      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 .

Well when I got to work today my ice fishing stuff had arrived, WAAAHOOO! So I got to play with the new Genz and St.Croix rods and the Vex FL-18. We'll i will have to say that the vexilar video was not that impressive, it gets the job done but was expecting mored on the unit seeing smaller lures. I can't wait to get it out on the water. The FL-18 is a little noisier than I expected but is my first flasher. I think I gave my self a brain scan while doing a dry run, was neat. And YES there are fish swimming around in my head. I did put the foam under the battery first thing. And the unit came with a little arm if you don't want to use the float, to bad there is not a little bracket for it to snap into while not in use. Definately nice and bright. I was expecting a longer transducer cable, it seems short, but will do fine. The depth cord grip seems awfully tight. well I will have to get out there with the new toys this week. I do also have to say that the rods seem shorter and softer than I expected, but very nice none the less.

Don't worry about that depth cord adjuster. It seems tight right now, but it will wear in. Mine got too loose and I ended up taping it with electrical tape to keep it from slipping.

Its fine for ice, but I was thinking of for using it as a portable for like fishing off a pier where the water may be 10' down or so. I am using the VEX in propac form from a boat in open water until I can get to some ice. I was planning on going to Mammoth Ca but just found out they banned the ice fishing 2 years ago.
