      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 .

Fleet Farm, in the carpet area. I think it's marine, indoor/outdoor for sure.

Fleet farm sells carpet? I never knew that or would of even thought that. Is there any difference from marine carpet to indoor/outdoor carpet?

Cabelas website shows various choices and grades of it. Was looking for the kid who wants to carpet a 8 X 16 he acquired.

Looked like about $150 for that size & quality he needs.

** any of the house mfgr's will have it as well**

I told my son to measure out the cuts he needs and approach one of them to cut it out for him. Buy the adhesive to secure it and just roll out the pre-cut carpet !!

Menards carries the base grade indoor/outdoor stuff as well but its not the grade of marine or the texture.

Marine carpet comes in variable piles and grades just like normal carpet. Obviously the lower per ln ft cost the cheaper the look and quality.

I'm sure Cabelas or anywhere has a onsite sample of everything they stock or can order.

Fish house manufactures pretty much use on of two or three grades but I doubt they carry or stock numerous variety other then samples.

So unless you are looking for some "high dollar" stuff you will see what you mainly see in most manufactured fish houses & boats. I had a low cut tight weave with padding in a house and it was great stuff. Ceiling fan kept it dry @ all times if it got soaked some how. But I know this was not your average middle of the road application either for marine carpet.

Not sure if you have a Gander Mountain out your way or not they have it stock......you should seriously consider vinyl or brush on flooring....

My boat has marine vinyl on the floor and it still looks great after 10 yrs. of a lot of use. Does,nt retain any water, just runs right off. Also cleans up nicely!

Hallberg marine carried carpet a year ago. I have not needed carpet again, but, I would bet that they have your color, unless it is not a popular color you are trying to get.

      Thanks snowfighter. Coming up Dec 9 weekend.my brother took some fish outta little turtle the weekend of Oct 7 th. Sounds like from your end of the lake. Seen pics, some decent pike.

      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!

      don't  give them any ideas!

       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.

      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
