      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 .

add light to underwater camera

Recommended Posts

I used the search tool, I hope this is not a repeat:

Do you think I can add a light to a Cabela's house brand underwater camera. it has IR, but that will be useless after sunset. I was thinking zip-ties and a waterproof flashlight.

It seems so easy, there must be something wrong with my theory.

Alright boys and girls; shoot holes in it!

aquaview came out with one last winter to add to there cameras...used it this last weekend and it made some difference when the sun went down but not enough to really use it after dark but you could tell the difference when we had the light on and when we had it off..

But are they legal to use. Many have said they are not. Plus you want to make sure they are well attached, mine came out of it's holder and is sitting on the bottom of Lake Mille Lacs.

well, good question lambjm. IF you use it for underwater viewing, then yes, its perfectly legal.. if you use it for fishing/attracting fish, then no.. I use mine a lot just to look at fish species, bottom content ect.. I dont use it to catch fish.

Just wondering where you get the distinction between looking and fishing on the lights issue?

its illgeall period to have a object added on to the camera if the lights are built in its fine but you cant add more. land of 10,000 laws and loop holes...just get a 1000 watt halogen light on your wall pointed in the hole and you will see everything!

I did a search on the Legislative Revisor's HSOforum and couldn't find a reference to the artificial light issue in either the statutes or the Minnesota Rules. I don't know where else to look but if it isn't in those sources I don't see how it can be legally enforceable. Not trying to start up a contorversy but it seems odd that I can't find it. Oh, and I did this for a living for a long time so I am reasonably familar with how it gets done. Anyone else have a reference for the no lights while fishing rule?

    • A few of our guys hover around the deer with ice cream buckets or freezer bags to get every heart they can get.  I usually make them into jerky.
    • I've done that plenty in the past and find that stuff generally brings a pretty high price. Truth be told I purchased a grocery store/ butcher shop about 18 years ago when it closed. I got some of the equipment but lots of it was sold for good money and secondly the commercial stuff is usually too big and have bigger motors than I care to run as a hobby.  The commercial bandsaws are usually 3-10 hp and some are 3 phase. 
    • Del's gonna tell ya that spreads CWD......
    • Here's my recipe that I've used for many, many years with lots of complements.  1) Shoot Deer. 2) Pull guts and inners out. 3) Leave pile on forest floor to chill until some varmint comes by to enjoy it. They love it every time! 
    • The game was won but 2 missed go ahead field goals in a needed game. Not league leading stuff!
    • I would find an auction of an old meat market or grocery store. You would probably get an old but good quality stainless steel saw for a good price.
    •     Cripe-o-rama!  Now THERE's some real beef cookery!!!  And just ignore dat  babbling little smurf, boober! 
    • Awe GAWD, your ruining it with the bacon!!
    • Well said del. Well mike since your roast thread got cut up so did the roast. Waiting for the coals but here is the bacon wrapped beauty's waiting for the cast iron..  
    • Ya, this sure went south from a lot of those who always quacked about threads going south. Follow that analogy. Gotta disagree with ya on the braising bit though, Del. It won't always be "well done" by the time it's tender. I atill like to follow the pork rule of "low and slow" for most meats.  But, a roast is always good unless ya totally fudge it up. Now ya got me wanting to make one...think I'll go dig around in the freezer, know I've got one buried in there somewhere, just waiting to be melded with aromatics and tasty sauces...  "Beef, it's what's for dinner!"
