      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 .

Cargo Netting

Recommended Posts

Want to add some cargo netting to the bow of my boat. Have seen a few posts in the past concerning this but can't locate them. I would like to get some locally and really don't want to spend an arm and a leg.

Anyone know where I can get some?

Hi Paul, I got mine out of my wife's trunk(shhhhhh, it is our secret!). It fits my boat really well. I think the nets out of gm vehicles are pretty standard and my boat is a 16 foot lund, if that helps. Are you still in WI? Going down to pool 4 Sunday, you welcome to come if you are around.

Check in the children's section of a Target or K-Mart. They have it there for attaching to a stroller to hold toys. The wife picked a few of these up a year or 2 ago. Don't know the exact cost but may be worth a shot. Oh you may also want to check Walmart, they tend to be cheaper on most things. Otherwise hit a junk yard.

Paul, as far as mounting goes, use the round black cable holder that are made with the screw hole(they have them at most stores, in the electrical department(fleetfarm, hardware stores, maybe walmart). I think this is a better system then even the ones that the lund dealer uses they are smaller and look better.

Paul,
Since I did not want to pay the “Genmar” prices for this item, I took the advice from the previous thread regarding cargo nets and looked into various retailers:
Auto & truck parts stores, Target, boating accessory shops and ATV accessory suppliers.
Most places do have some form of netting that can be fashioned to fit boats. However, I found, the best fitting and reasonably priced nets available from Cabela’s. They also come with the necessary hardware. Marine Man is correct: spring catolog has them.

Paul, Mills Fleet Farm just got some in for 23 bucks a net that includes the hardware. They are specifically designed for the boat.

    • I love my custom Adam Bricker rods.  The guy just makes rods that look, feel, and preform well. Plus he has some really great options like a rod butt that pops out the back with a fish hook remover. You can also get the option of being able to change out blanks if you want. Which comes in handy if a guy goes from panfishing to walleyes. Plus he stands behind his work. The guy is an artist when it comes to building rods not only with looks, but preformance & function. Nothing else comes close to what he builds. With that being said, I do consider them a luxury item.   I have a slight addiction and have about 50 open water rods and 40 ice fishing rods, that range from cheap to expensive.  rl_sd pretty much said it all though. For $30 or less a guy can get a solid ice rod combo that preforms just fine. One of my favorite ice rods is a south bend Rod and reel combo I picked up for $25. It has an 8 ball Bering reel and a ML Rod that works well for perch and walleye.
