      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Paint jobs on some Jakes

Recommended Posts

Here is some paint jobs I did on some Jakes. Put a epoxy over them and going to test them to make sure they still run the way I want them to. Just picked some colors that thought would work, and one my 4 year old liked.







Sanded down a couple of Jackpots and Suicks and going to try and get those done before I head up to LotW in a couple weeks.

I painted a few last year, and took them trolling on LotW and had good results on most. I had somewhat of a problem with paint adhesion. I've been using Createx water based air brush paint, and covered them with just a clearcoat rattle can. Some would peel off and some lasted well. So trying epoxy to see how that holds up, just need to check that they still run "right" and hold up to banging rocks.

The colors are mostly new other than the black top with silver body....that one caught 4 in as many hours before I lost it in the rocks :-(

The rattle can clearcoats just don't hold up. There are many better options out there but most require some type of turner to get an even coat. Try a search for clearcoats and some option should come up as it's been discussed a few times here.
