      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 .

If it is dead as a Toad on the road? Short answer, about 48 hours.

This info should help ya Slickster.

Connect the charger to a standard 110-volt wall outlet. The red light should come on.
Connect the charger clips to the battery. The red light should go off. Make sure you match the red clip to the positive battery terminal and the black clip to the negative terminal.

Charge the battery until the red light comes back on to full brightness. Then disconnect the charger from the outlet and the battery.
Use only the charger provided to charge this battery. This 12 volt, 1/2 amp charger has been designed to provide the optimum charge for this battery.

Charge the battery after each use. Let it charge until the red LED lights to full brightness. Normal recharge times will be between 12 and 24 hours, but a completely dead battery will need over 48 hours to fully recharge. Do not let it charge for more than 72 hours after the light has come on to full brightness.

Charge the battery at room temperature. If the battery is used in a cold environment allow it to warm up before starting to charge. Cold batteries will not charge.

To store the battery for an extended period of time, remove all devices and store with a full charge. Store it in a cool place and top off the charge every 30 to 60 days.
For faster charging with automatic shutoff, use the optional V300 charger.

BATTERY DO'S

Allow battery to FULLY recharge before use. Recharge the battery AFTER EACH USE.

Give cold batteries extra time to charge. Charge at room temperature if you can.

Keep Flames, Sparks, and Metal objects away from batteries and terminals.

If the battery is an open type, add distilled water AFTER battery is recharged.

Keep the battery clean and dry.
Charge periodically during battery storage.

BATTERY DON'TS

OVER DISCHARGE the battery, You should never drain a battery beyond 80%.

OVERCHARGE the battery. Measure the voltage of the battery while charging. It should never go over 15 volts.

DISCONNECT battery before switching the charger OFF.
Damage the battery or terminals by dropping.

    • Here is a project for you when fishing gets slow.  
    • I've never been to Boone's but I would think that Ahlman's Gun Shop down by Waterville might be similar and another possible resource.
    • Was able to get out these last couple weeks a couple times to enjoy the waterfowl before most of them left for good. Surprisingly was able to find a couple sea ducks on back to back weekends. The harlequin was a first for me in MN and the Long Tail was the second of my life.  Young long tail days before this lake froze over. Hen Harlequin below the St. Cloud darn couple weeks ago. American blackduck - may have some slight mallard mixed in with it as I noticed some green on its head from certain angles. widgeon picture I liked the colors with. This was taken early November.  
    • Hey, I just started mine and did about 5 circles around the yard just to smell some exhaust!
    • Wow. That's like a dictionary.
    • I downloaded and printed the manual. Worth it. It does so many things it would take years to fumble through to find shortcuts and fine tune without it. 
    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.
