      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 .

Graphing Fish Through Ice???

Recommended Posts

I am aware that I can graph the bottom depth through the ice, but can you graph fish too? I have the fl-18, and have no problems getting the bottom depth through the ice, but was just wondering if fish would show up too. Thanks for any information. Zimm

I do all the time. In fact I have a little squeeze bottle full of Salt water that I use to make a puddle for the ducer on the ice...it works like a champ!

Fish will show up as long as you can get a good reading. Bring some water along likr Chiro said and it should work as long as the snow cover doesn't taint the signal.

Good Fishin, Matt.

I mark fish all the time with my vex through the ice early in the season. I can find the edge of weed lines through the ice as well. Later in the season it gets tougher to do as the snopack and the ice surface consolidate and has a lot of air pockets. I can usually get around this by pouring a bit of warm water on the surface until the consolidated stuff melts away to good clear ice.

I also graph fish through the ice all of the time. I can do it through over two feet of ice if it is fairly clear. I bring along a little windshield bottle filled with water and wet the ice and I'm ready to look for fish.

I had a Garmin, Eagle, Zercom, Vexilar and they all marked fish from top of ice (needs water between transducer and ice).
