      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 .

I OWN A HUMMINBIRD FISH FINDER AND MY DAD HAS AN EAGLE F.F. I'M NOT CONVINCED THAT EITHER ONE OF THEM ARE EXTREMELY RELIABLE. DOES ANYONE HAVE EXPERIENCE WITH AN ACCURATE FISHFINDER?

Your question about a depth finders accuracy is a "can of worms". The most common we get from customers about sonar units is "will it show fish". The only answere we can give is yes and no. Sonar in theory is a very accurate device, the confusion on accuracy comes from differences in reading the display. Any sonar unit can show bottom structure and fish in the right conditions.
Without knowing the exact types of units you are using and the way they are set up I will go with factory set up. The display on a LCD sonar in auto mode with the fish ID on, can be very flustrating. It will show fish all over the place, but are they really fish? In many cases NO. A sonar unit can not distinguish fish from any other return it recieves. It could take anything from a turtle to a weed clump and put a fish symbol up for it. Auto mode is fine for most people but turn the "cartoon fish" off. Granted the display will be a little boring but at least it is a truer depiction of the bottom.
The sonar tutorial on the Lowrance.com site is a good place to find out the limitations of sonar. The principles stay the same reguardless of what brand you are using.
