      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 .

Yes you can mount it on the left side.  You might need to mount it a little deeper to get readings at high speed.  I think they are worried about the boat not being level due to the torque from the prop.

Mount it to one of those plastic boards and then you can temporarily clamp it to the boat to experiment with location and depth. 

Cheapest plastic mounting boards are cutting boards.  If you want big ones to get a longer piece of plastic go to a commercial kitchen supply/restaurant supply place.  Or Amazon.

That and in most boats other then tillers the driver seat is on the right side adding a bit of tilt on lighter boats and when alone in the boat. Even my 17.5' Starcraft when looking at the water mark from the back shows the right side sitting a little deeper.

it seems posting in the cooking forum, although odd, get's good responses quickly.  In my mind we've got 20-30 guys with a lot of life experience that want to help you out.  As proven by Del and the artist formerly know as Cass Lake aka Leech.  

If given the chance to ask any question I defer to the cooking forum.  Sometimes even cooking questions get answered.

Yer trolling motor's on the wrong side. Turn the boat around. :grin:  Yes, you can mount it on the left. Biggest issue is if you have ribs or strakes on bottom of boat, NOT directly behind one. Air pocket/cavitation will give false readings.

Looks like we've done it again. HAHAHA! 

We answered his question, solved his problem.   What more is there besides the normal drift and blather?

PS if you get a chance go check out the bluebells on the Mayowood trail.   Spectacular between mile 4 and 5.5.

Del, if I could walk 4 or 5 blocks I'd be thrilled. Thanks for the nice thought, though. :)

"Drift and blather"...I like that . Think I'll make D&B my buzzphrase.

If you can walk a couple blocks you can see them.  Park on Salem Lane SW and go through the open gate in the fence, or drive down the lane just to the outside of the fence, sort of under the power line.   They are long that lane in the woods and to the right on the bike path.  If you do this you could practically see them from your truck. 

Just don't scare all the walkers and bikers with the big iron on your hip....like in the song.

I've been driving all around town looking for Mayowood Trail and finally stopped a Medina Cop and asked him.  He said there isn't one and I realized we were back to Rochogrophy with Del and Reb. It's one of my favorite shows you can podcast.

    • You sound like a BBQ fence sitter to me....
    • Buddy and I each have a Bearcat and we're looking to ditch the handhelds and mount a GPS/Depthfinder unit behind the windshield.  Anyone have any tips?  What units did you use? (seems like Helix's are common) I'd also like to mount a lightbar somewhere on the front for improved lighting.  My auger cradle up front blocks the headlight somewhat and it sure would be nice to have a really bright light up front at night.  I was thinking maybe mount it somewhere on the cradle (it's steel and then I'm not ruining my sled hood) and then have a quick disconnect somewhere on the wiring in case I want to ride without the auger/cradle on. Pictures + ideas appreciated!
    •  It's been many years since I've shot my black powder gun and is very clean  but I'm thinking I'd like to take it out this year and deer hunt. I used to shoot a ball  and would probably like to do that  for hunting  It's been so long so I'm a little bit rusty. I used to get black powder in Superior Wisconsin  but the store that I used to get it at no longer carries it.  Does anybody know any place within driving distance to  get black powder or could I order it through the mail?  Before I take it out and shoot it I need to have the accessories to clean it.  Many years ago when I used to shoot it a lot, are used to have a tube that would connect to the nipple or I would take the nipple off and reconnect another one and draw water through that to clean it.  Can you believe I've forgotten how this procedure is done?   Thanks to all that reply  
    • To add ontop of this i just noticed that the cold lead and the sensor cannot be routed in the same conduit and the electrician only did one. what would your suggestion be there?
    • We are going to be using this fish house as camper as well so that is why I put outdoor speakers in. I don't see myself using them on the lake. I only turn the strobes on when someone is coming out to the house or when we go to shore/bar so it is easier to find when we come back. It is corrugated steel my Dad got from tearing down an old shed. Sounds like VTX has some if you're interested or there is a lot of people on hsolist selling it. 
    • Yeah, I apologise for derailing the thread. I was just making a good natured observation and it seems a few took it far more serious than it really was. I enjoy doing it as well. 
    • Just trying to get some opinions on how to do this. I bought a 60sqft mat from pexuniverse.com (HeatTech) is the brand name same as all the others from what I have read online. My question is prep and installation. I am building a  new home this is going to be located in the master bathroom which is OSB flooring (Blank Slate to start with).  I have read I could put this right onto the OSB and then trowel (3/8" plastic) over to tile my flooring. OR i could do a self lever concrete over the mat to make install of tile a little easier?  I am installing the 1"x1" Hexagon tiles which are in a 1'x1' mat.  Or how would you go about this? My father in-law thinks I should lay tar paper down then heating mat with a self leveler over that.  Just want install to go easy and not spend a ton. Thought? Advise?
    • No I dont, if I had to estimate it I would guess in the 750 range but that is only a guess. 
    • If your interested in some actual old barn tin I can give you a contact. Just shoot me a PM. he's located in Hudson, WI
    • Weekend forcast is predicting 1-3" of snow Thursday night. For sure I will be in a tree Thursday afternoon and Friday Morning...
