      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 .

just wondering if anyone out there has ar has used a pipoint trollong motor/finder system. I have heard about the problems the autopilots have been having so I have ruled it out as my next trolling motor. I'm looking to the masses for some hands-on info and not a salesman looking for an eager buyer.

problems?......is it worth the huge $$$?.......plus's/miunus's

anybodys 2 cents would be appreciated.

I am also going to be purchasing a new pinpoint in a few days and would like to here what some people have to say about them. Has anyone used both the SX series and the 3000 series? Will the SX follow structure such as humps, points, and sharp breaks as well as the 3000 series? Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I have a 2001 model 3700 24V 60# 60" shaft on a 1800 pro v. how it works? the steeper the coutour you are following the better the steering/sonar system works. on very-very gradual slopes they get lost or wander. Fishing hands-feet free is great when you use that feature. The motors are extremely efficient. The bracket and shaft are ruggedly built. I like the depth and temp readout on the display. I find I don't use most of the features early in the season. bottom line-- it's a killer machine, but I'm sure I could be satisified with less.

I purchased a new boat this year with a Pinpoint system on it. It has the 3000 series on it. Overall I would have to say its pretty good. Id buy another one. But there are draw backs. In areas with without alot of depth change it seems to get lost and wander around. If its a better drop it works good. But on a flat area you wouldnt need the depth track anyway. I havent needed to use the creek and shore track yet. I fish with my wife and son alot and the motor keeps me on the structure when my hands are full.(e. taking off fish baiting hooks) This helps a ton. I also like the backtrack feature. Catch a few fish and hit the resume button 2 times and the motor spins the boat around and follows the contour back. You'll smile when other guys are bouncing from 5ft to 25ft and your staying right at the depth you want.
