      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 .

Iceboy, Go to the iowa page and post that question for icedog. He has a good technique for that one. I did it to mine a few years ago and it worked great.

Hi all - has anyone had a problem getting their 12 degree ducer to hang straight down? I've tried everything that the Vexilar HSOforum recommends, but still can't get it to point straight down. It's always visibly wobbly when I spin it and I can see that the bottom of the ducer isn't level. I can also actually see fish go past the strongest signal, start to turn green & then I get the bite. It's irritating - so if any of you have ideas, I'd much appreciate them.

thanks!
Iceboy

I would suggest you contact Vexilar directly. Call them at 952-884-5291 and tell them you have a problem. You will get tranferred to a technician who should be able to help you.

I have never had a transducer act up, so I can't give you an other advice. Maybe you got a bad one and Vex will replace it?!?

ScottO,
The problem is his ducer just won't hang straight. In fact, most of them don't. They are just close enough that most guys don't notice it. Mine was off kilt enough that I could see it just by eyeballing it. To really notice there was a problem, I'd lower my jig as near to directly under the ducer as possible, and I could not see the jig on the screen. Then I'd move the jig to the edge of the hole and there it was. You notice this problem more in water that is less than 20ft. Since I used icedog's method of balancing by adding weight to it, it works fine. If I'm not mistaken, this was talked about on this site a year or so back.

iceboy-I got a fix for a ducer that won't hang straight(most of the ones I have used don't!). Send me your e-mail address and I will send you the word document as an attachment. You can reach me at: david@techalli.com

    • Who was looking for .22 shorts on here??? Someone was......Bobby Bass?
    • Hmmm...poor customer service. Shoulda offered to show her a pic of yer pride and joy instead.   
    • Actually this reminds me of a time many years ago when I worked at the local grocery store. We had a sign in front of the ALL laundry detergent with a special sale price. A lady brought up a bottle of Tide detergent and expected it to be the sale price because the sign said ALL detergent. When I explained to her that it was the specific name brand ALL that was on sale and not the "global ALL" (as Del might put it) she got so embarrassed and angry that as she stormed out of the store she insisted it would have made a difference if we would have underlined the word ALL. 
    • A friend cleaned out a relative's house and gave me some ammo, some of which I can't use. Looking for reasonable offers on any of the following. I am in Inver Grove Heights. PM me if interested. 6 boxes 20 gauge Federal 2 3/4" duck/pheasant shells, 5 boxes are #6 shot, 1 box #4 shot 9 50 round boxes .22 short plus 3 partial boxes 9 50 round boxes  .22 long (not long rifle) plus 1 partial box 44 rounds .38 special lead, plus 43 rounds .38 special lead hollow point
    • LOL! Literally just a couple days ago you (Delcecchi) and Leech made the rule that someone shouldn't include you in a conversation that you aren't already engaged in and now you (Delcecchi) are butthurt that you (Delcecchi) weren't included in my statement in a thread you (Delcecchi) had yet to be engaged in. You can't make this stuff up.
    • OK, whatever..  Maybe a qualifier if it is not the global "we"
    • Never heard of it. I was looking to see what kind of Side Arm you needed a cooler for?  
    • Just as easy with Dish as Direct, as someone else mentioned I would look at the Tailgater from DISH, It will automatically lock onto the sats. I bought mine from DISH, it included a receiver and was about $300.  Then it is $7/month when you want to use it, they also prorate that $7 for a part of a month or day or week. We use it fishing and at hunting camp.
    • Maybe!!! those are the company dishes!! Actually just took them out of the dishwasher and it wasn't chow time for da hounddogs yet!!
    • Looks good, but you aren't serving it in Dog bowls are you?
