      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 .

Gulp Alive! Liquid

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if the stuff in the tubs is the same as the stuff in the spray bottles. I would like to just get a spray bottle and put all of my bags into one jar, but I don't want to accidentally ruin 5-6 new bags of Gulp.

I am not sure if it is the same stuff, but am guessing it would not ruin your Gulp!s if you stored them in it. But, again, I am just guessing. Contact Berkley, they should be able to give you the official ruling.

I just looked at that Gulp Alive today. $20 for a tub. Seems kind of spendy. I will still probably try it though.

Hopefully they have improved the lids on the tubs, last year I bought 2 tubs and if they were not perfectely level the liquid would leak out of the top.

The $20 or $40 per tub does seem high, but I think they say the tubs are the equivalent of 3 or 6 bags of Gulp. I've never counted though, even though I have a few tubs (and many bag) or gulp products. And I agree with jeepguy, try to keep those tubs sealed and level or you'll have a mess.

Price comes out to be real close to buying the equivalent amount of bags. Stick with the bags until you know if you are going to go use it that much. I do believe they changed the lids. I have a bucket from two years ago and one from last year and no problem with the newer one.

I bought one of the tubs last year and it leaked all over the place, so I started buying more bags. I was thinking of getting something with a more reliable seal and just put all of my bags into it and add more of the liquid. I just couldn't find anything with a wide enough lid and a reliable enough seal, though I didn't really look all that hard.

The tubs fit perfectly inside those plastic Folgers coffee tubs. Can be a pain taking it in and out, but at least the mess is contained.

No problem, Fishdale. That's one of the reasons I love these boards. Someone has probably experienced the problem I am having and has found a simple solution. We are all helping each other out.

Buy two tubs now and you can get a Gulp! bag to store them in, or do what I did and get some rubbermaid containers with a screw on top to store them in.

I am going to use Lock n Lock plastic containers to store my Gulp leeches. They are a snap lid with flanges and a silicone seal,and guaranteed not to leak and lifetime warranty. They come in all different sizes and shapes, round cylinder, squares and rectangles. They are food safe and float. I use them all the time in my kitchen for food storage. Walmart, Target, internet. They are g..ood!

    • Uhhhhh... I for one am at a complete loss for words.
    • Here is a project for you when fishing gets slow.  
    • I've never been to Boone's but I would think that Ahlman's Gun Shop down by Waterville might be similar and another possible resource.
    • Was able to get out these last couple weeks a couple times to enjoy the waterfowl before most of them left for good. Surprisingly was able to find a couple sea ducks on back to back weekends. The harlequin was a first for me in MN and the Long Tail was the second of my life.  Young long tail days before this lake froze over. Hen Harlequin below the St. Cloud darn couple weeks ago. American blackduck - may have some slight mallard mixed in with it as I noticed some green on its head from certain angles. widgeon picture I liked the colors with. This was taken early November.  
    • Hey, I just started mine and did about 5 circles around the yard just to smell some exhaust!
    • Wow. That's like a dictionary.
    • I downloaded and printed the manual. Worth it. It does so many things it would take years to fumble through to find shortcuts and fine tune without it. 
    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.
