      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 .

Fish gloves - what works, what doesn't?

Recommended Posts

My dog chewed up my Lindy glove a couple of years ago, smelled like a snack I guess... And I'm wondering what others have had experience with that doesn't cost another $25. My main reason for wanting to use the glove is walleye/pike fishing in Canada - my hands were cracked, cut, and sore for a week after I got back last time. I was thinking of looking at something to possibly leave on while fishing as well as not having to worry about gills, fins, etc.

Anyway, would love to hear your comments about what you have tried.

I have a pair of gloves I picked up for about 3.95 at WM. I think the brand is laker or something. They are cloth gloves with some sort of rubberized coating. Work great for catfish wranglin', should be fine to protect you from sharp gill plates and whatnot.

Not a fan of Wally but we used some work gloves that had an open weave to them and some little beads that helped grip things - cost may $5. They were made of some sort of poly material and would dry out fairly fast. Wouldn't fish with them but would try to get them on when netting/handling.

I used to bring a bottle of hydrogen peroxide along on the Canada trips. By about day 3 the cuts were getting to be a bit of a hassle if I didn't use the gloves enough. Washing the hands in the evening a couple of times with the hyrdogen peroxide would knock down the inflamation.
