like a good idea. I do a small diamond wrap on a lot of my ice rods.

      I'm gonna go but not before some of these crops get harvested.  It may not be until Thanksgiving but at least I'll increase my odds if I wait for a better chance of success.

      This is the insulated model. 8x8. If anyone wants it this week I'll let it go for 240.00. Won't  find a better deal!
