      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 .

? about 2 man Fish Trap.

Question

My buddy has a two man fish trap and the tarp got attacked by mice. He's wondering if it's possible to buy just the tarp and attach it to the sled himself and if so, any ideas on how much a new tarp would cost? Does the fish trap people even sell just the tarps?

USL (makers of the Fish Traps) apparently will sell/replace covers.
You can also have them custom made by some "canvas" crafters around town. Check the yellow pages...

If you bother to have it custom made, you can really do it right by adding a sky-light window, and a D shaped door, which is definitely the way to go.......

Do you have the Fish Trap II or the Fish Trap Guide? USL no longer makes tents for the II, which was replaced by the Guide.

The dimensions are slightly different, but USL told me a Guide tent would work on my II (the Guide tent is just a bit bigger). I passed, opting to patch for a few dollars rather than spend the big money. When I asked last winter, the Guide tent ran $170 new from a Duluth/Superior retail outlet.

Any canvas sewing tent and awning place can replicate your canvas cover if you bring it in. And they can use whatever weight canvas or other fabric you want. Not sure about price.

One thing about the Guide tent vs the Trap II is the Guide has that ice armor fabric, which is a lot tougher than the Trap II canvas and very light. Also, the Guide has a zipper door that the II does not, which makes it nice to get in and out without breaking the snow seal on the bottom of the tent.

Good luck.

    •  If you want a sweet and fruity wine --Stay away from those that are made of flowers (dandelion, clover ect.) You can make wine out of just about anything, It all depends on the flavor you want.  Sugar water and yeast fermented makes the alcohol, the rest is for flavor.   Flowers make a dry wine, some of the best dry wine I ever made was from dandelions (blossoms only) and it takes lots of blossoms to make a gallon of that. If you have access to wild plums- go for it and I think you will enjoy. Yeast is important- get the wine yeast, ordinary yeast is killed way before the fermentation should be done. Do some research and you'll screw up on some ,but learn in the process. It's all trial and a lot of error.                             Good Luck --Just like cooking on a grill --experiment.
    •   Dave, head over to "Our Lady of the Prairie" this Sunday. You can get free Wine! 
    • The JV squad has a steady supply fermenting over in Silly Town Some guys on our floor in college made rhubarb and Dandelion wine in the dorm. It was not good. 
    • Anyone here make their own wine?    I have been doing a little research on the process and plan to give it a shot this year. One of our favorite wines is Redass Rhubarb from Hill City SD and we like other fruit wines. My wife likes anything fruity and sweet. It may take me a while to dial in a few internet recipes to something we like but that's part of the fun.   I think I would try making some now but I think I would have to turn up our thermostat to get through the fermentation. It appears that a temp of 70-75 is necessary and our house is usually 62-68 this time of the year.
    •   I think that's exactly what I should have done. It would have probably reached me sooner. 
    • I'm thinking of selling my IceGator and going with the Strikemaster. Looking at the Strikemaster, it is not as bulky and heavy. The IceGator does cut ice like butter, especially with a Strikemaster 224 bit!
    •   The default temp is 360 for the NuWave 36001 Brio I mentioned above, but it can be programmed as high as 390. I absolutely agree that it does make a difference for certain things to get those extra 30-40 degrees.
    • yes i did i messaged him directly outside of the post
    • Looks like the Hawks might be without Crawford the rest of the season.   http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2018/01/16/report-blackhawks-concerned-crawford-could-miss-remainder-of-season/
    • We use a line voltage thermostat, with it set in the "cool" position.  Once it hits the set temp the thermostat kicks the fan on, until it gets below the set point.  Works pretty well.
