      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 Minnkota Remotes?

Recommended Posts

Guest

Anyone used these new remotes for the Minnkotas? They hook onto the existing trolling motor and they have a small remote you can hook onto your fishing rod/belt/whatever.

The sales guy at Scheels in Moorhead almost talked me into one yesterday but I thought I'd check around for reliability tests or opinions. I used to have one of the cordless Minnkota foot pedals and I had nothing but trouble with that thing, so I'm kind of hesitant.

So, anyone try these yet? Someone must have, because the sales guy told me they'd sold about 100 of them in 3 days.

I've got a new one on a new boat and although I haven't used if for a full day, I have used it about an hour or so and it had no problems with it. It did what I told it to do, although ergonomically it seems to want to sit in my hand backwards (I end up holding it upside down where right is left and left is right) I like it. I plan on losing a lot of remotes though. Bottomline is for me it's way better than the foot pedal, I don't like the foot pedal on my autopilots I've had, the speed is hard to control when you just want to bump speed a little bit, I end up reaching down with my hand to do it. I'd recommend the copilot and if you look back a few pages there is a topic on this from a few weeks ago.

I purchased the Copilot from MinnKota this spring and have used it several times. I think it is on of my best purchases. I can control the boat from anywhere in the boat. I think this remote will be commonplace shortly if there are no long term bugs in it. I have it mounted on my fishing pole right in front of the reel. They provide three mounts for this purpose. I also sent in the promotional bonus form and received the free 2nd remote. Buy it, you'll like it

Okay, so I broke down and got one. If there's any news after I install and use it I'll post it.

Thanks for the comments everyone.
