      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 .

Vantage trolling motor safety system

Recommended Posts

Apparently quite a few Vantage owners have sent their spendy trolling motors to Davey Jone's locker by hitting the throttle with the powerhead deployed. I know I've forgotten to raise mine before taking off and I guess I've been lucky because I've caught the error before snapping the bracket. One guy in the Brainerd area 'lost' two motors in the same season. Which brings me to the subject of this post. A MinnKota repair 'guru' (also in the Brainerd area) has invented an interlock system that locks out your gas motor ignition if the Vantage powerhead is deployed more than 2 inches....true [PoorWordUsage] insurance. I may be violating board policy by giving the guy's contact information but I think it's important (may be edited out) so here it is.....Jim Wentworth's Fish 'Lectronics south of Pequot Lakes on 371. I'm going to have him put one on my rig before I drop mine in the drink and kick myself.

I lost one up in canada a couple years ago. Not a good feeling.

what's he charging now for that over ride set up? When I checked wit him it was over $200 but that was right after he came up with the concept.

By the way, how long has Jim been at that location? I just noticed it today when I was driving by.
