      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 .

Flashers- LED or LCD

Recommended Posts

I have read all the posts on the flashers with much interest. I have been using a Zercom LCF-40 for years. I love the functionality of it. It reads fish, structure, and lures great. The problem is the interference and no color, so I started thinking about a new unit. I am fortunate enough to live next door to someone in fishing retail. Last week, I sat on the ice with a LX-3, FL-18, Lowrance x67 Ice-machine, and my old unit. They are all good pieces of equipment. My question is what is the fascination with LED flashers? I personally believe the LCD displays are much better. I have fished with my father-in-law for years. He has an FL-8. The resolution and clarity of LCD displays just seem to offer more than traditional LED displays and a lot quieter. I am currently testing the Lowrance for about a month. I really like it. It has zoom, adjustable zoom, multi-color, and other extras. It also has multiple functions for soft water (I also need a new unit for the boat). Unfortunately, it does not have an interference function. This is the only negative I can find with the x67. I did experience some interference this weekend. It would wig out, but it always would seem to relocate itself. I have heard and read a couple of comments on the x67. LCD freezing: I have never had trouble with my LCD in the cold, and I have heard second hand a couple of times that they have tested the x67 in Canada in extreme cold. Size of the screen: it is small, but it is very easy to see and view. I am fortunate enough to have good eyes though. Many of you are saying Marcum is coming and coming fast Are all those watts on the lake going to screw everything up? To follow that up, my neighbor sold around 20 Vexilars, 8-9 Lowrances, and 2 Marcums this weekend at the St. Paul show. I am not sure what that tells me. I did like the Marcum second to the x67. My second question, anyone else testing the Lowrance and experiencing interference. My third question, should I just wait for Lowrance to fix the interference for next year, take another look at the LED flashers, or start looking into a camera?
This $400 bucks must really be burning a hole in my pocket.
