      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 .

I used a Marcum and took it back. It was fine, I just expected it to be better than it was. Plus I hole hop and the systems seem bulky to me, especially with a flasher there already.

I will give them another try once they all move to LCD screens (not just the high end ones).

Tyler - I'll sell you my ICE-45 w/case for $315. You know how little I've used it grin

Way more useful than any camera around here!

I like to drill quite a few holes when I'm initially scouting an area and pop the camera down to see what kind of structure, breaks and fish I'm fishing. It's also nice to keep them near a tipup if it's hard to keep an eye on. I've got a Marcum VS380 and love it. Well worth it.

I have the Aqua View Quad360. You cant see 360* its more like 85* out of every 90* up close, out a ways its 360*. I still really like it. If I had to buy another it would be the model that you can turn under water. Like the actual camera turns inside a housing. Its hard to keep track of your bait if there is much current.

We had an Aqua Vu, wasn't bad now run a Marcum VS 820 and love it. May get a color one this year just so the wife and I don't have to fight over the one we already have.

The Marcum 380 is a great camera to.

First time out with my Aqua Vu (I bought the tripod) I got sick of trying to get it set just right. Not enough time out there to fiddle with it, so next time out I hooked the cable through the plastic fin and down viewed. Thats all I have ever done ever since. Works great. I go about 2 feet above my jig, can see it all times. I suppose with the 360 that option isn't even available.
