      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 .

What Electronics

Recommended Posts

I have a Lund Rebel 1650 tiller and have had only a simple depth finder, which is now shot. What brand/model electronics would you suggest? I plan to mount it near the stern.

I have always had good luck with Eagle/Lowrance. They have a great line of products and services. For a GPS/Fish finder combo, Lowrance has a new M56m S/Map, that runs for about $299. If your looking for just a fishfinder, the Lowrance X47EX Wide Screen has the best bang for the buck right now at $149. Hope this helps a bit.

I would highly recommend any Lowrance product. Have run several different units over the years and have had no disappointments. Which model you buy depends on how much $ you want to spend, regardless, you won't be disappointed.

I got the LMS-320 by lowrance last year. It has both gps and sonar and you can use both in split screen.
The reason I got this unit was that I could use the lakemaster chip for Mille Lacs and now you have ProMap chips for 3 foot depth increments for many lakes that are available. If they have a map available for the lakes you regularly fish I would consider this unit which is about $600 or less.

If you still want to stay with a fairly simple set up and not get into the high buck stuff, take a look at the Eagle Fishmark 320. 320 pixels for good clarity and only runs about $189.00

I would second the fishmark 320, I bought one last year and it is awesome. You can get them for around 160 bucks right now.

My PERSONAL opinion, I wouldn't use Lowrance. I wont go into the details; but take a look at Raymarine (Raytheon) products. They are technolically ahead of the competition in my opinion with a very good heads up service dept.
