      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 .

Fish trap scout repair?

Recommended Posts

I purchased a new scout last year mid year and the second time I had it out the lazer blade on the auger hit it and sliced a slit in the tarp. It's about 3" long. Boy those lazer blades are sharp. It barely touched the thing and it sliced right thru. Anyway do any of you fine gentlemen/women know of any good repair methods for the tarp material of the scout? Is there a kit that can be purchased? I would like to get it taken care of before first ice. Thanks for any tips.

The iron on patches will work for awhile. Put one on each side. I've also used duct tape on both sides if the cut is small enough. Again, on both sides.

Call Clam Corp and they can send out a patch that is 6 - 8 inches square. Then go to the local hardare store and pick up 3M spray glue i bought the 90 stuff but they say you can use the 77.

No, I purchased it at a local hardware store. Many stores carry it and it works well. I also used a repair kit from Canvas Craft and that also was a quality kit for repair jobs.

I've had EXCELLENT success with a product called Tear-Mender. It is a liquid that you spread on both surfaces to be patched and it bonds the two together. I used it to repair a hand-me-down Frabill with multiple burns, cuts, wears on the canvas. The stuff works and has shown no signs of peeling/lifting. The only problem I can see is finding a fabric that matches... Perhaps Clam has some for purchase.

Clam corp sent out the patch kit at no charge. This was around a month ago not sure if they will still do that, but it is worth a call.
