      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 .

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.

      No see-ums were munchin us pretty bad this weekend on a canoe trip too.  Skeeters and flies were not too bad.

      I went out for duck opener near Milaca and it was sweltering HOT.  It was even cloudy/drizzly for a portion of the morning and it was still unbearable.  The DNR needs to move all these major hunting season openers back a week.  Its pretty obvious that fall is getting hotter and hotter.  We got 6 ducks and 2 geese but so it was at least a somewhat decent hunt but that didn't make up for the fact that it was like hunting in Louisiana.

      +1 on the Smooth Moves.  I installed them on my 1860 Ranger last spring and couldn't be happier with the performance in big water.  Lot's of adjustment and they do a great job of soaking up the rough stuff.  They are a little bulky compared to the other options, but I like the fact that they rely on a mechanical adjustment rather than air.  It would be interesting to sample them side by side in the same boat to really see if one is smoother than the other.  A friend of mine has the Wave Pro and he is happy with that also.  I was close to getting the air wave, but I'm happy I went with the Smooth Moves and would buy them again over the other two.  Good luck with your decision.  No matter which way you go, your back will be happy!

      I am still fishing mostly lindys with minnows but getting a few on jig/minnows also. We boated 13 walleyes and 7 jumbo perch this morning. Largest walleye was 21" . Most came out of 24' to 38' depths, close to rocks. Cliff

      Fished Saturday morning and trolled my way a half dozen eyes including a fat 26” plus two giant smallmouth.  Went back out Saturday evening put the trolling rods down and went Jig rappin.  Caught another 6-7 fish including another nice 26+ that popped off as I fumbled to grab the net as it wallowed around next to the boat. Tricky bite for me.  Still managed my limit of nice 16” fish.  Fishing mainly rock transitions and rock structure in 16-22’ fow.   I will be back in two weeks for my final hurrah before heading west to the mountains.

      One goose and one woodie so far today.  And will probably be our total count.  Saw plenty of birds but in a new spot we didn't have dialed in until the end of the morning flights.
