      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 .

odor problem in my fish trap pro

Recommended Posts

I just bought a used Fish Trap Pro that's about 6 years old & used very little. The tarp looks like new. But I think this guy had it stored in or near a dairy barn. It doesn't smell like manure but like chemicals related to milking. Anyways, I have washed this thing 2 times w/ soap & water, dried it, had a fan on it for 2 days & airing out for 3 days. It still smells.

I know bleach works for mildew.

Is there anything you guys have tried that works for odor removal that won't damage the tarp?

If all else fails you should try some Odoban. It got rid of the mice urine in my portable after I had tried every soap and cleaner that I could find on the market.

Mix 1 quart of 2% hydrogen peroxide with a cup of baking soda and mix thoroughly. After the chemicals are done reacting put it in a spray bottle and hose down the portable with it, and let it sit for an hour or two and then rinse it. I orginally came across a variation of this forumula for removing skunk smell from dogs. I've used it to great effect on all sorts of nasty smells. You might try a small section of your porty before doing the whole thing. I don't think it will damage the tarp, but it could possibly fade the color. I know guys that use this formula instead of scent killer and their camo looks fine.

We found it at Sam's club but when you buy it there it is by the gallon. I would think that a Fleet Farm or a good hardware store would stock it and in a smaller size. It works great on cat urine.

I second the odoban product. It works. I store mine folded up in the garage with a few dryer sheets...someone told me it would keep mice away...don't know about that but I've never had a mice problem...but it does smell nice when I open it up.
