      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 .

deep woods off *40*

Recommended Posts

I typically use 29 but 40 was all that they had so I bought some.

The skitoes were terrible. The 29 worked well so I thought the

40 would be better.

***WARNING***

40 is too strong.

On friday I put some where I typically do. On my cheeks and on the back of

my neck. It stung all day but I ignored it. Friday night i had huge blotches on my face and neck where I put it and it still burned.

On saturday I smartened up and put it only on my hat and on my clothing on my shoulders. I developed breathing problems later in the day. This stuff is just too dang strong. I took my cap off on the way back to the car so I could breath.

i've found that just letting the bugs bite you works pretty well smile

i usually react quite a bit early in the season then I barely notice it after that. I'd rather have a few bug bites than put some poison on me

What about 100% Deet.. now that sh*t is killer.. talk about poison...

PS: i hear dryer sheets work great as a repellent.. never tried it personally

I always use Repel 40 when the bugs are really bad and I've never noticed and reactions to it...other than the lack of bugs within 10 feet of you. That stuff is great!

My brothers are surveyors for the BLM and in the summer they get issued 100% DEET, not safe for use on skin, they use it on their hats and clothing. They say it works pretty well but the bugs still get bad.

I haven't used bug spray in about two years now, and the mosquitoes don't bother me except for the first week or two they're out, after that they either aren't biting me or I just don't have a reaction from the bites. Helps with fishing, too because DEET is pretty effective at repelling everything, bugs included.
