      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 .

Minnkota co-pilot

Question

I'm wondering if anyone has had a chance to use the Minnkota co-pilot wireless remote system? On the surface, it seems like a no brainer- it should simplify things. Is there a down side? Is it a larger drain on the batteries? Is there any sort of delay? Does the remote get in your way? I appreciate any advice.

The only power the remote would cost would be the battery in the remote. I can see it now,........5 hours from home,....3 miles out from shore,.....just got on a school,....remote battery?,.....dead. One more thing to drop in water. but for some it may be ideal. Me?,.....I fish with both hands, and have no room for a remote.

I think it is too expensive of an option.
$150 -$175 is too much money.
I will stick with my foot pad. grin.gif

I just installed one today on a 65 autopilot, so far so good..I can see the remote is too small for cold fingers, but you can run the footpedal also. Overall I think I'm going to like the thing. Works good in the shop, we'll see how it goes on the water... Paul
