      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 .

Bug spray on graph

Recommended Posts

What's the best way to remove bug spray from my graph? Nothing on the screen, but the housing has white specks kind of all over the grey(it's a Lowrance unit).

Lowrance recommends windex WITHOUT ammonia for the screens... might work for the housing too? But what I have found works the best for water spots and pretty much anything on the screen and housing is running my finger under hot water, then put a TINY drop of dawn on my finger and rubbing the screen that way, (add hot water as needed).... dry by blotting with soft paper towel and buff clean with the lowrance buffing towel that came with your unit. I have had my 334 for 3 years and it looks brand new to me!

Good luck.

Bug spray and plastic generally don't mix well. Most of the time it pits plastics so I don't think ou can remove the spots. They are probably in the unit for good.

I agree with WG, the spots are permanent. I had them on one of my sonars too and never been able to remove them.

I learned to be careful when spraying since that incident

Try this stuff. I've used it on all kinds of things and I'll say it will get the spots off. It's silly how good Koala Plastic Polish works. I used it on my old 350A that I thought was hopeless, and ended up with a like new screen. It was hopeless berfore I tried it, and it worked.

Be happy you just got the over spray on the housing, not the screen. The screen will stain permanently when exposed to insect sprays. Most all sprays can damage screens, be cautious.

If I use any bug spray in a boat, I make a point to cover my electronics with a rag or even my hat....just in case.

I was a big sceptic (the developer is my SIL, I had to be) at first but have taken ALL the scratches off of the crystal on my watch(Omega, buy a crystal once), Made my old Gibson ES 350T look factory new and fresh, Took ALL of the haze off my 350A screen when it was 6 years old and made it look good as new, I guarentee you there was bug spray, Taken a lot scratches off of auto paint, I've cleaned head and tailights that looked like they were sand blasted to crystal clear. It has worked for me bunches. Every time I've used it has been a "what have I got to lose" situation.

Thanks for the info, brother. Could you please pm me the actual product name the administrators deleted? Thanks a ton - I need some help here.

And administrators, FM policy, in this case, prevents good information from being shared among members. He's not trying to sell the product, just telling us that product X worked on his screen to remove scratches and bug spray damage - it seems as though it would be fairly innocuous to let the product name stand in this case. Sure, policy is policy, but in terms of shutting down good info shared among members, the policy really does us no good in a simple exchange of info like this.

Constrictive Criticism: I have to agree with the above on policy. It would be nice to see this policy changed as most people are looking for information.

My Daughter just told me your order went out yesterday, take pics. I've used it by hand with an old cotton T-Shirt and with a buffing wheel.

I have used Meguires Plastic Polish with great results on LCD screens, you can find this in the auto parts section of big box stores, or automotive stores. But ....... I don't know if it should be used on the newer TFT screens.

I don't understand the how's or why's but it's my understanding that Meguires and the others fill very well but don't really repair. I tried a lot of stuff on my guitars years ago and none of the other "scratch repair" stuff worked right, the way I expected, I had to keep re applying to keep the look. The Koala Plastic Polish is different, it works better, Barry owned a body shop in a former life and that was when he developed it I think. Ya gotta know the guy, he should'a been a chemist.

    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
    • Big Dave most if not all pro contracts are paying you for what you have already done with the hope that you will continue to produce. Looking at todays contract Joe's is not to out of line for a future Hall of Famer
    • Great! He is finally earning a contract close to what he is being paid. 
    • thx.  directions are on the site below. just across river from college    http://www.munsingerclemens.com/the-gardens/munsinger-gardens 2 areas, up top and down by river
    • Free agency is far from a sure thing, if there are young centers out there (big if) you have to compete with maybe 10 or 20 other teams and pay way over what you should. You have control of nothing and are at the whims of a player everyone is chasing. Same with trades, very easy to swing and miss. By most account we were in on Ryan Johansen with the Preds but Columbus wanted Jones over Brodin and I don't blame them. 
    • Good stuff but time wiill tell. Not buying the "oh we might lose him as a UFA"...so what, with that kind of money we could buy just as good and younger to give us more of a future...which we desparately need to be thinking about.  Fletch is walking a tightrope and it is going to break IMO.
    • Come on BB, you are better than that. You as much as anyone know that ONE player doesn't make an NHL Team a Stanley Cup contender so why put that blame on him. Sure, a player like Crosby certainly helps, but we aren't talking about the money that Crosby is getting here either. Comparing Koivu's contracts to equivalent players with similar production is quite compelling. He has performed better than many of his peers for his current contract and with the lower AV of his new deal if he continues similar numbers it will be a bargain. I wasn't too happy about the NMC either, but I take that as a bargaining chip so CF didn't have to go with a longer term deal. 2 years is sufficient and I think it works well for both parties. You are right, there are many people out there with more knowledge about the market and what he could have gotten elsewhere and when it may have made sense to sign him, but the fact is you don't want to wait to sign him until after the season for if no other reason at all than to allow him to be a UFA and hear other offers. This will be my last post about the Koivu extension because clearly we don't see eye to eye on whether it made/makes sense, but I assure you there are a large number of "hockey minds" that are in agreement with me on this. Here is some afternoon reading for you: https://www.hockeywilderness.com/2017/9/20/16332552/mikko-koivu-contract-extension-minnesota-wild-criticism-overpaid-chuck-fletcher-cap-space
