      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 .

Bottom Line LCD fish locator display ??

Recommended Posts

Recently purchased a used boat with a 360 Bottom Line Tournement LCD. Was hoping it would display fish as a sonar arch but it seems it displays a fish symbol instead. Does anyone know if this unit can be changed or modified to display a sonar arch rather than a fish symbol? I love the unit, many more funtions than I will ever use. Any suggestions would be greatly welcomed.
Please remember to practice CPR.

Yes, you should be able to show either defining feature. Just play a bit with it using the main menu and scrolling down as viking605 says...it is in there.

One point of concern for you also....

BE certain to NOT allow the cable-connectors on the rear of the unit to turn while you connect the cables to it while removing/installing the unit!!

I had a Tournament Master SF3 unit that burned-out... I am thinking was due to the plastic nuts that retain the partially threaded "male" end connectors, loosened. Thus allowing the "male" connector to turn inside the unit, and also allowing the wiring inside to wrap-around inside. Causing a electrical-short. NOT GOOD! This unit was a 1998 vintage.

I am waiting for my new Tournament 4300 from Bottom Line now. They DO stand-by their product tho at Bottom Line.

I got this NEW 4300 unit for exchange of my old & "burned-out" SF3 unit and $150.

So, I am ok with that grin.gif

Good Luck with your Bottom Line unit Murdock! (I believe..if you look hard enough in the unit, you may also find a electronic game to play in there(?)

I had the same problem with my BottomLine unit, the nut turned and the contacts broke. Too sloppy a connection into the housing.

They vibrate loose WAY too easy! The second time it happened, I superglued the dam thing so it would not spin. If it mess's up again, it will hit the trash can, or a 5 pound sledge will hit it. I will not send it in again.

That's ANOTHER big reason I went to Vexilar, quality of product and they stand by their stuff, no YADA-YADA-YADA what if's, they just fix it, done deal....all better now...Go fish.

My tip for you is look at the new Vexilar color graph or the EDGE-2, both are top units and will hold up. If and when you ever do need service, they will be on your side..no talk. It will be fixed right the first time, and if it is in any way there quality that was an issue.......no charge.

    • Yeah, it's not BigDave for nothing there fella!
    • It's dinner and supper!
    • My wife loooves Beets. Here's my recipe Lot of beets, as many as you can fit in to a large boiling pan. .add 1 cup draino .add 1 cup muriatic acid .heat with a blow torch throw off hwy over pass so they get tender under semi truck tries for one hour. Then go get some food and have a Beer! Enjoy! Hate um!      
    • The guy who told me this said teal were in big groups and he saw a few hundred
    • Just cuz they're flying that direction don't mean the migration started!   Summer-like temps again this year for the opener.  I don't think they're bugging out yet.  Last year I saw teal in NE MN in the 3rd week of October! I have enough shells and some calls I suck at blowing, along with decoys that sport my initials and '87 so I guess I'm as ready as every other year!
    • Never heard of one where ya DON'T cook the beets....but who knows? Here's one I used years ago... EASY PICKLED BEETS (1 Quart) 2 bunches small beets – ends trimmed and scrubbed 4 small onions – sliced and separate rings ½ cup liquid from boiled beets ½ cup white vinegar ½ cup honey – go local! ¼ teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon cinnamon or cinnamon stick ¼ teaspoon cloves Bring beets and enough water to cover to a boil over high heat.  Reduce to medium and continue to boil for 45 minutes.  With 5 minutes remaining on beets add onion slices.  Drain beets and onions, reserving ½ cup of the liquid, set aside. While the beets and onions cool add beet liquid, vinegar, honey, salt, cinnamon, and cloves to medium sauce pan and bring to a boil. Peel beets (this should be easy once they are cooled), and slice.  Add sliced beets and onions to a Mason jar, or air tight container of your choosing.  Cover beets with boiled liquid, cover, and refrigerate at least 24 hours before eating.  I prefer them after about 72 hours.  
    • If that's lunch, I'd love to see dinner!! 
    • We can't find our recipe for pickled beets. Haven't done this for a couple of years.  Wife and I both certain we didn't cook the beets.....we just packed them in hot jars, poured the brine over, then boiled the sealed jars for 15-20 minutes.  I can't find a recipe that says you don't have to cook beets.  Does any one have such a recipe?  Our brine contained cinnamon sticks and cloves.  I imagine we could just add these ingredients to any regular vinegar/sugar/water brine though.  Mostly just wondering about using raw beats vs uncooked beets.  Thanks...Jim
    • Looks good, for sure. 
    • No, but this is what I would get if I was there.
