      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 .

Fish Finders, Now or Later?

Recommended Posts

Is this the best time of the year to by fish finders? If not, when is? I am currently looking at the Lowrance X91, X71, 240 LMS and the Garmin 240. It is difficult to weigh advantages VS disadvantages when comparing the models. I would like to see some opinions on theses mid-priced units. And maybe some one can answer why Lowrance introduced all new models last year and are now changing all of their models this year. Did they come out with some new features or what? Doesn't it seem odd that Lowrance made the X85 for years, and now they are changing their models on a yearly basis?
Thanks,
Reefdawg

I got the Lowrance X-91 for X-Mas and it seems to be a great unit based on the research that I did. For the best price go to cabelas.com. They currently have the X-91 on sales for 299.99 and they even threw in a free RAM mount. Unfortunately, I do not know why Lowrnace is changing their models again. Good luck.

Tell me about it!!! I got my Dad a new Eagle last year for Christmas, but told him to not take it out of the plastic until the Cabela's spring catalog arrived in the mail (easiest way to discover if there's new models). Sure enough, totally redesigned models. So he sent it back to me and I exchanged it at the store for a new one. Now... I see in the spring catalog that arrived yesterday, that his 120 pixel graph has been replaced by a 320 pixel for the SAME PRICE!!! Hope my FL-18 doesn't become obsolete that fast!

Best FISHES,

Doesnt look like they are changing models. Looks like they have added to their line. The X-97 is a 320x320 pixel with 3,200 watts compared to the x-91 at 240x240 pixels.

By the way, Reeds has the LMS-240 with GPS for 399.99 right now. Great unit, my buddy paid $539.99 for his at Cabelas last summer.
