      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 .

MY EYES ARE FALLING OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Okay, so here's what happened...I was reeling in a rock bass last night and after I put the dumb thing back in the water, I looked at the top 2 eyelets on my rod. The insides of both eyelets came out. I got more fish after that with no problem but is there a way of replacing them or do I need a new rod all together?

I had the same thing happen to me... but it wasn't a fish that did it. It was my 4 yr old son banging my rod against the metal basketball pole in the driveway.

(leave them unsupervised for a second and look what happens - ha ha)

I took it to a local rod builder and he only charged me $5 per eye. He even replaced the broken ceramic eyes with new titanium ones.

Now all my rods hang up high horizontal on the garage wall, to avoid tempting my son again...

But check with your local rod builders in your area and see what they can do for ya...

If the eyes are in good shape yet, get some clear epoxy and super glue.

Put the eyes back in with a drop of super glue to hold them in place then take a fine paint brush and apply a ring of epoxy around it and the metal ring of the eye.

Lay the rod horizontal to dry but you'll have to rotate it several times to keep an epoxy "drip" from forming.

Try Midwest rod and reel in Prior lake, they will take great care of you...

I should've checked this earlier. I just was up in Prior Lake last night. That would've been an easy one then
