      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 .

Batterys?

Recommended Posts

I have to find a new battery for my trolling motor. I have a minn koda endra 44lb 12v. I want to know...how big of a battery i should get? and i want to know where can I find a good cheap battery. I really don't need anything really but I am pushing a 14' boat. and I only go out for about 3-4 hours at a time and fish. after that I go home and put my battery on the charger.

Look for the highest reserve cranking and cold cranking amps. I like Delco 1150 batteries, they are 850 cca. the one reason that i say this is that they are a true deep cycle battery, not marine grade but will take the on and off of the charger the best. The boat guys probably have a different "marine" battery they use but if it is in a box, and you have it set up for a charger, i would go for it. I would not go "cheap" as you get just that, mostly a remanufactured battery that may last year or might last 19 minutes. Good luck.

the Wal-mart ones are made by exide, just labeled differently, and are about $30 cheaper than the exide labeled batteries. I have bought them in the past and have had no trouble with them, they have lasted several years. I figure I can get 3 of them for the price of some of the others out there.
