      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 .

AGM vs Deep Cell Batteries???

Recommended Posts

I am in the market to get batteries for my 80lb 24v Minnekota and was wondering people's experience with AGM vs regular Deep Cell Batteries?? Price doesn't really matter, just want cost-effectiveness. My other ones I have had for close to 4 years but I do not run them alot. They are some brand (Northern??) that i have never heard of. Didn't always have great luck with them. Kinda wondering about the Cabelas Advanced Angler AGMs? thanks in advance for any info.

AGM is constructed in a much more durable way which alieviates the most common form of battery failure (internal injury due to bouncing over rough water common to forward battery placement in tin boats) It also seems that reserve capacity is greater thus can use for longer time between charge. The battery is also maintenance free which I like. I use and recommend the "C" store AGM.

I have the AGM batteries from big "C" and they are everything they are marketed to be. Very satisfied with the reserve power and durability. And the maintenance free factor is big!

When you guys are talking "C" store, you talking Cabelas?? I know enough small towns out there with Cenex "C stores" so I was just clarifying. thanks

Sconasotan,

The big 'C'would be Cabela's.

I hav a pair of the group 27's in the 16' Lund (Old boat) and have had them for about 4 years and when the time comes to replace the batteries in the 18' Lund (New Boat) I'll go with the Advanced angler AGM Batteries from Cabela's. But I hope that'll be a couple of years down the road.
