      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 .

poles for a portable

Question

Guys, I need help. I built my own portable because I just couldn't find anything out there that I liked. Anyway, I am all done except for the ends of the poles that go across, from end to end, on the inside that keep the two ends up. I have the poles, they slide out to length. But what can I get to put on the ends of the poles so I can clip them on the end poles? I have seen some sort of plastic clip on the ends in some portables. Is this something I can buy somewhere for mine? Ideas, hints?
Thanks,
John

I think what your looking for are closet rod cups, they come in pairs and can be found at any lumber/hardware store, you could also use a pc of wood with a hole the size of your rod, for one end then a U shaped cut pc for the other end, either way you go its the same process, one end in the hole the other slides in the cup.

If your connecting a vertical pole to a horizontal pole do this. Get some leather strap 1" wide and 6" long, rivets,rivet gun, and snaps.
Rivet a strap 1" from the end of a horizontal poles. Rivet a male snap 180 degrees from the strap you just put in. Using a scrap piece of tubing as a gauge, wrap the leather strap around the tube and mark for your snap location. Rivet the female snap on the mark. So you do this on each end of the horizontal poles.

Worms,

I bought some of those clips from Bluewater bait in bemidji. I think if you go to any sport shop that sells portables that use those clips, they should have parts for you. I am not sure what brands of portables use them but I have a Shoremaster 6x8 that does so I just found a sport shop that sells shoremaster. Maybe you could do the same.

thanks all. I think I found the clips I was looking for. I am getting some sent to me from canvas craft in anoka. This is where my dad bought his portable and they should work just fine.
