      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 .

New Fish Trap II shell?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone:

I've got a USL Fish Trap II that's given great service, but the canvas shell (also called the tent) is wearing out and torn from hard use.

Question is, can I get a replacement one that fits it in the new ice armor fabric? Do the shells/tents for a Guide fit a Trap II?

USL's Web site is no help on the topic. Would really like a new one, but guess I could go buy some light canvas and cajole the wife into winding up the sewing machine.

Catfish, I purchased a replacement for my trap 2 last year direct from the company. You should have a tag inside your tent with the company name and phone no. As I recall they are in Plymouth mn and the replacement cost is $150.

Strikemaster,
I think you can upgrade to the new material.I replaced mine last year with the old type material. As I recall I inquired about the new material and it was more money. I paid $150 for the old style. The distibutor is in plymouth Mn. If you look inside your trap you should have a white tag with the name & phone of the distributor.

Hello there. I replaced my old canvas with the new ice-armour nylon. It's a little loose but I could probably get it tighter if I dinked with it some more. You won't be able to use your front spreader bar. This was replaced with a adjustable rear spreader. You'll need to drill a hole for this, not a big deal. If you don't feel a need for the door ask for last year's model. It will be cheaper. I'm not sure how much they go for. The company's name is USL and they are located in Plymouth. I work there that's why I don't know any prices for replacement parts (mine was free). Their websit is www.uslproducts.com. the phone# for customer service should be there. If you need some help or have any questions feel free to e-mail me at Czarniecki2@aol.com. Good luck

      I'll also be up this weekend. Fishing Friday and Saturday and putting the boat away on Sunday. Where are people finding the eyes and what are they biting on? Jigs, rigs, slip bobers? I don't do led core or jigging raps. I'll be on Daisy Bay, so any place from Big to Frazer is in play. Thanks!

      I went hunting with river rat this morning. I got two drake woodies and Chris got one. Finn was being a pain in the butt and would not fetch Chris’s duck. Finn however fetched both of my ducks. Finn flushed a bunch of woodcocks on our walk out. Finn got muddy today

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though
