      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 .

Zercom color point

Recommended Posts

Guest

I bought one and it only worked for a few minutes. The store I bought it from said almost everyone they sold had the same problem. I hope you get a good one. I'm still waiting for mine to come back. I was wondering if anyone else had this same problem?

Lots of problems.
I was told Zercom had 85% return rate last year.
I too got a bad one, I exchanged it for a Vexliar. Best move I ever made.

I just received a new color point and it works great, I also have a vexilar fl 8 SLT the only difference that I see is the target separation the color point has a much better separation than the vexi. The color point also has a longer battery life almost 2to1, they both work great and I think you will be happy with ether one.

JasonK,

I'm surprised to hear that you have so much interference on the colorpoint when you fish near it with a vexy- the reason being that the colorpoint operates on a frequency of 150 and the vexy on 200. I fished in a small house yesterday near a colorpoint with my vexy yesterday with no problem for either of us. However, if you put another unit operating on 150 (i.e. a zercom) near his and both will light up like an X-mas trees rendering them totally useless. Conversly, the vexy can still be used when operated around another 200 unit.

Thankyou,Jasonk & Scoot for your input.I picked up my new color point on Wednesday and will try it out this weekend for pike & lakers on Williams fork reservoir here in COLORADO. I will let you guys know how it works. THANKS AGAIN, Dan DAN the fisherman.

I have a friend with a color point and one HUGE drawback is that it has no interference reduction like my vexilar so we can't fish near eachother.

I just wanted to let everyone know that I used my new color point on sunday. It works great! First I used the map that I had for the reservoir I was fishing. This helped me a lot although the water level was down about 35 ft. I found a good breaking point on the map and sleded out to the general area. Within minutes I had found a hard bottom flat at 50ft. I was marking fish right off the bottom. I put my 4" white gitzit tipped with a strip of sucker meat down the hole and turned on the range to 80'. I ajusted the gain so I could see my lure. It was amazing to be able to see my lure so close to the bottom. I was jigging slowly about 2" to a foot off the bottom when a red mark moved into view about 2' above my bait. I jigged 1' up and the red mark dove toward me and I held on tight. Bang ,the fish hit and I brought up a nice fat 22" laker. It went like this all day. Me and my buddy limited on Macs and then we fished shallow for pike. I caught a nice fat 36" female and released her. The day was great until the drive home, where we were caught in skier traffic for hours. I'm very impressed with my color point. So far so good. Dan DAN the fisherman

    • The building codes are really very important in order to keep the property safe. We need to upgrade the house acoording to these building codes.
    • And Del says ya can eat as many as ya want now!!!     
    • great cheap treat those smoked eggs.  
    • I actually prefer Honeycrisp, because of the sweet/tart flavor. Sweet tango ain't bad either. The others get TOO mushy and seem to lose flavor. But, it's a personal preference. Someone'll whine about there are better baking apples.  Made my apple roast the other day with the Honeycrisp, but put it in the crockpot instead of the oven. Came up with this 6-7 yrs ago.  And there's even a picture of it, since words give you so much difficulty, leech.            Reb's  Apple- pork roast


        One boneless 2-3 lb Pork Butt Roast Two cups  Fresh Apple Cider Rosemary Seasoned salt Black pepper to taste 4 oz Cinnamon Apple Sauce (These are the “Snak Pak” size cups) One  large Yellow Onion, sliced thin              Marinate the roast in the cider in a Zip-Loc bag, in the fridge, for 6-8 hours, turning frequently. Place roast in a greased baking dish, with some of the marinade. Sprinkle liberally with seasonings and lightly with the Rosemary.  Place thin layer of onions on top. Pour apple sauce over top. Put in a 300* oven for 45 mns to one hour, uncovered.  Cover and cook  for30- 45 mns- longer or until meat thermometer registers 155-160*. Do not overcook. Let sit covered for 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!  
    • @RebelSS, do you recommend any specific type of apples?
    • I forgot to put in the segment winners Spring        Juneau4 Summer     Henry's Heroes Playoff        BlackLundProV
    • Well quit hijacking the thread!!! we'll find someone serious sooner or later!
    • They can explain that over and over and I’m not buying it. I changed my ducer to the 12 like my 18. 
    • So your trying to work out the picture problem-right?
