      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 .

I am looking for a bed liner for my truck and was wondering if anyone has used it and what you think of it. Any opinions/advise would be much appreciated.

Thanks

I had a Line-X spray in liner done on my truck. It is the best!

I did the Herculiner on my Silverado and it worked great, it is very easy to put on and it only costs around $50. I have abused it quite a bit and it's held up great with no cracks or chips at all. I'm going to use it to repaint my boat trailer if it ever starts getting rusted out. Save the $300 and buy some more fishing equipment

I also did the herculiner on my truck and it looks great and also has held up great too. I did use the UV protectant. I would recommend using that because it will fade without it. I have also used the duplicolor brand bed liner and that stuff sucks half of it had flaked off within 2 years and I followed the directions to a T.

Do it yourself, not as hard as you would think. Give yourself about 2 hrs and read destructions and you'll be happy.

I depends on how you use your truck. If you are hauling stuff all the time you might want Rino or Line-x. I put it in my truck last year and it has held up pretty good. I usally always have something in my box to. It was way worth the money to me $50 as compared to around $500 for Rino or Line-x. It was very easy to install they had great instructions on Herculiners web page. It fools all the boys at work they all think that I have a spray in. Two of my buddies and I all did ours last spring and I positive that none of us regreted it. In my mind the only people that need to us Line-x or Rino are contractors. I bet about 80% of those that have their trucks rinoed or line-x don't need it and herculiner would be just fine. I was a very satisfied customer of herculiner.

Thank you all for the responses. I think that I will try the Herculiner and spend the rest of the money on a new tonneau cover.
One more question on the Herculiner though.

I had originally planned on putting in a bed mat because I didn't want anything to slide around. Is the Herculiner soft/tacky so things don't slide around too much?

Stuff in the back of your truck won't slide around at all, it is very tacky. When you apply the material the first coat is very thin, after it is dry, the second coat can be dabbed on much thicker. I used an old paint brush, the roller they supply didn't work that well for me. I found it easier to just dab the stuff on. Prep work and good taping is vital for the whole project to turn out well.

OK so I might be little dumb when it comes to this. What is the difference between line-x,rinno and hercliner? Was recommended to me to put the stuff on the leaky roof of my fishhouse. Is that the same stuff as "rubber paint"?

I have a alumacraft lunker and put some herculiner on the flat part back by the motor. Man it works like a charm. I have had more comments about that than anything else on the boat. Opps I have shared a secret.

      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?

      Thank you one and all, especially you Tommy. Some very kind words and ditto to you my friend. "Ace" "It's just fishing man"

      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

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!
