      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 .

HEEEEELP!!!!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

My fishing partner of 20+ years can no longer function, because this big dummy, did not attach the transducer correctly to the boat. The transducer is now sitting in 25+ feet of water on Lake Lida. I have contacted the factory, and have been told the transducer is no longer available anywhere. The unit is a Hummingbird 60. I purchased the unit in 1981. This is a old flasher. Does anyone know if any of the replacement transducers will function with this unit? I would not be quite as concerned, but, I am heading to Kab Saturday AM for a week of fishing. Thanks in advance guys and gals.

I would also recommend you contact Valv of KVE Surplus. He has everything and then some. He is THE Boat guy. If your working on your boat or electronics etc, he probably has it.

His banner pops up every now and the here or go to the SouthCentral forum and click on his name (Valv) to get his e-mail address.

I recommend everyone take some time to visit his place. He gives away a lot of things to his good customers as well. He's definitely priced right.

Hey 196th -
I may have a transducer for you. I believe the unit I have is a Super Sixty and that has a 30' or 60' scale. I'll bet there's someone on this site that could tell you if it will work.
If you want to just take a chance and pay for shipping I can Fed Ex it to you so you'd have it time for the weekend. I don't want anything for the 'ducer - the rest of the unit is shot.
You can email me @ wlpeterson@schmidt.com if this will help.

    • Hey guys, it's me PGF. Been a long time since I've posted and couldn't get logged on as old PGF so I'm busted down to newbie. Anyhoo, I saved this spear from the scrap yard and was wondering if you guys had any idea where it might have been made? It has MK or MN i think stamped near the business end. It's hard to tell for sure what letters they are. Any ideas are appreciated! Thanks
    • Maybe Fisherman's Corner in Duluth?
    • I believe superior shooter supply carries what you need, try giving them a call, but on a search myself they do not seem to carry black powder but they may be able to point you in the right direction ?
    • Been there done that . I have 2 CGI s and 1 Wright Mcgill Tony Roach ( Eagle Claw) . When I set them up outside the wind would spool the line off and of course get snagged in the nut holding the spool in place. I made a brass rod about 3 in with a loop on the end and fastened to the reel. I run the line through the loop. It helps quite a bit. The drag is another matter.
    • third season coming up for my #8's.  Once in a great while I might wrap on the button but very rare. My pointer finger keeps the line in place. Free spool??  I aint got time for that, LOL. 
    • Taking tomorrow off...  We will see what happens as this front pushes in.  Hopefully it gets something on its feet.
    • Just wondering what people use for portable chairs. Bucket, fold up, tripod, etc. Been looking at some nice fold up chairs with a padded swivel seat. But they are 11 pounds each. I want to stay as light as possible. I also have a tripod chair but don't really like a post riding up my crotch. 
    • I like my Eagle Claw. My only gripe is that because there is no hole for the line to go through it will come over the OD of the main spool and get wrapped around the release button. Then I end up having to loosen the button until it comes off. The line will then be free and then have to put the button back on and re-tighten it. I like the composit material because it is not cold to the touch when using bare hands. I also use my finger as a drag to control the free spooling. Sometimes it will spin too fast let out too much line.
    • that's part of the reason I didn't jump on this one cause I thought you yanking a chain or two...
    • There's a few good videos on the tube for ideas.
