      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 .

Aqua view and vexilar

Recommended Posts

For ice fishing vexilar first, then auqu-view. For me the camera is more entrtainment for the kids than anything. If you learn to use an fl-8 you can tell the type of bottom. The fl-8 allows you to see were the fish are. If they are not biting,it is nice to se on camera what type of fish as well as how they are reacting to your bait/presentation.

GOOD LUCK!!

Well in a nut shell, buy the vex first, especially if you are a portable fisherman. I own an aqua-vu and it is worthless as soon as the sun even starts going down.

It is really awesome to have in the permenant shack, I hook mine up to a 13" TV and we watch it on that screen, plus we can record things that happen too, like a huge muskie swimming right in front of the camera.

Vex = portablity and flexibilty day and night
Aqua-vu = pure entertainment

I have a FL-18 Vex & an OVS-500 Camera, As mentioned previously when being mobile the Vex is great. The camera seems to take to long to set up but when there is time the camera is great to have.
Good Luck

Along with all the other posts, get a Vex first. It can tell you if there are even fish down there to look at. The cameras are fun and a good tool to check out bottom conditions and structure you locate with the flasher. Each piece of equipment should pay it's way in how much it improves your catching of your target species. If one of those turns out to be a camera then great, but a Vex, or any good FLASHER will most definatly pay it's way.
