      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 .

Recommended Posts

I would like to know the difference between the Vector and the Vector 3x models of minnkota trolling motors, and what is the value of a new vector model?

3x is steering, for a 15degree movement in the tiller handle the motor moves 45 degrees.

As for what they are worth, I think the 3x is worth it's weight in gold.

Depends on how much backtrolling you do. I love my Vector with 3X Steering on my YarCraft. Works great on Mille Lacs.

Personal choice I guess.

Before you purchase one, contact Dave at Pro Fishing Supply (FM sponsor). I bought mine from him, best price and service. grin

with the 12 volt 55lb vector, can you backtroll in heavier winds and how long does the battery last in those conditions?? thanks for all the help.

The older vectors did not have the maximizer. They only had 5 forward and reverse speeds and are harsh on batteries. Look the the newer models, with infinite variable speed contol.

Sconasotan,

I have the maximizer on mine and if it is really windy I use the 40hp for back trolling, were talking 15+ mph. I can go all day with the 3x in light to modreate winds with out a problem with a group 27 battery,(10 to 12 hours per day is my guess) the bigger the reserve capacity the better, I would also recomend an agm battery instead of a standard wet cell deep cycle.

I am no expert but it works for me.
