      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 .

You can use it, but would probably have to mount it on something rather than hang it down the hole on its cord, unless it will rest level without a mount. Most boat transducers don't rest level when you dangle them in the water. You could mount it on a piece of angle iron or something straight that doesn't float, and rig a way for it to stay in place against the side of the hole. Your transducer will perform better (the cone will be unimpeded) if you make sure it sticks out slightly from the bottom of your ice hole.

Good luck.

I had a Garmin 160 I rigged up using a 1/2" flat aluminum bar (any Ace hardware has them for a couple of $$) bent it at 90 degrees and left it under fishfinder to keep it in position.

Worked like a champ. I was even able to shoot through ice and find out depth (I dipped it in minnow bucket water to make better contact with ice)
