      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 .

Bow Mount Install ???

Recommended Posts

I am planning the installation of a bow mounted depth finder. Can someone offer some tips on the routing of the transducer cable from the bottom of the trolling motor up the shaft? I've seen photos with the cable spiral wrapped up the shaft but I'm not sure how this works when the motor is stored or extended.

Just watch your pinch points and then use cable ties to connect the cable to the shaft of your motor. That's how we have always done it with no problems.

I guess that would depend on the style of bowmount you have. I have a minnkota powerdive and the way that it slides up to store you can only wrap so far and still be able to bring it up out of the water.

You are making me think a little now, I am considering the same thing. With that one I think you would need to go around the slide mount with the cable. The problem with that would be the loose cable.

Hmmm smile.gif Gonna have to look a little myself now.

Run your transducer cable through the center of your trolling motor coil. Zip tie it where it enters the coil and again where it exits the coil. This should work for you.

Hey Grabs,
Pardon the ignorance but I'm not sure I understand your reference to the trolling motor coil. I also have a MinnKota Power Drive that I'll be attaching the transducer to.
