      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 .

4-strokes

Recommended Posts

What size 4-stroke on a 17 foot boat will back-troll down enough in moderate waves while fishing walleyes? Some people have told me that a 90 horse is the biggest you can go. Will a 115 troll down? I currently have a smaller lund with a 15 horse 4-stroke which trolls down to a creep. I am looking at buying a 175 CS Alumacraft or a 1775 Pro-V SE. The wife will not allow me buy a tiller and I have never fished with a console. I am going to have bow and stern trolling motors but I would like to have an outboard that allows me to backtroll for walleyes. Am I going to have to buy a kicker or do I have other options? Please Help!

I have an Alumacraft TournamentPro 175 with a four stroke 90. It is not fully broken in yet but it will troll down to 1.8-2 mph in forward. This is from a wheel speedo on the depth finder. In reverse my wheel speedo doesn't register but it goes to fast for a Lindy rig unless there are decent waves.

32 d, I have a 115 4s and it will not troll down slow enough. I have no experience other than that but I would guess you will have to go down to a 75 or maybe less.
