      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 .

home made duck blind help?

Recommended Posts

I have a great design for a boat duck blind, and it has made it through one year of use. Basically it is two different sizes of square aluminum tubing that slides into one another. There are holes drilled for pins that you can set the height. The only problem, and my question at hand is the clamps that I have fastened to the boat. I have searched and searched, and the best thing I could find was those clamps that hold truck toppers on. They just do not work that well. Its hard to get the frame screwed into the clamp. I would love some sort of clamp that I could put a nut and bolt through. You guys have any ideas where I can get a look at some random clamps used for various things. I checked fleet,northern tool, and many other hardware type stores.....thanks

My dad built me a blind for my boat several years ago that was a series of bent conduit pieces in the shape of squared C. Those pieces slid into bases that consisted of a slighty larger piece of conduit, a set screw to tension the top section in place, all mounted to a piece of PVC that snapped on the gunnel of the boat. The PVC piece had a channel cut into it that allowed to fit tightly over the gunnel.

Zeek, where do you live? I could show it to you if you were close to where I lived. Or, if I got super motivated and you were (or anyone) was interested, I could post some pictures. It's the best homemade blind I've had. And, I've tried a bunch of different setups.

I have it taken apart right now. I am looking for some good clamps. The clamps allow me to remove the blind. This is nice because every hunt for me does not involve a blind.
