      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 .

Zipper replacement?

Recommended Posts

Hecker

Any of you fine fokes know of anyone who could replace the zipper on my Eskimo Quick Flip II? Would also be nice to have a metal one. I'm not ready to spring for a otter yet.

South metro prefered but not necessary.

Thanks

Try a shoe repair place. I've had sleeping bags and the boat top zippers repaired at places like that.

About 5 or 6 years ago I had a tent zipper replaced at a military surplus company. I don't remember the name of it, but it was about 28th AV SE., one block North of University Av. (Next to the U of M campus). Check for military surplus in the yellow pages. Also there a one or two custom boat top/travel cover business's in the Savage/Shakopee area that may do it.

Send it in to Eskimo they had problems with them. My fishing partner got a new skin and poles sent to him when his zipper, window and pole snaps all busted in the 1st month of use.

As they say, You get what you pay for.

In the Duluth area I know all the tent and awning shops will do them. Like Duluth Tent and Awning and Proctor Canvas. I know they dont help you but you must have something simular in your neck of the woods.

Thanks for the advice! I dident even think of any of the mentioned places. I talked to Eskimo and a new skin would run about 2 Bills. "As they say, You get what you pay for." I knew what I was buyin. grin.gif So I would never be dissapointed.

Thank guys

I'll let you know who I went with.

Hecker, how long is your zipper ? I have some marine types but they are only 72" long and white color, but $ 1.75 each

I also have access to zippers that are used for ice houses. If you know how long it is I can see if I can get it for ya but you still have to go someplace to get it sewn in. Zipers are cheap its the labor that kills ya.

Sorry guys, I should have checked back sooner. Thanks for the zipper offers. I got it fixed for $25.00 they also patched up a few burn holes. I got alot better service than I was asking for anyway. I ended up at a boat cover place in Mound (permatop).

Thanks for the help

If it's a matter of the zipper not closing, it could easily be just the toggle. The inside gets worn and doesn't pull the teeth close enough together anymore. Like it was said, a pretty inexpensive repair for a canvas or shoe man. I had that happen on a tent once and Eureka sent me free toggles and I (er... my wife) did it pretty easily at home.

      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?

      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.

      Really no different than using your boat.  $14,000 fish house and $14.33/year is going to kill you?? What gets me is at the lake we are at in the summer, mostly out of state people in the campground and all of their boats, never leave that lake and they are all licensed out of state and not in MN.  That is a chunk of money the state does not see.

      Great news to hear! Hopefully it will make enough tonight and hope it isn't going to get as warm as they say. Fingers crossed!

      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?

      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.

      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.
