      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 .

Clam Travel cover fix.

Recommended Posts

Was getting tired of buying new travel covers for my Voyager because the metal brackets keep cutting holes in them on long trips.

Picked up some heavy fabric from a fabric store in Brooklyn Park and some heavy thread and for about $3.00 in fabric and some choice words from my seamstress (wife)! :angry:

I saved about $65 on a new cover and this one should last me a few years now. :)

 

Not sure why Clam has not added gussets on their covers like this other then the cost would go up. It will be nice not looking in my rear view mirror the whole trip waiting for my cover to rip to shreds on the trailer!

Looks real nice leech! Same with my Eskimo cover those are renforced but there's some small tears starting.

 

That fabric I bought was a blend of some kind of Poly & Kevlar they said, so it maybe the last thing still around in a few years! :lol:

 Hopefully! I may have to grab some of that don't want to wait to long or it won't be a "cover" any more.

I bought a cheap pool noodle and just cut that up into chunks and then made it slit to slide it on that part to fit the edges. Bought a whole pack of them for a couple bucks and they last pretty long.

    • Preference.  120 is towards the rare side.  I do 129.   Great deal on Anova circulators at anovaculinary.com (and probably amazon as well)  I have the cheap one, bluetooth 800 watts. Anyway, here is a writeup about cooking salmon.   A few degrees make a big difference.   http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2016/08/sous-vide-salmon-recipe.html Get one and try it.  You will love it.   Makes cooking nice stuff easy and reliable.   They don't cost a lot.   Right now the Anova  is 109 for the bluetooth one and 129 for wifi.   Control it manually or use an app on your phone.   I just do it manually.  
    • I don’t think this would fly with most of the people I eat most dinners with but it just might with two of the better cooks I know. I’m one who prefers my food cooked JUST enough instead of killing it all over again.  This interests me.
    • Doesn’t everyone have spare crutches in the shed?
    • after it comes out an rests it is another story, in my book... it's sweated out...   and the smoke is good on ya!!!
    • the 120 bothers me....
    • Hey roony I seen that in the meme thread;!
    • Great read! https://www.outdoorhub.com/reviews/2017/11/22/k-drill-auger-milwaukee-tool-m18-fuel-drill-ice-fishing-game-changer/ With the 9amp Red lithium batts it's a ice gobbling machine!
    • When you start slicing some up see if your hands get the smoky  smell on them. Part of the reason I ask is when you get summer sausage from a good meat shop like Schmidts down in Nicollet, MN,  it dose not leave the smell. Just makes me wonder if they use liquid smoke to keep the batches more consistent flavor wise and the skins clear of the smokey smell.
    • Easiest way to do that is sous vide.  Seal in bag, throw in 120 degree water.  Go watch tv and drink a beer or other beverage of your choice, come back when you are ready and it is perfect.    Wasting water?   Are you serious?   Of all the reasons, that is the worst.
