      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 .

Getting Snaps For My Boat Cover?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, our Lund has a snap-on cover, great, but some of the snaps are missing. Anyone have any idea where I can get more? I heard they sell kits of them, but I haven't seen any. Where can I get some?

Some hardware stores have them, marine dealers should be able to give you some or sell you some loose ones.

any crafting store will carry them, i made a custom cold front grille cover this winter and used the snap system, bought everything from the local crafts direct.

good old FF or a local hardware store will have them. I did my cover for my fishhawk with them. they come with the stamp to attach them and you can also by refil kits. the kit with the stamp was about $4, and the refils were about $2.50. that was for a set of 5 or six. it was a lot cheaper than ordering from the big box fishing store

They're all pretty standard size... and you should be able to judge it by looking at it. Otherwise measure the inteface part of the snap - that should get you close enough.

Canvas Plus in Rogers will put on new snaps for about a buck each, and if your covers other snaps are loose they will tighten them down. They will likely do it while you wait. They also sell kits with about 15 snaps for about $10.

Menards carries them ,,I lost 11 snaps the first year all with the help of my fishing partners,,, Now I spray a small amount of a dry lubrican like Hoppes #9 or Remoil dry lube (firearm lubricant) on the cover snap and havent lost as many since

    • In SD you can only buy one any weapon Black Hills tag in the spring.  There is a state-wide archery only tag that can be used out here as well.   Usually it is tough to get just one bird, so I don't buy an archery tag.   This year we planned on rock climbing after shooting turkeys, so we are kicking that off a little quicker than expected.   I do not believe it is possible to buy non-res over the counter tags, even though it is not a lottery, and buying online requires shipping to an address that takes a few days...   I also did not bring my bow, but if my uncle has a bow for me to use I might call game and fish to see if I can buy an archery tag in Rapid and hunt a bit each day before we go climbing.  
    • before...or after happy hour!!!!!!!!!
    • About as good as a day can get. Congrats to both of you. Your turn next pumper?
    • saw the first frog today!!!

    • What a difference a week makes! Even far northern Wisconsin is finally making it to spring. With temperatures in the 50s and 60s, snow is melting quickly in the Northwoods, although it isn't gone yet and it may be awhile before its gone in the woods. Northern lakes still have up to 2 feet of ice and it's looking at this point that some lakes will still be iced over when the general fishing season opens on May 5. SLIDE SHOW | 6 photosWhat a difference a week makes!With all the snowmelt, waterfalls have come to life. Last Friday both Big and Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park were completely ice covered, but with warmer temperatures, they both came to life. People were eager to see the transformation with more than 385 vehicles visiting the park over the weekend to view the falls. Both Forks of the Flambeau are also open now and their falls are roaring.As things are drying out, we're also moving into the spring wildfire season. In the last week 60 wildfires burned 129 acres in DNR Protection Areas. Half of the fires were caused by debris burning. Stay aware of fire danger and burning restrictions by searching the DNR page for keyword fire. .
