      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 .

Portable Carpet Ideas

Recommended Posts

Guest

Hey everyone,

I have a Clam Jr portable. It's a 4x6 with a hard plastic bottom. In the past I've cut a piece of carpet to fit the floor and laid it on the bottom when I was fishing. The problem is that it's a pain when it gets wet and then freezes. I'm looking for ideas to attach marine carpet to the bottom, has anyone done this? I have some good quality carpet I used in my boat and I could cut it to fit the floor in the portable but I'm worried about it pulling up. Any ideas?

There is outdoor carpet glue at places like Menards. I glued outdoor carpet on the folk's sidewalk and it held up nicely for several years. Actually, the carpet wore before the glue let go. Maybe could work for your use.

Saremma,
I am thinking about doing the same. One idea that I have is if you are not planning on moving around alot within your house then maybe just get a 18 X 12 piece of wood and put your carpet on it. This will keep you feet of the plastic flooring and put some morre insulation between your feet and the ice. Just a thought.

Try Velcro. Good stuff Eh!

You can get industrial grade Velcro at most craft stores in bulk. As long as the surface is clean and dry when you stick it on, your set to stick anything to anything.

If you use carpet your going to want to ge able to remove it from time to time to dry it out.

I have used a rear floor mat from a SUV and stuck Velcro on the back and on the sled, no slip and easy to dooch off if it gets slimmed up. (A salvage yard is handy to find the mats)

What I now like even better is styrofoam as it will not get hooks stuck in it. What I found is carpet always gets a dam hook in it, that ticks me off. Your gear rattles around less, it is lighter, and you soak up no water. Any water you get in the sled will turn to ice and form up in the channels below the foam and you just shake it out or dump it.
