      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 .

Advice for FishEasy 2 Portable

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I received a FishEasy 2 for X-mas and would like some advice on how to best use it on the ice. I've messed around with it and gotten a feel for it, just wanted to get your feedback/suggestions.

It seems the best battery option is to go with a gel-cell rechargeable, would this be accurate? Are these available at Batteries Plus, or the like?

It seems that on the ice, a sensitivity of 90%+ works best in order to not only see structure, but also your own lure. Any feedback?

Any other settings that others have found useful or like to use while on the ice?

I've found that the batteries are sensitive to cold. How have you guys insulated your portable unit?

How do you transport your portable? Any recommendations on padded carrying packs/bags?

Thanks for any/all information!

I'd like to know too...I couldn't figure it out so I returned mine.

I kind of miss it now...if only I knew how to make good use of it on the ice.

By the way...I just used a regular 12 Volt battery...worked fine for me.

I have use my FishEasy II on the ic efor the last two years.

Here's what I do.
-I put it in a clear rubbermaid container and cut foam insulation to fit in the bottom to help insulate the bottom from the cold.
-Use a rechargeable 12v battery, one that fits inside the case.
-I turn all the added features off, like fish alarm, fish and things like that.
-I set the Scroll Speed to 100%.
-Use the Split Screen so I can zoom in on the bottom.
-I adjust the sensitivity so that I can just see the lure I am using at the time. I usually set it so that it occassionally looses the lure on the screen. I think this helps reuduce the clutter on the screen.
-I mounted the transducer on an old tip-up.

This has worked for me. I also use mine in a portable shelter.
