      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 .

How are the MC2X cameras at night?

Recommended Posts

Looking at finally getting a camera, either the z or the mc2x. Can people who have used the mc2x tell me about there experinces with them at night. I have seen the "snow storm" during the day with one, but those lights are supposed to work better at night is it true, are they much better than the original ir lights at night? Do they scare crappies? Walleyes? What do you guys think.
Thanks

I've used mine at night and it works ok. It really depends on the water clarity and the amount of small particales in the water. If the waters clear it works fine otherwise the lights seem to really highlight any particles in the water and make it hard to look at.

Some people say the light spooks fish, I tend to agree.

Thanks chucker, how about when the lights scare fish at night, is it all species or just walleye. I ask because I fish a lot of crappie in the evenings and tend to use glow jigs in colors like red and yellow(same as camera colors) and they seem to attract crappies not scare them? Are the lights just too intense?

It's just a matter of if you have the lights on before the fish are there. If all of a sudden some lights pop out of nowhere that is going to scare most things.

Here is my experience with my MC2x.
The "Christmas Lights" as a friend once called them have not worked well for me.
1) They seem to draw the little water creatures to the lens-and all I can see are white blobs in front of the lens.(Like the snow storm you mentioned above).
2)When fishing after sunset, I have turned on the LED Christmas Lights in the presence of crappie and BGs (in the lakes I fish)...they take off for parts unknown! And don't return.
3)I have tried leaving the light on for 30-40 minutes while watching my Vex at the same time, thinking that the light would draw in the bait and then the fish. I have not seen this work yet.
These are my experiences...not to be confused with those of a professional!
