      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 .

Mid-priced Sunglasses

Recommended Posts

I don't even know what is sold in that price range? :-) The $12 - $15 igogs or fisheyes at gander I think work great.

The only thing I could recommend is to see if Costa Del Mar makes something in that price range. May be a bit high end...but they could make something $75 - $100...

I agree with the cheaper ones. I don't know how many times I've lost or broken expensive sunglasses. I bought a cheap gas station pair and haven't been able to get rid of them for 4 years now!

I agree with the Costa Del Mars. I've used them and they are nice.

You might want to check out Bolle sunglasses as they have some models with nice polarized lenses. You'll find them online in your price range, and I've had good luck with them.

I've got Costa del Mars and they are great. I don't think she's looking to spend quite that much.

One thing I have noticed since I've stepped up to good glasses, I am much more careful with them.

I'm a cheap guy too.

I have a brand new pair of Titanium Maui Jims sitting here that I've never worn due to the fact that I know I'll trash them.

I was a cheap sunglasses user because I was always concerned with breaking them, but now that I have a pair of Costas I'm in the same boat as RW. I'm very careful with them.

I second this. I found a nice pair of Bolle polarized for just under $100.

I have H20 Optics glasses- they have been great and I think were around $50. Good quality lenses and construction and they handle a beating. Try a search for them and they should come up. Good luck.

Check sierra trading post online. Many of the brands mentioned already are available at significant savings. You can find a real good pair in the price range you're looking for.

Natives were about the only brand I could find that would fit my big head without digging into the sides. AND - they have interchangeable lenses....which is nice.

I ordered a set from REI for $50. Not sure if they have them anymore....they retail most places for about 120 bones or more depending on model.

I had a pair of PolarEyes and you can get them at Cabelas. They are on the lower end of your price range but they are very nice. I lost my pair and I upgraded to Oakleys. I don't know why but I felt like a change. My current pair fits me like a glove, thats why oakleys are nice. lots of different shapes and sizes.

    • I know they drum quite a bit in the spring but I've been hearing drumming this fall. I'm not hearing as many as I do in the spring. But I'm sure hearing a good number of them drum  Are they  searching for a mate in the fall?
    • I was out 2 weeks ago around Duluth and saw a smaller buck either a 6 or small 8 pointer chasing a doe.  She wanted nothing to do with him.  I'll be back out this Sunday and Monday hoping to see a bit more activity. 
    • Thanks Hoey.  At that price I think I will just go with the foam board insulation.  It's such a small area left to insulate and that way I can avoid the mess and the headaches.  Plus I will be able to get it a full 2-3/4" thick throughout. My next project I think may be to replace the dinette table with a jackknife couch.  Any idea how long those come?  The longest I've seen so far is 72" which to me sounds too short for me to sleep on comfortably since I'm over 6' tall.  Does anyone carry bigger sizes, or do most people build them so they sleep with their head on the armrests?
    • They make mounts where the TV sits out a little further and you can mount a couple smaller appliances to the mount behind the TV with straps.  Not an option for some as the TV may stick out a few more inches but worth considering if you don't want a separate cabinet. 
    • picked up another 4.5lber last night at costco gonna give it another shot this weekend. @rl_sd they still had few others in the 4-7lb range left in the pile  I haven't seen any other places locally that have smaller ones like those.  
    • saw a few combines out last night taking beans out on my way home from work. Took dog for a run and saw a couple more. Based on the ruts left in the field probably going to be a while yet before they really get going on harvest. Ground is still pretty wet and soft. We are supposed to get more rain this weekend in the eastern half of the state so hopefully they get get a bunch of stuff out of the fields these next couple of days. I have heard that in the northern areas, brown county, potter county etc where the drought was really bad they probably wont even harvest and just leave a lot of stuff in the fields until insurance can look at it. Those that have something to harvest got just enough rain late in the season that they may be able to salvage something but don't see them harvesting anytime soon. Good luck to those going out this weekend I probably wont end up going. I just prefer cooler temps mainly for the dog. I shot 3 birds earlier this week so scratched the itch. I am gonna get things done around the house and wait for more crops to come out and cooler temps before I really start hitting it hard. 
    • I would also bleed them before storing in an ice box.
    • So many beautiful carps! Keep them coming
    • Heard about this trick before.
