      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 .

No Reb.......never saw her! Far as we know she is still hanging out on the spot, waiting for Pinky to come strolling by for a treat!

Better pack the extra clothes!

Yes we moved fish, didn't even look at the water temp. Just threw the lures where Jonesi told me to throw them!!

I've seen that fish, the 56. Steve showed me when I was out with him and the following day I saw her 5-6 times lounging with 4-5 other muskies on a tiny weedpatch. Stupid big.

Rinc... I dont know how big she is... Steve keeps telling me hes gonna put me on the famous "SHE" that he always talks about... also telling me this n that about how much he hopes I'll get my first 55 incher...

10K... yeah Steve guided a customer to a PIG... 56.6x25 late July on Mille Lacs...

Bret... Oct 14th, not 16th... Thanks for the tips... Its just the mystique of Mille Lacs... it'll all turn on for no reason at all sooner or later...

On a side note... Hit French earlier today with no luck... it was a dead sea... unusual for me on French at this time of the year... hit all those spots that brought me luck last year but ZIP... water was SOOOO green looked like we could walk on it... but at least I got some practice in preparing for the Oct 14th Marathon... Sad thing is that I had a 7000iC3 replaced couple weeks ago... and that replacement crapped out on me tonite... *sigh*

Daiwa saltist is a 6.4:1 and is coming out with a levelwind, that might be worth waiting for.

the 700TE is awesome same price as the trinidad, but its got a levelwind, having both Reb, I love my levelwinds its quite nice, but once you get used to not having it its ok.

good luck

the jury is still out on Diawa... few has said that it doesnt cast too well... so I dont know...

as far as choices go... Im thinking about Trinidad/Torium 14, Daiwa Saltist (both levelwind and convential), Okuma Red Isis, and Shimano Calcutta 400/700TE...

I need to see Daiwa and Okuma in person before I'll decide...

Thanks!!!

Are complete sentences and the entire word that hard to type? Life in text is kind of a PITA to read...

that's actually pretty good. i have two brothers that aren't quite stone deaf, 1 is 80% both and the other is 70/90% left to right, and they don't even do as well. and matty if i remember is stone deaf. just fine matty, i understood it just fine.

I wasn't aware of that, sorry ole matty.

How does that effect typing? I'm not being sarcastic, i'd seriously like to know how being deaf impedes the ability to read/write coherently. I would think that if you were deaf or hard of hearing you'd be better at it. Maybe i'm wrong.

"Deaf people can do anything, except hear."

I'm deaf myself. we can read and write just fine. I do type that way as well when I'm using my pager to communicate with others. There's nothing wrong with that....There's alot of hearing people out there who do type that way like we do....It has nothing to do with our deafness.

Just because we can't hear doesnt mean we can't read or write coherently.

Everyone INCLUDING hearing people do have flaws when it comes to reading or writing. NO ONE IS PERFECT at typing or reading...

as peachy stated deaf people can do anything.

although my bros.could have tried harder, lol. one thing that hurt their ability, according to their specialist when they were younger, is sign language. when speaking sign ''the bear went into the woods and scratched on a tree'' is broken down to something like this...''bear went to woods scratched tree''.

then after learning that sentence structure using sign they had a harder time writing out ''correct'' sentence structure. no not every deaf person falls into that. but i know a few who have. remember i'm talking strictly about who i know or have contact with. i'm certainly not an expert on the deaf community and any strides made over the years may have addressed this.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.  
    • That's awesome. I gave mine a test last night and they weren't bright enough. I might have to order some bright lights from Amazon. 
    • Looking good! I also wanted reverse lights. I used some of the really bright light bars from Amazon on mine.  
    • I would fur it out another inch, then spray foam and finish to the furring strips.  No vapor barrier needed at that point.
    • Use 1x2 (actually 3/4"x1 1/2") PVC trim boards for firring strips on the face of studs. The PVC won't absorb any moisture and works well as a thermo break from the aluminum studs. They can be found at any of the big box lumber stores.
    • Moisture is likely condensing on the metal studs and being transferred to the paneling. Furring strips will probably be the best bet with metal studs. You can run them horizontal or vertical and then just attach the paneling to that. I personally wouldn't use a vapor barrier. Some guys do though. 
    • I have a 6.5x14 Ultra Shack. I'm guessing was built early 2000s. Had to tear apart interior walls due to moisture build up. Steel frame, with aluminum 1.5x1.5 or 1"x1" tube studs. Previously insulated with pink board foam between studs, with a thin quarter inch thick foam pad glued to the studs, then paneling glued over the top of it all. I'm thinking the issue was no vapor barrier? I have it all torn apart down to the studs. Wondering how I should finish it, use a vapor barrier such as poly? Or no vapor barrier? Any help is appreciated! Thanks!  -Nate
    • Check striker's page.  They have some of last years stuff onsale.
    • It's been awhile since I've had time to upload pictures. There has been a lot of progress made!  The siding is up and finished! The process was more difficult to manage with the bends and my lack of tape measure skill lol If i were to do the bends again I would make sure to order 2 sheets extra and order them at the length required to wrap the entire house. From the point on the nose all the way back to the middle of the rear wall. There ended up being vertical seams along the sides here, which in hind sight, isn't ideal.  One thing that i'm not sure I've noted is the bottom white trim. A lot of people use J- Channel on the bottom but you can order a trim called a step down. Which works awesome around the lower edges and doesn't fill up with ice and snow.  The trailer lights are all wired up and working. Seeing whats back behind these big trailers always drives me crazy so i bought the ones with reverse lights built in.  The maiden voyage was out into the parking lot and then back into the shop. It didn't fall apart so it was a success.  I took a few pictures of the bending process. It was a pretty simple setup. A big piece of angle aluminum secured between 2 - 2x4's with 2 clamps a bar and a big hammer worked really well. If you're going to do this make sure to add half of the rib height to whatever the measurement you're trying to hit is. And as i mentioned before, buy the length to wrap the house from the front point all the way to the middle of the rear wall.  We would clamp the bar down then hit it with the hammer to "break" the corrugations. Once they were broken it bent extremely easy.  We also got most of the lighting on the inside roughed in. I have 4 110 outlets and 2 USB plug ins for cell phone/misc charging. All of the lighting will run on 12V. I'm no engineer but, each of the lights in the picture draw 240mA so with them all on I'm thinking i'll get about 30 hours of run time on one battery. There will be 2 batteries for lighting and USB and a separate one for the heater so I should be ok for a weekend "off the grid". I'll have a generator as well to run the TV and other goodies which can charge the batteries as well.  I also picked up the material for the interior. Menard's is having their 11% sale until 10/21/17 and also a sale on their 5/16" Cedar tongue and groove. Between the two sales I got the price down to just under $1 per square foot. Apparently, they aren't stocking this specific Cedar anymore so I had to buy 3 different stores out of stock to get all that I needed. In the end I still didn't have enough to do the roof so i bought some Birch plywood to finish that part. I think a lighter ceiling will help the place feel a little bigger anyways. I got antsy last night and finished some of the cedar boards with Natural Finish Watco Danish Oil. It turned out to be the exact look I was going for. From what I've read i think finishing them all before installation is the way to go. Then once everything is up doing a quick coat of Danish to even everything out.  At this point i'm counting the Steps left to go instead of how many I have done! It's getting close to starting the fun part ( the interior). I'll keep everyone posted on the progress!
