      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 .

GPS QUESTION (GARMAN)

Recommended Posts

I am not very familiar with GPS's and the differences between them. Someone wants to sell me a Garman III PLUS for $150. It is about 3-4 years old and I'm not sure if it is worth it. He has the vidio, CD-Rom and manual. It seem's to be in very good condition. He has only used it a few times.

My primary use for this will fishing (ice and open water) and 4-wheeling.

Can anyone give me some feedback on the unit.

I have a III plus, and have been very happy with it. I have uses the Lakemaster software to upload waypoints from the mapping software to my GPS. It works very well.

That said, $150 seems a bit steep for a unit that is about 3-4 years old.

I bought mine for $99 three years ago when Office Depot was closing them out.

Gissert...

Thanks for the info. Do you use the Lakeview software for the lake maps or are you using it just for the waypoint information?

I am going to see if he will come down on his price a little.

Thanks Again... Sunrise...

    • I’ve never measured how many Amps my block heater draws but resistance type heaters like that usually draw heavy.  Maybe you notice it on your electric bill and maybe not.  That would be my biggest concern if I was starting it most every day and circulating the fluid. The only other thing is using up the serviceable life of the heater.  Heat/cool cycles the hardest on the heater but they only burn so many hours.  Granted it should be LOTS of hours.  Putting in a new one wouldn’t be fun if you do that stuff on your own. IDK, it’s electricity, copper and coolant.  Pretty basic stuff.  If your owners manual doesn’t mention any guidelines I’d go for it.
    • You seem to always have a lot of Nords around smoked or fried, but never give any fishing reports?  Turn in Poachers (TIP) in Minnesota  To report a violation immediately, call 1-800-652-9093
    • Fried boneless nords beans and my homemade horseradish.
    • They're both in direct sunlight. 
    • Went ahead and changed the fuel pump guys. The spring on the mechanical pump was gone. That solved the cut outs and will start now with a touch of the key. Thanks to all!
    • Has anyone tried the Hulu live TV thing yet? You get all of Hulu movies and tv shows plus live TV like Sling but it's $39.99.
    • The nice thing about pluging it in is you have heat blowing right away 
    • I'm not saying I'd plug it in on November 1st and leave it for the year. I'm mainly talking when we start getting into the lows around zero or below. The main reason I asked this was because my father in law stated that it wasn't a good idea to be leaving it plugged in and that the block heaters weren't designed to be left plugged in for more than overnight. It was much nicer last year with the quicker warm ups to load the kids up and take off.    As as far as the global climate change, would it be better to have it plugged in and let it warm up for a couple minutes or hit the auto start and let it idle for 20 minutes?  If I ever get caught up on the honey do's and get my stall in the garage cleaned out I can just park inside. May have to push the junk to the wife's side. That may move the cleaning up on the list.
