      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 .

Getting the "goo" from stickers off

Recommended Posts

Hi All

I tryed searching this forum's archive to see if this had been discussed previously - but got no hits....

I just bought a pickup and topper, and the hatch on the topper (window) has some stickers I want to remove - and the glue. I don't want to leave any residue which will attract dirt. The sticker looks like it will peel off.

I also don't know if the window is glass or some sort of plastic - so I want to make sure the cleaner won't cause the window to
fog or haze.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

UG

I think WD-40 works good for this kind of job unless someone knows better.

There are products that remove that stuff. When I bought my house the previous owners must have had a stake in 3M. They used stick on hangers for everything. We used a product called Goof-off. Worked great.

What has worked best for me is to heat the sticker up with a hair dryer and then peel it off. Remove any remaining adhesive with WD-40 like above.

There is some stuff called Goo Gone that you can buy in the cleaning supplies section of the grocery store that can take off all kinds of sticky stuff. Comes in a plastic bottle, and is a yellow liquid. I started using it years ago when the kids put some crayons in the washload - all white - several Dad dress shirts - Dad fuming....

I've had good success in removing stickers from all sorts of unlikely places with this stuff, so that's my vote.

Bug and Tar remover, soak up the glue area, let it sit and use a plastic putty spreader or something like that and it will come off nicely, you might want to try it on a small spot on the window, I don't think it will hurt but you might want to make sure first.

A little gas on a rag works, too.

Citristrip, Un-Do, Un-Du. Ad-Med, 3M, ReMove, Uni-Solv, DeStix ...

I was in a pinch last night and used gasoline. It worked excellent on removing the leftover glue.

Goo gone is good, but the best I've found is called UNISOLVE. You can find it at medical supply stores.
The stuff is used by hospitals to remove the sticky glue left after removing bandages so it's non toxic (I think).
When I ran a computer depot that refurbed PC's we'd get equipment back with stickers all over them and with a heat gun and a little uni-solve soaked in we could get any label/sticker and the glue off.

Try a single edge razor after peeling the decal off, use a hair drier to heat the decal and peel it off first. Mike

It's a little expensive but graffiti remover works great! Not shure on actual brand names but you can pick it up at most paint stores.
This is the only thing I have found that will take off the bugs that are cemented to your bumper and license plate after a long nights haul to a lake.

Isopropyl alcohol and a single edge razor will work. We use it when we are taking labels off of stuff in the lab. The higher the % of alcohol the better (99% rather than 70%) or nail polish remover will also work.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )
