      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 .

New Electronics for new boat

Recommended Posts


I'm requesting you regarding electronics on a new boat. I am in the process of buying a 19' Lowe Tahiti Deck Boat with a 150 Ficht for a family/fishing boat and I want to get the right electronics for fishing. I really like sonar and mapping with GPS and I'm looking at the: Lowrance 2001 Model LCX-15CT with TFT (Is this too much?)
with the mapping package. I like computers and would enjoy the interface. Having it set to be moveably mounted at the bow or console.

I like to walleye/northern/bass fish on Mille Lacs, Lake of the Woods, and Vermillion etc, and I really need mapping. I get lost easier as I get older, and of course, forget stuff like good spots.
Do you think I'm making a good choice?

Also, do you like the Minn Kota Minn Kota 2001 Genisis 74/AP with Auto Pilot for a bow mounted electric motor?

And one more thing, do you like the :
Minn Kota 2001Deckhand Model DH-35
with Crabclaw CC-18 Anchor & 60 ft of 800# Nylon Rope
I have a bad back? I would get one on the front and one on the back.

Rob, any help is greatly appreciated on this.
