      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 .

Hey guys, I'm brand new to the board and I'm not in your area. I'm in New England (yeah sorry - home of the GOAT - please don't hate, I grew up watching Plunket, Grogan, Eason,etc. We did our time). Anyway, I stumbled upon this message board while looking for tips on using my Humminbird 597 on the ice. I found a lot of good info here. However, I am looking to see how exactly you guys that use this device on the ice set it up for optimum ice fishing performance as well as maximum battery conservation. I assume that if I turn of GPS and DI it will allow the battery to last longer. I simply don't know how to turn those features off. Any tips for this? Any help is appreciated! Go PACK Go! Go Bears! Go Lions, Go Vikings! :)

I use a lowrance and Youtube has been helpful in getting it set up for the ice. I can't really help much with your cute little bird.
