      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 .

100% Deet Bug Spray.

Recommended Posts

Does 100% deet bug spray really work better and last longer then other bug sprays?

I have heard from friends that said they just sprayed a little on there close and they didn't have a misquetoe on them for 2 whole days!

But I am not to sure about that so I wanted to check with so more reliable sources.

I have never seen it in a spray but have seen it in roll on. You dont want it on your skin or on your face so I dont see what good it is. I have had good luck with 29 percent deet. For biting flies you will need either Avons skin so soft or offs skin tastic sun screen cream.

100% DEET works, I just don't like the oily film of any bug dope.

I normally use 3M Ultrathon cream or spray. Seems to work well enough without too much stink or nasty film.

Years ago I had a can of the Amway bug spray that was supposedly 100% Deet. The stuff felt like it was actually burning your skin after spraying it on. I don't know if it was really 100% Deet, but I quit using it after experiencing the burning sensation!

Irvingdog is right on the money here. Nothing more than marketing hype to double the cost of their product. 32.5% is at max. effectiveness---anything higher is just nonsense.

eh, just man up and deal with em wink

I just usually wear long pants and shirt and a hat. My .02 is I'd rather deal with some bugs than put some nasty smelling potentially toxic bug juice on my skin. Though I did wear Off! the other day (first time in 12 or 15 years I wore bug repellent) and it seemed to work some

3M Ultrathon, when you can find it. It is in a bright yellow can, this is the stuff that for the first 5-10 years it was made you couldnt find it cuz the military bought it all up. Works like a charm and doesnt stink like other bug sprays do

I have a bottle of the 100% in my tackle box. I have never used it, but after reading this I may try to mix it with some good lotion and see how that works. Something like 1 part DEET to 2 parts lotion??? Worth a shot I suppose.

There is some new stuff out that is called picardin. Brought it up to Canada on a fly in and the stuff works great, not greasy and doesnt smell bad. Give it a try

I remember years ago my uncle got a box of personal sized bottles. Everyone stopped using it because it's toxic. We found the box sometime later and the DEET had eaten holes through the plastic and soaked into the box! I'd recommend 3M Ultrathon, it seems to work and like mentioned you hardly even know you've put it on.

I use Maxi DEET, which is 100% deet. Me and my buddies use it a lot while out in the field on maneuvers, especially up at Camp Ripley, but if you use it, no bugs will come close to you. If your gonna use it, spray it on your clothes and use a weaker bug spray on your skin.

    • adding a cheap bass cannon would help for sure. make sure you connect your wires correctly plus to plus from speaker to stereo, usually the copper colored wire or the wire that has a white strip on it is used for the positive, this helps you so you do correctly connect the speaker to the amp or radio. Right to right left out to left. Check balance setting on radio, check treb and bass setting start off at 50% and raise your bass setting while lowering your treb setting. I like a lot of bass so I am usually at 80% bass and 50% treb. Check to make sure you don't have cracked covers on your speaker's. You can also make small speaker boxes to put your speakers in and pack them loosely with insulation to give you more bass and direct your music out the front, if you are a little handy making a box.  Ya I have played around with speakers I have my entire house wired and the last time I counted 19 speakers in my place not counting another 10 for two surround sound systems.
    • Well kind of back to guns, I have been looking to buy a .22 pellet rife for the varmint's around here. a gun but not the kind you guys are talking about  I think.
    • I would not plug it in 24/7 no need. an hour before you need it should be enough, not even cold enough to think about plugging something in when it is above zero out. you just need  a good battery. 2013 it is not even an old truck and the block heater is heating the engine which is not what warms the truck up when you start it anyway
    • I have a 2013 F150 that sits most of the week because I have a company provided car. I would like to keep it plugged in most of the time not because I'm worried about it not starting but because it warms up much quicker. Does anyone have any idea about whether or not keeping the block heater plugged in all the time would damage anything?
    • I'd agree........I'd like those who feel otherwise explain to me why a proview would even come close to a tri beam.
    • Some even think Christianity is to blame for crime in America.......  
    • Could also be the speaker... if you installled just a tweeter, then you aren’t going to get any bass. You want a two or three way speaker to give you the full range.  As mentioned... it could also be the radio setting
    • I think your GVW has to be 3000 lbs or less to get a lifetime license.
    • Assuming you are in MN... You are Going to have to have a weight slip as well.... over 3500# means you need a regular license plate instead of a lifetime. Also need brakes
