      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 .

Check with an autobody supplier, NAPA, Auto Value O'Reillys, Keystone etc. 3M makes a line of adheisives that range from ridged to flexible. Spendy, but if if does the job, well worth it. You kind of get what you pay for.

This is what Canvas Craft sold to me but it is available at other stores but if push comes to shove you can always order it from them. It works very fast compared to the cement that you have to apply to both sides and wait a half hour. You might have to wait 2 or 3 min. and I did apply it to both sides but the set up time is quick and it holds great. I had a lot of mice damage so I went thru 2 tubes before I had it patched the way I wanted.

jimalm thank you I'll try our local fleet supply store.It is not the farm but in some ways better.

Also off topic I am coming up there to get my kids fish house on sand lake and my cousin is coming up there in a couple weeks for the late season ducks. Sand lake,bowstring,cutfoot fish??

And is there a duck population up there or not?

Thanks again.

The fish in Cutfoot are feeding pretty good right now but I would think that most all of the ones you mentioned would be good. I have the boat winterized and I am getting ready for next weekend so no fishing till ice.

Menards does have some 3M product but not the kind I'm talking about. This is the line of product that we use to install body panels on vehicles. It's so strong that the metal will tear before the adheisive lets go.
