      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.

    • If i'm not mistaken i believe the older 5 and the new chirp use different transducers.  Assuming you are looking at purchasing the ice transducer.  In my opinion the Humminbird page is horrible.  They do not explain things very well in their descriptions.  Just an FYI that the ice pack they offer with the XL-9-20 transducer does come with the power adapter to hook to the battery but does not include the battery and charger.
    • I too am planning on rigging a Helix for the ice.  I have both an older generation 5 and and a gen 2 Helix 7 chirp.  So I would like to know if the gen 2 7 would be that much more advanced for using on the ice than the first gen 5 or would the 5 do the same job for me?  I am also trying to decide if I should but a carrier for it or make something.
    •  thinkin this over i post an ocassional pic of smoked, fried, or pickled fish and the TIP line gets posted..................... not posting no more pics!!!!!!!!!
    • Not sure if this will help...... https://www.sbnation.com/2017/9/7/16171262/nfl-without-cable-tv-cord-cutting-streaming-online-how-to-watch
    •  We might have gotten enough cold before snow to freeze the bogs too.
    •    Used to be you had to plug in your car or you weren't going anywhere.  Frost plug heaters vary from 400-1000 watts or think of 4-10 100 watt incandescent light bulbs left on 24-7.  I wouldn't be able to sleep at night.    Its money wasted and using resources we should be cutting back on. As far as damaging anything, you'll burn out the heater sooner and are a pain to replace.   Can't prove it but I think your creating an environment internally and externally for condensation to the engine.  There is a benefit to the engine having been warmed but frost plug heaters really aren't intended to be plugged in 24-7, a couple hours is all you need.   Its not likely your going to wake up 2 hours early and go outside to plug in the car when its -30.   If you had a set schedule you could put the heater on a timer to turn on an hour or two and use the remote start 5 minutes before you leave.   Otherwise plug it in at night before you go to bed.
    • Does anyone have any good tips on streaming both ESPN and NFL Network? I can get ESPN on Hulu Live ($44/mo) but it doesn't look like they have NFLN. On Sling, ESPN is on Orange but NFLN is on Blue so I would need to get both which would be $40/mo. On Playstation Vue I can get both with their Core plan ($45/mo). Although I haven't tried, I'm guessing that I can't get this through our Xboxes, which is what we use on 3 of our TV's, so if I went this route I would need to buy some additional Roku's (what we use on our other TV's). Directv Now (their no satellite streaming service) ($35/mo) has ESPN but doesn't appear to have NFLN.  
    • No doubt, it rarely works out like Staal. Koivu was extended for a little too much but he just has a great year and is still super valuable to this team. We just have no one to replace him, trading for a high end center is just about impossible without giving up way too much or taking a big risk on a player. Ideally he will be our 3rd line center as he ages so I'm not worried about him on the team, we just need Ek to step up at some point in the next year or three and become a 50 point center or better.

      Lucky to get two points last night, we had no business getting the win but I will take anything we can get. 
    • I have been contemplating it but haven't yet. The cost has been holding me back. I currently have Hulu's no commercial plan for $11.99 and if I went live I would want the no commercials live plan which is $43.99. Then if you want more than 50 hours of DVR (and the ability to fast forward through commercials) it is an additional $14.99. More than 2 screens at a time is also an additional $14.99. (You can get both for $20/mo).  If you are not an existing customer you can try it for 7 days free. Unfortunately I can't since I am an existing customer (which led to a lively discussion with one of their customer service reps).
